Went and played Trophy Club's first 9 holes today, I must say that from the old configuration to this is a completely new course far better and totally worth the $1 park entrance fee. I like this course very much, it has a little bit of everything to throw. The course was confusing to us at first because the nymber on the baskets do not match the holes you are throwing on. The thorns are pretty harsh right now on the fairway of hole 5 and 6, but they should not be a problem once more people play the course. This map is just an estimate of pin locations not exact by any means. just to give an idea of where you are going.

Hole 1: Shoots long and straight with two big trees on both sides (about 150' away) then opens fairly nice. Then basket is heavily wooded and tucked behind some trees.

Hole 2: Another long open tee shot leading to a nicely protected basket.

Hole 3: WOAH. heavily wooded, tree cover, trees in the darn way, nicely laid. Sweet putter approach.

Hole 4: see hole 3, but a few more trees to start with!

Hole 5: Hyzer bomb, long and off to the left.

Hole 6: Nice long tunnel shot through an anhyzer to a protect basket.

Hole 7: straight and long, and wooded, and tree covered, and yea did I mention wooded?

Hole 8: SUPER tricky hole, tee pad is tucked in some trees that has a right turn in about 100' then HEAVILY wooded fairway to a pretty open but tricky basket.

Hole 9: Tee box is tucked in some trees, looong shot with a HUGE tree dead center. Then an even longer drive to the basket.

Overall I really enjoyed the course, it is a HUGE improvement over the old, putter only course. Thanks again to everyone involved with the new design.

Heads up DFW, I found out today that the PIAS in Carrolton is closing at the end of the month. Chad told me the owners decided to close because the strip mall landlord jacked up the rent.
Sucks…it was the first place I ever bought plastic from and at the time it was about the only place carrying discs. Only good news is they are selling everything for 25% off, so some good deals to be had.

Hey folks... i played this course with ikikazz and agree with his assessment. The new designed front 9 played well and is challenging for all players.

Its well worth the $1. Cant wait to see what they do with the back 9

Too bad. I hope they find another place to open in the area.

DFW disc golf (can't reply to previous thread due to 40 day limit)

Any DG pro-shops in the Richardson/North Dallas, Garland or Mesquite areas? I've seen the page for Life Disc sports in Rowlett but it doesn't include much about their plastic and the pics seem kinda skimpy on selection. DD in Lewisville is an hour each way and I really just don't have that kind of time to spare when I could be using that to throw.
Any help would be appreciated, and I'm hoping to get down to Cedar Hill soon so anything that direction would work as well.

In addition to those listed in the link that scarpfish provided, Hobbytown in Rockwall (south of I-30) has a decent disc selection. Better than Dick's and the like, but nothing extensive.

The best places I've been to as far as selection is PIAS in Carrollton (rumored to be closing) and Dynamic Discs in Lewisville.
