Pros: -Plenty of Course Information provided on the board including Course Maps and Score Cards
-Nice Natural Tee Pads with gravel
-Good use of the trees and rock formations throughout the course
-Multiple Water Fountains and Trash Cans throughout the course
-Amazing views of Eastman Lake throughout the course
-Course has a friendly flow to it allowing you to shoot multiple rounds easily
Cons: -For more advanced players the course may appear simple/plain
-Only one pin location for each hole. The course is small but there are several holes where some variety would be nice.
Other Thoughts: Enjoyable course to play especially for beginners and players who want to work on their mid-range game as all holes are easily reachable from the tee.

Very friendly Park Staff at the Park Headquarters who are more than happy to help you with any questions you may have.

Pros: -Nice info board stocked with pamphlets for the course, wildlife, and other things.
-Nice use of natural objects like trees and the large rock formations.
-Good flow. It's a pretty small space used but nothing feels too close.
-Good use of the little elevation here
-Large natural tee pads
-Very clean out house style restroom by the tee for hole 1
-A couple of drinking fountains and trashcans on the course
Cons: -I've never been a fan of gravel used in natural tee pads. Can make for unsafe footing.
-Relatively short course (longest hole is 275)
-Not alot of variety in shots required
Other Thoughts: This is a fun course found in the day use area at Eastman Lake. It's a beginner friendly course that will be fun for the hole family. A short walk from the course offers some pretty spectacular views of the lake. It's a nicely designed course for the space they used but I couldn't help but think in the expansive area surrounding the lake, there could be a larger scale course.

PS - I hope nobody in the family is afraid of crickets because they are all over the place, even on the car ride in. As you're walking some sections of the course they're just springing up all around you. I thought it was cool but I did have to remove 6 or 7 from the grill/hood of my car.

 Fun little course

Pros: This is a fun little nine hole course on the top of a ridge overlooking Eastman Lake. The whole course has great views of the surrounding hills and the lake, along with the Sierra Nevada mountains. There is not a lot of elevation on the course itself, but there is a slight hill on many of the holes, along with some cool rock piles and old oaks to shoot around.

The whole course area had been mowed when I played, so there was no real rough to worry about fighting through or losing a disc in. This also made it easier to see where you were walking, and avoid the holes in the ground. The tees were large gravel filled boxes, and were in decent shape.
Cons: Though the old oaks were cool, there weren't enough of them to provide real obstacles, leaving the majority of the holes basically wide open with only one or two trees to avoid. This made the course get a little repetitive.

Some of the gravel boxes weren't in good shape, and made for some treacherous footing. The animal holes throughout the course also made for footing issues throughout the course. In a few places, there were patches of plants that were filled with seed pods that stuck in clothes and shoes, and were very difficult to get rid of.

The course could have used a little more signage, as there were a few places that it wasn't entirely obvious where to go next. The tee numbering was only visible at short range, and a few of the baskets were tucked behind trees or rocks. This meant extra walking to figure out the course layout the first time around.
Other Thoughts: This course was a decent little course that's worth playing if you're in the area, but not worth going too far out of your way for. It is pretty beginner friendly, with no real chances of losing discs, and no holes that were too technical, so inexperienced players could be successful here. There was not enough challenge to make it very interesting to many higher level players, but it did have some really nice views.
