Pros: This course is good for the following reasons:
-All tee areas are pads or on the concrete walkway. Nice solid throwing areas.
-Well maintained. Front nine are all in the grass area of the park and the back nine are off in the field portion of the park. Back nine may need a spotter but you can't really lose a disc on this course (except hole 6-8 but that's due to water on your left hand side.).
-Wide open. There are a few trees that you need to shoot around, but there is not so many that you can't send your disc flying.
-The course is set up so you can follow from basket to tee very easily without getting lost.
-Good distance variety. Some really long shots for the drivers and some shorter ones to practice that mid range disc.
-It's in a park, something for the whole family to do there.
Cons: A few things to be aware of:
-This course can get a bit windy, so keep your discs low and heavy on those days or you will watch them go places you didn't want.
-It is in a park. It can get pretty busy at nights and on the weekends making you wait at some holes for people to clear the area especially the walking path that goes throughout the park.
-The water on holes 6-8. If you send your disc to far to the left it will end up in a canal.
Other Thoughts: Nice park with restrooms, playground, baseball fields, soccer fields, and a recreation center. You can really make a good day out of coming to this park and playing.
Not too shabby park
Pros: This is a fun park to play so long as there aren't a lot of people around. The tees are very well marked, as are the cages and the signs are good. You won't see a lot of elevation change in this park, it's really flat, but the trees make most of the holes a challenge.
It also has some long 400+ ft throws that let you unload.
You aren't likely to lose many discs if you avoid the canal on 3 holes, (you have to really be off to land it in there).
Cons: This is a very busy park with pavilions, baseball diamonds, rec center and lots and lots of people on the path which is all over the front nine.
People can be inconsiderate and plop down right in the fairway to watch baseball games. If you give bonus points for nailing them then maybe this could be considered a pro.
Other Thoughts: Overall my impression of this course is that it is better than average, but not amazing. The holes don't seem to favor forehand or backhand shots, so it's a nice mix.

Pros: This is my home course so I play it 2-3 times a week. The course has got some long shots and the new basket placement incorporates the trees as hazards better than the old setup. The front nine is a grassy park setting and the back nine is more of a field. I prefer the back nine on a cloudy day because my game seems to do better in the field than on the front nine.
Cons: This course can get pretty crowded on a nice evening. The back nine is a scorcher on a hot, sunny day so bring some water. There is a small creek running along the road where holes 6-8 are and I've seen quite a few discs go in the drink so be careful.
Other Thoughts: Not a great course, but not a bad one either. As my home course I've learned to love it, but I know a lot of players just don't like it.

Pros: Good signage
First nine holes are manicured, last nine the "cropfield" is at least cut low so you won't lose discs
Nearly impossible to lose a disc on
Although trees are relatively small, and you're never "canopied", they are in play on nearly every hole. Dismiss them at your own peril.
Relatively easy to save par if you hit a tree, as there aren't THAT many of them, and you usually don't hit them early.
Good variety on hole distances-from the very aceable, slightly downhill Hole 10 (~185 ft) to the long, uphill (with trees to prevent much rightward drift) 372 foot Hole 5 and the downhill 421 foot Hole 14
Very strollerable, nice bathrooms, nice playground for the kiddos
Rarely busy-usually don't even have to wait for walkers to clear
Since there is a walking path along most of the course, you have a nice "cart path" to ride on
Full 18 holes, nice baskets, well-maintained
Cons: Nearly completely flat
Zero shade-Do not play in mid-afternoon in July and August (but great Winter course)
Beware the batting cages if Hole 17 is in the long position
At least one of the tee signs is actually mounted onto the tee-glad I'm not LHBH.
No water in play
Very safe (as long as you don't throw on a walker or something)
Other Thoughts: You know, there are tons of pros to the course and not that many cons, but yet, something is missing. It's like the fun-factor isn't there like it is at Creekside. You often have the place to yourself, everything is very nice, but there's no spark. Maybe it's the lack of hills, the lack of water, or the lack fo people. Can't explain it. But this course will only get better as the trees grow bigger. Kudos to the park folks for putting it in. It's a great addition to the park and an important addition to the disc golf scene in SLC.

Pros: Seems to be maintained fairly well, although some holes have been put places where little maintenance can be done.
Little hazards, other than distance, on many holes allows for low scores.
Never very crowded.
Course goes thru old corn/hey field, makes things a little interesting.
Cons: Since lack of hazards, baskets are placed very close to trees and shrubbery. This could be fixed by just adding more trees in some areas.
Lack of signs and directions.
Lack of course trash cans.
Although never crowded as far as player go, there have been times when a football or rugby game was goin on n had to throw around the game to play a hole or two.
Some of the holes are hard to find, didnt even play all 18 first few times at the course
