Pros: grass that is watered and mowed often. not a lot of other golfers on the course so you can play quickly. excellent starter and family course. has both tee pads and baskets.
Cons: it is 9 holes. 8 and 9 are on the other side of the dog park and hard to find. not to challenging with either of the length or obstacles. this is both a pro and con but the course has sprinklers so if you golf early you will want or need a towel.
Other Thoughts: carmichael is a good place to get back in to the game or keep you game up to date!

Good Lunch Time practice!
Pros: For those that live around Shady Oaks in Orangevale, this is a decent place to hit close by if the Oaks are impacted (as often is the case.)
Cons: Long walk between 7 and 8 is odd. If the second nine is added and this is revised to be part of a second nine, the nice walk between front and back could be nice.
Other Thoughts: I would slot this course between Elk Grove and Marconi. Again, for those Orangevale folks, it is a closer drive than Marconi and a much better area. It is wayyyyy closer than Elk Grove and a more challenging/better layout. It is what it is, a quick practice round during a lunch break!

Its no Schweitzer, But...
Pros: Well the Mutha Putters lost there beloved Albert Schweitzer but fought back and set up a pretty good 9 holes, Still fighting for the other nine.
The layout is very good considering the obstacles they had to work with.
On most holes you have a choice of lines towards the target.
Groups of mature trees are used to guard most targets.
Off some tees there are some tricky mandos that make it interesting.
Plenty of parking and is located in a very nice park with all the amenities.
Cons: Most people are not aware the course is there so you get the occasional park user sitting in a fairway.
Maybe not a con, But it is all grass and totally flat.
Tone poles, But I think the way Mike Guerrero is handling things we should have baskets in the not to distant future.
Navigating this course might be a little tricky your first time around but there's a good map in the links.
Other Thoughts: There are doubles on Wednesday at 6:00 pm. Get out there and play, They could use the support. Mike and the Mutha Putters are a dedicated group of people who fought to keep Schweitzer open and fought to install this one. Go out to this course and show your support because they did a great job.
