Next to the Rodeo
Pros: This nine hole park course comes with all the usual park amenities: mowed grass, easy to find, bathrooms which were open when I played here in early June. Since it is tucked away in the southwest corner of the state there are no alternatives for banging chains for many miles. Many short holes with few obstacles should make scoring low and provide ample ace run opportunities. I recommend this course for beginners and people itching to get in a round when traveling I-80. The course flows well from the northwest corner of the lot and finishes there at nine. There are few if any interferences the design did a good job avoiding other park facilities. One hole doglegged and flirted with an out of bounds, which to me added more challenge.
Cons: The course and available parkland is short and limited to the openness of a park. Some of the tee signs are missing but the course is so short that a post is all you should need since you will see the basket from the marker and understand where to go from there. This is the sort of practice pitch and putt course that many players would only need to take a putter to or just one driver and the putter. Its funny how even an unmemorable course such as this can still be a lot of fun.
Other Thoughts: Long story short, it's a nine hole pitch and putt course. The park is next to a rodeo ground. That when I played was full of sheep. I don't know what ranchers do with sheep, but whatever they do, they were doing it at a large building on the rodeo grounds right next to the park. As a disc golf tourist, it was the many hundreds of sheep that made this course unique for me. I've only been to Evanston a handful of times and I always think about the short scene in SLC Punk where our heros flip out the locals during quest to buy real (stronger) beer. Perhaps they should have stopped off at Hamblin Park to bang the chains instead of causing all that trouble.

Just Passing Through
Pros: Park is well maintained. There seems to be a lot of potential for development of more holes and making this course much more challenging. I played a round or two with some local IT guys (Steve) and others) who were on a lunch break. Aloha guys...
Cons: Only 9 holes. Too many mando's, but I suppose this was the only way to make the course more challenging for now. Some confusion on hole signage.
