 Great course

Pros: Great for beginners, fun for the more seasoned.
Diverse holes, down hill, up hill, hyzer, anhyzer you name it. Shorter holes good for beginners to gain confidence and become more familier with their drives.
Cons: Often muddy. The park can be crowded at times and due to the fact that the course overlaps quite a bit, this can be a problem.
Other Thoughts: Look out for the creek running down the middle, I've found lost discs more often than not in the murky water.

Update: Visited Oregon over Christmas(2013) and had a blast playing the courses around here. Herbert Hoover will always be a favorite.
I take my in-laws, who don't play unless I take them, this is one of their favorite courses as well.

Pros: -Lots of up and down/ creative holes.
-9 holes takes about 20 minutes to play.
-several hole in one opportunities.
-great for beginners.
Cons: -Very muddy in the winter.
-Friendly park=lots of pedestrians.
-hole #5 is a disc eater I recommend having a friend stay at bottom of hill to make sure you know where your disc lands.
Other Thoughts: Love playing it also if your going to play there you might as well play Shampoeg park course 5 miles out towards St. Paul.

 Fun little course for newer players

Pros: It keeps things interesting, that's for sure!
Lots of elevation changes
Hole three's hard right cut and a few other variations force newer players to think differently.
Quick, easy, and good times!
Cons: Poorly marked directions, and due to the condensed course, it's easy to get lost/confused.
Tee's aren't numbered, Baskets are numbered but often too far to see.
Other Thoughts: It can get muddy and swampy. I went after it had been raining a bunch though, so it's to be expected I suppose.

Grab a local if you can. Some places will just have you wondering what's going on, and if you're throwing at the wrong baskes or what...

 The place for your ACE

Pros: Well maintained, good equipement and tees, easy to navigate, lots of little trick shots, and a play ground is a great place to occupy the wife and kids while you play a quick 9. I love that it is right ON 99w as you go thru town. Great place to stop on your way to or from the coast.
Cons: Because it is a smaller park you do tend to be in closer proximity to the folks using the walking trails and such. But it is only a minor inconvienence. The other side effect of the small size of the park is the length of the holes. They are all pretty short. All par 3s but easily birdied by most experienced players.
Other Thoughts: If you haven't gotten an ACE yet, play here! Of the 9 holes all but one (imo) are good candidates (#7). Can be a great warm up course if you plan on hitting Ewing Young next.

Pros: very nice small park course.
Has nice elevation and trees to make you think about your shots.
The creek that flows through also make you think about your shot
Cons: MUD. Lot of it and it is every where.
small unflat tee pads that are very muddy.
Other Thoughts: This will be an very cool course when it dries out in the 2 or so dry months of the year here in the nw. The rest it will be muddy and so be prepared to wipe your disc alot.

 Awesome 9 hole

Pros: One of the best nine hole courses i have ever been to. The course is well thought out with many hillside changes making it a skilled course.
Cons: You could probably birdie most pins with practice because the course is compact.
Other Thoughts: There is a creek going through the park so make sure your drives go straight. It isn't that deep but, you can't see through it.
