 Short Course with nice Elevations

Pros: Course is fairly easy to follow, nice tee pads.

I particularly like the changes in elevation that let you soar a couple of really long shots.

Fairly close to another course down in Springville, if this one is not enough or too crowded.
Cons: Too short! (and I like short courses) Pity they lost the other holes.
Other Thoughts: The pavilions always seem to be occupied but haven't had trouble with pedestrians in the fairways.

This used to be the only course I knew about in Utah County. Glad a few more have sprung up. =)

Pros: A fairly easy course, great place to bring beginners. Most of the course is in the lower part of the park, which is grassy, making for a nice stroll. For someone with limited playing experience, I was able to make par on most of the holes, though putting difficulties often was an obstacle ;)
Cons: As other reviews have mentioned, the park can be quite busy during warmer months, and park-visitors can impede sometimes. See below for comments on the current status of the course:
Other Thoughts: The course is divided into several areas with baskets: The lower, grassy area has 6 baskets (1-3 and 7-9). Another 3 baskets (4-6) are in an upper area that has more of a grassland feel, i.e. tall grasses and weeds. They have begun some sort of development in the upper area (I believe that it is for sports fields related to the park), that entailed them removing all of the concrete tee-pads and the baskets from that area. They have also removed the basket for hole 3 and the basket for hole 7, which leaves only 4 playable holes in the park, as of this review.

Pros: Great course for beginners. Back in the day there was signage but it has since deteriorated and gone away. Pads are concrete, terrain is parklike surrounded by condos (used to be wilderness 7 years ago). Tees are relatively short. Even hole 4 at 500 ft is shorter than you think because it is a down hill shot. It is a great feeling though when you park it next to the pin on that one.
Cons: The problem with this course is that there are too many non disc golfers in the park that dont understand what the sport is or the dangers of getting nailed in the head with a driver. They will camp out in fairways or whatever. Weekends are the worst for this. To compensate, the course was redesigned a few years ago taking out some of the more technical shots (over a pond with a large ominous disc eating tree), and pushing the holes to the back of the course into what is left of the wilderness area (this is where the brush gets thick). The course lost its luster when they did these changes, but it is still playable.
Other Thoughts: Great course for beginners to teach them to play the sport, Pros will probably lose the feeling of challenge after a couple of times playing.

Pros: -Concrete pads
-Both manicured, grassy fairways and rustic, natural terrain
-Elevation. This course uses what is has to the fullest extent. Hole 2 is a fun one with a touch of elevation loss across a large grassy bowl. Some radically uphill (and often blind) drives and one or two in which the elevation loss makes the thrower toy with the idea of discing down.
-Risk. A few holes play along a creekbed that is THICK with stinging nettle and other nasty plants and disc golfer-eating flies. Lots of places to lose plastic, even with a good drive.
-Plenty of parking
-Restrooms right by tee 1
-Friendly locals
Cons: -Lack of signage. I couldn't imagine navigating this course without a guide. A few blind baskets compound the issue.
-Weedy fairways. In the name of all things holy, get the local club together and a few weed-wackers and take care of that waist-high underbrush.
-18 holes playing to 16 baskets.
Other Thoughts: Neat layout requiring lots of three-dimensional planning. Friendly locals. Overall a fun course, but the constant searching for drives got old quick. I played with guides and I suggest you do the same as hole and course maps are hard to find (as are discs. Use spotters;)).

I found Bicentennial to be a great Provo option. It requires a lot of thought and has space to open up and rip it.

Pros: Good mixture between Park and Mountain side.

Trees are basically the only hazards, except the few times that going between power poles in a mando!

Varying holes of distance, elevation, and hazards creates unique course with well placed holes.

Holes and pads for most part are in great condition.
Cons: Without our own map would have gotten lost, poorly marked.

The mountain side could be kept up a little better and guide players thru course better.
Other Thoughts: Good people up there, left my Firebird at practice basket (or 18 it depends) n got called within half hour.
