Pros: Great variety of shots to use
Nice effort by locals to provide benches at most holes.
Difficult but fair for beginner to intermediate skill levels
Cons: Where to start????
Poor drainage after rain or snow (especially holes 1 and 2)
Tiny parking lot
Very crowded on weekends (too many hackers and mob golfers)
Other Thoughts: I've played this course twice now. After the first time, I had it ranked #2. What a freefall after my second round here. Probably the single most reason for my dissapointmemt is the overwhelming number of mob golfers, What up guys? Please break off into groups of 4 or add a fifth wheel if absolutely necessary. It really is a joke to do that on such a crowded course. The Great Z-Boaz, PDGA sanctioned tourneys and all..... Sorry, I'll play Bicentennial over in Crowley before I'll wait and wait and wait to tee off at this course again.

Pros: Very well maintained BY disc golfers, great variety of shots from long to shorter(more precise) shots. Doglegs left and right, and throwing over the creek with a lot of trees also provides a nice challenge. Also throwing off an elevated plane on several holes was a favorite of mine.
Cons: Sometimes can get a bit crowded when you go at the wrong time
Other Thoughts: Certainly worth checking out, as I do everytime Im in the area.

Pros: Nice forested park that has few holes running by a road. Will provide any one a challange that is looking for one. The community has done a lot by provided seats at every hole for resting and a nice wood monument on hole 15
Cons: The only con to this course is that theres no map views to guide people.
Other Thoughts: Its pretty much my home away from home

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.

A True Challenge
Pros: Elevation Changes
Cons: Lot's of Teenagers Have Taken Over
Other Thoughts: This was the best course in town for a long time, and is still one of my favorites, but the crowds have made this course one to avoid on most beautiful weekends. Best time to play is during extreme weather conditions. Better than waiting for a dozen teens to throw their one disc.

Pros: Good course with just about every single shot that you can think of. You get to try out your technical game in the woods where you better hit your lines or you can get in trouble quickly. Then you go out in the open and really get to let loose. The elevation is used well here which is always a plus near D/FW. Ths course doesnt favor one type a player except the consistant one. There are extra tees that keeps the course from getting boring and opens up many different shots. The baskets are in good shape as well. This is not a regular par 54 course to where you just throw with no regard of where your disc lands, there are many placement holes where you must think about your shot and then execute it and sometimes execute it just to have a good next shot. This course will test your mental game along with your phyical conditioning.
Cons: Can get hot and it is a long walk. No signs can be a pain in the butt sometimes. Navigation can get hard but if you take your time to look around you should be good to go. This course can get crowded quickly. There is lots of trash scattered round as well.
Other Thoughts: This course along with many other courses in the area make fo a great road trip and a change to other courses in the area. Bring lot of drinks because it can get very hot and rounds can get long due to traffic. Enjoy this great course and have fun playing one of the best!

Love at First Drive
Pros: Beautiful terrain, with several elevation shots....a BIG plus in dfw....This has got to be one of the most proffesional looking courses i have played to date with A TON OF VARIETY...several wooded, open, uphill, and downhill holes...creek comes into play on 3 holes.... a lot of holes you definitely have to commit to a line and hit it, the good thing is many holes have a couple lines you can choose from which can really make a round fun and interesting...Best advice is shoot for the fairway, take your threes and keep on walking....theres a couple birdie holes but you have to pick your battles, this is def not a pitch and putt course, some of these holes par 3 seems impossible :) ....
Z-Boaz has Plenty of open holes to just let it rip, mixed with plenty of technical holes that are long and short...and another good thing is LOTS OF BENCHES!! always a plus....several trash cans too, they just dont seem to get used very much :(
Cons: NO SIGNS!! i noticed a couple of marble slabs next to the first couple tee pads....other than that, nothing.....if its your first time you def need someone to show you around!! Lots of trash, a lot bagged, but a lot on the ground as well....but thats def a sign that this place is used a lot.... oh and btw i didnt see any restrooms either..
only reason its not a 5 is bc lack of signs and lots of trash, if trash was picked up and they put some signs up this would without a doubt be an easy 5
Other Thoughts: Lots of People here...zboaz is probably one of the most popular courses in the dfw area...and for a good cause....i will highly recommend this course to everyone....
Bring your "A" game bc your gonna need it....has plenty of holes that you can par one round and easily take a 5+ the next....if it seems like its not all that hard, play from the longs with all par 3's, shoot a 54 and you'll feel like youve won the lottery...
another note- this ones def not the place to bring a newbie to try and learn the sport....it can be pretty hard/frustrating at times, even for the best of players

Pros: Multiple tees on most holes give options to players. terrain is veried with open, wooded, and some holes playing across and around a creek. Some elevation changes also. #9 plays off a cliff over the tops of the trees.
Cons: No facilities of any kind there, not even a port-a-potty. navigation could definitely be an issue if you don't have a guide.
Other Thoughts: Great course to play and very challenging. there are several pin positions so you have to look for the pin each time you play. Course is very popular and gets crowded at times. with a few changes and additions this could be a fantastic course. I would say it is not very beginner friendly. geared more to the experienced, advanced player.

The locals ruined this course for me.
Pros: This is a 5 star course easy!Championship level layout.You will need every shot in your bag.Best variety of holes I have ever played.You never face the same challenge hole to hole.
1.By far the best starting hole EVER!!
It's short enough to nab a quick birdie to start the round.This can turn to a bogey or worse with one bad throw.
2.There's a part of me that hates this hole.That aside You can't ask for a much better/challenging hole.A tight tee shot and a blind uphill approach.Playing safe can net you a par in most cases but going for bird can land you double/triple land real quick.
4.Great hole that puts the best that z-boaz has to offer in one long ass hole.This is a par 4 to mere mortals(even that's a hard goal for the average player)
8.This hole hugs the hill that separates the nines.This hole has the feel of a ball golf hole especially when in the short right position.You have to avoid the "valley of death" which is protected by a large dormant tree with branches dare you to hug the dogleg on this hole.
9.Considered the "signature"hole at Z-boaz.You tee off above the treeline about 40 ft below is the lower field where the basket is.
You need to carry 250 feet or the trees will knock you down.If you get to the field it's an easy par and possibly a birdie.I witnessed a hole in one at the 2008 z-boaz open.
11.Great short technical hole with pin positions right,left and center.Great tunnel shot.
12.Another championship level hole at the Z!
You toss out to a field through a a tunnel of trees.Than you most navigate a low tunnel shot through an amazingly hard to hit hole between trees.
14.Over the creek shot with enough trees to ruin your day but fair enough to give you a real chance at a hole-in-one.
18.Great finishing hole from either tee.It really shines from the longs.With a low slightly hyzer tee shot over the creek.Once you reach the green there are a lot of trees that can knock your disc into the creek.
Cons: This course has the worst locals of any course I have played.That's not to say they all suck.Some are quite nice.They play in large groups without letting singles play through.They have an overly snobby attitude about themselves.Seem to be intolerant to beginners and guests unless they know them.
It's also crowded to the point of ridiculousness.Half the time I go to play I end up leaving because of all the people.This might explain the locals bad attitude actually.
Other Thoughts: If you want to play a course that can kick your Ass but never feel like the holes are unfair.This is about the best DFW has to offer.With that said play early on a weekday or you'll be waiting on the tee a long time,LOL.This is the only course that took me over an hour and a half by myself.

Pros: Where to begin on this one! The challenge is top notch! The scenery on the holes is certainly enjoyable, especially the large trees creating tunnel shots. Hole two goes straight up a cliff! Each hole is distinctly different from the next. It will challenge all aspects of your game, short/long, accuracy and long drives. Small creek comes into play on a few courses. Baskets are used, but in great shape.
Cons: Only two things worth mentioning. The course had a good deal of trash on it. There were some navigation issues, but nothing that can't be figured out easily. More signs would be helpful.
Other Thoughts: The best course that I have played in the area! If there were signs on all the holes and the trash was picked up, I would rate higher. All in all, a fantastic course! If I lived in the immediate area, I would play this course all the time. Definately worth a long drive to get to. The best in the area!
