Pros: The Port Angeles Disc Golf Club has their first course in the ground and so far so good. There are currently nine holes with a couple of secret ones back near a pond and there is talk of expansion to eighteen holes. The course is easy to find, right across the street from the convience store that sells discs and has free course maps.
Each basket has two tee placements, which you can see by the wooden stakes in the ground that say either "A" or "B" tee written on them with sharpie and have different colored little ribbons tied around to be able to see them and help navigation. The land is being used fairly well at this point with lots of obstacles including trees and log cabins, and a creek guarding one basket and looming over another tee pad.
Holes one, three, seven, eight and nine were the best of the bunch that obviously had a ton of thought put into them with excellent uses of obstacles and cool basket locations. Hole eight is the shortest hole on the course and possibly the easiest to bogey as there is barely a route through the dense trees here but if you can get it through it's an easy birdie.
Cons: One of the flaws with this course is navigation, it is crucial that you bring a map the first time you play as the walk outs alone would make it almost unplayable. The stakes that locate where to throw from are missing on holes six and seven so you just have to use the map and throw closest to where you think they are. The tee pads are all natural but most of them didn't bother me to do a run up on them on but if it's been raining I can see where they could get slick. I was there during the middle of the week in the morning and there was no disc golfers but there were people camping out near fairways, a park ranger and other people working on the park and the baseball fields which is a good sign that the park will stay nice but it makes me wonder if playing here on the weekends if non disc golfers would get in your way.
Other Thoughts: A nicely done first course by the club out there and the people around that I talked to sounded very enthusiastic about having disc golf around them which is awesome. The club has had a couple of fund raising tournaments here now to raise money for baskets and they already have nine in and maybe nine more are on the way. I would be glad to have this place here as it's the only place in town and not a horrible course by any standards.
