Awesome course, challenging, wind can be rough
- Great teepads
- Basket type catches well
- Big arm shots are a great contrast to the nearby GGDGC
- Stunningly beautiful views on a great golf course
- Beverages onsite
- Gets windy as the day goes by
- Consider getting a cart, it's a bit long in the heat but doable if you want exercise
- Needs "next tee" markers for sure, I believe they are on order
- Not free but that should be expected*
This is course is excellent considering how new it is, still has some work left to make it great but there are no major faults.
*It's tough to call out the cost as a con, because the owners of this property do an excellent job at upkeep despite very limited resources. I will gladly pay the greens fees, because we need this place to continue doing well so that it gains popularity

Pros: This course is absolutely fantastic. By far the best on a ball golf course I have ever played. Challenging variety of shots, awesome teepads and a very nice flow. Rarely have to wait for golfers or disc golfers. And the clubhouse is definitely a win win situation.
Cons: Going left of the basket on 16 is dangerous at best as there is tons of debris from over the years that you step through.
Other Thoughts: Someday I will play this in the morning without the blustery wind, but for now my wind game is slowly improving because of this course. Still learning where to place shots for the best approaches

Pros: Gleneagles disc golf course is an amazing track that happens to perfectly complement the GGP course. Mostly long pretty open drives with technical greens plus a couple tight lines / wooded shots.
It's set on a 9-hole golf course but unlike the other two disc golf on 9-hole ball golf courses in the area the disc golf holes only loosely follow the golf fairways. There's actually 18 unique disc golf fairways with multiple pin locations for every hole (not sure if all the sleeves are in the ground yet).
There's usually wind and often a lot of wind around the course. It can swirl and change directions quickly too as i have seen on one of my rounds. It adds a nice and sometimes frustrating extra challenge. I'm sure it will never get boring for years to come.
The astro turf tee boxes are generously large and will provide excellent grip dry or wet - a huge plus!
The 1100+ foot par 5 on hole 11 is a great opportunity to air one out or learn how to throw rollers.
There's a bar onsite and the staff is very friendly and welcoming towards the disc golfers. The same is true for all the other ball golfers i encountered on the track so far.
Cons: It's a bit pricey but for me still very much worth the cost.
As the course is pretty new it's still rough around the edges and sometimes the greens - but i'm sure that will get better with more play.
The area immediately left of the basket for 16 is extremely rough: It appears to have functioned as the "junk yard" for the golf course maintenance crew (lots of cut down logs and other tree/bush/gardening debris around here). If you land anywhere on the left side of the basket and be it only 15-20ft you might have to "climb" to your lie with extremely awkward footing. I would love to see an effort to clean that out a bit (30-50ft circle from the pins).
Other Thoughts: The immediate neighborhood to the south of the course is pretty ghetto and when coming from the peninsula via 101 your GPS will most likely navigate you straight through that. If that's of concern for you just take Mansell instead of Sunnydale.
