It was in Moore, listed on here as the Little River DGC. You can decide for yourself on the course, I was just struck by what I perceived as a very unsafe design.

For reference, I also played Dolese, Griffin, and Wild Horse. I'd rate those about a 3.5, 4, and 3 respectively. As played, I'd probably give Little River a 1 or 1.5.

Noble now has legit pads at every hole, and is getting worn in quite nicely. The rough is still a nightmare, but that rough plays a major role in what makes that course so good.

I dig Mitch Park, but it's pretty far North for me to make there that often. It's probably a 3 to 4 times a year place for me.

Man, you were 2 blocks away from Lions whenever you played Griffin. You should have definitely hit that course up since you were so close. Very cool course. That just leaves it for next time!

Sparky here.... The above posts have been somewhat correct... I have been dealing with what my dr's have referred to pancreatic cancer in early stages.... I have confirmed pancreatitis with several tumors in my abdomen... I had a heat stroke and mild heart attack while pouring the pads on 11 of these holes... My shop being closed is directly related to my health and the fact that I have been working on finishing the course.... I am sorry to those that have been wanting in the shop and I hope you understand.... As to the comment from GT Chris... I can only assume that you were one of the 2 golfers from Georgia Tech that stopped to play after the Texas tournament... I understand you walking off the course as there were no maps yet and only 11 holes were in.... The front 9 is a little more open, but this is designed to be a tight course.... This is not an old ball golf course that was taken over and it is not a wide open park either.... This is an extremely tight and technical course that doesn't always benefit the play that wants to step up with a boss, destroyer or nuke and grip it and rip it.... This is also a brand new course and will be continued to be groomed... I'm sorry you thought the course was unsafe... I also have not heard a single negative comment about the course except this one... And I have enough haters here that would gladly tell me if they thought it wasn't up to par, but the funny thing is they keep coming back to play it... I can only hope you come back and play it when it's 100% finished... But as far as a lawsuit waiting to happen? It's posted to play at your own risk and that you are entering a disc golf course so watch out for flying discs... Can't think of any disc golfers being sued over hitting someone with a disc... Not saying it hasn't happened, but I have never heard of it.... Don't think Will sued the cat that split his head open earlier this year...

To all my supporters... Thank you for your patience and I hope to be well enough to get back into the shop soon... We will continue to work on Little River improving those tight lines that everyone loves... So excited to be bringing hole #7 to you guys ASAP.... Oklahoma city's own island shot.... Way overdue folks.... Thanks again and keep flinging those discs...

I've heard nothing but good stuff about the Moore course from players up here in OKC. I haven't made it down there yet myself ....just too damn hot!

Hang in there Sparky. I've been meaning to get over to your shop ever since someone threw me one of your minis at Dolese last winter. You got a PH# so I know your open before I drive down?

Nice. I've been wanting to check your place out. I'll definitely hollar before heading that direction in order to make sure you're around the shop.

Thank you for clearing up the confusion, and my best regards to your improving health. And please don't hesitate to get in touch with me on here if you guys need help around the course. My schedule is rather tight, but I'd be more than happy to set aside a few good chunks of time to help out.

Take care of yourself, Sparky.

N.E. Lions was my 200th played course. Oldest in OK I can believe. Built in 1972 is simply wrong, considering the oldest course in the world didn't come along until 1975.

According to what's on this site, NE Lions was established in 1977 and Will Rogers in 1979. I'd been thinking that Will was the oldest. At any rate it's neat to have such a long history of disc golf here. I never heard about it until about 1994 and didn't play until 2001. It's neat to see some of the old Tulsa and Okc tourney discs from the 80s pop up from time to time.

I'd be down to throw a round anytime you need a warm body. I'm an after-work round guy that lives and works on the south side of OKC/Moore. Haven't played the new course in Moore and likely won't ever play the course in Noble (severe poison ivy allergy) but I'm willing to get humiliated at Griffin or enjoy Lyons. Hell, you can probably catch me practicing upshots and putts at Hillsdale a couple of times a week most of the year!
