Pros: 1. Intermediate length holes, but most require proper disc and flight selection.
2. LHBH and RHFH friendly!
3. Unique baskets, such as......#1. recessed into a hillside, #11. sunken basket, #14. a 'shuffleboard' basket, basket is at the end of a platform, over-hanging a drop off, and includes a double mando to approach, and #15 the spidey hole.
Course is clean and easily navigated as compared to the previous layout.
Cons: 1. Mixed use area, some holes play along the periphery of other activities, just be aware and respectful of the campers.
2. A couple of the longer holes play across a wide open field, an opportunity to 'let fly', but no risk involved.
Other Thoughts: 1. Beautiful, but long, drive to the course. It is located within Kings Canyon NP, so make the best of it!!!
2. Staff and campers are very friendly.
3. General store located near hole #1, snack shop just across the street.
4. Restrooms in several locations.
This course has had a lot of recent work put into it! It shows! Worth coming back to play again, a big shout out to Jim Schultz and all who helped him.

Jumbled Mess

Pros: -Lots of garbage cans and the grounds are clean of trash

-Small shop located in the general store on site.

-Most baskets are new, clean and visible.

-While the vast majority of the holes are very short, this is a great course to improve midrange driving and approach shots.

-Several holes will prove a little challenging because the basket is situated on a hillside, downhill from the tee (requiring a careful approach or well planned drive).
Cons: - The course is jumbled and lacks clear signage

-Several holes intersect, with fairways crossing a small field from different angles; players have to throw around a picnic area from at least three different holes. Another hole runs behind the target wall of an archery range.

-Tee pads are dirt/mud (depending upon the season), marked with an angled, wooden tee-line embedded in the dirt

-Grounds maintenance projects frequently re-route/close one or more holes at a time.
Other Thoughts: Camping/hotels available in Squaw Valley, Sequoia National Park, Kings Canyon National Park, or Wilsonia, Grant Grove or Cedar Grove. Anything "nearby" will be at least a 30 minute drive. Gas facilities on site during peak season (April-October). No cell reception. Nearest services (Gas, food, etc.) aside from the immediate location are 30 miles away.

 Waste of time

Pros:
It's within Sequoia National Park, so your trip out to this weak course will not be wasted
Cons:
No tee signs
No map/kiosk
Confusing layout
Extremely short holes
Course set on common ground area for a retreat facility
Other Thoughts: The amount of time you've spent reading this review is already too much time to spend on this course.

I wouldn't even call it a course, more a collection of disc golf baskets.

I was camping in the Sequoia National Park and figured I had to give this course a play, but my brother & I didn't even finish as the course was extremely confusing, there were no tees or tee signs, and the holes we did figure out how to play were laughably short.

Your time in the area would be much better spent checking out everything the parks have to offer.

Pros: Beautiful surroundings, very friendly staff at the camp. Lots of hills and blind shots. You will definately get a workout up and down hills if you aren't on your game!
Cons: A few spots where there was an old sign for a previous hole, got confusing at times.
Other Thoughts: It's kind of a hit it right on, or miss and you go hiking!

Pros: Very beautiful setting, but the course is pretty short. Lots of elevation shots both up and down hill. Alot of blind shots or tight fairways shots thru woods. Very well maintained course very clean and the people there are very helpful.
Cons: Again pretty short. Hole 7 is only 90 feet! Look for very good opportunities to birdie most holes. There par is definitely for beginners no reason to play any of these holes more then par 3.
Other Thoughts: This will be a great course for most pros to practice their mid-range shots and putting ability. The course start is directly to the right of the security shack. If you can not find it ask in the administration building. They are all very nice people and will even give you a scorecard or rent you discs if you do not have any. All in all this course is definitely one to check out since its the only on in the mountains that I am aware of.

Pros: A good course considering the space.
Challenging with the most Front 9 being in the woods and most of the back nine being in open field exept 16.
Cons: Some very short holes
A few have a long walk between holes
Other Thoughts: Played it with my friends when we were at the Christian Camp and the camp really changed my life and brought so much closer to God. So if you go up there for camp or for something else, this is a must

Pros: Beautiful surroundings.
decent hole locations

Cons: A couple holes on the front are to much alike.
16 is only good for turning discs into tacos
some horrible tee boxes
Other Thoughts: Tee boxes are dirt and are very rutted and uneven
Front 9 is fairly easy and short with a much longer and challenging back 9
