Pros: such a great course! good elevation change. well marked tees and baskets. plenty of trees. side arm and back hand challenges. gorgeous scenery.
great tee pads.
Cons: we got unlucky and happened to hit the maximum mosquito time because of the monsoons. meaning we were unable to finish our late afternoon round. however we came back the next morning and it was fine.
but to be on the safe side, bug spray may help!

Pros: I really enjoyed this park on my drive across the country. The pin layout is good combination of short and long holes. There are multiple pin positions to keep things from getting stale. There is also a good change in elevation without anything too extreme. Baskets are in good shape and there are concrete tee pads!!! I love concrete tee pads... Navigation from hole to hole was very easy, tee signs and other course signage was present. The course is very scenic inside a larger walking/biking park. For the most part the other park users were not in the way of the course.
Cons: Cons are always the hardest part....
The parking lot was okay and it took a minute to find the actual course, I drove right past it and had to turn around with a massive uhaul trailer... As someone else mentioned don't throw any disc you might get upset damaging. There are rocks and that CE Firebird might be better off left in your bag.
Other Thoughts: There is a lot of land here, they could put together several courses in this park. I was happy with my decision to choose this course over the others for a quick round. Discs start to get stable at this elevation but nothing too bad. I would play here again anytime.

 My Favorite Flagstaff Course

Pros: -Nice concrete tee-pads
-The baskets are looking a little old, but they still catch well.
-Nice tee-signs that show the layout of the hole, the multiple pin positions, and distance on them.
-Course is easy to navigate other than one point (see cons).
-Very pleasant wooded setting for a course.
-The course is very heavily wooded, but each hole had a defined fairway that was fair. The course does require accuracy to score well as the trees will definitely knock down errant drives.
-A couple of the holes are a little more wide open, which helps add some variety to the course. (Hole 10, 11 and 12 are all a lot more open than the rest of the course).
-Hole 12 is awesome especially from the newest position they added to it. (The new pin position is about 500 hundred that throws downhill into a mostly open meadow, and then back uphill a little bit to the basket on a small plateau, which is guarded by a few thick trees. It was by far the best hole on the course).
-Hole 17 and 10 have two tee-pads each. The longer tee-pad on hole 17 is nice because it makes a pretty short hole, quite a bit longer.
-The course has a solid mix of distance with holes ranging between 199 feet up to about 460 feet, depending on which pin position each hole is in.
-Trashcans at hole 1 and 10 long tee-pad
-The course makes good use of the available elevation changes.
-Most of the holes have multiple pin positions
Cons: -Hole 16 tee-pad is easy to miss, especially if the basket for hole 15 is in the B position as the tee-pad for hole 17 is quite close to it. The tee-pad for 16 is about even with the tee-pad of 15 on the other side of the rocky ridge from the tee-pad for 15.
-The rocks on this course could cause some footing issues and will eat up low grade plastic.
-There are long walks between a few of the holes and somewhat a long walk back to the parking lot from hole 18.
-Baskets are a dark red that blend in with the surrounding forest, and they can be very hard to see from the tee-pad.
Other Thoughts: This is an awesome course that is a lot of fun. Of the three courses I played in Flagstaff
(McPherson, Thorpe and NAU), this was by far my favorite course in Flagstaff. If you are in Flagstaff definitely stop at this course.

 Fun Flagstaff Course

Pros: Fun and challenging. Not too difficult. Interesting course. Hole #1 near parking lot and once found, it is easy to navigate. Also played the NAU course, so this course appears to be typical of the area. Lots of pine trees and rocks. The course layout provides throwing lanes for both hyzers and anhyzers on many holes. There are several holes where an ace or birdie are feasible if you throw well BUT you can easily turn a birdie into a bogie or worse. Most holes are around 250-300 feet. There are a few longer ones that are wide open and are fun to grip it and rip it. Had a few friendly players to follow around the first time (Friday early evening) but the other two trips the course was empty.
Cons: Could use more signage (especially leading you to #7 and #13). #13 is especially a bit of a hike, up and around to find the tee box. Following the trail and you will be rewarded. Your discs will take a beating. ROCKS, ROCKS and TREES. You will hit several. There are several holes where you can taco your disc. That is when you throw your disc into a tree near the tee box bending it into a taco shell shape.
Other Thoughts: I like the course so much, I played it 3 times in my 4 days in Flagstaff.
