Pros: -Practice Basket
-Not Crowded
-Well Groomed Park
Cons: -Short Holes
-Not Many Obstacles
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed this little course. It is the perfect course to bring the family or for beginners. There are a few longer holes, but mostly the holes are open and short. The park is very nice and the grass is perfect. They did the the best they could with the few trees that are there. Hole nine ends at the beginning, so playing multiple rounds is easy.

Pros: - A reasonable mix of distances
- Baskets were all in decent shape
- Grippy teepads
- Well kempt grounds
Cons: The design of the course has done a great job of avoiding all of the trees or any other obstacles that might have added interest!*

*There aren't all that many obstacles at the park available to use. Even so, any trees on this course are either 1) near or behind the tee pad or 2) right near the basket thus missing out on the opportunity to force players to shape their shots at all.
Other Thoughts: Based on the current rating here, I was expecting a LOT more out of this course. Enjoy this course to practice drives and distance control, but you won't find much more than that.

Pros: -Perfect course to learn the game

-Concrete Tees

-Practice Basket (as quite a few courses throughout the region don't)

-Large grass fields to warm up or practice driving. There is a baseball large field next to Hole #1, if that is being used, there are plenty of other large grass fields throughout the park.

-The DGA Mach 3 Baskets are nice and in good condition. The center tape has just been replaced (which I like).

-Limited Crowds

-Plenty of paved parking at Hole #1.

-Elk Grove Park is a FREE nice clean park
Cons: -There are dirt or gravel roads near or going through quite a few of the holes. You sometimes have to wait for people walking the park to pass by.

-Hole #1 and #8 - if you don't make it over the gravel roads, your discs will be landing in the rocks - as a result, you might want to only throw champion or star plastic discs in these holes.

-The Tees are too thin.

-Not too many trees / obstacles.

-Very little elevation change in the holes. A few of them you are up on a small mount, but that is it.

-If the park has large event on a weekend or holiday or sports practice, part or all of the course will be closed (does not happen often however).

-All the holes are backhand. Wish there at least a few forearm holes.

-Most holes to have a sign, but many are cracked.
Only 1 pin placement per hole - the course it always the same.

Short holes - the average is 250 feet.
Other Thoughts: So I do have more negative comments that positive ones, but this is a nice simple course in overall good condition. It is the perfect learning or practicing course. I would only play the course if you were local and wanted to do just that. It is not worth driving out of your way.

Cons: If your an experienced player, you tend to get bored. Not really any challenge of any type, broken signs
Other Thoughts: bring new players or kids

Pros: Nice LONG tee shots. If you want to work on distance driving, this is a good course. Nearby a lot of food places :)
Cons: "Boring" in that all the holes are basically straight shots from tee to hole. Very few obstacles. Very little shade. If you aren't good at driving, or are using beginning drivers, this can be frustrating.
Other Thoughts: I played on a hot summer day.... not a good idea. Not much shade. Better for a cooler day IMO.

 Good Practice Course

Pros: Nice park setting. Nine Mach III (or maybe IV) baskets and teepads. Short and most holes are wide open. Holes two is long with trees in front (only hole unreachable by average players) and hole three is a fun short anhyzer or a tunnel shot through trees. Lots of ace runs here. Practice basket and bathrooms near 1st teepad. Good beginner course.
Cons: Too short and open. The park gave up the least interesting area for this course. Not challenging to experienced players.
Other Thoughts: Once a month this course becomes a lot more fun and challenging. The Chainrackers host a $5 handicapped tournament with 18 alternate tees for 27 holes of disc golf fun. The alternates are not marked (except for tournaments), but provide extra distance and challenges to each hole. Tournaments are 2nd Sat. at 8:00 a.m.

Pros: The 9-hole disc golf course is in it's own dedicated area to the side of this large park. Despite the shorter distances, I actually found this course to be a fun scoring course. Would be a great wagering course with a buddy. Very clean grounds, with short mowed grass. Very nice teepads & signage. Free parking along with WiFi access.
Cons: Flat and easy, with few trees from holes 4-7. Finding the course and DG parking was not easy for my first time. Subsequent visits will be easier to access & more enjoyable.
Other Thoughts: Elk Grove Regional Park itself is quite a large park with a number of softball fields, and picnic areas. It even has a small man-made lake in the middle.
==================
Uniqueness: B- (dedicated area; seems like an afterthought, tho)
Difficulty: C+ (flat; not long)
Fun factor: B (wish there were more trees)
Aesthetics: B+ (mowed grass; some litter)
---------------------
Overall: B-

Pros: - Short holes give newer players a shot at success
- Level for the most part, reduces fatigue
- Wide open, good for long sweeping shots with understable plastic
- Easy to get through in about half an hour
- Rarely (if ever) busy
Cons: - Shortness can become a turn-off quickly
- Course is a bit too open - lack of challenge hurts its replay value
- A lot of hard, dusty ground in the summer
- Course suffers from some drainage and mud problems in the winter
- Pedestrian paths run through the course. A lot of people understand to be careful walking through there, but there are still a good number of people that stroll through the middle, either unaware or intentionally ignoring the fact that they're on a course with flying plastic. Be careful when you see people walking near.
Other Thoughts: This course is great for working on form, new styles of throwing, and introducing newer players to disc golf. The ease of the course really begins to wear on the player, though. I go to school nearby, so I do play there from time to time, although if it were feasible, I'd likely go to another course instead.

As a practice and screw-around course, this is great for getting a round in in between classes or on your lunch break.

There are an alternate set of tees with GPS locations listed on discgolfstats.com if you're looking to change up your game here. I would post them here, but there's no way to show them on DGCR. =/
