Pros: Not crowded, some elevation changes for uphill and down hill shots but not extreme elevation changes. Course is mainly flat and cart friendly. Plenty of shade. Parking is $6. Two practice basket located left of tee box 8 which is left of tee box 1 and basket 12. A lot of the tee box has wood stomp to sit and a place to clamp your phone for video shorting
Cons: Need some kind of sign for where the practice baskets are located. Maybe a sign near tee box 1? If you get lost finding the course like going toward the archery range then no phone signal
Other Thoughts: Today most of the holes was holes was on location "B" which was around 300-350 ft so distance was fine.

Pros: - nice park very accessible from freeways
- awesome tees, seating on cut logs, retaining walls, and the ubiquitous bag posts at SVDGC courses
- Mach V baskets. Some may not like them, but I think they're pretty sweet
- technical course with some very fun holes
- already a nice little scene developing
- 12 holes so can be played twice easily for all kinds of dg enjoyment (doubles, wolf, skins, etc)
- will be a great winter course when the grass is green
- some lovely shots. Hole 3, 7, and 11 stand out to me
Cons: - too many blind shots as a proportion to the whole (5 out of 12 by my count)
- I felt like some holes were needlessly long...perhaps a great spot for all holes < 300ft. That way you could fit 18 in.
- practice basket was oddly placed
- a couple of odd doglog holes (4, 5) that were a tad frustrating but not a huge deal
- more poison oak than others have reported. On hole 4 there's a huge area just past the window you need to hit that is already collecting discs (saw 2 that were abandoned already!).
Other Thoughts: A welcome addition to the west valley, which finally has a course. This is a fun, social, not too difficult, yet oddly challenging course that winds its way around an old walnut orchard (like a lot of other courses around: Emerald Hills, Lake Sonoma to name a couple). Players have to hit their lines consistently to score well here, which is easier said than done! I'd like to go back and see all of the A positions (course was fully in B when I played it), but me and my eldest son who's 7 had a good time. Thanks for all of the hard work SVDGC!

Tight course with nice tee pads & baskets

Pros: - Nice area with beautiful trees and easy to walk/hike.

- Restrooms are really clean and parking is easy with #1 tee box close by.

- Challenging holes that reward accurate throws.
Cons: - Poison Oak is plentiful on some of the tight holes. But easily avoidable if you know what it looks like.

- Parking is $6 and you can purchase an annual pass for $95 from Santa Clara County Parks.

- No rewards for the big throwers as there are lots of trees and tight shots. Definitely a Technical Course!
Other Thoughts: This course has 12 holes as of 9/12/18. Hopefully they will be able to add an additional 6 to make a full 18-hole course.

Technical course

Pros: Lots of tight tunnel shots and challenging tee shots which require multiple throwing styles.

Well maintained park and restrooms

Good use of space to allow for several 300' plus holes along with shorter more technical holes between 200-300'

Beautiful environment
Cons: Poison oak off the fairway, but not terrible

No big open tee shots if you are looking for max distance throws
