Fredericksen Wilderness DGC
This course is very short, but still lots of fun. Lots of trees and a beautiful setting which is remote enough that it isn't ever crowded. More holes dog-leg right than left. Some holes are pretty overgrown so keep your eyes on your disk. Well marked, bag holders at every tee but NO GARBAGE CANS. Pack out your own garbage PLEASE. I'm not your mom.
Have played hundreds of courses on the left coast, and I must say that this is the WORST one !!! Don't even waste your time !!
I really enjoyed this course, looking at the distance I was laughing that it could actually be challenging. It really was though, they made great use of tight fairways and steep slopes. Added bonus is the solitude!
Only negatives were that it shared a driveway with a house, lack of signage, and a few silly holes that I am sure will be fixed in time.
Lots of fun.
This is one of the most challenging courses I've ever played . . . not really for beginners. Lots of steep terrain and pretty good length considering that is deeply embedded in a dense forest. With recent clearing and improvements it is a bit more manageable to play and easier to find holes and tees. The forest is magical and a joy to walk through, but allow time for disc hunting as the fairways (if you can call them that) are tight and undergrowth extensive. With a bit more clearing and improvements to tees and signage this course could evolve to a 4 rating.
This course can be difficult to find as the entrance shares a driveway with a house. Once you get down the driveway there is a good sign and plenty of parking. There is a long walk to the first tee 1/4 mile along a path and access road. The course is on property owned by the Lutheran Church and is open to the public. The course is well marked. The red signs will guide you to the next hole. Each hole has been cut out of heavy woods. Hole 1 is extremely steep uphill and will test your fitness level. After 4 holes the course levels off significantly until hole 17. Hole 17 drops steeply off to the left on the side hill and 18 is extreme downhill. Holes 8-10 are currently being redesigned to add some length and avoid the wet areas.
Bring your accuracy because there are lots of tight shots. Fun and unique course that will make your legs burn.
