Pros: The Mother of all Disc Golf Pyramids. Almost every hole has at least a few trees in the way. Good long tees. Excellent views on a clear winter day. Very nice park, Dedicated disc golf only section although there are a few walkers and a few bike riders. Wide variety of people out playing, a feel good course. Good benches, ok map, ample parking. A doable course even on the long settings.
Cons: Needs water fountains for summer play I am sure. I played a day when everything was on it's longest setting, after a tournament, so the course map did not quite match the layout. Could use some more trees, that would help in heat I am sure and make the course even better. Baskets could use a marker or an arrow to the next tee. Fresno has only one course.
Other Thoughts: A fun course worth a visit and revisit. $5 to enter park, not a con.

Pros: + Easy navigation, with some great alternative tee boxes
+ Tee pads are in good condition
+ A mix of holes, some challenging and some straight forward
+ Great place for players of all levels, but probably on the easier side
Cons: - DRY... needs water badly and would have some more challenging holes with that water
- no grass and not many trees
Other Thoughts: Makes for a great place for me and my 3 sons to practice, never too busy.

Pros: * Enjoyable layout
* Good flow; fairly easy to navigate first time through
* Beautiful tee signs, nice tees
* Good variety which will appeal to players at all levels
* Some elevation change in the form of rolling hills
* The huge mound for basket 16 is kinda cool
Cons: * Hot and dusty. Might be nicer in the winter.
* No water available on or close to the course. There's a water fountain near a bathroom a couple hundred yards away.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed this course. A lot of the holes are fun to throw without being too easy or too hard. It's the kind of course where you'll have at least a few good holes.

Pros: I played early AM so there was only 3 other people out there. I thought the course was well laid out and provided a variety of shots ranging from somewhat challenging lines, to straight forward shot, to BOMBS.

I really enjoyed the last 5 holes which all had a uniqueness and different approach. I definitely recommend this course.
Cons: Like most courses, the map I found here wasn't the most accurate, and I think they might've rearranged the layout for holes 9-13, but who knows, first time at a new course without any local knowledge tends to yield some orienteering issues so I wasn't surprised.
Other Thoughts: There are definitely gopher holes, but not nearly as many as the other reviewers seemed to think. Maybe that's because I didn't roll and ankle, I didn't think it was as bad as some other courses.

I can see that you'd really need to bring your own water on a hot days. It's a dusty area and if the winds pick up or the sun is just beating down it could make for a less enjoyable experience. I played from about 630am-8am so there was none of these issues.

Woodward Park overall is a beautiful place.

 Nice quiet and LARGE

Pros: *Very large
*Multiple pin positions
*Some 500+ft holes
*Some elevation change
*Established area with large trees, natural obstacles
*Some of the longer holes have elevation changes, adding to the challenge
Cons: *HOT in summer (not related to course itself, but there is not a ton of shade)
*Facilities are far away when you get midway through the course
Other Thoughts: It has been some time since I've been here, but I have fond memories of the tourney I played. This course is fairly wide open, with some grass, some fast grass and some rocky terrain. For newbies, the distance on some holes can be a bit discouraging. All in all, quality course.

Pros: -Nice cement tee pads
-Good variety of hole distances and multiple basket locations for several holes.
-Easy course to find your way around.
-Several sitting areas throughout the course if you need a break
-Nice practice area to warm up with two baskets
-All holes have good tee signs

Cons: -Course is entirely dirt no grass what so ever.
-Only one water fountain located in between the 2nd and 3rd holes and is not the easiest to locate.
-Course can be very crowded at times
Other Thoughts: If you are going during the winter months they only charge for parking on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday ($5)... Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday parking is FREE...

Pros: -Nice tee boxes
-Lots of Benches
-Lots of pin locations
-Good blend of long and short holes
-Great views of the Sierras
-Disc Golf exclusive area (assuming the bikers stay where they're suppposed to)
-Decent tee signs

It's a fun course with enough trees to keep you honest and enough terrain to keep it fun and make you think to avoid the big skip and roll-aways.
Cons: I've only played here once when it wasn't a tournament and was very disappointed. The tournament course is one of my favorites, but the standard course is not nearly as fun.
Other Thoughts: I like this course and the locals, but from what I hear it's generally set-up super short to please the beginners and not generally set-up to maximize fun for all. All in all this is still a personal favorite and worth a stop is your in the area
