Pros: -Great New T-Pads
-Great new markers at the pads
-Multiple pin locations
-A combination of wide open elevation changes with a few holes along a wooded path next to the creek.
-Fantastic views of the foothills and mountains in the surrounding area.
-Great course to bring new friends and grow the game
Cons: -No water
-Pay to Park for non pass holders
Other Thoughts: I hadn't play'd this course in a few years because the last two times I played I rolled my ankle on the rough T-Pads and stopped coming because the second time was pretty serious.
I heard a rumor that the course got some funding for new pads and I was pleasantly surprised. The New pads are rubber and very well done. and the new markers at each pad are beautiful. There are also now multiple pin placements that take advantage of the surrounding landscape very nicely. I went at 8am this Sunday and I had the course to my self. I finally saw another group of golfers while I was finishing on 18.
They also relocated tee's 5 and 7 to the side of the path instead of right on it. 5 even has its own walking path down to it and is the nicest tee on the course. I posted a picture of it.
You still need to bring water and there is no street parking so if you do not have a county park pass you need to pay to park.
There are also a lot of adolescent trees and shrubs that have been planted around the course that as they grow will completely change the look of the course and present new challenges.
Previously I would have told an out of towner they weren't missing much if they passed on Crane Creek but now I would recommend it as a must hit for Sonoma County.

  Good Basic Course

5+    1/10/2015   1/31/2015
Review By: irecycle
Played: 1  Reviewed: 1
Pros: Clearly marked and well maintained
Great course for folks entering the sport
Plenty of wide open holes for working on shots
Some technical shots
Cons: Tall grass in spring, early summer
No water in park. Bring your own.
Can be hot in summer with little shade, especially on back 9.
OB shots on west side of back 9 are not retrievable.
Tee boxes need updating. I understand that is on the radar of the UFO's.
Other Thoughts: Support the Regional Parks and buy an annual Parks Pass! (Good at Taylor Mtn Course as well!)

Pros: - short / manageable basket locations
- wide open, no obstacles
- easy to locate the next tee pad
- practice basket available
Cons: - small parking area, will cost you $7 to park
- grass is tall and dry
- ticks are everywhere
- bad signage; no distinguish what hole you were throwing from or which basket you were throwing to. Had to run to a few baskets to make sure we were throwing at the right one
- bad tee boxes; need updated or repaired
- blind shots, must have spotter to make sure you are not throwing into other park users
- overcrowded (at least when we were there)
- course map seemed outdated
Other Thoughts: A few other things that I could not place in the pro or con boxes. There were several other groups out on the course when we were there. These other players were a bit discurteous of us while we were playing. There were a few groups that insisted on us letting them pass through and even a few groups that skipped holes to go around us. We had a few rogue discs fly into us with a head up or a "fore". There are a few other courses in the area that I would recommend playing before coming back to this one. I was impressed by the Languanitas Brewery, which we went to after our round of play. They have discs there for purchases with their logo.

 A good place to get right

Pros: Open fairways, short grass, hard to lose a disc.
Holes 5,6,7 fun and have anhyzer (RHBH) basket placement
Never had a bad time.
Wide skill level of golfers here. (I think that is a good thing) including some SSU golf members.
Most if not all holes parable. (Almost can shoot par on this course, before the summer for sure)!!

Cons: Lacks a little variation. 11-18 don't vary that much in distance or terrain. (If you are locked in, you can throw the same shot and disc over the last several holes.)
Toilet is a covered outhouse.
Lots of walkers (always courteous though) on course.

Other Thoughts: A good place to work on your game. Wide open fairways, straight approaches to baskets. I wish there was a bit more variation with distance. Most seem to be around 280-320ft.
Nice group of golfers play here.
Go to Penngrove (10 min) and get a sausage and beer afterwards to cap off your day.

Played: 13  Reviewed: 11  Exp: 4.5 Years
Pros: A few holes that are challenging due to trees and hills.
Clean. Well kept.
Holes easy to follow
Cons: Spring, Early Summer TICKS
Wear GATORS in the spring/early summer

Pros: Clean park. Easy to follow course. Seemed like the tees were in the "A" position. Great for beginners as an entry level course. Rolling hills were doable for my 74 year old father.
Cons: Parking fee ( but it was free for us with my day's Golden Park Pass). Beware of poison oak.
Other Thoughts: Don't throw pale yellow discs in summer.

  Decent course

Pros: Good course for beginners getting into the sport- Wide open on most holes, short and long pin locations with very little obstructions/obstacles.
Cons: Tee pads are crushed stone, instead of concrete, which seem to work okay if they're freshly hard packed, but most of the time they have ruts and are not smooth/flat from frequent use. The course lacks shade structures, trash bins, benches, and trees/obstacles on the course.
Other Thoughts: It's a decent course, but has potential to be a better course. Great to see the improvement efforts by the United Flyers of Sonoma who pour in a lot of time and energy to make the course bettter everyday. Still a long way to go until it's at the caliber of other surrounding courses. Until then, making the drive to other courses is worth it.

 Crane Creek Improved!

Pros: The local club has been POURING effort into this course. New teepads and pin placements. If you haven't played this course in 2013, you will be surprised with the many improvements and change in difficulty level. No longer is this course a birdie extravaganza. Good players may be happy to get a bogey on a few holes.
Cons: Same, same.
Other Thoughts: Come check out the new changes!

Pros: Beautiful area. Almost every hole birdie-able. Many ace runs. Holes 5-7 play through a moderately wooded area with a small creek running through and are the only somewhat technical holes on the course. Good elevation change on a couple holes. A few basic signs remaining at a few holes. Some holes have multiple pin positions. A couple holes over 325'. Hole 15: long hole (500'+) with the basket on the edge of a hill. Restrooms and trash/recycling cans near parking lot. Nice views and scenery throughout the course.
Cons: $7 pay to park. Natural tees with some gravel. Some tees had standing water on them when I played. Almost all holes are wide open shorter holes. Most of the signs are missing. No trash cans or benches on course, except for one bench at hole 16 (best place for it actually, if you're only going to have 1). Most holes play flat despite the terrain. The layout is very weak for the available land. Only 3 or 4 holes require any sort of technical shot. Overall not very challenging. Very sloppy and muddy when I played.
Other Thoughts: This course could be great with a new layout and maybe some added trees or bushes at least. The available land is great terrain for disc golf, but the course layout is sad. When I arrived and looked around I was expecting much more. Holes 5-7 were cool, but even those could have been done much better. The $7 fee to park is a little steep, especially considering that this course is not very good. The rangers come by frequently to check cars. I saw one guy getting a ticket for not paying. Not sure how much; I didn't stick around to ask. Very muddy right now so bring extra towels and maybe even extra socks and a plastic bag to put your shoes in. I will not be back until they change the layout.

Pros: 18 baskets
Pretty area
Clean course and park.
Some elevation change makes distances tough to gauge.
Would be easy to get a quick round in here if it wasn't busy.
There were a couple of neat holes that provided a challenge.
The hills provided some roll away potential adding challenge.
The course is one of the only in the area.
Cons: Tees were in bad shape.
$7 parking fee seemed a little much.
wide open course offered little in the way of challenge.
Signage in bad shape or completely gone.
Holes are really stacked up on each other in this small park.
Other Thoughts: It is a course, and one of the only courses in the area so that is a bonus. The $7 fee didn't seem to deter anyone from playing and it was busy when we were there. I would play it again, but I would not go out of my way to play this course. It is wide open with very few obstacles and little challenges.
