Pros: Very easy to find where the tees and holes are, and there really aren't too many hazards to worry about losing discs in.
Cons: Not really challenging. If one isn't careful, a disc can easily go into traffic on the 8th hole.
Other Thoughts: There's no surprise that there's only one course in El Paso, and that it is a completely average course with no frills. It's good for beginners, but not much of a challenge for anyone with experience. If you're looking to go throw the discs around and don't want to drive out of town, this is your spot. It's playable, not the worst course out there, but nothing to tell your friends from out of town about.

Not cutting it

Pros: Access and Price. The chance to exercise your imagination.
Cons: Almost everything.
Other Thoughts: This course is horrible. When I visit I find myself trying to invent shots that offer me some obstacles. This course offers very little to challenge even the newest player. Why this course rates better than the dead Album Park course, I couldn't guess. Not that Album was great, but at least the trees allowed one to practice shots with actual obstacles.

Pros: The DG course in Lionel Forti Park utilizes the entire park. There are two sets of tees, the Blues (Longs) and the Reds (Shorts). I was short on time and daylight so I played from the Reds. Once I get orientated, the course was pretty simple to navigate. All I had to do was to look around for the red pole sticking out of the ground. The poles gives the hole #, distance and points to the basket. The pads are natural and are pretty rough and worn in places.
There were a couple of fun ACE runs from the REDS. # 5 is 251' downhill. You just need to put a little hyser on your shot to clear a post. Unfortunately, the West Texas wind put a lot of hyser on my shot.
The course starts and finishes at the same parking lot.
Cons: The baskets are showing their age. The natural pads are pretty rough in places. Luckily, I don't think this course gets a lot of play. At 6 PM on a lovely Friday night, I had the course to myself.
I didn't really like Red # 3 which has you throwing over the baseball field. There was a team practicing so I attempted to roll around the outfield fence. Just trying to be a good citizen!
Other Thoughts: I was pleasantly surprised by this course. The wind was blowing pretty hard at times but I understand that's pretty standard fare for playing in West Texas so get used to it. The course is in a nice hilly park, fairly green and grassy for hereabouts. I wish I would have had the time to play from the Blues!

Pros: Multiple tee boxes and distance changes. Played it early in the morning (9-11) and had the whole park to myself.
Cons: Didn't like hole 9 since you have to throw across the street plus not sure what the mando's were on that hole.
Other Thoughts: Overall the course is much, much better then the old one at Album park.
great updates to course

Pros: both red and blue tees make this course great for all skill levels.
lots of long drives
Cons: park is used for other events other than golf and its sad that noone after these events cleans up there trash
Other Thoughts: had a blast on my tour of the course with its designer played 9 holes from long boxes and had a wonderful time
