Great practice area

Pros: Have you ever been frustrated with having a course designer tell YOU where you need to tee off from? You won't have that problem here! Make up your own tee!
There are three baskets to choose from. The park actually has some nice trees (and quite a few) to play around, through, and over.
Cons: No tees, no signs, and only about half of the park is even used. It looks like the middle of the park is used for soccer practice or something, and I'm guessing that's why there aren't a couple more baskets. Too bad, this could be a 5-hole course otherwise.
The map on this site shows one way to play this as a 9-hole course. I wouldn't spend much time trying to figure out precisely where you are supposed to tee off from.
The park was moderately busy when I was here. I was about to tee off on the first throw but had to wait for a woman with a parrot on her shoulder to walk down the path. These are the types of things you see in Vegas.
Other Thoughts: It's debatable whether this place is even a course (I'd say no). Having said that, I'm glad it's on this site. You probably have a park in your neighborhood with a decent playground, some useable swings, maybe a slide and some monkey bars. It's not a 5-star playground, but it doesn't have to be. It's just a neighborhood park.
That's how I feel about this place. If I lived within 10 minutes, I'd be here all the time, practicing my forehand and approach shots, maybe working on different lines. For those purposes, this place is great (you won't have to worry about people wanting to play through!).
But if you don't live nearby, I wouldn't go out of your way. It's just three baskets in a small park.

Don't go here
Pros: 1st hole was kinda fun with the tunnel shot....
I guess this is Vegas and there are better things to do?
Cons: very short and open course, no real challenging shots and not very fun to play. routinely threw over or near roads or sidewalks that were frequented by locals.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't bother taking a trip out to the course or packing my discs to check this course out.

Not a Course
Let me start off by saying that this is not a true course… 3 baskets with multiple "undesignated" tee-pads do not make up a 9 Hole course. With that said, it's on DGCR so here's my review:
- A few Decent Shots. There were a few decent shots out there. They would have been better Holes if I knew that I was playing the Hole from the right area. I did my best to play from where the map said I should be playing, but without tee-pads there is no way I could know for sure. Otherwise, if I was standing in the spot where the tee-pads would be if there were tee-pads, then there would have been some good Holes at Davis.
- Am I at the Tee-Pad??? Without official tee-pads, you're just out there throwing from spots that you think look good to you. How can a course be a course without a designated place to start from… therefore Davis Park is…
- Not a Course. Without tee-pads, it's hard to call this place a course. Sure there is a map that outlines where the Holes should be played from, but in reality… it's just 3 baskets in a park with the opportunity to throw shots.
- I Hope Someone Who Cares Does Something. All this place needs is a little care. A little spray-paint on the walking path designating a tee-pads location, a dot on a tree, construction flags… something… find a way to designate tee-pads and make it a course.
- Overall. Davis Park is currently just a great place to practice, it's not a course. If someone was to create some tee-pads, I would be able to forgive the 3 basket 9 Hole concept. But, without them, only go here to practice.
- My Disc Score: This is the worst score I've ever given, however not the worst shots I've ever seen. I'll give a half disc for having baskets.
- My Score: -3
