Classic Beginner Course
3 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: - this is a great beginner course, it will help teach new players various different throws
- very pleasant park scene, along a beautiful (but shallow) creek
- playable during a lunch break
- great course to practice throwing putters
- brand new Discatcher baskets
- easy to nominate some safari "long tees" for some more fun
- other park activities (playground, softball field) are not in throwing lanes
Cons: - navigation is horrendous, which seems to be the theme for all Nacogdoches courses
- the tee boxes are marked by 4x4 timbers laying flat in the ground, with "T BOX 5" written on them, they are hard to see and the ground isn't worn enough to notice them easily
Other Thoughts: This course would be a perfect pitch - n - putt if it had some decent tee markers. It doesn't need John Houck style signs, just a wooden post standing up with the tee number on it would suffice. I actually really enjoyed hole 7 and hole 5. I'd love to play some glow here too.

Great Beginner Course

Pros: The park is very well maintained, clean if you don't count the creek, and situated well bewteen Pecan and Pioneer for a quick 9 hole stop. Baskets all marked with numbers, all but hole 9 face the tee box, so this helps in finding the boxes. Good variety of shots.
Cons: Could really benefit from some signs, navigation got a little confusing in a couple places. The Tees are all dirt with a wooden marker on the ground with "T Box X" on them. A nice touch, but tough to see from a distance. Course stays close to the walking trail in places, and crosses itself at one point.
Other Thoughts: This course is exactly what a beginner course should be. It's got shorter holes, with a wide variety of shots. I wish I'd learned at a course like this, where you need a strong forehand on several holes. The designers made the best use of the trees here, avoided the playground, and used the creek to increase the difficulty on what is a very simple little park. For experienced players this is a great place to take a midrange and play only that disc.

Pros: Water is a factor on this course, as are sidewalks and roads that play as OB. The trees are utilized strategically. No need for the entire bag since the longest hole is ~270'. It is not played as often as the other local courses. Baskets are numbered.
Cons: Water is a factor on this course and the creek bank is steep but the water is typically "shallow." The park is active in the evenings making some holes hazardous or unplayable. Not well marked.
Other Thoughts: Double chained baskets. Since it is across from the police station, the nickname floating around for the course is "The Sheriff."
