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.

-many chances for aces
-away from playground
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: -Some very difficult pin positions (#13)
-Water comes into play on a few holes
-Great ace opportunities
-Some great chances to air out some bombs
-Hole 9 - Island green!
Cons: -In a park that seems to be very busy with non disc golfers on the weekends
-Lots of poison ivy on 13-14 path
-Water is deeeeeeep
Other Thoughts: Really well planned course. The natural terrain comes in to play quite often. Creek comes into play on quite a few holes. Bring some long pants if you are allergic to poison ivy and are not accurate with your drives. Print out the map on here if you are going to help guide your way. Some boxes kinda hide from ya.

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.

Don't be so hard on this place
Pros: This place is the spot if you need to get a quick fix. There is hardly ever any one out here. This makes this one of my more frequented spots.
I know it is not that challenging to some because there are no trees, but go try to play it in the WIND!!!!!! It's set up like a links course, like in regular Golf. There are no trees but you battle winds, but there are a few holes, mainly on the back, that bring trees and a bit of elevation into play.
I feel that Ft Worth will keep improving this place, and it will become a more popular disc site.
BTW, played yesterday glad to see the baskets on 2 and 4 back!!!!!! Although too bad about the gripey fisherman, I liked 18 over the water!!!!!
Cons: *Not alot of trees
*Can get monotinous (I reccomend swithching tee boxes on different holes, you know, to mix it up)
*Holds water after BIG rains
*Can gobble up discs with water and OB
*No maps and signs incomplete (this isn't a big deal to me, seeing as how I play here 2 or 3 times a week. I do, however, see how it could be tough for a newbie to navigate around)
Other Thoughts: All in all, I enjoy playing here. Like I said you can go 45 minutes before dusk and finish, well as long as you don't play a 5 or 6 some!!!
Also seems to have good locals, I guess I am one of 'em, I had lost a disc a few weeks back and the other day got a call from the guy who found it. Thanks for getting my Starfire back to me!!! I always return to places where there are good people!!!!

Pros: -All holes have concrete pads...most have a set of them
-Makes decent use of hill side, creek, pond, and the few trees
-"island simulated" hole is a pretty good idea
-Nice park in general
-Quiet and quick round being not many play there.
-"battle of the birdies" course on a good day
Cons: -No shade when it's hot out.
-Trees are pretty spotty
-All Year round...look out for poison ivy near the creek. Lots of it!!!
-Pretty squishy after a rain.
-Un-navigatable if you don't have a map.
-Park-goers to come in to play with the fishing and trail.
Other Thoughts: Over all, it's a decent course. Used to be only 9 holes, but they made decent use of a long hillside and creek. There aren't a lot of trees, again, but if you're lookin' for a decent wind practice course, this is it.
I play it a lot, especially when you need a break from Z Boaz. Makes for a good round.
Go play it. Some like it, some don't. I do. Not the most challenging, but worth a 20 min drive or so.

Pros: does make use of the few Trees, creek and pond. It is by no means a pitch and putt course.
#18 is the signature hole
#16 is pretty good from the Pro tee too
#15 is a good hole
Island hole for #9
Benches on most of the holes.
Cons: No tee Signs on many of the holes, however most do have at least spray paint on the tee boxes.
2 baskets (#2, #4) missing
A map is the only way I figured out the layout.
Other Thoughts: Not all that bad of a course for Texas. It does make use of the one hill, the few trees, and two shots over the pond.
However, because 2 of the baskets are missing, I don't think I will be playing this course again.

A Change of Pace
Pros: Close to HWY
Lots of Ace Runs
Cons: Small Tee Boxes
Some Poorly Designed Holes
Wierdos Fishing on Hole 18
Walking Path is in Play
Other Thoughts: It's a good place to play if your tired of everywhere else. Seems to always be windy. Not a lot of trees to block wind.
