Course Reviews

I have played this course a dozen times over the past 3 months. The course is in good condition. There is new orange center tape on all 9 course baskets and the 1 practice basket. There are signs at each Tee marking the hole. Each basket is labeled with its respective hole number. The tee pads will be narrow for some. They could be a bit longer too. But overall the concrete pads are in good shape. Over the past few years some trees have fallen. A few locals have made to obstacles around the baskets with the fallen tree branches. There are now 2 basket placements for almost every hole. Due to the depressed basins throughout the park, there is some slight up and down shots. A number of baskets are on the edge of a slope.

The course is a good practice or beginner course. The average hole distance is 300’. There are a few 400’ holes when the baskets are in those respective placements.

Lately the horses in the park have been sparse. I have only been delayed once by a few minutes as they rode through hole #6 to get to their stables.

Yes there are a few vagrants passing through from time to time. Due to frequent disc golfers, vagrants don’t hang around long.

Other than a small playground, the rest of the park is a disc golf course. And it is a popular park with the local disc golfers. Unless you come really early you most likely will not have it to yourself – even on the weekdays. There can be big groups of disc golfers on weekends too. I have seen groups up to 20! However, if you don’t live in Sacramento County, I would not make a separate trip to play it. There are bigger and better courses in the region.

Overall it is a small enjoyable course to keep up on your beginner or intermediate skills.

This is a great 9-hole course. The tree elements are interesting. There are vagrants that use the park too, but I've never had a problem with them. It's the horse owners that bring out horses to train while golfers are throwing that are the problem. Otherwise great course.

This course is a joke. Homeless camps on a couple of holes, nothing but weeds and dirt. OK practice course I guess.

This course is only nine holes and that is part of it's 2/5 raiting in my eyes. It is however a very challenging course in windy conditions. I feel that this courses length is the most challenging aspect. All but two holes are over 300 ft long and have their own little surprises. Hole 3 and 9 were recently made longer and made this course a little harder. It has good elevation changes on some holes. The only two cons for this course are that it is only 9 holes and it is pretty much wide open.
