No mountain, no creek, just danger

Pros: There are concrete pads and real, actual baskets.
There is a pretty lake nearby.
The only other pro is that the risk of hitting someone is mitigated by the fact that you'll never want to play this course a second time.
Cons: This is one of the worst ideas for a course I've seen. I was in Central Park in NYC a few weeks ago, and this felt every bit as busy. On a Tuesday evening. The park was humming with walkers, pick up basketball games, soccer practices, dog walkers, and people just standing around conversing.
If you're going to be in a park with this many people, it's probably a good idea to be well out of the way and have pretty short holes. Nope. Most of the holes here were bombers, and other than maybe the first hole, they were plenty close to park users. I was really nervous about throwing, and eventually I stopped and just walked the holes. I know you're not supposed to review a course where you didn't play all the holes, but I assume I get a dispensation when there are 10 people in the fairway. That isn't an exaggeration.
Even if the course were empty, it wouldn't get a high mark. It's mostly open with long walks between holes and pretty uninteresting lines and throws.
Other Thoughts: Dallas is maybe the best disc golf city in the country. There are plenty of great courses. This one does not fill a niche or serve any area lacking in courses. Best case, you have a crappy option when other great courses are nearby. Worst case, someone gets hit. I've never seen a course with a greater chance of hurting a bystander. No need for this.

fund during the week
Pros: Some nice open long shots.
Nice view of the lake.
Nice new baskets and great new tee pads.
Easy to follow with map and probably not too hard without, I believe Jim is working on signage.
Cons: Not sure what the layout was before, but pedestrians WILL come into play on a few .
Lot's of trash when I was there.
Other Thoughts: Nice little 9 hole but I would not want to play on a weekend in good weather as the pedestrians there will have no clue and not understand your yelling "fore" or waving around at all.
It's super close to my house so I'd probably come out here to practice during the week if low on gas. Watch the ant hills around 2-4. Not flat, minor elevation but not hilly.

Pros: The course layout has been improved by reducing the intersection of disc golfers with others in the park, and offering some new very scenic and fun holes. New Mach 5 baskets have been installed. Tee pads have been installed also.
Cons: Still only 9 holes. But, you can play the course twice. Signage is yet to come.
Other Thoughts: If land north and south of park, adjacent to the lake is made available, the course could be expanded to 18 holes.
