Pros: Nice LONG tee shots. If you want to work on distance driving, this is a good course. Nearby a lot of food places :)
Cons: "Boring" in that all the holes are basically straight shots from tee to hole. Very few obstacles. Very little shade. If you aren't good at driving, or are using beginning drivers, this can be frustrating.
Other Thoughts: I played on a hot summer day.... not a good idea. Not much shade. Better for a cooler day IMO.

 Good Practice Course

Pros: Nice park setting. Nine Mach III (or maybe IV) baskets and teepads. Short and most holes are wide open. Holes two is long with trees in front (only hole unreachable by average players) and hole three is a fun short anhyzer or a tunnel shot through trees. Lots of ace runs here. Practice basket and bathrooms near 1st teepad. Good beginner course.
Cons: Too short and open. The park gave up the least interesting area for this course. Not challenging to experienced players.
Other Thoughts: Once a month this course becomes a lot more fun and challenging. The Chainrackers host a $5 handicapped tournament with 18 alternate tees for 27 holes of disc golf fun. The alternates are not marked (except for tournaments), but provide extra distance and challenges to each hole. Tournaments are 2nd Sat. at 8:00 a.m.

Pros: The 9-hole disc golf course is in it's own dedicated area to the side of this large park. Despite the shorter distances, I actually found this course to be a fun scoring course. Would be a great wagering course with a buddy. Very clean grounds, with short mowed grass. Very nice teepads & signage. Free parking along with WiFi access.
Cons: Flat and easy, with few trees from holes 4-7. Finding the course and DG parking was not easy for my first time. Subsequent visits will be easier to access & more enjoyable.
Other Thoughts: Elk Grove Regional Park itself is quite a large park with a number of softball fields, and picnic areas. It even has a small man-made lake in the middle.
Uniqueness: B- (dedicated area; seems like an afterthought, tho)
Difficulty: C+ (flat; not long)
Fun factor: B (wish there were more trees)
Aesthetics: B+ (mowed grass; some litter)
Overall: B-

Pros: - Short holes give newer players a shot at success
- Level for the most part, reduces fatigue
- Wide open, good for long sweeping shots with understable plastic
- Easy to get through in about half an hour
- Rarely (if ever) busy
Cons: - Shortness can become a turn-off quickly
- Course is a bit too open - lack of challenge hurts its replay value
- A lot of hard, dusty ground in the summer
- Course suffers from some drainage and mud problems in the winter
- Pedestrian paths run through the course. A lot of people understand to be careful walking through there, but there are still a good number of people that stroll through the middle, either unaware or intentionally ignoring the fact that they're on a course with flying plastic. Be careful when you see people walking near.
Other Thoughts: This course is great for working on form, new styles of throwing, and introducing newer players to disc golf. The ease of the course really begins to wear on the player, though. I go to school nearby, so I do play there from time to time, although if it were feasible, I'd likely go to another course instead.

As a practice and screw-around course, this is great for getting a round in in between classes or on your lunch break.

There are an alternate set of tees with GPS locations listed on discgolfstats.com if you're looking to change up your game here. I would post them here, but there's no way to show them on DGCR. =/

Pros: IN Elk Grove Park just a couple minutes off HWY 99. Starts and ends by pool. 9 holes all with good tees and signs. Not much cross traffic. Very basic course with little to no obstacles to speak of. Impossible to lose disc unless you really and I mean really shank one off #1 and into the lake.
Cons: None I can really come up with. Maybe cut the weeds in the field that covers 99 percent of the course, but thats a stretch for a con
Other Thoughts: Restrooms, nice park and everything you expect with a nice city park. Free parking. Practice basket tucked on the east side of pool between the pool and the path to hole 1.
If your passing by stop and bust 9

 Surprisingly Fun

Pros: - fun first half layout
- it has signs and good baskets
- nice practice basket
- it plays fast and there aren't many other people there, disc golfers or otherwise
- the park has potential to have a great 18 hole layout if someone did a redesign and they could use more of the parkland farther away from the road
- lots of other park attractions, like a pool and nice bathrooms
Cons: - the last 4 holes are pretty much 100% wide open, which provides zero challenge
- small tees with not much grip
- dry and dusty
- boring
Other Thoughts: This course was fun, but I think that if someone did a redesign it could be a pretty good course and a nice addition to the Sacramento area courses.

If you're traveling on CA-99, it's worth a quick stop to stretch your legs. The first 5 holes are really fun and pretty well designed, but the course gets a little more boring as it brings you back to the parking lot. This is just a play-it-once course, unless you live in the neighborhood.

Pros: The first three holes are nice with a few tress to provide obstacles. Nice baskets. Good signage.
Cons: Short distance. The second half of the course is just open dirt with a straight shot at the basket about 200 feet away.
Other Thoughts: Even with all these potential aces, i walked away +1. A good basic 9 hole course.
