Variety of Holes
Pros: Some holes with denser tree, some wide open, some with only a couple of trees makes for a variety of holes.
Some holes play on grass, others on forest floors, others in fields.
Some holes are longer and others shorter. Most of the shorter holes have more trees.
Excellently tended fairways and beautiful canyon location.
Cons: Because the course plays near a playground and family campground, watch out for kids.
A couple holes play close to a barbed wire fence -- watch out. Although not frequent, some holes have places that are easy to lose discs.
There are a few longer walks between some holes and a couple holes play over each other.
No real elevation changes, despite being in a valley.
Other Thoughts: When I played, most of the tees were partway through receiving updated tee pads. If those become concrete tees, I would change this review to a 4.0.
<Insert Jolley Pun Here>
Pros: Well designed 18 hole course, enjoyable for beginners and pros alike.
Good variety of hole distances, leaning a little on the shorter side.
4 or 5 wide open holes that let you bomb it over some grass.
4 or 5 holes that favor a RHFH throw.
3 or 4 wooded tunnel shots.
2 or 3 holes with a creek in play.
It might not compare to some of the premier courses around the country, but for Utah Valley this has become a go-to course.
Cons: 6/28/16- Update: concrete tee pads have been installed for almost every hole now making it much easier/safer to drive. A few more alternate tees would be nice.
Requires a little backtracking to get from Hole 3 to Hole 4, then again from 6 to 7. Easy to navigate otherwise.
4 and 7 don't get mowed as much so the weeds can be a nuisance if it's been awhile.
Other Thoughts: About 20 minute drive once you get off the freeway, just past the ball golf course.

Part park, part woods
Pros: 1) Nice diversity of holes
2) Some highly technical holes, some very forgiving, easy holes.
3) Nice baskets
Cons: 1) Some holes were not in an intuitive order - we played at least one hole out of order.
2) Signage is limited.
3) Some holes would be extremely difficult to play alone...blind tee shots.
Other Thoughts: I would hesitate to play this course alone. There are too many blind tee shots and too much brush and undergrowth on at least 4-5 holes, and the risk of losing discs, even for experienced players, is real.
The course is partially in a nicely manicured public park, and partially carved out of river bottom trees and brush. It's kind of schizophrenic that way. It lacks a cohesive flavor. Some people like that, some people don't.

Pros: Very fun medium to short course. Beautiful setting, light traffic. Some very technical shots. Not physically taxing.
Definitely worth a trip!
Cons: Needs signage and tee pads!
Took a few minutes to figure out the course layout. Not complex, but without tee pads some hole directions are a bit confusing since the baskets are hidden (5/6), (13/14). But not too tough to figure out.
Some holes are close to playground and foot traffic, nothing too disruptive.. just need to pay attention.
Other Thoughts: Take Exit is 260 not 263 as noted on directions! Get off exit, go east about 2-3 miles until you get to 1300 East (Canyon rd) , take a right go for a few miles past golf course, (stay right) you'll run into the park. Course starts at upper parking lot.
Print course map before you come!
Other than the signage and tee pads, this is a fun course that meanders around the park. If you're going to play Art Dye in American Fork, this is worth the extra 20 min drive for a fun, non crowded course.

Lots in 1 Course
Pros: Lots of variety. Long holes, short holes. Open shots, tunnel shots . . . it had it all. Lots of different vegetation where one minute, you'd be on mowed grass and then another hole would be in the forest. That was fun. Lots of birdie opportunites but it takes skill to earn those chances.
Cons: Some minor issues like the lack of tee pads or clearly marked tee areas. They did have black stakes in the ground but it still would be unclear where the teepad boundaries are. Some course flow issues might be present with the Front 9. Also, for all the creativity that was used with trees and obstacles, the course had little in the way of elevation changes. Also, Watch out for oblivious groups taking family pictures!
Other Thoughts: What a great setting. With multiple pavilions, picnic benches, bathrooms and a nice playground, I could see this as a fantastic venue for a family get-together. I also wonder if they could make it a 27 hole course. Now that would be awesome!
