Ok park course

Pros: The course plays through a nice grassy park with scattered mature trees. There are a few holes with lower ceilings that make you work a low line. A few holes have tighter lines so you will have to have some basic line shaping skills to score well. The course doesn't have too many conflicts between holes or with other park uses. The park is nicely maintained, and the tees and baskets are in nice shape.
Cons: This course is flat and pretty straightforward. There aren't a lot of really tight shots, and most holes are straight ahead. Without a ton of distance variety, things get a little repetitive and there's not a whole lot of different types of challenges. A few holes bring the park road into play, it didn't seem to get much traffic but it's still not something I like to see in course design. The signage is inconsistent, with several missing and others not showing the current pin position when I played. There are some spots where you'll need a map the first time to figure out where to go next.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will find this course very approachable. There are enough trees that you have to work a little, but no punishment for errant shots and the lengths are very reasonable. More experienced players won't find much challenge, it's a straightforward quick round that makes a nice warmup for the other course onsite.

Pros: Shady, concrete tee boxes, hole info on every hole, all grass. Usually pretty empty, unless its a tourney week. Also is a great park that you can hang out with family and friends and BBQ and put back some beers. I RECOMMEND!!
Cons: Hole 6 is kind of a jungle, other than that its a pay to play if someone is at the booth. Six dollars is the amount. Also its closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. If it was free I would be out there everyday. Also for more skilled players, there are no hazards or elevation changes However, a challenging course is 2 minutes walk from this course.
Other Thoughts: Great course to play, especially if you want to play it a couple times and BBQ and hang out with family/friends. I go here quite often and have enjoyed it every time.

 Very green very nice!

Pros: Green grass on every hole makes you feel like you are on a ball golf course.
Signs on every tee.
Concrete tee pads.
Multiple pin placements.
Lots of trees of many varieties.
Creative use of roads as OB to make holes more challenging and risky.
Bathrooms, water ( spigot at bathrooms) and plenty of parking.
Cons: No elevation changes.
The flow from #9 to #10 is a bit odd.
No benches at all.
Visalia is 4 hours from where I live.
It was hot as heck, use a big hat, sunscreen and drink water!!
Other Thoughts: Played the End of Trail Classic, great tournament.
This is a course that would be packed if it was not in the middle of the California Cental Valley south of Fresno. If this course was anywhere closer to LA, SF, SJ or Sac it would be overrun.
If you come to visit Sequoia and Yosemite NPs you need to play this course and its younger sister the Perry Outback.
Great disc golf, roller city!

Pros: Beautiful park! Lot's of trees, grass, and technicals. We brought our little grill and took a break to cook up some hotdogs midway through the game. At certain times, there is a river that runs through the park. You know where every "T" is by looking for the blue trash cans.
Cons: The river ate our discs!! Between hole 1 and 4 or 5, I think, the outback is dry! No grass.
Other Thoughts: Great park to play in and spend most of the afternoon at.

 nice course

Pros: Fun course with a fun layout, alot of different lines to take, and great helpful local's
Cons: Grass, Grass, and more Grass at will eat your disc alive if you release to low, roller's not an option on 90% of the holes, the Grass is thick and wet(they water it alot), And Tree's, Tree's, Tree's, and just like with the Grass, you release to high and your gobbled up by the Tree's.
Other Thoughts: Overall a fun course, just remember to bring plenty of socks if you plan on playing in the morning.

Pros: Short distance from pin to next tee pad, Nice baskets. Lots of different lines on each hole. Lots of shade and amenities.
Cons: I wouldnt call this course technical, more like cluttered. Just plain to many trees on some holes, it takes away the skill factor and replaces it with a luck factor. Some signs are missing. Park was poorly kept up, everything from muddy to dusty, tall grass in desperate need of mowing.
Other Thoughts: Nice course overall, championship is probably reaching a bit. Keep the grass trimmed and take out a few trees and it could easily live up to its name. Oh and Please keep the gaurd station stocked with maps, this course will make you dizzy trying to find tees without one.

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.
