Pros: Interesting shots with elevation changes
Great tee boxes
Practice Basket
Beautiful park
Cons: Wind can be a problem at times
Only 9 holes (hopefully will expand to 18 in years to come).
Currently a lot of weeds, and increased disc loss potential (not usually a problem though).
Currently a TON of ticks!!
Other Thoughts: LOOK OUT FOR TICKS!!! I've played here a lot and it's never been a problem before this last round, but be warned, the ticks are out in full force. No exaggeration, on holes 7 & 8, I pulled around 20 ticks off of me, and my buddy had about 15 more. It was so bad that we blew off our usual second round of 9. So take precautions and check yourself diligently before heading home.

Pros: Better than expected, with ample elevation starting from the 3rd hole on. Great baskets and rubber teepads, and will get even better once the signs & retainer walls are complete. Dual pin locations per hole. Very nice surrounding views with Lake Herman and the Delta nearby, as well as Mt Diablo in the distance. Holes #1 & #2 made me wonder if this was going to be a short course, but once I got rolling from #4 on, it got longer and more difficult.
Cons: Had to pay $5 bucks to go over the Benicia Bridge.
Other Thoughts: Cool RC car dirt track on hole #7. Excellent family community park with all the nice amenities. Teepads #4 & #8 are excellent burn spots with a great views. This new DGC is a VERY welcomed addition to the sparse offering of East Bay DG courses.
Uniqueness: B+ (very nicely laid out around a multi-use community park)
Difficulty: A- (good elevation & use of trees; can get breezy)
Fun Factor: A- (very nice design & each hole felt unique)
Aesthetics: B+ (some refuse; pretty park; nice surrounding scenery)
Overall: B+
