Pros: Course was fully mowed and clean. Map of course on a sign right when you get into park. Attempted framed tee boxes that have potential to be better than just natural tees. Nice little park with amenities for children. Good beginner course that could be manageable for entry level players.
Cons: There are metal posts at every tee, but there are no signs. Not sure if signs have gone missing, or they have never been installed. Doesn't really affect the flow of the course, but doesn't help in determining distances.

Hole #1 is overgrown and virtually impossible to throw the intended line.

Hole #2 is visually appealing, but has a neighborhood fence line running up the right side of the fairway that could easily claim some discs on errant throw, or you could easily hit a house.

Hole #3 (for me) was tough cause I didn't know the distance and ended up long of the basket, only to discover there was a barbed wire fence long of the basket. Luckily I didn't cross it.

Hole #4 was a nice uphill long shot that would be tough to deuce.

Hole #5 was a short putter ace run.

Hole #6 was a cool looking downhill putter shot, but, if you overshot it, you would be in some pretty nasty, marshy looking drainage area.

Hole#7 I imagine would have been ok, but, like I had read, you could not get to the tee, which was located in the same marshy area.

Hole #8 actually had a line you needed to hit, however it was only like 100'.

Hole #9, again super short.
Other Thoughts: Park was in good shape when I visited, but looks like it could get brutal if not mowed.

Drainage areas on opposite ends of park could get nasty after rain, and may retain water for longer than it seems.

Park was located in a new looking subdivision off the beaten path, so, it seemed way underused.

Pros: This is a good 9 hole practice course. Has a couple decent elevation shots.
Cons: Really short course, almost all open holes. It seems as if it was always windy every time I played. Plus if it has rained from what observed and was also told by neighborhood regulars is that its just too muddy for a few days and you cant even get to a couple tee boxes because how muddy it is!
Other Thoughts: Only play if you are just learning and/or live in the area, other than that play Rivery if you're in the area!

Pros: Great map and signs. Easy to ace holes if you're desperate or if you're a beginner looking for an easy course. Enjoyable if its dry and you have had a really bad day of playing. This will lift your spirits.
Course design isn't awful. Just really easy.
Cons: Can't play 6 or 7 if it has rained. 3 is difficult after rain. Too easy. Some signs have been vandalized or are missing. Hole 4 is the longest and its also kind of hard to pick out. Not meant for seasoned players.
Other Thoughts: Leisurely disc golf. That is for sure. Fun for beginners or people begging for an ace.

Pros: Nice clean shots for the majority of the holes, and it's a pretty course to play. You can play driver or putter throughout the course, as most holes are fairly short.
Cons: Pinnacle turns into a swamp after it rains. The drainage is horrible, and I wouldn't suggest playing it at any times of the year aside from Summer and Fall.
Other Thoughts: Good for amateur and new players.

Pros: This course is a course that allows you to work on your overall game. easy shots, aces, hard shots, through the trees, and long/strategic shots, long throws-but not too long to overshoot. Had my best score there. This course will either make your day, or blow it.
I like the course and will be back.
Cons: Grass needs to be cut and drainage on 7 needs to be modified around tee box. Can anyone donate some granite gravel. :) Some of that drainage spills over onto the #6 green.
Other Thoughts: The Texas Junior Championships are being held there this saturday. The city of round rock needs to come cut the course. It is knee high and waist high grass on an adult, will lose children in some of the longer grass.

Pros: I would say five of the nine holes on this course would fall into the pitch and putt category. The other four holes have either trees, elevation change, distance or a combination of the three that creates a challenge. There are a couple of holes where the basket is on a pretty steep slope, which adds a risk if you "run it".

There is a large sign with a map at hole #1, although the course would be very easy to follow without a map because it's so small and open.

This is a super fast playing course which is good for a quick round when you don't have much time.

Hole #6 is the only one with much of a fun factor because it's about a 30' elevation drop.
Cons: The tee pads are timber framed and filled with crushed granite. The only benefit this provides over dirt is that they don't get muddy after a rain. The problem is that they are already becoming uneven and the gravel is slippery.

The entire course is covered with wild blackberries, thorns, and thistles. If you hit these just right they will stop your disc in it's tracks with no skip. It looks like the city of Georgetown is going to leave the DG part of the park in it's natural condition so this may always be a pretty thorny course. It's not that bad unless your'e wearing flip flops.

The #7 Tee Pad is in a flood prone area making it virtually unplayable for a few weeks after a heavy rain.

Hole # 9 is a little annoying because the tee pad is up by where the course should end and the basket is back down by the #1 basket.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course for newer players.
