Pros: I learned to play here just under 2 years ago, and have played at least 150+ rounds here since. Pin locations are rotated routinely (around every 30 or so days), only hole that doesn't move pin position is #7, although #16 is always some place on top of the mound.

I really like this course, it's challenging enough for an old guy like me who can't throw 500' to make those "easy pars". Not a lot of tree challenges, but enough to enable you to hit them anyway. I've met and played with a lot of good people out here, as relaxed or competitive as you want it to be. Good thing there is a water fountain above #3 tee pad, if you need H20, make sure you stop here to get it. Nice large concrete pads! Hole markers at every pad, so if you're new you shouldn't get lost - but some of the pin positions may be a challenge to sight locate if you are new. I recently moved away, but I will come back at least once/month to play, because I will miss this course otherwise.
Cons: Summer heat = dry ground. You'll be dusty at the end of the round. You'll be begging for water on a hot day, unless you get it at #3 or pack it in.

Hole 1 has a pin position straight ahead and slightly to your right. To the right of that pin location, 30' or so, there is a "swamp" of sorts when there is water, over a short fence. You could lose your disc there, so throw with caution (or not).

There are some trees that LOVE to eat discs, so be prepared to throw objects (baseballs are good) at them - watch out for "widow makers".
Other Thoughts: If you live in the area, buy a parking pass (ACE parking) for $50/yr, and save yourself mucho money on entrance fee ($5). Always ample parking in dirt lot by tee #1, if limited street spots are full.

Pros: I played early AM so there was only 3 other people out there. I thought the course was well laid out and provided a variety of shots ranging from somewhat challenging lines, to straight forward shot, to BOMBS.

I really enjoyed the last 5 holes which all had a uniqueness and different approach. I definitely recommend this course.
Cons: Like most courses, the map I found here wasn't the most accurate, and I think they might've rearranged the layout for holes 9-13, but who knows, first time at a new course without any local knowledge tends to yield some orienteering issues so I wasn't surprised.
Other Thoughts: There are definitely gopher holes, but not nearly as many as the other reviewers seemed to think. Maybe that's because I didn't roll and ankle, I didn't think it was as bad as some other courses.

I can see that you'd really need to bring your own water on a hot days. It's a dusty area and if the winds pick up or the sun is just beating down it could make for a less enjoyable experience. I played from about 630am-8am so there was none of these issues.

Woodward Park overall is a beautiful place.

Pros: *Very large
*Multiple pin positions
*Some 500+ft holes
*Some elevation change
*Established area with large trees, natural obstacles
*Some of the longer holes have elevation changes, adding to the challenge
Cons: *HOT in summer (not related to course itself, but there is not a ton of shade)
*Facilities are far away when you get midway through the course
Other Thoughts: It has been some time since I've been here, but I have fond memories of the tourney I played. This course is fairly wide open, with some grass, some fast grass and some rocky terrain. For newbies, the distance on some holes can be a bit discouraging. All in all, quality course.

Less than enjoyable conditions

Pros: -Good hole variation
-Would probably have enjoyed this course more if not in Fresno
Cons: -Poor terrain (all sand/dirt)
-Poor terrain variation (see above)
-Poor air quality in Fresno
-Rolled ankle on one of the many many depressions in the ground
-Was hotter than blazes!
Other Thoughts: If this course was moved to a more temperate area with better air quality, the score would be bumped up maybe a whole point.

Cons: wish there was grass throughout the course
Other Thoughts: I love it,I play it whenever I can, its really helped me grow to love this sport, exspecially with a legit course right here in fresno

 Fun 18 With Great Scenery

Pros: Fun easy layout that is fairly simply to navigate. Very low chance of losing a disc. Fairly secluded with fantastic 360 views. Moderately to lightly wooded. Some decent elevation change throughout course, although most hole play pretty flat. Some memorable holes. Seasonal ponds and drainage ditches (although when I played they were completely dry) in play on 3-4 holes. 2 practice baskets, ample parking, and facilities on site. Concrete tees (1) and signs with hole layout, pin locations, and distances on every hole. Multiple pin locations on most holes (only 3 or 4 only have 1 I believe).
Cons: Fairly open with little shade. Only one tee on each hole. Fairly easy course with many wide open shots and no really long holes. The only water on the course is seasonal. Most holes play very flat despite numerous hills throughout the course. Pay to play ($5 per car). There are many holes in the fairways and throughout the course due to ground squirrels, which can make it easy to roll an ankle if you're not careful, and can make it hard to spot your disc if it lands in one (one of my shots landed deep in one and it took me a couple minutes to find it). The deep right pin placement on hole 6 brings hole 7's tee into play.
Other Thoughts: Very fun course to play for the first time, but due to its simplicity and low difficulty it is not one I personally would want to play regularly. That said, there are great views and scenery throughout the course and it would be a great course for beginner/intermediate disc golfers. I would like to play this course when the ponds and ditches are full as it would make some holes significantly more challenging.

 Ground Squirrel Heaven!

Pros: The course is set up in it's own area of a large sprawling park so it's disc golf exclusive. There are nice views of Fresno from the upper reaches. The concrete pads, baskets and signs are all in good shape making it relatively easy to navigate. The temps were great in early spring. With only two holes over 400' and only two others over 300', it's definitely an intermediate course at best.
The pole hole (#16? or # 17?) is pretty cool. Was is orginally built as something else? I don't think disc course designers/builders built up that massive structure, did they?
Two practice baskets are good and a nice staging area would be ideal for tournies. Plenty of parking.
Cons: It's a fairly straight forwarded course. Most of the holes are pretty bland, flat and not overly imaginative. I'm sure it would get really hot and dusty out there in the swelteriing Fresno summer days. Not much shade or water.
You really need to watch where your walking to keep from stepping in the ground squirrel holes. They're everywhere!

$5 entry each time would get old.
Other Thoughts: This would be a decent little home course for a older rec player like me. The challenge is isn't there for advanced players and beyond. I could play it many times and enjoy what it offers. The weather from Septermber to May would be perfect disc throwing weather.

Pros: -Nice cement tee pads
-Good variety of hole distances and multiple basket locations for several holes.
-Easy course to find your way around.
-Several sitting areas throughout the course if you need a break
-Nice practice area to warm up with two baskets
-All holes have good tee signs

Cons: -Course is entirely dirt no grass what so ever.
-Only one water fountain located in between the 2nd and 3rd holes and is not the easiest to locate.
-Course can be very crowded at times
Other Thoughts: If you are going during the winter months they only charge for parking on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday ($5)... Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday parking is FREE...
