Pros: Nice, clean, open. Not a course your are going to lose a disc on. This has a few shots that will give anyone some challenges, but really it is just a quick easy course to play.
Cons: For being in the middle of the town, there isn't much around. Doesn't make for a bad course, just don't expect to find an easy place to get a bite to eat afterwards.
Church [of Disc Golf] Park
Pros: This and Pioneer/Stayton are sister courses, making a complete 18 if you don't count the 2.5 mile drive in between. These courses add to the pantheon of DG stops accumulating in small Willamette Valley towns that you might pass through on the way to the mountains, coast, wineries, etc.
Its a quiet, pretty little park with the DG crammed into a tight and busy 10 acres. 3 holes are 250'-300' and the rest under 200'. Small pines, mature hardwoods and open field in a counter-clockwise route, with minor elevation changes on a few holes.
#1 is like the nave of a church: a low-ceilinged lane right down the middle.
#2 has a central dogma of pines, and some double-trunked red oaks scowling like nuns near the basket.
#3 traverses mature hardwoods and a hedge, and begins to lose a bit of elevation.
#s4-5 cross the field, with giant cedars standing like Easter Island statues on the north.
#6 is a rising walk on the straight and narrow back into the pines.
#7 has an ultra-low ceiling and elevation gain among scattered pines, like genuflecting on the pilgrim's road.
#8 opens for the last 1/3 after a central pine, but the tree cover still hovers about like a ghost.
#9 is so short its like the preacher just noticed its 12:05 on a football Sunday.
New Discatcher baskets, and 8' cement teepads. Grassy in field and hardwoods, but sparse under pines.
Bathrooms and water in the SE corner of the park.
Cons: Houses north and west, church facilities south and east. No drinking, drugging or cussing.
No course sign, tee signs, benches or trashcans.
Other Thoughts: A playground and open fields. Stores/eats 1/4 mile.
A great addition to the DGCommunity

Pros: Short course, concrete tee pads, manicure. Trees come into factor and open shots on Hole 4 and 5 are still pretty difficult.
Cons: Hole 9 is too short to be considered a good hole, and should be reconstructed.
