good for novices, or for practicing
Pros: Almost every tee is concrete and easy to find.
Baskets from most tees are directly ahead and in plain view. This makes it easy for new players to find their way around.
Green scenery is aesthetic and well maintained.
Many holes are long and wide open. You can get in some really good driver practice here!
Cons: The final holes are near a playground that frequently has children around it. Not that I don't like children, it just makes me nervous because I have a tendency to overthrow sometimes!
The location is also close to a neighborhood, but I only found myself retrieving a disc from a front yard once.
There are several ditches between many holes of the course. On a dry day these ditches are pretty much empty, but beware if you play after it has rained because they can build up with gunky water. On the good side though, it is never deep enough to lose a disc, you just might have to wipe it off.
The course is quite flat in most places.
There are few trees but on the first hole several trees are positioned directly in front of the tee. This can be frustrating and get you off to a bad start.
Walking distance between some holes is far. And a few of the later holes have you walking back and forth.
Other Thoughts: I've been there four times now, all during peak hours, and have rarely seen more than three small groups of players. Unlike many courses in the DFW area, I have never had to wait on a group ahead of me to finish the hole. Now this can be either a pro or a con, depending on how you look at it. I have met many great people at crowded disc golf courses, so if your looking to make friends, you might want to go to lewisville lake or Denton's North lake park. But if you want a quiet, undisturbed round of disc golf, Leonard L. Woods is a good choice.

Doesn't Offend, Doesn't Excite
Pros: Clear-cut lines for fairways and straightforward play here: on every hole you know what the preferred attack should be and you can always see the basket. Great beginner course. Can be played quickly. Well maintained and a good mix of long and short holes. There's a playground at this course so if you have kids, that's a nice feature to have close by.
Cons: Overall, it's not a pretty walk - a "normal" neighborhood course. Sometimes there's lots of walkers and course winds through heavily traveled walkways.
Other Thoughts: You can get a good workout for your game on this course - it's open so you can try all of your shots on every hole and get a good training session in. On a windy day, it's a great place to practice those wind shots as there's nowhere to hide.

Little course, little challenge, alot of fun on windy days though
Pros: Short holes, fairly open, with few trees peppering fairways to keep it interesting. This course can be a beating in the summer with little protection from the sun, but if you want some fun on a windy day this course will definitely serve up a challenge being that it is basically devoid of windbreaks.
Cons: Short and difficult to play on hot, windless summer days. Another reviewer put it well, that the last two holes are basically baskets in the middle of fields.
Other Thoughts: If you have a friend who wants to play a round with you and they aren't very experienced, taking them here first would probably be a good experience for them. The course is open and very forgiving on any day with normal weather conditions.

Pros: This course is well kept and the locals are friendly. Most of the holes a wide open fairways with mabye a few trees as obsticals. It is very heard to lose a disc here because the course is so flat and wide open. If your just beginning I would recommend playing here for a safe rould of disc golf. Most of the holes are fairly short but some really allow you to unleashed your power or work on it.
Cons: The course go a little boring towards the end. The last few holes are just tees and baskets in a field. I think there were only two trees on the last 4 holes.
Other Thoughts: The course is definitely worth playing once or twice but there a lot better courses within 10 to 20 miles

A Simple Little Gem
Pros: This park is very clean, safe, and well maintained. The cement tee pads are excellent and the baskets are in great shape. The tee signs were easy to read and were in great shape. Some of the baskets on the front side are next to a drainage wash (with a downhill roll, you might find yourself in that OB) making you play smart on those holes. They have great little wooden signs near the baskets on most holes telling you where the next tee pad is located; that was very helpful. Most of the holes are wide-open shots and had just a few trees. You should not lose a disc here. They do have a bathroom and many trashcans on site.
Cons: This is a simple little gem of a course and really has very few negatives. However this is what I came up with. This park was fairly crowded and the course does follow the sidewalk through the first half of the holes. So waiting to throw can happen often, but keep in mind we did play this course on a Saturday. You do have to back track to some of the tees on the front 9, so keep your eyes on the group behind if there is one, but it really wasn't too bad. Last thing I can think of is there have been some hole adjustments, so some of the distances might be off on the tee signs. I would trust what is posted in our Hole Info, to be safe.
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor he is just OK for me.There are many ace runs pn this course. The holes do get a bit longer on the back nine. So it plays to you warming up before throwing long. This course didn't seem like much at first, but it turned out to be a fun little course. I can see myself going back there to play it again without a doubt.

Pros: If you're looking for an open course where you can really air out some discs then this is it.
There is a shallow concrete drainage ditch that snakes throught the course and provides a posted OB to avoid.
It has good concrete tee pads and signs.
It has a good variety of distances from 180' to 450'.
The out and back twice design means you can play half a round in a hurry if you need to.
Cons: This could be an excellent course if it had a few more trees. It does'nt have enough shade to protect golfers from the brutal Texas summer sun.
Some of the posted distances and pars are obviously not accurate which means some of the baskets have probably been relocated since the signs were put in.
A sidewalk snakes right down through the middle of the course and you are always having to wait for pedestrians to pass before throwing.
Other Thoughts: This course makes a great counterpart to it's heavily wooded big sister course, Lake Lewisville.

Pros: This is a fun course to play if you are looking for a less challenging round. There are many birdie holes and ace runs available. There is a good mix of short and long holes. There are enough long holes with good tree obstacles to keep things interesting. The last few holes are good for the big arm thrower. About 7 of the holes have long tees, but they are not concrete and are difficult to locate unless you really look or have someone to point them out. Concrete tees, quality baskets, signs marking distance and par (although some baskets have been moved since the signs were posted...like holes 5 and 6), restrooms, and the course is not usually too crowded so it is a good place to practice. 10, 11, and 13 are fun holes to play.
Cons: There is a lot of pedestrian traffic at this park and the walking path winds through the course with holes on both sides of the path so you're bound to have to sit and wait for someone to walk by before you can throw safely.
Other Thoughts: Avoid hot summer days and windy days. There isn't much shade or anything to block the wind. In tournaments, on or across the sidewalk means that you are OB as well as on or across the drainage ditch or road. Playing the OBs and the long tees makes the course much tougher. In tournaments, usually this course and Lake Park are used. The scores are usually higher on average at LL due to the OBs and there being little to block the wind. If you think this course is too easy, play the longs and play the obs!

Pros: Well maintained park in nice neighborhood. Clean bathrooms. Easy to find each tee and hole as you go along.
Cons: Mostly shorter holes, only hazard to speak of is a drainage ditch that runs through the middle.
Other Thoughts: Very nondescript course. Wide open, trees are usually singles, holes are rarely obstructed by anything at all. Worth looking at if you want to do back to back courses with Lake Lewisville Park on the other side of town.
