God, Horses, and Discs
Pros: Here's another isolated and woodsy summer-camp course that gives you an option for an extended break on the way to Oregon Gardens, Silver Falls, etc.
Utilizing a lot of the existing camp fields and byways, the course plays well already by not having been cut new from the forest as a lot of Taloali was. There's plenty of mature trees on the field edges, and the undergrowth is brushy enough to disc-hunt a bit. It also has an urban farm feel, playing first near the bunkhouses and office, then near the paintball course, zipline, jungle gym and lake. Drift Creek provides good risk on a few holes when the water gets up Nov.-May.
#s1-3 throw west/slightly downhill through fields paralleling the creek, with scattered alders, maples and pine obscuring some lanes and the creek fairly close to pin #3.
Climb the hill to
#s4-7, which rise and descend in a field recently reclaimed from blackberries[several large piles to throw over on each hole] with a pine or two thrown in.
#8 throws steeply, narrowly downhill through trees and underbrush to a pin near the camo bible bus.
#9 continues downcreek in a large field to an elevated pin not far from the zipline anchor.
Cross the footbridge to
#10, which drives from a gazebo across a large field to a pin by the fort/gymnasium, next to the creek.
Walk uphill to
#11, which is a long dropping left hand turn with a low ceiling near the end.
#12 resembles greatly the #8 drop, and finishes in a grassy fenced corral.
#13 drives across an open field with hanging limbs giving lefties the business.
#14 rises in the open to a basket perched riskily at the lip of the lake retention dam.
#s15-16 both drive across the lake, #15 with more water and #16 with a more uphill finish.
#17 drives a lane with the hill of the entrance road crossing halfway down, and the creek on the right.
#18 throws directly across the creek through large pines to a basket at the back of a large field.
Cons: Holes in the ground where the teepads should be[soon to be rectified].
The only signs were laminates from a tourney. No next tee signs except for walk-ups.
Once these are done the course will gain a full point on this review.
Summer is an iffy time to play-the camp is very busy then.
Other Thoughts: Stores a couple miles back in Silverton. Remember, its a Christian equestrian camp[hale and hearty horsepeople about!], so no alcohol/drug indulgences.

Pros: This was a really amazing course. Lots of great and clever holes. The distance per hole was pretty long so be prepared to throw hard. Had a great time playing it for the first time. The camp environment there is really neat too. It gives a nice secluded feel.

Pros: BEST BASKETS (18 Bentley Baskets), Very Unique Holes, lots of variety, tons of elevation change and water hazards, beautiful scenery.
Cons: 2 long walk outs but they are totally worth it.
Black berry bushes, no permanent signage and need tee pads.
Other Thoughts: Awesome adventure, great for the whole family, and Love will be seen by those that come on the grounds.
