Pros: Multiple shots needed.
Cons: Traffic can be a beast
Some climbing required (Fat people...i.e. ME...do not like climbing hills)
No rope to use when crossing creek (HINT)
Can lose your disc when throwing off the cliff or...pretty much anywhere.
Other Thoughts: Like playing here when I don't lose a disc. Hate playing here after it rains...mud is bad.

Pros: -Concrete T-pads
-Now has great signage
-Most holes have about 2 / 3 different pin positions, which they are starting to move around more frequently. (BRAND NEW pin positions on holes 3, 4, 14, 18 )
-Numerous holes have more than one t-pad, some three.
-Signs for each hole are in the works.
-Easily started at front 9 or back 9
-Shot variety (bring all your shots, cause you'll need em on this course)
-Terrain variety (treed holes, uphill, downhill, wide open, dog-legs left and right, water... it's got it all)
-Very easy to find being right of I-20 and Winscott
Cons: -If it's been raining within the week prior, be prepared for muddy/slick t-pads, maybe a few washed out holes. (they're workin on it)
-Does get quite populated when the weather is nice. (bring a hack or something to pass the 5-10 min wait per hole)
-Newbie course, meaning a lot of 1 disc throwers congregate there.
-Does get quite trashy (pick up your fricken trash people and quit spray painting everything)
Other Thoughts: Front 9 -- few treed holes, mostly open shots with elevation changes, some "big-arm" holes
Back 9 -- few open holes, mostly very treed holes, creek runs through this half of the course, low ceiling shots, tunnel shots, any's and hyzers (great practice for your finesse game)
Best time to play would be during the week days before 3:00 p.m. or earlier than 12:00 noon on the weekends. Cold or windy weather de-populates the course as well.
If you haven't played it, you should. Pros out way the cons for the most part. My home course... and it's a good one.

Pros: A nice variety of wooded and open shots with alot of elevation changes. Nice information board on hole 1 which gives you tips on where to buy discs and what not. The locals seem to take care of the park very well building benches and tables on almost every hole. The course is very well maintainted and there is not much trash littered on the park.
Cons: Can be pretty messy out there if it has rained the previous day due to really sticky mud. Be careful on hole 4 because if your disc goes too far rite you may hit a car or have your disc ran over. Alot of people like to play this course so I'd suggest going out there with a large group so you don't get held up by other players.
Other Thoughts: This is a must play if you're in the area. The scenery is very nice and the course is very lively with rabbits and other sourts of animals, I've even ran accross a Road Runner out on the course!

Pros: This is a great course with a fun and challenging layout from the beginning to the end. This course has nice concrete tee pads with good bright yellow Innova DISCatcher baskets and great signs with all hole info. The front nine has some good open shots with good length when in the long positions. You will need good accuracy here to score well with a lot of trees and a creek that comes into play on a few holes. There course is is really clean with a great amount of trash cans and benches throughout the course.
Cons: If you want to get a good round in, you might want to get there early to beat the crowd. It can get overly packed here with huge groups of Mob Golfers. Be prepared to wait on some holes, or maybe some groups will let you play through. Parking could be an issue on a nice day.
Other Thoughts: Over all, this is still a fun and challenging course to play and is great for players of all skill levels and one of the best in Fort Worth.

Pros: you will need a full bag of disc, water does play on holes but most disc will be easily retrievalbe from the streams, nice looking tee pads, course plays smoothly as most holes are connected well, its also nice how 1 is right off parking lot and 9 finishes at parking lot, as well as 10 starting near the same parking lot and 18 finishing just a few steps away from parking lot, it makes it easy to play just 9 or start on the back 9 if course is backed up, nice scenery change as well as you will be in a wooded area that looks nice during fall, as well as a view of sky line on 3 and 4
Cons: too many players, and some of the regulars will hog course (we (party of 2) got stuck behind a group of 11 who would not let us play through) it really slowed the game down, we ended up grouping with two other group of twos waiting for the group of 11, was told by one of the guys that this group does it all the time. with the amount of players tee signs would be a nice edition
Other Thoughts: wind can make life miserable from hole 2 to 9, be ready to 3 and four put because your disc gets lifted and carried. and hole 4 is very long and is tough on windy days, 8 is also usually throwing into the wind and makes for a challlenge

Very tough course
7 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: This is a very challenging course that requires every shot in your bag. There are multiple tees and basket positions for almost every hole. Water comes into play on a several holes, and there are massive elevation changes. This is not a multi-use park, so you seldom have to worry about people on the course who are not golfers.
Cons: From a lot of tees (Nos. 2, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15 sometimes, 16 and 17), you can't see the basket, so you either guess on the position or walk ahead to look. Some of this can be mitigated by looking as you walk to the tee. Two holes (Nos. 2 and 4) are nearly impossible to par for the average golfer in the short position. However, if you've got the arm, No. 4 lets you throw a 700-foot downhill shot. There are no restroom facilities.
Other Thoughts: Changes several years ago eliminated two throws across the creek, including my favorite hole, No. 16. This was done because the creek crossings were difficult, but the changes did not improve the course.
