Pros: Anderson River Park is a great course for people who want a little more challenge. At the same time it offers some shorter holes that make it fun for the novice disc golfer. I like what the local club has done with the new O.B. This course is always evolving, along with the sport.
Cons: Well there are some signs out there that have been destroyed and grafitied on. Hole four doesn't have a sign anymore, and some rookies keep writting PAR 4 over the PAR 3 on hole 7's 639 footer.
Other Thoughts: Over all it's a great course, and I hope to see you guys out there. I like the recent maitinance after the flood!!

Pros: Course layout definitely featured a lot of shot variety forcing you to use all of your short game.
Good tee signs and very cool baskets.
Course is very easy to navigate and has a nice announcement board by the fist hole.
Hole 7 is a great longer hole with O.B. mixing up what is a largely short course.
O.B. obstacles offer challenge to a number of shorter holes.
The course definitely caters to all levels, offering a good challenge to shoot par for newer players while not offering up too many easy birdies for more advanced amateurs or pros.
Cons: This course would definitely benefit from a little more distance, a number of holes around 200' offer little challenge from an easy birdie.
Course feels a bit scraggly with the abundance of blackberries and dead trees, course could use a little clean up.
Though the concrete pads were good, some were a bit small or off balance.
Other Thoughts: Anderson River is certainly a fun and enjoyable course, playing it for the first time I felt like it would make a great home course, or learning course for newer players. Being close to I-5, and being a relatively quick round I'd definitely recommend it as a stop if your driving through the area. Most of the problems I could find with the course were very small, involving some of the minor cosmetic issues. Some of the holes felt like they were too tight to have a real shot at birdie but were just too short to really run the risk of a bogey. A few of holes as Adam mentioned have no real obstacles at all. A little touch up work could certainly push the course to a 4 for me.

 Carharts and a Machete

Pros: Beautiful greenery, wide variety of shots. Technical "make you think" shots. The back 9 is a nice jungle...
Wasn't crowded the times I played it.
Cons: Watch for cars bending corner tee off of No.1. Smacking the windshield of an F-450 driver under the influence of Pabst Blue Ribbon could get ugly.
Other Thoughts: I wore Carharts and longsleeves, the blackberrie bushes are very thorny.
Some well dug out routes through the massive bushes have shown up over the years.

 Fun course just off I-5

- Bright orange baskets and nice concrete tees
- Informative tee signs; each hole has a "name"
- Great variety of shots and distances
- Many blind shots (this could also be a con!)
- Blackberries are probably hell in the summer
- Some tee signs are in disrepair
- A few boring wide-open holes (but only a few)
- Big arms might think there's not quite enough distance
Other Thoughts:
The longest hole at Anderson is over 500', but most are in the 200' to 300' foot range; there are plenty of birdie opportunities if you can place your tee shots. Almost every hole is some sort of dogleg: either a long sweeping curve or just a short hook at the end. (One of the holes is actually a full left u-turn, via a mando.) A few holes in the front 9 are out in the open along a park road, but most are among trees and shrubs, including some unbelievably fat cottonwood trunks. In mid-March, the blackberries were pretty harmless, and I saw only a little poison oak, but I can imagine that some of the holes will get pretty jungly come summertime.

Like the other reviewers said, probably the best thing about this course is the variety. Almost every hole offers something a little bit different. Definitely worth the very short detour off I-5.

Pros: Wonderful variety of holes with lots of challenges,
Very pretty course incorporated in very nice park along the Sacramento River. I love how you must negotiate around all the trees and shrubs! All new baskets and recently poured tee pads.
Cons: Some disc eating berry bushes. A few signs showing wear.
