Pros: Clean park. Beginner friendly. Big yellow posts with red top make it where you don't need next Tee signs. Nice disc catchers. Enough parking. Hole 1 is the most technical hole as it has more trees than most of the others. Great place to bring your practice basket and make up your own shots, mainly because there are some hills from which to launch that were not used in the design. Some were, just not all. Big mean drainage ditch/creek. Discs are retrievable but it is pretty steep in a couple of spots. Wind can add challenge as it is a pretty wide open course except for a few pockets of trees. Hole 2 used the creek nicely. It is about 300 ft. to the pin with the creek about 240. Which leaves us noodle arms with a question of strategery. Pros would consider it another ace run and just park it. Great practice course or place to play your 1st round because of the lack of trees and deep water hazards.
Cons: People everywhere, 1st day of spring may have played a role. The design could have been better IMO, the hills would have been fun to launch off of. Just nitpicking. For what this park is, there isn't too many cons. Just few design tweaks would suit me. Of course there is the safety issue and that is because they put a disc golf course in a busy park, so no big surprise. We are used to sharing these city park type courses with civilians anyways so just watch out for the little ones.
Other Thoughts: This is a quick round and good practice for whatever shot you need to work on, because it's so open and forgiving of poor 1st shots. If you are close then by all means bag it and porter park is only about 4 miles away.

 Another nice 9 hole course

Pros: This course is really well maintained and has a winding, treeless creek that runs through the course. There is almost no chance that you will ever be in the trees on this course (slight chance on hole #2). Great tee pads and disc catchers.
Cons: Hole number 1 is very short.
Other Thoughts: The locals I met said that to make hole #1 more challenging and fun that they park by the Quizno's up on the other side of the creek and throw at the hole from behind the shopping center- there is a big utility box and about 25' of concrete and it does make this hole way more fun, just watch out if you are a righty and you throw a hyzer from way up there. Hole number 9 ends right there as well so when you're finished you can just go to your car without having to deal with the bridge again.

 Another mesquite 9-holer

Pros: This is a fairly fun course set in a family environment.For a nine hole there is a good variety of hole length ranging from 132ft to 405ft with a little elevation on s couple holes.Holes all boarder the creek in some way,which could also be a con for beginners.

There are restrooms and water fountains located near hole #1 and #5.Also trash cans throughout the park.
To get form 7 to 8 and 9 to 1 you must walk next to busy streets to cross the creek.

There is no shot variety at all, every hole is a strait shot down an open fairway.
Other Thoughts: There are two playgrounds on either side of the park, and walking trails throughout the park making this a great place to bring the family.

Pros: I rated this one pretty high. I like a fun course, that still challenges me enough not to get bored. This course was the perfect blend. Some good length, they really used the creek bed well. Hole 2, wow, I just really loved this hole. This park was very nice, well groomed short grass. Every tee box is marked with a tall yellow pole, very easy to see, weather the sign is intact or not. Concrete tee boxes are here, which I'm more and more a fan of.
Cons: The walking trails criss-cross all over the course, we weren't there at a peak time, so not an issue, but on the weekend this could really suck. Hole one was really, really short. Several tee signs missing or in the process of breaking off.
Other Thoughts: So I can see why this course gets lower ratings. Several holes are defiantly easy. I rate courses on quality and fun. I played this the same day I played Lake Lewisville and Northlake Park, and really I had the most fun here. It was the cleanest park as well.

Pros: This is a fair-minded neighborhood 9-holer. It has a creek that runs along a couple of holes. The signs are excellent and the park seems to be well maintained. The cement tee pads are in great shape and the course is not that difficult to follow. There was a restroom and drinking fountain on site.
Cons: There does seem to be a good number of walkers, so the safety dance is in play here. Most every hole is a straightaway. Most of the holes and pin placements were out in the open with little creativity. There was lots of trash on the course and very few trashcans.
Other Thoughts: The fun factor here was just OK. Maybe the birdie hole #1 was about the only thrill I got playing here. Sadly, I doubt I will head back to play this one again. So, to reflect the title of this review, it is a plain layout without much kick to it.

 Great Beginner Course

Pros: Another good 9 hole course for beginners. Hole #2 is the best on this course. Holes have good elevation changes and have good concrete tee-boxes.
Cons: Some holes are missing signs and you'll have to walk a little far between some holes.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed playing this course. It's a good one to play twice to make a 18 hole game.

The city always does a great job for making courses and keeping them well kept.
Great for Right Handed Side Arm throwers and for Lefties!
I have never played it when it was crowded. This could be a great place to let the kids and wife hangout on the playground equipment while you squeeze 9 holes in under an hour. Even though it has little shot variety, it has a few holes that make it worth playing.
Top 3 holes.

#2 Is the best hole on the course. You have to either throw short of the creek or cross over a creek that cuts in the fairway. A stream also flows on the right of this hole and could eat some discs. Also play the concrete OB.

#3 This hole along with 2 or the top holes to play. Good shots are a must, but even a beginner can handle it. Very balanced.

#7 Longer in comparison to the others on the course. Roughly wide open but the creek will come into play. Big arms will have no problem making a 2 or a 3.

For only 9 holes it is a fun little course and worth playing.
#8 & 9 seem like the same hole played twice.

#1 is very short...too short.

No bridge to cross over the #8 or back to #1. You have to walk right by the road, and if you have kids this can be scary.

Won't affect play but some of the tee signs are missing or vandalized.
Other Thoughts:
If you live in the area this would be a nice course to come to after work. Just lacking a few things but it does compare well to the others in the area.

 Nice Neighborhood Park

A nice neighborhood 9-hole course with quality concrete tees, Discatcher Pro baskets, and high visibility descriptive tee signs. This is an excellent model of how an introductory course should be equipped. The tee signs give directions to the next tee when necessary. There are restroom facilities and a water fountain by hole #1. Speaking of which... hole #1 sets a deceptive tone by starting you with an easy 132' birdie hole. Then it unleashes hole #2: a 405' hole with the creek looming on the right, and hole #3 a 362' downhill bomb with the creek on the left this time. Those are the best two holes on the course. The navigation is easy especially if you read the tip on the #2 tee sign for how to get to #3. There's some decent elevation changes in this little course too.
The placard on the #3 tee sign is missing. There's a walking/jogging trail weaving through the park so you need to be aware of pedestrians and other park patrons possibly playing in fairways. The course finishes with a couple lackluster holes that are almost identical shots with the baskets parked on the side of a slight hill.
Other Thoughts:
There are water hazards but most are pretty easy to avoid with a conservative throw (#3 is the most risky for RHBH). There are some reviews mentioning the desire for foot bridges. There are already two street bridges that are only a minor bit out of the way to get from one hole to the next, or back to the parking lot. Adding foot bridges would be very costly and aren't really necessary. This is a good starter course and even up to a low intermediate course but advanced and pros are gonna be bored.

 Good Beginner

Pros: Good beginner course. Pretty wide open and not much OB for upper caliber player. Good baskets and concrete tee pads, along with good tee signs. You can play this course very fast and multiple times!! Not very busy so you can throw lots of drives and test new discs/shots out.
Cons: Too easy for Pro/Adv player. No bridges on backside. Other then that, there are no complaints.
Other Thoughts: Bring suntan lotion in the summer. Dont know how it would be after a big rain with the creekbed being there.

Pros: - Great signage at every hole.
- Great course to practice driving due to open terrain.
- Very attractive park. Part of the course follows a creek that comes slightly into play on a few holes.
- Course is well groomed and maintained.
Cons: - Almost too open.
- You don't have to think much on this course.
- Needs more trees and/or shrubs to create obstacles or hazards to get around or avoid.
- Should build 2 bridges. One to cross over the creek from 7 to 8 and one to cross over the creek after 9 to get back to the parking lot.
Other Thoughts: This a fun little course and I will definitely play here again. If you have a consistent throw and can putt at all, Par should be in range for even beginners.
