Pros: *Multiple positions for each pin
*Fast grass
*Nice difficulty increase as you progress
*Some elevation changes
*Well maintained
*Concrete Pads
Cons: *Some regulars in large groups ALWAYS there
*Could be a bit tough to recover disc if you throw over the fence in a few places
*Could lose disc in creek, difficult to recover
Other Thoughts: This is an excellent course that I learned to play on growing up. It has been expanded to 27 holes, with a temporary 9 holes up occasionally. The 'old' front nine is very easy for people beginning to play, where the regulars hang out. This area is laid out in a way giving lefties who throw forehand an advantage depending on pin position, which is changed every few weeks. After getting past this old front nine, it's clear and open, and the trees are old and established in this well thought out course.

Pros: Excellent variety of holes.

The front 9 tend to be shorter and easier for beginners with parking close by.

Check it out!

Hole 6:

It has a newly installed bench that is really a work of art. It is concrete with a stained glass depiction of a basket and flying discs. Nice ...

The front nine also has several alternates, two of which have nice elevation changes. The locals are friendly and would be happy to show you.

The middle nine tends to have longer, more intermediate to advanced holes. Very fun. Bring water.

The back nine has longer and more technical holes best for advanced players that includes water hazards. Again, bring water.

Cons: Holes made by ground squirrels, watch where you are walking.

Modesto can be very hot from May through October. (But it's a dry heat)

Fortunately, there are a lot of trees. As long as you stay in the shade it's very tolerable on all but the hottest of days.

Sometimes the grass becomes too tall and produces annoying foxtails (May-June). You'll need gators, or bare feet with flip-flops works surprisingly well.

Pros: - 27 holes
- cement tee pads
- all holes have signs
- easy to map out and guide
- Lots of different types of thows can be used
- Great locals to play with
- theres a weekly dub and singles round
- theres a few tourneys held here
- Super nice people around there
- nice course layout
- restrooms and H2o fountains
Cons: - No elevation change
- FOXTAILS in some parts of the year

Other Thoughts: My home course. I love the course it has great people there and some great competition as well. There currently 27 holes and a few alternate tee pad positions and they are looking to expand if they are ever allowed too. Youll throw all kinds of shots. Good for beginners and open players.

Pros: There are actually two courses to be played here. The Scenic Course starts at Pamela Monterosso Park at the intersection of Coffee Rd. and Scenic Dr. The other course is located at East La Loma Park. If you have a couple years of experience and want a challenge then play the Scenic Course. You will need a variety of drives and a certain degree of accuracy to play this course. There are two creek crossings and bad drives will result in lost disc while good drives are rewarded with birdie opportunities.
Cons: Signage for the course is fairly accurate; sometimes the locals will move baskets to locations not on the tee pad sign. The East La Loma Course's signage is screwy, but this will change when another nine holes go in east of hole 4.
Other Thoughts: This is my home course and our club, Modesto Area Disc Golfers try to maintain a course that is playable for out-of-towners. There is a course map for the Scenic Course in the kiosk by hole 1.
