Fun Course in Clean Public Park
Pros: TL;DR - Fun, uncrowded, newer course in a nice park.
- Park is very clean, family-friendly, and scenic
- Not nearly as crowded as other local courses
- Nice signage, baskets, and benches near the teepads
- Most holes are well-designed and offer multiple lines to the basket
Cons: TL;DR - Several boring holes in a windy field full of sandburs.
- Several long, open, boring holes on the back nine
- Large field on the back nine is full of stickers (sandburs)
- Wind is almost always a major factor, particularly on the holes bordering the north side of the park
- Trees on the front nine are almost all evergreens, so discs tend to get stuck easily in their branches
Other Thoughts: The front nine will really become great as the trees mature, but as of now (2015), it's not a course well-suited to beginners, as the low trees make for difficult lines. Bring a baseball to retrieve discs stuck in branches.

Pros: Well the immediate pro that i noticed was the huge restrooms once you pull into the parking lot by the playground. That is until i actually went inside the men's room and almost passed out due to the intense smell of fecal matter. The tees are all very nice and all signage is excellent condition, thanks Lowes. Everyone complains about hole 2 tee pad not pointing directly at the hole, but it's SUPPOSED to be that way all shots can't be straight ahead it gets boring. All three times i've played here its been windier than Chicago, im talking 20 mph steady with 40 mph gusts, which as you may imagine makes the course that much more difficult. I don't know if the wind is a constant factor in Mustang or if i just played on bad days. All three times I've been to this course its been pretty much abandoned, probably because of the wind, but still nice to have the course to yourself.
Cons: Aside from the mens room and the wind, it doesn't have many cons to complain about. The par 5's could be par 4's if not 3's, but im not complaining, extra room for a birdie.
Other Thoughts: I guess don't go on windy days would be half the point of this review, the other half would be that the restrooms smell horrible. In reality it's Oklahoma so windless days are at a premium but the wind didnt seem to affect any shots of mine (RHBH thrower) but my friend's shot's were massacred at holes 2, 11, 16 (LHBH thrower).

Front 9 focuses on accuracy, Back 9 focuses on distance
Pros: This is a good 18 holer in a well maintained public park. The tee pads are excellent and there are even little signs indicating where the next tee is located. The front 9 uses the cedar trees well. Holes #4 and #5 have protected baskets. Hole #6 has heavy cedars in the fairway, shoot low or try a tomahawk shot. All the holes on the front nine are fairly short. #9 is a pretty open shot and will allow you a chance to air it out a bit for the first time. #10 is a slightly uphill shot. #11 is a fairly wide open hole going downhill towards the pond to the west. #12 is a wide open shot with a slight dogleg right. #13 is another open hole with a slightly protected basket. #14 is a wide open hole. #15 is the most wide open hole I have ever played on. The basket is literally in the middle of a field with not one obstacle. #16-18 finally provide trees to contend with. Be careful on #16 not to put your drive into the softball field. I was lucky my shot hit the bottom of the fence.
Cons: There are no tee signs with distances. If they were to be added it would help. Also there were stickers in the fairways, not heavy and is to be expected when it doesn't rain. The walk between #9's basket and #10's tee is rather long and drags the flow of the game down. Also what is the deal with #2's tee pad? As mikethegoalie said it points nowhere near the basket. There must be a mando somewhere, didn't quite understand that one.
Other Thoughts: There is a walking trail that winds around the back 9 so heads up when playing. This course has a good mix of long and short shots. There are more obstacles on the front 9 than the back nine. When the wind is blowing hard, as it often does, holes #11-15 could be brutal. They have used what is available and have made a pretty decent course here. As of my visit I saw about 5 groups playing here so they must have done something right.

Another course in the OKC area
Pros: -Brand New Innova DISCatcher Baskets
-Nice Concrete Tee Pads
-Easy to follow, well marked
-Very well maintained
-Front 9 allows for more technical short shots and Back 9 is more for bombing it
-Plenty of parking
-Restrooms are near holes 1 and 18
Cons: -Trees on the front 9 tend to catch your disc, I hope your a good climber or 9 feet tall
-The walk from 9 to 10 is kind of long
Other Thoughts: It is nice to have a another course to go to. So far it wasn't too crowed.
They are slowy adding to the course as far as new tee signs and benches. As well as trash cans. But that still doesn't fix the back 9. It's too wide open.
