Overall Splendid, Fun Course!

Pros: In my opinion, this is an overall stellar course. Some of the highlights are as follows:
-Elevation variation. This course plays in and out of the woods on the side of a mountain. This makes for some great shots and some added difficulty therein as well.
-Scoring chances. While birdies are out on the course, the trees and elevation really make you work for some of them. If you short game is not accurate, you will struggle on many of these holes!
-27 holes: who doesn't love an extra 9 to keep you on the course for longer!
This is truly a wildly fun course that I highly recommend for folks in the area!
Cons: To be quite honest, the only factor keeping this course from a 5 rating for me is the lack of signage. Some tees are labelled with the hole number, but many are missing this feature, and with multiple tees for each hole, this can get quite confusing. For the most part, however, paths between holes are well-worn and navigation is rather straight-forward.
Other Thoughts: While many may argue that the tee pads are inadequate, I found that the short length of all these holes didn't necessitate a long or flat tee box, and that the character there really fit the course vibe!
Overall, Whistler offers an extremely fun, scenic disc golf course here at Spruce Grove Park. A variety of elevation, tree density, and hole length made for a fun challenge, even if birdie chances abound. A great course in a fun town, and worth the drive up for a day of fun!

Pros: This is an amazing course. Definitely the best course I have played at. 27 amazing, unreal, fantastic, chose a word. It's going to be memorable course for sure.
They don't get much better than this. It has everything! Try to play this course because it is great!
Cons: Only Con's I can think of is that it was kind of hard for us to find the course initially. We asked the people at the spa where the course was. First time we played we were kind of freaked out because it was raining and the powerlines were buzzing.

Pros: Amazing Views, Great changes in elevation, fairly well maintained, not too difficult to navigate. 27 Holes, (18 of which would get a 5 rating). I'm not too sure what else to say, except this is easily the nicest course in BC (that I've played). There is simply nothing else like it around, combine the stunning views with the innovation in holes and, well it makes for a very fun day of golf.
Cons: One of the 9 hole layouts isn't great. There are a few tonals, which sucks in my opinion. Its REALLY hard to find the 1st hole. Power lines above for a few holes. Its probably completely unplayable in winter time.
Other Thoughts: I like the wilderness hike type courses, and as far as that goes, this one cannot be beat. Bring water, and a snack (your car will be left behind for the duration of your round).

Pros: This course is so well planned out. At first when I was walking up to it I thought that the overhead powerlines ruined what was otherwise a lovely alpine disc golf course. However, as I began to play, it didn't take long to notice how well the holes are laid out in the open, shots around the power poles, and through the woods. The powerlines are actually used as another effective tool to challenge the golfer. This course is fairly well signed, as I never was lost. It has very nice forest scenery, playing over large boulders and through forests of Firs and Cedars. There are dual tee pads which enchance the replay-ability factor.
Cons: This isn't much of a con, but most of the holes are quite short, it might be nice to have a couple extra longer holes where one could really unload the driver. Another weak con is that the harsh terrain chews up one's disc relatively quickly compared to mostly grass or brush covered courses. Finally, because this course is located at the base of a ski mountain resort town, it's covered in snow 5-6 months of the year.
Other Thoughts: I wonder how often bears are sighted at this course, lots of bears around Whistler. Also, these picture do not at all do the course justice, head up to Whistler to see it for yourself, I doubt you'll be disappointed.
