fun short finesse course
6 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -great piece of land, lots of woods, elevation, & water
-very fun layout, lots of short but tight placement shots
-nice concrete tees, new DGA baskets, details signs at each tee
-plenty of parking, lot right next to holes 1 & 18
-very close to Bill Allen, good pair of courses for a day of discing
-new but already has paths worn in between holes, navigation is easy
-excellent course for kids and beginners
Cons: -grass and weeds growing quickly with the spring rains, discs can be hard to find in the tall grass. not too problematic since the holes are short but something to think about on the tee
-would be great to have some well-placed trash cans around the course
-very short, people looking to bomb drivers will be bored here
Other Thoughts: This is a fun short course on a great little piece of park land. The front 9 plays through some tight woods where slight elevation changes come into play on many holes. There is a good variety between right and left turning shots and there are well-protected baskets. The back 9 is slightly longer with mostly open shots but a small creek comes into play on 5 of the holes.
The shots are short but not necessarily easy. You need to hit the right lines off the box to get on the green and have a good look at the basket. Don't be fooled by the pictures here, the holes get much tighter when the foliage starts to fill in. It will be like 2 different courses between winter and summer. Overthrowing on the front 9 usually means you are in the rough without a clear putt. You really have to be accurate and manage your distance to score well. My favorites were Hole 11, a big anhyzer shot downhill to a basket just in front of the creek; Hole 5, a short downhill shot to a very well protected basket; and Hole 18 the one longer hole, a big hyzer through a channel of trees to a semi-protected basket.
I had a blast playing here. It's not a place you'll want to drive across town to play often but it is worth checking out and definitely worth playing if you are playing at Bill Allen the same day. If you're having a good day you can shoot well below par but it is easy to rack up 3's or 4's if you're not hitting your lines off the tee.
Much better manicured fairways now with cut grass and lots of the foliage removed. The front 9 is a little more open now and the back 9 have defined fairways with taller rough. The course has clearly gotten a lot of play already and is in much better shape.

Fun New Course
Pros: Great course for newer throwers, kids, or those more experienced that want to work on the short technical game. A few wide open, but otherwise lots of trees and water to mess with. Great use of some elevation changes. Good concrete tees and pretty nice signs.
Cons: No place to really air out shots(but Bill Allen is right up the road). Loads of weeds, and no trash cans. Lots of noise with all the barking dogs at the dog park, but you start to tune it out.
Other Thoughts: Fun course that the experience player can play through quickly. Get 2 rounds in in about 1-1.5 hours if carrying minimal gear. The weeds suck, but after a rain it is expected. Plus with people using the course more the foot traffic will help knock them down. I went in expecting a short technical course and was pretty happy. Just park down by the baseball fields, not the dog park. The dog park is by hole 16 and the parking is farther away.

Nice Practice Course
Pros: Short course, but with a good variety of lines and elevation. Won't provide much of a challenge for the experienced player on a calm day, but in the wind, you'll realize how bad you are at approaching an uphill basket 175ft away with a crosswind.
Great tee signs, easy to navigate.
Cons: Rough is still pretty rough. Might have to search for a disc a while in taller weeds.

Great start to what will be a great family park
Pros: Excellent use of elevation.
NIce new baskets.
Excellent place to work on your putt and approach.
Great to take your smaller children to to learn the game. Great use of elevation considering the land used.
Bill Allen just a mile or so up the road for you to streatch your arm out.
Cons: No trashcans. Lets face it, discgolfers love their beer and alot of them forget to throw them away, having trashcans is a friendly reminder. Anything that you carry in should be carried out, but I can see a litte problem rise with out some trash cans. The Rough is very rough. Swamps and prickley things everywhere. Fairways and greens are poorly groomed.
Other Thoughts: I am not going to be the one that complains about this course being short. I knew that going into it. I was happy with how technical a lot of the holes were based on the land they had to work on. I would not say that a regular player would be board here, he might finish 7 down, but had a lot of fun ace runs. Best thing this is for is to get younger kids into the game. I will bring my young girls back again.

Pros: Nice little beginner course to get the city involved and interested in the sport! The course is very short which is good for those trying to learn and even for those upper level players working on the short game. Time was taken with not only the tees, signs, and baskets, but the land was rough and needed alot of work to get it ready. Nice concrete pads on all holes and the signs are helpful as well. Navigation isnt an issue either. There are 2 pin placements on all the holes that look like they could be interesting in the furture. Ok, like said before, the couse is short. For upper level players, you wont need anything but a mid, a putter, and maybe a fairway for 18. There are enough trees that make this course more then a pitch and putt too. The elevation is used well here and makes most of those holes not gimme by any means. You have to be accurate in your short game to score well and if you cant putt there are bogeys out there
Cons: The course is SHORT! The water that is out there is pretty nasty and smells too. Can get very muddy and holds the water too. There is still some rough out there that needs to be cleaned but Im sure it will get taken care of.
Other Thoughts: This course is ok. Despite people saying they are going to shoot -18 and hit 5 aces a round, tell me when your going out there because I want to witness it. And yes I was very stoked to have a top notch course next door. Hey this isnt it, but it is a great beginner course and it doesnt need to get punished for being that!

Pros: Really nice park. The park is a beautiful park that I really expected more out of. It is an ace race. Great fun if you are looking to only carry a buzz and a putter or something. The tee pads are awesome, not that you need them. Nice signs.
Cons: Entirely too short. Even newbies should be bored here. This park is entirely too nice to put this joke in here. I am not sure what the goal was here. I have played better 9 holes. Maybe I just got left out on the memo about what this course was supposed to be for.
Other Thoughts: Unless you live in Frisco, and are totally bored with other courses, don't bother. Unless you need an ego boost or something, or just really want to shoot 18 down or get an ace. Again, really nice surrounding park, which had me thinking they were going to put a good course in here. Nope. It is the equivalent to a putt putt ball golf course. Only thing it is missing is a giant windmill and clown that spits your putters back out to you.
