Pros: Nice, very well maintained park.
Top of the line baskets.
Pro and Rec tees on every hole. The Pro tees are very long (for run ups) and make the hole play significantly more difficult than the Recs.
Very clearly marked for navigation. I played by myself and had no problem finding tees and baskets on every hole. Tee pads had hole #, distance and an arrow pointing to the basket painted on them. Baskets had red painted on the them in the direction of the next tee.
Very nice restroom next to the fairway on #3.
Mature trees and elevation changes used cleverly by the designer. The baskets were usually guarded by large trees at the approach angles. Most of the elevation changes went downhill and the uphill holes were not punishing.
New bridges across the small (dry today) creek.
For those that like to air it out, mostly open from the tees.
Holes are separated, so errant throws won't affect players on another hole.
Unless you forget your disc and leave it behind, you will not lose a disc on this course.
Cons: With the exception of the very short first and ninth holes, not a technical course. There aren't obstacles near the tees to force lines. For the shot maker, the fairways are too wide open.
The playground on #5 is on the inside of a dogleg left. It's dangerous for children to play there.
There's no rough to make you pay for an errant shot. A good player will easily recover from a bad tee shot. (Bad shots aren't punished).
All courses in west Texas have stickers.
Some people might not like the long walks between holes.
Other Thoughts: Fun course for a quick round. I played in less than an hour. You don't have to search for your discs (no rough).

All of the trees in the park are large, older trees. Planting young trees to create fairways would increase the fun factor (already pretty high) for this course and make it pretty awesome in the future.

Right now, it's a big bombers dream course.
