Pros: Just $8 to play what I think is one of the most challenging and fun courses around!
Cons: Very exposed, not too much tree cover so bring some water.
Other Thoughts: Some "great" courses can be difficult to find satisfying as a beginner. I found this course to be open-enough to make sure beginners don't get too frustrated with both elev changes AND trees. The placement of all the trees are just perfect. Is it hole #3 you're teeing off from essentially inside the tree? So many unique holes and in a beautiful setting. Makes me consider moving to the area.
Massive elevation changes and beautiful holes. Great tee pads and signage. I can't say enough great things about the course. I played with 2 locals who were great guys

Pros: Great course. Well designed and maintained. Lots of different pin positions that can change the course from par to bogey real fast, but always fun.
Great holes with lots of elevation change and trees to keep you digging through your bag for just the right disc.
Cons: $8 entry fee, but if you think you'll play it enough you can get a year pass for $80...10 times and it pays for itself.
Get out for the monthly on the second Saturday of each month and get to learn how to throw the course from some of the locals as well as making some great friends.

Pros: Stunning environment and picturesque holes
Excellent spectrum of elevation shots (uphill and downhill)
Great mix of short/technical and long/open shots
Pads are excellent, signage is great, fairways are lovingly tended but left fairly wild
Getting par on this course is a solid accomplishment
The locals are truly great folks. That's a fact.
Cons: It gets to triple digits in the summer (and 6 am becomes the best tee time), so take a buncha water
Keep an eye out for poison oak
During camping season, take care on fairways adjacent to the campsites
No swimming in the lake! That's a tough one when it's good and hot. But whatta ya gonna do, it's a reservoir.
Other Thoughts: This is where I fell in love with the game, and no small part of that was being in love with the course and the folks who created and maintain it.
The first hole is a dazzling downhill shot from the edge of a tall ridge, with a great view of the course, onto another hillside across water. From there, you hike up and around the hills overlooking beautiful blue Lake Casitas shooting long open drives, tight technical shots from under the trees (and through them), drives to holes 520 feet out (and 200 feet below) the tee, you name it.
On top of a first rate course, there's the added benefit that you can camp right there on the lake. And when I say right there, I mean your spot can be literally 40 feet from the nearest basket.
If you're in (or plan on being in) the Southern California area in the fall, The Coyote Pointe Classic is an outstanding tournament. The club reserves the campground that runs by holes 5 through 8 (with views of many more) for the tournament weekend, and the event is a blast. Can't tell you how much I dig getting up early, climbing out of the tent, making a cup of coffee, grabbin' discs and walking 10 or 20 paces to a teebox as the sun comes up over the lake.
