Best in the Sacramento Area

Pros: Excellent challenges on every hole make this a course that never leads to boredom. Trees come into play on most every hole, but the design is fair, leaving you with shot options every time.
Cons: The creek could feature greater play, but the great hole lengths and overall design overshadow this one design fault.
Other Thoughts: The best course in the Sacramento area, without question. Besting this place requires a trip to Kirkwood or Napa County.

Pros: Friendly people, great location, good technical basket placement. First three holes play wide open. 4-8 holes play through trees for more technical placement of your shots. Wide open #9 before 10-16 back into trees. #17 is a great hole. #18 can be short or long, depends on basket placement. Great wide open soccer field for tossing around the disc for fun before or after your round. Benches & garbage cans at each hole for convenience.
Cons: Can be busy at times. Playing with a large group (5 or more) can back up the holes a little bit, but not too bad. Water near many holes. Losing your disc is a high possibility, be prepared to "fish it out" of some murky mucky "water".
Other Thoughts: Overall, a great place to play after work or on the weekends. Teaching my kids to play here has been great. Never gets boring playing this course. Picnic area to rest at after #9. Bring your snacks, pack some water on those warmer days. Need gear? Final 9 shop on the walk in. Snacks and gear at good prices.

Pros: Positive and prominent DG culture. Excellent flow and layout; course played quite fast for a decent length 18 on a somewhat crowded weekday. Dedicated DG space is always great. Awesome mix of driving options & lanes. Nice combination of longer & shorter holes. 18 is a really nice finishing hole. Never got too lost.
Cons: Adding distances to each teesign would be a big plus. Flat to minimal elevation changes. A printable map of the layout would've been helpful.
Other Thoughts: Back 9 tougher than front 9. This course reminded me of a nicer, longer version of Mackey in Sac. Chummy locals were nice enough to point me in the right directions, but never offered to join up.
==================
Uniqueness: B+ (almost as nice as Shady Oaks...almost)
Difficulty: B+ (perfect amount of trees; flat)
Fun Factor: A- (super layout & flow; fun hole designs; mellow)
Aesthetics: A (clean & well maintained; gracefully matured)
----------------------
Overall: A-

 Great, long course

Pros: Very fun, yet challenging course with lots of variety throughout. Bench and garbage cans at most holes. Seems to be a lot of good players here, rarely get stuck behind someone slow. Many different pin locations, usually changed at least every 2 weeks.
Cons: Would be nice to have a pin location marker, as some holes can be blind. Some stinky swamp areas, which like to eat up discs. Not much elevation change.
Other Thoughts: This is an all around great course, and usually not as busy as Shady Oaks. The course can be super long too, depending on pin placement, but always fun.

Pros: Nice Tee pads and all baskets at holes.
Can have dogs on leash.
Benches and tee signs at tees.
Gorgeous oak trees and open area. No other games or general public in course area most times. Course is set away from main part of the park activities.
Variety of distances and throws
Clean park except at tees- pick up your butts smokers.
has some creek type water hazards at some holes. Good oppurtunitys for birdies and maybe an ACE. Generally plays like an intermediate course with a mellow feel.
Cons: Can be crowded on any day, at any time due to it being one of the best courses in the Sacramento Valley. Sacramento lacks good courses in big parks. Plan to follow and be followed here. No distance info. or direction signs for next tee and all the cig.butts at tees suck! Pack your mud boots in winter or wet season.
Other Thoughts: Enjoyed the course very much and we will return. Who ever was the person/persons who obtained permission for a course in this awesome city park, thank you.

Pros: Great course with variety of shots and conditions. open fields near bye to stretch it out first

Other Thoughts: New tees and pin locations on the way rumor has it

Pros: pretty well maintained, all ppins have 2 or 3 positions, clean(ish) bathrooms, elevation fun all over the place.
Cons: seems to have been over populated the past month, awsome signs with no map(length on the back of them with sharpie), if played toomuch it gets repetitive and boring.
Other Thoughts: needs maps of holes bad.

beware all water around here, it reeks horribly.

 My home course, what can I say

Pros: Great mix of short and long holes, multiple pin positions per hole, holes changed regularly, each hole has benches, concrete tees, and trash cans
Cons: Usually always crowded, dusty, close proximity to rest of park/joggers always in the way, windy, reed that grab your skin and cut you and give you a rash
Other Thoughts: I've played all the local courses and this one is definitely my favorite. Always challenging and the creek on hole 3 is a nice challenge. There usually some large groups on younger kids and lots of pot smoking/beer drinking if you aren't into that kind of stuff. Also, the pictures of the course are completely wrong, they updated all the holes a while back and I couldn't recognize any of them.

 Good all around course

Pros: There is a lot good about this course. The big grassy field is nice to just bomb your way to the first tee. Though I usually skip the practice tee before the round, after you play the course a few times and realize you have wound your way around, it can make for a good #19 hole if not too busy. The course is a gradual progression from easier shots to more complex, though tee placement can effect this immediately, or later on. That is the one VERY nice thing about this course, the tees are changed frequently and all the information is located on the back of the sign, all except where the tee is located on a particular day. For the most part, you can either spot it, or it probably won't matter. I've never experienced any of the Sacramento "thug mentality" here, everyone has always been cordial and polite, though you do occasionally run into some inebriated players.
Cons: If there at the wrong time, the course can be busy. Also, be sure to bring water, there is no fountains around and the Sacramento weather in the summer can be very hot.
Other Thoughts: All in all, this is a excellent course, with challenges for newbs and pros alike. I've never done it myself, but I know they hold a disc golf tournament frequently at this course.

 Better Than Shady Oaks

Pros: Most all of the pros listed below I found. Additionally, the layout of the course is better than Shady Oaks because it has moderate vegetation. Many of the holes have just enough trees to help with imagination of shots without snuffing your accuracy or game. In other words, the holes are difficult but the baskets seem more reachable than at Shady Oaks. Good variation of hyzer and anhyzer shots. Trash cans at every hole.
Cons: Signage is poor. Pin placement maps are located on the back of the hole signs (took me about 5 holes to figure that our). The pin placement signs however do not indicate where the specific pin is at on that day (at least I didn't see that). Most of the pin placement signs are faded.
Other Thoughts: Shady Oaks gets all the play in Sacramento, usually. But I've played Shady Oaks many times and my first round at Rocklin was better than all my rounds at SO. Well worth the drive.
