Pros: Well marked out
Cons: Only 9 holes
Course seemed fairly short till 7,8,9. Maybe mix in longer holes
Had to ask a local where to find the first tee, well marked from there though
Last 2 times I've played a photographer(same one both times) has turned the basket at 6 and the area around it into her personal photo studio. Also interferes with your tee shot on 5...
Also seen several cars parked in the fairway at 3, forces you to throw over them or go extreme turnover around them.
Would be nice if other park goers would pay attention to the disc golf.
Had several people deliberately walk out into the fairway on 9 and completely ignore my repeated requests to watch out because I wanted to throw.
Other Thoughts: Really a nice park setting but I wonder how much Carlton really wants it there with the continued issues with other park goers and a lack of signage designating areas as no parking to prevent potential hit cars...
Nice wine country course
Pros: -Nice baskets
-Bathrooms a plenty
-Cool layout in a nice city park
-Tee signs are good
Cons: -Very muddy during rainy season
-No tee pads
Other Thoughts: Not a single person throwing plastic other than the group of three that I was with. The course was in decent condition for the middle of February. It had rained pretty heavily the night before so the ground was a little moist. The tee pads are probably the one big con that I can think of, with them being bare ground. Each hole had decent signage that showed you the topography of the hole. The course is a par 27, 9 hole layout. Most pin locations are guarded pretty well by trees. I think the longest hole was 374 feet so bring a driver or two. I will be back quite regularly during the spring and summer.
Casualties Suffer Casual Tees
-Well made Horning's style homemade baskets are used at this course, they make a nice sound when hit.
-The course is in a nicely manicured park, with barbeques, swing-sets and sports fields.
-Bathrooms in the parking lot
-Relaxed course vibe, not so challenging but is not meant to be. Good course for beginners and casual players.
-Decent tee signs with distances and hole number.
-There are no teepads on the course and it's not obvious where the tees start and end. If pads are not an option wood or rocks should be installed to denote the fronts of the teeing areas.
- Non-golfing park users often times walk or play in the fairways of the course.
-It's not much of a destination course but, for the locals this a nice place to shoot some discs.
Neigborhood Nine Hole Course With Horning's Baskets!
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Wennerberg DGC occupies part of a larger park featuring pincic area and shelter, ballfields, and the flat, area with scattered mature trees where the course mostly plays. The tee pads are natural. They got a little slippery when we were hit with a rain shower. The signs are simple, listing the hole #, Par, distance and a basic map. The baskets are the heavy duty models made from truck rims which you'll find at all three Horning's Hideout courses. They're industrial strength strong, they catch just as well as any Discatcher and they make as nice melodious tone when your disc falls into the rim after catching chains.
The course is a basic recreational one in both length and difficulty. It's not going to present a grave challenge to anyone but then again it's not a pushover either.
Excellent little course to bring a family, newbie or a girlfriend or just for that practice round. There are a couple nice ACE runs as expected.
Cons: I'd like to see someone add, at the very least, a front board on the pads. At least, give players a limit on how far up they can tee it up on.
Other than that simple suggestion, this is another of those " It is what it is Courses". It's not trying to be too much or be too challenging. It just a fun little throw in a city park.
Other Thoughts: If I lived near this course, I could play a lot of rounds here before growing weary of it. The river might come into play on # 4 ??? but other than that, you'll probably never have to hunt for discs here. Enjoy it, Carlton, Oregon!

Nice little course
Pros: -Quiet (at least on a weekday)- no crowds
-Easy course, no hills, blackberries, etc.
-Great for a mid-range game
Cons: *Signs are a little off, sometimes not matching the topography. Easy to figure out where to go, though.
*No tee pads. Dirt.
Other Thoughts: A very easy course, practice. Good for working on your mid-range game. I was there on a Thursday afternoon in the summer, and there was no one around. I imagine on a weekend it would be a popular picnic/family park, though. If you plan on a McMinnville/Newberg trip, it's worth a quick little stop just to say you've played it. Not a lot of options for a power player, not many holes in the 300 range. Lots and lots of birdie & ace posibilities here. Overall, a fun little course.

nice warm up / practice course
Pros: Fairly easy to navigate.
Good course to practice different shots and warm up.
Great beginner course
Fairly well maintained park.
Flat (if you consider that a pro)
You shouldn't loose any discs here.
Cons: No tee pads
Not very challenging
Other Thoughts: This is a nice park that is not crowded to come and just practice. I've been wanting to practice a few shots and this place is perfect for that. It's an easy course for beginners to play on and develop skills for harder courses. First time I played it, I shot 1 under par so it's fairly easy.

The pride of Carlton
Pros: This is a nice clean well kept park. There are several birdies to be had, but there are many fine trees to thwart many of your efforts. We had the course to ourselves for 2 rounds on a perfect sunny Friday around noon outing.The course is easy to follow and the baskets are good, the Hornings Hideout variety. There is a good variety of shots to throw.Litter was very scarce.
Cons: The tee pads are dirt but played just fine [ in dry weather]. There are no holes that you could call epic although it was fun to play. It's not a destination course as it is fairly easy and only 9 holes, but it is a great addition to the local area.
Other Thoughts: It's great to have another course and I will likely play it again if I'm in the vicinity. Thanks to those who made the effort to get this course in.
