Pros: Nice use of space creating some challenging shots.

A nice variety of different holes. There is a small tunnel shot, some bomb distance shots, a dogleg right which needs a forehand or anny shot, a wooded hole, downhill, uphill etc.

12 holes means a nice quick round.

I have never seen it busy.

Concrete pads.

Good double chained baskets.

Free to play.

Cons: Maintained by community mostly which means course can look rough at times.

Easy to lose a disc in tall grass.

No tee signage.

Itchy legs walking in the tall grass...pants recommended if not too hot out.
Other Thoughts: This course is within a mile from Herbert Hoover DGC, and the two make for a nice 21 hole circuit. I like Ewing because its a mild challenge, never busy, and you can pump a few distance shots out there. The community is doing great work there, and the course is always improving. Put it on your list if you are traveling through! A great day can be had playing Champoeg, Ewing and Hoover which are all within 10 minutes (39 holes total).

- Lots of elevation change.
- Great mixture of woods and open field shots.
- Baskets and tees are in excellent condition and well maintained.
- Good variety of short and long holes (up to 400')
- Good course for testing all aspects of your game.
- When the course isn't mowed, it will take you a long time to find your discs becuase the grass gets really high.
- The map can be hard to read sometimes, especially for first timers.
- Some of the holes have 3 alternate locations and be blind, so it can be frusturating not know where you're throwing until you actually get to the basket.
Other Thoughts:
This course is fun, but during the rainy season it gets really muddy. All in all though, I really enjoy this course whenever I get a chance to play it.

Pros: Ewing young is a great course on a nice piece of unused land (other than the disc golf course) that sits between a skate park and a river behind what looks like someones backyard. The park plays up, down and across rolling hills so there is alot of elevation shots as the designers did a great job with this one. I am glad they put twelve really good holes in here instead of trying to fit eighteen holes which would of sacrificed how good this little course is. Navigation was a breeze after the only other group on the course pointed us to hole two. I was surprised at how well maintained the course was from the stand point of the grass which looks like if unkept it could get very long and unruly. The entire course was in good shape with little to no litter and vandalism except for one bench which serves the purpose of holes three and seven, it was broken and had spray paint on it.
Cons: Someone could say that this course is a little too wide open and doesn't have enough obstacles. The pin placement for a couple of holes were very close to the edge of a small cliff that led to a river so if you ace run or birdie run you have a chance of losing your disc. If thrown off the fairways there is some thick bush and stickers that could eat your disc or if you are wearing shorts could tear your legs up.
Other Thoughts: I believe the hole distances for this course on here are the length of the short position. When I played here they were all in the long position and there were many 400'+ throws involved with this course with many throwing into headwinds or crosswinds which make this course a pretty good challenge. After hole five or six I kept saying that this course needed a few technical wooded holes to round it out and holes ten and eleven delivered in that regard. This is one of my favorite courses with less then eighteen holes and I would gladly come back here to play.

Pros: This is a fun little 12 hole course that doesnt get played much (kinda hard to find). Park by skate/bike area and hike acorss field South through little opening right of house/buliding to hole 1. You can rip almost any type drive at most holes (RHBH, LHBH, Hyzers, ANYZ, Forehands, Thumbers etc) and be rewarded. Its a great place to practice drives in relatively open area. Good course to hit if in the area. Not crowded expect for dog walkers from neighboring homes etc. Tees are pretty well marked.
Cons: Grass/weeds do get tall and not often mowed (at least last summer 2007 when I played it frequently). Watch for dogs/owners as they apparently do not know what disc golf is and will walk right in front of folks driving.

Pros: Nice course with the pins tucked away in the trees. Decent one to practice on.
Cons: High grass, not good for your shoes after it rains. You can pretty much garaunte your socks will be wet unless you bring waterproof shoes.
Other Thoughts: Little hidden spot in the community
