Pros: What a beautiful course! I was pleasantly surprised by the layout which offers a great variety of short, long, dogleg left and right throws. Even some blind shots and tunnels. It's great for beginners and pros.

The park and course are very well taken care of. You get a great variety between the manicured, open shots and the rustic, climbing over logs holes.

It's out of the way so it gets less traffic, but it's close enough to make it worth the afternoon trip.
Cons: There is the obvious lack of tee pads, but most of the tee locations are marked with black markers or are clearly worn.

The course has a couple of flow issues that make finding the next tee mildly difficult. As mentioned before most of the baskets themselves have directions to the next tee. The map provided here is also quite helpful.

For being in a canyon it's amazingly flat. I like elevation changes so this falls in the con section for me.
Other Thoughts: A couple holes have you throwing right next to or directly at a creek. It does add an element of danger for losing discs which makes the course that much funner to play.

13A is insane. I couldn't even see a line to throw through. Luckily there is an alternate pad 13B for people who can't bomb a big hyzer up and over.

With a playground, pavilion and benches it's a great place to take the family and throw some plastic!.

Pros: Ditto to waywu2001, many opportunities to try/perfect new styles or types of play. Each hole presents unique throwing opportunities and the course has been well thought out to stretch the player.

Even though there are no signs, someone has written the next tee location on all of the chain posts. Once you've played through the first time it's a cinch to get to the next tee.
Cons: The biggest con of this course is the lack of tee pads. There are little signs that designate the tee area but there are no clear boundaries for the tee pad.

The only other improvement I could think of would be to have signs that showed the distance and location of the basket.

Lastly there are many families and young couples that come to use this park for taking pictures. This usually doesn't interfere but is something to keep in mind.
Other Thoughts: All in all this is my favorite course in Utah Valley. It is nestled in one of the most beautiful canyons and is usually picturesque. I've had dear roaming the course while I play and you just don't get that anywhere else. The course is challenging to the more advanced player but also beginner friendly.

UPDATE: April, 2014, Tee signs have been planned and concrete has been poured for them. Word around the street is tee pads and signs coming this year.
