Rookie's Review of GG Park
Pros: GG Park is bigger than Central Park in Manhattan and you can really get the sense of how big the park is when you play this course.
I have wandered and run through GG Park dozens of times, but have never really experienced the wilderness of the park until I went out last weekend and had my first experience of disc golf.
The canopy of eucalyptus trees and ivy force you to make accurate throws... if you don't you will pay for it!
I was amazed how organized and well kept the course was. Plus, all the people I crossed paths with were really cool and mellow (typical SF)... no one was pressing and in a hurry.
Cons: If you need food or beverage make sure to bring it with you... there's not much located near by since you're way out in the Avenues.
Other Thoughts: Although this was my first outing of disc golf it will not be my last. My buddy told me how lucky I was to have this course in my backyard and I agree! I went out and purchased a couple discs and plan on playing GG Park regulary.

Pros: Very nice , challenging course with a big variety of trees. Very clean , not even the cans and bottles that usually lay around the pads on most courses.
Cons: 1710 kilometers (1062 miles) From home!
Other Thoughts: Very Few trees died in the making of this course,(although a few were slightly damaged by the time we finished playing)

Pros: Love it, its close to where I live. Mach III baskets. Love the course layout, very challenging for the space provided by the city.
Cons: Waaaaaay too crowded on weekends and some weekdays. Don't like the fact that SF is so smoke friendly.
Other Thoughts: Love this course!!

A world-class course
Pros: Completely professionally installed course, from elaborate support walls holding up elevated tee boxes, signage, this is a work of art. Set in a beautiful park setting, with tall eucalyptus trees providing a lot of the challenge as far as tee shots are concerned. Mostly wooded, but a handful of more open shots. Three pin positions for each hole, in some cases with drastically different difficulties. Course can play very easy in all A positions, or fairly difficult in all C positions. Excellent variety of lefty/righty holes.
Cons: Some of the most interesting and challenging C pin positions are only able to be used in tournaments. Course can be crowded on weekends, but if you start early there should be no problem.
Other Thoughts: The SF Disc Golf Club is a true testament to perseverance and hard work, for fighting 7 years to get this course installed, raising over $50,000 to install it, and doing a perfect job of design, installation, and maintenance. Huzzah!
