Fun Beginner Course

Pros: +A short course made for kids and beginners to play. It is great for new players or players that can't throw as far.
+Map at the start and good flow make for an easy relaxing navigation of the course.
+Nice tees, shorter but long enough for the length of this course.
+Some fun semi-technical course with many pins placed near or behind trees. Not a ton of flight path obstacles but final shot placement is important.
+Solid closing holes that were a lot of fun.
+Many ace runs here.
Cons: -Very short and not much length variation.
-Tees are short.
-Could lose a disc in the river or even in a backyard. The backyards are way too close to some pins. Beginners will put their discs into a backyard for sure unless they are very careful.
-Course could be dangerous if there were many other park users or disc golfers. Fairways are pretty close together and sidewalks come into play.
Other Thoughts: +This is the best course in the area for a quick round. Sheridan college is overall more fun and a bigger challenge but will take much longer to play.
+This course is worth a stop as long as you don't expect a championship 18. If you look at what it is, you won't be disappointed.

Pros: ---Awesome teepads (though they are short) with cool designs and sponsor etched right in
---Quality baskets
---Good atmosphere and location...local walkers were super friendly
---Easy to find your way around
Cons: ---Too short to be a real challenge for an experienced player
---A few crossing fairways, and a couple shots over the sidewalk
---Baskets are raised a good 6 inches (if not more) higher than a normal basket...no idea why but it certainly doesn't add anything to the course
---Many holes play right up against people yards...not a good idea for a kids/begginers course like this
---Same as above, but with a playground in lieu of yards
Other Thoughts: I pestered my wife to stop here as we were driving from Montana to Colorado, mostly so I could get a break from the car. I just brought a mid and a putter and owned the course, including 3 chainouts that may have ended up as aces if I had brought a towel (it was pretty snowy today.)

This is a very easy course. Like, ridiculously easy. There's only one hole over 300 feet and they call it a par 4. So you can tell its made for kids. I didn't see a school nearby, but if there is, this is the perfect place to take a gym class for the EDGE Program. Great for kids...not really for anyone else, so I just can't rate it higher.

Still, kudos for the city of Sheridan for putting in a course there.
