Great Destination Course
Pros: This is one of the greatest courses that I play on a yearly basis.
- This course is very well maintained, always in tip top condition.
- Good signage that allows for a very easy navigation of the course.
- Rubber teepads are the best.
- Has a great mix of both longer holes, as well as some shorter technical holes, with a couple of ace runs mixed in.
- Camping on site.
- Almost never crowded, aside from tournaments, there are only a couple other groups playing at the same time.
- Pro shop on site
Cons: - Not much elevation change.
- It is out of the way, but that is part of the allure keeping the crowds down.
Other Thoughts: This course is always a blast. Plan a trip and stay for a coupe of days, get some glow rounds in. It's not necessarily a beginner-friendly course, but less experienced players can still play this course without risk of losing discs, and it is not really a tiring hike of a round.
Almost the entire course plays through grassy park like atmosphere. But dont let that fool you, it still presents a good challenge with the mature trees and well designed holes.

Pros: ace run in the teens was a thrill. we played over and over and there was hardly a soul around. met some great people to play with and even the lady at the state park gate was a fan and an angel. I love the sign which instructs you to dwell on the lives and dreams which have played before you. swell place.
Cons: no cons

Pros: • 21 holes makes for a nice, long round.
• Beautiful park with some massive old growth trees (there is a Cottonwood tree there that must be 9-10 feet in diameter)
• Multiple pins with good signage.
• Holes 11-21 are particularly nice with plenty of birdie chances.
• Wide variety of shots needed.
Cons: • Lots of bugs in late summer.
• A little out of the way (but maybe this is a "Pro")
• Rupert's streets can be confusing, so use your GPS or print directions before you go.
Other Thoughts: This course is #1 in Idaho for a reason. I wish I lived a little closer so I could play it more often. My DG buddies and I did a weekend trip last June. We hit Walcott, Massacre Rocks, Upper Ross Park, and Sister City. It was an epic trip that I plan on making an annual tradition! You could also hit CSI and Rock Creek while you're in the area.

Pros: - Tee pads - love the soft rubber
- Flat with nice challenging hole locations to make it interesting
- well manicured lawns not sage brush
- mix of short and long holes
- 21 holes
Cons: - Off the beaten path
- Flat - a little more change in elevation would make this course a 5
Other Thoughts: - Getting to Hole 11 and 18 was confusing w/o a map.
- the back 11 are short challenging holes. If we camped we would have played them again.
- Car camping looked nice. Not very many people.

another fun weekend
Pros: absolutley stunning course by far my favorite one in idaho. great pin placments, a good mix of short ace runs and long par 3 and 4s. the campsites are great with excellent views of the lake and dam. woke up at 3 in the morning to use the restroom and had a furry racoon at my feet. wildlife is abundant. the course even has a shop to go buy dga discs on site. restrooms and gazeebos spread out through the park. far away from any town so its really never packed.
Cons: the mayflies were terrible all of us and our camping gear were covered head to toe in little green dots. mosqoiutoes are abundant at certain times of the year other than insects beeing pesky i have no cons

Disc Golf Oasis
Pros: - Easy to navigate
- Kiosk with scorecards and info
- Good balance of technical and open holes
- Almost No People
- Well maintained landscaping
- Large trees block sun and wind
- Great tee-pads and signs with pictures
- Bathrooms and drinking fountains
- Won't lose discs
- Firepits, park benches, and covered picnic areas
- Great campground
- If you have kids its a safe place for them to play on the playgrounds and all around the park while you play disc.
Some people have listed "off the beaten path" as a con to this course, but that is one of the great aspects of this course. Its an escape to go play there.
Cons: - Can be a LOT of mosquitoes in the summer
- Entrance fee $5 (but that's why its so nice)
Other Thoughts: Pack a lunch and make a day of it, or camp and stay longer. This is one of the best kept secrets in disc golf. I have played courses in a lot of other states that get a lot of hype, and Walcott is just as good or better than most.
If you have kids this is a great place because they are safe to play with you, or on the playgrounds while you golf. Also fun for bike riding, basketball, and other activities.
If you get there on a windy day the back 9 is great. I have played it in STRONG winds and it is protected by the trees.
****Killer fish and chips at Alaska's Best in Rupert!! It's one of those great dives with awesome food*****
Thanks to the staff at Walcott for how well they maintain this course!!!
