Pros: Lots of different shots. Baskets in great shape. Water hazards along the lake starting with hole 11. The bank - when the lake is UP - is steep into the water and rocky under the water. You'll get your disc back when the water goes down.
Cons: Not that I could find.
Other Thoughts: Hole 11 is fun. Over the water is a long shot, or, go around. It's a nice sized cove.
Hole 17 - almost 800 feet in the long position. But watch out. I went past it on my second shot and nearly ended up in the water about 150' past it. That hole is a kick to shoot at. I'm such a beginner - I had no idea I could throw a disc that far, even down hill.

Pros: Several beautiful basket placements on this course. This side is very challenging. Great variation of shots required.
Cons: This course still has dirt tees.
Other Thoughts: The wind on this side is sketchy, bring your A game. Several new long holes really open this course up. This side used every disc in my bag. Well marked and easy to navigate, this side gets my vote if I could only play one of the courses. Great job with new layout Hogan Team!

Almost Epic Course

Pros: Lots of great shot selection. Lots of land. Most holes range from 250 to 500 feet with hole #17 coming in at over 700+. Absolutely beautiful course in late winter early spring. The land has lots of oaks scattered over the property with rocks sticking out of the ground throughout. All of the baskets are in great shape. The course has several water hazards along the lake shore when the lake is high enough. Most holes are strategically placed in the middle of tree groves or boulders so that even the shortest holes are challenging.
Cons: This course can get very rough in the summer months, with lots of weeds and stickers. Wear long pants, boots and gators. $4 to get into area, not that bad considering you get 36 wonderful holes and a beautiful lake. Watch for rattlesnakes in summer.
Other Thoughts: This is a beautiful scenic piece of property to put a course on. This course is very similar in how it plays and looks to stafford, skyline, black butte or casitas: beautiful CA wilderness areas. This course tends to dry out faster than those other courses so has a shorter optimal time to play, but is still very playable in summer just prepare.
