Nice Easy Flowing 13 Holes
4 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: • Easy to find and navigate
• Practice basket
• Two teepads per hole (blue/red)
• Three possible pin positions (big map by hole 1 tells you what position is current)
• Fair but tough lines
• Baskets have directions to the next tees in them
• Island hole (unique and fun for a 13-hole course)
• Good mix of distances and lines
• Very well maintained, nice paths
• Hard to lose a disc
• Rubber tees could be concrete. I played the day after some rain and ate **** on one of the pads
• Only 13 holes. Not really a con but wish the quality extended to 18 holes but not much they could do
• Blue tees have a decent walk between some holes. Not bad at all but worth mentioning
Other Thoughts: A very nice and well maintained 13-hole course. Wish they could have put the same quality into an 18-hole course cause this course is great. None of the cons are that big of an issue. Very easy flowing and fair lines where you have a chance at every hole if you hit the right line. I will be coming back to work on my forehand (RHFH) lines as there are quite a few holes for them. Side note: this course could maybe be listed as moderately wooded?? I also update the blue tees to include all 3 pin positions.

Riverside is a cool little 13 hole course.

Pros: On the plus side:
•Signage - there are detailed signs on each tee pad. Some even have specialized instruction, such as the island hole #12.
•Multiple tee pads - There is enough difference between the two shots to make it interesting. There is a clear difficulty difference between the two as well, blue hander than red.
•Related to signage, but there are color coded directional indicators to the next tee in the bottom of each basket. Great stuff.
•Dynamic Veteran baskets - nice and fat and catch a lot of discs. Never threw on them before, but like them a lot.
•Variety - threw almost all 18 discs in my bag. Even get a chance to go big on 13. However, there isn't much need for high speed drivers here. I love the island hole, #12.
•Tee pad brushes - mounted on a hook next to every tee pad. What a nice touch.
•Easy access off of the interstate. Trash and restroom available.
•Extremely clean and well-maintained.
Cons: Wouldn't necessarily call t a con - more midddling.
•Tee pads. They are nice and big, but I am not a fan of rubber. It rained hard the night before, and even after using the brush to remove the puddles, I still damn near broke my neck on one with a major slip.
•13 holes. No idea what the logistics would be to bump it up to 18, but given that it has a river on one edge, probably not happening. Very industrial on the other side.
Other Thoughts: Overall impression:
This is a fun disc golf course - it is close enough to many other courses to make an appetizer or dessert of it, which I bundled with Bethel. It is pretty easy, which can also be a plus depending on how bad other courses may have treated you. I love a course where you can show up and play without a map, and easily navigate to the next hole, and Riverfront has it in spades. 13 holes is better than 9, and if I was looking for a quick fix in the north Metro of Minneapolis, this would be a repeat customer.

Pros: Beautiful property and park,Great mix of woods and grass holes with enough challenge for all!! Two rubber mat Tees each hole with Three basket locations (Veteran Baskets) Waste Recycling containers each hole. Restrooms Picnic Tables and Shelters at start of course. Super signage at each Tee, Nice views of Mississippi River (Not in play) Bring a picnic basket beautiful park.
Cons: Can be busy! at times. Has walk path near some holes (Look out for walkers and bikes) New course with tree stumps marked with Red paint!! (Watch when walking)
Other Thoughts: This is a fun!! course with a good challenge for all but the best,If even a couple more holes could be added it would rate even higher!! If you live in the Twin Cities this is one you have to play several times!!
