Pros: Course gives you everything you need with maybe the exception of rollers. Tomahawks or thumbers may be needed in your arsenal. Challenging.
Cons: Lake to your left on 2 holes and then back on your right for 1 hole that will eat your discs if you're not very careful. Parking seems to always be a problem in the sense of avoiding dings in your car because the lot lines up right next to the course on several holes.
Other Thoughts: New discs are usually sold by a guy, so don't worry about having to hit up a store before going if you're wanting a few new discs.

Bring your 'A' Game
Pros: Very good layout
Most holes require accuracy off the tee, which is a plus for me because I think this improves your game.
If you are new to the game this course will be quite challenging.
I was glad to see that the two water holes (3&7) had routes you could take with very little risk of getting wet. The back 9 are a little more open than the front, and make for a good chance to work on distance, especially 10-13 and 17. 16 is probably the easiest hole - go through the 'tunnel' rather than around to the right as the sign suggests.
Cons: Heavy play during nice weather. Summer foilage makes some holes harder, esp. 3, 5, 7. On a windy day, the wind is especially tough on the lake holes - 2, 3 and 7.
Other Thoughts: Please, here and at all dg courses, dispose of your litter in provided containers or take it with you!

Title of review
Pros: Overall very nice course. The breeze off the lake is nice on a hot summer day. The elevation, trees, and lake make great natural obstacles.
Cons: Like most courses this one is difficult to navigate your first time out, but the friendly locals can help with that. It seemed a little crowded but we did go on a Saturday. My biggest complaint would have to be the park roads that the course crosses. On the weekends these can be filled with traffic. So be sure and look both ways before crossing roads. Safety first!

day at the lake
Pros: Nice course with a lot of different layouts for each hole. Mostly shaded near a lake. The lake does come into play on several holes with elevated pins make for some fun drives.
Cons: The course is not well maintained as evident of the trash that litters many of the holes.

Pros: *Very few (if any) courses in the DFW area are as scenic as Lake Park.
*Several holes overlook the lake and holes 3 and 7 have you throw shots over the lake.
*All holes are reachable for players that can throw 400ft+; however OB and large mature trees prevents this course from being a pitch and putt course.
*Fairways are fair, hit your line and make your putt and you can score extremely well
*Concrete tee pads long enough to land a Cessna
*Nice baskets that reward good putting by catching virtually everything
*Porta-potties (didn't think I'd ever mention this as a pro)
*Sits several hundred feet from camping and a boat ramp- makes this a great weekend get away for out-of-towners
*Course sits on sandy soil, and drains EXTREMELY well. After a few days of rain in DFW you can expect to see players from all over the metroplex at this course because it will be 100% mud-free
*Some of the most fun and scenic greens I have ever putted on. (Especially the holes close to the lake)
*Every hole is simply, fun to play
*Beautiful lakes attract beautiful ladies in swimsuits...not bad scenery for a dg course.
*Alcohol is allowed in park as long as it is not in glass containers.
Cons: *Lots of traffic can make for long rounds, especially on weekends when weather is ideal
*Lots of non-golfers traverse the fairways/greens to get down to the lake (only a minor annoyance)
*Look out for fisherman that fish off the rocks on hole 7
*Can't rely on tee signs- but this isnt a big problem, course is very easy to follow.
Other Thoughts: *Location (minutes off of I-35), scenery, and quality golf holes make this course a great destination for locals or anyone passing through.
*Course has a good number of locals that are willing to show you around- If you spot "Old-Man" Tom (The course designer) in his white pick-up be sure to stop by and say hello and thank him for all he has done to get this fun course in the ground.

Pretty looking course
Quality double chain baskets. Very long (20') concrete tees... somewhat overkill for a 250' hole but nice nonetheless. Adequate tee signs. Logs have been laid down throughout the course to help stem erosion problems. Ample benches and trash cans. Good use of "Next Tee" signs to help keep you from getting lost. One of the few DG courses that actually has defined greens; they add a nice look to the course. Navigating the back half of the course is easy and obvious. Hole #3 is a great risk/reward shot with the wide open RHBH anny shot out over the water, or fight the heavily wooded path over land. Hole #7 is the same shot in the opposite direction, so it's a hyzer shot over the water. This is a really nice looking course and the upkeep is evident. The holes bordering the water are a surreal on a foggy morning. Other than fishermen there doesn't look to be any interference from non-disc golfers.
Navigating the front half of the course can be tricky for first timers. The distance posted on the sign for hole #5 was pretty far off of reality which lead me to waste some time looking for the right basket. Tee signs are missing on holes #8 and #12. The tee sign for #13 is too close to the tee to allow a good throw and follow-through. Parking close to tee #1 can be limited. Other street parking is close to several fairways, i.e. cars get hit. A few fairways play close together (#6 vs. #9).
This course is a tale of two halves with the end result being a good balance of length and trees. The first half plays pretty technical through lots of trees while the back half is significantly more open and gives you a chance to get some distance on your discs. I did enjoy my round at the "Lake course" and would play again in a heartbeat. I can see how it might suffer a bit on replays but this one is worth checking out for players of all levels.

Pros: This course may be hilly and wooded, but fairways are open enough that it is enjoyable. There are always great people out there.
Cons: Hit a tree or get off a fairway and you are in trouble. Brush is very difficult to throw out of.
Other Thoughts: The holes on the lake can be stupid when it is windy, be careful not to lose a disc, but you probably still will.

One of a kind!
Pros: What a beautiful disc golf course! The scenery is great right next to the lake with a few holes right next to the beach. The rest of the course plays back into the park with lots of large trees makes it nice to look at. The teepads are giant cement, if you need a larger teepad, then you need to learn how to throw again. The park was nice and clean.
Cons: The signs were old and baskets were older. Some navigation issues on the front nine. A few of the fairways were rather close together, so keep an eye open for other player's discs. Easy pars on most of the holes, longer holes would be nice.
Other Thoughts: Great park with awesome views of the lake! If you are looking for a very difficult course, go elsewhere. However if you are looking for a nice enjoyable, relaxing round of disc golf, this place can't be beat!

Pros: Gigantic teepads, could possibly land a small plane on one. gorgeous park, that is well maintained. two shots over the lake(3 & 7) which is always a treat. great course design, good flow from hole to hole.
The locals here are great, i lived in lewisville for 1.5 years and you can go up to any of these guys and ask them any question about golf or the course and theyll tell you, or just play a round with them, you might learn or see a couple holes that you wouldnt have even thought about.
Weekly minis on tuesday night and saturday. plenty of competition lots of people show up.
plenty of technical holes, with a lot of shot variety.
Cons: there would probably be a little confusion between hole 5 and 6 as you have to backtrack a little.
lots of walkers, and fisherman especially on hole 7, just be patient and they will move, most of the time...
45 min away from my hotel, so i have to settle for bear creek, which isnt bad but its not lewisville lake
Other Thoughts: dont forget to stop by the old man with the white ford selling discs out the back of the truck. that ole man tom, the course designer, and several time grand master world champion. be sure and tell him how much you loved the course(because you will) and dont be too shy to ask him any question about discs or shots, this man knows it all, and he's one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. AND HE SELLS HIS DISCS CHEAP TOO!!
this is my favorite course of all time, i havnt played too many yet but this one will always stick out in my mind. whenever i think best courses ive played, this is definitely one of them.

Pros: Nice course with lots of fun holes. There are long teepads on every hole but you dont need them except for maybe one hole(17). Good view of the lake and two shots that play over the lake(3/7). Great to play after a rain because of the sandy soil. Pretty when green like it was today. Mostly a RHBH course but the are a couple of annys. It uses the little terrain very well and makes this a fun course.
Cons: Some signs are missing. Gets very crowded on the weekends. Can be confusing first time out due to the cris crossing on a couple of holes. Parking can be dangerous.
Other Thoughts: I think they have a mini on Saturday afternoon. If you get out early you can gets the parking spots that lower your chances of getting your car hit.....just take a second and look when you pull in.
