Pros: Varied terrain - trees, fields, hills, water, all of it beautiful. Easy to keep track of your discs. Great location right off I5.
Cons: Somewhat limited parking, but it's easy to see how crowded the course will be. 12 holes leaves you wishing for 6 more.

Pros: - Many long 300 feet holes
- Several Anhyzer and hyzer shot holes
- You can pick up a game with just about anyone
- Challenging for most people
Cons: - After hours is not safe to be at the park
- There are drug users and homeless people on the course. People use drugs usually after work hours and are in big groups. Its better on the weekends or from 3-5 on the weekdays. You can sometimes pass these groups while playing, but they are also playing more near dark really and in the summertime.
- Hole 4 is really easy to lose a disc.
Other Thoughts: -I would say this is an advance course, it would be hard for a beginner to learn during busy hours because of the long holes. Once you can make a par 4 on a 250 foot hole you would be fine.
- Glenwood community church park is a quieter course that is in the area. It has smaller distances to reach the baskets and is more of a beginner course. There are a few 300-350 foot holes . This would be more for beginners.

Leverich Park= Sweeeet
Pros: Great layout with good elevation changes. Love the concrete pads along with good signage to help navigate. Hole 2 offers great ace opportunity.
This park used to be a s*hole, but now that the course has been put in, it is vastly improved.
Cons: Can get crowded, but I say the more the merrier.
You can easily lose a disc in the creek, but no risk= no reward.
Other Thoughts: I only started playing about 3 or 4 months ago, but this course is home, I love it. I originally thought WSU was the only course in town, but quickly learned otherwise. As a newbie I decided to test the waters and entered the Bad Monkey Open, had a blast and was treated well by the "hardcore" crowd. Love this place and play there as much as I can. Although, is hole 10 Really a par 3? That thing is long.

Best Course in SW Washington
Pros: Gorgeous course, with an excellent layout and great variety of holes. From technical doglegs and elevation changes. A lil bit of water, long open field bombs. They have it all.
You will use nearly every disc in your bag here.
It's a public park. The grass, brush, branches, and trees are all trimmed, pruned, cut and maitained by the city. The park facilities are also maintained fairly well.
Concrete teepads that are all fairly uniform in length and width.
Great baskets and multiple pin locations that are changed throughout the year just add to the variety.
There's a great base of regulars and league players who observe etiquette follow rules and are generally helpful to newer and less experienced players.
Difficult to lose a disc here, but definetely not impossible.
Cons: Doesn't flow particularly well, with a decent bit of walking in between some holes and the next teepad.
Can get really crowded with non-Frolfers on nice days, Picnickers in fairways, bikers, walkers, joggers.
Can get really crowded with Frolfers on nice days as well.
Large population of homeless they are all fairly harmless just weird. Not to mention they've started combing the creek and surrounding areas for discs that they like to sell/trade for cash, beer or w**d. So don't lose a disc, chances are the homeless will get to it before someone who might actually call you would.
As a whole the leaguers and regulars are all very nice, but there's a select few that are elitist jerks i.e. I regularly play in a group of 3-4, however the leaguers commonly play in groups of 6-8, on the right day groups of 10+ are common. If you ask to play through or even play with in hopes of speeding up your round "Sorry Bro, this is a league game you're just going to have to wait" Is a fairly common answer. But like I said 95% of them are good dudes.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is an excellent course and I'd rate it as one of the Top-5 courses in the Southwest Washington/Portland Metro Area.
It's my 2nd favorite behind Pier Park, If you consider yourself an intermediate or even advanced player this a great course for you.
Edit: As of 6/27/10 the baskets have been moved back to their original, more challenging locations.

Vancouvers best disc course
Pros: Variety of different shots(each hole is unique.)
Elevation and hazard challenges.
Most all players I've met are encouraging and positive.
Great for begginers and big parties(If you let faster groups play through.)
Lots of birdie shots.
Just off I5. easy to get to from anywhere.
Nice use of the parks natural layout.
Great signs at each tee.
Trash cans located troughout course.
Cons: Sometimes large parties of people will use the field on holes 6 and 7( which you'll have to skip)
First timers might have a hard time navigating between tees 5 and 6. and 10 and 11.
Sometimes the 1 bathroom is locked.
Hole 4 is really muddy on wetter days.
I always find water on hole 9. But Ive always been able to fish out my discs.
Holes are kind of short. 1,3,6 and 10 are the only holes that you can bomb it. and 6 and 10 are questionable for people who can really throw.
Crowded on nice days, the early bird gets the worm.
Pathways can get busy with pedestrians, so be curtious and yell fore.
Other Thoughts: Leverich park is extremely fun for any type of player and is easy to find. They have made very good use of the land for this disc golf course. This is my home coarse and I have played with parties of 2 people to parties of 8 people and had a tremendous time. Its lush foresty surroundings mixed with an abundance of local plantlife make this course a great way to wind down or start your day. It is medicinal to play disc golf at leverich.

Pros: Good course!
Good directional singes!!
Cons: Short holes.Need more holes
Other Thoughts: This was a nice addition to Vancouver. There are a few ether parks in the area that don't get used much and this would draw them in

Pros: Well made course for what space was available.
Easy to get to, very close to I-5.
Lots of elevation changes.
Holes for both left and right handed throwers.
Maps and score cards are available at hole 1.
Cons: For me it was the creek, one disc in the drink twice, and lost one disc on the other side of the creek in the brushes.
Natural tees could get a lot muddier as the weather turns worse.
Other Thoughts: This is my first review of a course.
I feel that for the first course in the city limits it's a very great course for Vancouver.
This course has become very popular in just a short time it has been installed.
