Pros: Very few things are positive about this course. It does offer a slight variety of shots, but without many natural obstacles, most of these are created by arbitrary mandatory shots (two around 1" metal poles that are not flagged). Some long distance driving opportunities are available.
Cons: Course is poorly marked. Tee signs face one direction, tee pad another, no arrows to offer direction; not all tees are flagged, and none have any sort of reflective or brightly colored tape to offer guidance. Distances on tee markers are not accurate. Mandatory listings on tee markers are not always clear (e.g., "mando right" on an open hole with a pin to the left begs explanation - mandatory right around what?). Area is open to off-road vehicles, which are loud and obnoxious. Not a whole lot of trash cans on the course, so there's lots of garbage on the course. Boring design and lack of trees & vegetation (save for sage brush) make for little more than an hour of free-flinging your discs in the dust.
Other Thoughts: Toss some man-made obstacles out there for mandatory shots - at least it will add some character to the course. Awful to play on even a mildly windy day.

Pros: Good for the long-distance driving. Sand makes for a "good second shot" day. Great for people looking to work on their approach.
Cons: Nothing to really obstruct your shot. Rock is about the only thing aside from dirt to stop your disc. The dirt does play havoc with your throws for sure.
Other Thoughts: Bring some boots if you plan on playing.
