Pros: Clean, well kept course with great concrete pads and good signage.
Terrain is flat, but great utilization of mature trees to protect baskets.
Memorable holes:
#2- 250 ft throw with large tree about 30 ft in front of basket (can't see basket from tee)
#3 Big left dog leg with solid pine protection on left
#7 Short (180) between 2 tight pines with the remnants of a white birch in front of the basket (they cut most of it down)
#8 Blind throw which bends right, one branch sticking out in throw path- ought to be high enough but many seem to find it!!
#9 Two big trees in middle of fairway or you can throw a big left to right bend around them...
#11 big weeping willow hanging in front of basket
Cons: I have none.... lived in Grand Forks for three years, played it over 100 times... was my favorite course in the area.
Other Thoughts: Play it twice in an hour for a 24 hole outing..... Course is very enjoyable....

Pros: Tee pads and baskets are in great shape. The Innova baskets catch discs very well. The course is well signed and very easy to navigate. There are a variety of left- and right-curving shots which add a little bit of challenge. Not as busy as Lincoln which is right across the river.
Cons: The course is very short and some of the pars are too high. There is a par 4 that is under 300 feet. On a couple holes you have to be careful not to throw into the road. Some of the tee boxes get in the way of previous holes which can be a problem if you are playing behind other people. Course is very flat.
Other Thoughts: Fun and easy course that can be played quickly if you are in a rush. Great place to work on midrange and putting as well. This is one of my favorite courses in Grand Forks along with the regular course at Lincoln.

Good Short Course for Form Learning/Improvement

Pros: - Tee Pads are all cement and great condition
- Baskets clean and chains in good condition
- Some slight shot shaping required
- Great for rounds over the lunch hour!
Cons: - Flat
- Very easy course
- Some repetitive shots
- Not too many obstacles
Other Thoughts: This is a great course for developing good form and improving it! Bring your mid-ranges and/or putters. Once you can master the course with those only, your form is pretty good! Great for those rounds where you have less than 1 hour to play!

 Nice Short Option

Pros: Nice baskets, tee pads, signs. Nice park with mature trees and clean area.
Cons: Short course with some pretty short holes. All very flat and wide open.
Other Thoughts: As for the course itself, all the holes are reacheable, for intermediate players and it's all very wide open...not a major challenging course but still very enjoyable. While only the thrid best course in Grand Forks, still worth the round...if nothing else as a warm up...

Pros: -Decent tees and baskets.
-Parking lot by hole 1.
-Good flow to the course.
-Good signage, always knew where to go next.
-Very hard to lose a disc. Maybe if you threw it high into a pine tree.
Cons: -Very flat.
-Holes short and don't vary much.
-No risk/reward holes.
-Some holes have no challenge, baskets sitting in a grassy area.
-No bathrooms, drinking fountains, garbage cans.
-You have to be careful to not throw onto the road or hit pedestrians on the popular trail that flows through the course.
-Could be flooded in the spring due to its proximity to the Red River of the North.
Other Thoughts: This area is prone to flooding so this is a good place for a disc golf course. It is alright, the 3rd best course in the GF area.

Pros: The basket and the tee boxes are in excellent shape. Very nice layout of the course, using the trees around some of the baskets. Some tee shots are for right hander and some for lefty. Lots of trash cans.
Cons: The park is next to a major road. Could lose a disc in the road. Windy at times. Holes 11 and 12 are close to a wooded area that drops off. Lots of lost disc.
Other Thoughts: I did not see any restrooms and the parking lots is small. There is room to go bigger. If you over throw on #11 your disc is head down towards the river. I really like the right and left shots.All of the down trees have been cleaned up.
