Pros: Well maintained, concrete pads on every tee. A couple of long holes. Easy to ace on 8, and 9. Nice flow to each tee pad.
Cons: Lack of respect from other players. Swearing, and drinking on church grounds is lame. Becoming more popular.
Other Thoughts: Show respect! This is private property....upsetting to see people leaving beer cans, and bottles laying around. Don't ruin it for the rest of us.

Pros: Glenwood Community Church is a great little nine hole practice course on the side grounds of the Church, right next the giant parking lot. We were there during Sunday service and were able to play the course which is really cool. There are a lot of neat little technical holes in the trees and one or two longer holes. They did a really nice job with the layout, flow and navigation, there is even good baskets and concrete tee pads.
Cons: Sundays the parking lot gets jammed full of cars and it might be really hard to find a space anywhere near the course. There isn't a ton of challenge but the course is still fun to play, I would come here long before the WSU course a couple miles away.
Other Thoughts: There were these hanging basket things on a post near hole one that I thought was for plants but I was told it was for people who want to borrow discs to play, most likely Church members, this is a great idea. The baskets were empty, hopefully someone will donate some more discs there; I would have if I had known what it was for when I was there.

Pros: Nice tees and baskets. Good collection of open and tight holes. Good use of the little elavation they have there. There is a set of porta potties by hole one.
Cons: No tee signs or signs to next tee pad. The porta potties are off the farway on hole #1 so watch out you may hit them.
Other Thoughts: This small church course is by far on the of the better 9 holers that i have played around the area.

Pros: Creative use of limited space
Labor of love for the disc golf community
Good course to introduce newbies to the sport
Nice course to practice various shots
Well maintained
Cons: After hole 1, no signage or tee markers
Very redundant holes (mainly due to the limitations of the space available)
Other Thoughts: I don't like dogging anyone who puts up a course for people to enjoy--especially when it is a private property course like this one...
It's a decent course, especially for those who live in the area -- I wouldn't go out of my way to play it though

Pros: I really nice course. Plays well I did need a map which was at the first tee. We where the only one playing it. Nice clean course no trash. Easy to find.
Cons: They should make it a 18 hole course there is plenty of room for it.
Other Thoughts: Pointer on basket to show you where the next tee is.

Pros: I simply fell in love w/ this course. It flows very well and offers different hole lengths/obstacles. It is well kept having nice concrete tee pads and the baskets are in great condition. A few trash cans are offered and there is two porta pottys on site. Score cards are provided and a laminated course map.
Cons: i can't really think of any except that the course closes down occasionally for church events.
Other Thoughts: very close to leverich DGC and a fun fast course to play.

Pros: The course is set up in a little wooded area next to the Glenwood church. It's just a very well designed little course. I thought the first seven holes were all challenging and enjoyable. Holes you want to go back and throw again. Nice teepads, ample parking. Golfers seem welcome there. I can see why the Vancouver community is so excited about having this little course.
Cons: After enjoying the first seven so much, I felt #'s 8 & 9 were a little boring, just straight 225' with no obstacles. I think at certain times, the church closes all or part of the course for church functions. You might want to call ahead before coming from too far.
Other Thoughts: It's a great little course for a practice round, to bring a newbie or your family. I'm sure the church community uses it for summer camps or retreat or youth groups.

Pros: -Good teepads
-Fun course design
-Nice mix of short and medium with a couple long.
-Good baskets
-Discs available at hole 1 for ppl to borrow.
-Great place for beginners to get their feet wet.
-Events to participate in.
-Friendly atmosphere.
-Easy to navigate.
Cons: -Can't really think on any.
Other Thoughts: For the size available, this is a pretty well designed 9 hole course. It's fun for newer players and advanced players alike. There are plenty of opportunities to play safari golf here to make it more challengin, and everything is maintained very well.

Also, it's great to have a course like this for the Vancouver residents to practice on. Saves a ton of time not to have to cross the river for a practice round.
