Nice course for beginners

Reviewed: Played on:Apr 9, 2023 Played the course:once

Pros:

Nice, level concrete tees
Small neighborhood park in upscale area
Very good beginner friendly course
Not busy with other players
Good practice course for skilled/experienced players

Cons:

Only 9 holes (no room for more though)
Hole number only on small post by tees
Too little variance in hole distance (6 are between 225-245)
High grass & weeds throughout/not mowed very often

Other Thoughts:

I think the correct way to review this course is as a beginner course because that is obviously what it is. Not all courses can be long, wooded, & challenging for skilled/experienced players. For what it is this course is very good - a good introduction to the game for new players. I'd only like to see more variation in hole lengths (a couple from 300 to 325 feet) and add the hole length to the tee posts.

Trail Blazer Park 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:Apr 15, 2022 Played the course:once

Pros:

-- Nice new, level concrete tee pads.
-- Nice course flow. Once you find No. 1 (north end of the parking lot), you shouldn't have any trouble. The course mostly plays clockwise around the edge of the park.
-- Port-o-potty on site.
-- Baskets appear to be used, but they still catch well.

Cons:

-- No map.
-- No seating at tees, but the course is so short and compact that this isn't much of an issue.
-- Holes 3-5 play too close together and a little close to the playground.
-- Almost no obstacles. The trees are sparse and too small to create any significant obstacle. Ground is pancake flat. Water (or at least a drainage ditch) could be in play on 6, 7 and 9, but 7 is the only real danger with the ditch 15 feet left of the basket.
-- Tee are marked by orange signs on small posts. They just have the hole number. You can see the basket, so it's not a big deal, but I would like to have distances.

Other Thoughts:

-- When you turn south on Harris Creek Road from U.S. 84 (across from the airport), the fourth left will keep you on Harris Creek Road. Shortly after that, Harris Creek Road makes a gentle, sweeping right turn. Go left at that Y and follow the road into the park. Do NOT use the address listed; you'll end up at a house (on a different street) a few hundred yards from the course.
-- With no holes as long as 250 feet (and three shorter than 200 feet), this is a beginner and family friendly course. It's decent (perhaps even good) for that target audience. Experienced player will likely be bored before they finish one round.

Beginner course 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:Aug 5, 2021 Played the course:once

Pros:

Sweet tee boxes
Baskets still have some use in them
Reasonable course flow

Cons:

Tree's are just too small right now
course is very short,
Weird to get to

Other Thoughts:

Nice little neighborhood course. Well, when I say nice, this is a course for beginners or families, not for disc golfers.
I should mention that these baskets are "used" Not sure which course they came from, but they are recycled baskets for sure. That I am glad to see. Update our big course and use the old baskets for family friendly beginner courses.

What tree's have been planted in the park need to be given some time to grow and get larger for not just shade, but to give you something to throw around.

Right now this is just a course to throw your upshot disc and hit your putts.

Right now the ground is rough in spots, this will be better if they keep up a regular mowing schedule.

Would I play here again? Nope, if I lived here locally, I might bring a new players out, but I would never go play here for any other reason.

Not worth the stop 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:Jun 30, 2021 Played the course:once

Pros:

9 Baskets.In a new park area. That is about it.

Cons:

No elevation changes the trees are too new for any shade or interest. Its really just 9 holes all straight. If you leave in the neighborhood good practice or to learn. If you are good i guess you can try 9 ace runs since most are 180-210. But there is nothing of interest and the park is sorta hard to drive to. It really is not even worth the 5 minute detour.

Other Thoughts:

Someone gave them some used baskets and they set them up but since it looks like a flood area not much to work with. Maybe in 10 years when the trees grow it will be a little better.
