Day at the Resevoir
Pros: Great variety of shots.
Fairways are kept clear.
every hole is a different and unique line. Hole 2 is one of my favorites.
New baskets are easy to spot, I have found they are less receptive to discs slightly off center than the old ones though, so aim well.
I love the challenge of getting par on some of the shots, The Jail and the hole following it are good examples. Really makes you feel accomplished if you pull it off.
Alternate pin placement, changes almost weekly. usually has a magnet indicating A or B on it.
I love some of the uphill shots such as stairway to eleven, and the downhill shots make you feel like you can throw for days.
Cons: Hole 17 Eats discs, Caution. I have spent many a time searching for mine or a friends disc and have called at least another 10+ people when I found theirs.
Signs need some love as they didn't survive the winter well.
Some of the rough off the course is very hard to find a disc if you get off the course.
Other Thoughts: My home course, Play here about once a week and love it.

Pros: Large concrete tees. Nice elevation changes. Not overly crowded with people. Nice variety of open holes and wooded holes. Nice variety of distances. Well kept course. A map of the course. (I got it at the rv park across the street).
Cons: Most of the holes lack hole signs. (The ones that did have them were pretty nice though). The course was a bit muddy. It is probably much drier during the summer.
Other Thoughts: Maybe proves a bit challenging for newer players. Some holes are a little too long. All in all a great course. Would I play it again? Yes

Pros: -Nice long tee pads
-Mach III baskets
-Some holes had sweepers to sweep off tee pads
-Plenty of trash cans
-Beautiful area, with fishing a swimming just a few feet away.
-Nice picnic area for the rest of family
-Tee signs are great, hole names are original.
-Well upkept state park
-No fee to play!
-Multiple pin locations
Cons: -Gets really muddy in winter
-Although tee signs are great, they are not utilized properly. Having to walk the fairways to figure out where the pin location in for over half the holes was extremely frustrating.
-Can get crowded
-Not beginner friendly
Other Thoughts: This course is a great course. First hole you get up to tee pad and get to throw a bomb down towards the lake. Hole 2, if you don't know the course, you'll think the basket your throwing to is the one in your line of sight. It is not. It is a sharp dogleg right into the trees. The one thing that I didn't like about this course was that the Tee signs did not show which location the pin was actually in. There was a place on the tee sign that you COULD show where, but it was not being used properly. Course is very tight in some spots. I wish I lived closer to this course because playing this course regularly would make me better. A lot better, actually. All in all, one of my favorite spots in Oregon.

Pros: super fun 400' downhill bombers. brutally steep uphill shots with tons of trees. technical lefts and rights. shooting up the gut of the parthenon. farmer's market with music on sundays in the summer.
Cons: watch out for that pesky ninja tree! it'll get you every time.
Other Thoughts: holes that make par seem like a great accomplishment: 6, 7 long, 18.
Dexter got gutted a number of years ago and is a lot less punishing for errant drives, and also opened up some new lines.

-Dexter Park makes a beautiful lush setting for this excellent Disc Golf course.
-It has a challenging variety of shots with uphill, downhill, flat, open, wooded, short and long holes. LHBH/RHBH balanced with a strong emphasis on technical/gap shots.
-The course has multiple pin placements.
-Dexter has good signage complete with pin signifiers, distance and hole names.
-Course has good teepads: flat, level, long and wide.
-There is a good amount of parking in the parking lot.
-They have made good use of stairs on hills to prevent slippage as it can get very muddy at Dexter.
-I love how many benches are at this course. Most holes have two benches and they're long with plenty of room to keep bags out of the mud.
-The course has good flow without hold ups.
-A nice lake behind hole one and eighteen.
-It's not always obvious where to go after holing out. Sometimes there are multiple tees near a basket and the further tee is the next tee which leads to confusion.
-Holes one and eighteen are pretty boring in that they both are long with no trees or hazards to worry about.
-Not much food in this area so pack a lunch if you're planing to make a day of it.
-The course gets pretty muddy so it's a good idea to bring lots of rags and wear shoes with good tread.

Good all around
Pros: Used every shot, nice park, good challenges, great tee pads, decent signage, benches, shade, clean.
Cons: "Next tee this way" signs would be helpful. Sometimes baskets were tough to see from tee pad.
Other Thoughts: Very nice course. Kind of off the beaten path, but worth the drive from Eugene. Local farmer's market on Sundays was a nice bonus.

Other Thoughts: Take care of your trash!

Pros: Course has it all. Ammenities to Technical hard throws you are in love with this course from the second you see the lake
What do you want in a course? More than likely this place has some of what you love about disc golf.
Other Thoughts: You have to make the trip for this experience. Even the birdie distance holes have a challenging shot.

A mini Tahoe paridise
Pros: -Concrete tee pads
-easy well maintained pathways
-Easy hole to hole following.
-many elevation changes
-great mix of heavey, moderate,mild woods
-a few distance shots to air out big guns
-not a lot of bugs
-pedestrians are out of the way
-proper trash cans and double bonus plus for reduce, reuse, recycle. Way to take care of the woods.
-no build up on pads for Oregon course due to rain, well traveled
-plenty of parking and easy to find tee 1 and kiosk is maintained
-good mix of fairway ceiling heights from open to low of 20 feet. great to challange you to throw low and flat or SS super straight.
-good use of A and B pin variation from left to right sides switching the players strengths
Cons: -Scorecards would of been nice but that would of made the course a five. Maybe the league could do a seperate tourny just to keep them provided
-I would like to see a pack it in, pack it out at tee one to encourage discers to continue to keep it clean.
Other Thoughts: I'm placing this in the top three of Oregon at number 3 behind Milo and Hornings. Dont miss this one!

Pros: - Scenery is amazing. From gently rolling hills to deep forests, this is by far the most scenic course I've ever played. It's also on a lot of acreage, which makes just walking this course an adventure.
- Detailed signs and humorous names for each hole make navigating the course much easier and more entertaining.
- Rich variety of elevation changes and forest shots
- A huge challenge for newer players, but it is doable if you partner up with a more experienced person.
- While this course is difficult, it isn't impossibly hard; if you hit your lines well you will be well rewarded.
Cons: - Lots of people. Even with how sprawled out the course is, you still rarely feel like you're alone.
- The walk up to hole 11 crosses the 18th fairway.
- Poison oak
- I didn't find any drinking water on the course; be sure to bring enough.
Other Thoughts: Gold tee destination course. Incredible layout and scenery. 'Nuff said.
Definitely worth a look if you're an out-of-towner, and a worthwhile four-hour expedition if you're a local. Bring a picnic and make an afternoon out of it; rushing through this course is not a good option.
