Where’s it at? Novato, CA off Hwy 101 in the North Bay


Long holes, good hiking, scenic, challenging and sometimes a little muddy.

Expect to hike a lot and don’t plan on returning to your car for the cooler. This course has a lot of hills and can be really windy. There is really good scenery throughout the course and usually a good mix of wildlife. I’ve seen wild geese, turkeys, coyotes and deer on multiple occasions with a lot of squirrels as well.

This course is home to the longest disc golf hole that I’ve personally ever played. Hole 8 is 1,044 feet and today it took me 8 strokes to get it in the basket. There are also a couple good long downhill shots on the course.
