Pros: -There's actually a course is DALLAS,OR (yet another sign of the imminent rise of this HIGHLY superior recreational past-time)
-Good Variety of Forehand/Backhand Shots
-Water hazards in the form of a river on the first two holes are within the nearby picture forcing you to focus more so than otherwise
-Above average utilization of given elevation on several holes (5&7 come to mind)
-Park is in a small town, thus minimizing the crowding of non-disc golfers
-The small town (Dallas) isn't far from other more sizable Willamette Valley population centers.
-With that being said, it's not that far from other great courses associated with these larger cities (i.e. Adair, Woodsmansee, Willamette Park etc.)
-Quality baskets
-At least when I was there, the local non disc-golfing citizens seemed pleasantly curious and supportive of this new "phenomenon" as opposed to the annoyed demeanor of citizens in other mixed use city park settings.
Cons: -Natural tee pads are usually fine in the drier third of the year in this region of the state, but for the math-challenged, that leaves 2/3 of the year with muddy as sh@t tee pads to work with.
-Course flow was a little helter skelter for a few holes (2-3-4), but then again the park WAS built long before the words disc and golf were associated with each other...bring a map!
-blackberry thickets are prevalent on several holes. A spotter might be necessary on hole 5, even though it's only 200 ft. I lost my brand new wraith on that one.
Hole 8&9 are flat open field holes with little to no obstruction.
Other Thoughts: I drove up after playing Adair with intent to just simply "bag" what I anticipated to be a simple pitch and put 9-hole course. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the technical nature of some of the holes on this course. If I lived next door I would be thrilled to have this recent installment in my neighborhood.
