Possibly The Worst Terrain Ever? 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:Aug 13, 2013 Played the course:once

Pros:

Dear Course Designer:

While I greatly admire your resolve, hard work and tenacity, I have to question your sanity?

You may be like a pioneer settler in the 1800's who was given the absolute worst piece of land imaginable, scrub desert, no water, nothing but sand and scorpions and tried to plant crops on it only to starve after a couple of years of back breaking work.

That's the situation here. This pile of ankle busting volcanic rocks is undoubtedly the worst location for a disc golf course ever.

Having the cool, refreshing waters of the river so close probably makes the matter worse. Makes people want to leave the volcanic ruins here for the refreshing river.

Cons:

No baskets, just Tone Poles and they're not even the real "Tone Poles". They are some homemade plastic ones that don't even make a nice ringing noise when struck. Just a dull "THUNK".

The holes are too long for this environment.

Navigation was a nightmare.

The signs are already getting vandalized.

Using tile for the tee signs seemed liked a good idea but they're too tempting and too easily broken by the teens.

Other Thoughts:

Like I said, I give your max props for effort but this is just the worst terrain ever. There's got to be a better piece of property somewhere down here on which to build a course. Three months and this course will be history.

Gold Hill Sports Park Gold Hill Oregon 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:Jul 22, 2010 Played the course:once

Pros:

There is a start here and there is some potential for decency if mega work is done. It's next to a river which you may want to cool off in if you play on a hot summer day.

Cons:

This place is absolutely leacherous perhaps the worst I have ever played. Do not come here unless there is no other choice. It's easy to lose discs. The footing is poor. Most of the plants look hideous. It seems to be a wall to wall sticker patch, and you get the feeling that a rattler could latch onto your ankle at any time. As frugal as I am I had to throw my socks away after the round because it could take forever to remove all of the stickers.No baskets and less than desirable dirt pads. The place is the square root of disaster.

Other Thoughts:

I don't want to sound ungrateful because somebody tried to get something going here which is more than I have done. If you are a friend of disc golf, somebody please help this place

Very Rough Course 2+ years drive by

Reviewed: Played on:Aug 5, 2010 Played the course:once

Pros:

The course was on our route to Crater Lake. It looked like there was some variety if you knew the course well.

Cons:

The course was somewhat difficult to find in the park and nearly impossible to follow once we found it. Thick underbrush threatens to gobble up discs on every hole. Many holes were blind into thick brush, and tee pads were barely visible.

Other Thoughts:

This course might get better once some serious work is put into clearing out the undergrowth and showing the layout of the course better, but until then you should find a different course in the area.
