Pros: +A few interesting basket placements- 5 and 6 come to mind especially. On others, 1,8,9, they did take advantage of the one tree that they had to work with. They just didn't have much to start with.
+Nice baskets
+Nice concrete tees
+Views of the mountains
+Ace runs
+Good for quick round, beginners, elderly, kids, etc.
+Probably won't lose a disc here
+Layout is fairly intuitive. If you have the map from here, you won't get lost at all. Stays away from other things to do at the park.
+Good for practicing short drives, putts,approaches.
Cons: -P-dogs every where. The creatures themselves aren't so bad and can be entertaining but their holes can be downright dangerous if you don't watch your step.
-This course is quite short with nothing over 300'. It felt pretty repetitve as well.
-Fairly open, only a few trees which were usually right by the basket. No line shaping required.
-Pretty dry, dusty, and barren. Not a lot of grass here.
Other Thoughts: -This course does have marked tees, baskets, and even a few trees. It is better than most of the school courses around the area.
-I wouldn't recommend going out of your way for this course. It has a bit of fun factor and won't waste a lot of your time if you don't like it. If you are close by, you might as well go for it.

-Chill locals, welcoming
Cons: -You will be done in about 35 minutes

a.k.a The Prairie Dog Course

Pros: 9 hole course with excellent concrete tees and good baskets. A decent place to take somebody for their very first time as the holes aren't too long and are mostly wide open.

It is a good course for beginners or a quick round, easy to find discs with little chance to lose them.

Maybe the best thing about this course was that there were prairie dogs everywhere. I realize these things are probably considered pests, but for somebody who had never seen one in person, it was kind of neat to see these things running around everywhere!
Cons: Not all that challenging, very flat, not many obstacles. Tee signs were just wood posts that looked worn and old, some were missing, making it a little confusing as to which tee was what. (#6 tee was over by the fence to the right of #5 basket. #9 tee was down to walking path way to the left almost hidden just past some landscaping.)

Not aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. Mostly dirt brown land with dead trees used to make artificial obstacles rather than green grass and live trees. (in contrast the parking lot is shared with a beautiful green soccer field and the most manicured little league baseball stadium I have ever seen.)
Other Thoughts: Even for beginners, this course seems uninteresting, especially after you play a time or two you will want to start playing elsewhere. I only played here because it was close to the Steady Ed designed Ken Caryl course which is more of what a beginner course should be.

The disc golfer versus prairie dog

Pros: Good tees
Interesting obstacles on 3-4 holes
Quick play
Near impossible to lose disc (unless a prairie dog takes it)
Cons: Prairie dogs are taking over the course
(Feels like) Barren wasteland
Not very challenging
Other Thoughts: When we played here, the course seemed very dry, barren and sterile. Seems like whatever trees were there before, they died, and tree remnants have been used as obstacles on some holes instead of real trees. With that said, the course is laid out pretty well, but other than a few holes with obstacles, it seems like it should be fairly easy to master by applying "decent drive/decent putt" over and over.
Update 11/23/12 - recalibrating my scores. I have not come back to play this course since visiting it the last time, as the feeling seems to be this course does not really seem to offer much to warrant a trip.

Pros: Good for short/mid game and beginners
Cons: Gets very windy, lots of dirt and dust. Prairie dogs all over the place.

All holes play straight forward and are a bit boring
Other Thoughts: course was getting a lot of use while I was there and the crowd seemed like a lot of beginners playing in large groups.

Pros: you can bring your dog. no one cares if you drink.
Cons: short, flat, 9 holes, wide open, ugly, fairways are close to each other, most people that go here are white trash and have no idea about how to play or any concept of etiquette.
Other Thoughts: don't ever go here unless you want to watch the prairie dogs hump or you are taking someone for their first time.

Pros: -Nice concrete tee-pads
-Baskets are in good shape
-Trashcans and benches and a picnic table spread throughout the course
-Lots of opportunities for an ace as pretty much every hole provides that chance for an ace
-Some of the holes have man made obstacles created around them to make the holes slightly more challenging
-Many of the holes have a board on the post to sign if you get an ace on the hole which is a nice touch for a course.
-Can play a round in about 15 minutes solo if you need a quick stop
-Decent use of some of the few trees on the property
Cons: -Most if not all of the holes are under 300 feet and there is no chance to really just let the disc rip on any of the holes
-Lots of prairie dogs scattered throughout the course
-Course is mostly dirt and as such it can be really dusty and if it rains the course gets very muddy
-Lack of tee-signs- there are post that mark the hole number and have an ace board but they give you absolutely no information about the current hole...distance of the hole at the least would be nice
-Lots of vandalism on the course, several of the boards that you can sign if you get an ace are missing, one of the benches is in bad shape and several of the man made obstacles have either started to fall apart or been pulled down. There are signs posted around the course that say if the vandalism continues the course will be pulled
-Lots of wide open and straight shots
Other Thoughts: This is a good course to work on throwing your mid ranges and putters. Its also a great place to bring beginners as its not very difficult and they will probably have a good time on the course. This course gets fairly crowded in the summer but still doesn't take too long to play. Don't go out of your way to play this course but if you are in the area and looking for somewhere to practice your short game then give this course a chance.

 My New Olympic Sport-Disc Biathalon!

Pros: Schaefer DGC is another of those wonderful little beginner, ACE run courses. This one, however, has a couple of elements which make it unique and in my opinion could be developed into another national pastime.

The first unique feature about this course is the cottonwood stumps and branches which are buried and/or built into obstacles to make otherwise ho-hum holes much more interesting. I've seen similiar features on just 2-3 other courses and it's a great idea and they've really stretched the imagination of it here especially on hole # 7 with it's plethora of dead logs and stumps all twisted and set up to make that hole special.

The other interesting thing here is the ever-present groundhog population. They seem to be watching you on every hole. But I noticed that the seemingly cute little bastards were gorging on what meager grass grows here thereby leaving the golfers to play on ugly brown dirt, which then turns into mud. So this is what I am proposing. I want to designate this course as a trial run for the sport of DISC GOLF BIATHOLON or DGB. In DGB, players play disc golf but also carry a 22 caliber rifle strapped to their back. On each hole they are allowed one shot at one of the little burrowing miners. Hitting/killing one results in taking one stroke off your score. A miss won't change your score. There would have to be a major penalty for accidently shooting another disc golfer. I'm thinking maybe a three stroke penalty would suffice.
In a very short time, the rodent population on this course would be exterminated. The grass would grow and players would be playing on a lovely, lush green carpet of grass. Also companies that sell Disc Golf merchandise would try to design the best new bags to carry your rifles along with your discs.
Anybody with me?
Cons: Currently, the course is semi-dangerous with all the groundhog holes. It's just a pitch and putt. The wind probably gets pretty bad and I hear it turns into a mud hole.
Other Thoughts: Another curious fact about this course is it gets a ton of use and they ALL only carry one disc. Many of the players wear flip-flops. I felt terribly over-dressed with my tennies and a bag ( And I didn't even have a rifle in it).

Pros: Schaefer DGC is a small, easy, flat, plain and simple place to throw a disc. The layout is an oval shape on a field of dirt and grass, dotted with short evergreens and, oddly enough, bare white tree trunks and branches stuck in the ground. It makes for an intriguing foreign-looking landscape. The most interesting hole on the course is #7, where a criss-crossing web of movable bone-dry cottonwood branches can be rearranged by the more creative and ambitious players to increase or decrease the difficulty of the hole. It's a fascinating obstacle the likes of which you'd be hard pressed to find elsewhere. Another positive note is that if you aren't too hindered by players ahead of you, a 9 hole round can be wrapped up in 15 minutes. You could easily switch up some of your tee-off spots and create your own network of holes if you aren't playing through someone else's line. The short distances can be fun if you're just practicing, throwing new discs, going for aces, or rushing through on a time crunch.
Cons: The course can get crowded on weeknights between 5 and 8 PM. If you're a solo player or small group, this not only means you'll be waiting on those ahead of you, but you'll also need to be mindful of other nearby discers and dogs when throwing since some of the baskets are near adjacent fairways. You could get stuck behind novices, an innocent couple enjoying a lazy round, or a family of 5 with toddlers and a stroller. The network of baseball and soccer fields to the west allows swift breezes from the foothills to whip through. There is no protection from the elements, but you should be able to see incoming weather clearly. Prairie dog holes could easily sprain an ankle if you're not watching where you step.
Other Thoughts: This is not a course to go out on a PBR-pounding, bowl-blazing, swearing rampage with your friends. There are plenty of children and families around the park and the picket fences of a residential area are within reach from several of the holes. Take this course for what it is and enjoy the fact that it is yet another decent place to play a beginner-friendly sport.
