Great Family Friendly Course
Pros: Close to Hotels and VRBOs;
Adjacent to REI and Sports Warehouse;
Great place to throw new plastic before heading to the hills;
Family friendly, ADA friendly, Night Golf friendly;
Great place to practice throwing in the wind (afternoons);
Tons of prairie dogs and other small mammals;
Cool, clear, ankle deep marsh on the 11th hole;
Huge variety of native plants and grasses.
Cons: Course is still under construction.
11th hole swamp edges should be marked for OB purposes and to keep people from walking straight into a swamp hidden by tall grass;
you need to watch where you are going;
No benches or clearly defined bowl holes.
The average distance seems to be around 280 feet; perfect for intermediate players but it's not great for pros who want to practice pinpoint accuracy of drives over distances greater than 425 feet.
Trash and recycling bins are in. Groomed for the summer, I had no trouble following the paths around from tee to tee, even without a map. One of the organizations affiliated with this club is actively promoting disc golf as a new sport for Youth. See http://motodom.com/RosePark.html.
The Park is managed by the Gallatin Valley Land Trust and was established as an environmental mitigation of the subdivisions and shopping malls sprouting up over some of the most productive prairie. This course would be greatly improved by interpretive/informational nature signs and a bulletin board for posting messages and annoucements.
