Pros: *usually always well maintained
*very empty course, Ive played multiple time and usually see no more then 3 or 4 players on it
*concrete tees
*easy lay out to get around
*good parking area
*long walk=good exercise
*this is a course i take new players to so they get a feel of the game without too many obstacles, and allow them to take time to play
*baskets in good shape
*considering land area, they have put together a decent 18 hole course
*alot of open holes to let disc "fly"
Cons: *repition, variety does come until final few holes
*community center, so kids/families may be on holes 1, 15,18 (always seems to be somebody fishing by basket 18)
*can become challenging on windy days (really no wind block)
*fence along 16/17, there is a number to call to get disc back, but be prepared to wait on security guard
*almost never get to play 18th hole, as there is always someone around basket
Other Thoughts: great first course for new players
*does have a little creek that comes into play on several holes, but not deep enough to loose disc
---i saw on previous post that IOM, put it in, since its the course closes to home, would like to know how to get in contact maybe donate

Pros: This is an OK course at best, and there are alot of things that make it that way. The baskets are discatchers which are my favorite so thats a big bonus, thats about it. The concrete tees are nice except for the fact that they are very short. Very well kept course and very clean for the most part. There are a couple of very neat holes that make the game interesting and change it up a little. The elevation is a change and it used to the max! This course is very righty/lefty friendly due to it being pretty open and is beginner friendly for the most part as well. The pin placement makes you think on just about every hole, as there is some sort of OB/hazard nearby.
Cons: The tee signs or lack there of are a big hit! This makes navigation a kick in the shorts unless you have a map that is provided on here. There are a couple of "gimicky" holes out here that make it a little meh to me. For those that like not thinking about shots will not like it because almost every hole out there has OB within 30-40 of the pin. Some of that OB looks like it can be bad if the water is up or after a big rain. Crossing the creek over and over, not only for the hole but, to go to the next tee/hole gets very redundant and boring. That navigation looks like it could be nasty after a rain, as it was a little today and it hasnt rained in awhile. The water behind 18 is NASTY!
Other Thoughts: Not bad if you are in the area but there are way better courses nearby that are way more worthy of a visit. Not a bad course and I have seen well worse. I was hoping for a little more but was disappointed just a bit. Will probably hit this up again when Im in the area and have time to kill. The effort of the city to do this park is awesome, just would like a little more.

Pros: -challenging
-many chances for aces
-away from playground
-driving range
Cons: -tees are too short
-the federal center is a danger
-can loose your disc in the water
-hole 18 is very close to parked cars
Other Thoughts: I like most of the course but it is very difficult.
Hole number 17 is very hard to keep out of the federal center.(I usually skip it). There is also a driving range around the corner at the park.

Pros: A beautiful park with an 18 hole course that is done very well considering the amount of space that is av. Makes for a nice solid round on calm days and becomes very difficult when the wind is blowing, which is most of the time. Nice cages that are now all there and even a practice basket. It looks like Ft. Worth is making an effort to rebuild this park and they should, because it is beautiful! I've never left here thinking "What an awesome course", but I have a good time everytime out and feel challenged everytime I throw over the pond.
Cons: It is always windy here and the win usually blows toawaards the OBs and water sources, so before. If you take it lightly you will lose a disk or two. Two of the throws are actually over the large pond, which is challenging and fun, but also results in lost disks. They keep the grass pretty long, so I would not recommend it for our handicapped players or anyone who is physically challenged. A couple of the wholes requite climbing down stone steps. Watch out for other patrons of the park. Remember that it is a community park and is used for many different reasons.
Other Thoughts: Great course for a quick round in a beautiful park. Not the most challenging, but a couple of holes will challenge every level of player. Most importantly, I always have fun here.

Pros: The creek shots are challenging, baskets are nice and concret tees. There are champ tees on most.
The island hole is pretty cool
Cons: Pretty open and not much shade, bad summer course.
A few real places to lose disc.
Most holes are prettty boring
Other Thoughts: Not the best course but worth it if your in the area. I thought the layout was pretty self explanitory.

Pros: Course has a very long straight eternal fairway if that makes sense. The extension to 18 from original nine makes for some close tight play between holes. Lots of creekside play that will eat your disc. 13th hole is a challenge with a dog leg left approach from tee. Worth a try at least once if you are in the area.
Cons: Not mowed and after a heavy rain will be soggy and not very fun without good shoes. I would almost avoid it after a rain. More and longer Concrete tees would be nice all the way around.

Pros: This a really nice course with plenty of elevation throughout most of the course. There is a good mixture of basic short and long open shots. This is a good course for beginners learning the sport with multiple concrete tee pads for different skill levels. The baskets are new bright yellow DISCatchers that are visible from almost every tee. Hole #13 is a unique hole that you don't see on any other courses, you throw down in a creek to the basket and then drive back out of the creek. The course is never crowded so you will most likely have the whole course to yourself to get a nice, quiet round in. The course is really clean and very well maintained with trash cans and benches throughout most of the course. There is a practice basket at the beginning of the course to warm up before your round. Don't forget to check out the course map located by hole #1 because you will need it.
Cons: The biggest problem playing this course is navigation. There are only two tee signs on hole #1 and hole #2 and the rest your on your own. There are little hole numbers on some holes but not all are clearly marked. The best thing to do is print out a course map from this sight because you will probably need it. There is no shade on this course so be well prepared for these hot summer days with plenty of water and sunscreen.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a nice, easy course that is not to difficult to play. It is definitly a well laid back course to play and is worth the stop if your in the in the area.

Pros: Due to the course upgrade from 9 holes to 18, this is now an updated 18-hole review.

This is a great creek run course. You not only play along the creek and throw over a pond for at least half of this course, but you also play in and across the creek on some holes. The baskets are in great shape. There are multiple tees on most holes and right now they are a mix of concrete and grass, but will be upgraded to concrete soon. There are elevation holes, some great technical shots, and an island green #9. This course is a great challenge off the longs.
Cons: Some of the concrete pads are really too short to be of real run-up use. As there are currently temporary tee pads, look for little blue flags marking them. It is difficult to navigate your first time out, so get your copy of the course map at the community center. If you are there after or before hours they have it posted in the window by the front door. There are tons of people out fishing and hanging out all along the pond portion of this course (even on weekdays it is crowded). With that said, you may have to tone down a couple of shots due to human traffic. IF you lose a disc in the 2 "over the pond" shots, it is not likely you will get those back. There is an O.B. fence along the course that is not made for climbing. One part of the fence protects a police station and there is a military facility of some kind on the left side of hole #17. If you thrown one over this fence, the only way you are going to get it back, is to flag someone driving to work and ask them to get it for you. The people you flag down say it happens all the time. ;o)
Other Thoughts: The Fun Favtor here is rather good for me. I must say I loved playing right down in the creek, it was amazingly unique. A few of the holes were a real challenge and fun to navigate. The Island Green is of course a nice thrill. There are a few plain out in the open holes that didn't get me too excited and the non-players are plentiful. The area is not the best, but the police are patrolling and sitting in their vehicles at this community center much of the time. Everyone fishing and walking were really nice and were great about the "HEADS UP" when throwing over them. This course is designed well and I will be coming back here often!
