Pros: • #8 and #9 are interesting holes that take good advantage of a row of trees.
• There are many trees on the course. Even though the holes lengths are short, you'll have to be accurate on your tee shots.
• Nice grassy park setting.
Cons: • Too many short holes (<200').
• Scary big and fast flowing canal beside a few holes.
• Start and finish are quite far apart.
Other Thoughts: This course won't challenge an experienced player except for holes 8 and 9. I was disappointed when I played it because I had just watched a TV news story about the Treasure Valley's new DG course. I was hoping that it would provide an alternative for the always over-crowded Ann Morrison Park. I don't think many players will spend much time here. However, it is a great place to take a beginner because of the many short holes. I did score a 9-hole personal best score of -7 here, but there should be an asterisk beside this one because of the short length.

Pros: This is a great beginner or short range improvement course.
-Baskets with numbers
-Short range practice
-Every hole a putter can be thrown
-Decent variety of shots needed
-Quickly play a round (easy 40 minutes with two people)
-Easy location to find, close to freeway
-Fall/Winter canal is shallow and discs can be retrieved
Cons: -Signs would be a nice touch
-Course Design (I think the space could have been used a bit better. Some distances between teepads could have been reduced and created a longer hole)
-Start and Finish are opposite sides of the course
-Would be nicer to finish by the parking lot
-No distance holes
-During spring/summer the canal is over waist deep and discs can be lost
Other Thoughts: All in all a great beginner or midrange/putter course, but not much beyond that
If I had a backyard this big...

Pros: Simply put, in my mind if I had a well maintained backyard with a few smaller young trees and I wanted to put in a disc golf course, I would put something like this in!
- Concrete tee pads that point directly to the basket that they are associated with.
- Baskets clearly marked with their hole number 1-9.
- Very good baskets, they didn't go cheap on them!
- Great beginner course, I've been looking for a short course nearby to take friends and family to that I can introduce them to disc golf.
Cons: - I personally don't care for courses that start and end on opposite corners of the play area. Hole 1 tee pad and hole 9 basket are as far from each other as they possibly could have made them.
- Holes 8 and 9 are on the other side of the canal, kind of separating themselves from the rest of the course.
- If it weren't for being on this site and finding this course there, I would have never thought to look at the front lawn of the CWI campus for a course.
Other Thoughts: Great use of the space they had in front of the campus building. Because there is a canal nearby, my Brother in law and I got eaten alive by mosquitoes, bring BUGSPRAY! ;)

Pros: Concrete tee pads, solid pins. Well marked. Excellent beginner course.
Cons: Holes and tee pads are very short. Advanced players will likely find the course boring. As a beginner course is excellent, except for the canal that runs along side several holes.
