Pros: Nice hole signs. Large concrete tees. Two practice baskets. Large variety in hills and also in trees. Variety of shots needed to score well. Variety in distances of holes. Multiple hole locations.
Cons: There were a lot of people playing this course but there is a reason for it.
Other Thoughts: Really solid course with a creek that winds through a few of the holes. The water really shouldn't come into play to much. If you do end up in the creek it is shallow and clear.

Pros: Great course. Attractive surroundings. Well designed for a variety of shots. Mostly long holes when I played but I noticed there were as many as five basket placement options on some holes. Easy to find and easy to access with good parking playground and facilities.
Cons: Needs a short (200ish) technical fairwaywith a visible basket. Hole 16 has a 207 option but was in the 291 position. The current March 12 setup offered distances that were very monotonous (all seemed 275-325 except 3a which was blind) . Easy fix if the local club pays attention to variety when changing baskets.
Can be crowded with intoxicated players.
Other Thoughts: Exceptional course for Utah.

Not to bad of a course
1 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: The course is located in a park so it makes it good for that family to be able to play there while others throw the course. The park/course is really nice with some open areas and some trees in others. Makes for a good variety of throwing. There is good signs telling where the baskets are and they do a good job at changing basket location to keep the course fresh. There are good concrete tee boxes and benches to sit while resting or waiting for others.
Cons: It is a very popular course and gets busy which can cause waiting. May not be the best course if you are in a hurry.
Other Thoughts: Beautiful park and course. Definitely worth playing and visiting.

Probably the best course in Utah
Pros: - Very nice course, with great scenery and requiring a variety of shot selection
- Some fun elevation, and the creek is a decent water hazard
- Nice people
Cons: - Pretty crowded
- Signage is missing
- A little tricky to navigate in a couple of spots, I had to ask locals for help
Other Thoughts: Definitely a don't miss course in the SLC area. Not terribly difficult, but not a wide open pitch course either. Very good intermediate disc golf.

Pros: Very nice course. Open holes, tree holes, river holes, up shots, down shots, grassy, nice baskets and tee pads, new signs on each hole, tunnel shots, 2 extra holes plus a bonus hole which comes out to 21 holes, nice locals, tournaments, dubs, bathrooms, multiple pin variations.
Cons: Not many cons, some would say the river, but that's just a challenge, not a con.
Other Thoughts: Overall very good course. I played here 4/25/14. Was here from SoCal for work, and got in a practice round with some locals, followed by a Dubs tourney. Course was in great condition, with great views of the surrounding mountains. All the locals were cool, the course was dog friendly. I would recommend if in the area, and even if your'e not in the area, still worth playing...

Run down but still fun
Pros: Solid, large Tee Pads. Just enough Technical challenge. Very well played-in, son few places left on the fringes for discs to hide.
Cons: 95% of all signage has been ripped out or vandalized, very hard course for a first-timer to figure their way around, lots of crossing patterns and overlaps to make that worse, crowded scene plus crowded course design.
Other Thoughts: OK, so I get this course is an oldie, and that shows. Probably my biggest complaint since spending hours trying to navigate this thing the first couple times I played was just the overall crowded feel. That said though, the course is a fun mix of technical challenges and it's one of those short courses where there's a birdie available on just about ever hole for the better players with accuracy off the tee. A good 'locals' course for sure.

Pros: A challenging course, but set up very well. I'm still very new to DG so I sucked at this course, but its nice to have a challenge to be able to get better.
Cons: Wait time is about it but that's not to bad if you're patient.

so good, but so crowded
Pros: Beautiful park with grass, woods, hills, a creek (more of a river by Utah standards) with crystal clear water that makes it easy to spot discs
the design of the individual holes is great. lots of variety and character. super fun that some of the baskets are perched just a couple feet from the roaring creek, making what would normally be a good drive or approach, a frantic wade into the creek to save your disc.
Tee pads are great.
baskets are my favorite--dga mach Vs
The map here on DGCR makes for easy navigation, otherwise you will get very lost.
Cons: Number one con--incredibly crowded. This is the only good course in SLC so it gets all the crowds. I was there on a Wednesday from 11 am to 4 pm. I was on vacation visiting from TN, and apparently so was every disc golfer in SLC because it seemed like they were all there. It was especially crowded around noon, probably because people were playing during their lunch hour.
Slow play-- I think the locals are accustomed to the crowds and have adapted by learning to play very slowly. I am used to playing quickly and I almost jog through my local courses, so it was frustrating to see players sitting at a tee bench for extended periods even when no players were in front of them and then they would stand up and tee off right when we approached the tee instead of letting us play through. Most players we encountered here were very friendly and courteous.
Layout-- I mentioned that the design of the holes is excellent, however, the layout of the holes has a lot of overlapping fairways and backtracking, on a less crowded course this wouldn't be so much of an issue.
Vandalism--there are frames for signs at every tee, but the signs have all been destroyed. I have heard rumors that there is some hate against disc golf in this park. Bummer.
Other Thoughts: loved playing here, even with the crowds. beautiful park.

Pros: - Course is set in a city park that is pretty much devoted to disc golf. There are other activities present here, but it seems the course is well separated from everything else. Shouldn't be any interference.
- First section of the course plays in some pretty thick woods, which require accurate line shaping and control. #2 is a low RHFH flick into the treeline on the right, #3 shoots into the woods with a sharp left turn to get to the long pin, #3a is a tighter wooded hyzer, as well as #3b. #11 and #13 are pretty heavily populated too.
- Lots of other holes play next to dense forest or tree coverage as well; #4 is a long anny line with a hill left and the woods right, with the long pin tucked into a gap. #6 has woods lining the entire right side, #7 shoots through a gap in a thick line of trees, and #8 is a long anny shot with the treeline on the right.
- Rest of the holes are located in a more open area that has a combination of thick patches of trees/schule and individual trees. Lots of places where an errant shot can lead to big trouble due to rough, jail, or general bad lines to the basket. Decent mix of hyzer, straight, and anny lines, with some low ceilings and well protected baskets.
- Fair amount of elevation changes here, which are pretty good. #1 is a valley shot, #3b has an elevated teepad, #4 plays along a hill, #5 and #6 play on top of that hill with slopes left and right, and #7-#10 also have elevated teepads. Adds a lot of variety to the course, well utilized.
- Creek is in play on many holes, adding another element of difficulty to the course. #7 shoots directly over from the teepad; clipping a branch could be disastrous. It is also pretty close to the right of #8 and part of #13. #14 shoots directly over it, though it is possible to go way left to take it out of play.
- Good concrete pads, though #3a and #3b are natural. Tee signs are good with a few vandalized a bit, baskets are good. Navigation can be pretty tough; having a map is a big, big help. Practice basket in front.
Cons: - Biggest con at this course is some serious layout trouble. #7 and #8 have crossing fairways, #7 and #9's teepads are pointed across each other, #12's basket is just off of #13's fairway, and some holes are just generally close together in the more open area. Heads up at all times, or else.
- First half of the course is very interesting, the back half is kind of lackluster. Still challenging, but not nearly as fun.
Other Thoughts: - Solid course overall. A lot of different types of holes, from tightly wooded, to open bombers, to water holes, elevated pads and dangerous rollaways, a little bit of everything. Lots of different pin positions can influence the length and difficulty as well. No matter what positions are currently in, this course is probably a bit tough for beginners, better suited for more experienced players. Have seen groups skip #3a, #3b, #7 and #8 to make things easier.
