Pros: -Easy to follow, course starts at NE corner of the park.
-Course stays out of the way of other park activities.
-Tee signs at each hole.
-Sizable concrete pads/areas to throw from at each hole, allows ample room for approaches although it's not really necessary with most of these holes, which are for the most part under 150 feet.
-Minor elevation changes and obstacles that are used to the best of the parks ability.
-Lights!
Cons: -Some baskets are kind of....altered, however it did not affect our game. Some baskets had chains missing.
-No privacy, no bathrooms available as of 4:30PM on a Sunday.
Other Thoughts: Land available for the DG course is used as effectively as possible, and while the course was short, we were relieved to have a couple of throws over 200 feet toward the end of the course.
There was an 83' par three, come on now, really?
Keep in mind that on Saturdays and Sundays, the parking lot closes at 5. We parked on the street, and sure enough, right at 5, somebody came by and locked the gate. The park DOES stay open and lit up until 10pm though.
Tee signs were faded but readable, however some numbers were missing making it difficult to gauge the distance of the hole, particularly after dark. The sign for hole 8 says its a 6 foot drive, and its actually one of the longer ones.
As everybody else has been saying, it would be dumb not to play PFC Anderson park just about a mile down the road as well. We finished the courses in under a half hour each.

Pros: -Clean, quiet park setting
-Accurate signage
-Good flow. All tees were easy to find from the previous basket. No crossing fairways
-Good use of small hills to make the course more interesting
-Trees and well-placed baskets make for some tricky drives
-Solitude. The course was empty when my friends and I played.
-Close to PFC Anderson park, a similar nine-hole course. Together they make a fun 18 holes of golf.
-Plenty of trashcans. Very little refuse on the course.
-Solid, grippy concrete tees
-Picnic tables and BBQs to relax at
-Plenty of parking
Cons: -Short holes. And when I say short, I mean a few of them were 50' or so. The last few holes have a little more room to work, but you really only need your putter and mid.
-Basket issues. Most were ok, but two or three were old, shallow and dinged up. One basket (hole 8 I think) was in really bad shape. The welds had broken holding the cup onto the pole, leaving the basket to lie on the ground.
Other Thoughts: This course is a nice little nine-holer in the city of Carson, CA. It is very well manicured and fun to play. It is, however, VERY short. One of the signs said the basket was 53' away!
The shortness of the holes and the basket issues aside, its a pretty fun course and could help you improve your short game quite a bit. Worth the stop if you're in the area.
