Pros: This is about as good of course as you will find and not have to pay to get in the park. Nice variety of longer and shorter holes as well as holes in and out of the woods.
Cons: Gets pretty crowded when McIver (which is just across the river) is not available.
Other Thoughts: About the only times I have played this course are when there is something going on at McIver, but it is a pretty good subsitute!

Pros: -Tee pads are some of the best I have ever seen
-Good course flow
-Minimal chance to lose discs
-You can use so many different discs for one shot
-Holes are well designed
-RHFH and RHBH equal amount of throws
-Minimal underbrush
-beautiful scenery
Cons: -No signage but once you play through once you cant get lost
-Can get crowded on weekends
-Couple places you have to watch other groups discs to make sure you dont get hit
Other Thoughts: I played this course for the first time today even though I have lived in gresham for 3 years. I play Milo religiously and after playing this course, it gives Milo a run for its money. The course is not too long and not too short. A lot of different looks and amazing tee pads. Just a GREAT course to play on from beginners to pros.

A Must Play

Pros: -Excellent tee pads
-Multiple pin locations
-Mach 2 baskets catch great
-Beautiful setting
-No cost to play!

Cons: -Signage is minimal
-Can get very crowded
-More garbages and more benches would be nice!
Other Thoughts: With this being so close to McIver you can make a whole day of discing out of it. I really like this course actually. First time I played it I was exhausted from playing McIver beforehand. Course can get crowded on weekends with it being a "free to play" course.

 Great course that comes up short

Pros: Lots of variety. Great practice for all types of shots. Good ranges. Tees marked. Not overly crowded. Good wind but not too windy. Cement tee pads.
Cons: No tee maps or pin location indicators/markers. Playing the course the first time, had to scout most holes. Front nine were a little clearer than the back 9. 18-19 broken/missing? Pins for 4, 15 & 17 are all within a few feet of each other. Course map?
Other Thoughts: The back nine seem like more of an afterthought to the front nine. I didn't play Milo didn't know about it when I played this course and wouldn't have had time to play it on this trip anyway. This is another course that could be really great with a little help from tee maps, overall map, better direction markings, etc. This seems to happen to too many decent courses.

Pros: Plenty of parking, Restrooms, Water, Pavillion with benches, Warm-up basket, Large concrete tee pads, good mix of RHBH and LHBH shots, Kiosk, Multiple pin placements, Dog friendly, Friendly locals and best of all it's FREE!
Cons: No tee signs, Crowded at times, Navigation can be difficult for first time.
Other Thoughts: Cool locals are very helpful with tips and navigation through the course. Tee pads have the number painted on them to assist with navigation. This course has all Mach III baskets and is one of the first DG course installed in the state of Oregon. This is a fun and challenging course and suggest that if you are in the area its a must play.

Pros: Parking, Bathrooms, Picnic Areas
Terrain and the large abundant trees create unique challenges on most holes. A few open holes for the longer arms. Great baskets and cement Pads on most tees. Multiple pin placements on most holes.
Cons: Needs tee box markers, no distance or placement info.
Other Thoughts: Worth the trip anytime you're in the Portland Area!

Pros: Nice layout with holes that keep your attention. A few short holes, a few long, and lots of in between. Really liked playing this course!

Went back and the old 19 were back! Still really liking this course!!
Cons: A few fairways are close and play against each other. So watch out for fellow players.

Just wish there was some tee signs with hole info on them.

Pros: This is a great and challenging coarse!
The holes are a great distance from the tee with obsticals.
Its a great walk.
Has great Variety through out the park.
Theres 9 open holes so you have some great straight throws the rest make you use some technique.
Cons: A couple holes are a little hard to find.
Easy to lose discs if your throw is off

 Big Timber

Pros: Reminds me somewhat of Pier Park with the heavy evergreen timber and subtle undergrowth to define the fairways, but is different due to the lack of elevation. Timber Park is a fun course that let's you air out some long shots, but has enough trees to allow you to shape most of them. There are a couple of neat holes that are tight, thrown in as well. You will find a nice variety of left and right turning holes and some things in-between. I could imagine someone bringing their roller game, too. You will find the fairways and landing zones fairly ample, too. After playing some really hair-pulling courses before this (Horning's Meadow and Stub Stewart), I found this to be a relaxing, but still challenging change of pace.

Timber seems to have lived in the shadow of Milo next door, but if I lived in the area, I would surely play here frequently. As a WA guy (and not what I'd call a course bagger), I had never made the time to come here, as I would head directly to Milo. I'm glad I came here and judged Timber on its own merits.

The locals were friendly and helped guide us to some of the upcoming holes (a little tricky to find some with the outdated map 7/'11)
Cons: I wish there were more danger zones to create some drama on the course. Other than a couple of mandos (and a fairly menacing rough on #17), it seems that there are not elements to punish poor shots unless you hit a tree early.

The map is a little outdated and we had to ask people where to go next on a couple occasions. Hole #19 tee used to be near the end of #18, but now you must make a small walk back toward #1 pin to find the new tee.

There are no signs. The consolation is that they have neon numbers on the tee pads themselves and numbers on the baskets - I guess those two aspects would be considered a pro.
Other Thoughts: This is a nice place to get in an enjoyable round. If you have never been to Milo or Timber, I would suggest you come here first. You will likely enjoy what the course offers, then go to Milo. It is like having your main course before dessert.

I like the guy in the photo with the plaid shirt around his waist. I thought, for some time, that he was wearing a Kilt! Imagine that Huk Lab.......Or not!

Pros: This may not matter to some, but if you like bringing your dog along for the walk, then Timber Park is a course you're going to love. As long as you keep a decent rein on him and clean up after him no one will make a big deal about your dog being off-leash.

I really enjoy coming here during the fall/winter because it usually stays pretty dry compared to a lot of other course around the area.

Some delicate layouts thru the trees as well as some wide open holes. Good mix.
Cons: If you aren't a dog lover, then you probably won't enjoy all the freedom dogs are aloud on this course.

Somewhat confusing if you haven't played it or aren't with someone who has.

Sh*t creek. Especially during the winter, if you are unlucky enough to lose one in the creek it is very unlikely you'll get it back. It's not as bad during the summer but it gets pretty deep and swift the rest of the year.
Other Thoughts: I rated this course a 4 because it has a good mix of holes, is usually kept up pretty well, and because it is so dog friendly.

This place is just a good time. More often than not the people are friendly and laid back.

There are enough different shots needed during the round that it should be enjoyable for all skill levels.
