Cute & Easy
Pros: For a disc golf course in Davis, CA that actually has baskets, this is your only option. I just played it for the first time, and it's actually right next to my freshman college dorms from 17years ago! Only takes 20-25 minutes to play nine holes. Some cute & very short holes to get aggressive on. Great for beginners, and building some confidence. Disc golf is fun no matter what!!
Cons: Yes, some of the baskets have seen much better days, but putting is no more challenging that a perfectly new basket. If you're expecting something difficult & lengthy, you'll be disappointed.
Other Thoughts: I made the mistake of playing on a Saturday afternoon, where there were plenty of picnic parties, volleyball games, and people throwing footballs around my shots. However, the course is laid out such that it pretty much hangs around the perimeter. I'm looking forward to playing again during the week when it's not crowded.
Uniqueness: C- (only thing unique is how short & simple it is)
Difficulty: D (biggest obstacles are people)
Fun factor: C (DG is never not fun)
Aesthetics: C- (on a hot day, you'll see some cute girls)

Pros: - nice, small city park
- there is never anyone else on the course, you're almost guaranteed to have it to yourself
- a couple cool pin locations (10 ft. drop-off behind #3)
Cons: - extremely small tees
- very short holes
- missing or wrong tee signs
- some tees point at awkward angles
- some baskets are in a state of disrepair
- some hole overlap
Other Thoughts: I actually really like this course, despite the rating I gave it because it is a perfect course to practice your 100 ft. upshots at baskets, and long range putting (a crucial part of any good game). Or if you're good enough, to just try and throw aces.
Sometimes the Davis hobos hang out around the picnic area (by basket 2 and tee 3), and there is lots of broken glass in this area, so be careful where you step. Basket 9 is placed by playground equipment, which is also very poor course layout.
It would also be a good course to play a game of 18 hole Ript on with a group of friends, because its short and fun.
The course overlaps itself once (#5 throws perpendicularly across #3 & #4), which is just poor design, but it really doesn't matter because there is never anyone else playing.
I just use it for putting/approach practice, and that's about all you should play Oxford Circle for.

Short corse for the neighbors
Pros: Near the frat houses, college town.
Cons: It is in a congested area, the field is short and easy, not much to it.
Other Thoughts: Not every park is meant for disc golf, it's more like someone's practice course.
