Pros: 1. Nice views of the lake and surrounding area
2. Good variety of shots
3. Utilized desert terrain well. No large trees to work with but there are cacti, natural brush, and a variety of elevation to work with. All holes work around and within the area so no two holes are the same.
4. Holes well marked with easy to find signs.
5. Water available. Important with any desert course.
Cons: 1. While the holes are well marked finding the first hole was a challenge. We might have just been starting from the wrong area though.
2. No real long shots. Great for my noodle arm but might lack a challenge for those with a solid drive.
3. Fee to enter campground but then again I'm cheap.
4. Bees. Ran afoul of a beehive at one of the holes.
5. Lots of rocks. Typical of desert courses but can still tear up a favorite disc.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed this course unfortunately I didn't have time to really explore it. It looks as though they've expanded it to 18 holes but the new signs appear temporary and I wasn't able to play them. If already camping in the area I strongly recommend this course.

 A great place to play

Pros: Well marked. Nice layout. Reasonable difficulty for anyone.
Holes are not overly long but a bit of wind adds to the challenge.
Cons: Only 9 holes...
Other Thoughts: Was just visiting relatives in Prescott & brought 3 discs with me just to play this course. Was a perfect break!

Pros: Great use of one hillside; up to start, then across and down and across again, to finish broadside on the hill back to the start. Great placement of t's and goals.
Cons: A short 9 hole course, but easily played twice with a good chance that the wind has changed on second round to play a new game.
Other Thoughts: A lot of open shots, yet wind direction played a big impact on shots.

A few articulate shots, requiring precision compensating for the winds and elevation changes.

Park services needs to add disc golf to directives on maps and guides.
