Wenatchee Rotary Park
This is a very clean, very cute little course.
It is fun but has definite problems. Apparently this year was the first year since they have added a public water park, fountains and concrete area where kids can play.
This is a beautiful park, but they are trying to fit too much into a public park.
It has 2 holes that exceed 300 feet, and one of them literally positions you throwing over a playground.
7 others hover around 150-200 feet
I can confidently throw over 300, but it still feels scary hucking over children's faces and clearing park benches and picnic tables by less then 10 feet (honestly it was probably 10 feet to the nearest bench from the basket and it was packed on this particular Saturday).
4 out of nine holes share a big field as fairway. I had to substitute basket 3 for basket 8 because there was a family that set up a grill in front of 8 (second throw over 300, I can throw confidently but their blanket and children were literally under the basket). Thankfully though the basket for 3 was probably 30 feet away from the basket for 8.
They do the best they can with the space they have there, and it is beautiful and clean, fun course if you are local, reminds me of some of the private 9 holes in apartment complexes or college campuses that I have played. Great location for you to bring only one disc and have a good time. I had the sprinklers come on while I was playing and it was actually really fun. Not technical at all though, I never had to think about my throw.
Hole 1 - Next to parking lot along the houses about 170 feet.
Hole 2 - Same as 1, I think it was 190
Hole 3 - Slight downhill, grilling family hazard on right (probably not permanent, during non grilling days, black ace hazard) about 180 feet
Hole 4 - 340 feet INTO an open play area, seriously I snapped a photo.
Hole 5 - 170 feet throw into and open field
Hole 6 - 200 feet to the edge of a 50 foot concrete circle
Hole 7 - Only Technical throw there are 2 trees in front of you, about 200 feet
Hole 8 - 305 feet, middle of a field, watch for people, shared fairway, great spot for grilling at the basket (joke).
Hole 9 - Back toward pad 1 about 200 feet.
All of my distances are guesses, except the long holes. To the courses credit it had concrete pads and fantastic signs.
As a negative I had to chase children that picked up my disc and ran around twice in a single 9 hole round.
I don't recommend making this a destination course, but if you find yourself in the area with a half an hour to kill it is fun, try to avoid weekends or sunny days as this gets packed.
