An enormous hillside
Pros: The main course has a couple hundred feet of topography on an enormous and steep hillside at a school for disabled kids in Vancouver. The holes are set up in a way that you will have to play the hillside slope in many different ways and angles. Lots of across hill both ways, up and down hill shots, etc.. The grass is nicely manicured in some of the fairways, so you can try a roller if you don't let it turn downhill and keep going and going!
The hill side faces north to English Bay and wonderful views of the coast ranges, downtown, as well as ships coming in and out of the channel. Bring a picnic and enjoy a wonderful view during a break in your round!
Cons: The hillside dominates the course, and there is not a lot of other varieties of holes. Most holes have no challenging obstacles, few trees, etc.. This is not easy to rectify. Some of the OB areas are incredibly thick and thorny...we looked for a disc for 30 minutes that only landed 1 meter into the rough from the edge of the manicured fairway. Watch out!
Other Thoughts: There is a whole other tone pole course going around the east and south side of the school (starting from the parking lot, just like the normal course), though it is not well-marked and you might need a guide the first time. This offered a lot more variety when combined with the main course, and if it were officially adopted into the course this would easily become an even more famous venue for disc golf in a great disc town.
