Great course in transition

Pros: Drove in from California and found this excellent course. Lovely setting that really challenges your accuracy through the trees. On this late August Sunday morning there was plenty of parking and no bugs. No other players either. Nice field and gazebo at the end. This is one of my favorite courses of the last two years, out of 50+. Would probably rate it 4.5 but...
Cons: Another review mentions upcoming changes, and there is some info on the sign about what was taking place during the summer of 2016 (now?) to some tees and pin placements. But there is no map there as is stated, and the erroneous map on DGCR has not been replaced. A review from 2014 refers to 6-10 missing signs and being misnumbered. We were befuddled in that section as well. Early and late on the course it was more clear.
Other Thoughts: I realize that such courses are run and supported by volunteers, we do the same in San Jose. And it sounds like the volunteers have been taking care of new concrete tees, some tape arrows on trees, and general course maintenance. Thanks volunteers! And thanks to whoever empties 18 trash cans on occasion. But for a few items that appear to be a year or more in planning, I would have liked to have seen:

1. An updated map online
2. An updated map on the course sign
3. Baskets clearly numbered
4. Creek caution on tee 15

Hopefully new hole signs can have "next tee" indicators. And there are indications that the course name is, or is being changed to, Joel Fletcher Armstrong Memorial Disc Golf Course. Clearing that up would be nice.

Don't know how soon I'll be back since it is 3000 miles from home, but I will definitely be recommending this course to folks who will be in the area.

Pros: Nice lines and a few long drive par 3's The creek makes this course almost relaxing. the grounds keepers do a good job of keeping the course fairly clean and its always a fun course to play.
Cons: Tee's could be better marked and or pro tee's would be nice on some of the shorter holes.
Other Thoughts: Be careful on Hole 15 to not over throw your first or 2nd throw. its about 300' to a un see able drop off to the creek and death of your disc... unless you know the course and or scout the hole first.

Pros: This course uses the grounds very well. Nice long holes make you work your arm to get par.
Cons: Like others have stated, it is quite muddy and you should be ready to get a little dirty. Nothing major as long as it hasn't rained recently. Lots of trees but that's the fun part...always fun to chop trees while playing golf. No really markers to tell you where the next hole is. Must take map if never played, it is easy to miss holes.
Other Thoughts: Great for the family and very popular. Lots of trees but that's the fun part...always fun to chop trees while playing golf.
