Update Course Information
This course was recently installed (it is now 9/7/09). The University of Utah used to have a regular golf course on the east end of campus. This disc golf course was put on top of the old golf course. As I did not walk the old course, it might be that the land used for the disc golf course is just a part of the land previously used for the golf course. Some of the tee pads and targets are located on what were once putting greens. It's interesting feeling the ground as I walk on it, as it does feel like it was a different type of grass than the rest of the course. The course features elevation changes, particularly in the second half, as well as a variety of trees. It is more a technical course than some of the other courses in the valley, and there are not many where someone with very long range throws a fully powered drive. No water hazards, but be careful of the fence on the east side of the course especially on targets 5-7, as it can be too easy to throw the disc over the fence where the TRAX lines and streets with oncoming cars are driving. It can be tricky recovering the discs when that happens. Fortunately, there are no major hazards where discs are easily lost, other than the danger of the TRAX lines and traffic.
UPDATE: In fall 2010, target locations for 10-12 were changed in order to reduce the number of discs that landed in the parking lot (and possibly hit cars). While 10 and 12 are similar, 11 is much longer than it was previously.
Course Location:State: UT
The course is located across the fence from the TRAX station which is closest to Primary Children's hospital. It is on the east side of the University of Utah campus. Note than a course map and scorecard can be found and printed from www.utah.edu/campusrec
Note also that there are places on campus where discs can be rented. We brought all our discs, so we did not try to locate which buildings have disc rentals when we played.
