Better Than Most in the Area

Pros: Smallish course that can be played in 30-45 minutes.
Shorter holes make it a good beginners course.
Easy to get to, just off of the main road.
Has a bathroom.
Clean
Interesting holes for the size allocated
Good for practicing obstructed shots
Cons: The course is covered in piņon trees. That makes finding the baskets on your first trip a bit challenging.
Nearly every shot is obstructed.
The trees can sometimes make your disc hard to find.
Other Thoughts: It is embarrassing to say, but this course is in better shape than any within the city limits of Santa Fe. You would think such an affluent city could do better. It was a welcome respite from the run down courses there.
The two shots off of the cliffs are very cool. That course is in a park but none of the shots are interfered with by pedestrians or playgrounds. You would have to toss a very errant disc to hit someone. The trees can be a hassled. I like an obstruction here and there, but this course has too many. It is good for learning to navigate around obstructions. If you are from out of state, this is a high altitude course, you will notice the thinner air, and your discs will fly a little different. It is also close to the course in Los Alamos so you could play both in the same day.

Pros: Beautiful setting that makes you feel very secluded.
Top quality baskets and tees.
Unique trees, yet very little brush; although you may not always see where your disc lands, it would be rare to lose one here.
Great variety and use of elevation.
Cons: Challenging to find the baskets on your first time here.
No tee signs (as of 4/2/17.)
You need to watch your footing as many of the hikes between holes have loose chunks of rock.
Other Thoughts: This is a well designed course, to make use of the small strip of land available. Some holes are very hard to locate, but after playing a few times, they would all be reachable. There are a couple of picturesque ace runs, but most shots are blind, due to the tall bushes/trees that dominate this landscape. This course is rare because it is only nine holes, but was designed for the more advanced disc golfer. If you get the chance to come to White Rock, you won't be disappointed. Also, check out the spot in town called "the overlook." Only 5 minutes out of the way, with sweeping views of the Rio Grande and the surrounding mesas.

I will play this course again.

 Juniper trees are tough

Pros: Nice use of small mesa for elevation shots. My favorite holes were the two from top of mesa down.
Cons: Some holes have no clear path to basket. IMO, this course needs some chainsaw work to open up some fairways. Juniper trees are difficult obstacles because they are impossible to throw thru, so the only option is to throw over which is awkward.
Other Thoughts: My nephew said he helped build this course for someone's Eagle Scott project. I didn't get his name, but invite him to add details to the course description that I didn't know. I was happy to see another course in Los Alamos area, but I wouldn't have known about it without my nephew telling me, so I added the course to this Website. The next course should be at camp may, or some where in the Jemez amongst the big ponderosa and aspen trees, could be the best course in NM.
