Bum Wrap

Pros: - Requires a number of different shots
- Majority of holes allow for multiple approach angles
- Creek forces you to be tactical, but doesn't hinder your angles
- Course was well kept and had decent flow
- Holes 2, 3, 6 and 10 were 'signature' type holes that make this course worth playing again
Cons: - Tee signs could be better
- Course map at hole #1 would also make this course more easily navigable
- The course does play across a walking/jogging path which requires the player to be constantly aware of foot traffic
Other Thoughts: In reading the previous reviews, this course gets a bum wrap for eating discs. I didn't see this to be the case at all. While water is present on most every hole, it only serves as a boundary and not really an obstacle. Without the water, this course would be fairly mundane and lack any sort of challenge. The lack of length on the course is offset by the strategic factor presented by the creek. Overall a good course and worth playing on a semi-regular basis. Not overly difficult and can be played fairly quickly.

Pros: They've removed most of the reeds and are doing work on the creek on 17. Looks like they're putting in large rocks. They're also putting in concrete tee pads on all holes. Nice combination of obstacles. Wooded, but open, too.
Cons: It can still be a disc eater, though losing one in the water is less of an issue than before
Other Thoughts: Love this course. It's a "home course." One day I'd like to check out a tourney there on a Sunday.

Pros: Wide open
Not crowded
Cons: Short
small variations
weak teeboxes and markers
Other Thoughts: Course isn't long and kind of boring, but its a good quick play. It was really really hot when I played and you can lose a disc or two in the creek that runs through the whole course

Pros: Great layout
Requires a good mix of throws
Flow from hole to hole is good
Nice elevation changes
Cons: Dirt tees are really in bad shape, constant fear of falling on your face if you have a run up.
Parking lot was abnormally hard to find.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great great course. It has a great layout, great flow, good elevation changes and it really challenges you to think about what you are throwing and how. The major issues with the course are that the dirt tees are horrid and a injury waiting to happen! This course eats discs! A river/creek runs through the entire thing so be careful, if you throw bad, short, or slightly off target you will have to search for you disc for ages and HOPE to find it, and if you play here regularly the money loss in plastic will add up.
BUT, dont let this scare you away this is a great course and if you are in the area play it!

Pros: There isnt really any pros, the course was not that great, i was disappointed.
Cons: To start it off to find the parking lot was hard enough. i was looking on the side of the road that had the jimmy porter sign.
The tees are horrible for your footing they are extremely bumppy. I like water holes but not so many that you have a risk on to loose a disc on a majority of your holes. There was one hole i think it was 12 they could use a sign to tell you where to go to find it, for first timers like myself.

Horrible for First Timers

Pros: This park has improved as far as the landscaping. City of Carrollton has mowed down a lot of the tall weeds/grass that makes it better for sight distance.
Cons: Not for beginners. Took me a long time to beat this course and play well. The more you play here, the better you will get.
Other Thoughts: Considering that I played here during the winter time and it has rained lately, this might be why it's so wet and muddy. When summer time comes and the drought takes over, I will give it another shot.

Pros: Nice use of available land for a couple of cool elevation change shots. Easy to navigate and some boy scout volunteer work is only adding to the playability of this course. The wind is kind of funky here but it's nice. Seems to work with you most of the time. Almost always mowed. Another course I would recommend playing tourney rules as far as ob is concerned. Really tightens it up. Most holes are birdie possibilities, but don't count on doing it.
Cons: Could use a tee box facelift, but not horrible. Can take a while to play a round in a group. A couple of the baskets could be replaced.
Other Thoughts: Nice place to spend a saturday. Worth a drive.

 "Disc Eater"

Pros: I just started playing the game in July '11. The better I get, the more I enjoy playing this course. A variety of shots are needed to effectively play the full 18. On some holes, a back hand just wont do.The course is unforgiving and demands precision shots. If you happen to throw your disc in a hazard (which is highly likely), there is a greater than zero chance you'll come out with a few more discs than you started with. Give me a call if you see one with a paw.
Cons: My buddy and I affectionately call this course the "disc eater". Between the two of us, we've lost 6 since July '11. Your first victory is getting through the 18 with all the discs you started with. You can see moderate improvements being made to the course over the past month. If a few more bushes and tree limbs were trimmed back and concrete tee boxes were installed, this course would rivals the best in the area.
Other Thoughts: If you have some skill and can throw without fear, this course is sure to entertain.

Pros: This course offers up diverse challenges with creeks trees ponds and thick vegetation makes for interesting rounds
Cons: If you hit the thick brush just say goodbye to that disc unless you have waiters and a machete.
Other Thoughts: I am new to this sport and learned about the shoes on the electric wires if you ace or just wear your designated DG shoes out they are retired by hanging for all to see!!!!!
