Pros: It's fine if you want to just practice approach and putting.
Cons: Tee signs were useless, found ourselves replaying holes after realizing we shot to the wrong basket. Pretty sure all the distances were incorrect too. Plays in a very small park surrounded by roads with a play ground and basketball court in the middle. Could be difficult to play if people are using the other facilities. Would be nearly impossible to play for more then one group at a time.
Other Thoughts: Had some time to kill when I was in CA in February and this was the closest course. Definitely don't go out of your way to play here.

Pros: The course plays through a small but nicely maintained city park. There are nice large concrete tees, basic tee signs with hole layout and distance, and baskets in decent shape on all holes. The layout in intuitive and easy to follow. There are a couple small elevation changes, and they're used well to add interest to the course. A couple holes play through the denser trees on one side of the park for a little more challenge. This is a perfect course to bring someone to try out the game, or for really young kids.
Cons: The course is short and incredibly easy. A couple holes are under 100' and almost all are under 200'. Most play straight ahead with no line shaping required. A few holes play pretty close to playgrounds and a basketball court, it could be a safety issue on a nice day. Many of the signs are faded and getting a little hard to read. There are two places where baskets are within about 20' of each other which makes the course feel pretty crammed in.
Other Thoughts: This is a tiny, easy 9 hole course that's obviously intended for new players and small children. It's designed pretty well for that demographic, with reachable holes and limited obstacles. More experienced players will have no problem deuceing every hole here with a putter or superclass disc, there's just no challenge at all. If you're in the area and want to check it off your list, or you want to introduce someone to the sport, this is a fine place to play, otherwise don't bother.
