First played on February 26, 2016.  9 holes.

This was the second best course of the day, after Keizer Rapids

From the parking lot, this course looks like just another city park that creatively uses one open field for the entire course.  Hint:  That was sarcasm.  City parks are not generally known for their challenging courses, but this is a good course.  Sure, there are those open shots, but for the most part, the course is challenging, playing through trees, with some change in elevation, and some water that comes into play.  Luckily, it’s a creek, so it’s hard to lose your disc in it. 

The course is easy to follow and well marked, though there is a bit of a hike after the last hole.  It’s listed as an 18 hole course, but there are only nine baskets with 18 tee pads.  I only played the first nine, but most of the different pad placements definitely give the park a different look.  But you know... I’m just sayin’...  You got nine baskets, then you only got nine holes, regardless of where you throw from.

Street Address:  4656 7th Ave SE, Salem, OR 97302

Ask Seri.  She knows how to get there.  There are signs for the park once you get close enough.  The first tee is in the field just south of the back parking area, west of the basketball court.

From there I went to Corban University – about 10 miles away.
