Pros: great combination of shots- uphill, downhill, narrow hallways, open land. impressive layout. very easy to navigate. most baskets are visible from tee pad, clean and well-maintained. great signs and next-tee arrows.never crowded (and if so its always a nice santa cruz crowd). always FREE parking.
Cons: hole #1 is kinda weird. (at least they finally put a red tee line on the concrete) out-of-bound areas need to be marked (the road on #1 is out-of-bounds, and the parking lot gravel on #4 apparently is too). no smoking/drinking. shot distances on many holes seem questionable (need to be remeasured for correct pin placements). cant play during school hours.
Other Thoughts: great for all ages, beginners and pros. nice clean secluded area. top of the world shot is very cool! honestly, one of my favorite courses. i shot 10 over my first time, and 2 over my second time (after respecting a few tricky shots...lol). hard to lose a disc here (except on baskets #6, #7 and #8 you might be looking for a minute)... beware on hole #7 (theres a huge drop-off), and hole #8 (top of the world) you might need a spotter, theres a few kinda boring shots after such exciting ones... but, for it being a full 18 course and its location- id say it gives Dela a run for its money... and its close to Aptos Street BBQ!!!!!!

Pros: Mostly wide open, with only a few really tight fairways. Great for beginners( I play there once or twice a week with my 5 yr old.) Never crowded. The number 8(old 7) is one of those great shots from the top of the hill with the baskets tucked into a group of trees. Signage has really improved and is very easy to navigate for first time visiters. Big thanks to Jake Russo for designing and putting in this fun course.
Cons: Poison Oak is on every hole. Can't play during school hours.(Poison oak is still everywhere, but a lot has been taken out of the fairways)
Other Thoughts: This is where I learned to play and its 3 mins from my house. I would like to see a practice basket and a donation box put in. Usually though you can warm up on the #4 basket, since no one is ever there.Jake has made a donation box and will be putting it up soon on #1.
