Pros: - Good variety of trees around the course, with holes ranging from poke and pray to wide open let'er rip shots.
- Hole lengths varying from decently long drives down to short little pitch and putt holes.
- Little bits of elevation change are used well providing some small downhills at least.
- Most holes straight ahead with a couple going to the left or right.
- Friendly locals
- Many ace-able holes
- Good course for geting beginers into the sport of disc golf
- Easy access from I-5
- Easy to find (right on main st.)
- Concrete teepads with the hole # in them
- There is a crudly drawn map of the first 9 holes on a picnic table next to hole 1
Cons: - Hole 9 is a "poke and pray" type hole with no real visable route to get to the basket
- Nasty rough to the side of a few holes, but you can tell alot of work has been put in to get rid of this
- Standing on hole 11's tee you can see 4 baskets that are within the range that they could be part of the hole.
- A couple of holes feel like they are just cramed in there to make it 18 holes.
- No signs yet, but they arn't realy needed as most holes the basket is visable.
Other Thoughts: A fun new course for the people of Red Bluff, an area that has needed a course for quite a while. The course makes great use of the peice of land that they were given and you can tell that the locals have put alot of work in geting the blackberrys and other junk cleared out. Not a super hard course, but still fun and definatly challenging for beginers. Definatly worth a stop if your traveling on the 5 and need a break. This course also makes a good option for the people of Redding as thier courses arn't as good as this one.

Pros: Fun course, some difficult holes, definitely different from other local parks. Very clean and great idea for a new park.
Cons: Short holes, very slippery when wet.
Other Thoughts: I really like how clean around the holes, and how the tees are poured wider on some holes. I drove from Weaverville, ill definitely go again

Pros: The course is placed well with the land provided. It offers a variation of routes and accomadates lefties and righties. Although most off the holes are shorter than 300' the trees offer plenty of difficulty.... love the Ivy. Not a lot of garbage and stuff around, the course is kept nice and clean. Bring your plastic, as a lot of holes will make you think about what to throw!
Cons: As of now there is no signage. The basic rule is ( The stamp is on the back of the tee-pad, with hole number. Face forward and the pad pretty much points at the next basket. Hole 8 and 10 are the only exceptions due to the big turns.) Too much traffic can slow play. 18 basket and 11 basket are kinda close to each other.
Other Thoughts: This course is now my home course and we put a lot of time and effort into this. Come out and enjoy, we can only improve from here. Signs are on the way, and more benches. Come DIG it!

Pros: A few good technical holes, with an overall good mix of different shots. Very nice concrete tees with the hole number in the tee and new Discatcher baskets. The layout is easy to follow with pathways and tee signs that point you in the right direction. Good use of trees and landscape, even without much elevation change. Four holes are par 2!
Cons: Short distances on most of the holes makes for very low scores for advanced players. No real uphill or downhill elevation change either.
Other Thoughts: This is a great first course for the town of Red Bluff and an excellent addition to the short list of courses in the area. Definitely a good place to learn the game or get some practice.
