Pros: It's a really nice little course. The course is clean and kep up with nicely manicured lawns. Difficulty is targeted at beginners.
Cons: The course is pretty boring. None of the holes are worth getting excited about. If you want a challenge this course isn't it.
Other Thoughts: I don't know why everyone rated this course so poorly. The course is red level, that means it's supposed to be really easy. There is no need to rate it a 1 just because you can drive 300+ feet. At least you won't see any bums.
Field work for your approach shots or long putts
Pros: 1) Nice short course for beginners.
2) Long teepads.
3) Teepads numbered (spray painted number in the forward, right corner).
4) Can finish in under 20 minutes.
5) Course has 9 baskets.
6) Course is far away from the main course, so interference from other park goers is minimal.
7) Hole 1 and 9 are close to one another.
Cons: 1) Only one sign, but it has nothing of importance on it except hole number.
2) Parking on the street is the only option if you want to be close to the course.
3) Very few obstacles to challenge golfers.
4) Hole 8 is not in the flow of the course. It lies off in the long vegetation.
5) Teepads are narrow.
Other Thoughts: Park was easy to find but the course took a while to find. The course flows around one end of the park. It now has 9 baskets, but needs signage. Every time that I've played or practiced here, winds were blowing (north to south). Looks like the course could be improved due to the vast amounts of unused space at the park. Recommend parking near the the bend of Jerry Littel Way (close proximity to Hole 4 teepad), since Hole 1 is around the bend.
The Sacramento RT (#11) Bus stops about 2/3 mile from the course, around a 20+ minute walk.

Pros: No real Pros. I suppose there was no traffic. OK if youre a beginner and just want to throw discs without worrying about losing a disc in a tree. Wife and kids can play on playground when you're out playing a round (if you can call it that)
Cons: Scattered baskets with no direction on where to go next. In the middle of big grass park. Missing baskets and signs..
Other Thoughts: None

This Used To Be My Below Average DGC!
Pros: There must have been a course here a one time. I doubt if was a very good course even when all the signs and baskets were still standing as if seems like a very un-imaginitive design. The park is a large greenbelt surrounded by a housing development. The grass is some of the thickest and lushest I've seen anywhere. More on this lushness in the Cons section.
The baskets that were left were are in decent shape. The park has these large oversized concrete teepads. Way too much teepad for this course.
Cons: Baskets 1,2 8 and 9 all are missing. The signs are gone for 1 and 2. Navigation is a nightmare.
The wonderful, lush, green grass was completely soaked at 10:30 AM. My feet were soaked on a 95 degree day. Doesn't California currently suffer from a water shortage?
Other Thoughts: Now for the first bit of good news. That is, no-one has stolen any of these extra-long teepads yet. Wait, that's the only good news surrounding this sorry ass excuse for a course. Don't waste your time unless you're just a died in the wool course bagger, like myself.
Since the course is only about 60% intact, I'll give it a rating of about 60% of the 1.0 it otherwise deserves.

Pros: um...it was easy...
1st course of 3 we hit today...good warm up course I guess...we only played 6 or so holes and left...
Cons: way to open...jogging trail next to the course...waited for ppl to pass so as to not hit them.
Just really wasn't feeling like I was at a disc golf course...
Other Thoughts: My girlfriend (very new) even said it wasn't fun and or challenging...
with some work in landscaping I feel that it has potential...

Once was enough
Pros: If you live across the street and want to practice putting, this park might have a use. The grass is green..... haha
Cons: Missing baskets, short holes. The layout is not well thought out. There are no obstacles.
Other Thoughts: Not worth the 10 minute drive I took. There are other parks which offer a much better experience than this one. If I lived in the neighborhood I would practice short range shots (sans obstacles as there are none) and then go to a different course for real games.

For local practice or hardcore baggers only
Pros: It's there & somewhat resembles a small DG course. Zero DG traffic. Good enough teepads & baskets. Irony is that there is enough space for 18 holes, so with a little funding & a much better layout, this place could actually be decent.
Cons: Baskets 1, 2, & 8 are missing. Flat, short, & minimal baby trees. Frustrating parking logistics. Signposts, yes, but rarely a sign to go along with it.
Other Thoughts: My recommendation on where to park is at the end of Honor (left turn at park) in front of the nice gated house. Do not park in the parking lot unless you want to do much unnecessary walking.
Fun Factor: C-

Pros: plenty of parking and other amendities. short holes for the most part. great for a beginner
Cons: Because of lack of use by disgolfers, baskets get removed by vandals and thieves alot. short holes and lines not conductive to experienced players. some areas of park have heavy non-discgolfer traffic
Other Thoughts: we are working on a redesign to make this a 18 hole course. depending on the area givin for the redesign, this course can go from advanced intermediate course thru pro. we will keep you updated. hope to have the new design in by the end of may 2011

Pros: City park, with nice grass, concrete tee pads
Cons: #2 basket missing. Unable to locate tee pad for 1. Signs are mostly missing. Could play the whole thing with a putter
Other Thoughts: Lame course. Looks like the city needed to throw in some baskets to add it to the list of things to do at the park. DO NOT go out of your way to play here. Not worth it.
