Pros: The course plays through a nicely kept city park. The fairways are grassy with some nice mature trees. Several of the holes have low ceilings to navigate, and most have enough trees in place to keep things interesting. The course isn't very long, but it does a nice job of using the available trees to encourage a variety of different shots. The tees are a mix of nice rubber pads and marked areas on the sidewalk, both offer perfectly fine footing. The park is really nicely kept, and the signage is plenty adequate to follow the course.
Cons: There are a ton of safety issues here. Most of the shots play along or over walking paths, and they seem to get a pretty good amount of traffic. There are also several spots where the next tee is in the line of fire from the previous hole. The holes are very short, this is just a putter course for most experienced players. There are some places where the course encourages different lines but you can still get by with nothing but hyzers.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will find this course very approachable and fun, with reasonable lengths and enough trees to make some cool holes. Experienced players won't find the course very challenging, but it is a fun quick putter round if it's not a time when the walking path is busy. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way for this one, but it does have some holes worth throwing if you're nearby.

Pros: The first time I played this course was when it was the 18 hole layout. The course was really fun but not all targets were baskets and some holes shared baskets. I came back a year later while visiting family that live in Irvine and played the course several times, my map I had was much different so we went inside the parks building. A huge pro to this course was the staff. They were super helpful in pointing people in the right direction and giving very nice easy to read maps. They also had discs to borrow. This was a good play.
Cons: Some cons that I recall off the top of my head were there was a lot of people walking around getting in the way of the disc golfers. One of the tees is right next to a playground and others are right a long main streets. On hole 6 my cousin threw his disc and it hit a garage door of a near by house. We went to get the disc and the old lady who lived there had taken our disc hostage. We demanded it back but she said she had taken many discs and frisbees over the last few months and she was not budging. I pulled my phone out and said I was gonna call the Po and I told her she was a thief and she gave it back. But the people around the course are not too disc golfer friendly.
Other Thoughts: Over all pretty good course, hole 7 is a great Ace chance, I hit the basket twice and chains once, in that same day we saw two people ace it as well. I will play this course again but only because it is two minutes from my cousins house.

Pros: They did a great job at the space they have, short holes mean here come the aces.Good baskets, good tees, extremely easy to follow. Trees provide for a little thought to your throw. That's all you can really say about this course.
Cons: Its Irvine, CA, I shouldn't have to say much more past that. Other park users have no clue what is going on, they climb in trees and do not listen to any type of warnings of a disc flying straight at them. This course has come under fire in the past because of the brainless people that use this park for everything other than disc golf.

The people that work at this park are nothing but Cop callers. I warn you now DO NOT DRINK OR SMOKE POT ON THIS COURSE!!! I have seen multiple times the workers ask what people are drinking EVEN WHEN THEY ARE DRINKING OUT OF A PEPSI CAN ETC. I play here all the time because it is local to me and I can't drive to the real courses everyday. We have had the cops come to harass us on multiple occasions claiming they received calls of people drinking etc in the park, and what do you know..they never find what they were called for.

So bottom line is..other park users almost ruin this course, employees of the park are out of control, it is extremely short. A TON OF BEGINNERS COME HERE IN HUGE GROUPS SOME TIMES. Newer people don't really pay attention and skip holes thinking they are playing the correct course.
Other Thoughts: More cons than pros. Its a solid course, its very short. Just don't go out of your way to come here. Go play HB or La Mirada.
