Pros: Ace runs on every hole, regardless of throwing style. Hole 2 was a little longer (maybe 250'). Some holes had mini cement tees (4' long x 3' wide) with the hole number and an arrow showing the direction to the basket scratched into the cement (was done when it was still wet). Holes without these "mini tees" had a blob of cement in the ground at the tee location with the aforementioned details scratched into it. Some trees to shoot around on a few holes. Well maintained park with facilities on site. Low traffic.
Cons: Extremely short and easy. The "mini tees" don't really work as tees, even if you throw from a standstill. The course plays around a playground and some baskets are really close to it. The whole park area is very small and completely open with only a small amount of younger trees. Some holes play quite close to one another and to the roads surrounding the park. The basket on hole 6 is now missing it's top ring and all of it's chains, leaving only the straight metal pole and bottom basket. Poor layout; could have been done better even with the small area available.
Other Thoughts: This is a course for absolute beginners, maybe even only children beginners, but could be used as a good putting warm-up for the more challenging courses in the area. I don't know what the designer was thinking with the tiny tees, but simple signs and no cement would be more useful. If there were any children playing on the playground conservative shots would be necessary on a few holes. Hole 6 is still "playable" with no chains on the basket, but aces are nearly impossible.

Pros: -Nice baskets
-Great uber-beginner course or ace run course
Cons: No tee signs, the tee boxes aren't really tee boxes, I think they are kind of supposed to be signs/boxes but they don't really work for either.
Other Thoughts: To me it was a waste of resources, but the boy scouts ponied up and put it in which is cool for them. I just wish they picked a better location and ask the local pros for help designing it. If you are reading this then you're into disc golf enough that you shouldn't go to this "course". Go to riverview just about 2-5 miles away.

Pros: Lots of ace runs. Great for working on your up shots. I like it because it is a good place to take new players to teach them and build their confidence. My fiance loves it cause she can shoot under here, lol.
Cons: Tee blocks are a joke.
Other Thoughts: Fun for kids and beginners, Also fun for advanced players to practice short game and have some fun ace runs

 Short Night Time Course

Pros: Lit up at night until park closes at 10. No other Bakersfield course has this. Great for working on your short game at night when it's cooler. Easy to find tees and baskets.
Cons: VERY short course. Experienced players will probably tee off with a putter on all holes but 2. Tiny tees.

Pros: Every hole is an ace run. This course is good for beginners. Its a good course to work on your short game. It has nice restrooms and drinking fountains.
Cons: Too easy. All you need is a putter, maybe an approach disc. This course is not challenging at all. Another Bakersfield course built by someone who has never played disc golf.

Pros: Good for a beginner. Park has been empty the 4 times I've played here. New, Clean bathrooms, picnik area.
Cons: Short, Very short. A couple of holes cross over each other.
Other Thoughts: From the parking lot, Tee #1 it to the left of the restrooms, just past table. There are numerous small trees that will grow into quit a challenge with time. the course has been re-configured, since it was originally built. They moved three holes, two of which were the longest on the course. why I do not understand.
