Great wooded course

Pros: - Very well-kept wooded course - scrub and brush are kept to a minimum so you rarely have to spend much time searching for discs after the inevitable tree kicks.
- Tons of pin positions that were all accurately marked at each teepad.
- Well-marked course with clear and accurate hole maps at each tee so you rarely have to search for the next teepad or basket.
- Two loops so you can play a short round or stop by your car halfway through a round.
- Multiple lines on almost every hole but very few gimme holes so there's always a challenge to be had.
Cons: - Few opportunities for big arms to bomb.
- Washers indicating pin position are loose and letters are written closely together on some holes - could easily get turned to the wrong letter and mislead players who don't scout ahead on some holes where the pin positions aren't visible from the teepad.
- Pretty basic baskets - not really a major con because they caught discs as well as most courses, but after a round on Delaveaga's posh Mach X baskets, there's definitely room for improvement.
Other Thoughts: Maybe it's because I had good company and a great round (by my standards), but I loved this course. I've played quite a few courses in CA, AZ, and TX, including several four or four-and-a-half star courses, but this was my favorite of them. There's a constant challenge on every hole as there should be on a wooded course, but unlike some courses, you don't have to climb into a ravine or through a morass of poison oak (we only saw one tiny sprig of it all day) or spend an hour searching through scrub to recover a shanked disc. This is a beautiful course, wonderfully maintained, and a great pleasure to play.

Amazing Course

Pros: Very technical course with a handful of open long drives and most with narrow pathways and some where spending an extra moment will be beneficial. Course is very well laid out with a great map showing pin locations.

Most courses I play are open with really long drives so this great for making accurate shots trying to get through the trees.
Cons: It took a few wholes to realize, on the pole with the map there is a 2" washer with A, B, C and some with D on them. On the pole is an arrow pointing to one of the letters. After whole 3 is when it clicked what that meant. It could be a little better labeling. Blue baskets are often hard to see with the sun shinning through the trees.

Best Course in the Area

Pros: Course is well marked, thanks to the new signs from TRULine Disc Golf.

The baskets are moved frequently to keep things from getting boring.

Terrain is varying, allowing for one to test skills.
Cons: N/A
Other Thoughts: This course is a must play if traveling through or to the area of Auburn, Grass Valley or Nevada City.

A stroll in the woods playing disc golf

Pros: -You end where you start. Hole 1 and hole 18 are in the same vicinity, so you don't have to walk that extra distance to your car

-Bathroom's and a water fountain

-Very technical course that even a newbie like myself can play and do relatively decent

-Scenery can be a nice distraction, if you're having a bad game

-Nothing too steep, up or down, to worry about when maneuvering through the course

-Nothing really too long in distance, every hole seems to play about 200-350 on average. Although a few holes do have that near 400+ foot basket
Cons: -Some baskets you can't see from the tee, so you have to use the tee sign to estimate

-No basket indicator on the tee sign so you have to look for basket unless someone is playing ahead of you
Other Thoughts: Have a towel ready because your shoes and discs will accumulate the red-brown dirt that makes up the ground constituent of the course.

Make sure you look at the tee sign before your next hole. It will give you the general direction in which it is located.

Watch out for holes 13, 14, 15 which the creek comes into play. 13 and 15, you throw across it to get to your basket. One basket setting of 14, puts the basket near that creek, near the edge of the hill. Would love to play this course again.

Pros: Technical shots, open shots, skips, rolls, great scenery. Parking is plenty and easy to find. Great location and not too crowded. Bring my wife and kids here to play with some friends that are new to the game as well. Dry ground allows for plenty of skip chances. If you throw RHBH, basket placement was just where you want the left.
Cons: Easy to lose your disc. If you are not careful, you can make an errant throw and say good-bye to your plastic. Bathrooms weren't too clean either, but it is a park...can't expect it to shine all the time. Ice...during the winter months, the tee pads can get a little frosty.
Other Thoughts: Love playing this course. Great to get the family together and have a great time playing on a course, this is the one. This was the first time I had a backup on any hole here. Our group of 4 got stuck behind a "tournament" group of players that were very inconsiderate of those behind them. Each person was throwing two or more discs. This created a backup, on what is usually a fast moving course.

Pros: Short, alot of ace runs and "local routes", doesn't really favor any particular throwing style, and the pins change just about every couple weeks.
Cons: Most people get lost without some sort of local to help them navigate the course.Alot of nasty bushes and thick trees. (Accuracy is forsure a must when playing this one). The fairways and greens are very fast so expect alot of skips. The worst part for me is all the people. You're lucky to get a round in on a nice day in a couple hours, playing through multiple groups of 6 and 7 people. ALSO it gets very hot during the summer so BRING WATER!
Other Thoughts: Brighton St Market right down the road sells discs and will be a "lost&found" of sorts for discs. So if you lose one don't freak out, come back in a day or two and the chill locals should have fished it out for ya. Have fun & remember the "2 meter rule".

Pros: Great layout in a densly wooded multi-use park. Beautiful scenery: that reddish Grass Valley dirt, the mature variety of trees and bushes, a small stream that runs through the back 9, and outstanding weather conditions. Well-defined pathways between holes; navigating the course after the 1st time should be a breeze. Difficulty-wise, the trees always seemed to get the way, but that was offset by some shorter length holes.
Cons: My only real criticism is the lack of variety on tee shots. Zero tomohawks or thummers, and only a few anhysers. The majority were traditional RHBH hysers. The course could be more first timer friendly with a few key markers indicating the next teebox. About 2/3 of the signs were missing, and the ones that were there could use a dial to indicate the basket position.
Other Thoughts: For a super-busy round with a tournament just getting underway, the course flowed surpisingly well, with minimal waiting time. Strong local disc golf presence, but the locals were so chummy that no one wanted to join up. This course is very comparable to Golden Gate Park in SF.
Uniqueness: A (so foresty & idyllic with unique Tahoe foothills feel)
Difficulty: A (trees abound; narrow holes)
Fun Factor: A- (super DG ambiance; memorable)
Aesthetics: A+ (super clean; perfect integration of DG & natural beauty)
Overall: A

Pros: Good short hole just real techie. Lots and lots of trees. Best course that I have played. It is good and challenging. Each hole has more than one spot for the basket. It is really nice that way because you can have a different game experience week to week.
Cons: The maps that are not real clear. Other than that, nothing.
