Pros: - Great tee signs. I would have been totally lost if not for the informative tee signs that include general directions to the following holes.
- Good tee boxes. I would have preferred concrete but the rubber mats ensured sure footing, for now.
- The course is in good shape. A big thank you to all of the volunteers who keep it clean and nice!
Cons: - Poor layout. On the back nine most holes are parallel to the previous ones making it repetitive and increasing the chance of running into the group in front of you.
- No drinking water. If you are constantly running up and down the ridge like me, you will get thirsty.
- Very steep hills. I've listed this as a con because the hills only come into play if you make a bad shot. I would imagine a course like this would have at least one hole with 300' elevation change from tee to basket.
Other Thoughts: Chavez Ridge forces accurate shots and inflicts penalties of long upshots or killer drop-offs if you are not spot on. The course has immense potential but is limited by it's repetitive design and lack of creative use. Forcing tight shots at consistently short distance is not enough to make this course above average.

This is a great place to practice your right handed forehand throws with midrange discs.
