  Great Mid-Level Course

Pros: *Course wraps around the one of the highest points in the park, creating sweeping views of the valley below and backdrop of Sonoma Mtn. and vineyards.
*Different elevation changes make it a great course for the intermediate player.
*Seasonal creek adds element to hole 5 and possible hole 3, during the Winter months.
*Breezes from the advancing marine layer (fog) creates additional challenges on many of the open holes.
*Easy to follow layout with Hole 9 being a short hike back to parking lot, while Hole 18 ends at parking lot.
*Round times can play fairly short, so a round can play fairly fast.
*OB fence line comes into play on holes 8, 12, 14 & 15.
Cons: *90% of holes are open.
*Possible equestrian and hiker issues.
*Very dry in summer so very high fire danger.
*Ticks can be a problem, be sure to check when finished with round, especially in Spring when grass is green and tall.
Other Thoughts: This course took 9 years to get put back in. It was first installed around 1982, but was pulled because of environmental concerns when the park's general plan was not followed. The new course now follows the original plan and thus the reason why other areas of park aren't used.

Very easy-to-follow course, even w/o a map - can see the current basket from current tee, except for #7 (right turn past bushes), and can usually find the next tee by following a worn path away from the basket. A few benches. Nice, long views of neighbouring countryside, including a vineyard.
$6 to enter. At times plays along walking trails. Single tee (gravel)/basket. Little variation.
Other Thoughts:
This course plays in a counter-clockwise fashion around a very gently sloping hill. Most shots have minimal elevation change - about four up, two down - and these changes aren't overly dramatic. Except for a moderate right-turn on #7, and a similar left-turn on #8, all holes play pretty much straight on. Baskets and flightpaths, for the most part, are wide open. Holes range in distance from just over 200' to just under 400', with 2/3rds of them being in the 230-300' range, and only a couple over 350'. What this leaves you with is a course very suitable for beginners/intermediates to develop upon, and a birdie fest venue for more advanced players.

A couple of tips: After finishing #7, make a hard left to find tee #8. The constant steady breeze makes discs fly a bit more understable, and makes putting a bit more difficult.

Pros: The one and only pro that I can think of for this course is it is great for the beginner disc golfer. It is very open and very short and easy to play for that level of player. Scenery is beautiful. Course is in the middle of wine country and vineyards can be seen all around while playing. Great picture opportunities. Tee pads are ground slate/dirt.
Cons: Any level of player above beginner will probably not enjoy this course as it is not challenging enough. Way to open and way to short. $6 dollars to park and play is kind of tough if it was the only course for you to play. Absolutely NO SHADE and NO WATER. Best to play this course in the cooler months as the sun is brutal especially bouncing off of all the dead straw grass.
Other Thoughts: If your driving through wine country and have an itch to play you can scratch it here.

Pros: it is a nice park with many nice views of the valley, easy to follow course
Cons: the tees are a little loose and kinda small, the wind can bee pretty strong, and some alternate pin positions would break it up. $6 to park is a little high,no shade to speak of, no water of any kind
Other Thoughts: why didn't it go through the other side of the park where there are more trees and interesting features to utilize as obsticales

Pros: -Open course.
-Difficult to lose discs.
-Fun rolling hills.
-Good elevation changes on multiple shot.
- Can see pins from most tee pads.
- Great easy to follow course layout. Start and finish right at the parking lot.
- Plenty of reachable pins with birdie opportunities
- Wind can make things a bit more challenging
- Great view of vineyards/hills
Cons: - Not really any challenging holes. No technical shots.
Other Thoughts: Great course if you're looking for a fun intermediate course for most skill levels. Not a course I'd pay $6 to play over and over. Fun for groups.
