Not Bad

Pros: -Good variety in distances and pin locations.
- Course is maintained enough to keep the fairways clear.
Cons: -Very little signage.
- I'm sure it wouldn't be bad after your first time playing the course but it's sometimes hard to find your way from hole to hole and some holes are longer and it takes a while to find where you need to throw.

hilly fun

Pros: fun, steep, elevation

well defined, wooded fairways

good mix of shot shapes

adequate baskets and tees

nice looking woods

another 18 hole course on site
Cons: a couple holes are right by the noisy freeway, spoils the experience a bit

missing or unreadable signs, made for some confusion and waste of time

not much variety in length of holes
Other Thoughts: I love hilly, wooded courses like this, I really enjoyed it. I would have enjoyed it a lot more with matching, updated signage.

I really appreciate the contrast between this and the blue course which is longer, flatter and more open

Pros: Challenging course with a lot of structure to work around. Full shade makes this a great course for the summer months.
Cons: Lots of structure to work around can make this a frustrating course for those new to the game. There is a lot of ground debris (pine needles, dead leaves, etc.) that are great at making discs disappear. Course layout can be confusing to those who have never played it.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a fun course. It always presents a challenge and requires more finesse than power.

Pros: lots of birdies; wooded but with fair lanes; shady; good elevation changes; need your forehand and your backhand for this course.
Cons: hard to navigate the course; baskets are hard to see sometimes; two holes have a fence that's easy to throw your discs over; lots of rogue tee boxes.

 Fun short course

Pros: The course plays through a hillside forest. Most holes have fun elevation, with a great mix of uphill and downhill holes and a few side hill shots mixed in. Nearly all the holes are wooded, with varying widths of faiirways, so it plays pretty technical. Most holes have plenty of trees waiting off the fairway to make errant shots tough to recover from, and there is a little brush throughout the course to add challenge but not enough to risk losing discs.

There is a nice mix of hole shapes. The course is short, but because the lines you have to hit are mixed up throughout the course it doesn't feel repetitive. I threw mostly putters here, but had a ton of fun working lots of different lines in my short game. The pvc "tree" hanging in one fairway was a fun touch to add an extra challenge on that hole. The tees are concrete, and are in pretty good shape. The course map online is accurate and helpful here.
Cons: The course is really short, so it's not all that challenging. Better players won't need much more than a putter here, and it's pretty much deuce or die. There are some odd spots in terms of navigation, and the signage is inconsistent and not in great shape. The baskets are older, and don't catch all that well, there are some that are worse than the rest scattered around the course.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun disc golf complex, with this shorter course complemented by the tougher blue course. I had a great time playing this one, with tricky elevation shots and some creative pin placements it's got a lot of unique shots. It's a great course to learn on, technical enough that you'll need to try different shots but not long enough to be frustrating. True beginners might find it a little tight and punishing. Experienced players won't find it all that challenging, but it's a fun warm up to the blue course and definitely worth playing while you're here.

 good little wooded course

Pros: -Course is located in a huge park with several facilities and activites.
-The course area of the park seems almost fully dedicated to dg except for only a couple holes near the visitors center and a couple shelters (12-14) but even on those, the holes are far enough away to not interfere with other park activities.
-The terrain is fairly unique with hills and flats full of evergreens and red stone all over the ground.
-Nice trapezoidal teepads
-Course has a good mix of hyzer anhyzer and straight shots, although if straight shots are thrown, all holes are easy pars.
-Good mix of uphill downhill and flat holes
- A couple nice risky greens here, hole 10 for example is perched on a ridge with a 15 ft drop on one side and a 5+ ft drop on the other.
- Cool hole number 5 or 6 is a straight open shot across a small ravine, but a large pvc pipe hanging in the middle of the fairway, blocking the obvious straight route
-Another course right on site
-Rather uninformative kiosk at hole 1, but a kiosk nonetheless.
Cons: Some navigation issues here, we got turned around a few times, especially around hole 15-16, 10, 18 all of which have teepads in the same vicinity.
-signage is pretty poor, just a 4x4 post with the hole number and length and line painted on. They probably need to be repainted.
-Several concrete pads were seemingly obsolete and unused (around hole 3 I think)
-Course length is a bit lacking, several all wooded courses are now in the 6000' range. There were no holes that made me think about taking a risk with a driver. Most holes in that 240-280 range.
Other Thoughts: Very fun hilly course with several ace runs. I really liked the red rocks all over the place, it was very pretty. We had to park by the shelters above the visitors center and start on hole 12 as the road to hole 1 was closed.

Pros: CHALLENGING!!! If you like a real challening course that demands high driving accuracy, play this course at Burns Park.
Cons: Very hilly and very wooded are understatements. When I was out there some holes were poorly marked.
Other Thoughts: Play the Burns park blue course while you are out there.
