Pros: The course plays through a well kept area of a large multi-use park. The grass is nicely mowed and seems to have good coverage so I doubt if this course ever gets too muddy or dusty. There is some distance variety, with ace runs and some longer shots to stretch out your arm. This course is halfway between San Diego and Tucson or Phoenix, so it's well placed as a spot to stretch your legs and is the only course for a long distance in any direction so it's at least some exposure for the sport in this area.
Cons: The holes are all in one small field, and it's one that's used for other sports. The park is large enough that disc golf could have been put somewhere that didn't involve throwing over picnics, soccer games and other park uses. The layout is a little odd, and crosses over itself.
Many of the holes throw directly over or next to other baskets or tees, so there are some serious safety issues. The little yellow posts marking mandos don't actually make it very possible to see if they were passed on the correct side, and safety mandos in general are a terrible idea. They don't actually do anything to prevent errant shots onto other holes.
There isn't any real challenge or variety here. There are no trees or obstacles, every throw is a wide open shot with nothing to make you shape any lines. The tee markers are set down into the ground so they can be difficult to find. The baskets were not in the same places as indicated on the map, so the layout was even less safe and easy to follow than the one indicated.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will find the course approachable but boring, with some holes that are long enough to be frustrating for shorter throwers. More experienced players won't find anything redeeming here, with wide open shots and safety hazards. Don't bother with this one unless you just want to add to your course count.
