Once a good course, now an OK course
Pros: The course is well put together and in good condition. There are concrete t-pads, signs that mark where the hole begins and toppers on the baskets. There are maps as well at every hole, but these are not really necessary, you can see the hole from almost every tee, excluding the two or three that dogleg.
As others have already said, the park is often populated by beautiful college girls out for a jog, which only adds to the experience.
Cons: There's not really any variety to the holes. Most of the trees have been cut down so you just throw it straight for the majority of them.
There's also a lot of distance between some of the holes, quite a bit of walking with no shade. You'll definitely want to bring a water, and put on some sun block.
Other Thoughts: Not a bad course to learn on, easy to get around, but over all nothing special. If you're looking for something different, try Hoyt Grove (referred to as Couch Park by the locals), its a much more interesting course and its in the prettier of the two parks.
Pros: Not a bad lil course. There first couple holes were really fun and got peaked my interest. There are concrete tee pads everywhere and tee signs that help with navigation for the most part. There are a lot of open holes that allow you to try different shots and practice a little. The elevation is pretty good here not only on fairways but on some greens which change this open course up a little. The fun factor is not bad here cause you can do just about any shot youd like. Hole 10 is fun to throw multiple shots and BOOM!
Cons: Very open and not a ton of anything special here. Some baskets are in poor shape. Some of the pads are way short and goofy sized.
Other Thoughts: Had fun and good lil course to play in Stillwater. I liked Hoyt a little better but heard it is usually in worse shape than we found it.
Pros: Allows you to have some fun throwing your discs as far as you can. Seems to be a good course to start on if you are just getting into disc golf since you will be able to practice your throw while not worrying about crashing into a tree.
Cons: Very few technical throws.
Can get boring to play after playing a couple of times.
Baskets are getting worn out.

Wind comes sweepin'
Pros: It is well maintained and allows for any errors (except for the previously mentioned water hole and national guard area.)
Cons: It is WINDY. All the time. All. The. Time.
Very few trashcans and one restroom which is way back in the long course. There is a lot of walking to this course.
Other Thoughts: They have been cutting down a lot of trees and it was already an open course. Therefore, it is losing what little technical areas it had but it is still a fun course to play.

Fun But Simple
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Good variety of shots (short, long, tight, wide-open). Plenty of opportunity to air it out on some holes and some legit Par 4's for beginners. Water in play on only one hole (which is weird being next to a lake). Good use of elevation changes on most holes. The technical holes are great, just wish there were more of them. It's essentially the first four holes, the pond throw (#7), and #13 and #14 to an extent. Everything else is wide open lines and mostly in the 300-350' range with a few exceptions.
I recommend visiting in the spring when the co-eds add to the scenery.
Well maintained throughout the year.
Cons: Course markers could use some maintenance/updating and the addition of an alternate tee/hole location or two wouldn't hurt. The baskets are well-worn to say the least. Several are approaching "janky" in status and aren't long for this world.
Tee pads are somewhat small at times and showing age with the amount of erosion around them. Careful at the end of your run-up.
The military parking lot is omnipresent on one hole and I don't recommend "hoping" you don't throw over the fence if that is an issue for you. Just lay up and keep it safe.
I find it a little odd that the "island" hole (#14) on a course next to a lake doesn't involve water.
Other Thoughts: Fun course, plenty windy like most courses in OK. Challenging for beginners, but not overly so. Great opportunity to work on power on about half the course.

Pros: Very nice scenery.
you're located in a city park, however the disc golf course is only used for disc golf (no randos walking across course)
Good course if you can throw pretty far
not too busy.
Cons: 10 is a monster, and right next to a fairly busy street
rather than a great layout, they use distance as the challanging factor
Other Thoughts: one hole shoots across a small pond (inlet from the lake), however there is an alternate tee box across the bridge

Air it out
Pros: For the most part a very open course with few trees or areas where you can lose your disc. Good for long drives.
Cons: Few trees means less shade to hide from the sweltering OK summers. No benches and rare trashcans. Hole 7 has such a small margin for error that the alternate tee is almost always used.
Other Thoughts: Overall a very relaxing course to play. Not much challenge if you can throw it straight and far.

Boomer Lake Stillwater, OK
Pros: Nice course in a large park. Mostly medium to long holes with a lot of different shots. Hole #7 lake shot, but has alt. tee across bridge. Hole #10 729ft hard to make par on this one. Some signs and concrete tees. A lot of places to start and finish at as hole 1 gets backed up at time.
Cons: A few switchbacks from hole to next tee, hard to find the next one- Holes 1 and 2, Holes 8 and 9. Missing signs, Short tees,
Other Thoughts: A good course and if you have trouble ask someone they will help you find your way around.

Pros: Decent mix of holes, a shot over the neck of the lake, a couple of blind baskets, good use of the obstacles that are available, a 700' downhill hole that begs to be rolled if you're brave enough. Beautiful park, and lost of opportunities to rip some big drives.
Cons: Many of the tee signs are damaged or missing making navigation difficult at times if you don't already know the course. To get to the 2nd hole you have to backtrack along the first, the tee is right by the parking lot. You also need to backtrack from hole 8 to 9.
Other Thoughts: This is a very enjoyable course that isn't too tough when starting out but also shouldn't become too easy once your skill level increases. Bring discs you like to throw into the wind, because the wind coming off of the lake can get pretty bad. If you are in Stillwater and have time for one course, this is it.
