Disc Golf in Paradise
Pros: Beautiful course with lots of grass.
Multiple pin positions on EVERY hole.
Grassy course keeps your discs lasting longer.
Very friendly staff.
Golf carts available on Saturday weekly.
Nice pro shop with great selection of plastic and beer.
Always something new. Pay to play is not a "con" when you can see where the money is going, in my opinion.
Cons: No tee signs. But am told they are on their way.
Ball golfers have right of way. Although they are out numbered by disc golfers.
Gets pretty soggy in winter.
Sprinklers sometimes come on in middle of play. Makes tee pads very slick.
Other Thoughts: The overall setting of this course makes it a phenomenal course. Mountain side golf course with lots of elevation change, tall pine trees and big oaks make for clean refreshing air. As well as the vineyard next door that smells awesome during harvest.
This is must play course.

Picturesque and Serene- A destination course

Pros: All the fun of disc golf with all the class of ball golf. Gorgeous fairways, vineyard views, and a lovely patio to enjoy a cold beverage before a round. The new pro shop has a great disc selection and a knowledgable proprietor. Now that the course designers have installed more pin positions there is even more distance and variation. Nice tunnel shots on holes 10 and 12 and a twisty wooded fairway in hole 3... Not sure what the other reviewer was talking about. Almost all the holes have trees in play and I have yet to par hole "elevy". A nor cal must play!

Pros: Now that there are baskets and concrete tees, this is one of the best courses in Northern California. Plays across beautiful, mostly open, ball-golf fairways. But don't worry, there are a couple technical holes with trees to think about too. There are a good variety of uphill/downhill and right/left turning shots required, and a pond and creek at the bottom add some interesting water hazard. Scorecards with a map are available at the clubhouse, as well as drinks, snacks, and discs.
Cons: Disc golf is restricted to certain times of day and by golf tournaments, so be sure to call ahead. It can be a bit swampy at the bottom in the Winter but definitely playable.
Other Thoughts: Look out for golf balls! This is also a 9-hole ball golf course and we all play at the same time. Also, be careful not to shoot into the vineyard.
The owners Ana and Tony are super nice. Be sure to tell them you found them on DGCR!

Great time in Paradise

Pros: This is an 18 hole disc golf course that plays on a nine hole ball golf course. There are concrete tee pads and nice Mach III baskets. Almost every hole has a bench and there are plenty of trash cans. Most holes now have alternate pin locations and there are more to come. The course is relatively easy to navigate and there are maps on the score cards that are available at the club house. There is beer for sale along with a DG pro shop at the clubhouse. Owners are good folks. The smell of the grapes near harvest time is amazing.
Cons: If you have a problems paying 4$ for an awesome round then it is a con. There are no signs indicating distances at the tee pads. Some areas can get pretty swampy during the wet season.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course for the area and well worth the drive up the ridge to play. Weekly's are on Saturday at 2:00pm if you are interested and carts are available only during the weekly. You as a disc golfer must yield to ball golf players and don't bring your dog. There has been an issue with players throwing their discs into the adjacent vineyard and retrieving their discs. Many times the fence gets broken and the neighbors get pissed. Please respect the course and the neighbors and don't climb the fence. Lots of blackberry is being cleared for more friendly play. This courses hosts the finally for Shasta Series in May and holds the Lava Creek Classic C-tier in February.
