Sadly Going Away
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Concrete pads, fairly easy to navigate, good hole diversity.
Cons: Multi-use area that shares space with a ball-golf driving range and a biking trail so you had to watch out for people participating in those areas.
Other Thoughts: The land this course was on was owned by the University of Idaho and they have kicked the disc golf course off their land. The City of Sandpoint has stepped up and given access to some of their land nearby (<2 miles away on Baldy Mt. Rd.). The project is currently about 40-50% complete as of 2/2014. 1/2 of the baskets have been moved and the fairways are mostly in place. They're going to finish out fairways and basket installation before finishing up with pads/signs.

Pros: variable terrain, and nicely maintained
Cons: some tee boxes are hard to find at first
Other Thoughts: this course plays through the research center and allows players to walk through all sorts of types of trees and even some domesticated huckleberries. really nice when they mow. the multi use feature is also great and there never really seems to be too heavy demand.

Pros: In an Ag Extension area so there is a very cool variety of trees planted in farm plots. A very different forested look. Some holes also play in the forested verge of the local river so get some fairly thick natural forest with marsh if you overthrow.
While permanent signs aren't up yet it is fairly well marked with paper plates at Pro/Am tees and showing way to next tee. Very cool sculpture in Parking lot for donations and good maps and scorecard available at kiosk altho map printable from here was slightly easier to follow.
Nice selection of tees and pars so players of different levels will be challenged but still have fun.
Good News! Met one of the guys helping with course and were told Tees are almost done. Yay! Stopped by and most of the main tees(not alts) are done with paving stones and look great. Very well done and look forward to throwing off them. :-)
Cons: Only real complaints are about level of finish(temp signs, no trashcans) and I know this will continue to improve as this is a very new course. Some shots through tree plots lack a defined lane, but I am not completely sure this should be a con as trees are fairly widely spaced on the worst of these.
Other Thoughts: We really enjoyed playing this course, totally worth the drive up from Spokane. A very nice addition to the North Idaho courses. I look forward to playing it in the future and expect when it is finished will rate as a 4 or 4.5. I will update review as this happens. :-)
WARNING!!!! This course is gone and needs to be marked RIP. Baskets moved to different land about a mile away, course called Baldfoot. Worth playing.

What a Great Addition to North Idaho Disc Golf
Pros: Being that this was an Experimental Agriculture plot for U of Idaho, one of the coolest features is teeing off and driving into a whole host of different tree groves, everything from Oaks to Walnut to Thick Pines. The shot making required is above par, need a host of shots to play this course well. While it is mostly flat, the little elevation that they had they utilized, whether teeing off down a hill or placing fairways and pins precariously close to some very severe drop offs. The handful of times i have played this course have been fun, challenging and rewarding. Thanks
Cons: I would have given this course a 4 but the tee pads are horrible, the gravel they used is not compacted and makes for some very sketchy drives...i hope they remedy this as twisted ankles are no fun. All the rest of the cons,,,heavy grass and tee signs ect...will be taken care of over time. As this course seasons it will only get better. Also i believe a larger parking lot will be needed as the course gains in popularity, you could probably only get at most 10-15 cars in there.
Other Thoughts: Great Addition to North Idaho Disc Golf, look forward to some tourneys. Good job Rick!
