Pros: Very easy to follow the course. There are signs at every box and course map at the start of the course. Multiple tee boxes on most holes. Great for trying out new discs and different throw types.
Cons: Very wide open. Not many trees to block any wind or sun. No elevation change to speak of. People often take their dogs out to the course and leave behind their waste so watch out on fairways and even on some greens. In the underbrush be sure to look out for poison ivy and oak.
Other Thoughts: Now that spring is here there are quite a few snakes out and about the course. I went just the other day and left a disc in the water due to a 4 ft. snake swimming around in the creek at 10 basket section and my buddy walked into a snake while searching in the underbrush along the creek by the 14 fairway.

Pros: - Wide Open
- Pretty Flat
- Can take some chances
- Many long drives
- Only thing at park is disc golf
- Creek is only main place to lose a disc
Cons: - No trees to block wind, makes it hard on windy days
- Can get pretty torn up if you do not throw in the fairway
- Not very scenic
Other Thoughts: I have only been playing for a few weeks, but have played this course probably three times a week. The first few holes are very good to test your throws and new discs on. This course is much easier for beginners than Lion's Park in Temple, but it isn't as scenic.

Pros: The distance variety on this course is very impressive with ranges from 150' up to the mid 800's. There are alot of par 4's.

There are nice long concrete tee pads on every hole.

There is a sign at EVERY tee with hole #, distance, and par. There is also a bulletin board at the start with a large map of the course.

Both pro and amatuer tees increases the already high variety of shots and distances. The biggest of arms will be challenged and the wimpiest will make at least one birdie (my wife made three).

The John Houck design means that every hole is unique and challenging. Even though it is flat and lightly wooded, the use of a winding creek, distance, and some well placed trees makes this an excellent course.
Cons: There's not much shade so mid-day play in the summer will be tough.

If you don't land in the fairway you may have to deal with thorny bushes and trees.

This course doesn't have quite as much scenic beauty, with mature trees and hilly terrain, as Lion's Park.
Other Thoughts: I actually slightly prefer this course to Lion's Park. The residents of temple are lucky to have such great courses.

 Home Course # 1

Pros: Designed by John Houck. A fun course that you can develop your arm at. Good long open holes but lots of hazards. Short boxes and "Birdie Alley" fun for beginners who can stay on the fairways.
Cons: Trees that bite, and a mean creek.
Other Thoughts: We have relocated hole # 1 due to the new Family Aquatic Center which is being built. This added a little more to the overall length of the course. We also made 2 tee boxes for this hole.

Pros: The course is very easy to find and well kept. All of the holes have cement tees and a majority of the holes have 2 tee boxes. There are signs at each tee box to give you a good idea of where you are throwing to since some of the holes are "blind." Whether you throw backhand or forehand, you will be challenged with a myriad of shots. There are many holes that allow you to explode on your drive but will challenge your approach and putting skills. The part of town this course is in is very quite, laid back, and developing. The course begins and ends at the parking lot. Trash cans are spread throughout the course so litter is at a minimum.
Cons: There are trees throughout the course but since a majority of the holes are wide open, take your sun screen...you WILL get baked. There is also a creek that runs through the entire course. About 3-4 holes require you to shoot over water, by water, or along a barbed wire fence line. Losing discs is very easy here if you are not a seasoned player. If you don't like having your legs scratched all to hell while looking for a disc WEAR PANTS! The underbrush here is lethal! Poison ivy, oak, and sumac are present. Not to mention that there are some BIG mesquite bushes and they have needle like thorns that have no problem passing through any clothing...including souls of shoes!! Very little variation in elevation. It's pretty much a completely flat course. Not a very forgiving "beginners" course since all but 2-3 holes have some sort of water hazard in them.
Other Thoughts: I play this course on a weekly basis will will continue to do so. I enjoy the long and short game this course provides. There is a cement walking trail that cuts through the course so waiting for pedestrians does happen some times.
