Pros: The holes were very well spaced out. Nice hole lengths and mix between left and right curves to the basket. Nice concrete tees and variety of trees vs no trees.
Cons: Hole 1 hard to find at first. The distances or numbers and location of all the baskets are not marked well on the tee. If you throw in water, i would imagine it is basically impossible to get the disc back.
Other Thoughts: Other than it being pretty dry and sandy/rocky, very nice course. Sometimes you have to wait a little for cars to drive by because a few holes are pretty close to the drive, but an overall fun course.

The Course got a Wax Job....in a good way
Pros: This past year the City of Abilene has cleared the park's creek that runs throughout most of the course. Pesky brush and dead trees were removed giving the course a new, clean, makeover look. The City also put in dual short and long and REVERSED cement tee pads which is awesome and lengthens the course with the space provided. With little traffic through the park, anytime of day is a good time to get a round in as it is a quite and clean park.
Cons: With the new clearing, the park can almost play against you. The slopes are vicious on 4 holes with no back stop like before, giving it a new degree of difficulty. With new tee signs in the works, replacing the warped wooden sign is next on the clubs list of to-dos.

Challenging. Disc Loss Expected
Pros: The course provides a lot of interesting challenges with varying elevations, water (which affects at least four holes), mandos, narrow holes, and different angles. Whoever laid it out was definitely thinking of how to make a good disc golf course, and not how to fit as many holes in an area as possible.
Cons: If you go OB, which is very likely with the small spaces to play around every basket, you will almost certainly lose your disc. Also, some of the holes are not as well marked as others, but anyone could figure out the layout.
Other Thoughts: I gave it a 4.0 rating, just because of how challenging it is. It is definitely the most challenging course in Abilene, and probably one of the most challenging in all of West Texas. Possible Improvements: more holes and updating the signage on a couple tees. Beware: beginners WILL lose discs. Wait to play this one until you've gotten down your accuracy. Power will not help as much here.
