Fun little course
Pros: This is a fun little nine hole course on the top of a ridge overlooking Eastman Lake. The whole course has great views of the surrounding hills and the lake, along with the Sierra Nevada mountains. There is not a lot of elevation on the course itself, but there is a slight hill on many of the holes, along with some cool rock piles and old oaks to shoot around.
The whole course area had been mowed when I played, so there was no real rough to worry about fighting through or losing a disc in. This also made it easier to see where you were walking, and avoid the holes in the ground. The tees were large gravel filled boxes, and were in decent shape.
Cons: Though the old oaks were cool, there weren't enough of them to provide real obstacles, leaving the majority of the holes basically wide open with only one or two trees to avoid. This made the course get a little repetitive.
Some of the gravel boxes weren't in good shape, and made for some treacherous footing. The animal holes throughout the course also made for footing issues throughout the course. In a few places, there were patches of plants that were filled with seed pods that stuck in clothes and shoes, and were very difficult to get rid of.
The course could have used a little more signage, as there were a few places that it wasn't entirely obvious where to go next. The tee numbering was only visible at short range, and a few of the baskets were tucked behind trees or rocks. This meant extra walking to figure out the course layout the first time around.
Other Thoughts: This course was a decent little course that's worth playing if you're in the area, but not worth going too far out of your way for. It is pretty beginner friendly, with no real chances of losing discs, and no holes that were too technical, so inexperienced players could be successful here. There was not enough challenge to make it very interesting to many higher level players, but it did have some really nice views.
