 Lazy September Afternoon

Pros: Well laid out for the space provided. Multiple pin locations. Concrete tee pads with a black rubber pad extension at the front for your follow through. Professional signage. Practice basket. A well landscaped park that includes small rolling hills. Friendly locals.
Cons: Baskets are pretty old and at least one has been abused and repaired, maybe multiple times. There is suppose to be a restroom in the park. Couldn't find it. Not a good situation. I even asked a local resident.
Other Thoughts: I stopped in Eugene on other business and decided to check this course out. This is a typical city park with a 9 basket short course. I wouldn't go out of my way to play this course, but if I was a local this is the only game in the city. I could see myself playing here at least once a week if my location was near. Dexter is 17 miles away outside the city.
No matter what others say this course fills a need and by the number of people playing it everyday it fills it very well. It really is shame that Eugene only has 2 courses in the local area. This is a busy course; walkers, bikers, school kids, and of course disc golfers. Safari is also played here, don't be surprised if the group behind you starts throwing from the previous tee to the basket you just threw your drive on.

Pros: The best thing about this course is the baskets are changed quite often, which makes for somewhat of a challenge. Other than that it is just your typical 9 hole course
Going in the morning is the best thing about this course because there is literally no one there.
Cons: Extremely busy if you don't play in the morning, and their are some locals who believe to know everything so watch out for them. That being said there are also some really awesome locals with tips and fun to chat with
Muddy sometimes..
no bathrooms
walking paths all through course
Other Thoughts: there are only 2 holes above 300 so the "experienced" player won't need more than a buzz/roc on almost all the holes.

Overall it is a nice little course to get your disc golf fix if you need it. But if you come in the afternoon onwards it will be very busy and will take you well over an hour to play just 9 holes..

Pros: Good course to begin on. Very open and hard to lose a disc. Friendly locals. Easy to navigate. Centrally located. And most of all fairly clean.
Cons: Almost too easy of a course. Hardly any challenges. No water, no elevation changes, and few trees. Course was crowded in the afternoon. Only 9 holes to choose from, and pedestrians seem to be oblivious to the fact that they're in a fairway. Not a scenic course either.
Other Thoughts: Good course to practice on. Wouldn't want to partake in a tourney here. Good to go out and throw a few discs at a basket but that's about it.

 Good Place to Learn

Pros: Centrally located and easy to get to, good place for beginners as the holes are short and straight forward, almost no chance of losing discs
Cons: very uninteresting holes, crowded in summer, only nine holes, muddy in winter and even in places in the summer, tee box info is unclear
Other Thoughts: this is a pretty unremarkable course, but does have advantages for someone learning how to play or just looking for recreation

Pros: This is a very easy course to begin on. Also, a great course to shake off the winter rust if you need.

The only hole I would consider to be technical is the 1st for a backhand thrower because it is down a corridor of trees and to the right of them is OOB. The rest are fairly wide open. After you play the 3rd hole the wind is a bit more of a factor and it is a head wind for 4 & 5 a cross wind for 6 & 8 (kinda) and a tail wind for 7.

GREAT course to bring a new disc too and practice with. NO chance of loosing a disc.

Nice little 9 hole course with an unofficial 10th (locals know what I'm talking about)
Cons: Very swampy and wet in the lower sections. Around the 9th tee is always a sloppy, muddy, wet mess. Always a drunken bum somewhere on the course, usually next to the tee for #4 under the tree drinking and listening to music. I have had many songs stuck in my head for the rest of the round because of this lol
Other Thoughts: It's close so I play it on weekdays. I really REALLY wish they would build a nice 18 hole course in Eugene.

Pros: A nice place to get out and get your disc golf fix. The course has some trees but for the most part is fairly wide open. Don't forget your glass'll be hard to see through the cannabis smoke on this course.
Cons: The holes are short and elementary.
The haze of the hippie smoke make some of the shots unclear.
Other Thoughts: Fun course a quick disc golf fix.

Pros: It was close into town.
Nice locals that will help you figure out the course.
Cons: Lots of mud
tee pad not flat and not aimed at the hole
could get really busy
Other Thoughts: This is a good place to practice but it was a little to simple. no elevation and only a few small bushes in the way. signs did not tell you which pin spot is in place.

 My Local Course

Pros: Because it is a fairly open field course, there is not much opportunity to lose discs. Its a great course to bring new disc too, gives you a chance to work out the kinks. Also, a great course for first time players lots of short holes. They do a good job of using multiple pin positions which is nice for me because that I play the course every week.
Cons: The course can get very busy on summer evenings. It also gets very muddy if there has been a rain, so bring shoes you don't mind getting dirty.
Other Thoughts: This is a nice little city course and also my home course. I would like to see an 18 hole course in the city.

Other Thoughts: College.

 Nice Little Neighborhood Course!

Pros: This is a decent little course to have in your pretty, little neighborhood park. The course just winds mostly around the outside of the park trying to avoid pedistrians. There's a little bit of elevation, enough trees to get in the way but no water to really make it unique So what you have is your standard 18 hole city type course. It's worth playing if you live close or are in Eugene and you won't lose any plastic.
Cons: Nothing really, might get a little crowded with the other park users on sunny days but they're done a nice job designing a course working with the somewhat limited space and layout of the park.
Other Thoughts: Although nothing to get really excited about about, I've enjoyed playing there a few times while visiting friends in Eugene, the land of the world's uglist football uniforms!
