Pros: The course plays through a mostly disc golf exclusive wooded park. The majority of the holes play through mature trees without much rough. There are multiple lines to choose from, with enough obstacles to make you pick a line and hit it. You'll need some accuracy to get the deuces available here.

The creek comes into play a little, adding some fun risk/reward opportunities. The tees are good sized concrete pads with a decent texture. There are reasonable signs with hole lengths and distances, and the course flows pretty well other than a couple minor spots. The baskets are older, but still catch well enough.
Cons: The course is pretty short overall, and the distances feel pretty similar throughout. There isn't much elevation, adding to the feeling of repetitive shots. You'll score better with a good variety of shots in your bag, but just about every hole offers a pretty straightforward hyzer or straight shot.

A few signs are missing or broken. Two spots are a little tricky to navigate, you might have to do a little extra walking to find a couple of the tees. There are supposedly long tees, they're not obvious to a player passing through without a local guide so I left them out of my review and rating.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will have a blast here. The distances are great for new players, and punishment is pretty limited for errant shots except on the few holes by the creek. More experienced throwers will find the course pretty easy, it's a birdie fest without a ton of variety or challenge for a player with a full range of skills.

Pros: This is a nice course year round. You can generally play here after a rain or snow, and it looks good all year. Lots of easy, but fun holes. When I play here, I am usually trying to beat my best score here all the time. There are really only 2 holes that I don't throw a buzz on, but there are a few different routes for other things on most holes. I love the longs here, but rarely play them for one reason or another.
Cons: Pretty easy, so there tends to be a lot of newbies and on a weekday afternoon it's pretty busy with high schoolers.
Other Thoughts: Nice little course, if you travel to it, be sure to play the longs at least once. Bathroom on site. Pretty clean

 Care for a quick 18?

Pros: Had a blast playing this course....and it might be the quickest 18 in the metroplex. Every hole is birdiable......most holes have a clean enough line of site for an ace chance. Course is friendly for beginners and fun enough for advanced players...just enough trees to make it interesting. Nice big tee boxes and the park seems to be well kept
Cons: Keep your eyes open for other players on the course. Multiple tee boxes are in close proximity to baskets
Other Thoughts: Not a bad idea to print out the course map this wonderful site provides - some of the hole transitions are a bit awkward. If you have the time, play another 18 across the highway at Towne of the best courses in the metroplex!

Pros: This is a fun and easy course that is beginner friendly. Most are under or around 200' feet which gives you a perfect opportunity for plenty of birdies and Aces. Almost all holes are straight, basic shots with the basket right down the middle. Trees come into play adding a little challenge and also providing plenty of shade for hot days. There is a creek running through most of the course adding danger on some holes and they love to eat discs. The course has nice, huge concrete tee pads on every hole and all baskets are in good shape. The park is very cleaned and well maintained with trashcans throughout most of the course. The course flows very well from one hole to hole so navigation around the course is really easy. The parking lot is huge, so parking should never be an issue.
Cons: The baskets seem to be a little bit worn and some signs are missing on some holes.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun course, perfect for people just learning the sport. I had a good time playing here getting warmed up for the much more difficult 18 hole course down the road.

Pros: Great small course. Lots of tree to avoid. The course flows really well and you end up almost exactly where you started. If you lose a disc in the creek, most of the creek is shallow so you should be able to see your disc.
Cons: Quiet a few people play here sometimes so it kind of rushes you. There are other pedestrian that you have to watch out for when you tee off.
Other Thoughts: I believe they have some minis there every weekend. Those would be fun to play in on this course.

Pros: Short highly technical course. This is a great course to work on your short game and your accuracy when throwing.
Cons: Walking distance with roadway right next to you. Floods out a little much
Other Thoughts: Overall I'm going to be returning when I visit family as much as I can. Really good course.
