"Placing a basket in the hardest position doesn’t make a good course. Well thought lines and smart basket positioning does. The last 9 made up for the first 18. It was well designed with a mix of technical short and long holes. The first 18 had unnecessary challenges; dangerous footing and unkept throwing lines. Multiple holes with no basket visibility and hard to find tees. Also be prepared for a hike."

"No running water or proper bathrooms. There is a practice putting area but no place to warm up drives or mids or approaches. Every hole has what feels like an unnecessarily long walk over terrane that can easily turn your ankles. Rocks on the paths will bruise your feet through your shoes. It's really hard to find the right tee pad to play next and it's confusing because several times the visible basket is not the one you are playing to. Makes for 6 hour tournament rounds."

"What can I say, there’s tons of baskets out on the course to keep it interesting, but the lines are close to impossible if you’re not familiar with the hardest basket locations. Basically dart golf placement shots the whole way. Turf tee boxes were a nice touch, but not very long. I’m a tall person so my run up are very long steps. Also, you need to be shape so families and beginners beware! 🤷‍♂️😆"

Between the deep grass fairways, the complete lack of guidance to get from basket to next tee, and the multiple blind tee shots; the course was by a good amount the least enjoyable round that we’ve attempted. The beauty made it worth the hike, but I almost wish I hadn’t brought the discs!"

Unfortunately after the first 9 or so holes the corse gets significantly more rugged and there was a basket missing on one hole. The corse lists on udisk are also confusing. There are several baskets on some of the holes that have varying distances and difficulty. Some baskets are difficult to find, but the signage on the corse will point you in the right direction. "

There were hardly any winds once you got in the canyon. Beautiful scenery. Lots of hiking, but so worth it. Great hanging baskets, great dropping drives, pretty technical, yet fun for beginners too. Hole 27 is amazing but spot your discs! Even with signage the tees can be hard to find. "

Hole 8 is tricky in it's current layout, it was hard to find the basket from the tee, or we just looked in the wrong direction. It would be nice to have an extra Porta Potty somewhere on the top of the plateau for the ladies, but this course is AWESOME! Come check it out if you haven't yet.

No, it doesn't have a bar in the middle of the course or or 4 other 18 hole courses on the same property, but this is one of those that deserves to be on the list that doesn't have the support of a massive community living nearby."

"The perfect course for masochists. Everyone keeps saying there’s lots of “elevation changes”… but 90% of those changes are UPHILL, and then the final 2 holes are downhill. I appreciate that courses need to exist for different skill levels and I don’t want them all to be easy, but this was the most difficult course I’ve ever played, and I didn’t even play the alternate 9 holes. Time to go home and die."
