One of my new favorite courses
Pros: Where to start? So many pros. This is a private course built by a man who clearly loves this sport. I was honored to be able to play his course and share in his labor of love. Some highlights:
1. Tee pads were well done.
2. Shooting from a barn... genius
3. Well guarded baskets
4. Tee signs that are very clear
5. Nice baskets
6. Punishing holes that require immense amounts of touch
7. The ravine
8. Clever hole names
9. The furious five
10. The stumped hole
11.The Papa's hospitality
12. Its so much different than the courses I am used to.
13. Clear directions to most tees
14. How much work to get concrete in some of those places... wow!
Cons: Very little to pick out as cons:
1. Navigating from 16 to 17 was not clear.
2. No Llamas
3. Course is three states away from me
See and only one of those is a real complaint
Other Thoughts: This is probably one of the best courses I have played. It focused on a variety of shots. It punishes those who do not have accuracy. This is not a big arm or a grip and rip course, but is super tight and technical. This course could, and should be played without giant driver like a boss, force or katana. You just have not use for a 400' bomber here. I tend to like the technical aspect of seeing my disc dodging some tight gaps, being frustrated when I don't hit a tight line, or holding my breath as my disc skims past (and often in to) some of the greenest fairways I have seen. Hole 3 had me debating on a good line to use. I played with my mother who has only tried DG once before. She had a blast too. If you are debating on whether or not to come down to Dalaiwood, stop debating and just go dangit. You will be very happy you did. Please be respectful of the course, clean up trash and follow the rules Scott has set out. They are not too much to ask to play in what I would consider to be one of the best courses in the US. Overall i left the course wanting to play it again and again. Now I am hitting myself for not playing a round 2, but it just makes me want to make the trip out to Western WA to hit it up again.

Pros: I felt as though I was playing on a course made for a pro, which is exactly the case. Majority of holes have precise shot selections, which is tough but great way to judge your talent level.
Cons: Must be creative sometimes with the shot selections if it looks as though "there's no way I can get this shot through there". Maybe try going overhand or doing a roller to put yourself in good position for the next shot, instead of attempting the shot of your life.
Other Thoughts: Definitely the best course I have played. I'd love to hone my skills in more at other courses and then come back to try my skills here. Very nice owner with an awesome pro shop in his garage.
