Well that's 4$ and an hour of my life I'll never get back...
Pros: - Close to I-5
- Onsite camping
- Beautiful areas around holes 1-4
- Creek flowing through holes 1 and 4 add a little bit of challenge and add to the scenery
- Lots of potential for a much better course to be made here
- Downhill on hole 2 adds at least a little bit of elevation change
- Map available, though not very good.
- Playground available for the kids, though not the safest
- Vault toilets in between holes 1,4, and 9
Cons: - … Where to start …
- Short poorly designed course, most holes are less than 200' and straight ahead
- Area around holes 1-4 are overgrown with a wide variety of plants including A LOT of Poison Oak
- Natural tees marked with 4x4 posts sunken into the ground. The #'s on the tee markers don't match the map, there was probably a redesign sense the markers were put in.
- Map was poorly done. A few holes they mixed up the tees and pins.
- Holes 5-7 weren't marked at all, just some baskets at the edge of a field, and the area around one of the baskets was surrounded by waist high grass
- No bridges to cross the creek
- The previously mentioned playground is right next to hole 9, and a kid could get hit with a miss thrown disc
- Some holes play really close to some camping sites and are potentially dangerous
- Picnic table siting over hole 1's tee pad
- Hole 2's tee pad is small and uneven
- Homemade baskets are getting old and rusty
- No signage
- 4$ to play this?
Other Thoughts: It's truly sad that this is as poor quality a course as it is. There is plenty of potential here for a great 9 hole course, maybe even a good 18 hole course, but it is being wasted away with a lack of care and poor design. I started to get worried when I walked up to where the tee for 1 was supposed to be according to the map, and found a picnic table siting over the tee area for hole 1. The map was done by someone that didn't fully get the concept of map making. They have multiple holes marked wrong on the map, mixing up their markings for tees and baskets. You will have to spend some time searching for tee pads, some of which don't exist as far as I could tell. And don't expect the tee markings you do find to match the #'s on the map. There was probably a redesign sense they were originally put in. The creek that plays through holes 1 and 4 was shallow enough to ford sense there were no bridges to cross, though the rocks in it were covered in slick slime. After you play hole 1 you have to climb up the hill to the right to find hole 2's tee pad. The tee pad is short, uneven, and points to the wrong basket. Holes 3 and 4 are easy enough to find, but hole 4 has had a tree growing in between the tee and the basket that hasn't been trimmed in far too long. There is a route for a lefty hyzer or a righty flick or anhyzer, but not a very good one. You have to walk past a few campsites to find holes 5-7. None of these holes seem to have tee markers anywhere, so I took the opportunity to play them as safari holes and actually give myself a chance to air out some discs. Holes 8 and 9 were squeezed in between camping sites, and beginners would have a chance of hitting a campsite or person. Hole 9 played right next to a playground making it unplayable if kids are playing there. Overall I would say this course isn't worth playing unless they give it a complete overhaul.
