Meadows in a mountain setting

Pros: -New concrete tee pads
-Beautiful scenery
-Great camping
-Perfect variety of short/long open/wooded holes
-Multiple tee pads on some holes for added variety
-Mowed fairways
Cons: -Tee sings need to be upgraded
-Course map by hole 1 would be good
-Holes 1 through 3 play next to a play ground and can be busy
Other Thoughts: I was really surprised by how fun this course is. The damaged tee signs and the busy holes 1-3 are the only thing taking away from this course. This is a really nice place to get away during the summer months. Its like a mini resort up here.

Variety of Holes

Pros: Concrete tee pads installed in 2016.
Some holes with denser tree, some wide open, some with only a couple of trees makes for a variety of holes.
Some holes play on grass, others on forest floors, others in fields.
Some holes are longer and others shorter. Most of the shorter holes have more trees.
Excellently tended fairways and beautiful canyon location.
Cons: Because the course plays near a playground and family campground, watch out for kids.
A couple holes play close to a barbed wire fence -- watch out. Although not frequent, some holes have places that are easy to lose discs.
There are a few longer walks between some holes and a couple holes play over each other.
No real elevation changes, despite being in a valley.
Other Thoughts: This course now has concrete tee pads. It's better to come here on a weekday, as there are sometimes campers or large parties on the weekends. That is, unless you are one of the campers.

Pros: Well designed 18 hole course, enjoyable for beginners and pros alike.
Good variety of hole distances, leaning a little on the shorter side.
4 or 5 wide open holes that let you bomb it over some grass.
4 or 5 holes that favor a RHFH throw.
3 or 4 wooded tunnel shots.
2 or 3 holes with a creek in play.
It might not compare to some of the premier courses around the country, but for Utah Valley this has become a go-to course.
Cons: 6/28/16- Update: concrete tee pads have been installed for almost every hole now making it much easier/safer to drive. A few more alternate tees would be nice.
Requires a little backtracking to get from Hole 3 to Hole 4, then again from 6 to 7. Easy to navigate otherwise.
4 and 7 don't get mowed as much so the weeds can be a nuisance if it's been awhile.
Other Thoughts: About 20 minute drive once you get off the freeway, just past the ball golf course.

Pros: The best 18 hole course around that I have played
a good variety of hole types
The park is very well kept and few people getting in the way.
Beautiful area, you are sitting in the canyon surrounded by mountains, which are beautiful.
Cons: Can be a bit of a drive up the canyon if you are not from the area.
It can be easy to get lost so take a picture of one of the signs by a hole so you don't get lost
Other Thoughts: Don't get lost, it's right at the fork just past the ball golf course.
Also had my best lucky 2nd shot ever on hole #1. After hitting a tree and coming up short on my first throw I thew a forehand that bounced into the basket!

Nice Green Park Course

Pros: Beautiful multi-use park in a canyon east of Springville. Much of the grass is irrigated and much of the course is lush and green.

Not much elevation change but a lot of trees (both newly planted and mature) and a pretty little creek running though the course. The creek is only in play on a couple of holes, and is shallow enough that losing a disc shouldn't be an issue.

This course offers a nice variety of holes from wide open drives over lawn to tight little wooded holes. Hole lengths vary from 182' to 570', with most in the 250' - 350' range. Several holes offer two tees or two basket placements.

Brand new tee pads and tee signs have been installed. Concrete pads are a good size with nice texture, and tee signs are a big improvement over the 2014 signs. They give distance, par, a nice hole map and the next tee arrow.

The first three holes play over a lawn area that surrounds a playground near the parking lot, making for an easy start. You then take a small bridge over the creek to play holes 4 - 7 which are in a rougher area of the park.

Hole 4 requires that you hit a tight gap right off of the tee, with Hole 5 driving to a basket that is guarded by trees and a "boneyard" of stumps, tree trunks, and some surplus pipe.

Hole 6 requires another tight drive to a basket near the creek. Holes 7 & 8 are the open, "air it out" holes, though rollers work as well.

Holes 9 - 17 play in a different area of the park that is across the access drive. These holes are interesting combinations of open ground and some tight little wooded holes.

Hole 16 takes advantage of a huge piece of pipe by requiring that you drive through it right off of the tee. Unique design feature that adds some fun to the hole.

Hole 18 is a nice finishing hole that requires a drive across the creek and back toward the parking lot. There is a shorter tee that gives a more open drive across the creek, and a "pro" tee that brings a couple of trees into play right off of the tee. Neither tee location creates a real difficulty with clearing the water.
Cons: When I most recently played on a Tuesday morning there were a bunch of huge sprinklers running. The baskets for Holes 3 and 18 were unusable as they were directly in the heavy spray of water. I guess that there is a reason for all of that lush green grass!!

I never saw restrooms or water fountains which surprised me as this looks like a busy family park. Perhaps I missed them.
Other Thoughts: I first played this course in September 2014 and liked it then. In August 2017 it is a much better course with new tees, signs, and a few new hole features. Upgraded from a rating of 3.0 to 4.0.

I played this course on weekday mornings and had it to myself. But with the playground, picnic tables and large mowed lawn I'd imagine that some holes would be unplayable on busy weekends or evenings. Especially the first three holes which circle a large playground area.

  Great Course

Review By: dblad
Played: 1  Reviewed: 1
Pros: Variety of holes: long, short, obstacles, open shots, landscaped grass, wooded areas, left curves, right curves, blind throws, etc...
Cons: Lack of maps. Make sure to take the course map with you. Picnickers and photo-taking groups are more abundant than other courses. Inconvenience caused by distance away from major cities.
Other Thoughts: Not too difficult for beginners, but still fun and challenging enough for more advanced disc golfers.

 Part park, part woods

Pros: 1) Nice diversity of holes
2) Some highly technical holes, some very forgiving, easy holes.
3) Nice baskets
Cons: 1) Some holes were not in an intuitive order - we played at least one hole out of order.
2) Signage is limited.
3) Some holes would be extremely difficult to play alone...blind tee shots.
Other Thoughts: I would hesitate to play this course alone. There are too many blind tee shots and too much brush and undergrowth on at least 4-5 holes, and the risk of losing discs, even for experienced players, is real.

The course is partially in a nicely manicured public park, and partially carved out of river bottom trees and brush. It's kind of schizophrenic that way. It lacks a cohesive flavor. Some people like that, some people don't.

 potential is there

Played: 33  Reviewed: 32
Pros: was playing this course after rim rock, brians head and Payson. the potential is for sure there, but may need some "more" something. given there were only one pin placement per hole, it would be awesome to know how far things were.
the grass tee-pads themselves were fine.
just rough not to know if one is throwing 265 or 315 on a drive.
bring a screen shot of the map!
the grass in AMAZING and greener than all get out.
we must have been there the day BEFORE the lawn was mowed. zero skips and hard to roll.
Cons: tee pads were fine, but so so. distance to basket?
baskets by playgrounds?

 3.75 out of 5?? nope..

Pros: I know this is going to be a vague and poor review, but I want to make sure people don't go out to this course thinking they're gonna play a 3.75/5 course.

Pretty setting, nice green grassy park
A few cool holes..maybe 1 over 400 feet.
Nice creek comes into play a little bit.
Cons: Terrible signage
No teepads
Sprinklers all over and near baskets spraying water on you while you putt
People who worked there didn't know anything about the course..Where is hole one? I don't know.
Boring holes for the most part
A little bit out of the way.
Other Thoughts: I don't want to sound like a jerk, but I just wish someone would have wrote this review before I went to the course.. I was disappointed that it didn't live up to the reviews.

Pros: Very fun medium to short course. Beautiful setting, light traffic. Some very technical shots. Not physically taxing.
Definitely worth a trip!
Cons: Needs signage and tee pads!
Took a few minutes to figure out the course layout. Not complex, but without tee pads some hole directions are a bit confusing since the baskets are hidden (5/6), (13/14). But not too tough to figure out.
Some holes are close to playground and foot traffic, nothing too disruptive.. just need to pay attention.
Other Thoughts: Take Exit is 260 not 263 as noted on directions! Get off exit, go east about 2-3 miles until you get to 1300 East (Canyon rd) , take a right go for a few miles past golf course, (stay right) you'll run into the park. Course starts at upper parking lot.
Print course map before you come!
Other than the signage and tee pads, this is a fun course that meanders around the park. If you're going to play Art Dye in American Fork, this is worth the extra 20 min drive for a fun, non crowded course.
