Second Best Course in DFW
1 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: Every hole is a challenge from start to finish. LOVE THIS COURSE
Super long and tight lines on the legit Par 4s and 5s.
They do have short tees marked by red spray paint and flags, I only played the cement long pads.
The River behind hole 13 and to the right of 14 is really low You can lose disc down there but there are paths to go down and get your disc
Cons: The grass is a little deep in spots, getting off the fairways can mean a lost disc quickly.
Off the fairways the brush is super grown up, can lose disc very easy with bad throws or bad tree kicks.
Take a pic of the Course map, it was useful to find a couple hole locations, lots of trails can get confusing
Other Thoughts: I loved this course, with a fresh mowing in the fairways and its a championship level course, I put it right behind Harry Myers (long pads) in length and difficulty. I don't see how this course isnt rated way higher than it is. I think it whoops peoples butt and that is why they hate on it. I got whooped myself and I will be going back very soon. I really liked the course as you can tell.

Pros: It has baskets and concrete tee pads.
Cons: Found some barbed wire between 2 trees on hole 9. jacked my ankle up and had to leave. tetanus shots tomorrow. Lot's of thick nastiness along some of the fairways. parking lot was crammed full.Lot's of trash.
Other Thoughts: I played this course when it was first being put in and only a handful of permanent baskets where in the ground and we used temp baskets for the rest.I had not been out since because of what I saw then and what I read about it in the meantime. Finally got out again today for a round of doubles and I just don't like it. even if I had not injured myself on this seemingly random barbed wire I just would not want to play there. Too many better courses in the DFW area.

Cleaned up NICE!
Pros: Challenging because of trees, angles & distances. Excellent mixture of throws required.
Cons: Watch out for tree stumps - OUCH! Without knowing where I'm going, it wouldn't be so easy to get around... signs aren't so helpful/available.
Other Thoughts: Can be humbling, but my goodness it's fun now that it's been cleaned up & baskets are restored.
NOTE: There are more than a few places to lose discs so bring extras or play safer lines.

Pros: It has baskets and tees?
Cons: Poor/No signage,
Baskets numbered incorrectly throwing you off tremendously
I laughed when I read the reviews about the underbrush being bad, but there are many places that are seemingly untouched and nearly impassable without major deviation to the actual course line.
If you don't put your disk right where you want it, your going to have to enter heavy thorn filled bushes.
All sorts of trash, everywhere.
Some parts of the course look like bums live there, and that's not an exaggeration.
Other Thoughts: I've played practically every course in and around the metroplex and nothing compares to this. I only live about ten minutes from here, but will not play it again unless drastic improvements are made.
The funny part about that is that I was told it has recently had major improvements. Wow.

One of the worst in DFW
1 Helpful / 3 Not
- Concrete teepads
- Tee signs
- Most holes have no discernable line.
- Stickers are extremely pervasive. Everyone in my party was covered in them after the first hole and every hole thereafter.
- Not remotely well maintained.
- Missing baskets on the back nine.
- Impossible to navigate without constantly checking the map.
- Poison Ivy/Oak
Other Thoughts: This course would have potential if they cleaned out all the underbrush with stickers and thorns. Many people talk about a course's "fun factor", well this course had a negative fun factor. It was more like a misery factor with the lack of reasonable lines to hit and underbrush that mangled my legs and left me covered with hundreds of tiny souvenirs.

Pros: RECENT CLEAN UP! THE FIRST 9 HOLES HAVE BEEN CLEARED WELL AND WE ARE STILL WORKING ON IT DAILY.
Cons: STILL MORE CLEAN UP NEEDED ON BACK 9 THE CITY IS REPLACING TWO MORE BASKETS AND WE WILL HAVE 18. THE MORE TRAFFIC THE BETTER THIS COURSE WILL GET.
Other Thoughts: PLEASE COME SEE US AT OUR MINI'S ON SATURDAYS 3PM. WE HAVE CLEANED UP THIS COURSE AND READY TO GET IT BACK IN ACTION!

Times a Changing
Pros: Established course
Cons: Loss of baskets
Other Thoughts: Has comes a long way from its beginning but as of late with the theft of three baskets and the park closing the gate on the back 9 and took out all of the baskets. So the18 holes are now down to 7 out of 9 on the front 9. Thus the lack of playable holes maintenance has also dropped resulting in overgrown weeks.

Pros: there is a great mix of long and short holes. none of the short holes save 2 or 3 are easy birdies. trees are large abundant and fairways are fair. gateway will challenge players of all skill levels. easy enough to navigate, and not very crowded unless theres a tourney. the park itself is very secluded. fairways continue to get easier and is no longer as much of a jungle as it was. the city did away with the big concrete deals on hole 5 so the smell is gone. trust me it was really bad. most holes are wooded with only a third being out in a field. wind isnt as much of a problem here except on a few holes. water is practicly non existant most of the year and drains pretty well after a rain. there are plenty of places to stop and take a break along the way. i play here often and shoot in the high 50's low 60's so dont expect to be 6 under unless you're a god.
Cons: can become boring if played too often. this course really does favor a rhbh thrower. some people may count this as a pro but i like some variety.there arent any elevation changes which takes away from the rating. trash is a big problem here and not much is being done to help. there are a few trashcans but they are almost always overflowing. come on ft worth its bad. at the moment holes 6 and 10 are missing baskets. also due to the construction on hole 5, the basket has been moved about 300 feet closer to the tee. hole 5 used to be 707 ft and was one of the signature holes. bikers do use some of the trails around here so watch out.
Other Thoughts: very fun course with a few flaws. one of the better courses in dfw. on a side note if you notice the loop in the back of the park you will notice many cars parked or driving around. these are not golfers. do what you can (within reason) to get these people out of the park. they are up to no good and in my opinion take away from the park.

A Definite Must Play!
Pros: *Lots of diversity throughout the course
*From talking to players that had played there before, it sounds like a ton of work was done on the course to get it in shape
*Excellent use of the landscape
*Very tough course (I list this as a pro because playing courses like this will force you to improve your game or suffer a lot of bogeys and beyond)
*Great location for all residents of the metroplex
Cons: *Signage needs to be improved. The condition of this course is at a championship level. The signage should reflect it. If you haven't played here before take a picture of the course map by the hole 1 tee pad so that you can follow the course. It can be tricky.
*While I enjoyed the complexity of the course and the challenge it presented me, I think a few holes could stand to have a few trees removed so that it is more friendly to all levels of players
Other Thoughts: I was fortunate to be introduced to this course when I played it in the North Texas Tournament Series # 2 by StraightLine Discs. The course amazed me and could be easily on my Top 10 courses in the Metroplex. My score the day of the tournament wasn't very pretty but my appreciation of the course was on par! If you haven't played this course yet, do yourself a favor and make the trip. Make sure to bring a lot of patience with you cause this course will certainly test it.
