A couple weeks back a friend of mine purchased some new discs for golf and thought it would be a great idea to try them out at Pier Park. I agreed whole-heartedly, so we planned on a Friday outing since both he and I are freelance folk and have flexibility in our schedules. By playing on a Friday we could avoid the throngs of people that would be there over the weekend. Also we wouldn’t embarrass ourselves in front of too many people.
Pier Park is nestled back in North Portland and is actually an easy walk from my home. Having said that, we decide to drive since rain was on and off all morning and we wanted to save our legs for the game – yeah, that’s why we drove. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. (Actually it is the truth)
I am going to try and place the pictures and our scores in some meaningful way that illustrates the course. Also, my buddy is only just getting into playing disc golf whereas I have played this course many times. All things considered I think my buddy did pretty well. All holes for this course are par 3.
NOTE: As always – you can click on any image to open it in full screen.
These were our scores for the course:
- J 4 4 4 3 4 4 3 3 5 5 5 4 4 4 4 4 3 5
- R 4 5 4 4 4 7 5 7 6 5 5 5 6 6 4 4 6 5
As you can clearly see, there is a theme for this course – TREES! Lots and lots of trees. Actually that is one of the reasons I really enjoy this park; there is actually a large place filled with trees that we get to walk through or picnic in or play basket in or if your feeling young and adventurous, skateboard in. The skateboard park that is pretty cool – if your into that sort of thing. Come on down and enjoy. Also, for you dog lovers, there is a dog park that is now connected by way of bridge over the train tracks on the west side of the course between holes 2 and 3 if you want to get your dog into some other dog business.
Peace be with you!
More to come…
