Great short - shaded course

Pros: + The shade (next best course is Lake Lewisville)
+ Glorious tall trees on Holes 3-6
+ Well layout excellent use of space
+ Short, but next time I'll try long tees
+ Clean park & concrete tees
+ Challenging creek near by
Cons: - Dry now but after a rain very sticky muddy
- Busy on saturdays & sundays
- Challenging creek along side most holes
- Creek bank is steep and water surprisingly deep, lotta lost discs down there
Other Thoughts: Just threw 18 yesterday, after pulling a ham string, so I wanted short, fairly level course to walk. Threw 4 lay ups (putting range) & felt pretty good. When I was throwing everyday, few summers ago, played partners with a local kid & we threw 9 under. He said he's seen 12 under for the course?

Fun little course

Pros: This course was a blast! I can the community getting a ton of new players having a course like this in the area. Almost all hole are reachable in one throw. Course winds around a steep banked creek that will eat your discs, luckily locals have created paths down for retrieval. Nice tee pads! LOTS OF SHADE!
Cons: Short. Not that it's a real con.... That's the only thing I could think of
Other Thoughts: Would be a get place to get a quick 18 holes in...

Good Quality Practice Course

Review By: brekko
Played: 51  Reviewed: 5  Exp: 9 Years
Pros: This course is an easier, shorter place to hone the finer points of your game. You can easily complete it with 2-3 discs provided you steer clear of the water.

Most holes provide the opportunity to test out different lines and the baskets are all in good shape.

The creek that borders several of the holes provides some degree of difficulty but does not require pinpoint accuracy to avoid.
Cons: Some of the holes are too short or have no obstacles from tee to green and the area itself is not very secluded or "naturey".
Other Thoughts: Great for a short afternoon round without too much exertion. Not great for a sanctioned tournament.

Pros: Short Course, great for working on your short game.
Nice people playing the course, very friendly.
Cons: I put 2 in the creek.
Other Thoughts: Met a guy the locals call "Scuba Ron" who was walking thru the creek and gathering lost discs in the water. He was nice enough to throw my disc back up to me from the creek bed.

 Great for putter practice

- Great shade from the Texas sun
- Many ace-able holes to get your heart pumping
- Tall, mature trees
- Not much tall grass or foliage to lose a disc in
- Plays very fast, if not crowded
- Steep-walled creek in play on a few holes
- Little elevation change
- Few driver-bombable holes
- Crowded
Other Thoughts:
This is a fun little course. It definitely helps me improve my short game, although I miss being able to rip big drives. Nearly every whole is birdie-able, and many ace-able, so if you're just looking to have fun and not challenge yourself too much, this is the course to play.

 Fun but short course

Pros: Course plays very fair for players of all skill levels. Most of the holes are short par 3's with one or two shaping obstacles on any given hole.

17 - Its a longer par 3 with a big built in dogleg left. To me it plays as the best hole of the course.

This course is very family/beginner friendly but the creek is high sloped and not as forgiving as many would hope. While my team never went over the edge we saw at least 4 other groups scale the creek wall to get something from the water. The holes all feel short enough that I think beginners feel that risking it will work out.
Cons: I'd say all but 3 holes are birdie-able for anyone with an average or better arm. While they use the local terrain to the best of its ability there really isn't much variety and most shots are pretty straight forward and not difficult.
Other Thoughts: If you want a fun short course to play this is s good selection. Its not well varietied or particularly tough. It loses a lot of points for being a bit shot simple. If you're looking for a good warm up to this courses across the highway neighbor or a good set of opportunities to make ace runs this is a good selection.

I'd definitely play this course again but its not a destination course for sure.

Pros: Really fun course. Lightly wooded. Two of my friends have aced holes here. We play here as much as we can.
Cons: It gets pretty muddy. And if you throw a disc in the creek when the water is high, kiss it goodbye.

 AC Review

Pros: Short holes.
Great for beginners.
Good acer holes.
Concrete tee pads.
Cons: Creeks that might be up when the water is abundant.
Other Thoughts: I thought this was a great warm up course for Towne Lake. Being a beginner (6 months playing) it gave me great confidience playing it, but at the same time it doesn't challenge you enough I do not believe. Again, fun warm up course with plenty shade.

 Fun little course

Pros: 18 holes with concrete tees. Nice shade over the course from the large trees. Course plays short, mostly flat and open although still provides a decent challenge with the available trees and the creek. Hardly any rough.
Cons: Mud and mosquitoes as is typical with the area. Lacking some signage. Course flow is a little funky for a first timer at the course. Potential for disc loss in the creek.
Other Thoughts: This was a good warm up before heading over to Towne Lake just down the street. Got some ace runs and lots of birdies, so there is some fun to had here. This is an excellent course for beginners to learn the game and different shots. More experienced players can play some safari if the course is fairly empty. This reminds me of the course I learned to play on.
