Pros: -The location/scenery will be great once/if this course gets its legs under it
-Not too difficult to find
-Large enough area that the course could have promise
-Nice view of the valley/Utah Lake when you're on the mountainside
Cons: -Parking close to the course (legally) is impossible. The neighborhoods leading to the course have "no parking except by permit" signs EVERYWHERE. The closest you could park without getting a ticket is near 7 peaks in an abandoned parking lot, approx. 2-3 blocks away
-We found a course map online that was from some tourney that was held there, it appears that the baskets have been moved or stolen because we could only find one basket. We walked North and South on the main two trails for almost 45 minutes and only found the one hole.
-Its been a cool and wet Spring so the vegetation was out of control. I'm 6'4" and most of the grass/weeds were at or above my waist when we went off-trail to try and find a basket.
-It doesn't appear anyone has done any upkeep on this course in quite a while
-Its in Provo......the best part was leaving ;)
Other Thoughts: Since this course is young and maintained by volunteers I can understand why the course is the way it is. It does have a lot of potential because of its location on the mountain side and the wide open areas. A nice lady from the neighborhood helped point us in the right direction and assured us that the "No Trespassing" signs were only put there to keep vehicles from driving up the trail. We only found one basket in 45 minutes. Maybe the course map we had was inaccurate, but we couldn't find anything. The vegetation was out of control, but its a links style course so its hard to fault it too much for that.
I'd love to play this course and rate it again if the course is ever updated and developed a bit.

Pros: From walking around and trying to find holes, we played what we though we could find. Lots of variations on elevation and distance with trees to shoot around. At the base of the mountain and beautiful.
Cons: No map, signs or even rocks on the ground to help get started or even get to hole 2 (or others).
Other Thoughts: It would have been good to know from the driving directions that the sign at the dirt road says "Authorized Vehicles Only". Also it would have be good to have at least a picture of a napkin with the course layout or something so that people can follow the course. Even pictures added to the site so can try to find where to look next would have been nice. I will happily update my rating when there is a way to play the course as it was meant because it seems awesome.
