West Wetland in September
Pros: The only course within 2 to 3 hours of Yuma.
Well marked holes.
Cons: Very hot in summer, no shade.
Open design with no real obstacles other than the mandos.
No signs other than the concrete Ts.
Hole 4 is nearly impossible to stay in bounds going around the mando. Makes a 90 degree turn 10 feet or so from the road.
Other Thoughts: The course seems to have changed since it's original build. The map and score card don't represent what is now there. Some holes have been lengthened, to make a few par 4s and maybe par 5 on the 4th hole.

Fun for a toss
Pros: Baskets- New DISCatcher baskets in great shape.
Parking- Lots of parking in north paved lot near playground or dirt lot near tee #1
Terrain- Well-maintained, all-grass course. Perfect for rollers, challenging to control skips.
Cons: Tees- Grass tees with a concrete bumper at the head of each. Okay.
Signs- No signs
Terrain- With the exception of a few holes at the east end, this is mostly all wide open terrain. Playing the mandos keeps it interesting.
Other Thoughts: I played this course in October of 2009, about a month after the city completed installation--way to go Yuma!
This is a fun place to go out and toss a few but the wide open terrain and very few trees really limit its challenge and interest.
To spice things up, there's a unique use of mandos in the course design. There are permanent yellow posts in the ground that must be played as mandatories (1, 2, and 9 go left of post, 4, 6, and 8 go right).
In addition, there are some tricky and tight OB shots where and errant throw means you're over a fence and your disc floats away down the canal or skips out in the road (450' #5, for example).
All in all, while this is not a tourney course, it's a great start for Yuma and a fun little place to fling a few.
