Gorgeous course nestled against a pristine lake. 21 holes, multiple pin positions on most holes, exceptional signage, benches and bathrooms. At least one hole (5) has a par 3 pin position and a par 4 position, this is innovative and pretty dang rad. There is a great blend of hole lengths and shapes and plenty of O.B. to contend with, the grass fairways are beautiful and perfectly maintained; not to mention the entire park.

Gorgeous course nestled against a pristine lake. 21 holes, multiple pin positions on most holes, exceptional signage, benches and bathrooms. At least one hole (5) has a par 3 pin position and a par 4 position, this is innovative and pretty dang rad. There is a great blend of hole lengths and shapes and plenty of O.B. to contend with, the grass fairways are beautiful and perfectly maintained; not to mention the entire park. It is nearly impossible to lose a disc here, with the exemption of hole 13. Subtle elevation change throughout the entire course keeps things fresh. But the thing that really sets Walcott apart is the stunning array of old growth and new trees. Depending on the season, the trees could be a variety of colors- purple, pink, red, orange; add to this the pristine water that pops into view on many of the holes and you've got something special happening. Hole 13 has a safari tee that plays over about 200 ft. of the lake's deep water and towering trees to a basket perched on top of a lava rock platform, good stuff. There is a bit of this rock scattered through the course adding some additional flavor. Being in South East Idaho, Walcott can get really windy. The massive trees do a lot to block some of the wind, especially on holes 11-21. The wildlife is abundant and the camping spots are sweet. I've heard that in the peak of the summer the insects are terrible, avoiding this time of year to visit would probably be a good idea. The town of Rupert is actually a cool little place about 15 min. from the course. I saw 2 golfers in 2 days. The words disc golf oasis or disc golf paradise are not far fetched when talking about Lake Walcott.

As a course itself, i give this a B+ to A- but what makes this an A+ course for me is the fun factor. Not sure if it was having the course to ourselves, or how awesome the place is, but it was just a blast!! I just wanted to play 25 more rounds after I was done. Great course!

As good as advertised! You could combine it with Massacre Rocks to make a big day. I plan to play it again ASAP.

Solid Epic Course!!! This place has it all!!! Hole #5 is a Par 4 in Long! Making it a 64 for Par. Great Signs, Awesome Flow, Elevation Changes, Course Maps @ Hole #1... I would have given it an A+, except the Tee boxes are rubber Mats and uneven, Need Concrete Pads!!! And when you pull in, there's no direction to where Hole #1 is, I think the Park Rangers could easily do something about that. All in All, there's no doubt that this is Idaho's #1 Course!!! An Oasis in the middle of nowhere, and a Discgasim (For Definition, Go Play Here) :)

This course has the feel of a Pro-Style golf course. Great grooming. Short holes to incredibly long holes. A raised pin, which is always a cool twist. Ann Morrison (Boise) on steroids
