Shorty only a mother could love
Pros: Neat little course situated in the middle of an affluent ghetto in UCSB college town of Isla Vista. Course takes place in 3 different lots and has no holes over 250 ft'. Makes a great practice course if you live nearby.
The regular tees that are "marked" are really short and aceable with longer tees available that can make for some challenging options.
Decent use of the terrain given with hyzer and anhyzer routes on the last holes 6-9 around a giant eucalyptus tree. 2 low ceiling drives and a tunnel shot round out the obstacles, with 2 overhand shots available on 1-2.
There's a soccer field as you cross from 4-5 to 6-9 that can handle about 400' drives and is a great practice field with landmarks for gauging distance.
Baskets are in good shape, tees are natural but footing isn't really an issue as you're not heave-ho'ing any shots here.
Local tees/alternates can provide some longer throws in the 300-350' range, and the course just lends itself perfectly to safari holes.
You can play through in about 20mins.
Cons: This course is a relic from the early days of disc golf when 200' was a longer shot. Putter only on the reg tees. Almost impossible to park unless you live in town as the city is PACKED with cars. Need to bike in or live next door like I did for 2 years.
Other local course is much better and will provide a challenge, IV is mostly an afterthought as a destination.
Not the easiest to navigate, but you can figure it out after a few rounds.
Other Thoughts: Don't worry about coming here out of your way unless you have to mark off every course as played. If you live in town it's fun to frequent and safari a course. Will be a good warm up or practice round(s) for those willing to travel but again parking is an issue and you might have a trek ahead of you to get to the course.
I always play the course when I'm visiting just for the nostalgia as the course was my backyard for 2 years and learned to love it.
Play Evergreen for a full 18.
