Enterprise Is A Great Time! (Even From The Shorts)
Pros: Enterprise Comminity Park is a very large sprawling city park. The disc golf course seems to occupy it's very own section of the park. I recently played early on a lovely October morning. Luckily, I met up with John, a local and he guided me through the course playing the shorts. I would say that the short tees play as a very easy recreational level, close to being a pitch and putt. There are quite a few little ACE runs in the 135' range including a 65' mini.
The terrain is mostly flat with some nice gullies toward the end. Here in October, the grass is brown and beat down so it's almost like playing on dirt. There are scattered trees but they are used very effectively to increase the course's challenge and also to up the enjoyment factor.
The baskets are older models with yellow rims with numbers on top. There are two sets of concrete tees, the longs and the shorts. Both have their own tee signs. The longs aren't always longer, sometimes they're just a little more difficult.
13 & 14 were my two favorite holes. They both played over and around the gullies.
Cons: One problem here for players new to the course is the tee signs don't state whether they are the long or short tee sign. Without a local, I probably would have been playing a combination of the two.
There were three tee signs missing for the shorts. This would have been problematic without my trusty local leading me.
Much of the course is out in the open. Bring sun protection and water on those hot Redding days.
Other Thoughts: The course was, oh so lovely, at 7 am. By 8 am, quite a few players were showing up. Just speaks to the enjoyment factor here. This is a course I could play time and time again and I haven't even had the opportunity to play the longs yet!
The previous evening, I had Edgewater all to myself at 5:30 pm. I bet there were bunches of players here at Enterprise last night at 5:30 pm.

Fun n the sun
Pros: challenging for a beginner disc golfer as there are short tees along with long tees for the more advanced players. Open tees to get your game going. Course gets more difficult and diverse on back 9. This course plays fast for an 18 hole course. Located in a nice park.
Cons: Confusing course layout. We had experience players and that was a huge help for first timers. Some tees are close together and this makes it confusing. Rocky and rough wear some good hikers and discs that can take some punishment. Course gets crowded and has some areas where you need to watch traffic.
Other Thoughts: Course can handle a lot of players but you need to watch as I said the tees are close together and some are near baskets. Redding is hot in summer so plan on being in the sun for most of the holes. I like the short and long tees. Some of the long tees aren't really longer but more difficult on approaches. I look forward to playing this course again!

Yeah... Pancakes ARE good.
Pros: -Decent use of the space given.
-Course is seperated well from the normal park users.
-Long and short tee's add some unique angles, and allows for all ability levels.
-Excellent local scene (in my opinion this is what makes Enterprise good). Real friendly locals, and the club works really hard to keep this place nice.
-Baskets just powder-coated for the Jan. 9 tournament. They look awesome.
-Very little, if any, garbage, vandalism or other things that can make a park in Redding less than inviting.
-Decent mix of lefts and rights. A couple long drives, and interesting approaches.
-Challenging enough to be fun, but easy enough to boost confidence.
-Great if you want to play 18 holes in less than an hour. (I finished one round, 18 holes, in 35 minutes.)
-Good course for the kids.
Cons: -Could have utilized the space given a little more effectively.
-Lots of cross-fire. Many tee's are in the fairway of other holes. On busy days, the course can be a little hectic.
-Some holes are just plain too simple. If I wanted to practice putting I would stay at home.
-A couple culverts that could eat a disc that scared me.
-Can be really tricky to play the long tee's on a busy day.
-A little more signage for the long and shorts would be good for playing the course the first time. But after a round or two, the set-up becomes clearer.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course for all ability levels. Even the better players can find some challenges on a few holes. But it also caters well to beginners, and first-timers. The dg weather in Redding is almost perfect year round. The middle of summer can be too hot, and the middle of winter can be wet and muddy. But the course is still playable all year. The course is located well in the park to keep the public and Degolfers seperated. (Degolf = German for 'athletic event involving heaving plastic, and lot's of cursing') Like I've said, the local scene here is really the best part about the course.
