A great day adventure.
Pros: Fabulous views of the Reno area and the surrounding mountains.
The elevation changes make for a good hike and interesting shots.
The baskets are well placed and there are white arrows on the top of each basket pointing to the next tee.
Also on the signs marking the tees there are white arrows pointing to mandos and the basket. These are accurate. You can see many of the baskets from the tee if you follow the arrows.
There are little explanations on many of the signs to help you locate the basket.
Not a lot of brush which is nice for finding your disc.
The owner is very nice.
Challenging shots. Be careful not to over shoot some of these. You may be going on a hike.
The homemade baskets are awesome.
There are yellow numbered markers high above the baskets that make them easier to spot.
Cons: The road can be difficult getting to the course. If it recently rained or snowed I wouldn't recommend playing at that time. Four wheel vehicles will make your drive much easier.
Not all the tee pads are finished but there is a rubber strip to help out.
Other Thoughts: Most baskets I didn't have a hard time finding because of the hints and arrows on the signs.
Some shots can be challenging. Be careful not to over shoot some of these. You may be going on a hike.
Spotters are a good idea on a few holes.
I didn't lose a disc and neither did the other two I played with.
It was a great day and the most fun I've had playing disc golf.
I definitely recommend this course if you have a day and a vehicle to go up there. Make sure to call first.
Print the maps, they will help. There are nice score cards too.

Pros: I've been playing disc golf for over 30 years, before there were baskets, before there were tailored discs and this is one of the most unique courses I've ever played on. This is also the first review I've ever written. Probably the last, but I feel compelled to support the inspiration that creating this course.
I've often thought about how to design a course with sparse trees and a desert landscape. Well this course does an excellent job. It has great elevation changes and fantastic views of the area.
The wind can be a factor, but since the wind is usually blowing in our face, it doesn't usually carrying the disc out into noman's land.
If you're in the area you should make an effort to play this course.
Cons: Very rugged and rocky. Navigating through it can be challenging. Bring boots.
Even through there were maps at each hole, some of the chains were hard to find. We threw at the wrong pole several times. The second time through will be better.
The road to the course could use a sign or two, just for reassurance that you're on the right road.
Some of the chains can be confusing since there are three courses on the site and they are all interwoven.
I could not find the donation pole/box and I would have liked to donate something.
Other Thoughts: Give yourself plenty of time to play this course. Following the directions on the road in. I tried to second guess the map and had to back track.
There is a lot to say about this course but you really need to experience it yourself.
