Another of Lake Tahoe’s gems, the Bijou disc golf course is a lengthy 27 holer on the California side of South Lake Tahoe a little bit after the Y. Gorgeous scenery but all in all a very flat and dusty course with a ton of evergreens to aggravate the champion in all of us.
Disc among the redwoods toward the top of the hill on Hwy 17 in Santa Cruz. The Black Mouse disc golf course is a nice and shady 18-holer.
Excellent in Winter or early Spring the Moraga Disc Golf course is short but sweet. 9 holes in the rolling hills of the East San Francisco Bay Area.
