Pros: Skyline is another example of how much fun a course can be despite the lack of teepads or baskets! This course is very scenic with its majestically tall trees, undulating terrain, and large boulders that are in play as target guardians or obstacles to scare you on the teebox. The target trees are clearly marked and easily seen from the teebox.

Skyline rocks a solid layout. Most fall between 325-375, with a handful of shorties to keep your finesse game honest. I don't think there's anything longer than 375ish. Decent variety of shots to make from the tee - more left-to-right lines to hit than most courses around. There are a couple blind shots here which use the elevation to provide a challenging angle to the target.

There is a good amount of shade on the course. As the course sees more traffic, walking lines have been carved out of the normally rough brush. The parking lot is easy to find - it's right off of Skyline Dr by the boulders.
Cons: This course can be rough depending on time of year and precipitation received. Currently, the brush is tame and the course isn't too gnarly.
Navigation can be difficult as there aren't any markers or indicaters here. First-timers might have to take a few minutes to find the next hole.
You'll find that the ceiling isn't as low or challenging as School House or Thumb Butte.
No solid teepads, no baskets, no amenities to speak of. Please pack out what you brought in, KEEP THE AREA CLEAN!!
Other Thoughts: This completes the Tri-fecta of awesome, natural courses in Prescott! (School House, Thumb Butte, Skyline) Father-son combo Nade & Zach are local legends as they have helped design multiple courses in the area and are very nice guys - always down to play alongside fellow golfers.

If you're in the area for DG, don't sleep on Skyline!

Pros: Holes are easily visible from tee off. Tee boxes are easy to determine (3 logs in a square with the open side facing away from the hole). Tall trees create a challenging course to angle around but can be played by anyone including amateurs like myself. Hitting trees is a lot easier than getting your disc in the basket, and with some holes within a long driving range, a hole-in-one could be possible, which always makes for a good day. Great scenery as you are in the natural forest setting of Arizona. This course is very close to many other courses, however, many are private camp courses. For a natural course, you can tell that a lot of work has been put into it, which has resulted in it being a good all around course.
Cons: WEAR LONG PANTS!!! I understand that summers in Arizona can be scorching but wearing long pants will be worth it. Otherwise you'll be leaving with cut up legs, as the ground is covered with sharp thorny plants. Navigating from the basket (tree) of one hole to the tee box of the next is a little difficult as some are a ways apart and only guided by the occasional path or poorly spray painted arrows on the trees. With a little brush make sure to use bright colored discs on drives and spot the landing.
Other Thoughts: Really enjoyed this course as it put a more natural side on the disc golf game I'm used to (fairways/baskets/etc.), as well as ease of identifying each hole from the tee box.
