My first time playing here (5-4-14). Very nice for a free course! Some of the holes still have the old style baskets "like a cone turned upside down into a basket" which was fun to see and play - seems a bit harder to sink them. The course is confusing if you haven't played it before and I didn't see any directions (other than other players) to follow. It did present a bit of a challenge, but I didn't feel like I was going to lose a disc. I liked it and will return there again with other players new to the course.

If I was to review this course 2 years ago I would rate it a C-, the tees were dangerous and the place had no love. The past year the majority of the local crew who play here have done work, spread wood chips on fairways and near baskets, cleaned up trash to make this place what it is today, as well as landscaping with plants and rocks in various spots on holes 3, 7, 8, 9 where the city does not mow. There are more and more people playing Hansen all of the time now that it is nicer, its harder t ...

Holes on this course are generally small. Some of the holes are older style baskets and may be difficult for inexperienced golfers. Very clean and well taken care of. Just enough forest area, not enough to easily lose a disk. Would recommend for a beginner or for a quick game.

It's not my favorite course but its fairly easy. I don't really like the old style baskets but the course is also very confusing in terms of where to go next if you've never been there

Fun, good mix of long and short, Has some pretty cool fairways, clean. Needs a map! Otherwise laid out well.

Its a fun beginner course a little bit of everything. The cone baskets are awesome.
Everyone that plays the course seems to throw from girl tees... just an observation I've made over the years. Play from the blue tees, its more of a challenge. Otherwise everything is 200ft or less.... not much of challenge birdie everything. That's to all you local Hansen players.

Good mix of elevation, risk/reward. Some holes can get technical.

The cones alone keep me from playing this course on my own, even though it's reasonably close to me. One of my buddies loves this course, I think because of nostalgia, and I can't say no to a round, anywhere. So, I go and whenever there's a cone target, I've learned to just layup and not even bother running a putt.

The first and last, but especially the last, hole can get kind of swampy if it's been raining at all, so bring your keens.

The layout was just confusing is all, we weren't sure were to go hole to hole.
