Pros: The course was built as an Eagle Scout project by Tanner Nash. I played a few of these Eagle Scout project courses and this one is the best one I've encountered. The nine hole course uses 8 baskets. The first Innova basket doubles up as the # 9 basket. The signs are nice colored ones with all the useful information such as maps, par, distance and a hole sponsor.

There are a variety of hole distances and difficulties. Usually I would comment about which target group was this course designed for. But here I think it worked making the course kind of an enjoyable little rec course. It has some short ACE runs and a couple longer, more challenging holes. There are chances to air out your arm here.
The park doesn't seem to be all that busy so I think there wouldn't recieve much interference from other park patrons.
Cons: Signs were missing on some holes (# 2, # 3 and others) making navigation a little confusing). Luckily I was guided by a couple of friendly locals.
Bushes can be a little prickly when looking for errant tosses.
Other Thoughts: This is just a fairly solid little course. It's going to appeal to the locals who aren't looking to travel too far, who aren't looking for that great of a challenge. Maybe the teen bicycle crowd.

It has it's niche. It exposes folks to our game and thank you Tanner for that.

Pros: The course was designed by a youngster getting his Eagle Scout badge. Well-done!
Good job designing 9 holes with 8 baskets and getting the most out of the layout.
Great course for beginners, like my 8 year old daughter who loves playing here.
Enough of a challenge on a few long holes for advanced players to enjoy the walk.
Not a crowded park. Those who don't play disc golf have their fun and aren't in the way.
Cons: No map on the property causing people to get confused about which pad to use for #4, #5 and #7.
3 tee pad signs creates more confusion for the 6 holes without signage.
Concrete pads should have been, and still could be stamped with distances and hole #s
Other Thoughts: Not worth a long drive to play this course.
The acacias could easily be trimmed back quite a bit in some key areas that would make the #3 and #7 more fair. Not enough landing area room for drives on those holes.
#4 needs a few dirt steps cut for safety.

Pros: It's a really nice 9 hole course.
Has some tough LONG throws
Saturday afternoon, and no park goers got in the way at all.
Gorilla play available to make some of the shorter holes much longer
Had a lot of fun out here playing some doubles with friends.
Adds another cool course only 10 minutes away from Mountain pride.
A Really long, tough par 4 at about 850 ft.
2 other holes are 400+
Cons: Has the same killer bushes as at Mountain pride, they just tear up your legs when you go to retrieve a disc.
If the park was busy could be dangerous, but I was there on a saturday afternoon and it was empty.
Not many obstacles right off the tee, so you get to choose your shot from the tee. There is more protection near some of the baskets.
Other Thoughts: I had a lot of fun out here with some friends after the Murrietta monthly. It's cool to see a 9 hole that goes beyond a really short practice area. I'll stop by again next time I get up to play at Mountain Pride.

Pros: Had 1 hole that was fun to play. Good down hill drive.
Cons: Confusing 4-6 holes. there is one hole that os so long, that we were just throwing discs as far as we could for 3 tines straight. many bushes in the fairway. use bright discs. worst course I havever played so far.
Other Thoughts: get rid on the long hole in the back and shorten it up. move the baskets a little further from the bushes.

Pros: Good easy to follow layout. Great signage. Multiple chances at getting an Ace.
Cons: All holes are pretty short, if the park is busy it can be pretty easy to have interference from other non frisbee playin park guests. Not a great degree of difficulty.
Other Thoughts: This is an absolute perfect place to try playing for the first time or to bring your first timer friends.

Pros: The course plays through a small neighborhood park. There are a couple really minor elevation changes, adding some rollaway potential on one green and a slightly elevated tee shot on another hole. There is some length variety, with ace run shots and a couple that are long enough to open up and throw longer drives. A couple holes have some obstacles in play to force a little variety in line shaping.

The flow is easy to follow for the most part, with few long walks or navigation issues. The tees are fine, with a couple nice concrete pads and mostly marked areas on the concrete walking path. These offer plenty of room for a runup.
Cons: The safety issues here are pretty disappointing to see. On a course like this that will attract beginners, you'll get a lot more errant shots and designs should take that into account. The walking path, a bbq area, benches and a playground are all in play, on a busy day it could be pretty tough to play this layout without potentially hitting other park users. A few of the holes play close together, with errant drives from one hole ending up on other fairways.

This course doesn't offer a whole lot of difficulty, with mostly flat and wide open shots and little to no punishment for missing your line. The layout is a little odd n spots with a shared basket and a shared tee, not a huge issue but it could be a little confusing as only 3 tees have signs so far.
Other Thoughts: Beginners can try out the sport here without having to worry about too much difficulty or a real chance of losing discs. More experienced players won't find much challenge or variety, hopefully the couple beginner courses in this area lead to the development of more difficult and interesting courses.

Pros: Wide open- really difficult to throw a disc in a backyard and lots of options to throw a jungle 18 using holes and pads. Several long holes (made less wicked when played as par 4). Outstanding tee signs. Alternate pins for 7 and 8. Plays very fast and fun. Hole 7 is a tough.
Cons: Wide open- evidently trees fear this park so just bring your grip-and-rip and a putter. A cheese-grader rated walkway just itchin to get at your discs. Only 3 tee pads serving 4 holes with the walkway making up the remainder. 9 tees, 8 holes. Not very challenging unless its super windy. Vandals have removed almost all of the tee signs
Other Thoughts: This was clearly a disc golf course shoe-horned into a tight pocket park and they did well with the space they had. Could of shortened or reworked a couple holes to come up with a full 9. Needs lots of trees to increase difficulty.
