Pros: Concrete tee pads on every hole. Technical players will like this course. The course makes good use of elevation and the many many trees. There is good variety in your shot selection. The course loops back to the main pavilion after 7 holes.
Cons: It can be difficult to navigate a couple of the holes your first time on the course. The only bathrooms were a long walk from the start of the course across the parking lot, which is across the park road.

The luck factor on many holes was too high for my liking. There were a couple of holes where I threw the main gap, then held my breath hoping the disc would get the rest of the way.
Other Thoughts: The only time I played this course was in a pro championship tournament, so set up was in its most difficult positions (not sure how many different positions there are). It was very obvious to me that the local club had worked very hard in preparation for this big tournament, so the park was in pristine condition. The fairways were clean and a lot of cons I read from the other reviews seemed to be cleared up in my opinion. The park is really easy to get to off the interstate. This course was fun to play, but the number of interesting holes were equally met by the number of stupid holes. The good news is that the other course in the park is good and balances out the 2 courses nicely.

 Arkansas Classic

Pros: Wooded course combined with some fairly open shots
Nearly Constant Change (always mixing it up - new pin positions)
Great unique holes (the berm, behind the bushes, the pipe)
Lots of traffic keeps things clean (concrete pads with a few exceptions on the back 9)
Cons: Busiest course around LR
Dirt pads are worn down - gets muddy when wet
Easy to lose discs into Freeway ROW (easy jump though) or into the old water slide on hole 15.
Not always as well marked as it should be, but usually pretty easy to find your away around or someone will help you out.
Changes to course not always well posted.
In the back of a park, you get the occasional visitor (also near a children's play area) - hole 18 has a blind shot into another tee box/pin area that can get dicey quick if something ventures over the berm.
Other Thoughts: I learned on this course (along with the Blue). Considered one of the finest courses in Arkansas, and the course I play probably 75-80% of the time. The guys who maintain it keep changing stuff up.

Wrote a lot of Cons because I've played it a bunch - many add character (hole 15 next to an abandoned waterslide, the freeway, the berm) but are good FYIs for anyone who's not played it before.

 Fun Wooded Course

Pros: Great design...uses trees/terrain very well
Some VERY unique holes--one with a great man-made hanging obstacle...one on the spine of a long rise
Pretty intuitive for being a wooded course
Rewards accuracy
Punishes wayward shots
Forces a wide variety of throws and stategy

Cons: A couple of holes could have a pointer or sign to next tee (once you play it a couple of times it's no big deal...but the first time I had a couple of holes that took a little time to find the tee)
Not much else is negative to me...

Other Thoughts: After the first couple of times playing both courses, I now only play the red course....
I've had a couple of awesome rounds here and it makes me want to keep coming back to try to do better...
Every time I'm in Little Rock, it is a MUST PLAY course and worth the short drive out of the town...
Super easy to get to off the freeway
