Lake Mendocino North

Pros: Nice 4'x8' rubber tee pads on all holes except hole 10 which has a 4'x8' concrete tee pad (maybe more are coming?) and 15 which has a natural (dirt) tee pad. Restrooms near parking. Very basic post style signs next to each tee with hole number and distances. Multiple pin positions. Moderately to heavily wooded. Nice baskets with hole numbers on them. Well placed 'next tee' signs throughout the course where needed. Mostly shorter technical holes. Slight to moderate/heavy elevation change on the course. Hole 10: shorter uphill ace run with concrete tee pad. Hole 13: blind 260' downhill shot. Hole 14: 200' blind downhill shot. Easy to navigate; no map needed. Nice flow to the course with 18 ending where 1 begins. Most holes birdie-able with a good drive, but tight lines are required on many holes. Several ace runs. Several trash cans and picnic tables/benches on the course. Clean course. Close to the lake and the South course which is more challenging.
Cons: Signs are weak. No signs for the disc golf course on the road. Some holes play pretty close to each other. No indicator on the signs showing current pin position. Most holes are rather short. After hole 15 you have to cross 6's fairway.
Other Thoughts: This is now an 18 hole course and from what I read about the original 9 holes, the new holes really add a lot to the course and make it more challenging. When arriving, park in the Pomo A parking area and hole 1 will be right across the street. This is a great warm-up for the South course which has more distance and is overall more challenging. In regards to the poison oak, I really didn't notice much, but I did play in January and I'm not very allergic so I don't notice it as much as other people. Fun course. I will definitely play it again and probably every time I play the South course.
