      Yeah, I drove by this place about a month ago when I was looking for apartments. I was driving down the street and was thinking they need a course in this area and then I saw the basket out of the corner of my eye. It took me two weeks to find the website on line. I just moved to wilsonville and I may go check this course out in the next week. I'll post my review on here. It's a church course, so we need to be respectful so they don't pull the pins.

        Seven baskets, 13 holes from what I could tell. Lots of crossing fairways by looking at the map. Still another course!

          Website says they have 5 baskets (4 permanent, 1 portable), but map shows 7. The map may be the eventual layout.

          I hope to make it out thers soon to check it out.

          On a side note, that may be the most confusing map ever.

              the guy i met who told me about it said that it was still a work in progress... and it looks like the website is asking for donations to finish the course

                I just played this course.

                First of all, I'm as excited as the next guy to have a new course (especially one five minutes from where I work) and applaud anyone who spends the energy and money to put one in. With that being said, I don't think a disc golf course is a good fit for this property.

                Aside from the crossing fairways, there are several concerns.

                There are 3-4 holes where a long shot would go into a heavily used road.
                There are several holes where a long or errant shot would go into a neighboring yard.
                There are shots go directly over a heavily used community garden.
                There is a shot that goes directly over a parking lot. It's great when the lot is empty.
                There are a few shots where the church itself is in the line of fire.
                There are a few shots where the house on church property is in the line of fire.

                I hope to find the course designer and offer my assistance with coming up with a design that will better use the available space.

                  thought you were describing Greenway there for a second, worst use of land ever...imo. Sounds like another, I sure hope they ask for some help, bad design hurts the game...
                  educate your thinking

                    Makes Greenway look like Milo.

                    Agree with your thoughts on poor design being bad for the game.
