Pros: I like this course, it's great for beginners that would like to work on there shots. Good tech when you have to shot though or around trees. Well maintained course.
Cons: There is people sitting and walking through the course. You will have to watch your shots. I wish it was an 18 hole course.
Other Thoughts: When I went it wasn't to busy, I had the course to myself. Your will have to pay for parking or UTA in. In which would be good, because the light rail drops off just right above the course. Print out a map it will help to get around the course.
I give this course a 2.75 I will play this course again.
Lots of pars and great chances of birdies.

Pros: * Well maintained grass. You never have to search for a disc.
* Cement pads, tee signs and Baskets
* Short technical routes, with just enough variety.
* Trees for obstacles and shade, minor elevation changes.
*Beginner Course
Cons: * Very short, there isn't a single hole really where you can let loose. Beginner Course
* Most holes favor anhyzer or a forehand approach.
* It's almost always busy. There are also people walking down from the train station across the field. You also have the train tracks and multiple parking lots that border it. An errant throw can end up on the tracks or hitting a car.
Other Thoughts: I personally love this course. It's only 9 holes now, but it's very clean and well maintained. There are no big shots, it's all technical and short. You can play it quick and it's easy to get there. You can also play all 9 twice for a full 18. There are other courses around that are more challenging, but this is a great way to mix it up!

Pros: - Lovely setting
- Good tees, baskets & signs
- Easy to follow
- Good mix of BH & FH shots
- Good use of trees and elevation
Cons: - Parking can be hard
- Can be crowded with non-playing students walking through
Other Thoughts: I really enjoy this course as a newish player and can use it to get quick rounds in when I come down from Park City. It challenges me with the mix of shots but not so hard I get frustrated. Overall my favorite course in SLC

Pros: This amazing little piece of land was once a nine hole golf course but has now been turned over for disc golf. And what a tremendous gift it has been for the University of Utah students. The terrain is just about perfect for disc golf. It's rolling hills with lush green grass. The course plays as an easy recreational level, making it my opinion, just a perfect little throw for the students here.

The online map I had printed had this listed as an 18 hole course when in actuality it is a 9 hole set-up. It has concrete pads. There are some DGA baskets and some other types of baskets. There are no filler holes here. Each hole offers some challenge or creativity, or the chance for that ACE, something to keep you entertained. Mostly it's just fun, easy entertainment. perfect for the college crowd.

# 4 is a fun throw to a basket partially buried down in some bushes. It features multiple routes. # 7 is an open ACE run downhill while # 9 is a slightly longer ACE (280') coming down the hill and back to the course sign.
Cons: I don't see much wrong with this course.

it's short. It's a rec course.

Parking is probably an issue. I see another reviewer took the train in-Good idea. I parked in the lot across the street. The Special Olympics were going on. figured that I was OK parking during that event.
Other Thoughts: The course was filled with players the afternoon I played. These players aren't advanced/pro players looking for that kind of a challenge. Most of them were not students. They were just regular disc golfers out enjoying the beautiful fall weather and the wonderful little course here.

Pros: Nice long concrete tees. Good hole signs with only one missing. Good variety of trees and hills for a nine hole city course. Practice basket.
Cons: It was probably a little short. Could have used more hills and trees.
Other Thoughts: Kind of just a disc golf course. Nothing special and nothing horrible. It says it is private but you can play there if you either park away or pay the meter in the few spots available.

 Good Practice Course

Pros: -Easy to find and navigate from one hole to another.
-Good course to practice on because it has basic difficulties with trees as obstacles.
-Has cement tee pads for all holes and holes are all marked.
Cons: -Right by a commuter train stop, so every 7-10 minutes people flood the park from the train so you have to stop throwing while they clear out.
-No long holes, all par three short holes.
Other Thoughts: Like the title says, a good place to go and to just practice with the short game. Not hugely difficult but holes are well placed to make trees good obstacles.

 Fun Little Course

Pros: In times past I have ventured onto college courses. With soaring hopes for a thrilling round of disc golf I stepped onto the campuses only to discover that the courses were about as exciting as watching Old Yeller. Yes, I wanted to cry come the end of the round of golf too.

But the University of Utah course looked so promising. I poured through the reviews to see what would warrant such a high rating for a little 9-hole course on a campus too, and was dismayed to discover that it used to be an 18-hole course, and got great reviews for that, but not so great since it was cut in half.

So I decided to throw caution to the wind, donned my favorite BYU shirt which I quickly covered with a neutral black jacket, (only because it was chilly today, of course. I wasn't worried about losing my life in the least, I mean, UofU students are known for being upstanding good sports to BYU fans, after all), and headed over to the course.

Much to my amazement Utah did a decent job on it! I didn't see any drug dealers, devil worshipers or prostitutes, all the things I'd been warned about having to wade through if I ventured up there by all the BYU people who were praying for my safe return! I didn't step on a single dirty needle or get mugged!

The course was actually pretty good too! I mean, it's small and short, which is exactly what you would expect from Utah, but it did a fantastic job of using the terrain and obstacles.
Cons: For all the props I have to give to the University for the course, it is not without it's faults, which I'm sure no self-respecting Utah fan would want to admit to.

The parking was just fine for me because it was a weekend, but otherwise it would be horrid to try to park. You could ride Trax up there though, since there is a stop just above the course and a nice little path THAT GOES RIGHT THROUGH THE COURSE! But if you're looking for moving targets then playing this course during the week would certainly offer you plenty. I probably wouldn't go doing that while wearing my BYU shirt though, as that would not be a very good representation of the amazing love and sportsmanship that people supporting that school are known for.
Other Thoughts: What I thought would be an easy course to just run right over the top of proved to be far more than I expected. I was reminded of other times Utah was underestimated, and after weeping for a moment at that recollection, I promptly drove down to Provo to play the course on the BYU campus.

"There isn't a course on the BYU campus" you say? Well I made one! And it's awesome!

Pros: - Course is set in a smaller park section of the university. Doesn't seem like much else is going on here, so there shouldn't be much chance for interference.
- Decent amount of trees incorporated into the hole designs, mostly wide bushy pine trees that take up a lot of real estate. Definitely forces line shaping to stay clear of rough recovery shots. #1 is a big anny or hyzer around these trees, #2 and #3 are blind RHFH shots around the trees, #6's basket is within a ring of tree trunks, and others have bushes placed here and there. Both left and right curving shots help in getting birdies.
- Some minor elevation changes help spice the course up; half of the holes are slightly downhill, and a couple others are slightly uphill. #3's basket is on a small mound as well.
- OK variety in hole lengths, though the course is pretty short on average. A few holes over 300', and only one under 249'. Nothing exciting for the big arms, pretty fair rec level distances.
- Nice pads, signs, and baskets. Practice basket as well.
Cons: - Plenty of holes with open lanes here, making sure you don't land in a bush being the major concern on over half the holes. #7 is wide open, and #8 and #9 only have one bush and tree respectively.
- Again, a tad bit on the short side for bigger arms with an average hole length of 272'.
Other Thoughts: - Great course for beginners to learn the basics of a couple different shots, and not too shabby for intermediate players to enjoy a relaxing round. Nothing too difficult, but still offers chances to bogey. Too bad the back 9 were removed; more is always better.

Hard to lose a disc
Nice mix of shots
Great tee pads
Not too crowded
Cons: Only 9 holes
