Clean lil course
Pros: -Nice baskets, all in great shape
-Neat, circular tee pads with the hole length and direction etched into them
-Family-friendly course. No smoking and a fancy play area for the young ones.
-Very clean park setting
-Good use of elevation change. Each hole has an elevation element that one has to shape their shots around.
-Plenty of parking
Cons: -Dangerous. Not for golfers, but for the masses of kiddies that are playing in the play area. One of the baskets is literally 15' away from a sculpture the kids use as playground equipment, on a blind hole, no less. Serious design flaw.
- Weird pars. One 275' par 5 and another short par 4. On completely open holes. I guess they play if you hit a kid, you get a stroke, which, I'd imagine, is pretty often.:
-Lots of families wandering around the fairways. Hopefully, they'll learn.
-Hole 4 tee is right in front of a fence. Very awkward.
-Only 6 holes!:(
Other Thoughts: Sunset Park is a newer park with a very young disc golf course along the periphery. Hole 5 killed this course's rating for me. I buzzed the tower, almost nailing a wayward toddler (with a good drive), and got yelled at by her mom, never a good sign. What can ya do? it was clear when I spotted it 30 seconds prior. I expect to hear about a LOT of young ones and their parental units getting hammered with discs at this course.
This course caters strictly to beginners. High pars and danger when throwing discs hard (even with appropriate, good drives) mar this pitch-and-putt for anyone that can throw more than 200'. Good for seeking aces and the ego boost of shooting -7 on 6 holes, but that's about it.

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.
