Great Terrain, Poor Design
3 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Nice baskets with hole numbers on them. 18 ends where 1 begins. A couple holes play around water. Some nice long distance holes throughout the course, as well as some shorter technical holes in the middle of the course. Good elevation change on many holes. Excellent terrain for disc golf. Several blind shots. Most tees are pretty worn in and fairly easy to spot once you get close to them. Hole 8: nice 250' tunnel shot. Hole 11: short blind downhill with water behind the basket. Hole 17: nice 400' hole shooting over a large pond; have to throw 300'+ to clear it, and there is only a thin retaining wall between it and another body of water, so laying up is really tough.
Cons: No signs. No map. Confusing layout; poor course design. Very tough to navigate 1st time playing. Natural tees. Lots of blackberry bushes and poison oak on the course. Needs a lot of maintenance. Several holes are completely wide open. Hole 4's basket is MIA. Only one bench (hole 7) and no trash cans on the course. Most baskets are not protected at all.
Other Thoughts: I was very disappointed with the design of the course, especially considering the terrain of the available land. There is potential here for a great 18 hole course, or possibly even a 27, but the course needs a completely new layout. A few of the holes are great, but need different pin positions. A lot of the holes are a complete joke. I was constantly saying to myself: "are you kidding me?" when actually figuring out the hole I was playing. With new pin positions alone this course would be much better. At least create a map and maybe put up some 'next tee' signs. The way it is is sad. If it were up to me I would say completely scrap the current layout with the exception of a few holes, and start from scratch with a new course design. The terrain is fabulous, and I hope to one day play a new layout here.

Pros: Decent length
Many different hole varities
Great if you're a student
Cons: No tee signs
No signs to the next "teepad"
Grass needs to be cut
After it rains, it stays wet awhile
Other Thoughts: If the grass was hacked down quite a bit and some signs and teepads were added it would be a nice course.
