Pros: -The course covers the whole park which is very well taken care of.
-It's a pretty park and the course flows very well from basket to tee to basket to tee, etc.
-The maps at the tees were very useful.
-It's usually very empty. This park doesn't get very much attention.
Cons: -Hole #2 goes through a soccer field! This can get a little tricky if there's soccer practice going on.
-The sign on hole #1 was upside down (I'll try to upload a picture after this review)
-The baskets weren't exactly sticking straight up out of the ground...rather they were on an angle.
-Most of the holes require you to go over walking paths which means that people often can be in the way.
-It's very apparent that the disc golf course was added waaaaaay after the park was completed. As said, some of the holes go over soccer fields and hole #8 even goes over a playground!
-I had no way of knowing where to tee off from. All there are at the tees are maps of the hole and it just says "Be sure to stand behind this sign when teeing off".
Other Thoughts: I understand that El Paso is in the middle of no where, and it's great that they put in an effort to attract the disc golf community, but this course just doesn't cut it. If you're in the area, I'd drive to Peoria or Normal to play the better courses there. But while you're here...you could always check out the Kappa Kabana. ;)

This picture basically sums up the whole course:
Basket 9 in the middle, Basket 8 on the right along with hole 9 tee, and Basket 3 in far left background.
