Pros: the course is well signed and easy to follow. there are enough obstacles and doglegs to keep things interesting, not every hole is a straight shooter. the course is well maintained and there are not a lot of places to loose a disc.
Cons: the tee pad signs are placed in a way that it would be possible to hit your hand on one after throwing. the course overall is short and fairly basic. the tee pads are signed but have not been improved, therefore you often throw from lumpy grass and other uneven surfaces. the course is not overly challenging for anybody beyond the beginner/recreational stage.
Other Thoughts: I appreciate the efforts of the city of Port Alberni to bring disc golf to their community. it is the only course on the highway 4 corridor, with no courses to the west until you get to Japan, and no courses to the east within a 2 hour drive. Port Alberni is a resource town that has been down on it's luck in recent years. it's nice to see the city still investing in it's public spaces for the good of the citizens. the course is only worth stopping at if you are on your way through town anyways, probably not worth the drive from Nanaimo unless you get really bored of the 4 star rated Bowen Park :) it is a perfect course to introduce new players to the sport.
