Front 9 reminds me of the Speeder Bike scene on Return Of The Jedi! New tee-pads make this course much more playable year around. If you have not been here in a long time, you should come back to see how much work has been done.

Front 9 is fairly technical for a beginner like me, narrow wooded drives with several angles of approach. Back 9 is more open & has several unique tee shots. It's a new course so I cant really complain about the foliage. Love how it feels like you're in the middle of the woods.

awesome improvements. the course is playing the best i've seen.

This course is awesome! I love the front 9 birdie time! Tightly wooded though so dont mess up, lots of vegetation, so keep an eye on your disc. The back 9; time to let her fly, alot longer and a couple of water shots makes for a great all around course, word is there are now tee pads! Great job CCDG, and to all the whiners about the vegetation and losing your discs, you should be able to watch your disc and have a general idea of where to look and if not, take it easy, or stopd drinking/ smoking so much lol

Good lines and lots of birds, use a spotter and you will have fun.

The course has improved a lot in the last year. A lot of love has gone into it and it's showing. Thanks to everyone that's involved. Hole 1s new position is way easier in my opinion than the spot on the hill. But hole 15 just got twice as ridiculous to make up for it. I mean, cmon.....really? 3 it and you'll feel very fortunate.

*UPDATE* This course has only gotten better. Concrete teepads and tee signs at every hole. Lots of brush has been removed. Very technical. Bring spotters. Great course. Caution: POISON OAK & STINGING NETTLES. No biggie though. Tough it out. New pin locations on #14 & #15 add even more distance.

Really enjoy this course. In the summer look out for poison oak. Two over water shots. 18 holes with great tee pads. Lots of variation. Not much elevation change.

ground cover is ubr tall but stil playable if your buddies keep eyes on the disc. course is well established now, new concrete T-pads, trails are easy to follow, clearing around pins is done...EVEN SOME OLD HOLES MADE BETTER, ENTIRLY NEW HOLES 17~18! perfect example of how course improvements can be made. I think this course doesn't get the credit it deserves. I personaly love this course and am amazed with the improvements done here thankyou. but the signage is just plain stupid!

Lots of Potential - Course needs major brush cutting and poison oak removal in some areas. Recommend spotters.
+1 votes Bill Harpster › December 26, 2011
Overall this is a great course needs some finish work done to it, but as you can see it will be challenging without a SPOTTER especially in the fall and winter months. Keep up the good work and finish this damn course already.

This is one of those "going to be a great course" someday courses. A course that's a lot like Bryant or Wilder, as it needs a lot of work all the time, to keep it from getting out of hand. I would really score higher with me if it was a little less blackberry, poison oak and scotch broom. Over all a really good layout with some tough holes.

They have been making some change to this course like moving holes 17 and 18 and with the use the course has been getting the holes are getting a little tamer. This is a blast one of my favorite courses.

Great variety of shots, some holes seemed too easy and unnecessary. Lots of blackberry and nettles. Basket for 18 was missing. Really fun course, great addition to the Salem scene.

This course seems to scare a lot of players away. Please do not place judgement until you give this course a go. I have a feeling you will like what you find in the forest! Rapids is my overall favorite 18 holes in the area, just for the added degree of difficulty. It's a very technical course with lots of obstacles, and the added thrill of a few holes at and a bit above 400'. The pads are concrete, Mach baskets, and beaten trails are all pluses in my book.

I suppose the only "downside" would be the heavy vegetation in the fairways, though you must realize the course is in the middle of a pacific rainforest. Anyway, this course gets a solid 'A' in my book!

Very good technical course, tough and will challenge you but, tons of great shots to be had, this is also a very hiking style course, so if you don't know how to spot poison oak and don't like searching off the beaten path for discs you might not like it. I love over water shots even if I did lose a disc playing. This was a lot better than some people have stated, only thing I'd like to see is maybe a bit more general mowing but I say that mostly cause it was raining and I was soaked to the knees

This course is not well taken care of, and is a mess in many areas. I am glad I played it the winter when most of the overgrowth is dormant.

Lots of poison oak!! Otherwise, not a bad course. Better than I had expected actually. Definitely some sketchy shots that would not be good for a beginner.

I only give this course a C (passing grade). It has nice tee pads but the course in my mind is a big mess, no alt tee pad for 12 or we gave up looking after about 15 mins. It was so windy I wasn't going to try to throw it across the water. then from there we ended up getting confused on holes and 17 tee pad throws to 18, we gave up and just thought the hell with it. And won't be going back.
