Rustic/Primitive Course By The River!
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Lawson Bar DGC reminds me of someone's own little course they built in their backyard. It's primitive! It's rustic! It's quaint! And it's enjoyable and unique!
The designer has gone to a lot of work here, carving out tee pads, making sure there are navigational aids to help you get around the course.
The targets are these homemade metal, hanging thingees. They are about three feet high thus presenting a fairly small target. Some of the pads are carpet while others are natural. There seems to Red, White and Blue tee pads. I couldn't always find all three. There are some great homemade benches
# 8 was my favorite hole easily. It's about a 200' ACE run with the target secured to a rock outcropping near the river's ledge. In mid-August, there wasn't much chance of landing in water. At other times of the year, water would definitely come into play.
Cons: Homemade targets instead of baskets.
Very primitive conditions.
River levels could effect course in winter and spring.
Holes are short.
# 11 hole felt more like an afterthought.
Other Thoughts: This course is obviously a labor of love for someone. It probably doesn't deserve the 2.5 rating I'm giving it but I can't help myself. The course is truly unique and I had a good time playing it.

Break from I-5
Pros: It's good to have something started here. A few of the holes are good. Hole 10 is the best with a defined route with the basket on a volcano guarded by trees. There are various carpets laid out that give adequate footing. A river is adjacent to the course which will come in handy on a hot summer day. It's about 3 minutes off of the I-5 Freeway.
Cons: It is very easy to lose a disc here. A spotter will be very helpful especially if you want to go for a long bold shot. There seem to be 3 tee off areas for most holes. and it can get very confusing as some have a carpet to throw from and others do not. Some of the tee areas don't seem to have a very logical place to throw especially if you want to find your disc. Some of the directional arrows point the wrong way. There are some hideous stickery places that your disc can land. There were occaisonal foul odors like dead fish or animals. Somebody needed to be 1st to review this so there you have it.
Other Thoughts: With some work it will become a nicer course but for now Roseberg or Grants Pass will give you much more disc golfing enjoyment.
