Pros: Fairly long holes with good basket placements. Tees are also in good conditions and the maps are useful for first timers. Mud is not too bad, but maybe after tonight it could be a different story.
Cons: Decent winds that are constantly changing through the open field. The grass is also very unkept, so you will spend a good amount of time doin the searching thing
Other Thoughts: I go here often because of the fact that it is conveniently close to where I live.

Pros: - Nice teepads and signs
- Two interesting holes
- Maintained and mowed by someone, with two recent basket placement changes (thanks!)
- Hard to lose a disc
Cons: - So wet during the wet seasons! Bring your rain boots!
- Very open and flat
- "Holes" 10-18 are just 1-9 with alternate teepads only 20-50 feet away from the original. Few alternate teepads makes for a more interesting shot - mostly just longer.
Other Thoughts: After wondering if this course would ever dry out, it finally happened in July and became more tolerable to play. In addition, some of the baskets placed in really boggy areas were just moved, and perhaps it won't be a problem in the wet times like it was this last spring. You'll still have hard-to-miss boggy and muddy spots, but at least it won't be unavoidable (like right around the basket, as it was).

Of the nine holes, there are only two where the basket is protected by some trees, three with a tree or two but not really blocking or protecting the fairway to basket, and the final four are as open as can be. I still don't understand the alternate tees (or holes 10-18) -- they're too close to the original that they add little value to the course.

I decided to update my review for the care that's going into the course. Moving the baskets was wise. That's impressed me and helped the course, and I have hope for things getting better over time.

Pros: - Nice tee pads, pavers hemmed in with wood
- Decent lengths
Cons: - wet most of the time
- wide open, very little obstruction
- very busy
Other Thoughts: The most difficult part of this course is waiting on the group in front of you. If you swing by on the way home from work on any remotely nice weekday, there's generally 2-5 groups playing the course.

This course is a mud pit when it's been raining, and remains soggy for quite a while.

The course is wide open, very little to no obstructions what-so-ever. This does make it a great place to work on throws you'd normally not feel comfortable with in a narrower, groomed course as your worst throws are still going to have line of sight to nearly every basket on the course.

Pros: -NEW COURSE LAYOUT!
-Boxed in concrete stones, making exellent tee boxes.
-More shot choices.
-Not easier, just different. Scores for most part are staying the same.
Cons: -Pretty Short.Making lots of holes too easy.
-Couple of Boxes conflict with tee shots.
-Gonna be interesting during the wet winter months.
-Can be confusing if new to course.
-LOTS OF NEWBIES, not so much a con, just a warning!!
Other Thoughts: -FINALLY! We got something done at Juel. For the better, we put in Teeboxes, and moved several of the pins around creating a different layout. THANKS FOR ALL THE EFFORT FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT HELPED! We haved talked with the city and benches and trash cans are the next installment! New signs will be up soon, as will new photos and a overview of the course.

Pros: -Good for families, beginners, practice.
-Great for throwing mid to long range drives.
-Some decent ace runs.
-Decent baskets.
-Nice park and nice people, good neighborhood of Seattle area.
-Signs are good and you can see baskets so its not hard to navigate.
-Not alot of walking between holes and loops right around to bring you back to parking lot.
-It is relatively scenic, like most of the area, with its large trees and creek.
-Has a porta potty if you need to use it.
-Not busy at all.
-2 tees for most holes.
Cons: -As said before it is very open and unimaginative.
-Floods in spring but is otherwise playable mostly year round due to climate of Pacific Northwest.
-Some tee boxes were bumpy. They weren't too bad when I went, it probably changes every time they get wet which is often.
-Multiple pin locations, especially more difficult ones, would be very beneficial.
-Concrete tees would be even better! Especially if there is any moisture in the ground!
Other Thoughts: Play it if you are a beginner, family, want practice, are getting as many courses as possible or happen to be in the area. Otherwise leave it alone. Lakewood is a good course a half hour away in south Seattle.

Pros: The course is in a well maintained park that doesn't get use from many other activities so the disc golfers have the park for thier own. The flow of the course leads you right back to the parking lot. The baskets are in nice condition, There are a couple of holes with some good length to them which makes it a good course for practicing drives. Little chance of losing a disc. Navigation is easy and tee signs are in the ground for both tee pads per hole. New concrete tee pads.
Cons: The course is so wide open and the holes are generally dull and unimaginative, after a couple of plays this course gets boring. Better pin placement could make the course harder. The course gets flooded with water during the rainy season which is often. You will be waiting on numerous groups of people when the weather is nice.
Other Thoughts: If you live in the area it's not a horrible course for practicing drives in open fields but that's about it. If you like technical courses this is not for you, it's basically a "family friendly course" with just another fifty percent more length added.

Pros: Wide open spaces, good beginner course
Cons: Not as technical as some other courses. Course gets very muddy during colder/wet months.
Other Thoughts: Cool place to practice long drives. Nice mellow, open course.
Gets an extra rating point for being the ONLY course on the Eastside.

Pros: flat and open fare ways
serious potential on sunny days!
Cons: Super muddy yesterday!
I suppose if you had rubber boots you could make it through, still gonna have a real dirty disc to deal with.

Only 9 holes

Pros: *clean course
*nice detailed hole signs/maps
*easily navigational (flows well)
*decent hole lengths
*great baskets
*many trash cans, tables, and one porta potty
* multiple tees (not labeled)
Cons: in my honest opinion the course was pretty bland. i didn't get excited over many of the holes. #1,#3,#8, and #9 were simi to full guarded baskets otherwise it was open field. it was swampy and wet, i can see it being a pain during winter months of play. a few of the basket heights were either high or low. the basket #s on top of the baskets were facing the wrong way from the view of the tees. and many off leash dogs. the tee boxes are gravel and chaotic w/ the exception of holes #1 & #2 being 1ft square cobble stones.
Other Thoughts: apparently many local residents are unaware of the course and only know it as a regular park. their were trails for hiking, horse trails, a base ball field, so it offers other activities for non players/ family members etc. this park could use some TLC and it would be a real nice course.
