Creek becomes a river after a rain
Pros: Well laid out. 6 long holes over 420 ft. with 4 or 5 pars.
I liked the back 9 with long narrow fairways reminiscent of ball golf fairways. The long walking lanes down fairways were trimmed for easy walking.
Fun course & I'll be back when it cools off.
Cons: As reviewed, if you don't have a big arm, this course will challenge you with 6 holes over 420 ft. and 3 of those long holes are in the first 5 holes.
We played Saturday after a big rain swept across North texas. When this creek rises filling the banks and sink holes, it becomes a river with strong currents. The sloping fairways along the creek eat rolling discs like candy. Fairway 7 has a deceptive sinkhole to throw around and Hole 16 has a deep sink hole close to the basket.
The course could use those scrape blades courses like Alex Clark have.
When they say the course has a lot of poison ivy, they mean every time you step into the woods, YOU ARE ALREADY STANDING IN POISON IVY!!
Other Thoughts: I lost 2 discs and my bud is offering a $20 reward for his Dynamic Disc White Trespass (first Run).

Arcadia Park 2
Pros: Very large community park.
Great mixture of shots.
Great for distance and rollers.
Good teepads and baskets.
Water hazards throughout to punish bad shots.
Cons: Very Flat.
Not wind friendly.
Very busy at times. People popping out of nowhere.
Other Thoughts: Great course for a family many playgrounds throughout. Kids can play while you play golf.
Fun Course / Beginner Friendly
Pros: - Well maintained course in community park
- Lots of trash cans
- Fairly good mix of shots, but mostly wide open
- Fairly easy to navigate
Cons: - Nothing overly spectacular, just an average park disc golf course
Other Thoughts: I enjoyed playing this course but could see it getting boring quickly if this was my local course. Worth playing if you're already nearby.

Pros: Great variety of distance on this course. I feel like the pars listed on the signage is very generous. A few 4s and 5s that were 3s and 4s for me, and all I really have is a big arm. If you can throw far here, you will get an eagle. There are some ace runs as well (7 to name one) which is always fun. The course is pretty in Spring!
Cons: -A fair amount of water, which in this part of FW is home to a LOT of poisonous snakes- seriously be careful. On 17 (Rainbow pool) my wife saw a 5ft cottonmouth. Play it safe folks!
-If you don't have a big arm you may not like this course, but they do give you the benefit of the doubt with the pars.
Other Thoughts: I think that this is definitely worth playing if you live in DFW.

Great beginner/intermediate course
Pros: Very good mix of easy and difficult holes. Many are wide open for maximum distance, while a few require tight tunnel shots. Baskets and tees are in great shape.
Cons: During the summer evenings, many parents and their children confiscate holes #5 and #7 for soccer practice. On #5 it is easy to tee from a closer area and drop it to a part 3 or 4, but #7 it can be dangerous to throw due to the presence of children everywhere.
Holes #5 and #10 are missing signs. #10 tee box showing signs of wear.
Other Thoughts: Not much shade available for most holes, so prepare for the sun and heat.

Great long course!
Pros: - This course is extremely well maintained.
- The hole layout is good and has a decent amount of variance.
- The course is laid out intuitively.
Cons: - Not really a lot negative about this course.
- It wouldn't hurt my feelings if occasionally they changed the pin location, but beggars can't be choosers.
Other Thoughts: This is an absolute must play in DFW!

Pros: Variety of shots and holes. Good use of the trees and water.
Cons: Soccer fields on 2 holes ruins the course. How can you play with people on the fairway. Holes 4 and 5 are boring.
Other Thoughts: move holes by the soccer fields somewhere else.

Pros: It's a solid course, a good mix of par 4's and 5's, though I question if some should actually be those. It was well groomed, flowed GREAT, and the wind changes based on where you are located in the course, it adds to the difficulty which is much needed.
Favorite things about the course:
1. Well maintained.
2. Easy to follow.
3. Easy to read teesigns.
4. All tee's are concrete.
5. Difficulty changes through out the course.
6. I love being able to stretch out my arm, and throw some bombs.
Cons: Not a lot of cons, but there are some noteworthy things that should be noted.
1. It's not too difficult.
2. Some of the water hazards are hard to get to if you shank a disc, holes 16-18 beware.
3. There's a park pretty close to one of the holes, an errant shot could really hurt someone.
4. Soccer fields scattered around, wasn't an issue when I played, but could pose an issue on the weekend or the afternoon.
5. Not many other disc golfers.
Other Thoughts: It's a sweet course, I will play it again. I don't think it deserves much over a 3. It's average based on what I've played. It's worth the drive from south ft. worth. I'll come back when my arm is ready for the bomb shots. And the big ol tomahawk on 12. :D

Pros: Well groomed and good signage. Has some good opportunities to really grip it and rip it.
Cons: Flatter than Kansas. Also has about the same # of trees as Kansas. But the trees that are there are well used.
Other Thoughts: Overall a good course, beginner friendly while still offering a good amount of difficulty and challenge to more advanced players.
