Pros: I loved the driving range.. (located to the far right of #7 Tee Pad) .. was a great place to warm up. Driving range rated up to 400'.

Layout was awesome.. play over crisscrossing creeks about 3' wide for the first 3 pins. Then end up in the wooded area by pin 8 through 16.

Restroom onsite and entire area was kept mowed unless you end up in the rough lol..

Cons: Tee signage could be a lot better! I ended up throwing at wrong pin on #8 Tee.. all the white pads had missing pin direction. Had to check the Blue tee pads for pin placement before going to the white tee pads.
Other Thoughts: Would most definitely go back when in the area again.

Pros: The course was great due to the fact that it was challenging with a good mixture of long, short, technical, doglegs and hazardous holes. One of my favorite elements was the risk/reward holes. The course had a lot of space but did not feel overly long due to the natural flow of the well-manicured terrain. Tee pads were spacious and signs were helpful as well. Also i loved the driving range! Bathrooms at hole one were nice as well with covered picnic tables.
Cons: Some signs were missing and neighbors yards could be problematic due to signs telling golfers to under no circumstances retrieve discs... also some of the tee pads were not engineered to stay dry during wetter times of the year.
Other Thoughts: Which brings me to the name of this review... The area used for the park is along a river that serves as drainage for the higher surrounding areas. Multiple creeks cross the course in route to said river. When it rains this park turns into an entirely different animal. the mud is thick deep and sticky. People with walking challenges should avoid the days following rain. Normal creek crossings are not crossable and even small bridges can be washed out. The areas around the baskets that do not have grass on some holes can also be bad. And some tees on the back 9 become submerged. Did i mention the mud?

 Well Maintained, Great Flow

Pros: Very well maintained. Great flow from hole to hole. Concrete pads. Long and short pads at each hole. Practice lanes with distance markers :-)
Cons: Relatively straight shots and feew elevation changes so not overly challenging. Can get crowded. Looks like it could get farily muddy, but the trails are rocky in the back nine to assist with this.
Other Thoughts: Overall a very nice course. Would happily go back.

Pros: Long and short tees to keep everyone happy!
Driving range!
Concrete tees!
Water fountain!
Bathrooms!
New and improved drainage!
Trash cans!
City is active in in maintaining it, cutting down dead trees and making improvements.

*Update* city is putting down mulch around baskets and problematic muddy areas.
Cons: The rock fairway on the back 9
They don't empty the trash cans enough.


*UPDATE* Hole 16's basket has been removed due to complaints. Can play from 16 tee bad to holes 7 basket as replacement.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great course and they take care of it very well and with the combination of short/long tees, good basket locations, and just enough trees and OB make this course challenging and fun! It is a must play if you are in the area! Below is a short description of all the holes.

1 Basket straight ahead to the left. Trees to the left and right from the tee with a small creek running from the left side towards the front of the hole.

2 Basket straight straight forward with trees guarding most lines about 3/4 down and a small OB creek running to nearly left of center.

3 Straight open shot with creek running horizontal through its 3/4 down.

4 Open shot with large creek to the left.

5 Tree hangs over right in front of the tee forcing you to throw low onto a narrow fairway, large creek to the left and to small pounds to the right during parts of the year...they dry up in the summer.

6 Short tunnel shot through some tree.

7 The longest hole by far on the course, big arm hole, straight shot, large creek to the left.

8 Straight forward, basket tucked into a pocket of trees to the left.

9 Straight forward with the basket to the left under some trees.

10 Basket straight to the right by some trees with a small ob creek behind it.

11 Short hole needing a small hyzer curve, very acable

12 Very cool hole requiring a nice S throw to get to a basket guarded by trees.

13 straight shot with trees to the left and right, good ace run

14 Straight shot under a tree canopy with basket to the left in small clearing

15 Cannot see the basket from tee, it follows the tree line to the left, need a big hyzer.

16 This is a real fun hole, shoot up a small hill with a bunch of trees blocking most long lines towards a basket the is in the open on the other side of the trees. If you happen to throw in grandmas backyard just knock, nice people. *UPDATE* this basket has been removed, play from tee pad as normal to hole 7's basket just be courteous to people playing hole 7.

17 & 18 are both straight open no tree big arm holes (if from longs) with a big creek to the left of both.

Can play from basket 18 to basket 4 for tie-breaker or bonus hole.

 Just Plain Fun

Pros: Very easy to navigate even for the 1st timers, and from either teepad.
Well marked concrete teepads for both blue and white tees.
Water comes into play, however during dry summer not really an issue.
Holes 8-14 is in woods, however they are pretty open and easy to drop your score on these holes.
Nice pavillion with lots of tables.
Nice small playground for kiddos.
Lots of shade.
Driving range is a cool touch.
Cons: Not sure all of the measurements are correct. I normally throw max 315-330, and on 8 it states 375 from the white tee. I overthrew the basket on both rounds. Some of the others seem off by a bit, but I was not walking around with a measuring device either.
Parking was fine, however I can see how this could be an issue on busy days.
Scary to wonder how bad this place can flood during rains. There is a flood gauge between 4-5 that shows 6 feet depth.
Other Thoughts: Fun course. I played pushing my kids in a double jogger and flew through the course. Played for 30 min at playground, then played another round.
Easy to get to, great park, and some really friendly players there. Fun times

Mix of trees and open shots
Water on several holes
Restrooms and water fountain
Plenty of parking

Pros: This is a clean and safe park that is well maintained by the city parks dept.Every hole is complete with short and long tees along with discatcher baskets and good signage as well.

There are plenty of good ace opportunities if you can throw it straight

The course flows easily enough,but there is a map located on the bulletin board near the parking lot.
Restrooms and water fountain are located at the picnic pavilion between the parking and hole #1( you will pass these and the bulletin board on the way to the first tee)
The driving range next to #7 is a great and unique feature that makes this course stand out a little
Cons: Almost every hole can be reached with a straight flat shot, the longs change this a little but mostly add just length.
If it has rained recently forget about it.At least 75% of the course turns to mud and puddles.

In the summer and fall the mosquitoes are terrible due to all the standing water around the trees along the back nine,
Other Thoughts: Holes 4,5,7,17,18 all border the creek. It can get pretty windy on the more open front nine but the trees keep it calm on the back

There are two large parking lots(and a few spaces near the first holes) parking can get bad due to the popularity of this course by DGers and non-golfers alike.

#2's basket doubles as a practice basket

Pros:
The city of Mesquite continues to install new courses with high quality equipment. Nice large sized concrete tees on both long and short tee pads. Sweet dual chain Discatcher Pro baskets are easy to see from a distance. Tee signs include an individual map of each hole and are located on high visibility yellow posts. The course boasts a nice variety of lefty vs. righty holes. The maintenance of this course is evident by the grounds conditions, there was minimal trash and wood chips had been placed down over muddy areas. Recently installed foot bridges make crossing the creek much easier. The Blue tee on #5 is a great tricky hole for RHBH... throw the risky big anny and risk the creek, or a forehand flick, or run the gauntlet of trees. Restrooms and water fountain by parking lot at Hole #1.
Cons:
No significant elevation in play. The distance posted for hole #10 is not accurate the basket is much closer than the listed ~400'. Perhaps the basket was moved up after the signs were printed to minimize conflicts with #11 tee pads. Several of the baskets are too close to the subsequent tee boxes such that they endanger players teeing off on the next hole. There is a creek that will eat some discs for bad throws on #7, #17, and #18 and to a lesser (or shallower) degree on #4 and #5. Basket #2 is pretty close to a children's playground so be wary of throws in that area. Parking lots are somewhat small and could fill on busy days.
Other Thoughts:
I played on a week night and the course was really busy with a mixture of casual and serious players. I was playing solo and had no problems playing through several groups. This was a fun course to play and I would easily play it again if I was in the area. Props to Mesquite, keep up the good work!
