always clearly shows when a DG course is made by DG'ers! this course is awesome with lots of room for improvements. meaning sooooo much area to work with for alt T`pads or pin locations, fairways more defined, couple holes are impossible to see the basket let alone run at it and of course the blackberry and poisin oak are thick as hell. although the course area is amazing with horse trails circling the course, cherrie trees, and filbert trees all through the course. the layout does give most hol ...

This course is awesome. Lots of variety. Wooded shots, open big arm shots, tunnel shot. It has them all. When you come out to play here remember it is a brand new course. If you get off the fairways it is rough. Definitely play with a spotter. And beware the curse of the Valley. Mosquitoes and poison oak. Just add to your arsenal Technu and Cutters. This is a bad year for both. The course shows what determined disc golfers can build when working with blackberries, thick brush and poi ...

Now the Salem area has that course that requires all the shots and skills in your bag. Its in its infancy and needs to be beat in. Wide fairways with some pretty nasty rough. Like most courses down South, you will find poison oak. There are mosquitos. YOU LIVE IN OREGON!! Learn to recognize poison oak and avoid it. Bug spray people..bug spray for pesty mosquitos. I played the course and saw plenty of both. Got 1 mosquito bite and no poison oak. With proper signage, a few trash cans and some foot ...

What I like about this course is it makes a player use a varity of shots. Most courses you use 3 to 5 discs to play, this course forces a player to think and use around 8to10 discs per round. There has been some dramatic improvement to this course in the past two weeks. The rough on holes 2,4, 5,6 has been worked over nicely. Tee pads are totally completed so the trip hazards are gone. There is still some fresh poison oak popping up on holes 4, 5, & 6 in the fairways (the cockroach of invasive p ...

Course is awsome keeping in mind that it is new and alittle rough. The difficulty level is just right. Not unreasonably difficult but not easy by any standard. Goodixture of holes long and short and doglegs both ways. My review will bump up to an A when there is a kiosk with a course map and legit tee sinage. And maybe afew trash cans through out the course. All things that i believe will soon be established.

I was the first person to officially play the couse and I just went back a few weeks later to play it again. Even in the time between plays I can see how much work is being done on this course. Before I even played it, I was hoping the course design would incorporate the old filbert orchards into play. I was not disappointed. I love when people who play disc golf design a couse, and it is very evident here. Each hole is a little different from the next. The signiture hole will obviously be #12 i ...

Great new course. Great flow. Use a spotter as some holes can gobble discs. A great addition to the northwest.

This course fills the gap that was lacking in the Salem-Keizer area. Great course with plenty of length and a level of technically that will make you work on your placement shots. It will only get better as permanent signage is already in the works. As long as you stay out of the rough and in the fairway it is a very playable course as-is and was designed with the intermediate to advanced player in mind.

I think this course brings things to the table that no other course in the Salem area has. Length, large tee pads, & some interesting shots. Yes I know is not finished & it is still rough in spots. But it is a course that is only about 1 month old. Soon there will be permanent tee signs, garbage cans, a kiosk, & permanent walk out signs. With these items and a year of play I believe this course can be rated even higher!

Finally managed to get a round in with some friends Saturday afternoon, and while the course did kick our butts, I love the course layout! We play Woodmansee a lot, and this is like a longer version of Woodmansee, with 18 original instead of a repeated 9. Lots of variation, from short, heavily wooded shots to long, open-air bomb ranges. Every shot in your arsenal comes into play at some point. Didn't see too much garbage around the course, and only got a few mosquito bites between the four ...

Course is very challenging and long. It's still rough and new. The more it gets used, the better it will get. Bring a friend and a spotter. This course will eat your discs!

Wheatland DGC has a good mix of technical and long open holes. This is exactly what this area needed. One course with a balanced layout and clever design that will last a lifetime. Don't expect this course to reach its best form soon as much work is needed to get it to reach its potential. As grass grows in fairways and edges of wooded areas get beat in it will only improve without loosing its difficulty. I predict this course will be a local favorate imdediately and will be drawing PDGA sanctioned events with in 3 years.

This course is just awesome! Geared toward the intermediate to advanced player alike. The course has a lot of the variety lacking at other local courses, and will challenge you with every shot imaginable. This place can be thick, as stated, but as a new course it plays extremely well. Soon enough, there will be holes burrowed through the thick spots. Solid "B", soon to be an "A" after it breaks in a bit more.

I have only seen the first nine but use quite a few of my disc to get those done, which is a good thing due to the long and short holes and the drives going both right and left off the tees. and the technical trees left throughout the course.

I've heard and read good things and bad things about this course. Finally got out and played a round with a coworker, I enjoyed playing the layout and will play it more in the future. Unfortunately vandals have removed some tee signs and walk out markers but was able to find all 18 holes in order. If you play the fairways, really no problems. Get off in the berry vines and crap you will lose your disc. Not a beginner course. Good job by PacWest, State Parks and all of the volunteers.

Group of 4 of us played the course this evening. Love the place! Nice and flat. Plenty stroller friendly. Tee pads are oversized. Baskets catch like a first baseman.There was maybe one spit out between the 4 of us. All of my real complaints will be addressed soon. I will be back often. Thank you Pac West DG.

I think this will be a good course eventually but right now the wooded holes are super thick with poison oak and dense blackberries, the classic Oregon one two punch. Once the tall grass is mowed down there could be some sweet rollers on the back 9. With enough love and course work this course will be lots of fun, Until then I'd play real conservative, stay out of the rough, and bring some spotters.

Liked the teepads with the foot fault built in, but didn't like the blackberries and poison oak. The course has potential and like most courses will get better once it gets beat down a little. I'll give in another try in a few months. I'm sure my rating of this course will go up eventually.

This course is a little rough for the first 7 even though there has been tons of work. The poison oak seems to be cut pretty short so watch your ankles. Most of that oak was within those first 7 holes. Plenty of variety of shots. As soon as this course has been in for a couple of years and starts to clean up it will be an A.

This course still has the new car smell. 1st class teepads and good signage. Blue Bentleys round out the course. Being new this course is pretty rough with lots of blackberries and poison oak. Open, technical long short you name it. Many holes feature sections of an old filbert orchard to shoot through or guard pins. When this course gets worn in and cleaned out a bit its an A. I also felt a few of the pars should have been swapped. Loooong hole in woods gets a 3 but an open long field shot a 4? You will see what I mean when you play it. I would go out of my way to play here again.

Great coarse!! Reminds me of Milo, and Dexter. This coarse will only get better with time. Not sure if I agree with all of the Par 4's. There where a couple par 3's that could of been switched with a couple of the par 4's. I would defiantly travel to play this coarse again.

I feel that the layout of the course is great, however it may take several years for this course to reached its its potential.make sure you take plenty of mosquito repellent it is infested. I will play the course again in 2019.

I feel like this could be a sweet course someday. good teepads is always a plus in my book. really grippy and nice. not sure if im a fan of the footfault zone since I always like to throw off the front part so it messed with my head. I felt like I kept throwing the same few shots. just either huge hyzers of straight up the gut shots. the par 4's are really easy to 3 in my opinion but very hard to 2. whoever designed this layout loves to throw big hyzer bombs and over the top shots. hole 12 is su ...
