Short and Sweet
Pros: This course is one of the best taken care of that I've ever seen. We are talking emaculate for a disc golf course. Concrete tee pads, signs, alternate long tees, bridges, benches, etc. The designers and local club members have utilized every square inch of land and then some (even the parking lot is used on some alternate tees)! They are still working to pour tee pads and make it better. The park is very scenic and well taken care of.
Cons: This course is very short and relatively flat. This is only because the park in which it is located isn't very big or diverse in elevation changes. I would love to see what this club could do with more land.
Other Thoughts: It is very easy to score well here. I would not hesitate to take children or newcomers to this course to get them hooked!

A Friendly Place
Pros: When I arrived at Little Axe I was greeted by two locals who introduced themselves as the vice president and some other post of the local club. I got the feeling that they are there all the time and for that reason have been able to spruce up this quaint little piece of land to the point that there is no trash to be found anywhere. Even a gum wrapper wouldn't get past these guys. They have built multiple tee boxes, benches and bridges. There is no doubt in my mind that they have maximized to the n-th degree every usable square inch at this otherwise too small piece of land.
The ace runs are tantalizing. I even heard a chain-out in the brief amount of time I spent here. Aside from being small the land is good for disc golf in that it is woodsy with well defined fairways and landing areas and a small creek. The course has one of the most friendly vibes I have encountered in my disc golf travels. I would not be afraid to have my daughter tag along with me here.
Cons: The land available for the course is too small here, I would not use this course for working on round play or for fine tuning the all around game. This course is great for making runs and sinking the birds, which sometimes is what the doctor ordered. Hole number four, if memory serves me correct, is tight and close to a trespassing out of bounds that have you to hop a fence to get your plastic back.
Other Thoughts: I recommend Little Axe for beginners and ace seekers. It's a shame that the local club does not have more land to work with because they deserve it. This place is very well taken care of.

Pros: This is a great little short course. A place to shoot for aces and practice your short game. There are enough obstacles to check your accuracy and to provide some opportunity to change up your throws on a few holes. A great place to throw a friendly relaxing game, to introduce the game to someone, or to bring the kids.
I give a little extra on the rating for this course for its amenities. Easy to follow, holes well marked, paths, benches everywhere, concrete tees, and multiple tees. They've put some effort into this course and it shows.
Cons: It's not a course for those looking for a serious game or a real challenge.
It can get a little spongey after a rain in places, but not too bad.
Other Thoughts: I love this little course. I play it often when I'm in Oklahoma. It's great for short game practice and there's LOTS of ace runs. (Not that I've hit any yet)

Pros: Fun little coure that is well taken care of. I played here years ago before the club and it was nothing great. Now the club cleans, manicures, and has done concrete pads except three holes. Along with bridges for the little stream, they have rakes out there too which is good because you cant see the bottom of the creek. Fun course, you can play very fast and its never busy. Alt tees make for good back 9, but still is a shorty. It is pretty righty friendly but there are some anny lines mixed in.
Cons: Short course, lots of poison ivy during that time of the year. Tee signs are something that could be better. Some pads dont have signs and when they do, its just a number. Not too hard to follow though. Climbing over the fence(barb wire) can get tough at times if you throw over the fence.
Other Thoughts: Good beginner course and fun for ace runs and for playing tons of golf in a short time!

Pros: Can play a round in about 20 minutes with noone around. Nice layout for being small, has 9 alt. tee boxes they are 2 short of having all 18 boxes concrete. Each time you pass over the little creek there is a bridge, wish some bigger courses in tulsa took care of the pars as well as this one is kept. there are 2 rakes by the creek in case you throw it in they stay out there all the time it seems. there are also brooms to sweep off the tee boxes on many of the holes. I played with an older lady and her family she apperently is the one that runs the mini's there on wednesday nights. They are very proud of their little course and it shows. Plays in and around a lot of trees for such a little area but they are placed where it doesnt feel crowded, First pro tee is behind the parking lot towards the street by the lightpole, AM tee is second lightpole at the south end of the lot and the regular tee is plainly visable. Hole 9 pro tee is painted on sidewalk by the ticket booth near the baseball field outfield.
Cons: Too short for my liking but the pro tees are a nice challenge. First hole is marked #2 and so on but there are 9 holes.
Other Thoughts: If you are taking I-40 into okc or norman i suggest stopping here dont waste your time going to shawnee, for some reason this little one has a lot of charm.

Pros: If there was ever a place to hit an ace, or score really, really well, it's here. Good flow. Nice area.
Cons: Every hole is short.
Other Thoughts: If you've got kids or elderlies with you and want to have a fun round, go here, but don't expect any challenges. It is by far the easiest course I've ever played.
