Pros: -If played from the long tees (which are hard to find), this course is more fun and challenging

-good signs

-good baskets

-hole lengths are OK for beginners

-beautiful, clean park!

-nice pond
Cons: -most holes are relatively short and not challenging. They could have used the trees, elevation changes and other open areas of the park to make this course MUCH more fun. It's kind of disappointing. You can make a better round with safari golf here than the original course layout

-There is a fair amount of foot traffic around the course and the walking path does get in the way of the fairways. PLEASE LOOK BEFORE YOU THROW! Safety first!

-No tee pads

-Holes 1 & 2 are in an awkward position compared to the rest of the course. It's a long walk back from 9 to 1, but the park is nice enough that you don't mind it too much.
Other Thoughts: I would like to see some locals remake this course into something really cool. It's worth playing if you are in town but I wouldn't go too far out of my way to play it. The 9 hole course in Tuttle is much more fun and not very far from Chickasha.

Pros: Great tee signs
Great baskets
Bathrooms
Never crowded
Quick enough to play twice
Plenty of parking
Well kept up
Multiple tees for most holes(longs are hard to find)
A great place to work on midrange shjots
Plenty of shade
Great park to bring family or newbies
Great park for night golf(especially right now. Christmas lights)
Alittle elevation change( not much but a little)
While you are there throw off of the dam to create your own elevation shot. You can shoot at #3, #5, #9, #8, #7. If you need a long hole try #4 or #6 from the dam. Wow.

Favorite hole(s): #4, #9
Cons: Natural tees
Not much in the way of a challenge
Walking path is in play on a few holes
Transition from 2-3 (walk across the street and parking lot to behind the dam.)
Could easily have had a couple of longer holes
Not very many trees in play
Other Thoughts: This is a fun little 9-hole course. It calls me back everytime I am in Chickasha. Make the stop if you happen to be in the area. But don't travel very far just to play this course. If you come you will enjoy yourself and relax like you wouldn't believe. While you're there feed the ducks or go fishing. Why not?

All in all lots of fun. At Christmas time the main park is full of light displays but it doesn't affect the DG much. On hole one (the giant tree) and two just be careful. The rest of the course is not affected at all.

Pros: This small course is set in a beautiful municipal park. It has a large lake with lots of geese and ducks, exercise trails, playground equipment for the kids, and barbeque pits and picnic tables for weekend cookouts.
The holes are well marked with easy to see signs, complete with hole number, distance, and par. And the baskets are all new and shiny. The course is very easy to navigate, and it provides for a restful recreational round. Several shady spots, adorned with nice benches, await for your resting needs.
This a great park to bring the family and to play a recreational game with your children. I also think that this park would be a good introductory course to those that are unschooled in the sport. The manicured grass and trimmed sidewalks make for an exceptionally appealing park.
Cons: The course itself...

No challenge to any golfers other than children and adults trying the sport for the first time. Mostly, holes were a short, straight, or semi-straight shot to the basket with very little in the way of obstacles or challenges.
There was obviously a lot of work done installing something analagous to a tee pad. Unfortunately, the pads they put in will serve more as a danger to spraining ankles than as a teeing suface usable by disc golfers.
The course crosses over the jogging path a number of times. It was light enough today for it not to matter, but I can envision times that discing would be difficult.
Where you end up at the completion of hole #9, is a long walk back to where hole # 1 starts again.
Other Thoughts: I enjoyed a relaxing game there this afternoon. The setting was extremely scenic, which made the course look even more attractive. There were some small changes in elevation, although nothing dramatic. Just a gentle downhill run on holes 7 and 8.
When you finish hole #2, the tee for #3 can be found across the street near the north east corner of the lake. The fitness trail runs around the area north of the lake and the remaining holes follow it.
The course was very well taken care of and It was a pleasure to play, but there's nothing about that course that could be called a challenge. Don't let that keep you away though. It deservers as much support as we can give it. Bring the family or some friends that are new to golf and enjoy some approach practice or make a couple Ace Runs.
