The Arizona Standard
Pros: As most people know, this course is the center of disc golf in Arizona. Good variety of shots. Good player support (Spinners staff is so friendly and helpful - Duke's nearby too) I am a disc junkie so it is cool to show up on Saturday morning and buy some new plastic to try before hitting the course.
I have found over the years that disc golfers in general are happier, kinder, more helpful and mellower than most people, This is certainly true with the crowd at Shelly and the staff at Spinners. The guys at Spinners seem to know who pays their bills, they are good folk and will usually toss in a mini or a bottle of water with a smile on their face. I can't afford lessons but they will always be quick to give you a few words on discs in their store.
Cons: I lost discs my first 4 out of 5 times on this course and almost always lose at least one. This is not so bad since probably half of my discs were eventually recovered.
Other Thoughts: There really isn't much negativity that can be said about this course - it just feels good to play it. Shelly has a high replay value. Best hole - #8 smooth RHBH hyzer with ace potential (someday) this hole is just cool. It feels so smooth to throw. I could replay this one hole again and again.
I am not a tournament player but this is the most active course for events I think. Do yourself a favor - park at Spinners and start on hole 12 instead of hole one. The parking is better - Spinners is like your own pro shop - and starting on 12 gives you 5 holes to warm up before the dreaded water shots of #18 and #1.
Buy a couple of "range balls" because chances are high you will leave a disc in the water -
