Pros: Sunset Park is a small, very clean neighborhood park. It has a children's play area, sand volleyball pit, lights for evening play, a walking path, BB courts and ample parking.
The designers somehow squeezed 6 holes in this very small area. The baskets are brand new Mach IIIs. The pads are round concrete circles with the hole #, par , distance and an arrow engraved into the concrete. Very cool! The distances and pars are designed for children and the most beginner of beginners, like a 275' Par 5, downhill no less. I did get my first official double eagle ever on it and I'm damn proud!

There are great views up on top from the # 2 tee pad of the surrounding area clear to the Pacific.
Cons: Only six holes.
You have to be very careful of other park patrons.
Children's distances.
Other Thoughts: What a great little course to bring the kiddies to or that newbie. It's well designed, it's extremely clean. You can play at night. Great views. Just be careful of other park users.

Pros: Clean. Not many obstacles. small for short game practice.
Cons: if populated, may be a little hard to control. Course is on top of a hill and there are frequent gusts of wind...helps develop wind skills. Small, never really get to grip n rip.
Other Thoughts: nice course. nice cement pads. a little hard to spot the pins at first but overall a nice course to workout on.

Pros: Navigation is easy. Nice circular tee pads with hole number, distance to basket and par engraved in the concrete. Brand new Mach III baskets. Very nicely landscaped and maintained with plenty of trash and recycling bins. Decent amount of elevation in play. This park seems like it is brand new. There is a state of the art playground that is completely shaded with a fountain feature. The park also offers two half-court basketbal courts, sand volleyball, a view of the ocean, drinking fountains, restrooms, walking paths, picnic benches, soccer fields, and more. Seemed like enough lights to allow for night play.
Cons: Very short with few obstacles. Only six holes with one tee and one basket each. Hole 5 is unplayable in its current position due to the fact that the basket is within 15 feet of a popular playground feature. This hole is a blind tee shot over a rise and I am glad I chose not to throw because when I walked up over the hill I saw a toddler hanging on to the bottom of the basket. Park is heavily used by non-golfers. No practice basket.
Other Thoughts: Great for beginners and kids. A normal catch and throw disc could be used here. Bring the putters. Not a destination for the serious disc golfer, but fun nonetheless. The 1st tee is on the hillside beind the basketball courts. Go by the volleyball court and up the concrete path. Look for the circular tee pad on the grass.
