Decent course in city park
5 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: - Very nice teepads, no complaints about them being too short.
- Course is in a well-kept city park in a nice neighborhood. Grass is mowed
- Fairly easy to navigate as a first-timer; course generally has good flow from hole to hole, and most of the baskets have signage nearby pointing to the next tee
- A few interesting shots taking into account the (dry today) drainage ditch that runs through the park: #5 plays as an island hole surrounded by the ditch, #7 pin sits a few feet in front of the ditch adding a bit of risk.
Cons: - The course plays on either side of a walking/jogging/biking path (marked as OB) which was in use constantly while I was there. Beware the pedestrians/bicyclers.
- A few signs are missing or damaged; some do have some questionable distances listed. The course map on this site seems to have pretty accurate distances listed.
- The course is pretty level elevation-wise.
- There are trees around most of the course, but nothing that would give a technical feel or provide much in the way of challenging lines. #14-18 in particular are fairly wide open.
- All but two holes are under 400ft in length, and half are under 300ft. Big arms won't get much use out here, which would be a "con" for some.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't call this either a technical course or a place to really air out some throws, but it definitely would be a good place for a beginner, or anyone just looking for relatively quick round. It seems like this course be a decent warm-up for Lake Lewisville DCG. This is a course that would be difficult to hate or to really love.

Pros: Nice use of available land. Pretty neat layout in the middle of a neighborhood. Lots of straight shots. Pretty much bombing or buzzing. Lots more challenging and fun with tourney obs. Hole 5 is more fun as an island hole. Store right around the corner. Restrooms
Cons: Just an average course. Definitely played worse. Flat. No elevation change.
Other Thoughts: Nice combo with lake park. Not really busy.

The coarse comes with training wheels
Pros: Easy course with a good lay out. Nice and open with almost zero chance of losing a disc. I often use this course to work on my technique or to break in new discs
Cons: This will bore the veteran/pro player. If seen multiple -10 scores registered. The park can become congested at times with youth sports practices and general park goers. Always Remember - obliviates have the right of way
Other Thoughts: If you're a beginner, get to this course.

Great for newbs
Pros: This is a great course to introduce new players to disc golf. There are a few trees on each hole, enough to make things tricky, but not too annoying. The average length of the holes slowly builds up from the beginning to the end. The back 9 is great for practicing your drives. Pretty much no chance to lose a disc.
Cons: Not much variety. The last several holes are just long and open. Very flat and repetitive.
Other Thoughts: Probably won't go back here on my own, but perhaps with someone who wants to learn.

L.L. Woods Rundown!!!
Pros: -Concrete Pads
-Well manicured and very, very clean
-Nice surrounding neighborhood
-Shot Variety (80%mids and 20%drivers from box, anis, hyzers, and str8 line shots)
-Water fountain at hole 10 or something was cool to see (refill station if you will)
Cons: -Lots of park traffic
-Pretty bland course...not much terrain variety
-Mostly short holes.
Other Thoughts: Really decent course. Fun to play and great for beginners. Not much to it, but it does offer everything you might want in a small course -- spotty trees, water hazard (if played as so), slight elevation changes mostly found around baskets, mostly short drives with last few holes being of decent size. Good use of the space given.
Great midrange practice course with not-so-long fairways and spotty trees. Also would make a great course for glow games. You wont be losing discs out here.
Easy course to find your way around and it also has a nice flow to it. If you're in the area I'd say it's worth stopping by.

Pros: Concrete tee boxes, well maintained, easy to follow layout. There should also be no reason you should ever lose a disc here.
Cons: No really challenging holes. Sometimes the park gets crowded by non-disc golf players.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course to play to get some quick practice worked in.

Nice - Open
Pros: Easy to get to, the course is well laid out and makes good use of trees, creek etc...to force you into better shotmaking. Not at all crowded, so you can throw multiple discs and work on your game.
Cons: The last 3-4 holes are a little disappointing; they pretty much just zig zag across a field. Lots of fire ant hills, especially on holes 6-9.
Other Thoughts: There are plenty of places where you can 'loop back' and re-play several holes if you'd like. 6th tee was a little out of the way - cross the bridge and look up the hill in front of you.

open city park
2 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: -well laid out with decent signage
-very easy to navigate
-nice suburban park, clean, trash cans
-confidence boosting short holes
-some well placed trees dotting the course
-playground for the kids
-play the paths and beyond as OB for a more challenging round
Cons: -very short, front 9 are all duece or die.
-mostly open, not too challenging unless you play the path and beyond as OB
-pedestrian paths all throughout the park, weaving through the fairways. good for OB challenge but lots of people walk through the park
Other Thoughts: This is a long skinny neighborhood park. The front 9 goes back to the end, back 9 comes back and circles around a more open area where the holes are longer.
Pedestrian paths and small sewer canal (OB) run through the park. There are some trees, used well to create obstacles. No tight lines but there is more than 1 line on many fairways.
This is a fun course and a decent place to get in a round but it's not memorable. A couple places to air out the big guns. If you live nearby or happen to be in the neighborhood then there is no reason not to play here. But you could just go to Lake Park or any of the other great courses in the area and probably have a bit more fun, unless you just want to come here and destroy the scorecard.

at least its something to shoot at
Pros: The course is nicely laid out with minimal distance between each hole. The course is part of a park so the fairways are very nicely maintained. If you lose a disc here there's something wrong with your game.
Cons: The course is VERY short and the holes are laid out on top of one another. Also there are few obstacles and OB other than fellow park goers.

Overall Average Course
For the most part a very short course, up until the final few holes. Easy course to play if that's what you're looking for. Nice concrete tees and double chain baskets upholding the standard for most DFW area courses. The tee signs are decent quality. There are multiple pointers to the "Next Tee" to help navigation. Some pointers are located on the baskets and others are separate signs. The course makes good use of pin placements next to the water's (okay... drainage ditch's) edge on some of the middle holes to up the challenge factor. Challenge can also be increased by playing sidewalk and beyond as OB. Restrooms and trash cans on the course.
Some holes play very close to each other; combine that with tee signs that have incorrect distances and you have a recipe for confusion. E.g. On hole #4 there are two visible baskets very close together and it's not obvious which one should be played. [As a general rule stick to your side of the sidewalk.] The sidewalk weaves through the park and can lead to pedestrian interference. Several holes in the middle of the course are missing tee signs, luckily the concrete tees make it easy to see the tee boxes. No elevation changes. This course (standard tees) is too easy for intermediate and up players.
There's a rumor of Long/Pro tees on this course and I did see a marker for one of them, but they're flush with the ground and unmapped making them virtually impossible to play for first timers. When playing this course as an ~900 rated player I felt like I could birdie just about every hole. A few of the latter holes take a decent long throw or roller to get into birdie position and those holes are usually pretty open. Sometimes it's nice to play a decent course where you can rock the scorecard and don't really have any risk of losing a disc either.
