Pros: *No repetition on any holes
*Balance of A,B, and C pin placements
*Great tee boxes
*Great homemade tee signs
*Well maintained
*Benches on every hole
*Trash cans throughout the course
*A few water fountains on the course
Cons: Some pros could disagree with me, but hole 23 was just way too hard. It was a tight 575 foot par 4 in C position with a downhill dogleg to the left.
Other Thoughts: This course is a legendary course, and I can't wait to come back!

One of the Greats

Pros: World-class course:
-Extremely well-maintained by the park and local volunteers
-Concrete tees
-27 holes with remarkably little repetition
-Wide variety of holes (elevation, wooded, open, water)
-Constantly changing (different pads/tees for each hole)
-Good signage explaining where the pin is located on any given day, clear maps with distances
-Signs pointing to next hole with clear paths in between
-Challenging but fair fairways, always pushing risk vs reward
-In the middle of a beautiful park
Cons: Despite everything above, I'm not sure if the course really offers a signature hole ( maybe hole 9 or 17?).

On busy days there maybe be a decent number of walkers and bikers nearby. Never close enough to interfere with play, and never actually on the course, but something to be aware of.
Other Thoughts: A lot of fun to play. If you're thinking about going, do it.

Pros: Probably not going to say anything new that hasn't been said before in this review but I came from out of town looking to get my disc fix. I posted on the clubs Facebook page asking for someone to play a round with and within a couple of hours got a reply from the club president. While just about every other review is about the course, I think it's a huge pro when a club presents a positive experience for those of us just passing thru.

Of course the game play was great too. Lots of challenging holes that rewards power and accuracy. But at the same time a beginner can still enjoy the mix of basket placements. The course was fun to play and the scenery and elegance in its design is evident.
Cons: None really. My only grip is that the holes presented lots of doorway tees in which you have to bomb it down the fairway while keeping between two trees. In other words, you had to make it past those trees or suffer. This speaks more to my being a beginner and not having the skill to consistently make these technical skills, but the only way to improve these holes would be to offer several different routes to the basket (to the left or right, high or low). Really this is just nitpicking and forces me to work on shots I find difficult, so it's not a true con. It does however require an element of skill that could frustrate new players. That said, the shorter tee positions alleviate this for many holes.
Other Thoughts: Local course is Ryan Ranch, home of 2011 worlds. This course is very different from that course, but no less challenging or beautiful. Nice to see the east coast, where I'm from originally, can match the west coast is courses.

Pros: Couldn't ask for a nicer course. Signs make navigation a breeze. Beautiful park. Open shots, technical shots, elevation changes. This place is awesome!
Cons: If baskets are in C location, it can make for a tough afternoon.
Other Thoughts: You won't find a better course anywhere in the area

Pros: Excellent signage.
Great Variety of holes.
Multiple pin positions make for everything from long/tough holes, to short ace runs.
Always moving the pin positions.
Benches and bag hangs at nearly every hole.
A few water fountains placed throughout the park.
Beautiful scenery.
27 challenging holes.
All concrete tee pads.
Trash cans placed throughout.
Very clean!
And just everything else about the park!
Cons: Mosquitos are just awful in the summer time.
Can be frustrating for beginners, but if you can play here, you can play anywhere.
Gets really busy on weekends, but thats just a testament to how awesome this park is!
Had a little trouble finding #5 #6 #7 and #19 my first time there.
Other Thoughts: Excellent park that is worth a road trip. I'm lucky enough to live 20 minutes from the park, but I'd drive a few hours for it. You absolutely do not want to miss it! Also I heard they got approval for another 9, may just be speculation, but that would be amazing.

Cons: * No good loop for the back 18: the first 18 make one loop, and the back 9 make another separate loop.
Other Thoughts: * Very few real water hazards (could be a pro or con, depending on your preferences)

The Enchanted Forest

Pros: 27 challenging holes that snake through a beautiful old wood forest(some trees 10+ft around) In a full 27 you will see glory and defeat, risk and reward, and will need every shot in your arsenal to be on point. 3 pin/2 tee positions for each hole makes playing Tyler an ever changing beast, you never really know what to expect. Sometimes the layout can change 1 or 2 times in a week. New even longer (if you can believe that!) tee pads went in on a few holes this past year holes 6,8,10,15,25 and the new score card with exact distances/pars for short and long in A. B, & C are great. Multiple full bathrooms & water fountains through out the 27 are an added bonus you dont get at many courses. When I first played Tyler I couldn't really think of needed improvements, yet in that 4+ year span each year this course seems to grow and add new and unique touches to make the rounds different. For example an amazing new pin position on 9 has been added, using the logs removed from the parking area, currently there is a PVC pin in similar to the yetter pins.

Need to mention how great the BCDGA is. THANK YOU! From constantly improving the course and relentlessly changing the pin positions to selling custom Tyler state park disc which a % goes back into the park getting lost plastic back to their owners and all the great Charity events/ benefit events/ pro-level events you guys roc.
Cons: Hard to think of something worthwhile for this section, the first thing that comes to mind is, if your off your game, Tyler can be rough day in the woods. Especially in a competitive round, this course is not very forgiving... Dont give up! Second thing that comes to mind is car and walking paths sometimes come into play on bad shots or ricochet off trees, also sometimes the fairways get confused by park non-DGers as hiking trails, give them a polite heads up and they are typically happy to obligee.
Other Thoughts: Tyler was the course that i was introduced to the sport, lets just say those first few rounds were frustrating at times. But looking back it was this course that forced me to get my game up to level it is at currently.

Hiking Boots/shoes recommended
