Pros: *I played 200+ courses, this was best 9-hole course I ever played.
*Plenty and lot of technical shots and accurate shots.
*Has plenty parking, water and restroom.
*Plenty of trees for shade (away from sun)
*Course is well designed!
*Cool and very clear tee signs and easy to navigate.
Cons: *This course is not recommend for beginners.
*Many trees can swallow your disc.
Other Thoughts: *7 out of 9 holes are 400+ feet away!
*I was glad that designer chose quality over quantity. This course can easily design smaller and crowded 18 hole course. But they chose better and challenging 9-hole course instead. Kudos to them!

Pros: Great flow to this course with Plenty of challenging shots. Every hole is tough with plenty of obstacles to get in your way and many lines to throw to the basket. This course will require backhand, forehand, tommy and thumber, as well as any other way you might want to take your shot. Holes are long without being too long. Great signage and synthetic tee pads, garbage cans and benches. Practice Basket, Bathrooms and plenty of parking. Ground is great for skipping your disc. Playing this course will make you a much better player! Locals are friendly and welcoming.
Cons: Only 9 holes, but pair it with Hellyer 1/2 a mile away and you got 18. No real elevation to this course. Watch for the occasional Poison Oak. Can get a little busy but that's because this is a great course!
Other Thoughts: Great, tough course, not an easy hole here. Just recently it has been approved to stay open all year long! Very enjoyable place to play, come throw if you are in the area!

Pros: Technical yet accessible. 9 holes, yet does not get boring; always full of challenges.
Cons: Only 9 holes. Course closes in winter, however, it has been open longer. There is not really any space for more holes, however I wish the course were 18.
Other Thoughts: Having played this course since it's inception I am continually challenged and entertained by this course. Whether playing a quick 9 or two rounds, the course is always full of new lines and challenges. Playing this course a lot has seemed to have improved my game.

Pros: -Great practice/picnic area with many bench's and bbq's+decent b-room. Plenty of parking
-Very challenging holes with plenty of distance
-Down in a small creek valley so its fairly protected from the wind or heat.
-minimal crowds(didn't have to wait once)
Cons: -LOTS of poison oak!
-Water+poison oak along 3 fairways that will punish you if you go wayward
-closed in the winter
-more poison oak..
-
Other Thoughts: Whoa... super long holes. only 1 hole under 300ft. really laid back out there. no crowds, no waiting. LOTS and lots of PO. watch out. many holes have small initial windows to get through. playing here often will definitely make you a better player.

 Best 9 holes

Pros: Secluded yet easily accessible, VERY challenging holes, a great place to greatly improve your game without going to faraway courses. Restrooms, bbq, and a good sized parking lot are available.
Cons: Closed from October to April because the city deems the park a flood plain. The SVDGC is working with the city to hopefully remove that label and keep it open year round.
