Pros: Challenging holes. Nice clean park. Great location. Lots of ace runs. Plenty of parking around the course.
Cons: Not a good place when people want to have a picinic lunch right in the fairway. Some of the park visitors have no clue of what is going on.

How Far Can You Sling One?
Pros: This is a fantastic course with lots of tunnel type drives and accuracy shots. The woods were used to perfection. The course is not overly challenging but fun just the same. They have put in a excellent baskets and cement tee pads. The signs are excellent and the layout of the entire course is challenging. This course even boasts a rarity, a driving range. It is well marked and logically placed next to the parking lot. The course is so well maintained that wood chips have even been dispersed to help control the mud after a rain.
Cons: There is little to complain about at this place. There was no sign of a restroom. There is very little elevation on the course.
Other Thoughts: The fun factor was great. The holes were fun and the course was a blast even as most of the course was flat. I will most certainly be going back there. It was a real treat to play.

Well worth the drive from Wylie
Pros: As a beginner I really enjoyed playing this course. The baskets are well marked and visible from the tee. There are just enough trees on some holes to help you work on your skills, not a lot of brushy woods like other courses. This course will make you think about your approach. Other holes allow for long open drives with a few water hazards.
Cons: Course gets muddy after a good rain. Some signs are not quite accurate

Mesquite keeps on winning
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.
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.
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!

Pros: The trees are fun on the first few holes, the course is well laid out and well maintained. The back nine is very challenging. Nice tees and baskets, and there is a driving range which is cool.
Cons: The river will eat your discs, the course is dangerous in the wind because of this.
Other Thoughts: We played with a large group and there were a lot of one and two groups. Which made us feel a bit rushed , but everyone was cool and helpful with directions. Good playground for the kids and nice bathrooms.

Pros: Good tee signs, baskets, and pads!! Pleanty of trash cans, dont get why they chain them down though. The foot bridges that cross the little creek are very helpful as well. All in all a short course that is good for beginners and for ace runs. The disc golf driving range next to hole 7 is pretty cool. Dont see alot of places to lose plastic for the newer guys either.
Cons: LOTS of standing water. The sewer smell on hole 10/11. Not very challenging for pro/adv players even from the longs.
Other Thoughts: Parking seems it could get to a disaster if the park is full. Would rather hit up BB Owens or Rockwall for sure.

Much more than I expected.
Pros: Complete with concrete tee boxes for a par and pro par - this is a real 36-hole course if you want it to be. The tees are 6x12 and each was fully marked with a color sign complete with picture and yardage. Make sure you keep track when playing the blue (pro par) versus the white (par) tees.
The creek makes a person work, especially on hole 5 (good risk versus reward). After a rain storm some of the feeder streams become real hazards as well.
Good location in the park and most holes are flat and stroller friendly, however some of the bridges over the creeks are not. There are also restroom facilities and a playground in the park to occupy the kids.
BEST HOLE/S: #5
Cons: Hole #6 and #16 felt like pinball holes and hole #6 felt like a filler just to get to a long wide open hole #7. Some players may feel that this course is too short, but the holes under 200 feet are tight with trees and obstacles.
The course map is on the way to hole five and fairly out of the way of the first tee. This is coupled with some awkward flow between pin and tees through the first 6 holes.
Hole 10 through 15 are shorter and more technical which may turn off some players, and I noticed that the sign yardage (hole 10 is a good example) didn't feel very accurate. My buddy hit the basket (six inches from in) with a ¾ strength throw and the hole is listed at 375'. I would say it felt more like 275'.
WORST HOLE/S: #6
Other Thoughts: With a short but diverse 18-hole course, I had low to medium expectations for Paschall, but walked away feeling very satisfied with my round, the course, and its challenges. I played this course after three straight days of downpours, but even in the thick mud I enjoyed myself immensely. All holes played some type of water because of the rain, and many holes became true risk versus reward shots.
While the course flow wasn't perfect - given the fact that there are 36 viable holes of golf here I would add this to my play anytime I'm in Dallas list. It may not be the most popular course in the area, but it certainly was a gem.

Land of the Yellow Poles
Pros: Hole 1 is a tricky low hallway shot with a very shallow stream that comes into play after the rains,it can foul up your shots on hole 2 as well .I enjoyed playing thru the Mesquite trees on number 16.Decent distances not too short,Water on the first few holes keeps it somewhat interesting.Logs in the back corner at nine for relaxation.Decent mixture of open and wooded shots.
Cons: There were only two holes that really make you hafta think more then twice about what line to take.Flat playing surface,Some holes seemed crammed in too much.
Other Thoughts: The tee box mistake of putting three of them on fifteen makes playing the longer one very difficult.It ain't no Rockwall but its a decent answer till Audobon makes its comeback, if that ever happens.

Pros: Excellent Signage.
Dual concrete tee pads.
Good flow and is easy to find your way.
Quite a variety of holes from tight over a winding creek to narrow well defined fairways to wide open super long holes.
This course has a 400' driving range.
Cons: A few holes are just real wide open so in the summer you feel like you have to cross the Sahara to play the shaded area of the course.
The neighborhood yards that run along one side of the course comes into play on a couple of holes. One yard even has signs saying "keep off" so a mando has been installed to keep people from throwing at that yard.
You could lose discs in the water which could be frustrating for newer players.
Other Thoughts: Some courses are too hard. Some courses are too soft. This course is just right for a fun, quick round.

Good new course in Mesquite, TX
Pros: This new course is very well maintained, with excellent signs, nice long tee-pads, and a fair mix of holes. There are some long holes (~650ft par 4, two ~450ft par 3s) from the Blue (pro) tees, and even the White (am) tees have some decent lengths.
There were also some short holes, a couple that required good aim, but nothing that felt unfair. The White tees (which I didn't play) had several holes that were simply short straight shots without obstructions, but perhaps that made up for a ~375ft par 3.
Following the course was reasonably easy, though there are a couple of spots (6 to 7 and 16 to 17) where you have to look around.
Also a plus was that there's really little chance you'll lose a disc. Only holes 17 and 18 have much risk of dropping a disc into a creek with water.
Cons: Biggest con was by far the fact that the Blue tees were often (6 times total) placed within the fairway of the previous hole. Perhaps they don't expect many people to be playing the pro tees, but I found it a tad ridiculous. Had a group been behind us, they would have either had to wait until we threw for our hole, or been very accurate.
These tees are usually placed off to the side of the fairway, so perhaps the feeling was that they wouldn't get in the way. But I'm an amateur who prefers to play harder settings, and so when I'm throwing 300' ft, I'm likely to be 20 yards off the mark.
That's really the only serious con. The area is flat, so there isn't much opportunity for height changes. There are creeks, but all but one is dried up (this might be a good thing).
Parking was a little odd; there's a few parking spots near the 1st hole, but most of the parking is further into the park, so you have a little walk to the tee. Also, there isn't a practice basket. There appears to be one, but it is actually the basket for the 2nd hole.
Other Thoughts: I intend to play this course again with my friends. I really applaud Mesquite for putting in such a nice course. They even have a very nice scorecard that you can pick up from the Mesquite recreation center, which is apparently near the course on Galloway.
If the course gains a following, then I think it will start to feel cramped due to the tees. Or everyone will choose to play the short white ones.
I'd rate the course to be less challenging than Veteran's Park, either of the Lester Lorch courses, Lake Lewisville, and certainly easier than the new Rockwall course. However, it's closer to the city than all of those, and is therefore a good alternative.
I think it is more challenging than B.B. Owen, or most of the other 9-hole courses in close to Dallas.
