Pros: Having a local course is great. The transient population has mostly moved across the river. A ton of landscape work has been done and makes it a lot easier to find your disc. Enjoy having the extra holes. Course is getting better all the time. Good mix of holes.
Cons: No course map on site, can be confusing if you've never played. Didn't realize there was a new "9" until I ran into someone playing it. Businesses on the back half make for interesting bad throws. Tees on the bike/walking path make for a lot of non players in the way at times.
Other Thoughts: This course has come a long way. The people who have put in their time and work on this have really done a great job considering the location and resources they were given.

Pros: Fun local course! recent improvements from the locals have made this a decent place to play. The fairways have been cleared and new basket positions are available. Friendly people and easy to navigate.
Cons: The course is along a walking path, sometimes it is busy. Shared baskets make for some coordination with other players. The sport is new to town so some people don't quite "get it". Dont loose your disc in the willows!
Other Thoughts: A lot of hard work has gone into this course. If you are in the area, stop by and play it.

Pros: Its a course. 9 baskets and 15 holes. You play to the baskets from 2 approaches which changes the shots up a bit. Trees are a plus and are utilized as some basket locales are tucked into the trees. Most teepads are off the walking path so footing is not an issue.
Cons: Lots of OB with businesses past the walking path, rough towards the water makes it difficult to find discs. Small homeless problem as there are tents in the rough. No course map as of yet, makes determining where to start a little difficult.
Other Thoughts: The sport is new to the Elko area in before the closest course to them was in Ely. This course only has been in since May so its really in its infancy. There is a local club already and doubles on sundays at noon that is casual and could help bring more to the game, some brush has been cut out since the first time I played it . They have utilized the land they were given. Maybe if the sport takes off more maybe another in a better local can be built.

Pros: new baskets (simple DGA baskets)
easy to find location
friendly locals
Cons: so much overgrowth on the entire course
no actual tee pads, you mostly tee off from a running path
no signs anywhere, no map on site. they do provide one online but even that one was not very accurate
one hole 5 i believe is in a horrible spot where if you misthrow it will end up in some ones very sketchy back yard. its all RHBH throws going one direction and you turn around and its all flick or turnover shots the other way.
Other Thoughts: did really the best they could with what land was given to them to use. lots of ways to improve and hopefully the sport takes off in Elko and the city will allow the use of one of its many parks fire a real course to be put in. overall a pretty boring experience but at least its a start for the Northeastern Nevada region. if you are in the area stop by but i wouldn't recommend a special trip that way just yet if you have no other business in the area. also one more thing, i did notice some homeless people use this area as a home complete with tents, not sure if the city is aware of that but its something the course can't have if its to attract families into the sport.
