what could of been
4 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -This review is pretty simple because there is not much to talk about-Its an average course.
*great layout kind of. Since you are playing the tee as if its right of previous basket, the course is actually put together well
*nice clean park-mowed well
*Great lake view over Dallas
*couple of park lots
*good use of tree obstacles
*since no teeboxes, safari golf is an easy option
*good set up for the area they were given
Cons: *No teeboxes- not even a worn piece of grass by teeboxes
*no tee signs
*no course map
-honestly these above is what kills this course
*people have started taking chains from basket
*walking path through course- was not very active though when i was there. It probably comes into play 4 or 5 times on this 9, i mean 8 hole course)
*would of liked to seen a few holes moved closer to water just to add the element in
Other Thoughts: This course could get a 2.5 to 3 for a 9 hole course, if it just had something missing for guiding. Maps, Teeboxes, signs, painted arrows on trees, Anything. The course design and set up plays better then the 1.5 i gave it, But since you really have no clue where you are going, where you are throwing, It gets bumped down. With a little TLC, this course would be a nice little 9. I truely hate giving this course this score, but under the current playing conditions, it is what it is.

Not bad for practice/beginners
Pros: -Baskets are in good shape
-Not a lot of heavy traffic with other players
Cons: -Missing one basket
-No clear path direction
-Few tees but not enough for the baskets present
-Baskets not clearly numbered
-Walking path through most throwing zones
Other Thoughts: For a safari course, this is pretty average. Besides missing the one basket, the course is in good condition. No real fear of losing discs unless you throw WAY off the mark and make it to the lake!

Pros: -nice, fairly clean park
-the baskets are in decent condition, a few a missing a couple chains
-the park has elevation, a pond, a fair amount of trees around 7-9, and a great view of the lake
-potential to play some really cool safari layouts
Cons: -basket 2 is missing
-no tee pads, not even worn dirt near tee areas
-pedestrian paths throughout, well-used by walkers and joggers
-obviously, navigation can be a problem
Other Thoughts: This is actually a pretty nice park and with a defined layout it could be a really fun 9 holer. As it is, it is a passable course with some decent looks if you play from basket to basket, or just look around for a fun place to tee off from after the last basket.
If you park on the south side of the park at the end of Lakeview Dr, basket 1 is the closest one just past the playground area. Hole 2 used to throw down the hill from there to a basket in the open field but now it is gone. Just turn to the right and shoot towards basket 3. The remainder of the course plays around the edge of the park, counterclockwise.
Holes 7 through 9 have a number of trees in play and can be pretty challenging depending on from where you tee off. A small pond is located in the middle of the park and could easily be brought into play if you make up your own layout.
This place is not worth going out of your way to play but it is not as bad as the rating would imply. Definitely a worthy place to practice if you live nearby or somewhere an adventurous group can go to play safari golf, especially if the other courses around town are crowded.

Make up your own course here.

Pros: Wind Practice. Empty of golfers. Endless amount of possibilities. Lake Views. Military helicopters flying over.
Cons: No tees man. Not even worn path in the grass. Some woman laid a blanket down when I was trying to throw from #4 to #6 so I just turned and started throwing from some basket to some other basket. No problem ladies I don't have any tees anyway I don't know what I am doing.
Other Thoughts: We each are an architect of our own reality. A group or disc golf gang could easily turn this park into an awesome 9holes. They are numbered so you can figure something out for sure. I will go here again cause I liked to throw next to the lake without fear of losing discs.

Not too good
Pros: Practically no one there at the park. There is a very large open area there if you need a place to practice some long range throws, this would be the place for that. If you want to practice throwing in high wind, this is def the place for that too. View of of Mountain Creek Lake is okay.
Cons: There are no signs or distinct worn areas for tees. Have to pretty much make up your own course out of 9 baskets. Lots of broken beer bottles all over the park, it is in a pretty crap neighborhood. One basket had chains missing also.
Other Thoughts: I won't go back, I was just close to the area and went to check it out. I would only go there if you are setting some goal for yourself to play every course in Dallas or if you live near to the park.

What an experience
Pros: Great wind practice
Cons: Not a very great neighborhood
Lots of people wondering around
some baskets have no chains
no direction really mapped out
No tee pads
Other Thoughts: If it wasn't for someone on here posting how to play the course I wouldn't have had a clue how to navigate the place.
All you really need to know about this course is just look out low on my list of cons that tee pads and signs are. I honestly don't think this course is worth a play

Mountain Creek Rundown!!!
Pros: -Nice view of lake and nice park
-Great course for roller and/ wind practice and accuracy.
-Nice long shots
-Terrain is small trees and big sloping hills
-Nice cool breeze off the lake on warm days
Cons: -No pads....not even designated dirt pads
-Numerous baskets with missing chains...#2's basket actually had 2...2 CHAINS!!!
-Walking trails all throughout could lead to park traffic and human obsitcals.
-Extremely Hot in warm weather.
Other Thoughts: This course needs some work. Pads, signs, chains....the works.
They have enough room for what could be an 18, it just seems as though they didn't make great use of the land. Maybe their budget was to small.
All tees are played from the previous pin. (Tee #1 is #9's basket, #2 pad is #1's basket, etc)
Might have to walk around a bit to find your starting point, if you haven't been here.
If you're close, yeah, stop by. If you're more than 15 min. away, don't hesitate on not going.
Course was pretty weak overall, but with the right amount of effort and work, it could be a really nice little course.

What a waste!!
Pros: What an absolute waste! The park is amazing and the views of the lake are great as well making you get your hopes up for just enough time to break your heart. The park is taken care of very well for having no trashcans and for the traffic that is around here. There are baskets here and that is really about it.
Cons: The traffic is super heavy! The baskets are in poor shape and as said before there are no teepads. Watch out for dog poo.
Other Thoughts: I have never heard good things about this course and that is the reason I have never gone down here, the only reason I did today is I was super early for a round at Turner. I pulled into the parking lot and thought, "man it doesnt look bad at all, and just the park itself makes it look great.", then I got out and realized why I have hear no good things. I am really surprised they havent pulled it yet for someone getting hit and/ or no play. Safari golf is all this is good for and that is even a stretch. There are far better courses around here so dont waste your time!

All Pins/No Tees
Pros: This course is located in a beautiful park with a view of the lake. #5 has a great pin placement if you played it from basket #4. Hole #8 was a fun-tough tee shot if playing it from the right of #7 basket.
Cons: There are no tee pads. Some of the chains are missing from the baskets. There are many walking paths around this park with many walkers, even on weekdays in the middle of the day. There were no "on the course" trashcans or bathrooms.
Other Thoughts: I played this course and filled out the course info by playing on the right side of the previous basket to the next basket. This made for some good length hill and offered some unusual lines. The fun factor was nil. I won't be going back unless it is to enjoy some of the walking paths. Don't get me wrong; it is great that they put a course in this park and neighborhood. However, without a real starting point for each hole, a disc golf course, it does not make.
