Pros: -Nice bathrooms.
-Nice playground for the kids to play while you play a quick round.
-Places to sit at almost every tee.
-Elevation changes on most holes.
-Most holes, though short require accurate technical throws for a chance at a 2. A few will make you wish you had a better overhand shot.
Cons: -Very short course. Even if you have a horrible tee shot, par is easily atainable since holes are so short.
-Missing some tee signs. This is a bad thing since many holes are blind so you have to hunt for the basket before you can throw, and I often found the wrong basket before the right one since they are all so close together. Same thing happened when looking for the next tee.
-Missing tee pads on some holes. All the dirt tees are rocky and uneven, and even unsafe on one hole (8 I think) that right after the tee is a steep hill.
-Crossing/super close fairways. Thankfully I was the only one playing. This course's holes are so close together I can only imagine how dangerous this course would be on a busy day.
-Only 12 holes. Yes this is a con, when there are better 18 hole courses nearby.
Other Thoughts: I was pretty disappointed that I chose to play this course while in Placerville instead of playing better courses in nearby Sacramento. I chose this course over the others due to the high reviews. There were only seven reviews and two were 4's and one a 4.5, and I thought man this course is gonna be sweet. After playing the course, I gotta ask, have the previous reviewers not played on a real 4+ star course? I'm guessing not, cause Lions Park doesn't come close to comparing to those.
Don't get me wrong, it's NOT a horrible course, but it's average at best. It's definitely not one I would go out of my way to play again. My review may be overly harsh, but I just wanted out of towners to know this course isn't as amazing as the locals over-hyped it to be with their reviews.
