Fun 9 holes
2 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Good for beginners, concrete tees, very well kept park
Cons: -Only 9 holes, although that's ok, not everything can be 18.
-Water, especially right now with all the rain. I lost a disc to the creek off tee 5, and there are 3-4 holes where it is REALLY easy to lose a disc with one poor shot.
Other Thoughts: This course is super close to my home, so I am able to get in a round after work a couple times a week. It's never too crowded in the afternoons, and is at a really nice park for bigger events. I've only been playing a couple months and I didn't feel overwhelmed playing this course.

- Tight, challenging lines
- Good practice for accuracy, shot shaping
- Concrete teepads
- Not difficult to navigate
- Heavily wooded, shaded
- Peaceful rural setting, with duck pond, horses and cows
- Multi-use park with other facilities
- Only 9 holes
- Pedestrian cross-traffic
- Little elevation change
Contrary to other reviews, this would not be a great beginner's course. It's not long, but the lines are very tight. You can leave your distance drivers at home, but don't assume you're going to get a lot of easy birdies.

fun 9 holes
Pros: -fun and challenging holes
-lots of trees and a creek in play
-uses the slight elevation well
-nice baskets and adequate signs
-little underbrush, looks like most of the poison ivy has been neutralized
-NEW concrete tee pads
Cons: -can get quite muddy after a bit of rain
-possibly a bit too challenging for the beginner, too bad for a 9 hole course in a smaller town.
The new concrete pads are in and they are great. The new location for tee 1 back by the pond is cool too. Gives a bit of elevation to the tee shot. The course looks great but some of the poison ivy may be returning.
This is a pretty fun and rather challenging 9 hole course. Most of the holes have a significant number of trees and a bad kick can leave you in the creek, over the OB fence, or with no upshot. Not a lot of easy hyzers, you have to carve your line through the obstacles.
I can't imagine the course ever being crowded. If it were, there are a few close fairways and the entire area of the course is not that big. Still shouldn't be a problem though since you probably won't be just trying to bomb it on these holes.
Another course well worth playing in Ft. Worth. Not a destination but certainly worth it if you are in the area.

Sanora Park Rundown!!!
Pros: -Hole variety -- long, short, open, treed, rights and lefts
-Lots of shade
-Hazard variety -- OB fenced propety, road, water.
-Great surrounding park
-Lots of parking
Cons: -No pads
-Very muddy when wet
-Looks as though they're still doing a lot of construction out there (park construction)
-Currently, there is ton of poison ivy on the banks of the creek as well as other places on the course, so be careful!!!
Other Thoughts: Being that this is a BRAND NEW course, there's still a lot of cleaning up of the course to do -- brush, poison ivy, tall grass, etc. BUT this is to be expected guys and gals when courses start blossoming. NO course started out top-notch.
Great little course with variety. Front starts out fairly easy and wide open, then some of the holes blow-up for some killer difficulty though trees and along creeks.
This course has great potential and can't wait to play it again.
Makes for a nice warm-up round before playing near-by courses: Veterans, Bicentennial, Z-Boaz, Greenbriar.
Keep your eyes on this course everyone!!!

Another great nine holes in the Metroplex.
Pros: While it starts out fairly easy, the second half can be quite challenging. Great place to hone hitting lines and practicing shot placement. This course will entertain all skill levels from beginner to advanced. Beautiful park has restrooms, water fountains, play ground, water park and a pond. Kid friendly and dog friendly.
Cons: We've all played a new course so I won't waste your time telling you about dirt tees and no signage, it's easy to figure it out. Watch for foot traffic on sidewalks.
1. Decent opening hole as it is only a 275-300 ft field shot (fyi my sense of distance can be off at times so take all my yardages with a grain of salt) with no obstacles. A RHBH hyzer route will have to carry the parking lot while being mindful of the consistent South wind. Briar "rough" with slight drop off 15 feet past basket punishes long throws.
2. ~300 foot dog leg right with plenty of room on the left and a well defined rough on the right. Left to right cross wind. Skinny routes on the right will have to contend with a handful of trees along the right side of the fairway.
3. Another left to right hole, found a RHFH over stable hyzer seemed to work well. Maybe 150 feet? Downward elevation change 15 feet before basket so any drive that comes short will have to deal with a downhill putt. Basket protected off the box by a few small trees in front and long drives will have to deal with a fir on their comeback putt.
4. Another short dinker hole, only this time with a fairway congested with trees (imagine a PuttPutt version of Gateway). Less than 100 feet. Pasture fence on right adds element of O.B. (the fence appears to have an electric component to it if the stroke penalty wasn't enough to deter you from crossing it).
5. Great hole, split fairway that will hopefully teach someone who doesn't know how, to thrown an "s" shot. I'd put it around 400 feet. Any errant shots or redirects to the right will flirt with the fence O.B. again. Slight elevation drop to basket which has a creek ~40 feet behind it, again punishing deep shots. This is the hole which cements the fact that the course designer s knew what they were doing and executed it well.
6. Just about shares the fairway with six as this is the turnaround hole. ~400 feet. Creek on right. Watch for bees in the gnarly tree in the center of the fairway just off the box. Like the previous hole, this hole demands shot placement. Straight fair way with a slight dogleg right 70 feet from the basket. Basket well protected by small grove of trees with sidewalk O.B. right/behind.
7. Was not sure exactly where the pad would be for this hole, so we played what we thought looked like the line desired by the designers. A longer, ~375 feet, left to right. Plays over creek with a low ceiling/tunnel (the first time around we went 3 for 3 into the drink : ). Once over the creek, the fairway widens into what appears to possibly be temporary parking for the ball fields (there was a dude chillin in a mini van on the right side of the fairway so keep an eye out). Creek does follow right side of fairway and again will come into play on deep up shots.
8. The course shortens up again here. 100-125 feet. Either a RHFH hyzer or RBBH putter turn shot with just a touch of fade. Rough on right and downhill elevation past the basket.
9. This was the only confusion we found on the course. There were two posts between the basket for eight and the basket for nine. We weren't sure if they were long/short for nine or possible the extra was an alt. for seven? So, 9 long; 350-375 feet, congested fairway on left, dry creek bed along right which appears the easiest route to the basket. 9 short; 275ish feet. RHBH hyzer route to basket. O.B. fence on right comes into play from both boxes.
