    You are obviously referring to the course keeper, Ol' Bob.

        Doesn't Benson look right at Multnomah falls? That's the best scenery, and by far the worst course! Rooster rock has naked people with in walking distance. Depending who's out, there might be some great scenery.

          It's just west of M. Falls. I don't think you can see them, but there is another falls that you can see. Very beautiful.

          Not the worst course. It all depends on what you're looking for. If you want a Milo experience then yeah, you'll be disappointed. If you are taking a new player with you, want a quick stop off the freeway (takes 10-15 minutes to play 9), or want to work on your approach game with your putter then it is a good course.

          Don't hate something for what it is not; love it for what it is!

            That isn't hating. Benson is one of the worst courses around if you are at all serious about playing disc golf. There is not much to love about that course.

                I think Benson's fine for a quick stop on the way to somewhere else. But it's still probably the worst course in Oregon.

                  Yes.


                  McIver doesn't have anything like that.

                    McIver = Verdant, Pastoral, Serene

                    Whistlers = Dramatic, Inspiring, Resplendent

                    Both are amazing courses and amazing venues, but Whistlers setting is second to none!

                      Yeah Milo has something more like this, I will take the evergreens over the brown oak any day!

                      Are you saying Whistlers is second to none in Oregon or in the World, because the scenery at the Japan Open is pretty freaking amazing!

                        ok maybe half the year you get shots like that and as high as the Umpqua is in that pic. and as green, i would say thats from around Feb./March.


                        but more power to you.

                          I think this is like Ford vs. Chevy, Roc vs. Buzzz, etc... there's no right answer. I'll always prefer mountainous scenery over flat woods, even if those mountains are brown.

                          (And yes, that WB picture is from mid-March.)

                            Hmm, sounds like this could use an outsider's perspective. I think a road trip is in order at some point. So Milo and Whistler's are obviously "must plays". What other courses, preferably near I-5 would you say are "must plays?" I have a few in mind, but I'd like to hear what the OR perspectives are.

                              Adair & Dexter. And Tadmor, if it's open.

                              And if you're in Estacada anyway (because of McIver), be sure to visit Timber.

                                Adair, Dexter, Waterloo, Bryant, Willamette.... all are worth the trip.
                                ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē
