A fun challenge
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Beautiful setting, a hike in the woods, plenty of variation. Great views of Brive. A fun course for average to experienced players, doable but difficult in places for beginners. A great test of accuracy with plenty of trees. Not overly long, but some opportunities for distance drives. In the past few months, the course has installed some new baskets (which now have hole numbers on them) and tees which have made it a great place to play!
Cons: Some long/confusing hole to tee walks.
On weekend and holiday afternoons, the course becomes difficult to play because of other park-goers who are unaware of the disc golf course around them. When the park is busy, holes 1, 2, 6, 8, 13, and 18 can be nearly impossible to play.
Make sure to download the map before you go: http://discgolfbriviste.jimdo.com/parcours/
Don't wear shorts, as a wayward shot is likely to find thorns.
When in doubt, stick with straight shots, there's plenty of room for trouble here.
Try to visit on weekdays or weekend mornings, when the crowds are thinner.

Pretty park and good workout
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -Some challenging basket positions
-Hilly and good workout walking around
-Fairly easy to get to from major autoroutes
Cons: -Hard to figure out the course layout, even with the map of the course
-Basket missing on one hole
-Grass tees, not marked, no signage
Other Thoughts: It was easy to find using the GPS. Without the GPS, be sure to come up Rue Louis Plantadis from Avenue Jean Jacques Rousseau to the north. I don't think you can get here from the south. While it was not easy to figure out the entire course layout, and we unfortunately didn't have time to explore more of this pretty park and course, it was a lot of fun to play the holes we did find. The view of Brive-La-Gaillarde is very nice too.

Course resides in a park atop a ridge
Pros: Pretty course in a beautiful setting. The park, set along the top of a ridge, is well maintained and groomed, but the course veers into wild territory as well. Nice mix of easier and more technical holes, with good variety of length and terrain. Gorgeous vistas throughout. Spacious course; a pleasure to walk.
Cons: Despite the description published here, the course is only nine holes, not 18...and the basket on hole #4 was missing entirely! (Just disturbed ground).
There is a much better map here:
A good map is essential, as there is no signage on the course, tees are not marked, and baskets have no indicators (I like courses that have hole #'s atop the baskets, facing the tees, especially when the course is cleverly squeezed into a tight space - not a problem here).
We came up from Cahors and had no trouble finding the course; just plugged Parc des Perrieres into the Garmin GPS and went straight to it.
