The Emerald Jewel
Pros: Course is well maintained
The Emerald Disc Golf Club meets every monday at 5pm, and they are very helpful for beginners
course is set for improvements (teee pads, new baskets) by the end of Summer 2010 ... The EDGC has raised thousands to do this..and the City of Mesa is pitching in 3500 to 4000 bucks =]
Cons: currently it is not well marked and the dirt/grass tee pads are very worn down
the baskets are very old and a lot of discs bounce out
Other Thoughts: I love this course. it's pretty wide open for players with big arms. The EDGC has been shooting around ideas for adding more trees.

Close to Home Fun
Pros: We love this little course. It is close to home, not crowded, spaced out nicely to avoid a tangle of projectile missiles of destruction. It is cool. Lots of test for your driver (again, nothing to really let it rip for you upwards of 400 guys, but I can't throw it that far anyway), and some good technical parts (remember, I am a newbie) with hills and trees.
Plus, there is a great local club that works this course, and they are super cool for new folks to learn the game.
All around, if you are new to the sport (or seasoned at it and just need a nice place to open up and practice) this is a great course. We love it, and play it at least a few times a week.
Cons: The signage of this course is horrible. If you need proof that Mesa is out of money when compared to say Chandler... this course will prove it. You can basically figure it out for the front nine, but when you turn to do it in reverse, you need to have someone tell you the code...
Other Thoughts: Still.... close to home. Easy bike ride, play and bike home. No crowds. That combination makes this one a winner.
