Pros: The course plays through a narrow greenbelt among neighborhoods. It's a flood control basin, so you get minor elevation on the sides and a handful of baskets are placed on these slopes with rollaway potential. There are enough trees that this is the most technical course in Vegas, you have to contend with low ceilings and moderately tight gaps throughout. You do need some level of shot variety to score well here.

The course is impeccably groomed, with short grass and nice landscaping, I thought the last few holes through the xeriscaped area were a neat change. There are concrete tees and decent signs that have distance and hole layout and a pointer in the direction of the next tee.
Cons: Holes 4-12 are atrocious from a layout perspective. The holes cross one another and often throw directly at or over other tees and baskets. On top of that you have a couple blind shots where another hole is right in the landing zone with no visibility off the tee. Walking paths run throughout the course, and they were pretty busy even on a cloudy cool day. The course is squeezed into a narrow space, and the low ceilings make it even more likely that people will take risky routes and bring neighbors' backyards into play. The concrete tees are ridiculously slippery when wet, I know it's the desert but it's not that hard to put some texture on the pads.

There are a couple really long walks, including a couple that made no sense. You sometimes have to backtrack the entire length of the hole and then some to get to the next tee. After hole 14 you have to leave the park, walk along a road for what seemed like 1/4 mile then reenter a different part of the greenbelt. The design leaves a lot of the holes feeling really repetitive with way too many 300-350' shots with low ceilings and no real line to the hole.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will find the course approachable, though the chance of losing discs over the neighborhood fences might deter less accurate throwers. More experienced players will find some challenges, but no real variety and a lot of unnecessary safety issues. If you can play early in the day before the course and walking path are in use this is an ok place to play, otherwise it would be really frustrating to have to wait on a lot of holes for pedestrians to clear.

Pros: Couple of rather fun pins, very well groomed course.
Cons: Private course... you are not supposed to play unless you are a resident of Peccole Ranch. However, they really won't bug you much unless you are causing trouble.

The course is on a narrow greenway that runs through a neighborhood. For about half of the holes on the course, you are coming back down the same fairway that your went up previously.

DO NOT try to get aggressive on this course unless you are willing to lose your discs. Many of the holes are actually pretty fun plays, however to really reach the pins you have to play over houses or risk going over the fence OB into back yards. Your most likely will not get your disc back even if you attempt to locate the house.

Other Thoughts: The course is setup for a challenging play... but doesn't really allow you to play an aggressive game to really get ahold of any of the holes.
