A Refreshed Course
Pros: Major changes (autumn 2010) on this course make for a rewarding, new challenge. Layout is much improved with better planned obstacles, requiring more thought and technique.
Wooded park setting is enjoyable, offering trees as the main obstacles without creating impassable walls (except maybe for hole 6).
Holes 5, 6, and 7 offer especially interesting tee-offs. Hole 6 is very memorable and extremely challenging.
The course offers an overall good mix of long throws and technique shots. On first play, I was somewhat frustrated (mainly from hole 6) but came to appreciate the design and difficulty with more play. An impressive DG challenge for a small town like Bryan.
Cons: The course winds through a series of soccer fields, which create a few annoying obstacles like a fence along hole 1 and the fields themselves throughout. During peak soccer season, the course may be frustrating due to games and spectators. With that being said, this course is certainly possibly to play without going onto a field... you just need to be accurate with your shots.
The tee box for hole 5 can be difficult to find coming from hole 4. Head toward the ice rink from the basket of hole 4. The tee box is near a collection of trees.
As previously mentioned, hole 6 is very challenging as one has to navigate through some tight tree alleys for nearly 600 feet. This hole will become more enjoyable as the alley becomes wider with more play.
Other Thoughts: When the back 9 baskets are placed in the spring of 2011, this course will be legit. The back offers a range of holes from wide open to heavily wooded shots.
I would recommend this course for both the casual disc golfer who is just looking to get outdoors, and the pro looking to work on technique and finesse. The course is well-marked and easy to find from the car. Parking is plentiful and free.

Improved and Still Improving Course
Pros: This disc golf course in Bryan's Recreation Park is partially wooded and partially open. Its nine baskets provide a good mix of challenging wooded shots and clearer distance attempts. The new design is an improvement. The signs at the tees which show the layout of each hole are a neat feature as well.
Cons: The course winds around many soccer fields and walking paths, so a disc thrower must use care not to get too wild with his throws. Due to its location, there are no hills or water hazards to provide more interest or challenge. One hole near Townline Road is too long in my opinion.
Other Thoughts: With an additional nine holes planned for 2011, this course should become really nice. The newer holes are located in both open fields and the mature oaks of Bryan's Moore Park. Then there should be an even better mix of surroundings for the entire 18 holes.
