Pros: -front 9 has lots of trees in play, requires line shaping
-discatchers in decent condition, concrete tees, good signs, benches
-very minor elevation changes in play on a few holes
-contrast between front and back will appeal to some, will teach less experienced players 2 sets of skills (accuracy, distance)
-easy to navigate
-clean, family-oriented park
Cons: -back 9 is mostly wide open, very boring (except 10, 17, 18; those are decent)
-no stand out holes
-open areas on back 9 can hold water, there were large areas with 2-3 inches of water when i played
Other Thoughts: Wild Horse Park is not a bad course but there is not much to say about it. The front 9 is full of evergreens that require some line shaping or operating under a ceiling while the back 9 is mostly wide open, longer holes.
The equipment is in good condition and concrete tees are a plus. The signs have a basic map of the hole layout. The park itself has many other amenities including a pool; great if you have the family in tow.
There are not really any standout holes and overall I felt pretty indifferent about the course and it's layout. I think I might have felt a bit better about the course if it were not for the wide open holes on the back 9. There is so much available space that I don't think it was necessary to have these boring filler holes. 400-500 feet or not, wide open holes are no fun and no challenge. It would have been great if the designers were able to make use of the lake to make that section of the back 9 more interesting.
It is nice to have this course to fill out the gap on the west side of the OKC area but personally I would prefer Route 66 or Dolese. I would probably play the front 9 twice if this were my local course.

disappointed- needs input
Pros: this course has some major flaws, but its young so hopefully they will correct some things...
-great tee pads, perfect size and texture
-brand new discatchers
-front 9 short and tight, back 9 are mostly long and open
-requires nearly every shot in your bag throughout the 18..
-trees shape the course, no brush to speak of
-upshots and putting are essential for a good score
-course is away from other park goer's
-next tee signs were helpful tho numerous signs were uprooted
-majority of the holes offer numerous lines, the holes that dont are lacking for sure
Cons: course needs some work.
-hole 2 is a 90 degree throw from the box and is a very short hole, 3's tee is directly in the path of the implied line. no mando could even help
-hole 4's tee is a jump putt behind 3's basket, also a short hole, so is the case for several more holes.
-if this course ever gets backed up, people on tee boxes WILL get domed, no question.
-numbers on baskets dont face the tee, which caused for a lot more walking than should have
-long walk from 9-10, not a big deal, but a little confusing as youre walking past the road, a playground, and walking paths- seeing other baskets.
-no signs guided direction from tee to pins
-hole 12 throws 500' directly in between 2 baskets equal distance apart. goes to the right side basket. wouldve been easier had i brought binoculars..
-layout could have been more exciting had they utilized the adjacent pond instead of throwing in an open field for holes 12-14.
Other Thoughts: from the moment i pulled up i was confused. i started on number ten, as i walked around for ten minutes towards wrong baskets.
-i wont be treking from north of okc to play this course unless im randomly in the area. i would have rather gone to woodson in all honesty.
-hopefully someone with some disc sense will step up and make some changes to this young course.
