 Pretty Sweet

Pros: Assuming that you are playing from the advanced tee's.... this course is very fun and challenging and offers unique holes that you cannot find anywhere else in the N. Texas area. I think that the Grapevine parks department does a very suitable job of upkeep on the course and it is pretty easy to navigate.
Cons: From the shorter tee's this course is way too easy.... If you arent familiar with this park you could easilly get lost trying to find 13 unless someone tells you where to go. I would suggest to the people who run the course out there to come up with better signs at the beginning of the course.
Other Thoughts: Fun to play and another sweet park in the N. Texas stable.

Pros: Let me start by saying that some of these holes have gorges/large creeks to clear off the tees. They are amazing. Most of them do have a path down in them to recover your discs, but plan to climb to get them. Multiple tees can make this as tough as you want. This is a beautiful park and most people are not near the disc golf course portion. There are some really great holes, making you bring out most of your shot arsenal. Direction and distance will both be needed on many tee shots. #18 is fun possible blind ace hole to finish up the round. Bathrooms are on the other side of the ball field and there are many trash cans along the way.
Cons: You may need help finding your way around without a map or a guide. Getting from hole to basket may take some climbing. Some holes have some water that is dark/deep enough that you may not recover a disc on (#14 & 15 for sure). I do advise walking ahead on the questionably safe holes on your first time out as sometimes the trouble spots are close by the baskets. Getting from #12 to #13 is not marked as it makes you walk clear past where you started (which means back to the parking lot & into the woods across the entrance drive between left field and 3rd base of the ball field). You may need to ask for help.
Other Thoughts: This course is fantastic when it comes to a great variety of hole designs. I have a great time and really enjoyed how amazing some of the tougher holes play out. Most of the course is under tree cover, so the sun is not to much of a burden. Great course, well maintained, and there is lots of trash cans along the way. Basically, almost every hole from the shorts is a certain par 3 except for maybe hole #11 in the long left pin position. So, it's not a long course and it does have some ace potential.

Pros: this course will have you trying all kinds of shots. there are some very challenging holes. you will need extra discs on this course.
Cons: hole 12 can be a bit annoying seeing that you have to be a billy goat to get to the hole after you throw your shot.

Pros: All kinds of landscape features in play. Ponds, low shots, high shots, drop shots, creeks, sharp hooks, open fairways, window shots. I love it. Very cool woods area/ layout to the course.
Cons: Navigating is an issue about 2/3 of the way through the course.
Other Thoughts: Bear Creek just has that x factor that makes a course really enjoyable.

Pros: Excellent course. Well maintained, lots of different shots needed to score well. Tees usually well marked. A few holes tee off directly in front of large, deep creekbeds with fallen trees or water manes as direct bridges. Lots of fun.
Cons: To get from hole 12 to 13 you have to exit out to the parking area to cross a large creek, but it's only unclear the first time through.
Other Thoughts: None of the holes are super long, but lots of variety. Some fairways are an alley in the trees, some are an open field. Creeks in play frequently. Again, very fun course.
