Never knew this course was so close to the airport!
Pros: Good practice course
Makes good use of the land given
Close to the airport
Fence has openings in case disc flies over it
9 holes play fast, good to ay twice for 18 hole scores
Cons: Not much to this course (Reasonable: 2.0)
Fence on other side of creek (west) limits future exansion of course.
9 holes is a con without 2 pins/tees.
Natural tees are rough.
Other Thoughts: South side of course has some space on other side of creek for additional holes in future. By cleaning out the brush over there and adding a small bridge to cross over, I see room for at least 3 more holes (for whatever it's worth). Not sure how much room is over there, but maybe enough for 9 more holes in the future. 18 hole courses attract more players than 9 hole courses.
Is a bad course better than no course?

Pros: Near to the airport. Well maintained.
Cons: Not many pros to come up with. This course just isn't interesting. Barely any trees, just a lot of throwing across a field. The teepads also aren't marked very well, and the teepads themselves are just worn out spots in the dirt.
Other Thoughts: Somebody went to some trouble to get this course in, so we should be thankful it's there. It's a playable course, and if you want to practice your driving and are near DFW, I guess it can get the job done.But hit up Bear Creek or Fritz while you're here.

Leaves something to be desired
4 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Good for beginners. Some elevation change. It would be extremely hard to lose a disc here. The fact that I had to think for 15 minutes before coming up with ANY pros is telling.
Cons: Worst teepads ever. They are deeply-cracked dirt pits that are mud holes when wet. No signage except for a stick with a number on it on 4 of the 9 holes. Poor use of the land and the creek that surrounds it. Wide open with very few trees...which im sure could present a challenge if there were strong winds. This is the second worse DG course I have ever played (Springfield park holds the #1 spot). 9 hole courses always carry less interest than full 18 hole courses. No practice basket. Tough to find tees. You could easily twist an ankle (or even break an ankle) on the ridiculous mud pits they call tees. The holes are all crammed into a small space, so smashing your disc into another person is a serious possibility.
Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend skipping this course...even if it is very close to you. If you absolutely have to play this course, be aware of a few things. To start, the first "teepad" is right by the big wooden sign at the very front by the parking lot and the street. I mention this BC I hear that many people play the wrong tees/baskets, etc. I could understand with the horrible signage how this could be confusing. The tees then go back and forth before wrapping around the back end of the park and coming up by the fence back towards the parking lot. There are woods, a creek, and a lot of brush surrounding the park which would make for interesting challenges if designed properly...so its a shame they aren't used at all. Be careful to not grip lock your drive or throw too far to the right on #1 or it will be in traffic on the road.
Your best move is to just skip this course.

Needs some trees planted
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: This course uses what is available as best it can. There are a few uphill shots and a couple of downhill shots too.
What few trees are present are incorporated well.
Rounds should play quickly here and there is a good mix of moderate length and longer holes too.
This is a course that a beginner might enjoy and the threat of losing a disc is minimal here.
Hole 9 was the best hole IMO.
Cons: 4's and 8's tee stake was missing, however just look for the dirt area that looks like a tee box.
The grass could be long at times.
No trash cans or benches, not that you would need to sit down but that option is still nice.
The course can get swampy after a heavy rain and many of the tees are showing signs of rutting, and might be slick after a hard rain.
Wind will be a factor here and in the summer months it could get hot here because of lack of shade.
My main con with this course is the lack of obstacles to shape lines and make for fun shots. Its mainly just a wide open field with baskets and this makes for boring discing in my opinion.
Other Thoughts: If you are in a hurry and want to play a quick round then this would be a good course to do it on. This course was getting some play upon my visit so some players seem to be enjoying it. For my tastes I think the planting of some trees to shape lines would help spice things up here. Also the addition of at least the distances on the tee stakes would be an improvement. If you are looking for a place to work on your open shots then hit this course up. If you like a more technical course or a course that makes you shape lines then you will want to hit up another course in the area.

Decent for a quick round.
Good baskets considering the out of the way course.
Well maintained considering location.
Good for working on forehand and backhand.
Cons: Need signage.
Teepads should be added considering wear of the course.
Not much of a challenge.
Other Thoughts: Would be a good little course with a little work.
Needs 2 tee pads.

Pros: -There is a port-a-potty.
Cons: -30+mph winds daily.
-All totally straight shots.
-The "tee pads" resemble pre-dug graves.
-Random condoms hanging on the fence.
Other Thoughts: Who could ask for more? Seriously, not much to see here folks.
PS- If you think your spouse is cheating on you, check the parking lot of this place- it is full of middle aged folks making out/banging like 16 year olds when mom isn't home.

warm up/ lunch break
5 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -clean, well maintained
-if you lose a disc, well you messed up real bad
-hole 1 is semi-exciting...
-if you're into easy birdies, well theres 9 in a row right here at WO. this is really a con but whatever
Cons: -teeboxes are embarassing, essentially ruts, dont break an ankle.
-only 9 holes and quite short
-few trees means boredome
-can be played with a putter only
-hard to figure out where to go the first time you go
Other Thoughts: wo isnt aweful but its not great. i use it as a warmup for better courses.I used to play here on lunch break as its hardly ever crowded (wonder why). i could finish in 30 min solo. dont go out of your way to play here if youre visiting, if you do you're wasting your time

No frills course
5 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -no crowds, never waiting at a tee to throw
-open holes good for testing out new discs
-easy to run through twice for a very quick 18 hole round
-gentle elevation shots
-generally well maintained. Ive never seen trash lying around and fields are usually mowed
-one or two disc round friendly
-very unlikely to loose a disc (although it is possible)
Cons: -non-technical, wont need many discs or different throws
-poor (non-existant) hole signs
-dirt teepads are pretty worn
-wide open course means wind can play a factor
-lack of any real hole design can seem pretty boring
Other Thoughts: Nothing outstanding at this course but i like to go because it is so close to me. No super long holes or super short ones, every hole is kind of middle or the road. Definately a course where you can score par or even under par. In all the times ive played here ive only seen a few other dgers on the course. I like to use this as my practice course. A good place to take out a new disc or work on technique. Signs on each hole for distance and such would be great. And kudos to whomever put those posts in the ground to mark the teepads. I remember my first time there i just guessed at where a couple of the tees were. I wouldnt go out of my way to play here, but its close and it gets the job done.

Tucked in by the side of DFW
Pros: - Good central location near DFW Airport
- Park appears to be primarily developed as a disc golf course, no playground equipment
- OB raises the challenge a bit (brushy creek, airport fence)
- Uses a little bit of elevation (particularly #1 and #2)
- Not a very busy course
- Easy to get in a quick round
- Generally the design makes use of the available land
Cons: - No course map on-site
- Without a map, could be a little confusing in a couple places
- Poor signage (a tall stake with a number on it)
- Dirt tee pads are rutted a bit, and are nothing more than worn-in places in the grass
- Not a lot of challenge to be had; a few holes are straight shots across the field
- Throwing OB, especially over the airport fence, likely means you've lost your disc
- For some reason a picnic table is present and a little uncomfortably close to the baskets on #2 and #9
Other Thoughts: - No real obvious "signature" holes, but the layout is far from poorly-designed.
- Easy to get creative and make up your own layout/safari
This is a little nine-hole course tucked into a piece of land literally next to DFW airport grounds. The field being used is not large, but the course likely is making the best use of the available land. There are a few trees scattered throughout, which are used in the layout fairly well, and the perimeter is wooded. Overall, though, this would be considered fairly open. Stepping up the tee pads to something a bit better would be nice, but they're not horrible. I could see bringing a beginner out here and not overwhelming them too badly. The hole distances are above pitch-putt-type distances, but there's not much in the way of bomber holes here. Overall this is a very playable, if not extremely challenging or memorable course. It's probably not worth going too far out of your way to try with so many other courses in DFW, but a nice, quick round can be had here.

Pros: Nice little course close to the airport. Baskets are in good shape and course is pretty open, with well maintained grass.
Cons: Natural teepads, no signage, hard to follow the course layout. No trash cans or restrooms
Other Thoughts: I would like teepads and some kind of signage to at least know where the holes start.
