Beautiful setting, Poorly marked
Pros: Beautiful riverside setting just outside of Redding. Dog friendly. Good exercise trying to find where the next tee pad is or where the tone pole is located.
Cons: Very poorly marked especially due to the lack of play on the course. The tone poles are in terrible condition and have the wrong numbers at a majority of the pins. There can be many mosquitoes at the right time of the season so bring repellent. Certain low spots can become full of water during the wet season. There are plenty of large bushes and pits that will claim your plastic (this is not really a con). Dirt tees (if that's not your thing)
Other Thoughts: This is a locals course, not to say that you should not give it a try. Playing with someone who knows the course is best to experience the course. I played the course for the first time during a tourney so it was much easier to navigate. This course is not for sissy girly men so bring your man pants.

This Local Ignores Horsetown
Pros: • The course is challenging and blends lots of different holes from long fairways to short curves and over the top hammers.
• Once you find the holes, the course is designed really nicely
Cons: • I have played the course many times, but took some time off disc golf. When I went back to Horsetown, I could not figure out the holes.
• This course has the worst blackberry brambles I have ever seen. I am not talking fields of berries a couple feet high, I am talking monster shrubs over 10' off the ground that are in the fairway. I have used plywood platforms like a boats to retrieve discs with a 10' stick. Makes a GREAT story later though!
• It has tones, not baskets
• The river makes a nice backdrop on one hole, but for the most part it feels like a devastated old mining area full of hardy oaks, blackberry, and poison oak.
• In the winter several holes can be under water.
Other Thoughts: Despite my negative review, when I knew the course and played it at the right season (and had the skill to dodge blackberries), I really enjoyed this course. It's a locals course and as such fills a niche for Redding.
