Something In The Water
3 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: + Ample trapezoidal concrete tee pads set flush with ground resulting in great launching pads.
+ Mach 5 baskets.
+ Multiple pin locations for all but one hole.
+ Beautifully maintained turf throughout course.
+ Small beautifully chiseled headstones mark each tee pad giving hole number and distances.
+ Well balanced for righties and lefties.
+ Graceful flowing stream meanders through course coming into play on many holes.
+ 4 or 5 small lakes or ponds scattered throughout course come into play. Because of the many water hazards I pack at least two water discs.
+ Easy to navigate.
+ Concrete walking path throughout course makes for challenging O.B.
+ 4 or 5 holes to let the big dog eat.
+ Practice basket by parking lot.
+ Restrooms and drinking fountain on site.
+ Course sets in quiet Owasso neighborhood.
Cons: - Concrete walking path runs through and around most holes and seems to attract many walkers so take care.
- No elevation changes to speak of.
- Walk from parking lot to tee one is about two football fields long.
- Trapezoidal concrete tees are in backwards. Short side in back.
- A few overly open holes.
- Course does not loop back during round so pack for 18 holes.
Other Thoughts: The biggest con of the course is the concrete walking trail and the many walkers it attracts. You can't blame them however for wanting to be on such a beautiful piece of ground. With a little patience and common sense however not really a big of problem. Without this walking trail this course would be a solid 5 ranking. Many manicured fairways play along side and over a semi wooded creek. The creek itself is shallow and measures approximately 20 to 30 feet across making disc retrieval a easy chore. However retrieving a disc from one of the small lakes is a different story. Depending on pin placement this course can be very technical or a big arms dream. The residents of Owasso should be proud to have such a beautiful disc golf course in their backyard. Every time I come here it gets harder to leave. They must put something in the water.

Lots of civilians
Pros: - Great mix of long and short holes.
- Course is well groomed.
- Good amount of water hazards.
- Concrete tees on every hole.
Cons: - There is a walking trail that goes through the entire course so you might have to wait for the lane to clear before you throw.

- Photographers love to use this course for photo sessions. They don't realize that those baskets might have high speed projectiles thrown at them.
- Ponds are pretty nasty so throwing your disc in is no fun.
Pros: Challenging baskets far away from the tee-off that make it fun to throw as hard as you can, great use of water in the course, very vast course that offers a good amount of play time
Cons: Finding the next basket is way more difficult than it should be. It's not as clear as most courses are. My girlfriend and I played and after a certain hole, we went to another one that was close by it which we assumed was the next hole. However, we ended up skipping the 2 holes before that one. Directions are awful, it needs improvement no question. The signs that put the hole in diagrams are also pretty sketchy, some are broken down, all of them face the wrong direction and they cause confusion by including more than one basket in their maps, making it hard to decide what the goal of this particular hole is.
Other Thoughts: Overall, it's a fun course. But with clearer instructions and better directions to the holes, this course could be 10 times better than it is.

Pros: Well designed course with multiple pin positions, and large, really good quality tees. Even some benches behind some of the tees. Trees are not ubiquitous in this park so, the ones that are there are utilized quite thoughtfully. pin placements provide unique challenges, and water comes into play on most holes. Signs on all holes. Well maintained park with mowed grass on fairways.
Cons: Signage is good overall, but could be better - mabe a next tee position.
Other Thoughts: I really liked this course, it definitely caters to big arms (which personally I like) but even noodle arms will find this course offering them some interesting challenges. It isn't particularly technical, so birdie opportunities off drives are a must if you want to stay competitive. But even new players will enjoy this course. Also, I went at the end of the summer so all the creekbeds were dry meaning that there were pretty much no water hazards - which made it pretty fun too. 18 would be a lot of fun if the pond was full (its on a peninsula about 300 at the middle pin position).

Casual type course
Pros: Well maintained. Decent technical shots with a couple wide open big arm throws. Great 18th hole island green.
Cons: Crummy tee signs. Flat. Most holes not too challenging.
Other Thoughts: I enjoyed the course and looking forward to playing it again. It's in a nice area of town.

Quality course given the location
Pros: Course is very well groomed, bathrooms, playgrounds, pavilion.
All concrete tee pads, plenty of length and in great shape, and a very nice feature being that they are wider at the front to account for the multiple pin placements (which exist on almost every hole!).. Mach baskets in very good condition, they look brand new. Tee signs are present and other than the distance seeming a bit optimistic, are more than adequate to navigate the course. It is very easy to find the next tee from the basket, although next-tee markers would really help.
The layout is pretty open, with the holes using the existing trees and creek that runs through the park as sometimes-daunting obstacles.
My memorable holes:
2 - Throw out from tree cover, between two imposing old-growth trees, intimidating.
6 - Short hole, but you either have to go for it and hit the green, with a pond threatening short and left. A small layup area short and right is available if you don't want to man up..
9 - Over a creek, through a small window in the trees, lots of opportunity to get knocked sideways.
16 - Over the creek again, and through some big trees, then the basket perched elevated on a hill with a pond threatening on the right.
18 - As close to a signature hole as you can get I suppose. Throw over a nasty-muddy pond, then the basket is elevated on a mound. A real go-for-it or lay-up decision to be made on this one.
Cons: As stated above, the first con to mention is no "next-tee" indicators. The course designer could really take a cue from other local courses (Redhawk/Blackhawk, or Dovillio for example) and paint an arm on the basket indicating the direction of the next hole, or like a local course just has bricks laid into the dirt with "next tee" on them.
Flat. But hey this is Oklahoma right? What can you do? I do feel that the designer best used the land available, but the fact remains that ther basically is no elevation change. Also, while there is a good bit of old growth trees, there is nothing dense, so the only thing that was able to be done was place baskets behind or in line with what trees are there, which was done pretty well.
Other Thoughts: Even with the lack of much difficulty (for a novice anyway), I found the course to be quite fun to play. I rated it a 3 due to the lack of difficulty and diversity of hole type, and maybe a bit for wondering which of the tees/baskets in sight were the next one, until checking out the signs. One of these items can be fixed easily, while it would take some serious work to address the others.
If you are in the Tulsa area, you're in luck! There are quite a few courses in the area, and this one only being 15 minutes or so away is definitely worth hitting up if you have the time.

Nice Short Course
Pros: I call it an Excellent course for a very short course. Maybe not demanding by any strech of the imagination for the experienced, but comfrotable, clean and maintained.
Cons: What can I say, it's all par 3. It's short. The 18th hole is a disc eater with secondary pin placement accross a pond (not really a con)
Other Thoughts: Tee boxes have been installed. Lots of trees and water hazzards to make an all par 3 enjoyable. If you are learning this is a very nice course. If you are experienced and you live close, it's a clean and a nice place to go play a short tune up course. Hole four and eighteen will at least make you think.

Nice park. Wish I could have seen some of the B pins.
Pros: I was a little worried I was going to take on a monster, but was pleasantly surprised to find a nice suburban course with movable pins. In a short configuration, this is a fun course for rec players, in a longer one, a more challenging layout for advanced players. Flow is fairly logical, although you need to look for the tee signs. Uses the park creek very well as a hazard.
Cons: Some holes were a bit too open for my taste. Flat as a pancake, and due to recent rains there was a lot of standing water on the course. No cement pads yet (although I hear they're in the works). I imagine this course would flood quite easy. A lot of the pins were in their shortest configuration leaving me feeling underwhelmed. Walking path through the course might mean some waiting time.
Other Thoughts: Still looks like a work in progress, but it looks like folks in Owasso will have a cool course to play once they get some pads in. Some trees to help define the fairways a little better could make this magnificent. An excellent addition to all the cool courses in metro Tulsa. Between this, the Mohawk courses, McClure and Dovillio, you could have a full day of discing.

Pros: Very challenging, yet all holes provide a birdie opportunity. Has both open and tight holes. In the last few weeks they have redesigned the course adding 9 holes and moving most of the already existing holes. This week they installed new signs on each tee box. Course is well groomed and in a nice part of town. Me and my friends are very exciting to have this course right here in Owasso.
Cons: 1. Dirt tee boxes.
2. Difficult to play 18 without ending up in the water a least once.
4. Some holes run parallel to the the walking path. At times you have to be patient as you wait on walkers to pass by.
Other Thoughts: Someone convinced the Shell station down the street to begin selling innova discs. This is great since the next closest store is a about 25 minutes away.
