Pros: - Great for beginers and kids allmost all the holes are short and straight ahead.
- Right next to the river
- Bridges add some interesting visual aspects to the course
- Some of the first and last holes play through some nice shortly cut grass
- Lots of chances for aces
- Free to play
- Some wooded holes and some that are wide open
- Prety easy to find your way around on
- Close to major freeways, easy to find and quick to play make it a good stop off for people on the I-5 or 199.
- Most of the course could be played with a putter and a Roc
- Playground onsite for the kids if they arn't into disc golf. (and they were smart enough to not put any holes neer it)
- The white color of the baskets made them easy to see
Cons: - Holes are allmost too short. I was having trouble not over throwing hole 1 with my putters.
- Only 9 holes
- Some holes play on the other side of the road causing only a slight bit of navigation issues
- Most holes are straight ahead without alot of variation
- Homless people sleeping next to hole 8, with others asking me for money around the course
- Baskets are homemade and felt like they were a little narrow and seemed to spit out alot
- Teepads are rubber and some are prety uneven
- Crowded, lots of people playing on the Friday afternoon that I was there.
- No real teesigns, though they arn't realy needed as most holes you can see the basket from the tee
- A badly shanked drive on hole 2 could end up in the river
Other Thoughts: I think alot of the previous reviews on here were from before the redisign as they seem to be quite off from how the course was when I was there.

It seems like a good course to take the kiddies or your girlfriend that is just learning how to play to so they can learn to play without feeling overwhelmed. It is definatly not a course for advanced or pro players to do anything but practice their putting. If your looking for a course to play in the area, and can only play one I would recomend skiping this one and going to Tom Pierce Park.

Pros: Small little local park course in the middle of town that is free to play.
The locals are pretty mellow and friendly(especially the guys on the edge of the fairway on hole 4 giving the lighter a workout) .
Cons: Very small - 5 holes are all on an empty lot next to the park.
Very crowded - must be the entire class of 2011 from Grants Pass High hanging out there that afternoon.
Other Thoughts: Even though it is a small and crowded course it's still worth a round if in the area. Hole 4 by itself is woth the time. 315 ft next to the Rogue River and under the 6th St bridge. The locals even though crowding the course are still cool. Especially the Centrum Silver gang that let me play through and followed along in their electric scooters. Very cool guys!

Pros: This is a city park so access is free. The scenery is also breath taking. And a couple holes do pose some minor challenges but over all it is a beginner level course.
Cons: While the layout is straight forward it doesn't make much sense. Hole 1's tee is place with a tree in a right-hand person swing/throw line. So unless you throw perfectly straight, you hit the tree every time. From there, everything goes fairly smoothly until you get to holes 8 and 9. While there is nothing wrong with hole 8 the trek from 8 to 9 is ridiculously long and in addition hole 9 is almost unplayable, playable if you want to risk loosing between 10 and 16 dollars per disc. In addition, there is no direct path to tee 9, you also have risk falling on your butt to get to it. This course isn't long enough to be tournament regulation size for 9 hole course.
Other Thoughts: Most people replay hole 3 as hole 9. On another note, this is not the original layout for this course. The original layout while heavily wooded which made it challenging on many holes but was also a 9 hole tournament regulation size course. At current this course doesn't even equal beginner regulation distance which is 2010ft. The city changed the course because of the concerts in the park which ironically no longer happen or happen on rare occasions. By comparison, this course is a joke. However if you're just starting out, I do recommend Holes 1 through 8.
