...In the ghetto
Pros: It's another place to play. No crowds. Nice and open, good for working on longer drives.
Cons: Not in the greatest of areas. Little to no shade. Hard to follow (print the map off the city's website, that might make it easier). No water fountains that I could see. The creek along the east side smelled foul when the wind caught it and the steep banks leave little chance of fishing a disc out should you drop a disc in it; either wade it out into the sewer water and dig for it or leave it.
Other Thoughts: I would not recommend playing this course with any less than 4 people in your group, while I didn't have any problems today I can see how there could be potential for trouble. As this course is not in the greatest of areas, I would not recommend playing it in the early morning or near dusk. Take plenty of water, you will need it. If you tend to loose discs to water hazards, take a super long handled rake because you do NOT want to go in there.

Pros: This is a good course to play when you're totally wasted and have given up on life. Actually the front nine isn't bad (if you can find your way around) but see below for comments on the back nine.
Cons: The back nine, especially the three holes that run along the side of the freeway, is stupid. Those three holes play exactly the same, through a grove of pine trees that really messes with your game if you get sap on your hands.
Other Thoughts: I've never seen a parking lot look so good as when I finish a round here.

Woodson Park - I'd Rather Not...
Pros: The course design is not bad since some of the holes were redone ONLY IF YOU KNOW THE COURSE. It is not overly wooded, and fairly flat. There are a few long holes for big distance bombers. Concrete tee pads on all the holes.
Cons: This course is the ultimate in confusion. There are signs, numbers painted on the concrete tee pads, and numbers on the baskets, NONE of which match. Some holes were redone, so the online map does not match either. You almost HAVE to follow or know someone who plays this course often. The first few times I played, people were playing the course entirely differently and running into each other frequently, sometimes even arguing about what number hole they were on. Numbers of holes were drastically changed, some from the back to the front and vice versa. This course is also located deep in the barrio. There is some trash (mostly beer cans and bottles), and I actually threw my disc into a big open cedar tree that had a homeless guy living in it! He did give me my disc back though...
Other Thoughts: I would skip this course and play either Will Rogers or Dolese instead. It is not worth it. If you do play it, make your buddy drive so he can worry whether or not HIS car gets stolen out of the parking lot.
