Anderson Valley Brewing Company
The Anderson Valley Brewing Company Disc Golf Course is situated around the brewery property in Booneville and offers beautiful and scenic views and a fun course. Dominated by huge oak trees and surrounded by vineyards and coastal mountains, the course provides a fun challenge and features a mix of open and forested fairways, elevation changes and variable winds. It's an ideal place to enjoy a round or three.
AVBC charges a $5 fee per player per day. In return, you receive a coupon for $5 off of a $10 purchase of merchandise, including, discs, apparel and beer.
If you're coming from Ukiah / Highway 101, take the Booneville Road / Highway 253 exit and head west to Anderson Valley. Just before Highway 128 the Anderson Valley Brewing Company entrance is on the right. Park at the Hospitality Center and enjoy a cool, tasty AV Brew while you're there! I suggest a seasonal if available; Summer Solstice is my personal favorite.

There doesn't seem to be any specific information relating to length of the holes or strokes for par anywhere, including the scorecard provided by AVBC. Below the map is a photo from each tee pad on the course. Par and distance of each hole will be added soon, even if unofficial, approximate and/or a total guess.
Here's the map that AVBC provides:
Description: A consistent sweeping right hand arc all the way to the pin. The tee sits behind several trees and the proximity of the Hospitality Center on the left is a bit intimidating. After clearing the initial trees on the right the fairway continues right, over a service road and another set of trees on the right. The pin is near the corner of the property at Highway 128.
Description: Hole 2 is relatively short. The tee faces back towards the parking lot of the Hospitality Center. There is a stand of trees in the middle of the area and the pin is under the oak at the corner of the lawn area near the fountain.
Description: It's a bit of a hike to the tee of 3, across the parking lot and past the solar panels. The fairway is straight with a late hook to the right.
Description: A dog-leg, left, hole 4 goes from one set of trees, across the open and past the fence to the pin, sitting under the next stand of trees.
Description: One of the more challenging holes on the course, the tee faces down the service road leading to a dog-leg left and across the meadow to the pin, once again placed underneath a set of trees. Big arms can go over the trees to the pin.
Description: The tee sits above an elevation change overlooking a meadow. The pin sits under the trees on the far side.
Description: The fairway is at a slight incline to the pin with the right of the fairway designated O.B.
Description: A blind shot, the longest fairway on the course is straight and nearly free of hazards. But there is a 20' elevation change across the fairway taking the pin out of sight on the tee shot.
Description: 9 is flat and open all the way to the final approach where a large oak stands to guard the basket.
Description: The pin on 10 is just tucked under the tree canopy. The fairway is open on the left, but the option is available to go under the canopy ahead.
Description: Through trees from tee to pin, hole 11 requires a precise throw and a lot of luck. The basket is guarded by trees like no other.
Description: Back through trees, the fairway is not as bleak as hole 11. The pin sits under the canopy, but the trees are more sparse.
Description: The fairway is low and straight all the way from the tee, through the trees, across the open and to the pin, again sitting under a big oak.
Description: The fairway transitions from open to canopy at the pin. There is a thin avenue to the left that will allow easier shots to the basket.
Description: At the basket of 14, take a left, go through the fence and across the open to the tee of 15. The fairway runs back across the open and into the trees.
Description: Hole 16 runs under the canopy and out to the pin under the oak sitting across the open space.
Description: 17 goes back towards the corner of the brewery, near some green storage tanks. It's another straight shot requiring a low throw that weaves through the trees.
Description: The 18th tee sits partially covered by canopy, requiring a low straight throw. The pin is under a tree.
