Private Property ?
Other Thoughts: When I arrived at the disc golf course, I parked in the nearby parking lot, which is part of the school grounds. I got out of my car and was grabbing my disc golf bag out of my trunk, when a security guard drove up in a golf cart. He said "this is private property, you will have to leave." I said " I would like to play the disc golf course". He said " Sorry, you can't"
He was a nice guy, just doing his job. We talked a little about disc golf and then I headed to the Livermore DGC about 20 minutes away.
BUMMER, I was looking forward to playing this course. I liked the idea that I could tee from anywhere I wanted. I was going to follow "swatso's" tips and make up a new hole for the missing basket. It would be a great place to practice for a newbie like me.

not worth the trip
Pros: there was nobody there on a saturday afternoon.
mostly open with a couple trees depending on your approach
Cons: there are only 2 baskets, not 7 as advertised, and they're about 50-60 feet away from each other.
Other Thoughts: good place to practice your ace shot if you're local, but not worth going out of your way for.

Baskets are in the gound
Pros: Baskets are newer mach III and you will always find nice people around. Although there are no water fountains on the course there are several in the school. When you are there you will most likely be the only person playing unless you brought someone. Lush manicured grass and large mature trees help dress up the course.
Cons: No teepads to speak of and no real layout kinda make this more of a practice area with nice baskets than a dg course. One or more of the baskets has been stolen in the past year and has not been replaced. No tee signs and no direction will leave you looking for the baskets like a where's waldo book. I personally don't drink on the course but for all that do that's not allowed here because you are on a school campus.
Other Thoughts: If you and whoever you are playing with establish tee areas for each hole and play your own course this can be fun but some of the basket locations leave you thinking where can I possibly set a tee area at and make this fun. I would take a long lunch form work and really just come out and work on hitting 200' and in shots which the basket located by the front parking lot is great for. Since there is no practice basket we just used the first basket to warm up on.
I don't really feel like this is a real course but you can make one up and get in some good shots if you want to. just add some tee signs and we can do the rest, but thank you to the school for putting baskets in the ground.

Maybe For Safari!
Pros: Well, there are nine baskets. The area back where #'s 4-9 actually is fairly nice for a course or a safari layout. We got to watch their football team workout which is interesting, because they use a big drum for the snap count.
Cons: The baskets are split between the first three and the last six with a long walk in between. There isn't really a course here which is too bad because it wouldn't take much to throw in some teepads. There was a big soccer tourney across the street making the first three baskets almost unplayable.
Other Thoughts: Probably not worth stopping for unless you are a "Died in the Wool Course Bagger." Hey, I resemble that previous remark!
If you're not a serious bagger of courses or hearing impaired, Skip CSFD and continue south and play Hellyer and Del La Raza, two nice little nine holers in San Jose.

Not realy a course
Pros: 9 baskets.
Cons: No actual tee pads and mostly open athletic fields.
No clear beginning or end. Baskets too close at times.
Other Thoughts: Other than 9 baskets I would not call this a DG course just a school that has 9 baskets strewn around their grounds.
Unless you live in the general area skip it and go somewhere else.
The previous reviewer did a nice job of trying to create an actual flow to the course.
