Pros: If you get a chance to play here, do so!
Clearly marked. Very well maintained (clean+). Very good tee pads. Incredible scenery.
Holes presented lots of challenges with plenty of variation.
Hole 3 was particularly fun with a shortish (bhrh) hyzer out over the canyon and back.
Even though there were lots of challenging shots, there were not that many places to loose a disc. Perhaps hole 7 is the exception as you need to clear a lot of gnarly scrub. New players might be wise to skip this tee and move down past the scrub.
The surface of rock and clay is little different than usual. It helps you break in your discs😁 but it also encourages you to consider changing your shot selection due to unpredictable rolls and skips.
Everyone we met was super nice, and you could see the pride they have in their course.
Portable outhouse on site.
Cons: No donation box (don't worry, we will find a way).
No free beer and hot tub for after the round.
Other Thoughts: Thanks as always to the volunteers.

Great All Around Course
1 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: Gorgeous views of Chico and the surrounding canyons. Peregrine Point offers something for all levels of disc golfers. Long holes, short holes, bomber holes and tight holes You are required to use not just hyzer forehands but every shot in the bag. Lots of birdie opportunities, but get a little sideways and pars can quickly turn into double bogeys. The front nine is my favorite side, with a great deal of variety. The course is well taken care of by the city and the locals. other players always wiling to help with directions and looking for wayward discs.
Cons: No hole descriptions or distances, but great course map online. If it was 600 feet longer it would be a 5.0, but several of the holes are not really punitive of bad tee shots and par recoveries are very simple.
Other Thoughts: It is a very rocky course so bring dupes of your go to discs. No place for water or any pro shop or trash cans throughout the course, so you have to pack everything in and out. Like I said above a little easy (I was 7 over and have only been playing 3 months), but so beautiful and a lot of fun shots. It is a course that once you play it you will go back over and over again.

Thank you Chico Outsiders
Pros: Great views and lots of different looks. This course makes me feel at home. I love the length and catching a look over the bluff. Nice tee pads and sexy baskets. I can't say enough good things about this course.
Cons: The only two things I can mention aren't possible due to county issues. This course could be 27 holes all with multiple pin locations but I am just happy the course made it through the restrictions and opposition of the county. Thank you Chico disc community and The Outsiders
Other Thoughts: Can't wait to rip a shot on hole 3 soon.

My favorite so far
Pros: Nice long t offs
Clear flags to tell you where you are throwing
Wildlife everywhere and great view of chico and upper bidwell at holes 3-7.
I enjoy hole 7 because you can go through the labyrinth, some hate, I love it!
You get great exercise and you are doing something fun while doing it
Cons: It's not flat, there are lava rocks everywhere so be advised to watch where you walk.
A gulch at #3 and sometimes alternate #4 you just might lose your disc if not careful.
#14 make sure it doesn't go far left because you will end up digging through poison
oak...just wash with cold water when you get home.
For the ladies no restrooms along the way so go before hand or bring tp. :)
Other Thoughts: Bring water, hats. sunscreen, snacks.

Pros: Most shots appeared blind until you take a second to locate off in the distance, over a hill, or across a cliff up onto another one. I loved this, opposed to the directly out in front with a few trees blocking. There was tons of elevation to make things more of a challenge. The terrain was awesome.
Cons: I can see this course in the Summer being a scorcher. Hearing that the park closes when rained on was a worry about its playability but wasn't an issue. Some signs to indicate both location and distance would make this even better.
Other Thoughts: Sherwood Forest was a fun nine hole to star the day but Peregrine is IT, nothin but top notch.

Pros: I have to admit, the course was technically "closed" yesterday, but I was traveling through town all the way from WA state & had some time on my hands, so I wanted to check this course out.....even if just to stop by and walk it a bit!
I could tell right away that the Outsiders have dropped some serious money & time on this course.
Great signage. Great concrete tee pads. The baskets were solid, numbered, and a couple of them had huge flags on top which helped with showing the current wind direction as well as the general location of the basket on the up-shots. Genius!
The scenery made me stop a couple of times just to take in the vast valley beyond the course. I loved the fact that if you mess up, your disc WILL be lost over the cliff. It just made me huck my DX Wraith that much harder & with confidence with my backhand toss on hole 3 & 6.
All of the hawks (I know why it's named Peregrine Point now!) & other avian were such a treat too.
Simply a great 18 hole course, worthy of traveling to play.
Cons: Hard to find the turnoff off Hwy 32. Just know that it is DIRECTLY across from Dean's Paintball Guns/Tailor Park & the Sierra Nevada Adopt-a-Hwy sign. Slow down considerably!
This course was technically closed at the time due to heavy, continual rains during this past week. While I understand why this is needed (heavy traffic on this erosion-happy cliff-sided course on a wet day would absolutely desecrate the beautiful landscape), it would still make me a bit sad if this was my local course. I'm sure that the non-peak rain seasons would more than make up for the few months that this would be a factor though. I'm not too sure what the weather is like in Chico, but it can't be nearly as bad as our weather up in the PNW!!
Other Thoughts: Just a beautiful, scenic course (period). This is one course that is a must play if you're in, around, or passing through Chico. My girlfriend & I decided that we'd never been to Chico, and given the choice to stay the night there or in Redding, we chose the former. Plus, I looked up the courses in each place and Chico won!
So happy that I was able to play this course!

Beautiful and Very Fun Course
Pros: Very beautiufl and extremely fun course. Nice pads and trails. Easy to find your disc. Long and short holes. My favorite course
Cons: Lose your disc on the cliff holes. Poison Oak can be a problem.
Other Thoughts: This a great course for a begginer, intermediate or pro. It really can challenge you, but it is possible to shoot a very low score
