Pros: Has some really cool different tee signs that are very well done. Navigation is fairly easy. The pin locations are very easy to see on the tee signs. Multiple pin placements, and very nice tee pads.
Cons: I have a few problems with this course
-this is a very busy park with lots of people including homeless and park goers. You have to constantly ask people to move or to yell heads up or skip holes. Safety here is a major issue, it also has couple holes near road.
-the baskets were okay but not the greatest shape
-hole 7-9 play right next to each other and easy to get turned around, or confused which basket you're throwing to.
Other Thoughts: I always appreciate another course but safety is a major problem here. Even with every hole fairly short it's not the best layout and isn't that enjoyable

Another socal park course

Pros: With so many park disc golf courses in Socal, it's hard to tell them apart sometimes. That's what happened to Twila-Reid Park on a recent trip to the area. I played so many courses that I actually forgot about this one. Honestly most of the courses out here are very similar... it seems like if have a city park you should stick a disc golf course in it. It takes something above and beyond to really to really stand out from the rest. Twila-Reid Park somewhat struggles in this department, but a couple of looks at the media pics online, then the course map, and quickly my memory was jogged back into place.

When I arrived at Twila-Reid Park I was greeted by some locals practicing some drives from an area that wasn't on the course. "Oh look", I thought, "another unmarked layout out here on a course I don't know anything about. Can I even play?" Within a few seconds though I realized they were just practicing to a basket over the hill. I was safe to carry on to hole 1 without getting hit. :)

The course itself is medium length and fairly open. Most of the holes are around the 300 foot mark, and for the most part are clearly defined. Hole 1 was a great little thumber for me over the hill. I actually hit the basket on the drive. Holes 2 through 6 link their way through the east side of the park. There are a few trees to contend with, but nothing major. Holes 7-9 are on the opposite side of the park, and really have a different feel. The trees are thicker, and the lines are different. I enjoyed the change.

The park itself was well maintained and very busy with joggers, families, and other folks enjoying a beautiful afternoon. Restrooms were nearby, and I think I even saw a concession stand near the tennis courts.

Teepads were concrete, and baskets were in good shape. Most of the holes were relatively easy to find using the map from this site. Holes 7-9 were probably the most challenging... but I found my way.

All in all a decent course...

- Concrete pads
- Nice baskets
- Clean park
- Loads of parking
- Restrooms
- Concessions
- Easy course
Cons: My first con would be the overall layout. The gap between 6 and 7 is insane. If I didn't have a map, I would have never figured that out.

Like most other courses in the area, people can be an issue. Joggers are everywhere, and this park had the most homeless people of any other park I've been to. One guy was actually sleeping under the basket on hole 3. Another group of them were sleeping near hole 8. Mind your shots!

Finally, there's more than enough room here to plant another 9 holes to make a solid 18. Maybe the park won't let the club... I dunno. The real estate is definitely there though.
Other Thoughts: All in all, it's a decent course, but it's nothing spectacular.If you can dodge the homeless, then it would be a good place to bring someone new to the game. The course itself is pretty easy to play. I wouldn't go out of my way though to get a round in here with so many other exceptional courses in the area.

Park in the lot on the north side of the park, bring a map, and have fun!

Nice, Really Nice

Pros: Concrete Tees
Very Nice Tee Signs
Nice Bright Baskets
Multi-able Basket placements
Cons: It's set up around a play ground, which is very popular. So it gets crowded, which makes play slow for 9 holes.
Other Thoughts: When I saw the photos I wasn't too excited about the course, then I got there and was blown way. I spoke with a few locals and they informed me that Disney bought the park and fixed it up. By the play ground you can see the Disney logo. I played at night and found even at night there is enough light to play, but can make seeing people sometime difficult.

Pros: Wow, it's not often when the biggest problem with a course is seemingly endless horde of walkers using the park's sidewalks, even at 06:30 am. I can't even imagine attempting to play this course on a Saturday afternoon or any evening.

Twila-Reid is a fairly large, mostly flat city park which seems to be in a fairly decent neighborhood. The course has these nice, large signs which have a big hole #, distance, Par and a basic route for the hole. There is the standard "Rules of Disc Golf" sign at the beginning. the designers have simply used the park's sidewalks for tee pads. The park has scattered trees to provide most of the challenge. It plays as a basic recreational level course. That is, it's challenging enough for an old REC player such as myself or easy and open enough that you could bring a beginner and they wouldn't get too frustrated. Advanced/Pro players won't find any challenge here. The holes are mostly in the 275' range without much in the way of obstacles. there are a couple of shorter ACE runs such as #8 which is 150'. # 9 sign says it's a 100' but the basket is probably set out at 200'.
Cons: # 9 basket is pretty well beat up. # 6 is currently an older single chain model. @ 2 basket is plastered with various stickers making it look like a Nascar car.
There were many times, even at 6:30 am, when I found myself having to wait for the parade of morning walkers to clear before I was able to throw.
Navigation got a little sketchy after # 6.
Other Thoughts: This is actually a fun little 9 holes. There are a decent variety of throws needed, enough distance and trees to provide challenge for most of us, places to roll and the course loops around to the finish.
A previous reviewer had commented on the navigation issues toward the end of the course. I'll have to agree. I needed some homeless dude to point me in the right direction for holes 7-8-9. I rewarded him with a hit of black tar heroin.
Play early (maybe 4 am) to avoid the crowds and bring some street drugs to reward the homeless.

Pros: Well I was working right down the street from this course so I stopped by. There were baskets. I think that's all the pros I can come up with.
Cons: Holy crap there's a lot of homeless people here! They have camps set up all over the park but most of them know not to sleep in the fairways. I was very apprehensive about walking away from my truck. There aren't a lot of obstacles to throw around and no exciting shots. Most holes are pretty short and just stuck where they fit. Lots of non-dg traffic. No tee pads. Just throw from where the sign is planted. I definatly would not come here near dusk. Actually I won't be coming here again at all. All the bums laying around sour the mood. Why doesn't the city kick them out?
Other Thoughts: Don't come to this course. La mirada is right down the street. Go there.

Pros: Not just another little 9er. This one is lit up all night!!

- 9 Baskets with a fun safari layout that makes it interesting.

- A good place to take friends to introduce them to the game. You don't need to throw far to score well here.

- A surprisingly good club presence for a 9 hole course. With regular weekly events, occasional ace race and a good number of solid players that call this course home.
Cons: - The regular layout is short. Another deuce or die course.

- There are a lot of non disc golfers, even at night.

- The baskets have seen better days.
Other Thoughts: The lights set this one apart from the average 9 hole course. The short layout is nothing special and the ambiance is lacking. But on the whole it serves it's purpose well and is the place to go when the sun goes down.

Pros: Great to work on upshots and running the baskets on approaches
Lit up all night you can play till dawn if you please
Well manicured grass and is upkept really well
Cons: Public Park
Terrible Baskets
Hole 2 fairway is littered with soccer players
'interesting' folks who hang around at night
Other Thoughts: Its a great place to practice your mids/putters so take it for what it is.

The gorrila layout is actually pretty fun but is really confusing, if you play the random doubles on tues/thrus the people will show you the layout.

 Do not play during busy hours

Pros: Because almost all of the tees are on the concrete footpaths, they are nice for driving.
Cons: Hole #7 can be hard to find. From the basket for #6, the tee for #7 is on the exact opposite side of the playground. Basically, walk due west. It's near the corner of Parkview & W Stonybrook.

Also, the flow of #8 and #9 is off, so I'd play #9 before #8 (see below).

I played on a Thursday at 10am and it wasn't that busy. However, it's really easy to see how it could be unplayable during the majority of daylight hours. Many fairways went over sidewalks and jogging paths that were slightly busy at 10am when I played.

The baskets are not uniform. Some have the double layer of chains. Others have a single layer. And the basket on #9 is dented.
Other Thoughts: Playing from the tee signs is not that exciting, so I played using the following tees:

#1 - From the original tee sign, walk back until you hit the park entrance and drive from there.

#2 - In the NE corner of the park, two footpaths intersect on Halliday St. This adds some needed distance.

#3 - play as is

#4 - Playing back about 20-40 feet not only adds more distance, but brings a couple of trees somewhat into play.

#5 - play as is (after you're done waiting for all the joggers/walkers to clear out)

#6 - play as is

#7 - I moved back as close as I could get to Stonybrook Dr, where the sidewalk and footpath intersected. This adds distance and brings some young trees into play (which I hit in both rounds).

#9 - I'd play this hole before playing #8. Play as is.

#8 - After finishing #9, walk north to the sidewalk on Orange Ave and walk west until you are due north of both the tee and the basket for #8. I teed off from the sidewalk on Orange, adding 100+ feet.

Pros: -The only disc golf course around for miles
-The lights make night-time play possible, but if you go that route, bring glow discs if you've got them, as there are still plenty of dark spots
-Nice course for a quick, casual round, or to teach newbies how the game works
Cons: -Not very challenging. You'll have to hyzer around some trees here and there, but beyond that, it's a pretty straight-forward layout.
-I can see the walkways through the park being problematic for discers on crowded days. There aren't many holes where they don't come in to play, and no one wants to hit a mother walking a stroller with a Roc or Buzzz!
-There aren't any dedicated tee pads; you'll have to use the aforementioned walkways next to each tee sign.
-I can see how the course could be difficult to navigate for first-timers to the course. Make sure you look for the little black "next tee" directional symbol on the tee signs to know where to go next.
Other Thoughts: I played this course at night when the Disneyland fireworks were going off. Kinda cool to think "they can have Mickey; I'm gonna throw for birdies". Even at night there were a lot of non-disc golfers in the park, which makes me think that weekend play would be problematic when families are having picnics or at the playground or whatever. It's worth a visit if you live nearby or are in town for Disney, but there are better options out there... albeit far away.
