Pros: Greenbelt has a big parking lot with plenty of space. There is a nice course map at the parking lot which helps for navigation purposes. There are tee signs for every hole which also helps navigation. They show the distance, provide a map of the hole and an arrow pointing where the next tee is. The course designer made good use of the land. The creek comes into play on most holes and many of the baskets make use of the limited trees throughout the course to add to the difficulty. Holes 12 - 15 make good use of the elevation. You throw up the hill then down and repeat the process again. The course involves a few bridges that you have to cross that are solid and sturdy.
Cons: After the redesign some of the numbers on the basket are not matching to the actual hole number. A few of the dirty teepads were uneven and I image they can get muddy after a rain. There was a "rock" bridge when crossing to hole 7. I image if the creek is high that you would not be able to cross the creek. The creek can be a disc eater if you aren't careful. It is not deep so if you have a golden retriever you should be able to get your disc pretty easily. Unfortunately, I did not have one so I left my blue Champion Mamba on 16. The only other thing i did not really like was walking from 17's basket to 18's teepad. You have to walk on the bridge right by Josey Ln. which is a pretty busy street.
Other Thoughts: Greenbelt is a really fun course and the designers made great use of the land that they were provided with. Navigation is easy and the creek and wind from the openness add a challenge to the course. This is not a staple course in the DFW area but definitely one everyone should try and go play.

Good course for practicing

Pros: -nice signage
-plenty of parking
-easy to find course with plenty of other things to do nearby
-always immaculately maintained
-decent variety of holes and distances
-great elevation changes on holes 12-15
-right by jimmy porter disc golf park, so it's great for back-to-back rounds
Cons: -most teepads are uneven piles of dirt which turn into mud when wet. As an added "bonus," several also have large rocks embedded in them as well, which makes a run-up or even a walk-up difficult to impossible. Seriously... can we just get concrete teepads already???
- There is a winding creek that comes into play on most holes. I actually think that this is a positive in some aspects, but I'm putting it under cons because it can eat discs and I find the number of insects it brings to be annoying. As a side note, the city put up a sign about west Nile virus right upfront in the park due to the extreme amount of insects. That's not good.....
-there are no restrooms or water fountains anywhere
-the baskets are really starting to show their wear. Several are missing chains, have broken chains, etc. They need to be updated.
-some holes may be too open for advanced players, but the creek, elevation changes, tree placement, and sometimes wind drafts can keep you on your toes.
-most of the course is easy to navigate, but there are a couple of spots that could confuse a first-timer.
Hole 3 plays to the left of the pavilion past hole 2. The Hole 7 teepad is actually under the overpass, so you will have to cross the creek after the hole 6 basket. Hole 18 also requires that you cross the creek to the right of the hole 17 basket (hole 18 leads you back to the parking lot). All this brings me to my last con: you will need to be careful crossing the creek. It is slippery, and when the water is high it can be downright dangerous.
Other Thoughts: This course could certainly use some updating, but it is still very fun and it should be in your DG rotation if you live within 20 or so minutes of it.
With jimmy porter just a few minutes away, it makes for a great double-header of courses as well.

Pros: -The signs are nice.
-Some interesting shots (like the one from under the street) keep the round lively.
-Since DFW doesn't have much elevation, this place relatively speaking has quite a bit.
-Well maintained and mowed!
-Has some longer distance holes which is always fun!
Cons: -The course runs along a creek which is in play on every hole. Bring a retriever or your A-game.
-Needs more trash cans.
-Took me a while to find 7's tee.
-Lots of non-DGers out here.
Other Thoughts: Worth a round or two. . .
Good but could be improved
Pros: Nice new signage with pretty nice hole views. nice elevation changes and great views.
Cons: could be layed out a little better I think. 7s Tee is nearly impossible to find if you didnt know the course.
Other Thoughts: Interesting little creek running through the middle of the course adds some fun to it

Bring a pole
- Mowed fairways
- New tee signs
- Unique use of elevation on several holes
- High risk/reward on most holes
- Made some of the easier holes more challenging than the old layout
- The creek is wide and murky and in play on nearly ever hole
- Hole 5 is much shorter in this layout, no longer bomb-able
- Hole 7's teepad is apparently in the street, according to the map [Update: the teepad is apparently under the bridge]
- Muddy around the back half
- No teepads on most holes
- There's a good chance you might lose some discs if you do not bring a pole (golf ball retriever) with a hook on the end. If you do bring one, the creek isn't quite so bad
