Course is in great shape! Most “B” pins moved to “C”. Nice to change things up.
About the Course
Oyster Bay has two tees and two baskets on every hole. The shortest standard layout ("Squirrel") is yellow tees to yellow baskets -- ideal for recreational and intermediate players. The longest standard layout ("Coyote") is blue tees to blue baskets -- ideal for advanced and expert players. The two criss-cross layouts are called "Rabbit" -- yellow tees to blue baskets -- and "Hawk" -- blue tees to yellow baskets. The criss-cross layouts are ideal for intermediate and advanced players. Par is based on the tees. The yellow tees, ideal for lower-level players, have more generous pars. The blue tees, ideal for higher-level players, have more challenging pars. The course is located in a huge public park, a former landfill that's mostly undeveloped. Course features include two terraced greens, two large rock circles (fake lakes/island), a long fake creek, and 26 elevated tees or greens. The park district planted hundreds of small trees in 2019 and 2021, which will eventually change the course character considerably. To reach the course, park on Neptune Drive, walk into the park, then head south along the paved trail. It's about 1/2-mile to the Rising Wave sculpture on the southeast side of the park, overlooking tees #1 and #10, and the practice putting area. Oyster Bay is the first disc golf course in the East Bay Regional Park District, opening 44 years after the first course was proposed to the district. If we treat this opportunity well, we hope the next course will arrive much sooner! ... Disc Golf Rules & Etiquette 1. The goal of disc golf is to complete the course in as few throws as possible. 2. On each hole, make your first throw from the tee. Each subsequent throw is made from directly behind your disc. The player farthest from the basket throws first. 3. Within 10 meters of the basket, do not step past your disc as you throw. 4. Out-of-bounds areas include pedestrian paths and rock features. If your disc lands out of bounds, play from where your disc was last in-bounds with a one throw penalty. (On hole 7, throw from the drop zone.) 5. Your disc must pass to the left of the “mandatory” tree on holes 4 & 5. If it passes to the right, play from 2 meters to the left of the tree with a one throw penalty.. 6. The hole is completed when the disc comes to rest in the basket’s tray or chains. 7. Only throw when other players and park users are completely out of range. 8. Stand quietly and out of the way when other players are throwing. 9. Limit your group to four players ideally, never more than six. Allow faster groups to play through. 10. Take care of the course. Be kind to the foliage and equipment. Use the trash cans. No smoking.

"Fantastic course with so many options. Grass is high on 3-8 but if you pay attention you won’t have trouble finding your disc. Back 9 is recently mowed. Even when the grass is at its tallest I’ve never lost a disc here, and I spend a lot of time off the fairway! More than I can say about other popular Bay Area courses. "

"Fantastic layout. Well signed and baskets have pointers to next tee. Intend on there being wind. Also bit of a hike out from the street parking. However well worth the play. "
