This is a Championship course designed by the famous Tom Schot ( designed De la Veaga as well)
within a beautiful park , Clean, Safe , surrounded by a lake and meadows full of wildlife , try and see the Owls on hole 18 up in the trees, it makes as one of the most fun courses in California. With an average of 2-3 positions on each hole, you get a variety of special shots, some short beautiful wooded holes to a 1288 foot par 5 wide open not a tree in sight down a runway of gorgeous grass, bombs away. Technical for pros and fun for beginners this course has everything you can ask for in the disc golf world of courses. A gem and Never crowded even on weekends, within 30 minutes of de la veaga and CSUMB course your in disc golf heaven, friendly safe and a straight up legitimate challenging championship course.
Cons: There are alot of Out of Bounds but not tight OB, the Poison Oak is being maintained better then it ever has, id still suggest bringing long pants if your allergic and some technu just in case. its a long wonderful course so bring water and snacks, there are plenty of places to go pee if you have to go and only bathrooms by holes 1,2 and 18 inside the main Park area.
Other Thoughts: If you see anyone working out on the Course please stop and say hi, its an all volunteer maintained course , we pride ourselves in keeping it clean so please pack it in pack it out.. ENJOY
