Pier is epic enough to play on two different days

Reviews of Pier have me concerned about crowding on a Friday afternoon. Thoughts?

That's always a concern for me there. That place gets busy, with big groups. And you kind of have to start at hole 1, the way the course is setup, without being a dick that is...

Early rounds there seem to be the way to go.

Looks like I'll be throwing my arm off and losing discs at Blue Lake. Is there a disc shop near any of these courses or the airport?

Play Pier before 11am on weekdays for max enjoyment. If you get there later and are solo join up with a group and enjoy some of the local chit chat. That being said, as a local, I avoid playing Pier altogether because of the crowds. So many great courses in the area though

It's one of the best courses in the PNW. Could be worse ways to spend a day.

Disc Golf Depot is the closest and best shop in the Portland area. You must make a stop and visit with Jerry for a bit

If you're still looking to play a course representative of courses in the PacNW, just go to Pier when you get in and take your chances with the crowd. Blue Lake is a great course, well worth playing, but it does not in any way represent a more typical PNW course. Honestly, it's alot of wide open fairways, with lots of tall grass OB, although the grass is not likely very tall right now.

You might have trouble trying to get to any other decent course than those two with Friday traffic and all, so those are probably your only two options today.

I've never had crowd issues playing there, no matter the time of day. Besides, when there are others around at Pier, they're all very cool ppl
