Pros: This is a challenging course. Plenty of distance and trees to make birdies fairly difficult. The grounds are in decent shape with several bathrooms and adequate parking that the holes wrap back around to around hole 10. This course will challenge your game. About the only thing missing is elevation and water but that doesn't hurt just how good and fun this course is. I spoke with several locals at length and they were extremely helpful and gave plenty of directions. Not too many holes under 300 and that ones that were had enough trees to make birdies tough. Loved the challenge!

I will definitely be back to play this course...of the three I played in Visalia this was the best with the other course on site a close 2nd. Loved having 2 really good courses at the same location. Whoever designed the course did an excellent job with the space. There was a bit more room to work with but extra length isn't really needed.
Cons: Navigation is a little confusing as 1-4 play right around 9-11 (I think I got that right...difficult having only played it once to remember exactly). So I had to do quite a bit of walking to tees I could see only to walk up to the wrong one. A few tee signs were missing and the ground had a lot of ankle twisting potholes. It would be nice if signage had an arrow to point to next tee. The online map is a must and even then still a little confusing the first time through.
Other Thoughts: This course has some seriously good potential with a few minor upgrades. Replacing missing tee signs, filling potholes, and if there was a way to not have the holes overlap so much that would be great...probably no way to do that last one...somehow I missed seeing that anywhere on the site so I thought I would point it out.

When you enter the park, go left at the split for the Championship course and right for the Outback course.

I didn't realize you had to pay to play. That would have been nice to know.

Pros: very open flat course with good use of trees and natural landscape to mix it up. having multiple pin locations is awesome. it makes the course change with you every tee you step up to. fun dog legs and interesting pin locations made it fun all day.
Cons: tee pad locations are difficult to find. some of the tees have you walking back the same way you just came to throw at a different pin. also due to the proximity of some pins it got a little confusing when throwing from the tee pad. a map or better indicators to the next tee would have made this a great course instead of just a good course.
Other Thoughts: being from michigan it was very cool to be playing disc golf and having palm trees all over the course. also i couldn't have asked for better weather to be playing in. i would definately recommend this course from beginner to pro if your in the area. also there is a monster course on the back of this park which i will be trying out later this week.

Pros: Very nice park, clean and facilaties course was good with diffrent pin loactions for each hole with big oaks in play providing shade cover in the hot sun had a beginner with me and he and I found the course challaging and rewarding at same time. sign at tee box with small clear map of hole that shows mulity pin locations
Cons: If you dont have a map you will get lost finding your way to the next tee. muiltible pin locations but no help indicating witch pin location to play for when you cant see most of the holes.
Other Thoughts: I would have had a better round had I known what location to play for. at one point I was ready to give up looking for the tee box. Would be helpful to put indicators on signs to help you on pin locations and witch way to go for next tee box
