This is my home course and where I learned to play. The holes are quite long and unless you drive 350'+, there are no "Ace" chances. You can really work on unloading a long drive on holes 1-6 because there aren't any trees in the way. #s 7 and 8 are nice holes with some challenging trees and out of bounds areas. #9 is the shortest and gives <300' drivers like me a birdie chance. If you play in the summer, bring your rubber boots and deet. The course is seriously overwatered! I play several ...

I will first admit I am a little biased about this course because it is my home course and I also designed it with the help of the Parks and Rec department here in Mountain Home. I like playing this course a lot. It does not have as many in air obstacles as other courses but it lends itself to a lot of "airing it out" opportunities. Holes 7-9 are the best ones to play because trees do come into play on those holes. Holes 1-6 have some obstacles such as small hills, roadways and a BMX track.The c ...

Watered too much during the summer and the wind blows all of the time. Not enough trees for technical shots, very wide open.
Update March 2016 - added 3 new trees to hole 1 and 2 fairways. Makes it a little more technical. Added alternate yellow tees most shorter than 300ft for more birdie opportunities.

This is my home course and 1-6 are open holes with nothing too technical about them. I do like them tho because its allowed me to work on power and accuracy without the loss of any disks. I gets very windy so if its not windy in mountain home I would get out there and play the course.

My new home course, very open and not too many obstacles. 1-5 completely open drives so they are not very difficult. 5-9 a lot of tree coverage. big downside is that tee's are grass, and I love concrete pads.

For a beginner like me, less than 2 months playing, the length of this course kills the score. The grass is way over watered and unless you throw well over 300ft, you have to lay up very short on hole 4 or have you disc chewed up by the gravel parking lot. Hole 7, if the tee pad was moved to the right about 15 feet, it would give you a better line through the trees instead of a throw and pray it misses. Needs concrete tee pads or at least something.
