Pros: The course plays through a really nice neighborhood park. A few holes have enough trees in play to make you navigate a tight line or a low ceiling, others are mostly open with one or two trees as obstacles. There are a few minor elevation changes that add some fun and variety. The baskets are in great shape, and the tees use the sidewalk so they provide fine footing. The signage is basic, but plenty adequate to figure out where to throw.
Cons: In a few spots it's not at all obvious where to find the next tee, make sure to take a look at the map ahead of time. There are a ton of safety issues here, with holes playing along and over sidewalks, playgrounds and an amphitheater. This park seems pretty popular for families and picnickers so you may have to skip holes if you play on a busy day.

The locals have set up alternate shots. They're a lot of fun, but they make the safety issues even worse by adding crossing fairways and multiple groups throwing at the same basket. Holes 6 and 7 play right at one another sharing the same fairway.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will find this course fun and approachable with enough challenges to push players to learn new disc golf skills. Experienced players can have a really fun putter round here unless the park is busy. Don't come here on the weekend, but it's worth a quick stop on a weekday morning.

  This shouldn't be a golf course

Pros: Markers and tee pads are fairly well marked
Cons: This really shouldn't be a disc golf course. This park was clearly designed to attract people, with great playgrounds, nice ampitheater seating, and a decent lake. The problem is that the park designers crammed so many benches and other "park stuff" in that the disc golf baskets appear to be an afterthought. There are holes that run right next to playgrounds with kids running around, holes that literally have park benches inline with the path of the hole, and holes that are so close to each other that you're forced to dodge discs. I absolutely love little 9 hole courses but this one just shouldn't be. Please keep in mind I played on a Sunday afternoon in beautiful CA weather, my experience would probably have been different on a Tuesday morning after a storm.
