Pros: -Some tight fairways.
-nice typical oregon park
-lots of basket locations that will move often
-manicured cut grass through most of park.
Cons: -a little Repetitive.
-pay to play (if it wasn't, wouldn't exist)
Other Thoughts: You can buy an annual membership. I think the course is still young and needs time. A lot of the basket locations were straight ahead but there is possibility for more variation. I would like to see other setups before I completely make up my mind. Better than west Moreland.

Disc golf is free
Pros: -18 hole course in Eugene
-Well maintained and groomed
-Next tee signage after every pin (much needed!)
-Clear cut fairways and rough
-4 pins on nearly every hole
-Long teepads that extend past a marked foul line to allow for a safe follow through
Cons: -Pay to play course
-No signature hole, every hole feels the same from the teepad. Short, straight and low.
-The flow from hole to hole feels confused at times
-No marker as to which of the 4 pins your playing
-All but 1 or 2 pins is straight in front of the teepad and not long. If you can throw a Roc 300' that may be the only disc you need here
-Lack of variety. RHBH friendly nearly the whole time
-Other than tunnel shots, lack of trees. No manipulation of trees necessary. If you get a fair drive off the tee par on every hole is easily attainable
-A lot of long term hype for a lot of let down
Other Thoughts: Only in Eugene would a less than adequate course be a pay to play. I throw 3-4 times a week and will continue to drive to Dexter or Cottage Grove at North Regional every time. It would be one thing to pay to play disc golf at a course that warrants it (Hornings Hideout for example) but Alton Baker isn't worth 1$ a day let alone 3$. I respect all of the time and money that has been put into the course but the stigma that the course is worth money to play is wrong. If the course was free I would still make the drive south 9 out of 10 times, the gas is worth it! May be worth playing once for a mid range, putter practice day, but don't expect to be impressed because you're paying to play a free sport. Short, straight and low and you'll shoot par or better. Definitely had much higher expectations.
