I saw that, thanks! It's really awful, it makes me so disappointed when people think they can just throw baskets out and have a disc golf course. Crossing fairways, blind shots around corners into oncoming pedestrian traffic and throws directly over other park uses just aren't acceptable in my opinion, not to mention the stupid walk out to hole 6 which doesn't have a real line to the basket, then the same stupid walk back. I played the "designed" layout once, then tried out some safari options that made for much more interesting shots and eliminated some of the safety concerns.

We have set up temp baskets and played there before. If anyone is in San Jose on Nov. 6th come support us at that meeting

Good luck with this one! An 18-holer right in the city would be an excellent addition to Bay Area dg. Are you envisioning a Ryan Ranch type or trying to use as much of the creek's trees as possible?

On a funny side note I did birdie hole 6. Nice skip. Yeah the course is a one time play. Sucks that it wasn't better designed.

I found some safari options that will make it a viable practice area for me since it's less than 5 minutes from my house, but it is a shame. I saw a few families out wandering around trying to figure out the course, and two of them gave up and just played catch and one stood around one basket taking turns throwing at it. I think the lack of any kind of signage is going to hurt it's appeal as a beginner course.

I am not sure how the course will be. I will post on here when I know more. I just found out about it at a league event. There are some good course designers in the area so I am sure it will be fun if we get it.

Also, new Walnut Creek course went in this weekend! 9 holes. This is the quote from their Facebook page, "Tee signs going up tomorrow. Baskets going in on Monday. Walden Park open with disc golf on Tuesday!"

Where is this Walden Park in Walnut Creek? Is it another name, I can't find a Walden Park. I'll be in Concord Wednesday and might want to play this. Thanks.

it's on Oak Road, 3 blocks south of Treat Blvd. It looks tiny on the map, maybe 300 ft by 400 ft.
