Practice area or course?
Pros: First off, the land that this course occupies has TONS of potential to be a really nice course with rolling hills, interesting sections of trees, some manmade obstacles - it could probably never be an 18 hole championship style course; but with a careful evaluation of the available area and the foresight to reduce the number of holes, this place could be a great stop-off in between Ryan Ranch and the CSUMB courses.
Cons: Good luck finding the course! In case the picture wasn't quite clear from previous reviewers, this place is a navigational nightmare. We ended up walking around for around 30 minutes trying to get a sense for what the course was supposed to play like before just playing safari to all of the different pin positions. In addition to navigation problems, the area itself is just in disrepair with neglected teeing areas and fairways. This place has GREAT terrain for a disc golf course although it seems that trying to fit in so many holes has led to an unmanageable, mostly unplayable course.
Other Thoughts: Don Davee has really suffered the consequences of the one-too-many redesign and a really nice nearby course at the Ranch. With a little TLC, I think this course could again be suited to serve a nice purpose either as a short family-friendly course with 9-12 holes or, with a longer, more technical layout, perhaps a really good 7-9 hole tester for more advanced players. As it stands right now, the course is good for neither group!
