 Below Average Course w/The Best Signs Ever!

Pros: The course plays clockwise around the perimenter of a park used primarily for soccer. If you are a RHBH thrower, the course is quite a bit easier for you. If you are left handed or throw forehand, watch out. It's a very clean park in a high end city. Great SoCal dessert temperatures. Has lights allowing for night play when the temperature drops. Water fountains around the course. And finally, the best, prettiest, most indestructible signs ever. All the disc golf courses in the world that are in remote or ghetto neighborhoods need signs like these.
Cons: Although this course is needed in this area, this just isn't a great park to try and squeeze it into. Soccer is what this park is designed and mainly used for. I fortunately played in the AM and didn't have to contend with the soccer hordes. As with a couple other courses I've played that play around the perimenter of a park like this, all the holes were basically the same, very repetitive. And holes 5,6, and 7 play along a tall fence with apartments on the other side. If you hyser your throw here, you risk have to scale this fence, if you throw right, you're disrupting the soccer game or practice.
Other Thoughts: The designers of this course did about all they could here considering the obstacles and obvious problems they had to work around. I applaud them for their time and effort. I hope the disc golfers and the soccer community can co-exist here in some sort of peaceful, harmonious relationship. Maybe burn some candles or incense together!

Pros: Women and men tee boxes (orange and black, respectively)
Signage is great
The park is clean and green
Plenty of amenities like for a picnic
Cons: The course is designed around several soccer fields, and if any are in use, it will affect your round. If you have a good arm then it's possible to fly it over, but regardless hove good you are, you will play through the middle of the field on 8
You also have to contend with families using the park for other means. On hole 2 you play right through a busy bbq pit that always seems to be in use.
For right hand throwers: beware hole 7. If not thrown correctly you will have to jump a cinder block wall which will often leave you with bruised forearms.
Other Thoughts: The course gets a 1.5 solely because its the only course in the desert. I have heard that another course is in the works but nothing has been constructed. Like I said, the course is often extremely busy and makes it difficult to play. I find it easier to play early in the morning or during the summer when you can cook an egg on the sidewalk. If you do play in the summer remember to take water.

Pros: Nice baskets. Perfect concrete tee areas. Perfect ground conditions thanks to constant irrigation. Plenty of parking and nice playground/picnic/bathroom facilities. Many hidden baskets, so it will take a big drive to set you up for a bird. Managable length for newbies.
Cons: Built into a playground / jogging / soccer area, so I imagine you can only play here in the wee hours. Anyone at all using the facilities will be in the way of the shots. Every shot seems to be built for hyzer. It was actually very wet in the morning thanks to irrigation.
Other Thoughts: There's lots of desert out here. Can't someone build something closer to downtown Palm Springs?
