Needs some work
Pros: + Some challenging holes with trees
+ Trees offer some good shade
Cons: - No tee pads
- Definitely needs more course signs, holes were hard to follow... still don't know where the first tee pad was??
- Weekends brought a lot of folks in the park, which made it harder to play at your own pace
Shady Park on a Hot Summer Day
Pros: Summer Shade , a good amount of trees make for obstacles on every hole, bathroom, ample parking, small hills as part of the course, a couple of ponds in the park, worth a stop if driving by on 99, nice salsa music nearby, family park, can make 11 holes by playing from 9 to 2 and then back to 1.
Cons: 9 holes, no tee pads, kind of had to make it up or look for worn patches of grass, hard to navigate as most signage was destroyed, no water fountains away from bathroom, imagine it is tough to play when crowded
Other Thoughts: We played on Sunday AM and it was a nice way to break up a long drive. Tees would push this to a 3.0, Tee 1 is near northwest corner of west parking lot.

Pretty Green Park With Rolling Hills!
Pros: Lions Town & Country Park is a pretty, green park with all these lovely rolling hills and 100's of trees .
The course has a course map at the beginning. It has these great colored, fiberglass tee signs. They give you all the information you need but unfortunately they are attached to trees so I found them a little bit more difficult to locate as this park has about a million trees. I had a really difficult time trying to navigate this course starting right at the beginning. The first sign I actually found was the # 3 sign. I guess I wasn't looking for tee signs in the trees. It actually was a great sign with all the needed information on it.
There are no tee pads. Many times, you are teeing off the sidewalks.
The course has nice Innova baskets with the yellow band. I did find a white arrow painted on the grass. It help lead me to # 6 which is a straight 360' Par 4. # 7 was a little Par 2 180' ACE run. I then found a very faint white tee box painted on the grass.
# 5 was my favorite hole here. It's 273' (or 91 yards) to a basket set down in a valley of smallish trees. You really have to keep your drive low here on this very pretty little hole.
# 7 is a 348' (116 yards) (Remember what I taught you students) downhill shot. It's a possibly fun ACE run for those possessing a decent arm.
# 9 is a 357' (I've given up trying to educate you fellows) with dangers on both sides. There is a parking lot on your right and a ball field on your left. Stay in the middle, please.
The course loops back to the beginning.
Cons: Course was a nightmare for me to navigate.
No tee pads or signs. Some helpful arrows painted on the grass helped a little but they're fading.
The closet basket to the beginning has a # 18 on it. Isn't this a 9 hole course?
Pars listed are for children like 180' Par 4.
Other Thoughts: Adding some concrete tee pads would go a long way toward pleasing most disc golfers.
This is really a fine course for a course, nice and shady in this hot country but this course with no tee pads, signs in the trees and a few painted arrows on the grass.
A next arrow signing hanging from the chains would be a great help here. This course is such a waste of the City's and Park's and Rec Department's budget. Next time, get some advice from someone is in the disc golf community.

Pros: Nice signs and baskets.
Lots of trees ad difficulty to shots.
Cons: No tee pads.
Course is short...2 holes less than 200ft.
Couldn't find the sign for 8th hole.
Other Thoughts: There are no tee pads. I read there would be dirt t pads but thee isn't even that. Each hole a sign, but no indication of where to actually throw from. Left of the sign, right of the sign, in front, behind. There was hardly a worn spot in the grass so show where locals threw from and picking one side of the tree or other would greatly effect shot choice. I tried to use the signs but they offered little clue.

Pros: beautiful park, good set up for what they have, great hole layout signage
Cons: short only 9 holes, public park, so can get very crowded, not to much difference in the holes
Other Thoughts: not too bad for what it is, if you have nowhere else to play its good for practice

Madness in Madera
Pros: -Course sign to show you lay out as u pull in
-awesome directions to next tee
- Course plays mainly thru moderately wooded park
- Easy to Navigate
-Every hole sign has number, distance and layout of the hole but also has the whole course layout in the bottom right hand corner.
-Alternate Tee pads on 4-8 which change the shot quite a bit.
- Mad Town Bombers local club has double every thursday night at 530 pm
Cons: - lay out is a bit funky
- Tee pads are natural
- Almost all the hole have the same feel to them.
- Long walk from 9 to parking lot
Other Thoughts: All in all this course surprised me as it plays through a ver nicely wooded and large park Each hole required some shot shaping some more than others. Also, when i played it seemed like this course was a work in project at it looks like it is going to be an 18 hole course in the future.
