Less than enjoyable conditions
Pros: -Good hole variation
-Would probably have enjoyed this course more if not in Fresno
Cons: -Poor terrain (all sand/dirt)
-Poor terrain variation (see above)
-Poor air quality in Fresno
-Rolled ankle on one of the many many depressions in the ground
-Was hotter than blazes!
Other Thoughts: If this course was moved to a more temperate area with better air quality, the score would be bumped up maybe a whole point.

very nice course
Pros: 18 holes, 3 locations for every hole that are changed randomly every month so the course isn't always the same, well maintained, beautiful location.
Cons: wish there was grass throughout the course
Other Thoughts: I love it,I play it whenever I can, its really helped me grow to love this sport, exspecially with a legit course right here in fresno

Fun 18 With Great Scenery
Pros: Fun easy layout that is fairly simply to navigate. Very low chance of losing a disc. Fairly secluded with fantastic 360 views. Moderately to lightly wooded. Some decent elevation change throughout course, although most hole play pretty flat. Some memorable holes. Seasonal ponds and drainage ditches (although when I played they were completely dry) in play on 3-4 holes. 2 practice baskets, ample parking, and facilities on site. Concrete tees (1) and signs with hole layout, pin locations, and distances on every hole. Multiple pin locations on most holes (only 3 or 4 only have 1 I believe).
Cons: Fairly open with little shade. Only one tee on each hole. Fairly easy course with many wide open shots and no really long holes. The only water on the course is seasonal. Most holes play very flat despite numerous hills throughout the course. Pay to play ($5 per car). There are many holes in the fairways and throughout the course due to ground squirrels, which can make it easy to roll an ankle if you're not careful, and can make it hard to spot your disc if it lands in one (one of my shots landed deep in one and it took me a couple minutes to find it). The deep right pin placement on hole 6 brings hole 7's tee into play.
Other Thoughts: Very fun course to play for the first time, but due to its simplicity and low difficulty it is not one I personally would want to play regularly. That said, there are great views and scenery throughout the course and it would be a great course for beginner/intermediate disc golfers. I would like to play this course when the ponds and ditches are full as it would make some holes significantly more challenging.

Ground Squirrel Heaven!
Pros: The course is set up in it's own area of a large sprawling park so it's disc golf exclusive. There are nice views of Fresno from the upper reaches. The concrete pads, baskets and signs are all in good shape making it relatively easy to navigate. The temps were great in early spring. With only two holes over 400' and only two others over 300', it's definitely an intermediate course at best.
The pole hole (#16? or # 17?) is pretty cool. Was is orginally built as something else? I don't think disc course designers/builders built up that massive structure, did they?
Two practice baskets are good and a nice staging area would be ideal for tournies. Plenty of parking.
Cons: It's a fairly straight forwarded course. Most of the holes are pretty bland, flat and not overly imaginative. I'm sure it would get really hot and dusty out there in the swelteriing Fresno summer days. Not much shade or water.
You really need to watch where your walking to keep from stepping in the ground squirrel holes. They're everywhere!
$5 entry each time would get old.
Other Thoughts: This would be a decent little home course for a older rec player like me. The challenge is isn't there for advanced players and beyond. I could play it many times and enjoy what it offers. The weather from Septermber to May would be perfect disc throwing weather.

-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

-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.

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...

Decent time in Fresno
Pros: -Cement Tees (and good sized ones)
-Mix of long and short holes
-Multiple pin location on most holes
-Course is separate from the rest of the park
-Benches at most holes
-Easy to navigate
Cons: -Course was crowded
-As a single player I found that other players were very rude about letting people play through (one guy threw 4 discs while I was waiting at the pad)
-It wasn't while I played, but I know this course would be hot in the summer.
-5 $ to get into the park
Other Thoughts: I played this course while I was driving back from Bakersfield and I found it worth my while to stop and play. I would of had a great time if other players would have been a bit more courteous, but I know that is just how it is sometimes. The overall park that the course is in was pretty awesome and would be great for a BBQ. If your in the area I recommend playing this course.

Decent, Nothing Exceptional
• Course is separate from other areas of the park
• Decent layout, but the landscape precludes having much variety
• $5 park entry fee
• Course layout can be confusing
• Some needless backtracking on a number of holes
• The hole 1 tee and kiosk are difficult to find for first-timers
Other Thoughts: Decent course, but nothing unique. If you are in the area, there's no other options.
Fresno was so hot the day we played, we kind of rushed through the course but still enjoyed the round.
Pretty much a flat landscape, so not much in the way of hole variety but the designers did well with what they had to work with.
The course was kind of confusing at certain holes, and some of them just backtracked for no reason, seeing as how they had a wide-open area to work with.
Not worth a specific trip to play, but if you are in the area or passing through as I was, worth a quick round.

Pros: Great Signs with accurate distances
Great flow with no backtracking
Baskets all in good condition
Multiple pin positions
tries players' long and short games
great community of local players from am to pro
separated from the rest of the park so there's usually no bystanders, picknickers, or people in general in the way of throws.
Cons: $5 dollar park entry free
course can be very weedy
in the summer, it's hot
not very many technical shots
the course can be too forgiving
Other Thoughts: this is my home course that i play regularly. It's a very fun and relaxing course to play. The community of players offer a lot of fun events and game types regularly which is a good way to play with better players which inspires learning.
