Watch that one...
Pros: -Concrete pads
-Both manicured, grassy fairways and rustic, natural terrain
-Elevation. This course uses what is has to the fullest extent. Hole 2 is a fun one with a touch of elevation loss across a large grassy bowl. Some radically uphill (and often blind) drives and one or two in which the elevation loss makes the thrower toy with the idea of discing down.
-Risk. A few holes play along a creekbed that is THICK with stinging nettle and other nasty plants and disc golfer-eating flies. Lots of places to lose plastic, even with a good drive.
-Plenty of parking
-Restrooms right by tee 1
Cons: -Lack of signage. I couldn't imagine navigating this course without a guide. A few blind baskets compound the issue.
-Weedy fairways. In the name of all things holy, get the local club together and a few weed-wackers and take care of that waist-high underbrush.
-18 holes playing to 16 baskets.
Other Thoughts: Neat layout requiring lots of three-dimensional planning. Friendly locals. Overall a fun course, but the constant searching for drives got old quick. I played with guides and I suggest you do the same as hole and course maps are hard to find (as are discs. Use spotters;)).
I found Bicentennial to be a great Provo option. It requires a lot of thought and has space to open up and rip it.

Pros: Large concrete tee pads with semi-circle ends, multiple pin locations, Course layout consist of long open drives, lots of elevation changes, mandos, water hazards and blind pin placements. Holes #1 thru 3 and #13 thru 16 are maintained, Restrooms next to hole #1 with playground, BBQ, Gazebo and Volleyball court. Very clean with a friendly crowd.
Cons: Tee signs are non existent or hard to read and some baskets are barely visible from tees, because of this and no pin locator on the tee signs navigating this course can be a chore. The underbrush on holes# 4 thru 12 is not maintained. Those shrubs near hole #7 basket can cut you up, stay away!!
Other Thoughts: I personally loved this course and feel it is under rated. It's a city park that sits on the foothills of the Wasatch Mountain range towering over. I think the original design was a nine hole course then they added the back. The first part of the course starts out with holes #1 thru 3 inside the maintained park area then leaves the park setting on holes #4 thru 12, this has overgrown grass and underbrush.Then drops back in on hole #13 thru 16.This course usually gets played during the day by beginners and the more experienced come out in the afternoon. The newbie's will usually stay in the park and not venture out and end up playing the original nine holes. There is little course etiquette inside the park with the families and beginners. The park keeps clean with the help of volunteers from the local churches. The water hazard on hole # 15 is barely noticeable but it is there directly behind the basket, don't over shoot. The layout has 16 holes plus two additional safari holes; Hole #1 tee to #3 basket and Hole #3 tee to hole #16 basket making it a complete 18. Simple next tee signs would help navigation here.
UPDATE: Baskets on the backside have been removed. Now the course has ten baskets.

Pros: Good mixture between Park and Mountain side.
Trees are basically the only hazards, except the few times that going between power poles in a mando!
Varying holes of distance, elevation, and hazards creates unique course with well placed holes.
Holes and pads for most part are in great condition.
Cons: Without our own map would have gotten lost, poorly marked.
The mountain side could be kept up a little better and guide players thru course better.
Other Thoughts: Good people up there, left my Firebird at practice basket (or 18 it depends) n got called within half hour.

Two Distinct Courses!
Pros: Part of the course lies in a nice city type park. Many are wide open throws without any special challenges involved. Other holes were in a brown, ugly, poorly marked area.
Cons: I didn't like the brown, savannah like area much. It wasn't marked real well. We somehow managed to miss four holes.
Other Thoughts: It's the best option if you live in Provo. Worth the time if you driving through.

My Home Course
Pros: Nice open spaces for beginners. Alternate pin placements allow varied challenges. Baskets are good quality. Course not too crowded.
Cons: Advanced players may want more shots that require accuracy. Locals sometimes ignorant of dg course. Mosquito repellent a good idea if you don't have accuracy to keep out of treelines.
Other Thoughts: Good family atmosphere with playground nearby.
I felt it necessary to update my rating and drop it due to losing so many baskets.

Good for beginners
Pros: course flow is a little better than good, alternate pin placements for changes month to month. concrete teepads for when its muddy/snowy. will challenge the intermediate and advanced players mostly, some pro level shots but not many.
Cons: not for pro level disc golf. course is not completely manicured, becomes rough in late summer. since its a beginner course mostly, disc golf etiquette is lacking.
Other Thoughts: a great course for introducing disc golf to the public. amenities for alternate activities is adequate and doesnt infringe on each other, for the most part.
