Pros: This is the only course in Conway, so for a Conway resident like myself it is the only local option. The baskets are nice, and there is always a well mowed path from hole to hole and on most of the open shots. There is a good variety of shots--some are long and open, while others require finesse--but there are no heavily wooded shots.
Cons: The course has very thick woods lining the fairways, and in some places the thorns and brush are too thick to ever have hope of finding a disc thrown off-course. There is currently a construction project of some sort in the way of some of the holes. The course is still open and doable, but it is definitely an inconvenience. The 9th hole ends at the furthest point from the parking lot, so a round of 9 holes ends with a long walk back.
Other Thoughts: I only have a year of experience, and I have only played about 6 courses, but this is not the most convenient course due to its length, construction, thick brush, etc. However, the holes are pretty well designed, and it is a fun course. It's at least worth stopping by to play.

Fun, but needs some work

Pros: This course is pretty easy to get to. The baskets are in great shape and are very nice. The course is a pretty challenging course. There is a good sign by the parking that tells events and has some other information.
Cons: The course itself seems unfinished: no tees, just grass with flags in each corner to show the tee, hole 9 finishes very far from the parking lot. Also, navigation was a mess. It took us at least 15 minutes to find the tee boxes all together. A few times, to get to the next hole, we had to cross a fairway to get there. No tee signs at all. Deathly feeling afterward because of the massive Arkansas summer heat and lack of shade/ benches.
Other Thoughts: I really thought that this course would be better than it actually was. I was playing Burns park red in North Little Rock when a designer of the course was teeing at the next hole and he told us that they were only getting started and that we should go back in about a year or so and play it again. I know i will. I really hope they make this a 18 hole and make it better than it is which i believe it will become better as time goes on and the designers work on it more. The course itself was fun but unless im passing through the campus, its not somewhere i would want to go back to.
