Pros: This course is quite different that what you expect when you show up to the dirt patch that is the parking lot. Seeing four or five baskets in the open and mixed in with a few trees I'm not expecting much but don't let appearances fool you. Once you start playing and getting into the back end of the front nine you leave the windy fields, noisy traffic of I-84, annoying grass/weeds and sadly the nice views of the surrounding hills. The way heads down off the plateau and into the woods! You go from the longer open holes to a shorter and tighter wooded course. Hole eight is a nice stand out hole to me throwing downhill in a low ceiling canopy to a guarded basket maybe 280 feet or so, keeping the disc straight here is mandatory for desired results. You out of the trees and back up the to sparsely trees and throw some longer holes again until you reach back around to the beginning of the course.
Cons: There are arrows or ribbons on the majority of the course but there are a few areas that I got lost on or was confused on where to throw. Like the previous reviewers mentioned finding the back nine was especially difficult for me as I ended up walking all over the place. Some people may find the rough a little much for them but for me I like it and believe it to be necessary for punishing those off line throws, with the one exception of not knowing where the basket was and throwing in the wrong direction I didn't have too hard of a time.
Other Thoughts: This is a surprising course that is a good little option off of I-84 that I would play again if I was in the area. Designers of the course did a fair job with land they were given and my gripes are minimal and nit picky. Better course than it looks like from the start for sure. When you are on the second of the wooded holes (can't remember which hole, six maybe?) there is a little trail to the right which takes you out to the waters edge where you can take in the Columbia River and the surrounding rocks and ledges, very nice little spot for relaxing.
