Pros: New courses are always challenging, but this one is particularly challenging to your short game. There are many baskets between 200 to 300 feet, and because of the trees and elevation changes your short game is really challenged here. You'll get great practice at deciding to finesse your mid-range discs to make a hole, or just throwing your drivers at less power than you might be used to, depending on where you normally play. The setting is beautiful.
It's good to play with a regular your first time, as the locals mix up the tees and actually create 18 unique baskets.
Cons: Dirt/mud tees; Best to play with a local for your first time otherwise it's difficult to know where some tees are located; Cars and people can get in the way, especially on weekends

Pros: It was close when I used to live there, great weekly doubles, nice locals, not very crowded, good place to practice using your putter/mid range. you can play a lot of holes without throwing your arm out.
Cons: not a lot of driver shots unless you know local tees or safari tees, picnicers can make for hazards. I watched a kid get knocked out one day from a disc to the back of the neck. Pretty intense moment, but he was ok.
Other Thoughts: go to the weeklies, great group of people

Pros: Good for beginners, very short. Good place to use your mid-range and putter. Hard to lose a disc.
Cons: VERY short, not very challenging and seems to have been installed as an afterthought.
Other Thoughts: If you're gonna give it a try get there early in the AM. The course plays thru picnic tables and play areas.

Pros: -Shady course, great for a hot summer day

-Tee signs are clearly marked

-18 holes if you play short and long tees

-Great place for beginners or to work on throwing with your mid ranges

-Lots of helpful local players

Cons: -Short pins. Lots of these make you ashamed if you don't park it for a birdie~

-On Thursdays there is often somewhat large doubles groups which make it a pain in the ass to play

-Some poison oak so keep your eyes open, however it's not too bad

-On weekends this is a very popular park and you will be unable to play the last hole in some cases
Other Thoughts: After whole three is bowl hole. There are two extra pins you can play after whole four (first you 'throw down' by teeing off near the hole #4 tee pad to the pin all the way down on the left, then you 'throw back' to the same pin that you threw to on pin 4)

Hope this helps, if anyone wants to get together and play a round shoot me a message:)

Pros: Great beginner's course, hard to lose discs. Baskets are in good shape, tee areas are dirt but are usually in pretty good shape as well. If you play with creative tees, can be challenging.
Cons: If you play the course 'as posted', it's probably only challenging if you're throwing lids. Picnic area can make hole 8 a pedestrian hazard.
Other Thoughts: If you're willing to mix up your round and throw from modified/longer tees, this course could achieve a rating of 2.5.
