Decent 9 holes
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: The course is in a nice little park in De Queen. Baskets are new and the teepads are nice large concrete pads that provide a great surface to throw from. An interesting feature is the hole numbers physically in the teepads.
There are good elevation changes. Hole 6 made me empty my bag on it as it is a short downhill hole with the small creek behind it and a few trees to make it interesting.
The park was in great shape while I was there. Grass was cut and there wasn't anything like branches on the ground or any other hazard. Of course, I haven't been to the course too much, so I can't say that it is always like this.
Dual tees are nice. There is enough of a difference to justify playing both sets in an afternoon.
Cons: There is only one hole with any real length, and that is only from one long pad of hole 3. The rest of the course is pretty short, even from the longer pads. There isn't much that could be done in this space to make the course longer however. It is pretty much maxed out without playing too close to other holes.
The walk from 8 to 9 is a long one. It is pretty tough to spot 9 from 8's basket too.
Overall, the course is open. Not too much challenge to many of the holes. Hole 9 is the only hole I would consider "wooded" at all. There are some trees scattered around the property to make the course at least interesting. So, it isn't wide open, but it is far from wooded.
Other Thoughts: It is nice to have a course here. This area is tucked away from many courses as the nearest one to this course is over 40mi away. This is a great one to start off with for the De Queen area.
I was thrown off with the labeling of the teepads. PDGA guidelines say the red tees should be shorter than the blues, but this course is backwards from that.
The creek that meanders through the course was mostly empty while I was there. I don't think it could ever get deep enough to steal discs for good if you happen to throw in it.
This is a decent course overall. I wouldn't travel out of my way for it, but it is great for locals as I said because it is the only one around. If in this remote town for any reason then I would definitely stop by for a round.

Nice and Easy
Pros: The course is very well maintained and is very visually pleasing. For the most part the course is easy to follow from hole to hole. Very simple to play and good for beginners as well. You should not loose any discs and the entire course can be played with just two or three.
Cons: I could not find hole 9. If I had not been on a tight schedule and had someone with me who was not playing, I would have been more dilligent in doing so. Perhaps directional markers could be added on the hole8 tee or at the basket.
Other Thoughts: The course is listed as only a 9hole and in essence is. However, there are two teepads per hole in order to make a whole 18. This is a great way to utilize the limited space here. I understand the climate but I do not feel that the creek poses a water hazard so if you do not have floating discs, do not worry.
If you park by the pool, the Hole1 tee is across the creek towards the large pavillion.

"The" New 9
4 Helpful / 13 Not
Pros: This course will give you a wide variety of shots to try from backhand to forehand. It provides open air shots, uphill shots, downhill shots, and big arm shots. You will be challenged by the pin locations located on downslopes, raised baskets, the #2 surrouned baskets of needle pine trees *awesome feature*. This course is well manicured for the best beauty for courses. There are many neat features on this course that will keep you coming back for more.
Cons: The walk from Hole #8 to #9 is lengthy, but couldn't be avoided. Hole #9/#18 is the wooded hole that became the filler hole to get you back to #1. If an errant disc hits a tree, it could end up in the parking lot.
Other Thoughts: This is the first course in Dequeen and much work has been added to create an awesome design. This course is a must play and fun course to learn on.
