Pros: + Amazing views
+ Good variety of shots and lengths (200 - 600)
+ Benches and trash cans on most holes
+ Local club is improving it every day
+ Good use of the elevation changes
+ Course loops back to parking area half way through and also ends there
+ Never crowded
+ City mows regularly
Cons: - Poison oak in the more distant rough (being taken care of)
- Without a map or guide it's really difficult to navigate
- Tee pads are still absent from some holes
- No signs yet
Other Thoughts: The main reasons I enjoy this course more than DeLaveaga is because the course is almost always empty and there are no crossing fairways. Some people worry about ticks but I've never seen one out there. Most of the previous reviews were written before the local club did a major overhaul on the course to make it what it is today, although there is still much work to be done.

Pros: Every Shot in the book: long, short, medium, up, down, flat, left, right, excellent design, nice setting, gorgeous oak trees, pin settings, and tee locations. It can be windy (i see that as a positive)!
Cons: Poison Oak (par for this part of the country), tee pads aren't done yet, lots of high grass and weeds. They need to take a bush hog out there and get rid of most of the high stuff, as it's real easy to lose discs.
Other Thoughts: This is a work in progress, and I would like to recognize the fabulous job the Monterey Jellies have done out there: the tournament was fantastic. Championship quality course on fantastic terrain. The normal 27 hole layout is subject to change: 36 is not only possible, but probable as we played it in the tourney.
