Pros: -The just got some larger T-pads for most of the back nine.
-Shot variety is great...long and short, wide open and treed, ups and downs, lefts and rights
-Lots of elevations change
-Not huge hole waits if there are any.
-Plenty of "big-arm" holes
-Plenty of finesse holes
-Numerous pin placements per hole
-Clean course and well kept
-Long course
-Right smack dab in the middle of the metroplex
-Nice surrounding park area...
Cons: -One of the worst for mud if it's rained in the week prior
-If you don't like playing in the wind, it can be really window out there.
-Might run in to some jogers or dog walkers being that there is a walkin' path cut through some of the course.
Other Thoughts: Another great course right in the middle of DFW. Everyone should get to this course.

Both the front and back nine are loaded with big elevation changes and different types of shots. Mostly spotty trees in long fairway with elevation ups and downs.

Should be played by everyone...totally worth a drive and it's a nice change from the usuall local courses.

Pros: varied terrain and elevation changes with a good mix of long and short, open and wooded holes. Quality tee pads and disc catchers- multiple pin placements and nice people playing the course
Cons: Only 18 holes, I wish there were more
Other Thoughts: This is one of the best courses in Texas and Dallas. If you are in the Dallas area looking for a unique course to play, this is one to put on your list.
**After Hole 12, you can walk across the street to the convenience store and get a gatorade or buy discs, I'm just sayin... it can get hot so put some cash in your bag.

Pros: The terrain makes for a hiking experience on holes 4-7.
Cons: Holes 12-15 have almost no hazards. Very busy.
Other Thoughts: This course holds too many tournaments which shut down the course. It is difficult playing 18 on the weekend.

Pros: Lovely park setting with plenty of amenities. Very nice memorial to veterns here. The course is very well layed out with maximum use of elevation changes available. There is an excelent mixture of challenges here. Some long holes, some short, uphill and down hill drives. You be required to move your disc both hyser and anhyser, I really enjoyed the challenge. There were multiple lines to most of the holes. The baskets while old were in remarkedly good shape and caught my discs very well. While some of the walk/running trails did wind thru parts of the course this did not pose a problem. The park was clean, well maintained and the locals were very helpfull / friendly.
Cons: The tee signs were in very poor shape. This made it very difficult to find my way around the course. A local guide or map would help greatly.
A few more trash cans and benches might be nice, but are not a big problem. The signs are the real opetunity here and would take this course from very good to great in my opinion.
Other Thoughts: All in all this is a fun course to play and I would like to come back the next time I am in town. I do not live in arrid area so the cactus and scrub trees added a lot of fun and visual intrest for me.
It was very windy the afternoon I played and that really put some teeth into the course.

Pros: This course can make you an elevation pro.
Decently maintained.

Cons: This course lacks the amount of technical shots that several courses in the area seem to have.
Beginners may find it difficult to navigate.
The walk can be brutal if you bring cheap shoes.
Other Thoughts: Water + Sunscreen a must, of course.

Pros: 1. The elevation changes on this course are unmatched in the area!
2. All the shots in your bag will be used.
3. A perfect blend of ace run's, birdie opportunities, and tough par's.
4. One of the best maintained courses that I regularly play on!
5. Concrete Tee's on every hole, plus short tee's on every hole as well!
6. Though it might be hard to find your way around the first time, just ask a local. (Most of 'em are pretty cool.)
7. Different pin positions for every hole! They are moved on occasion.
Cons: 1. The tee signs are in very bad condition, and some of the distances on them are just wrong.
2. It can be hard to navigate around the course for first-timers.
3. As most have said before, it is very hot in the Summer, so bring water!
4. There's not too much seating around the tee's.
Other Thoughts: This is an awesome course! It is my home course and I'm still not tired of playing it after the 200+ time! This is by far on of the best courses in the area and is worth a look! Have fun out there!

Pros: Really great course that is always fun to go to. The pads are good and most of the baskets are good even for being old. Lots of different lines on most holes that allow for you to use your imagination. There are alot of open holes with some "tight" holes sprinkled in. This course favors a big arm for the most part but there is a mix of some shorties as well. There is some sweet elevation that is used well throughout the park too. Really a great place to play and scores can vary round to round. Probably in top 3 in the area! Course always seems to be in good shape as well.
Cons: Can get VERY hot! Can get hard to navigate at times for a first timer. The park can get busy with players on the weekend and there are other park goers towards the back that can get in the way and not seem to know you exist. The wak can get tough at times as well.
Other Thoughts: Bring lots of water and suntan lotion during the summer. Have a good pair of shoes and make sure they are comfortable.

Pros: Great tees.Good combination of long,short.open and tight holes.Great use of elevation except for the desert holes.Great course to get your exercise.
Cons: The desert holes could have been laid out better IMO.This can lead to a disc being lost even when thrown on line.

Some of the park locals don't care they're standing between you and the basket,LOL

Some of the holes are little bland and can use new positions.Not necessarily longer just better.
Other Thoughts: A great course that continues to attract player from the region.Considered by many to be in the top ten metroplex courses.Well worth the visit and there is plenty of things to do after your round.
