Pros: Superb tee signs with washer system
Multiple pin locations on each hole
Nice tee pads
No pedestrian traffic
Pleanty of benches and trash cans
Course sits on a beautiful park
Couse flows nicely
Cons: 18th tee pad needs to be replaced
No practice basket near hole 1
Hole 2 has some "unfair" pin locations
Pros: Played Hanging Oaks for the first time today, after playing at Condon park. The tee signs are amazingly detailed, and have the easy to follow washer on each pole. A very well kept park. Asked a local where to find the first tee when we got there and not only did he tell us where to go, but also gave us a map to follow. Although it wasn't needed, because the layout made sense and there were signs if it was even close to being confusing.
Cons: No pro shop. Seemed a little short. Most of the holes didn't need a driver, and if you're good with a fairway driver, birdies should be fairly easy. Signs to get to the park would be good, according to the gps we had arrived while still on hwy 20 at the back side of the park.
Other Thoughts: If only other parks would use the lettered washer technique that this park, and Shady Oaks, use, it would make it easier for first time course players. All together I will be making it back here soon, and making a day of hitting a couple of the others in the vicinity.
Pros: great layout.
good course map on each hole
most multiple hole options i've seen.
great park, nice trees.
not to many people.
Cons: a bit of the same drive on a lot of holes, straight. which i didnt mind, it let me work on throwing hard but straight aka it was forgiving.
Other Thoughts: bring a hat and or sunscreen.
plenty of water.
played 36-40 holes in about 2 hours on a friday around 1pm-3pm.

Pros: There is a sign at each tee. There are cement tees. Excellent intermediate course. This course is more user friendly then Condon by far. There are less tight oak areas and closer baskets.
Cons: Could use a few more signs to next tees as you play along.
Other Thoughts: heads up watch out for the other players as the tee's are often in the same throwing area as the next guy. If you do start on hole 17 clear down by the baseball field, the tee1 start is just behind tee 18 to the west. It is easy enough to follow the given directions on this site and find tee 1. Thanks to the locals for the great sign work for the visitors, and keeping the place clean.

Hanging Oaks Penn Valley
Pros: Great course to throw long drives on,it has a lot of open tees. Good for distance driving. At the same time some of the holes onthe first nine are moderatly wooded and good for technical shots. I like this course because its layout is well designed, so props to the designers of this course for that!!! All the tees are well marked and te basket locations on the signs are accurate. It is a great course because it has multiple pin locations on all 18 holes and the pins are moved often(about every twoweeks or so) The people there are nice and will let you play through if you are a small/ single person group. Also if you lose a disc and other people find it they return it to you, great player ettiquete! Has everything from tight gaps to multiple water traps to a volcano on hole 6. All in all it is a fun course to play (thoguh I must mention I have only played three courses thus far)
Cons: Can be a little crowded on weekend afternoons but other than that I can`t think of any
Other Thoughts: This is the first DGC (disc golf course) that I have ever played on, I must say it is a good course to learn on because it has so much variety!

one of the best
Pros: Nice course layout, excellent challenges but not too hard. Many multiple pin locations. New players can have fun and not be overwhelmed.
Cons: Perhaps too many pin locations.
Other Thoughts: This course is my new favorite next to Shady Oaks, Auburn, and Rocklin courses.
