Move This Course Where The Students Might Actually Play It!
2 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: The Mendocino College Course sits on the left as you approach the athletic fields. There's plenty of space here with this being a large undeveloped section of hilly grassland with some wooded areas. Actually, with some major clean-up, this would be a wonderful place for a serious course.
But what we have now are some baskets randomly scattered over a large, mostly inhospitable piece of land with no signs, directions, map, tee pads, nothing that makes a course playable or enjoyable.
Cons: The land is overgrown and rough with poison oak, blackberries and various other crazy nasty thorny bushes.
The grass is way overgrown and haven't been mowed since Dave Feldberg was a toddler.
The once natural tee pads are now just a distant memory.
The distances here are advanced level and when combined with the wind leave the course with few willing players. Example; # 17. I think I found what once was the tee pad (natural). You're throwing over a very nasty patch of rough and a grove of trees with a gale force wind to a raised basket about 325' away. There's no way the average recreational player could clear the nasty rough and grove of trees throwing into this wind. Solution - Skip this hole. Better solution - Skip this course all together!
Other Thoughts: Take these baskets out now and design a nice little college student, friendly campus course. Somewhere where the coeds could enjoy a round after dinner playing in flip flops carrying one disc. These students have no interest in tackling this overgrown monster of a course the way it plays now, getting all sweaty and dirty and scratched up. They mostly want it to be a social occasion. A nice little campus pitch and putt would do the trick.

not really enjoyable
Pros: -Has baskets
-Is a disc golf course? does that count?
-Has a hole that shoots over a pond
Cons: -Signs are temporary and don't show length, fairway, some tees are hard to tell which way to throw from!
-Many blind holes
-Was not mowed..in months..tall grass growing into a basket on one hole, sharp weeds in fairway can literally cut your skin
-Poison oak runs RAMPANT on the woods holes
-Woods holes are poorly designed and require crazy luck and you will land in poison oak
-Bad rocky tees
-Hard to find, no maps
Other Thoughts: Needs a complete overhaul, land has some potential but this just doesn't work.
