Description: This 18 hole course provides plenty of challenging shots featuring tightly lined fairways with water and serious brush, including heavy thickets of poison oak, coming into play on a couple of holes. Wooden posts mark OB lines, both in the wooded and meadow holes. Tall grass in the meadow is all OB!

The current course layout plays up and over some gently rolling hills, up and down narrow access roads and across ravines. Big props go to Tom Schot and the rest of the Santa Cruz disc golf community for realizing this course and making it happen.

The course begins on the hillside nearest Pavilion B, takes you down the slope of the watershed and then up the pathway behind the old Victorian on the hill. Continuing down the trail, you are surrounded by trees and native plants as you come up to the boat house and lake front. After a slight incline, the views from the overlook by the old milk barn at the next hole will take your breath away. The course wraps back up, close to the trail leading to the Virgin Tree, and ends just behind the baseball diamond behind Pavilion B.

The importance of maintaining the natural surroundings while creating this course is apparent throughout - even down to the hole number and distance "signs" which were created with rocks from the area.
