Great 9

5+    5/25/2016   5/25/2016
Review By: AdubSLO
Played: 7  Reviewed: 4
Pros: Great 9 hole course.
Variety of hole play.
DG Club moves baskets often.
Solid conc. pads.
Clean - Lots of trash cans around course.
Not many people on walking paths in the way.
Pets OK
Cons: Grass can get long when not kept.
Away from after game grub but has nearby liquor store.
Other Thoughts: Secret hole can be inserted between 5 and 6 if you own travel basket (pad @ top of hill north side of park - rock pad follow trail)

Pros: Warm weather, good use of space, fun course. ample parking, free,
Cons: Lack of trees, can be hot any day of the year. Spring the tall grass will eat your disc.
Other Thoughts: If you are driving thru town and looking to play a course here for a stop, pick Laguna over this. Still, like I said, a good course

 Afternoon delight!

Pros: Super quick 9 hole! Easily navigated and excellent use of limited space. Fun, semi techy short holes great for working on mid and short game. Good use of elevation, trees and water/ streambeds. A really good mid-city short course.
Cons: Tees are on the small side and signage is weak. Really, minor issues for such a good little course.
Other Thoughts: Hit this up when you have 30 minutes available or repeat/threepeat it for a better fix or even safari it (plenty of surrounding open space to expand the possibilities). Well worth the time and I can say from personal experience a great place to take the young'uns or newbies!

 Fun Beginner/Intermediate 9

Pros: Small cement tees with wide grooves in the front. Small creeks running throughout the course (seasonal). Nice grass throughout most of the course that was not too long when I played. 2 pin locations per hole. Some technical shots required but nothing too challenging. Garbage cans next to hole 2's tee and at the entrance to the park near the baseball fields. Benches on most holes. Nice, clean park with restrooms on site. Slight elevation change throughout course. Baskets have hole number on them. Hole 6: nice longer blind shot throwing from behind a grove of short bushy trees. Nice views of the mountains.
Cons: Tees are only 6' long and 3' wide making full run-ups difficult. No signs. Some baskets were close to other tees and the last 3 holes play side-by-side-by-side with one another. Mostly open throughout the course. All baskets were a little bit too high off the ground and some were worse than others. Layout can be tricky without signs so the using the course map is highly recommended your first time playing. All holes medium distance; none are very long.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun and interesting shorter 9 hole course with decent hole variety. Great course to challenge beginners and give them a taste of what the more difficult courses are like. To me it felt like a mini, tamed-down version of a challenging professional caliber course as it has a couple creeks in play (although they are very small and were dry when I played), some small hills and elevation change, a variety of left, right, and straight shots (although none are very long), some technical shots throwing around trees, a blind ~300' shot, and some well placed baskets. Quick and easy course to play (< 30 minutes to play 9). Print the map before your first round and navigation will be a breeze.

Pros: Easy to find pads and baskets.
Fun for pros and beginners.
Easy biking distance from town.
Quick stop markets close by for beverages.
Likable people always on the coarse.

Cons: No enough trash cans.
Windy conditions after noon.
Large groups on really nice days slow the flow.

Pros: Great basket locations, challenging but not impossible even for new players like me. The layout flows nicely and it's not too hard to find your way around. I like the elevation changes. Some of the course is in the open and some is protected from the wind. Nice variety.
Cons: The only thing I can think of is the random people cycling or walking on the path on hole #4 (I think it was #4) and the construction that was going on. The construction is temporary so no big deal there. My bro actually landed a disc on one of the trucks.
Other Thoughts: I'm a new player and this was the first real course I've played. It hooked me for sure and I'll definitely be out there sharpening my throwing skills! The course is close to my office so I can sneak out for a quick 9 or 12 holes at lunch. Friendly locals make it a great time too.

Pros: Sinsheimer is a fun little course that offers a lot more than the average niner.
- Excellent use of obstacles: Moderate elevation changes and wind make you think about a seemingly routine shot.
- Begginer friendly : This is the kind of course where you can bring your friends to learn for the first time and still keep it interesting for more experienced players.
- Variety of holes: You will need more than a RHBH hyzer on this course.
- Navigation: is fairly easy even for a first timer. Although tee signs are missing, there is a logical flow to the course and all the baskets are numbered.
- Mostly DG exclusive
Cons: - No signage: although the course flows pretty easily it would be nice to know the distances.
- Relatively short: I don't know what the distances are but I'm pretty sure that none are over 300'
Other Thoughts: In my opinion this is exactly what a neighborhood niner should be. It is a great place to get a quick nine and introduce friends to the sport. It is not a destination course and is not much of a challenge to experienced players, but it still has enough variety to make it interesting.

Hats off to the designers of this course. They made good use of the terrain and found some tricky pin placements.

Pros: A great course for learning the game and yet still challenging enough to keep you coming back. Decent variation in terain.
Cons: Can get windy in afternoon and if the grass has not been trimmed Ina while it can be hard to find discs.
Other Thoughts: Great 9 holer. I like to play a warm up round and then another 18. The pin locations seam to get changed monthly or so on and that keeps it interesting.
