Pros: This course is a lot of fun to play. It provides a wide veriety of shots and distances, with elevation changes. It is set in a quiet area with very little traffic. The thick tree cover creates a unique atmosphere.
Cons: No tee pads, just dirt. I didn't see any drinking fountains close to the course.
Other Thoughts: check tudg.org for a course map

Pros: challenging design, good use of terrain with long and short technical shots mixed in, as of 6-26-07 course is lightly used.
Cons: 09-10-13 tile teepads on most holes, no teesigns. no city park support.
fairways one, two, five and twelve a dumping grounds for city street maintenance department......
the area is on an old dumping grounds, no amount of cleanup will fix the garbage issue.
Other Thoughts: time will tell if this course becomes one of the better courses in utah or wallows in mediocracy.....city officials need to change their point of views for this to happen........
03-18-09 an update for this park is in order. Bathrooms are open in the parking lot in the spring, summer, and fall. This course is better established now, playing through mature trees and foliage, something fairly rare for utah. The first hole starts across the grassy area from the parking lot about 200 yards away where the city dumping area is. There are relatively tight lines of flight from the tee pads on most of the holes because of the trees and bushes. Water hazard on hole 3 in the spring and parts of the summer. For the most part it's a flat course, except for holes 6, 7, and 8. The trail system for the course is considerably better, a lot of volunteer work has been done to improve safety and accessibility. For the professional player who can accurately throw 350 to 400 foot, every tee shot can reach the basket with the right shot, except for holes 12 and 17. Lesser skilled players will do almost as well unless they stray off the fairways which are much better from two years ago.
An average pro will score anywhere from -1 to -6, depending on how well he/she is playing that day. An average recreational player will be over par depending on the skill level that person has. This course is not so much a big arm course, but a course that demands accuracy and a high level of control, especially with your drives. The tee pads are still dirt so that needs to be taken into consideration for consistency. It should take about an hour and a half for one person to play the course.
The city whose property this course is on still allows the disc golf course to exist, but no support other than that. There has been considerable work making the course cleaner and "friendlier" to play, but still no permanent tee pads, or tee signs. This is not anyones fault, because there is still an uncertainty as to whether some of the holes will exist in the future as it stands. Holes 1, 2, 3, 5, and 12 conflict with the dumping areas put aside for the cities' maintenance department. Holes 4 through 18 compete with paint ballers and a bmx track.
Even with those negatives, this is still a fun course to play. The paint ballers wont interfere with you and the kids in the bmx area will stay out of your way, if you let them know you are playing through. This course is different from the other courses in the area because all the big trees and bushes so it has an east coast, foresty feel to it. Its never crowded with disc golfers, partly due to the fact its kind of hard to find from I-15. A GPS unit will help you find it or accurate directions. Even with the detractions this course inherently has, its still a recommended course for anyone travelling through the area. Most better local disc golfers play here since the level of difficulty is higher than other courses around.

Pros: Course rewards the accurate as well as those with big arms. Much more challenging that other courses in the state. Creative use of terrain in regards to elevation and variety of useful shots. Since much of it is played in the woods wind is not as large of a factor. The baskets are all in good condition.
Cons: Can be confusing if one doesn't know their way around. Definitely could be marked better. May be difficult for new players. The city uses the area as a dumping ground so sometimes there are random piles of roadwork debris.
Other Thoughts: They definitely taken time recently to redesign the course in recent years with different pin placements and teepads. Love it!
