Pros: A long and challenging course that has many alternate pin placements so it's always different. The pressure from all the water in play will really cause an adrenaline rush as the disc is in the air. A decent variety of holes and good cement teepads. The disc golf store right next to the course is great!
Cons: Prepare to lose a couple discs, especially if it's windy.
Other Thoughts: I play this course everytime I visit family in Arizona. The wind is a really big factor in how well I play. My scores range from -7 on a nice calm day to +9 on a really windy day. I recommend making it an all day trip to the course. Shopping at Spinners, playing the course, and hanging out at Dukes to watch the game of the week is all part of a great experience.

Tougher than it looks
Pros: variety of challenges, water comes into play on many of the holes around the beginning and end of each 9. multiple pin placements for each hole. grass fairways and little to no rough to contend with.
Cons: Lost discs are always a problem, bring a retriever of some sort. lots of pedestrian traffic to contend with (often stopping in front of you to admire water fowl)
Other Thoughts: disc shop located near the shopping center by the 12th hole with lots of 'used discs' to replenish your stock. they also keep a 'lost disc' database online for discs turned in that were found in the pond.

Shelly Sharpe Course
Four to six pin positions per hole with baskets that rotate through them (weekly?) keep the course interesting for repeat playings. Great holes with good challenges. Concrete tee boxes. Highly visible tee signs.
Walking path along most holes leads to lots of pedestrian and bike traffic to contend with. Water in play on several holes will get some discs wet. Some tee signs seem outdated with respect to the current landscape.
Spinners on the Green Disc Golf Store just off hole #12 will allow you to restock your lost discs. Site of "The Memorial" tournament.

Pros: a great setting for disc golf - middle of the desert - mountains all around - water 3 ponds spanning through the center of the course - variety of shots, great for rollers, site of the Memorial where the course is nearly doubled in length
Other Thoughts: bring a disc diver or some kind of disc retriving device you are gonna need it - most all of the local players carry a variety of underwater disc retrieving contraptions
