Pros: Quick and easy, depending on what time.
Park is well maintained.
Good course for experienced players to practice aspects of their game.
Cons: Busy park for non-disc activities as well, people can be dangerously oblivious. Because of the path the course weaves around it is hard to say this is a good learning course. The risk of hitting someone is high.

Pros: Very accessible.
No trudging through brambles.
Good for beginners, honing skills, or going for some aces.
Little to no chance of losing a disc.
Good tee boxes and baskets.
Easy to navigate, obvious flow.
A round can be played very quickly.
Cons: Heavy disc and non-disc use, sometimes a wait at the tee box.
Not challenging for intermediate/skilled golfers.
All par 3s.
Only 9 holes.
Almost no elevation change.
Swampy when its rainy, probably because its so flat.
Other Thoughts: The course is heavily used because of its location in a somewhat busy part of Eugene. Lots of people use the part apart from golfers. Its an older course that was probably fine as far as length goes when it was new but as courses got longer and better Westmoreland was stuck; hemmed in by the city. Now its almost laughably short in comparison to more modern courses. A couple holes have been lengthened recently, which has helped. Its maintained like you'd expect a city park to be. Grass, some interesting/challenging trees here and there, but nothing that you could lose a disc in. Graffiti on the info plaques but they're still readable. It can get busy and not everybody is into/aware of letting people play through. When its clear, though, a single can play a few rounds in a short amount of time. I've had the majority of my aces on this course.

 Parking in the Park

5+    5/27/2015   5/28/2015
Review By: Ocastra
Played: 7  Reviewed: 4  Exp: 3.8 Years
Pros: Well Kept, mowed often as a city park should be.
Baskets are clearly in the open for most shots.
Good beginner course.
Wednesday night Doubles.
Cons: Very short holes, most under 300 feet.
Often crowded with few places to sit, and often a long line at hole 1.
Very slow play in most times due to relative skill level of most of the people in the park. Have spent an hour and a half playing 9 holes on a short course before.
Very poor drainage making the park mostly unplayable in late fall/winter/early spring.
Most shots are park and Putt resulting in mostly birdies.
Other Thoughts: Good course to practice shots,
This is the only course in Eugene aside from Alton Baker which is pay to play.
If you enjoyed this give Dexter and Cottage Grove a look as they are the next step in playing and will most likely give you new goals and challenges to learn.

Pros: The course plays through a nice grassy city park. There isn't much elevation, a couple tiny slopes add a little bit of roll away potential. There aren't a ton of trees, but they're used fairly well to protect some of the pins and make players be at least a little creative in how they get to the pin. The first hole is a fun tunnel shot, and a couple others make you choose whether you're going over the smaller trees or trying to keep it under the canopy. The signage is plenty good to find your way around, and there seem to be a ton of locals around if you need some extra help finding the next tee. The multiple tees offer a little extra variety for locals playing here regularly.
Cons: The course isn't all that safe. There is a walking path in play that can easily lead to conflict with other park users. Several spots have overlapping fairways or tees in the landing zone of other holes, I hate seeing that and it's even worse on beginner friendly courses where the average accuracy is going to be worse.

The course is pretty open overall, a hyzer is an option on almost all the holes and the scattered trees aren't enough to make it difficult to recover from bad drives. The holes are fairly short overall and the couple slightly longer shots still aren't all that interesting.
Other Thoughts: This is a great beginner course, with reasonable lengths and no punishment for errant throws. Experienced players won't find much challenge or variety here, though it is a decent place to work on rollers with nice short mowed grass. I wouldn't go out of your way for this one, there just isn't a whole lot of excitement here.

Pros: -Nice baskets
-Teepads are fine
-Tee signs work
-Multiple pin positions
-Well taken care of city park
Cons: -Extremely muddy
-Not much variety
-Only 9 holes
Other Thoughts: Situated in a beautiful city park in the middle of Eugene. The flow of the course is awesome. Hole one you throw straight through a row of trees with the basket sitting right between the last row. The course is actually set up really well with the land that it uses. It can get a tad bit busy being the only course in city limits. Matter of fact there was a wait time at every tee when I played. It was fine I enjoyed the company I had so I was in no rush. There are multiple pin locations. All were in position A when I played. I will definitely play this course again in the summer.

  Feel Good Course

Played: 24  Reviewed: 1  Exp: 4.5 Years

Pros: Nice, open fairways
Easy holes that make for a "feel good" score
All but one basket is visible from the tee
Good easy course to play glow golf
Cons: Too many people on nice days
Alot of bums!
Open field shots make for a hard game in the wind
Other Thoughts: This is the closest course to my house making it my home course. It is a perfect practice course to work on your game and test new discs. parking is easy and its close to stores. It can get packed and there may be bums, but normally everybody is really chill and i meet a new friend every time!

Pros: -Wide open holes
-Chance of losing discs as minimal as possible
-Close to stores
-Not many garbage cans, however, you can toss recyclables by the tee posts and the bum brigade does collection nightly
Cons: -Crowded on nice days
-Large groups are a regular sight
-Wait times can be pretty bad
-Shared park with a walking path through it
-Non-golfers don't seem to realize where not to chill
-Bums bums bums!
-The bums aren't as bad as the tweakers
Other Thoughts: This is my home course. I play it all the time. As much as I love this course, there's plenty of trash to talk about it. Yes, pedestrians and non-golfers can pose an issue, but it's not really out of control, they just make you wait an extra minute or so for them to get out of the way. This course is like a training ground for me. There aren't really any technical shots or long holes, just 8 wide open drives and one tree-tunnel fairway. I love this course, I just wish I didn't get asked for change, lighter, drinks, etc. Every time I showed up

Pros: Concrete tee pads. Baskets are in good shape. Close (Eugene & Springfield). Nice open short course (great for beginners). Can be played relatively quickly (if you go early).
Cons: Very poor conditions when wet (Nov-May). Some holes become unplayable. Can get crowded in the afternoon/evenings when the weather's nice. May find a few homeless folks sleeping under trees if you get their before 9 am. Never had any beef, just hate to wake someone up when their sleeping. May not be challenging enough for advanced players (I wouldn't know).
Other Thoughts: I'm a novice, so I still find this course fun. It's downtown, so I can get there quick and play 9 holes in 35-45 minutes. I often play twice. If you don't mind getting there in the morning, it's rare to have to wait for anyone. Afternoon or evening when the weather's good can sometimes cause a line up, but most everyone is friendly so it's not bad.
