Pros: This course has a great mix of challenging and easy holes. It is also usually very clean.
Cons: A few of the holes are a little to easy if you have a big arm.
Other Thoughts: Are there any minis that go on here? I have not found any yet and I would like to participate if there are some.

Great short course!
Pros: Great short course! If you want to throw a nice, solid round and are looking for a midrange tune up that's heavily treed, stop by Bear Creek and throw a quick round. Some AWESOME geographical challenges! Bring your right bending mdrange. I use a kite here a lot.
Cons: Short. Not real challenging, although there are some water hazard holes and can definitely lose a disk in the water. Not all holes are playable for some one physically callenged or small children, although most of the holes are very family friendly.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun course to play with a group and marvel at long birdies, or to learn on. But watch the hazards!

Pros: Beautiful Area
Not too busy
Good for Pros and Beginners
Cons: Watch for Poison ivy
Rivers that you can't see, especially on 15
Other Thoughts: This was my first ever Disc Golf Course and by far my favorite, if you're within 20 miles it is well worth the trip, especially now that the weather is nicer

What he said
Pros: I had a good experience with the course, making my first Ace from the adv tee on the 1st hole. How ever, this course IS challenging. Its a really fun course and layed out well. Tees are marked easy and I didnt have too much trouble finding my way around.
Cons: First and biggest con I have, is the first time I played this course, I stopped at hole 12 simply because I could not find where the course picked up.
This course will make you work for your discs. I have almost lost a disc every time I've played. There are amateur and advanced tees on almost every hole. However some of them make no sense.
The upkeep sucks the more you get into the course also. Alot of sloppy players I find. I haven't had any cop trouble, but a lot of neighborhood locals play so I would say NO to beer or other.
Other Thoughts: Great course, bring crappy shoes and a fresh pair of socks, you'll need them for sure.

My home course
Pros: As far as the fun factor goes, Bear Creek Park is one of the best courses around. You can tell right away it's going to be a fun course by the over the creek shot on the first hole. There is a good variety here for right or left handed players, sidearm or backhand. I really like that there are alot of good ace run holes here, but you have to work for most of them. This course was fun when it was only 12 holes, but the addition of the back 6 is icing on the cake. There are alot of regulars at Bear Creek, so it's never hard to find somebody to throw with if your friends have sand in their vaginas.
Cons: One of the biggest cons of this course is the upkeep. A combination of a few disrespectful golfers, and slacking by the city, makes this course look a little trashy at times. Another serious con is cops cops cops. Haven't seen many in a while, but the city of Grapevine is notorious for harassing the local golfers. Beer is not allowed here, and they will ticket you. This course is also a disc eater. There are many holes with water trouble, but if you don't mind getting wet, you can find yours and probably a few others. Watch out for the pond on the back of 5, and the big creek on 15. Those are the two you need to worry most about. Also this course can get very sloppy after a good rain, so bring your crappy shoes if you are going to play. Bear Creek is a popular course, so if you go on a nice day, prepare to chill out for a while.
Other Thoughts: Overall, Bear Creek is a super fun course for all skill levels. This is a course everyone in the area should play.

Good ol G vine
Pros: Beautiful shots that can all be approached with diverse stlyes of throws. Some tomahawk where others sidearm and another backhands. Leaves in spring and summer make the course more challenging. There can be waits on the tees on particularly nice days but big groups are usually courteous and will let smaller groups pass. There's always a regular who can help you navigate as well, as a first timer may accidentaly skip a few holes, and miss the back 6 all together.
Cons: Water, water, water. Everyone has lost something to the water hazards at this course. The first hole plays over bear creek and will catch discs that hit the trees. Hole 5 has a pond behind it that isn't visible from the tees but will swallow a long shot. Over shooting 6 may land you in the creek. 10 plays with the creek to the right. 12 has some casual water throughtout. 15 is famous so throw something you won't miss. 15 sometime has water in front of the basket after heavy rain. 16 has creek to the left and behind. 17 and 18 can also land you in trouble if you shoot too far left. All of these hazards are deep enough to make plastic dissappear so beware! No alcohol is allowed here, and undercover police have been known to enforce it.
Other Thoughts: My absolute favorite course!

Worth the drive across town
Pros: Good variety of shots. Many short holes. Good concrete tee boxes. Liked the over the creek shots, it's drivable for most players. Has normal and advanced player tee boxes.
Cons: Baskets not painted not visible. Course not marked very well. It has the hole number at the tee but no map of hole. Some advanced tee's seem easier that novice ones. Trash in the creeks.
Other Thoughts: I played this course for the first time today. It was really a fun course. I can see it being more challenging during the summer with leaves on the trees. If it's your first time go with someone who's been there or get a course map.

Bear Creek Rundown!!!
Pros: -Dual t-pads and pin positions
-Shot variety (doglegs right and left, str8 shots, tunnel shots, a few open holes)...there are quite a few ace runs but not to the point where it's cheezy
-Terrain variety (makes good used of surrounding trees and creek that run through the park)
-Numerous holes with trash cans (let's keep these courses clean dgolfers, and if ya see trash, pick it up)
-Nice secluded courses, no traffic with hikers and dog walkers etc.
-Challenging course with regards the variety of shots and hazards, but not hard. It's a good play.
Cons: -No holes to really "open-up" on.
-Weekend and nice weather could lead to hole waits (bring a hack!!!)
-Look out for poison ivy, as with many courses. Never had poison ivy till just this past summer, got it bad at Gateway, but also noticed lots here when playing.
For all those d.golfers that have had it, I played with this one guy and he carried a bottle of hand sanitizer and wiped his discs of with it every time her threw into the woods, he sais he hasn't had poison ivy since!!! I haven't tried it, but maybe it works.
Other Thoughts: Good course, again, making good use of the surrounding terrain and wooded areas. Creek runs througt the course opening up the chance for water hazards and/or a lost disc (EVERYONE...should get a golden retreiver).
Lots of ace runs on this course...buddy hit one when we were out there...#17.
I'd definately play it again and give it my approval for sure. Fun course and not hard to find.

Pros: Fun course which is good for casual play and has a decent crowd on any given day.
Creek comes into play on a few holes and the overall variety of shots is good for such a "Homie" course.
Cons: It has a decent crowd on any given day and it isn't too hard too get stuck behind a large group of hackers.
Course is fairly short and easy which means most ADv level players go to one of the higher quality courses in DFW.
No way I can rate this course as highly as others on here considering there are so many good courses in the area.
