A great course. Very technical. Both long and short holes. A little elevation change. The best part, always mowed and green. YOU NEVER HAVE TO SEARCH FOR A DISC!!!! Even better, hitting the bells helps your accuracy greatly. Hit this place up. Only bummer is the tees are difficult to find. Go with someone who knows the course the first time. Great course. **The north pole to pole only has four poles now because one had to be removed, bummer**

This 9 hole beauty is a great winter course. Not too easy, not too technical. Tone poles instead of baskets require accurate putting, no tee-pads but with a guide you can find your way to tee areas. No underbrush so you won't loose a disc here.

Tones are always going to get a lower ranking due to the fact that well.......they are tones. That being said the layout is not to bad with some technical sides but there are no tee pads or even markers to know where to start or where to go next, there are some old 2 x 4s painted yellow pounded into the ground on end but by now they are hard to find even if you have seen them before. Put some tee markers in and tis goes up to a C+ put actual tee pads in and your looking at a B+ make a map or some alternate tee pads and its an A+.

Ok so if you have a guide you will be able to play this course, BTW tone pole are very hard to hit(not forgiving). Not to long or short.

I don't think any course with no tee pads or some kind of signage should get a rating better then a C.

its a fun short course with a few technical shots. Tee pads are very tough to find. There was also a tone missing the last time i was there, which is only a minor problem because there is still a pole to hit.

Beautiful lawn on this historic hospital, this tone course is weaved over several walk paths, and old tennis courts. Marked the tees with numbered stakes, so rate it higher now...

Fun course.....but no tee pads or signage....First time on tones and had a blast. Up grade the course and this could be an easy A.

I am working on upgrading this course. Numerous obstacles include the fact that it is a part of the state hospital and in a historic location. I am currently working with the hospital administration on upgrades and avenues of funding for baskets, and with the Salem Historical Society for a waiver grandfathering our course in so we do not need extra fees and red tape involved. Hopefully to be in place by fall 2014. I have uploaded an image of the course tees/tone poles showing the tee areas that ...

Weird course right outside the Oregon State Hospital (where One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was shot). Almost completely flat. Lots of old trees and a low canopy on a lot of holes, which makes some drives fairly challenging. You don't see too many tube tone courses, which is interesting. This would be a great lunchtime course if you worked nearby. Plus, as far as I can tell, it's barely used and there's almost never anyone there.

This has got to be one of the hardest courses in Salem to shoot under par for the majority of people. I love the layout and would only like to see hole 2 in a longer pin position. Great to see this project rolling in the right direction!

Perfect course for the beginner, yet challenging enough for any level player. This 9 hole course is about one mile around, and has a combination of long and medium length holes. The course is very open with green grass and there's not much chance of loosing a disc except for in the beautiful old trees that wind thru the course and make it such fun.
