Pros: -Nice DISCatcher baskets
-Fantastic facility for zeroing in on strategy and practicing
-Instructions listed at large circle
-Endless safari options, as that is kind of the point here
Cons: -Not a course
-Not DG exclusive
-Parking lot was very busy
Other Thoughts: OK first off, I rated this course for what it is. It advertises itself to be a practice facility, not a course; and as the only practice facility in all of Southern California, I rated it as 'good' because its just that, 'good.'
This is a large grass field surrounded on 3 sides by about 15 foot tall, lightly wooded hills. Most of the pins rest on these hills, and a few are on the flat area. All pins are obtainable from the large, circular driving platform, and some are far enough to require a driver.
At the opposite end of the park, near the more distant pins, there is what we presumed to be another 'normal sized' tee pad near the base of the stairs. This was great for driving back to the pins closer to the front of the park.
While the pins are numbered, there are no holes. You pick wherever you want to play from, to whatever basket. That's it! With the area's lack of exclusivity, this worked out great as we were able to snake our way around other park goers without thinking we were missing out on any particular lines.
Others have suggested a 9 hole course setup here, but the fact of the matter is, is that there is not enough room for that. It would be too cramped, and without any DG exclusivity, it would be impossible to play. Being a practice course, you play until you are done playing.
I actually really liked this facility and wish they were all over the place. I mean, it is designed for you to empty your bag on the same shot. You are never in anybodies way, you can relax, and you are practicing with REAL pins in a public area. Residents of Rancho Cucamonga have a great opportunity to hone in on their throws here before going to any of their 18 hole courses, all of which require a fee. I would be proud to have this if I lived in the area.

Pros: Beautiful California Weather!!! I miss this place! Tried it out while I was on vacation there last summer. It was quite hot, but I enjoyed thoroughly to practice my drives, mids and putting. It was good just to get out and have this empty open area to practice in. Back in New England, we don't really have any places like this, so it was a treat.
Cons: It is, just like the title says, only a PRACTICE COURSE. It is large enough to get your drives in shape and all that, but to consider any type of real game is near impossible. Just one big concrete section by the entrance. I didn't happen to notice the tee pads that others have said are there, that must be a new addition, or maybe I personally did not venture too far away to find them. In the hot CA sun, you'll be looking for a bit of shade to cool off, not much to be found on the practice course. Bring Water!
Other Thoughts: All in all, it is a sweet little place to throw your discs around and work out your game. I would recommend to anyone to try out and especially to bring a beginner or kids to start off with and get used to throwing.
