Pros: This course combines some unique features. Open shots, wooded shots, elevation going up, elevation going down, and is the only course in Tyler that has true water hazards. You'll have the opportunity to throw over water as well as the chance to shoot at a basket on a peninsula.

The course is kept up nicely and makes for a nice round.
Cons: The course could use some additional signs to direct you to the next tee. I walked in a circle more than once...the worst of which was trying to find hole 12. Hole 12 is located by a little house...not down the walking path.

The course looses some of it's natural feel and flow as it weaves around baseball fields and walking trails.
Other Thoughts: If you have a strong craving for water holes, this is the only place in Tyler you'll get it. However, in total, it is a step behind the Lindsey park courses.

Pros: Gorgeous park and very well maintained. Three or four elevation shots and a few water holes where you have to make some good shots. Good mid-range course where you can work on finesse. Nice place to bring family to picnic and also play a round.
Cons: Not well marked - hard to find hole 12 from number 11 off of the hill especially. The course does not flow terribly well. I can see how it could be pretty busy with other sports and walkers here (not on the morning I visited).
Other Thoughts: Enjoyable course, but choose the Lindsey Park courses first if you're short on time.

BTW - hole 12 is on the other side of the entry house with the porch.

Pros: This course is lots of fun. Look out for the lake, be ready to risk a disc in the water. It's well maintained. You have some technical throws, but not many.
Cons: Don't play mid morning on a Saturday. You will have cars and soccer players in some parts of the course. Not a good place to learn dg as the water hazard can cost. =)
Other Thoughts: It's definitely worth playing, but if you are in Tyler for a short while and can only play one course I'd go to UT Tyler or Lindsey Park.
