Pros: Fun technical course. Challenging for all skill levels. Plays close to the 300' mark on most holes. Requires a variety of different shots and use of line shaping. Most holes offered FH, BH and Overhand shot lines. Good use of terrain and rolling hills.
Cons: Like most technical courses, the first few times playing are spent figuring out where the hole is, what line to take and which disc to use. A bit short. Advanced players wouldn't need a long range driver.
Other Thoughts: I really liked this course. The style of play reminded me of my home - Golden Gate. Lots of technical holes in the 300' range that require the thrower to hit a specific window or follow one of a few established lines. Seemed balanced on the FH to BH type throws.

While the signs are posted with distances, for me, most holes threw 20-30' longer than posted. Overall i noticed a lot of very specific turnover (both FH and BH) lines.

This is the type of course that after the first go-around, you figure it out and quickly drop your score. Outside of 1-2 holes, i didn't notice any holes that required very specific one purpose type of discs (eg. stingray), or favored one throwing style (eg. thumber).

Beautiful scenery, nice folks, and very fun.
Dog friendly.

Located in community park, with many different amenities.

Geographically, "out of the way" for most (nor cal), but absolutely worth playing if you can get to it.

An advanced player would make use of a full range of discs. A beginner would have fun with a travelers bag. - Bring "Straight" and Turnover Discs. Control is the key!

- Like mentioned by another post. Every hole is 3 and is birdie-able with the right line.

Pros: Other than whats already been said I only have a few comments to add.

Est. in 1982, Low Gap is a pretty old course (if you're in the area also play Highland Springs Reservoir, in Lakeport,CA est. 1980).

Nice variety of shots and alternate (natural) tees for most holes.
Cons: Baskets and tee boxes sit high because of erosion/years of use. Tees boxes are small.Tee signs are dated. No alternate pin locations.
Other Thoughts: Low Gap still sports super-old 18 chain Mach 2 baskets.

Ignore tee signs, all holes are played par 3.

There are some very fast "greens" here. Rocky course that will chew through low-grade plastic. Some PO.

 Good course

Pros: Good length
Changes in elevation make you be careful or else you'll end up downhill on another hole or in the archery range
Definitely a wide variety of shots
Has concrete tee pads
A couple water fountains if you forgot to bring some
Cons: Needs new tee signs
Bad throw on Hole #18 could result with your disc being in the dog park
Other Thoughts: Really enjoyed playing this course. Definitely my favorite around Mendocino County. Locals are very friendly, so if you need any advice, feel free to ask.

Pros: Nice elevation changes, making some shots challenging. beautiful scenery, and all concrete tees.
Cons: very left hand dominant course. could be a pro if you are a lefty, or have a mean forearm shot.
Other Thoughts: This is my home course, but I like to think i've been pretty objective. come play, we always love out of towners on the course.
