Great layout and use of land
concrete tee pads
signage on most holes
plenty of garbage cans (even though many do not use them)
Variation of hole types
nicely groomed
colored baskets made them easier to see at a distance

beer cans littering the course
locked restrooms (except for at hole #1)
No course map on site
confusing navigation at times (some tee signs were not oriented correctly)

Other Thoughts:
We had no problem with the $5 to park since this course is rated so highly, and we were not disappointed! Take a map or download it to your phone, because it can be overwhelming if you are just looking for the 18E, or 9W, and not playing the full 27.

The long #2 was daunting, especially for a beginner like me, but we hacked away at it until the flag was in sight! Dog-legs left or right, made the wide open holes interesting, and the shorter holes in the tree line were quite technical, especially when your putter bounces off the rim and rolls 20 feet down the hill :)
This was definitely the longest (yardage wise) course I've played, and the cool, damp air was refreshing, even if we caught a little bit of drizzle.

I liked the Pro/Am tees, even if we didn't use the shorter ones. It's great to have that option, and we were out to have fun and improve our game, so why not use the longer ones.

Well worth the extra drive and parking fee!

Milo is long in portions, well maintained and in a lovely grassy park by the Clackamas River. The area holds affectionate connections for older concertgoers because of the week long Vortex 1 concert in 1970. The governor defused a possibly violent reaction to Nixon's visit to OR by holding the only State sponsored concert in US history at Milo. For disc golfers, it and Pier Park are the closest of the top tier NW courses near the DG hotbed of Portland. It might lack the more primitive forest section that one would ask from a top NW course (other top OR courses like Adair and Whistler's Bend offer this), but it does have length, variety, and a super setting.

unlike the previous review, I will leave some details....

Pros- Great all around course, nothing bad to report. Has wide open fairways, with really good grooming (when the weather cooperates for the state to mow). Baskets are kept very well, with fresh paint every year. They are moved for tournaments and sometimes get left that way, so the course changes a little from time to time.

Cons-Keep your disc low on holes 7 and 8 or they might drop left into the river, and Hole 5 is a bear for how long it is.

Other-people should stop grafting the baskets, first off its ugly, second it will get painted over every year anyway, third its not your property so leave it alone.
