Best course yet
2 Helpful / 5 Not
-27 holes = more DG
-hole variety (forehands, backhands, low canopy shots, open field shots, rolling hills, grass, dirt, pine needles, big distance holes...just about everything)
-teepads are concrete...some of the front ends of the tee pads are scored for extra grip on rainy days
-Santa Maria BBQ pits and the smell of that BBQ
-huge park which is well kept
Cons: -flow could be a bit better at certain spots, but not much to complain about here
-some signs could be better
Other Thoughts: Up to this point I've played 29 courses and I've played here twice now. This is easily the most baller pimp ass course that I've played. Up to this point in time, this is the only course I've awarded 5/5 discs...but this course deserves it. The beautiful weather, the scenery, and the variety of holes make this course very very challenging and entertaining. This course will test you many many times in a variety of ways; the wind, distance, trees, rolling terrain, blind shots, and low canopy shots will all come into play. You start off playing holes with few trees, then midway through the course you play into the woods with many many obstacles and low lying throws. Then you play some open holes (I believe this part is called Soldier Field) where your distance will be tested. You head back into the woods with some elevation changes. Then you finish like you started with holes that have a moderate amount of trees. All in the mean time your driving and putting can be tested here if its windy (I view this as a positive because challenges are fun right?) There is more or less a mix of everything here, but it is an opulent feast for any DG'er. Definitely one of the top courses in California to play. My only complaint is that the flow could be better at some parts and that the signs could be better on some holes...but I'm just nitpicking. Do yourself a favor and play this course, then go eat some local Santa Maria BBQ because it is delicious. Can't wait to play here again. Also play with some locals if you can...the vastness of this course can be disorienting at times even with a course map.

Favorite Course By Far
0 Helpful / 3 Not
Pros: -Great hole length variation
-Multiple basket positions
-Great terrain variation (grass, dirt, wood chips, pine needles)
-Great scenery and tree density variation (Some holes are heavily wooded, some are wide-open fields)
-27 enjoyable, memorable holes
-Not overly crowded at all
-Fun for all skill levels, but a few holes are a bit lengthy
-Feels like you're walking through nature, but not lost in the woods
Cons: -Unless you live in Santa Maria, it's a bit of a drive
Other Thoughts: -Played this course mostly while in college in Santa Barbara, but will absolutely plan on stopping whenever road tripping up and down California.
-If you're ever within 2 hours of this course, it's worth the drive.

Pros: Different terrain every 9 Holes.
Lush HUGE park!
Easy to find pines and pads.
Short and long holes to challenge you.
Signs mark your position, multi-position of pins and distance to pin.
Wide spaces as well as tight trees for challenging saving throws.
Cons: Windy at times.
A few places to lose sight of a disc.
A few places throwing could encounter picnic tables.
No drinking in the park is allowed.Don't get caught. :P
Other Thoughts: I'd love to live near this coarse and play it 5 days a week.
