Gem in Granite Falls
Pros: Great Signage
Great location by the River
Shelter and Port-a-Potty Available
The shots are fun.
Cons: Short Holes, but a verity of different lengths and forced throwing lanes keeps it fun.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun recreational course
It is worth a stop to check it out, and play a couple rounds
There is a nice active local club that supports the course
If you like to try for aces at different courses this is your stop.

Nice New River Park
Pros: -Nice new concrete tees
-Signs are helpful and layout is good. Only lapse in layout is after hole one when you have to walk past the shelter to get to hole 2s tee. I like this better than trying to fit in a hole too close to the shelter.
-Map at start with scorecards and pencils in a water-proof container
-Lots of other things to do here; fishing, playground, skate park, path, picnic shelter
-A decent variety of distances. Many are short ace runs but a few are in the mid-300s. Some holes require left turns and some right. All have some kind of obstacle to avoid.
-A little elevation change.
-Cool walking bridge right next to hole 1
-Great for beginners and kids
Cons: -Not a ton of distance variation or challenge. This is a good beginners course for a small town.
-Not a ton of trees
-Could maybe lose a disc in some of the vegetation along the right side of the course on the back half.
Other Thoughts: I stopped at the shop across the walking bridge upon recommendation of the scorecard. Just walking across the bridge was good and the shop had a decent selection of discs. Some were very poorly priced and some were near the best prices I have ever seen. Some champion was 20 and others were 10. Some dx was 6.50 and others were 10. You could get a nice deal here if you find the right disc. The lady working the store told me that plans are being made for another course down the river at a campground that could have as many as 36 holes.
I think this course is worth a stop. It is in a very pleasant park and you have a few ace runs. It should get better with age.

Up and back
Pros: Decent baskets and concrete tee pads.
Tee pads are marked with the number for the corresponding hole. Some technical shots. Very quick play! Pretty good flow to the course.
Cons: No tee signs with distance or pars. Very short. Some shots fairly open.
Other Thoughts: The course runs up and back along the river. It would take a very errant throw to lose a disc in the river. This is a good beginner/rec course to learn the game. Three of us throwing two discs each finished the course in less than 30 minutes. My grandson threw a round of 23 with one of his discs.
