Pros: -Cement tee pads, good baskets, logical flow and decent signage.
-Beautiful place for disc golf, course was clean (no trash), quiet and peaceful.
Cons: -Star Thistle, it's a nasty weed and was prevalent when I played here.
-Intense sun, little shade, not so much a con just remember a hat!
Other Thoughts: One of the nicer 9-hole courses I've had the luxury of playing. The course is mostly an open field so whoever designed it made the right call going for distance. There was no wind when I played, so I can't truly comment on that aspect. Overall I was glad I took the detour off the 299 and I look forward to playing here again.

Pros: The course is long and challenging.
The baskets are top of the line Innova Disccatcher pro's with 28 chains.
For not having many trees, the fairways are well defined and the long rough, which plays as OB, looks more difficult than it actually plays. It's visually intimidating, but plays fair.
Big downhill shots are a lot of fun. Uninterrupted flights are really nice when wanting to learn your plastic.
The changing conditions are challenging, ie; gravity up and down, fog in the mornings because of the close proximity of Lewiston Lake
Parking is easy. Park at the Church, except on Saturdays.
Store called "plug 'n Jug" within walking distance has snacks and drinks.
Lewiston is a really quiet town, typically there's nobody playing.
Slightly biased to a RHBH thrower, but a good mix of shots can be thrown, as there are few trees that define the hole.
Each hole has it's own character, and keeps the player guessing.
Variables like wind, uphill/downhill, elevation and fog are to be considered.
Cons: Occasional walkers to watch out for.
Natural tee pads get muddy (cement tees to be installed in spring)
No alternate basket locations (yet)
The open look of the course at first seems boring, but the OB changes that quickly. Penalties pile up quickly.
Slightly ambiguous whether a disc is touching the fairway and is safe, or is completely OB
Other Thoughts: The course is extremely long. It's a great place to throw a lot of discs and learn how they fly. The openness of the first six holes are totally unique and fun. Holes 7, 8 and 9 have trees and variety that is a nice contrast to the rest of the course. This course has helped me learn how to manage wind and the changing stability of my discs when throwing up and down hill. I'm experimenting with rollers as well. The three par fours are great for my course management and calculating risk/reward.
