Pros: This course is located on church grounds just off of highway 101. The 9 holes play down and around the church property. The church appears to be very welcoming to all disc golfers wanting to play on their course. The course is scattered with some evergreen trees causing you to throw over most of the time if you're wanting a good line to the basket. This is a good contrast to some of the other courses in the area that force you to find a line through. Navigation is pretty easy. The course flows quite well with maybe one exception. There's a map right by the first tee which makes it easy to just snap a picture with a smartphone and look at it throughout the round. Tee signs are lacking, but quite easy to see surprisingly. Course design is what really surprised me here. I came thinking I was just going to play another church's 9 hole pitch and putt, but it was actually a challenge in some places. Trees are placed in just the right places to make you think, but not too many to make you feel like you were just firing at random. Greens had trees protecting them, but not overcrowding them. 8 of the holes were able to be birdied, but you really had to work at it. This course doesn't just hand out 2's to you like a lot of 9 holers.
Cons: Tee pads are not very good. They could be worse, but they could also be much much better. They're often put on small slopes which make it difficult to get a good solid drive on. Tee signs were also lacking not even providing the distance. The baskets are homemade and are quite tall. I didn't happen to have a spitout but I can see how it could easily happen. Hole 8 has a playground near it which could become a problem if kids are playing. It's right next to the highway which I guess you could consider a plus for it being easy to find, but I found the noise a bit annoying while playing.
Other Thoughts: This course really surprised me! It's a fun little course to play if you're in the area, but personally, I wouldn't really travel to this course. For the land that they had to work with, it was utilized very well. I'd definitely play this again if I was ever stopped in Sequim.
