Pros: Decent DB-5 baskets
Tee signs tell approx direction and hole #
Ace chances
Good to work on your mids/putters
A few lines to hit
Not crowded
Good for newbies/family
Decent use of the existing trees
Very quick round (15min). Play twice.
Well kept
Bathrooms near #7 tee
Water near bathrooms
Ample parking
Any DG near the lake is better than none
Might introduce newbies to the game

Favorite Hole(s): #5, #4. The only ones that forced you to go around something, though very short
Cons: Natural tees
Tee signs tell only direction and #
#6 tee sign was broken and laying on ground
Almost wide open
Very few lines to hit
Almost no risk/reward
Repetetive most holes were across an open area to the trees on either side
Hole 7 throws near the parking (might hit a car)
Very little challenge
Holding a lot of water after the rain
Very flat
Very short
Other Thoughts: If you happen to be camping here on Texoma, swing by and practice your short game. There is one hole that you might use a driver on. Only one. Don't travel any distance to play this course unless simply to bag another one. I recommend parking by the bathroom and starting on hole #7.

This is a course that I won't be back to unless I happen to be camping down at the lake.

My disc rating is weighted heavily toward fun factor which this course has very little of.

Pros: Course set on what I guess to be about 7 acres or less of land inside a gated public use area, the smallest peice of land I've seen used for DG. The course plays back and forth and around a grass field with a few trees. The design wasn't terrible as it had several holes that forced one type of throw or another to avoid the trees. It was easy to follow with a little bit of scouting ahead ( I uploaded a crude map here). I started on 7 as it was near the parking / bathroom.
Cons: Four of the holes played in or near an area where only the fairway is mowed and you could easily loose a disc off the fairway or going long behind the basket. 8 & 9 were shortish wide open shots back and forth across the field with the potential to loose a disc in the rough behind the basket on 8. Most tee boxes were way to close to the baskets but I don't see this course getting enough play for that be an issue. With how short it is, it also should be a big deal to wait for the card ahead to move off the tee and out of the way prior to throwing.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend anyone travel to play this course. If you were looking for a camping spot with Lake Texoma access and a few baskets this would fit the bill. It was nice to play 9 holes then go jump in the water on a hot day. It probably deserves better than I'm rating but it really isn't much or a course.

This round was the first time we had our 18 month old walk an entire course. That is how short and open it was.
