Pros: It's free to play
It has some of the holes marked
some of the baskets have not been destroyed yet
Cons: Baskets are not labeled
some of the tee markers are missing
several of the baskets are in bad shape, specially hole 3 that is just sitting 1 foot off the ground.
Holes 5 and 6 are in the woods, both are less than 100 ft holes and I bet tough to play in the summer when the brush is thick.
Other Thoughts: I do not know the history of this course, but I will say it probably cost about $1,250 to make as they use practice baskets with the base locked down. Due to the cheaper baskets, they are starting to fall apart.

The tee signs are a thin construction plastic with the number of the hole and distance on some of them. At least the ones not missing. There are also some landscaper stones that at one time marked the tee area, however most have be moved next to the tee sign. I don't think any actually marked a tee box.

Basically, there is no reason to play here. This is not the worst course I have ever played, but it is up there.

 A Little Putter Practice Near The Lake

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.

 Not terrible

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.
