Pros: Course allows player to be creative in creating their own holes--no tee boxes, etc. Nice water hazard which can make an interesting hole (I'm being nice)
Cons: Where to start...only 5 holes that are close together with no direction on sequence to play. Chains are rusty and holes are unimaginitive.
Other Thoughts: Add a couple of baskets continuing around the pond and into the rest of the park and the course would be much better! Unfortunately I'm not sure of how much demand there is for disc golf in Enid...we played while passing through.

Just not worth it!!!
Pros: There are 5 baskets left. Still some open space where you could work on your drives, undistrubed if you can stand the stickers. The only reason I give this place a half a disc is if you were desperate enough you could play some safari golf here. Other than that I would just find an open field somewhere, or make up an object course in your yard. You would likely have more fun.
Cons: Where do you start??? No really there are no tee markers so you have no idea where you are supposed to be playing. As stated in previous reviews, there are only 5 baskets. The baskets have no numbers on them and are bent and in need of repair. STICKERS everywhere. I spent more time scraping the soles of my shoes when I was done playing then I did actually playing this course. I have no idea why the city of Enid would put in a dog park in the middle of a disc golf course but they did. I have been thru this park at least 4 times in the last 2 years, finally decided to play this place to cross it off the list, and I have never seen 1 person or their dog utilizing this dog park. I just don't see the reasoning behind this. I really hate to blast a course but this place is just a sad waste of time.
Other Thoughts: It appears that at one time this could have been a decent little course. I don't know what the layout used to be, but there was a little to work with. There is a big pond in the middle of this park, and one of the remaining baskets was located on the east end of the pond's dam. Also there was a row of trees in the middle of the park that looked like that could be a cool tunnel shot, sadly there was not a basket located in this vicinity. It would be interesting to know what the layout of this place used to be, distances etc. I wouldn't have wasted the time reviewing this course but since on it had been 2 years since the last review was posted I thought I would chime in. I wouldn't want an unexpecting disc golfer to travel out of their way to play this place. It is by no means a destination course, and even if I were in the area again, which is likely, I will not waste the time to turn down that street. Sorry but it is a waste of time!!!

We don't need no stinkin' tees!
Pros: The course has 18 holes, and the park surrounds a pretty lake. There are some very nice older trees that the course plays around. The baskets are in great shape.
UPDATE: The park no longer has 18 baskets, it's down to 5, and they've all been pretty abused by the lawnmowers. Most are leaning or broken, and all are rusty. The park still has a lake though.
Cons: This course is impossible to navigate without a guide or a map. The tees are not visible unless you are standing on top of them, and sometimes you can't even see them then. As the previous reviewer said, old boards set into the ground are very difficult to see, especially when the entire course is covered in some kind of spiky plant.
The holes we could find were not very imaginative, and didn't offer very much in the way of challenge. Nearly all the holes were straight and pretty short, and would be very beginner friendly if a beginner could ever find them.
Other Thoughts: This course has some promise, if someone would take the time to make it playable. Something as simple as a local player making a map and posting it in the parking lot would go a long way, especially for traveling players who are just passing through.
UPDATE: As of now, the course is only playable if you want to play some safari between the 5 available baskets. There's enough space and trees to make up some interesting holes, but otherwise this just isn't worth the stop.

What's with all the BBQ grills?
Pros: UPDATE NOTE: This review was made in Fall of 2006 and reflects the conditions from that date.
It's 18 holes. Not much opportunity to lose discs.
Cons: Tees not marked well. Boards flush with the ground mark each tee. In the fall, when I played, the faded gray of the wood blended in with the dried grass which also had lots of stickers. Ther was one tee I never did find.
Other Thoughts: It was interesting to note that when I played there, there were several other groups playing as well. I had the opportunity to talk with some of them as I played through and none of them was from the area.

Pros: There is a nice lake.
Cons: I could not find any signs or maps or anything. I kinda just picked a basket to throw to.
