Holes: 18
Where’s it at? Penn Valley off Hwy 20 west of Grass Valley

Penn Valley is a very interesting disc golf course, also called Hanging Oaks Disc Golf Course. There are 18 holes with more pin locations than I’ve ever seen before at any course. Some holes have as many as 6 or 7 pin locations!

It’s located in a fairly rural community park and has a mix of trees and open areas with very little elevation change. I would venture to say the best time to visit would be late Winter or early Spring, when there is still remaining water from the rainfall and the grasses are green. My pictures below do the course no justice I’m sure, it gets a little hot and dry here in the summer and holes that seem to normally have water hazards were bone dry.

The course has a good challenge to it and involves a fair amount of hiking. If you can, combine Penn Valley with a visit to Grass Valley’s Condon Park Disc Golf Course.
