Pros: Hindman Park DGC holds a great deal of variety for only nine holes because they've invested in two nicely-sized, trapezoidal concrete tee pads for each hole, and an extra-short tee pad on #9 (making it three options there!). Each tee has a sign indicating par and distance, and has the great (and simple) idea of having two PVC rods, so four players can keep their bags hung up off the ground as they tee off. There are benches and all the usual small community park amenities and recreations at hand. The course is ideal for players from the casual through Intermediate levels, as the 19 (!) hole options range from 129 to 357 feet. If you are just trying to play a quick, fun round, you can enjoy the Red tees and go for ace runs and deuces, but if you want to challenge yourself, play the Blues…or do both if you have an hour or so available.

Lines of flight are shaped by the moderately wooded park trees and the excellent use of elevation as you circle the park counter-clockwise, finishing with a signature ninth hole where you can empty your bag on the downhill shots or take advantage of the one shortie (Pink) tee. You will have the chance to try a lot of direct routes, but there are places where left- and right-turning throws are best.

The flow of the course is relatively self-explanatory, if you know there are a plethora of tees to choose from. I always grab a map online when I can, just in case. You'll want to go to the left after the uphill 1st hole, cross the driveway bridge to get from 5 to 6, and look to the clearing in the woods for the long 7 tee.
Cons: Playing the paved areas as OB will add more challenge, but it will never really be a traditionally difficult, tournament-style course. There actually could be some steps installed on the steep slopes for holes 1 and 9. Some folks might get a little too enthusiastic on a couple of holes and wind up in the private yards that border the park. With multiple tees, some kind of next tee signage would help first timers. And finally, as with most community park courses, the disc golf does have the potential to cross paths with other park patrons, so players need to be cautious.
Other Thoughts: Played a late December round at dawn here on a seven state road trip. As a traveler looking for a short, but fun course, Hindman was a treat to play.

Pros: Tees were well marked.
Small park
Great course for just passing by and need to stretch your legs a bit.
Cons: backyards offered challenges
Other Thoughts: I left a bag of discs on the Hindman Community Park sign...we played the course while passing through Little Rock on our way home to the Dallas Texas area. We found a disc and called the local number and hid his disc in a tree and asked him to check on the bag I left. Both the bag and his disc were not recovered. Any one know if there is a lost and found?

Pros: Its a fun short course. It has great elevation change and very open. Baskets are still new so they catch well. They also have a spot to stop and cook out. They have 2 pads for each hole so that can make it an 18 hole course
Cons: Some houses are somewhat close to the course and its a little confusing the first time out. The holes are pretty short so only really need a fairway driver, mid-range, and putter.
Other Thoughts: Its fun and very easy on the arm so you can do a 36 hole round or do 18 there then hop over to Morehart and do another 18 in under 4 hours.

Pros: fairly easy course love to play it for a quick 18 after work. Has good elevation changes. The Neighborhood has really cleaned this park up the locals are talking about putting in another 9 in the woods off hole #5 where they are also talking about putting in hiking trails and setting up climbing routes on a rock outcrop.
Cons: very short course to play and tee signs would be helpfull for first timers playing this course

Pros: 2 sets of tee pads per hole.

good use of the little elevation

good use of the trees making natural fairways

Hole 2 and 9 were great holes for different reasons. (from the longs)
Cons: 2 of the holes are a little too close to fenced in backyards.

The shorts are short.
Other Thoughts: It was a nice day to play disc golf when I played, I really enjoyed my round and wound up meeting some of the group that got the course put in. They hope to have more holes soon and maybe even another course nearby.

It is one of the best 9 hole courses I have played.

Pros: Seems to be a good course for beginners. The holes are laid out in a big circle so you don't have to walk far from hole to the next tee.

The terrain is varied and changes with small hills and depressions. Trees are sparse but make an appearance on some holes.

Great course for a quick play or go around a second time and use the alternate tee pads for an 18 hole game.
Cons: Brush is in the process of being cleared away, but the fairways are somewhat defined.

It's possible to lose your disc to someones back yard on hole 3 if you're not careful.

Some tee pads are missing the markers (AKA painted orange rocks). Also, the tees aren't clearly defined with a hole number and can take a moment to find your first time.
