-Underbrush unmanageable during certain seasons (very hard to find discs)
-Unrealistic idea of risk/reward
-Perverts hanging out in their cars by hole one, waiting for people to head down to the nude beach.

Rooster Rock east is pretty ridiculous! There are a few fun holes, namely holes four through six. The rest of the holes are pretty unrealistic. For instance, hole three is over 400 feet long, and the fairway through the trees is about eight feet wide, the whole way there. Getting a four on that hole is pretty awesome, getting a five or a six, pretty normal. Also, hole eight is kind of stupid, especially during the summer when the stinging nettles are five feet tall, and are everywhere off of the fairway. Actually, the nettles are everywhere all over the last five holes of this course. Hole two is another hole without a fairway. For hole two, you drive into a grove of trees with no reasonable gaps, while the basket is about 100 on the other side. You can throw a seemingly great drive and get stopped in front of the trees. Meanwhile, another player can throw the ugliest shot imaginable, and park the hole. Not good design.
Rooster Rock East can be a fun course in winter when the underbrush is held back, you just have to expect to take some HIGH scores and accept it before you start. I will not play it in summer or early fall, and I'll never consider competing on the course.
