Along the Mighty Colorado River
Pros: This course is a well rounded course that exhibits several of Course Designer Rob Pine's Design elements. He likes to design a course that is accessible to all, whether playing a casual round as a new player, or an experienced player looking for a degree of difficulty.
-9 Holes with three separate teepads each. This gives the course large amounts of replayability.
-Short Tees allow work on your short game, and provide a less stressful round for kids/girlfriends/new players
-Plays alongside the Colorado River, with water coming into play on 3 holes. This course gives you the danger of playing near water but there is a sand bank beyond the pin placements and shallow water allowing an easy recovery of your discs.
- Quite a few holes play on grass (this is arizona and grass feels like a luxury)
-Elevation comes into play on more than half the holes.
- Many park amenities with multiple bathrooms, picnic tables, and gazebos.
- color coordinated next tee concrete blocks are put into the ground at each basket.
Cons: -At a public park that supposedly gets busy in the summer months with its proximity to the Colorado River. I have yet to play in the summer (it hasnt been installed long enough) but there could be pedestrian concerns.
Other Thoughts: Rob Pine knew Steady Ed when he was younger. One of his core Disc Golf Values is the "He who has the most fun wins." Pine definitely employed that value to a great degree of success in his design of Riverview DGC. It is highly recommended to any traveler's through. (Remember to play it in tandem with Mountainview DGC only 5-7 minutes away!)
Before the Summer of 2010 Bullhead City had no Disc Golf Courses. Now there are two high quality 9 hole courses with multiple tees available.
Under the links tab is an incredible map by Kingman's Josh Weum, as well as a course home page linked to the kingmandiscgolf.com site. Here they keep updated recorded aces on the course, as well as course info, and records from each of the different tees.
