Westminster Disc Golf Course
Fun course, Very open for the first 8 holes than it gets a little tighter. My favorite holes on the course are 14 & 17 as they are almost mirror images of eachother. This course should be played with actual shoes on (no flip flops or sandals) due to the cactus, yucca and weeds. I love # 1 because it has an amature tee location and a pro tee box. If i remember the rule on the sign correctly Every time the hole is at the "A" location it is played as a par 4
This is a great location for a course. There is plenty of room here and the course seems to ramble through a lot of space. The first nine and the second nine are very different. The first nine is designed to simply out muscle your friends. Almost all the holes are long and open that a weak arm like mine found quite a challenge. No technical finesse required but the bomber is king. What the front nine has and has not the back nine does and does not. Not to say that there are a lot of short holes. The front nine is all brawn and no brains. Not much to think about, but the back nine requires more shot selection. It is not really technical but with the use of the creek and more varied terrain you want to think about where your first throw goes to give you the best chance to get the second close or have a chance to drill it to the basket. The risk reward here comes from the challenges of the second shot with only a few holes having some decisions to make from the tee. That decision is to go for broke or play it safe. I like to see holes where players can choose different fairways or directions based on their strengths and maybe come out equal if say you are sharpshooter vs. the big arm. I would go there to play again. It was a fun day although the wind was very calm the day I played. If the wind is up, which seems very possible here since there is no sheltering from the wind here, this would be different course. A windy day would be a challenge playing this course.
Pros: This course is a very open course that for the first 11 holes you really don't have to worry about hazards or anything too hard. The back 7 holes is where this course comes alive and it gets really interesting. Many holes play around the creek that runs through the course.
Cons: At times the weeds can be a pain if you wear shorts and there are lots of prairie dog holes to dodge. If you have never played this course, get a map or someone who knows where the next hole is, it can be hard to find at times.
Other Thoughts: Depending on the time of year that you go, the creek that runs through the course can make things hard if you throw your disc in the water. Sometimes there is very little water in the creek and you can almost walk through it to get your disc back and other times there can be running rapids and you might as well count that disc as a loss and move on.
