Fun course for all playing styles
Pros: Excellent variety of challenges, from nice long drives to technical 200 footers. Fun for beginners, really awesome for intermediate players looking to dial in their throws. Tee pads are nice and big, pins are accurately marked and mostly obvious.
Cons: Some of the OB's are rough, grass covers foot deep trenches and there is a potential for injury. My party trekked through it alright so fingers crossed for you!
Other Thoughts: I crave the long distance throws that 18 had, maybe make a couple more in the field? Overall very good course, wish this was closer to me!

One of the best
Pros: - Challenging course with many different holes.
- Has several long holes to open up on.
- Many challenging holes through the trees.
- Rarely is there "too many people."
- Great signage.
- Very well maintained, perhaps the best in the area.
- Would be a great course no matter where it was placed.
- A couple of sweet shots heading down, up, or over hills.
Cons: - It's no longer my backyard.
- Could use a couple more trash cans, right now it's just the ones in the parking lot, so be prepared to carry out what you bring in. But you will walk by them heading to 5 and again on 11.
Other Thoughts: This place is hard to beat, perhaps it could be done, but not easily.

Pros: This is a great course for players of all levels.
There is a great mix of holes both wooded and open.
I played the course with a local that is very involved in working on course conditions as well as planning the path of new holes.
Great setting in a park with little to no interference.
All concrete tee pads.
Elevation changes were used to enhance holes that made this course plenty of fun to play.
Cons: Only issue for me was that I was glad to be playing with a local as I think navigation on a few holes could be tricky.
Make sure and check the map before you start. The basket you see may not be the one you need for that hole.
Other Thoughts: This course was a blast to play. It will require you use all the skills and shot shaping you have, yet not so difficult that it just becomes frustrating. I really enjoyed playing here and will be back as travel allows.

One of the better courses that I've played
Pros: Nice variety of holes.
Like the elevation changes
Little to no congestion.
Cons: Hard for novices
Swampy during rainy season
Other Thoughts: I love that half of the holes are in the woods while the other half are outside.

Great concrete tee pads!!!
Pros: - New concrete tee pads, which are 12' to 14' in length.
- Recently added next-tee tape and locator tape on the baskets; though, it appears the baskets got disorganized during the concrete installation.
- Incredible variety of holes (tight woods, big open field shots, long downhill bombers, uphill shots, ace runs, par fours).
- Two very challenging par fours (6 and 11) and one long downhill par four (18).
- Variety of basket positions for all holes.
- The new hole 4 long position gives a great opportunity for some to get a long ace.
- Far enough from major population to keep it from getting crowded during the week.
- Great location for a tournament with its nice picnic shelters and lack of interference between the course and other park activities.
- From the parking lot it is easy to start from a variety of holes (1, 3, 5, 14, 18), which can be nice when a large/slow group(s) is already on 1-3, or you only have time for a few holes.
- Well maintained course, so it's easier to locate an errant disc in the woods than it is on other courses I've played.
- Short stocky posts hold well-made tee signs, but (see cons)
- Trash cans at a few key locations (11 tee and tennis courts near 18)
- Bathrooms and water fountains (seasonal)
Cons: - Hole 13 hasn't received a concrete tee yet.
- Some of the signage is looking dated due to the number of new positions not on the signs.
- Can sometimes get crowded on weekend late mornings and weekend afternoons.
- Hole 18 ends a long ways from the parking lot, but you can always play the practice basket as hole 19, or replay 12 and 13 (my preference).
- The road comes into play a bit (1, 2, 5, 11) and I don't like the possibility of damaging a disc. The tee shot on 11 is my least favorite, because the left side is all road and the right side is very tight woods (i.e. lost discs).
- Lots of ways to lose discs in the wooded sections. A ditch on the right side of 8 forms a pond in the winter that eats discs, so 8 is often removed from tournaments in the winter. I carry a Blizzard Wraith (138g) just for hole 8.
Other Thoughts: I strongly believe I wouldn't own so many discs if I didn't play Adair. There is such a great variety of holes that I find myself trying different techniques, and discs, in an attempt to hit that perfect line.

Pros: Large Variety of Obstacles
Extremely Fun, nice flow
Not easy but not too hard
Concrete pads (all, except #13)
Well marked signs designation different hole locations
Map in parking lot
Trash Cans along the course, fairly clean
Course doesn't play through the heavier park usage areas.
I have yet to find a better course in Oregon
Cons: Posion Oak
There are a couple of key spots that eat discs
Haven't played when the course is soaked, imagine it would be in bad shape
Other Thoughts: This is my home course (despite living closer to Bryant), I play here often and never tire of this course. Highly recommend. Recently upgraded concrete pads are really nice, only Hole #13 is still rubber.

Pros: Open Fields on several holes.
Kept mowed in open fields
Usually not a lot of people out there, though that depends on the time of day.
They have several holes where you are throwing uphill, and several that are going downhill, making this a very varied and challenging course.
Well marked tees, you can easily find the next hole.
Multiple positions for baskets, makes the course ever changing.
Cons: Some holes can be muddy.
Poison Oak, watch for it.
In wooded areas the baskets are not always easy to see.
Baskets are not marked clearly with bright color so that you can see them, however the tee does supply a picture of where they could be.
Other Thoughts: This is by far one of the best courses in the Corvallis/ Eugene/Salem area. It's a little out of Corvallis, but it makes up for the drive with a great course that is kept clean, litter free, and looking well kept up.
I would advise you to bring water, as this is a long course.

Pros: Good elevation changes, nothing too extreme, just some nice downhill tee-offs, and some late uphills that challenge your approaches. Nice mix of hyzer/anhyzer flight paths through the trees. Distance differences between holes is nice, going from narrow and technical in the trees, to open and long in the field. Makes you a better player having such narrow fairways with OB on one side, and the "jungle" on the other. Pin placements are very technical for the most part, nestled in the trees on the front nine, and part of the back 9 as well.
Cons: It was wet when we went, but you can't fault the park for that. They were out of maps, and my phone couldn't take a very good pic of the map at the kiosk, so having a small sign pointing the way to the next hole would have been nice for the first timer. We played two rounds, and the second we had no probs, but we played the wrong basket three times on the first round.
Other Thoughts: After playing hole 18 twice, I now realize that I really need to work on my drive power (I seem to be quite the wuss). Overall, this course has been added to my favs...I think this has overtaken both Pier and Horning's in my book. I will be back and often!!!!!! I repeat, THIS COURSE WILL MAKE YOU A BETTER GOLFER! Or, it will make you want to quit...lol.

One Of The Big Three In Oregon!
Pros: It's a wonderful park for a course, some open gentle rolling hills and thickly wooded in other areas. Each hole was unique and offered it's own challenges. Hole after hole I played and thought, if I had the time I'd like to go back and play that hole again. Great teepads. Signs were clear and informative. No signs of vandalism. The park was litter free. Three basket placements for most holes. Just a super well planned and developed course. The fact that it is a county park and therefore a few miles from Corvallis is probably a major plus as that serves to keep the crowds down.
Cons: Well, there's no water to speak of, just a small drainage ditch on one of the wooded holes. Is this alone enough to keep it from getting the five stars?
Other Thoughts: Easily one of the top three in Oregon along with Pier Park and Milo, and I liked Adair more than Milo. There are no boring/mundane holes here. I loved # 14 with the risk/reward of throwing over a grove of trees or going around them. It's probably an fairly easy toss for you 350-400' throwers. # 18 is an 875' slightly downhill, mostly open, chance to show off your arm kind of hole. This a course that could challenge a top ranked player but not frustrate the average disc golfer. I'd love to come back and play it again and again.

Pros: This is the premiere course for the valley south of Portland. It requires many technical shots and can be very unforgiving. Bring your A game for this course and plan on some funky fun shots to get out of the rough. You will be rewarded for nice fairway shots in the woods. End the round with a monster drive (maybe roller) for the 800ft+ 18th hole.
Cons: Poison Oak is vibrant in the summer months on hole 3,4, and 6 mostly. Be Aware. Not much else. The park doesnt get too crowded as its far enough away from the college. Not the best course for beginners. Adv/Pro course
