Pros: Sister City is like 2 courses in 1; easy park course on 1-8, then a wild safari course on 9-18.
Some cross canyon shots that are really cool. Even weak arms like mine can launch a 400'+ drive.
Lots of elevation on holes 9-18.
Cons: Back 9 is very brushy.
- Back 9 is a bit confusing in its layout. Print the map off the "Links/File" tab before you go.
There is a walking path that passes through the back 9, so watch out for foot traffic.
Other Thoughts: This is a very interesting course that starts with some short birdie/ace holes followed by several challenging wild west holes. Holes 9, 10 and 16 are really fun cross canyon shots that give you a chance air it out. #16 is really long (500'+) and very brushy; use a spotter and/or watch your disc very carefully on this one. In fact, most of the back 9 has heavy brush, so be prepared to take turns spotting or spend time disc hunting. You could combine this course with Ross Park or Bengal Ridge or do all 3 if your arm is up to it.

 Great Variety

Pros: This course shows a very good variety of Idaho (Pocatallo) disc golf. It is kinda of like taking Bengal Ridge and Ross Park and combing them. However, this course definitely has its own flavor.

The first 7-19 holes are very relaxing, short, very birdiable grass holes. They warm you up for a challenging back 9.

The longer, desert terrain back 9 also shows a great mix of throws. Including some very long holes. You have many chances to throw some huge crushes with very pretty flight paths. However there is a fair amount of good use of the trees and brush to guard baskets and terrain.
Cons: Being a young course, it does not yet have tee signs, or very obvious trails. It is currently very easy to get lost or confused due to some blind holes. However, this should be fixed as upgraded and matured.

May show a few issues with tournament play... as some of the flight paths may cross... as well as a couple of tee placements coming into play with other holes flight pattern.
Other Thoughts: Greatly enjoyed playing this course, and is a great addition to Pocatello Disc Golf. Showing great recreational play as well as very challenging pro play.

Pros: Lots of variety, long downhills, big turnover, hyzer, technical and open. The top is shorter than I would like to see, but you use what you have.
Cons: Needs tee pads. Some blind shots could lead to lost discs. Still being developed.
The front 9 was developed to take some of the pressure off of Roos Park where very large groups and hordes of beginners take a very long time to finish 9 short holes. Thus the short park holes.
Other Thoughts: This course is unlikely to see a lot of action on the back 9 due to the length. many groups opt to play just the fron once or twice rather than the whole 18. If the top is crowded jump on at 12 and play through the back.

Tournaments may experience some cross play on holes if inexperienced players lead the group the wrong way after driving or between holes.

Pros: Lots of variety!! Elevation changes, good use of terrain and natural barriers, and a good mix of distance and technical shots. Some unique shots and isolated baskets, such as 9, and 10. I played in the middle of the day and there were not many people besides disc golfers. People are friendly and helpful if you are trying to figure out the course for the first time. This course is new and my rating will go up when the tee pads and signs are installed. I posted this review to help with navigation during construction. See Below.
Cons: It would be unfair to list the cons until the course is completed. If you don't like long sagebrush holes then play the front nine, if you don't like parks then play the back, but if you like disc golf then play all 18.
Other Thoughts: If you are familiar with the other courses in Pocatello, this course is like a mix of Ross and Bengal. Whatever you like or dislike about those courses you will get here. This course is going to complement the other courses in Pocatello. It is well designed and has challenges for all skill types. Bring water and wear good shoes. There are a few steep parts to go up and down and from hole 8-18 you are hiking.

The following is to help navigate until the holes are numbered and the signs are installed:

Holes 1-7 are in the grass on the North side of the park. Holes 8-10 are on the south side, and 11-18 are in the brush to the east.

The tee box for hole #1 is at the south-west corner of the pavilion, the basket is directly west on the edge of the grass and ledge. Holes 2-7 wrap around the park and navigate easily. Hole eight starts at the south-east corner of the pavilion and you throw directly south to the end of the grassy patch. The basket for hole 9 is the one you pass on the way into the park that sits on the 15 ft ledge by the road. Hole 10 cuts back across the entrance road, 11 is blind over the hill parallel with the road. Then go up towards parking lot and you'll find the tee box for 12, the basket is a LONG way north so let it rip. The holes are connected from there on to 18.
