Pros: + First 4 holes have decent trees for challenge
+ Multiple tee spots and basket locations for variety
+ Decent shade on the first 4 holes
+ Baskets are in good condition
+ Mild hills add additional challenge
+ Somewhat secluded and quiet depending on time of day/week
Cons: - Last 5 holes wasn't thought out as well as they could have
- Hole 8 and 9 take you to a distant area that requires a decent walk back to start
- No shade for last 5 holes
- Stinging nettle and poison oak is around. Watch where you step.
- Some holes surrounded by fences touting "No Trespassing" and establishments have spread KY Jelly on the top of the fence so bring a towel to wipe off.
- Decent size creek runs along side some holes and no established way to cross. Again, bring towel to wipe off feet.
- Signage could use some upkeep
Other Thoughts: I play here a lot because it's close to work and I can spend an hour or so with friends. Has some variety in routes but the lack of thought put into the last 5 is a bit disappointing after a good start.

Pros: Don't have to pay. God first timers and there are always people there playing. Nice corse. The people who play there are friendly.
Cons: Some hold don't have sings there are a lot of rocks. Don't throw in the water. Hole 3 and 4 are long holes and the wind comes in to action and 8-9 has wind two

Pros: -There is a good variation of short/long holes.
-For the most part, each hole has multiple lines to take (although these favor RHBH thowers).
-Good course layout, not much overlap.
-Well placed tees make obstacles challenging, but not frustrating.
Cons: -Pretty much all holes favor RHBH throwers
-Hole 1 and 9 are on opposite ends
-Walking path runs next to the last 5 holes, so you have to be cautious with your throws
-No course upkeep. Grass is left to grow all winter, making it hard to find discs (Hole 4&5 especially).
Other Thoughts: -Hole 8 is next right next to creek, so you have to be careful when there's been rain.
-Look out for white tufts protruding from the ground. These are the alternate tee markers, if you want to make it "18" holes.

Pros: I liked it a lot. Relatively easy to follow. Pretty well marked (the last two holes - 8 & 9 - are unmarked). Fun, desert-y terrain. There was a softball game going on at the time I played, but that doesn't affect the disc golf course

Pros: Hole distances. Good baskets. Nice elevation changes. Gently wooded. A river that runs along a few holes. Pro tees on a few holes. (They are hard to find. Holes 2 and 8 have them maybe more). Not many people play it. Course is in good condition.
Cons: Most of the tees are too small but still usable. Hole one is difficult to locate. Hole 9's basket is kind of far from hole 1's tee. It's probably too wide open. (Not enough trees).
Other Thoughts: Good course. Not a lot of variety in shots needed. (Not really a con though). There are a few birdie opportunities. Good for beginners.

 There Is Some Scrambling Involved Here!

Pros: First of all, Livermore, CA is a beautiful little village.
The course here plays around the outskirts of the Ernie Rodriguez Softball complex. There's plenty of parking at the beginning. The course has rubber fly pads although a few are fairly rough and uneven. There is the standard Disc Golf Rules sign at the beginning. Small tee signs give you all the information needed like hole #, Par, distance, next tee and a map showing OB, trees, etc. Hole length range from 162' to over 400' and vary from technical to wide open.

My favorite was the shortie, # 2. It's just 162' but tight and technical to a basket just visible over a small ravine and a dry creek bed. It's very pretty while most holes on this course are borderline U-G-L-Y.
The baskets are DGA with the hole # on the inner tube. The wind was a factor later on the course out on more open holes.
Cons: As swatso says, there is a decent amount of scrambling up and down to be done here.
It's hot and there isn't a lot of shade.

You finish out at # 9 and then have to basically backtrack through about 5 holes to get back to the parking lot. Would be a problem during tournies or if ever busy.
Other Thoughts: IMO 8 & 9 were really boring. Felt more like they needed to get those last two holes in and then ran out of clever ideas.

# 2 saved this course for me. Take away that hole and I didn't find much here to excite me. Terrible long walk back after #9, hot dusty and not pleasant to look at and mostly uninspiring holes. But I thought the little town of Livermore was absolutely charming.

Pros:
A few baskets set on plateaus.
Cons:
If you thought scrambling up to basket-6 was a bit awkward, wait until ...
If you thought scrambling up to basket-7 was a bit difficult, wait until ...
If you thought scrambling down to tee-8 was a bit dangerous, wait until ...
You walk through several fairways to return to the parking lot - stay alert.
Other Thoughts:
After number-1, starting near the corner of the parking lot, and throwing over some bushes/small trees, the bulk of the course is set in the undeveloped land located behind softball/soccer fields of a public park. The next three left-tuning holes bring the few available trees into play - a early jail cell (#2), a row of trees (#3), and similar #4, albeit over twice as long as #3. The remaining holes are mostly/wide open, with three of them being dead flat (5,8,9), and 6-7 having elevation gain.

Number-7 is probably the most interesting hole, as it requires nearly immediate elevation gain, has an early tree left, bushes and a fence a bit farther right, and a runaway slope late left.

Basic teesigns sufficient. Rubber mat teepads adequate in length, but a bit bumpy. Navigation simple enough with the online map. Several holes were baskets/tees/fairways are quite close to the holes - e.g. a reasonable drive on number-6 could either fly over basket-2 or tee-7.

RHBHers will be pretty comfortable here.

Pros: -Good variety of skill shots and bombs
-Well maintained
-Excellent parking
-Sensible layout with good flow
Cons: -Blackberry bushes
-Baseball field makes for an annoying OB when you have to go around the fence.
-Could do more with the terrain, fit in a few more tricky holes
Other Thoughts: A great course for a newer player, and a very serviceable course for the veteran.

 One hyzer short

Pros: RHBHyzer, Hyzer, Hyzer, Hyzer...
Cons: Missing one hyzer
Other Thoughts: I joke but this is a pretty nice layout for the area that the park covers. The designers have utilized a lot of the varied terrain and have a range of distances, but almost all of the holes have been created for a RHBH hyzer shot...

Pros: I played two days in a row at this park to get a good feel for it before a tournament.

-Good mixture of short/challenging holes and longer shots that allow you to 'air it out' so to speak

-Pretty much empty. I played on a Saturday/Sunday and only ended up running into one other player (who I happened to know)

-Every pin has a basket and a well marked tee sign. There are no 'blind shots' for better or worse~

-Fenced baseball diamonds nearby if you want to do some field work on a certain throw

-Very clean, I didn't come across any litter in my time there

-Easy to get to, if you are coming from the east bay just exit on North Livermore Ave, turn right and continue for 2.5 miles or so until you see the park on the right

-My favorite hole is #2, it's about 150 feet skill shot that wraps around a corner. My route is using a disc that will come back hard and flicking around lightly to the left(xcaliber) or right up the middle with my putter (ridge)
Cons: -Tee pads are horrible. They are not rubber, they are not concrete, they are dirt-- many times these dirt tee pads have giant holes and rocks all throughout them so getting a good footing can be a problem at times.

-When you finish the course, you basically have to walk through the course again to get out, rather than end somewhat near the starting point. It's walk through the course again, or spend 2x longer trying to walk around the Church~

-River on the backside with holes 8/9 on the left hand side. Be careful around it, saw a couple people lose discs while we are over there. I personally consider the river being a bit of a pro, but for some it could lead to frustration so aim right.
Other Thoughts: Tee One was hard to find the first time there (turns out its right next to the parking lot lol). We ended up making up our own tee by the bleachers which ended up being a pretty sweet little putter hole.

This course is definitely a beginner course, but there are some good practice shots. Hole 4 is a tough hole to get a 2 on because it's hard to get proper placement to make your up shot. Play for a three there and shoot for a two on everything else~

The Disc Golf Club 'Hyzer Than You' is often around the area, if you happen to see one of them they are very nice guys.
