Pros: Everything about this course is pretty much wonderful. I like the variation of angles you have for the tee shots, because the disc catchers are very strategically placed. Beautiful scenery helps add to this courses rating.
Cons: Like the other reviews on this course, it would be nice to concrete the tee boxes. The mud was somewhat of a factor.
Other Thoughts: I look forward to every chance i get now to play at Northshore.

Pros: Great course in a well kept park on the north bank of Lake Fayetteville. Good variation of shots, open, tunnel, heavily wooded, short, long, water could be a problem on windy days but shouldnt be too big of a deal. Lots of pedestrians walking and biking around, keep an eye out and you will have no problems. Easy to get around with next tee signs located after every basket pointing the way. Noticed a few trash bins along the way looks like it helps with keeping the park tidy. The lake looks clean enough to get in if you throw one in it.
Cons: Can get very muddy when it is wet because of the dirt tee pads. Course map isnt exactly what the course is like but I used it and got around fine good for refrence I guess.
Other Thoughts: Concrete tee pads would do this place wonders for sure. Ill go back in the summer time and maybe change my review when everything is green.

 Rough around the edges, but a fun course

Pros: Tons of variety, open fairways to extremely tight woods. The overall distance is relatively low, but many there aren't a lot of birdie candidates here due to clever use of obstacles. Shooting pro par is actually a challenge despite the short length. The designer did a nice job of utilizing what little elevation exists on the land; holes 7, 10, and 16 (i think) all let you rip off nice, open downhill shots. Hole 2 is a championship hole, over 300 ft tunnel shot bordering the lake (literally 10 ft from the fairway).
Cons: Poor to very poor tee boxes & inconsistent signs. Lack of alternate baskets (guess I am used to KC courses).
Other Thoughts: Cement tee boxes and accurate signs would go a long way. The park is heavily used, so you have to watch for walkers/bikers and other players.

Pros: I really like the layout. It has a little something for everyone. It varies from short, tight, finesse holes to wide open, air-it-out, bomb-away holes. It's situated right next to Lake Fayetteville which is centrally located between Fayetteville and Springdale.

This course actually has fairways. The parks department mows the golf course far more frequently than the rest of the park, so there's actually an advantage to being in the fairway.
Cons: It may have heavy pedestrian traffic on a couple of holes, so you may have to wait a little while before teeing off on those.

There's tons of poison ivy out there. If you're allergic, stay away.

There are no maps or signs on most of the holes. Navigation can be a nightmare if you've never played here before.

The tee boxes are come in three styles: dirt, mud, and tree roots. None of which is that great to play on.
Other Thoughts: New tee boxes and signs would help this one a ton, but it's still the best in NW Arkansas.

Pros: Good open, flat course. Great for beginner action. A few tricky holes
Cons: Poorly maintained - many tee boxes are dirt holes, some as much as a foot depressed due to overuse and under attention from the city. Poor to non-existent signs on the way in (if you don't know where you are going you'll have to look around to find it (right by the lake in the woods)
Other Thoughts: I remember having a fairly good time at this, having a flat in the parking lot, and going to play at the Jones Center disc golf course while I waited for Wal Mart to fix my tire. Right near Lewis & Clark, which stock Innova kit and all other kinds of outdoors gear.

We played the course Gulley Park and it was much more fun and entertaining, but I can understand why it had to be closed (too many hits on bystanders - went right through a heavily trafficked urban park). My buddy almost acing (hit the pin) 18 at Gulley, then four putting is still brought up on occasion when we all get together.

Pros: When I played the course it was a beautiful summer day and the park was in very nice shape. About 2/3 of the holes are in the woods, several requiring you to hit very tight lines, and 1/3 are out in the open. The overall distance of the course is relatively short, but the challenging lines and holes can make up for this in regards to scoring. Some things that I liked a lot about this course were the shot variety (righties and lefties should be pretty equally challenged), the pretty setting with the lake surrounded by wooded hills along the side of the course, and the baskets were high quality preventing most spit outs. I went up for a tournament and had a great time.
Cons: The biggest negatives that I noticed were the tee boxes and tee signs. The boxes are dirt (therefore, the boxes were mud) and some were dug out a bit so that they held water. The signs were inconsistent on telling the distance. Maybe half the time they told you how many feet away you were and half the time they just said what hole number it was. Another potential negative about the course is that it could be tricky to find your way around the first time out there. Several times the course criss crosses itself and the next tee that you are supposed to play isn't the closest tee to you. The setup also led to some waiting as people on other holes could be teeing off in your throw zone. As others previous to me mentioned, I can also see how this could potentially be a sloppy course (mud and water wise), although when I played it was in very good shape some tee boxes excluded.
Other Thoughts: The course has some very fun holes. The long straight drive going towards the lake on 7 really is a pretty hole. Hole 12 is a beast with some wicked lines to try to hit especially in the long position. Hole 16 is a slightly downhill open 400 footer that makes for a fun drive since it is so reachable even for arms that usually wouldn't be able to put it that far. I greatly enjoyed myself playing Northshore, and I can't wait for another good excuse to get up there.

Pros: Some challenging holes, with the signature hole 7, a 400 foot long and 30 foot wide tunnel shot. 5-6 tight wooded shots with the rest being open hyzers.

It's an enjoyable round when it's dry.
Cons: Most of the course is at or below lake level and after it rains the course is sloppy for weeks. Dirt tee pads are eroded to the point of tree roots being exposed, and combine with wet conditions make for unpleasant tees.
Other Thoughts: If you like to throw hyzers 250-350, you'll be able to handle this course.

Pros: Good shot variety. 1/3 Open, 1/3 limited path, and 1/3 is some of the shortest, but tightest holes you will ever play.
Cons: One single elevation. Can get very busy.
Other Thoughts: A few of the tight holes are right on the edge of the lake. Kicking off of a tree into the lake is a very real possibility.
