Pros: This is referred to as the Dogwood course locally. It is a true test of accuracy and distance that will challenge even the most seasoned professional disc golfer. It requires every shot shape in the bag; dogleg left, dogleg right, straight shots, even a chance at an overhand or two. Excellent use of elevation where possible, as well as water when possible (even though rain is necessary to fill in the creek beds). Every hole drains like a champ because of the sand, except for number 3. This is an amazing hike through the woods, with benches and trash cans everywhere. A true championship caliber course with concrete tee pads on every hole, as well as short and long pin locations on every hole except numbers 4, 10, and 17 (all true par 4's). With several tournaments being held here now, there has been touch up trimming done, along with a significant amount of trees removed making every hole fair with it's line(s) to the basket.
Cons: I wish it had better signage, that's it. Zero significant cons here. Yes, it is not "beginner friendly" and the warning sign at the first hole lets you know that. It's not a joke. If you miss your line and hit a tree, it's possible the punishment could outweigh the crime. You just have to be accurate. The rough is very rough in several places and you will have to pitch out in some situations. This is also a true test of your mental capacity to have a short memory and flush bad shots or bad holes.
Other Thoughts: It's cart friendly, so take em. It takes you way away from the parking lot with no chance to refill any water bottles mid round, so take what you need with you. Extra water in the summer is necessary, it's brutally hot, but still the most shaded of the 3 courses at Lindsey Park. I've got par on the short pins at 58 and 64 on the long pins for the Dogwood. Please use the trash cans, the local club has to do all the maintenance except the mowing the city does. Lindsey Park is an incredible place to play disc golf with 3 very very good courses in one place. Check it out soon!!!

Pros: concrete tee boxes , multiple pin placements, pro level course, beautiful fairways, course stays dry , plenty of shade, very challenging. world class course.
Cons: hole 3 is the only hole that gets semi-wet, every other hole stays dry when it rains thanks to the sand.
Other Thoughts: short placements 55-60 real good score, long placements par 63 one of the hardest courses in all of texas. strongly advise playing this unique course. some people complain it's too hard and too wooded but you just have to learn new shots and lean on good placement shots.

Pros: This course is amazing. This is a very tough course, but for me, that is an attractive quality. There are tons of older trees here making this setting rather tranquil. For the hottest part of the day this is the course you want to be playing. The heavily wooded and shaded hopes can knock the temperature down quite a few degrees. There are all kinds of shots and disc navigation needed to play here. The pin placements are in rather clever spots on many of the holes. The multiple pins can really change things up a bit. Many of them, will even change the layout from lefty to righty holes and vice-versa. The few creeks and well made bridges make for some nice risk/reward choices. The tee pads are big concrete slabs and well placed. There is some great seating and trashcans at many of the tees. The tee signs have the usual footage for both pin placements and there are lots of small next tee signs posted to really help you find your way. The park has portable restrooms at the parking lot.
Cons: This course is not beginner friendly. The tee signs do not show you where the pins are. Some poisonous plants (ivy, sumac, oak,) around, but that is at most of shaded courses in the DFW area. That is all I can think of.
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor is outstanding here. This is tough and so much fun. This is worth a drive from just about anywhere. You have to love that this course has a stone monument with some tournament winners and years listed on it. The fact that there are 3 courses in this one park makes for a great outing. This is however the cream of that crop. If you like it difficult and figuring holes out like puzzles, this is your place!

Extra notes: The wildlife inside this particular course is rather intense. I saw many snakes, lizards, and other reptiles as well as the regular garden variety furry little varmints. ;) So just keep your eyes open. The locals call this the "Dogwood Course". It even has a warning sign at the beginning stating that it is a professional course and not meant for beginners. This sign matches the sign from the Dogwood ball golf course. It is obviously some kind of inside joke that we are all now part way in on. ;)
