Pros: I thought this was a pretty good course.
They have a PDGA approved baskets at each of the holes. Wooden post that tell you which hole you are at and a layout that is fun and challenging.
The grass wasn't overgrown and the course seemed to be well maintained. There was even places to sit at on some of the holes.
I went with my family, and my sisters really enjoying playing on the swing set that the church had close to hole 15.
The course also mixed up the holes so that it was challenging for pros but at the same time fun for amateurs. The holes went through some heavily dense woods but then came out for some open shots as well.
Cons: Some of the holes are really short and I wish they had made them a bit longer but it wasn't a deal breaker for me. They still had to cater to amateurs.
The tee boxes were under construction, so we had to throw to the side of where the construction was taking place.
Other Thoughts: Excited to see that they are improving the course and installing concrete boxes. I think that will make the course a whole lot better.
I think this is a fun place to come and spend some time practicing different techniques and precision. The shade also helps a lot during the hotter parts of the year.
Nice little course

Pros: It has "recently" been upgraded to an 18 hole course. The tees and baskets are easy to locate even if you are new to the course. It is very well maintained and on a beautiful piece of church property. It is right off of 75/69 if you are on a road trip from Texas to almost anywhere, OK. as I was. I played the 18 hole layout in 25 minutes without a guide and finished -4.
Cons: The "new" 9 holes in the woods are homemade baskets. They are not bad, very interesting setup with laundry basket type buckets. They work. They are a little less forgiving than a true DG basket which will only make you better if you play this course often. Most of the holes in the trees I found to be a little short. But I am used to playing courses like Z-Boaz, Crossroads of Life and Coyote in TX that have 250- 710ft tree holes. Most of the ones here are under 180. But it was still very entertaining.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend a road trip to play this course, but I would absolutely recommend a stop off if you are already driving down 69 anyway! Fun times. I played on an 84deg day with 66% humidity and finished sopping wet from the sweat. Felt like it was 110 deg easily, still had a blast disc golfing for a few minutes on my 6 hour drive.

Great course for novice level
Pros: -Nice, new baskets(not homemade originally a few years ago they were)
-short course longest hole is No1. at 315 ft.
-great mix of open holes and holes with nice, natural obstacle--Holes no. 3, 5, 7
-1st tee is 50 ft. from parking spaces
-grass is mowed regularly
-great for beginners learning to play
-great eagle chances at holes no. 6, 7 should be easy birdies for anyone that has played a few months
Cons: -it has three par 2's holes number 2, 4, and 9
-no tee boxes. only marked by post with hole #, length and par number plaque
-only a par 26 course.
-I have seen many tarantulas
-the finishing hole no. 9 is unimaginative, plain, and disappointing
Other Thoughts: Most locals play all holes as par 3s for a par 27 course. course is marked as par 26 because of the three par 2's

Alternate 18 Hole Layout
Pros: Now 18 holes! We were lucky to run into some friendly & dedicated local disc golfers who took us through the new 18-hole layout. The older, home-made baskets have been moved into the heavily, HEAVILY wooded areas to the south. Newer, all-metal baskets take their place on the original nine holes.
Cons: Although teepads and pathways for the newly added holes are marked with orange spray paint, one could easily get lost in the woods. Highly recommend contacting the locals if interested in playing the 18-hole layout (look for "Eagle Hill Disc Golf Course" on Facebook).
Other Thoughts: Less than a mile away from the famous Pete's Place restaurant in Krebs--home of Choc Beer! Why not take an Oklahoma disc golf/microbrew road trip?

No Eagles to be had here
Pros: Great tee signs
Scorecards by the course map
Very well kept
A few different looks
Baskets look goofy but they catch (if you aim right)
Work on your midrange/short game
Great place to take newbies/family
Map on scorecard
Favorite Hole(s): #7
Update: Now that there are 18 holes I will do my best to get back and change my review as soon as I can.
Cons: Natural tees
Not very challenging
Not enough risk/reward
Plays near ball field on some holes. (Not a big deal as there aren't many days with others there).
No bathrooms/trashcans (carry in/carry out)
Other Thoughts: All in all this course is a decent attempt by the Scouts. A little fun to be had here. There aren't very meny places to play around there and this is better than not playing imo. If you're near McAlester stop by if you want to work on midrange or for just a quick round or two.

Pros: Very well maintained (when I was there). Scorecards available with maps making it easy to navigate. Starts and ends close to the parking area. Offers pretty good variety of shots for a shorter course. Many short ace possible shots.
It is a fun quick 9 hole course that appears to maintained very well.
Cons: No Tee Pads. Homemade Baskets. No trash cans.
Other Thoughts: It is a private course (FREE TO PLAY) on a church property. There are not many courses in the area so its nice to find one so well maintained. There are no trash cans or restrooms. Be respectful and take your trash with you please.

Fun yet challenging
Pros: Nice signs at the tee to let you know how the hole plays. Easy to follow. Next to a church, so parking isn't a problem. very well kept.
Cons: The baskets seem to be a permanent home-made type of basket.
Other Thoughts: The course consists of mainly par 3's, however the use of the terrain is excellent to provide a couple par 4's. although there were a few extremely short holes, they made them par 2, so you can still play competitively. FUN COURSE!
