Pros: +Concrete tees
+Nice baskets
+Nicely maintained park. It has some larger mature trees and grass that looks like it is cut often.
+Approachable distances for new and young players who will probably be the main demographic for this smaller town.
+Great signage
+Many ace runs
+Course loops back to where it starts.
+Big map at start of course.
+Alternate tees for when the main tee requires a throw over water.
+River comes into play a few times. You shouldn't lose a disc in there but it does add a bit of excitement to the course.
Cons: -The flow isn't the best for first time players. You cross the river a few times and the highway once. It isn't bad once you figure it out.
-The land is very flat. No elevation changes.
-Pretty short course with not much variation in hole length. It is about 150-300.
-Most holes have a tree or two in the way but never really force and line or were very challenging.
-I would have made a slightly longer 9 hole course here if I were creating this course. 15 is a weird number and is kind of crammed in there.
-You could lose a disc in the river if you got really unlucky.
Other Thoughts: -The course is really limited by the land that it's on. It is probably the best available in town. They did a good job with what they had to work with.
-This course is kind of out of the way but if you happen to be driving by on 212 you might as well stop. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way for this one unless you are a course bagger but it will serve the small town of Dawson well.

Fun variety, but short with too small of tee pads

Pros: - Interesting diversity of holes/shots.
- Five holes with a risk of OB wet.
- Good baskets, and good tee signs reportedly coming soon.
Cons: - Concrete tee pads are about two feet too short on every hole (have to start X-step behind concrete pad).
- Hole 2 and Hole 5 need care on the tee to watch for runners and cyclists on path.
- Hole 12 basket installed in the wrong location...making the hole WAY too short/easy (barely a hole at all).
Other Thoughts: Plays quick, with several good chances for deuce. It's short...only a couple of holes to really air it out. But it should be a good course for the community/region to enjoy, and the 8-9 other players (mostly Rec/Int, the primary audience for the design) we bumped into today all seemed to enjoy the course.
