9 Holes.  Played on September 23, 2014.

Astoria is in the extreme northwest corner of Oregon.  And if you are coming from Washington, you can only get there by taking the extremely impressive 101 bridge over the Columbia River.  If you have anxiety problems with bridges... well... you’re pretty much screwed with the entire Northwest, but this bridge  is more bridgy than the rest.

The course isn’t bad, but after just playing Lucky Mud, most anything is going to be a disappointment.  It’s a small course that plays around the fair grounds.  There are a bit many shots across open fields, but there are also some shots along the edge of a clear cut former forest that are a bit tricky, and the orchard on the hill comes into play on a couple of shots.  This is a good course, though a bit easy (I birdied three of the last four holes).  If I lived in Astoria, I would enjoy playing it regularly.  But I don’t, and I don’t see myself ever traveling there again just to play disc golf.

Directions:  You can’t get there from here.  I’m not sure how I found the park, and I’m even less sure how I got back home.
