Pros: This is a well maintained park. The baskets are nice, the mats aren't anything to write home about but overall it's very well kept.
*Not busy at all. You don't have to worry about hitting people.
*An good variety of shots are needed off the tee. They have a few baskets hiding behind trees.
*Although there are trees in the park there's not too many. Just enough to force to to shape shots but not too difficult to avoid.
*No underbrush so unless you get a disc stuck in a tree, you aren't going to lose any discs.
Cons: *No signage what-so-ever.
*No scorecards (everything is a 3 par BTW).
*Not very difficult
*Uneven rubber tee pads
Other Thoughts: This course is great for the new disc golfer to an intermediate looking to hone his/her skills. It's not very long for the experienced player. It does have a few ace run holes for everyone.
I thought there were the perfect amount of trees. There were definite gaps you need to hit and you can't let the disc get too high on most of the holes.
This course wouldn't be worth the drive by itself but if you combine it with Rotary Park and go in with the mindset of working on your mids/approaches you will enjoy your morning.

Tedford Park in East Wenatchee is a mostly flat and lightly wooded nine hole course located in a large grassy park, adjacent to sports fields/courts, playground, and school. Designed in 2011 by Todd Saunders, this course was intended to be the big brother to its sister course Rotary Park just a few miles away.
This course on average is longer and more difficult, adding variety with its use of natural obstacles. Multiple baskets are tucked behind or near trees making putts more difficult at times if misjudged off the tee. Holes range from 179-367 feet, with the use of rubber mats and Mach V baskets. Course is well manicured and litter free.
Favorite Hole(s): Hole #3 - Blind 263' shot that drops in elevation slightly with a pin positioned under a long hanging tree near the road. The hole has a few larger trees in the fairway and is easily approachable with a mid, but throwing a roller is the way to go!
During baseball season it appears the baseball fence comes up, along with garbage cans and picnic benches making DG a bit more congested and most likely overcrowded due to the warmer weather. However, it says something about the course design that it allows to be played all season long!
Bathrooms are located in the middle of the course and when open is a huge bonus. Unfortunately, it closes sometime in the fall through the winter during the colder seasons. Seems a little early in my opinion but is understandable.
My wife and son came with me to play both courses in Wenatchee on a mini side trip while visiting Leavenworth for the weekend and it was well worth my time. Although neither may have been worth it by itself, they were worth playing together to make an afternoon out of it. They were both fun recreational/intermediate style courses that allowed for several ace runs and "roller" type approaches. Both courses allowed me to play a relaxed style game with little to no worries regarding location, course navigation, or difficulty for a toddler. The park system in Wenatchee does a stellar job with the room they have and their efforts, along with that of the local club/designers, is much appreciated by the community and those who are traveling from out of town. Thank you!

Pros: Green lush grass
Clean course with no litter
Good layout of course for the small space
Very nice baskets. all where clearly marked with the hole numbers and faced the tee pads. still difficult to read from tee pad
Cons: Uneven tee pads. some where ripped and missing.
No signage at the tee pads to guide you.
Small park behind a baseball field which makes for no open space for Non disc golfers to use.
Other Thoughts: Nice easy course with lots of shade. Lots of other activities happen here. Monday in the late afternoon there was baseball practice going on, a youth cheerleading squad and a youth soccer practice as well. Hole one was unplayable from the tee due to children playing soccer.
