I live near this Disc Golf course, and find it intriguing. Never have I seen a "Disc Golf" course
before. My wife & I are both familiar with recreational frisbee. Like alot people we've invented
contests to go along with frisbee tossing, but never realized there was an organized frisbee
sport like this.
Sad to say the Ladera course has become something of a weed patch in recent years and
as of late Summer 2015 suffers no small amount of neglect. My Wife and I enjoy coming to
the park, I hope it will be here for many years to come ...Disc Golf course and all!
PROS: I think Ladera is decent for what it is- the park location itself is just OK, but there are definitely some good shots with elevation changes, interesting mandos, and good use of the few trees and obstacles/features that are available.
A lot of the signs were missing when I played, so it takes a minute to figure out a couple of the holes but it's not too complicated. Considering the terrain I think this course has a good design layout- fun shots, good play flow, and a mix of short-mid-long shots.
CONS: Several of the baskets are pretty crunched/bent up. This course would benefit from a course clean-up day, seems like a good amount of litter flows and blows into the area, kind of detracts from the course experience.
I give this course 2-2.5 LINKS.
[ My link ratings: ]
1 LINK: BAD. Course is bad, don't bother.
2 LINKS: OK. Course is alright, fun enough to play but not a first choice.
3 LINKS: GOOD. Good course, always fun to play.
4 LINKS: GREAT. These are the courses you want to live near- great quality park, layout, tees, baskets, etc.
5 LINKS: EPIC. This rating is reserved for only the best courses in the world. A MUST PLAY course.
