Pros: Gregg park in west Glendive is a 9 hole course kind of crammed into a tiny park in a little subdivision. It wraps around the outskirts of the park, playing around the baseball and soccer fields.
The baskets are Mach II's or III's. These are brand new and catch pretty well. Perfectly servicable on a small neighborhood aimed at beginners like this one. One pin position per hole.
The tee signs are homemade. They're basically the signs you would put up advertising a garage sale. They have a colorfully hand drawn hole number on the right half. The left side has a printed out hole map from Udisc. This has the basic hole map, distance and par on it. Better than nothing
The tees are just natural grass. These are more than fine here. I highly doubt that there's much of any foot traffic on this course so it shouldn't get rutted up or anything.
The course is basically completely flat, minus the basket for hole 2 being up a small berm. There are trees in play on pretty much every hole. This at least adds a little bit of challenge.
The distances are all on the shorter side with none being over 300 feet. Good course for beginners or kids. As long as other park activities aren't going on at the same time.
The course plays generally clockwise. Navigation is pretty easy to follow once you find hole 1, which is going to be just west of the backstop of the baseball field.
Course is free to play and permanent. Probably never going to be busy with other disc golfers. Decent area for field work on the soccer field.
Cons: The tee signs are servicable for now. I don't know, maybe they're working on some permanent ones. But the ones they have now won't last a winter. They'll be lucky to make it TO winter.
The last 4 holes are just a cluster. They criss cross over and near each other and are all crammed into a tiny little corner of the park. I understand that there will probably never be another person out there but it's still a safety issue.
This is one of those courses where it feels like less could be more. I know some people don't consider anything less than 9 holes a course, and that's fine. But there's still merit to having a nice 4 or 5 hole "practice" area. This is a place that would've benefitted from that thinking.
The "tee" for hole 3 didn't really make any sense or have an actual line from up on the berm. We teed off from the bottom because the low ceiling offered not shot from up top.
Other Thoughts: If you're passing by and want to stop and play this, it won't take more than 15 maybe 20 minutes. Decent place to stretch out before heading over to Makoshika or to do field work in the sports fields.
Other than that, this one doesn't have much for redeeming qualities. Would't recommend this one, especially with such an epic course only ten minutes away. But if you must bag it, it's a quick one.
