Pros: The course plays through a beautiful park filled with large mature redwood trees and scattered areas of brush. Some other smaller trees are mixed in. The trees are used to make some cool tunnel shots and low ceiling fairways. The design does a pretty good job of forcing a mix of left and right turning shots, with chances to throw lots of different shot shapes throughout the round. You'll need a pretty good arsenal of skills to score well here.

I liked the variety of tighter technical shots with brushy rough waiting to punish errant shots and more open holes with just a few trees to avoid and a chance to air out a drive. There is a pretty good mix of hole lengths, I used all the discs in my travel bag here.
Cons: Navigation is pretty tricky here. There are no signs, and the only markers for the tee locations are ground level boards. Most of these were a bit overgrown with grass when I played making it even tougher to find them. Some of the targets are just tape on trees, a couple of those were missing or hard to find.

There are a few holes in the middle of the course that play over or next to one another, making for some potential safety issues. This park is pretty heavily used by dog walkers and other pedestrians, you'll probably have to wait several times during your round for the fairways to clear.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed several of the holes here, and there aren't too many throw away shots. It's definitely worth a stop if you're in the area, especially with the collection of California Redwoods. Beginners will find some of the more technical holes a little punitive, but otherwise the course should be pretty approachable. Experienced players will have to have a diverse skill set to score well, though most of the holes are deuceable with good shots.
