Not the Beast

Pros: Large cement tee pads
Plenty of parking near hole one
Nice use of the land
Long and short tee for hole 6
Cons: No tee signs (yet)
Other Thoughts: Not a big park, but it does have a creek running though it giving it some elevation change.
You park on the east side of the rec center, hole one tees off near the basket ball court throwing towards a wash with the road off to the right. Pretty open hole, but fun to throw.
Hole 2 has make a choice, ace run between the tree's with straight shot, or short skip hyzer either left or right. The basket is located right above a drop off for the wash. If your short, you have a tough putt from below the basket. (yea, I was in that ditch)
Hole 3 is a longer hole with some trees making the right handed hyzer shot tough. For a right handed person, throwing the more open turnover shot runs the risk of falling off left into the creek.
Hole 4 is a nice little birdie opportunity, however don't be left of this basket, you have the drop off to the creek and a few trees to the left side of this basket.
Hole 5, longest hole on the course, throws down between the creek and road. There are a couple of tree's about 3/4 of the way down the fairway you need to avoid.
Hole 6 Has 2 tee's, the longer tee has you throwing across the creek and up above a small concrete ledge to the basket. Hit is not a long throw, but fun. The short tee is a pitch and put shot for those that might not be able to clear the creek from the other shot. (figures I would throw both of these and was closer from the longer tee than I was from the short tee)
Hole 7 is a little longer than it looks, throw down past a few large tree's near an old picnic table.
Hole 8 throws back up and has a nice natural turnover fairway.
Hole 9 is a fun hole, you walk back and down into the creek bank and throw up the wash to the basket. You have 2 lines here, one turnover and one slight hyzer.
This is a well designed neighborhood course. Not too long, and not too short. Nice mix of holes with some interesting shots.
On a Sunday around 1pm, there were actually several people out on the course.
You have 2 GREAT courses in town, this is a great shorter course to take people to so they don't get intimidated by the harder courses just down the street.
Would I play here again?
Well, yes and no. I did like the course, but to be honest, unless I am pressed for time and can't play 18, I am heading over to Cameron Park.

Pros: -- Excellent use the available land.
-- Lots of elevation change, including a ravine/ditch you throw over (or around if you bail out) on No. 2.
-- Water in play on several holes, including throwing over water and baskets placed that approaches are in danger of getting wet.
-- Next door to a rec center, but I didn't see any non-disc golfers on the course.
-- Nice tee pads.
-- Nice variety of holes (mostly on the shorter side for distance, RHBH, LHBH) with different routes available on several holes.
-- Tree, while not overly abundant, are well used.
Cons: -- Only 9 holes.
-- No tee signs. Given that this is a new course, I hope this will be addressed soon.
-- No truly long holes.
-- No truly technical shots.
Other Thoughts: -- For a 9-hole course, this is great! There is a rec center building on site, but I did not go inside to see about restrooms or find out hours. Hole 1 tees off near the basketball courts and the course flows counter clock wise around the park and ends near where you started.
