Short, but not simple.

Pros: A good course demanding accurate shots in the 230-290 foot range which is unusual for the area. A good variety of shot shapes and challenges required for low scoring.
Cons: Tee pads too close to baskets in a few areas, Baskets too close to mixed use areas in some places.

Pros: - The course is new, so the tee boxes and pins are in good shape
- The course is a bit monotonous at times, but has some fun, somewhat challenging holes
Cons: - There are a couple of holes on this course that would be unplayable after a big rain
Other Thoughts: A fun, relatively easy course. Good confidence booster!

Pros: -brand new discatchers
-concrete pads
-poles installed for signs (signs not in yet)
-good mix of longer/shorter, open/wooded
-makes decent use of present elevation
-creek in play on a few holes (5, 7, maybe 8, 9, 10)
-right off the highway, plenty of parking
Cons: -hole 1 is across the park from hole 18
-several holes on the back 9 are dangerously close to one another, especially 16-18.
-a few holes have picnic tables in the fairway (9, 10, 15)
-the above plus a number of pedestrians that probably have no clue about disc golf make for some potential safety issues. holes 9 and 18 have mandos that attempt to mitigate the risk but there is only so much you can do.
Other Thoughts: A fun course that you can play pretty quickly despite being spread out along the edge of the park. There are woods, a creek, and even a bit of elevation that come into play. The navigation is fairly intuitive except for a few spots but there will be next tee signs in a few strategic places. The baskets and pads are brand new and great. The signs haven't been put in yet but the poles that they will go on are already there.

The wooded shots have pretty tight lines. Holes 3, 4 & 6 have narrow tunnels, the latter two with doglegs out of the woods. Hole 5 is an open field shot ~250' to a 10' wide tunnel so you have to place your drive. Holes 9 & 10 have lots of scattered trees and a low ceiling. The back end of the course is closer together and has lots of duece opportunities with rolling hills and a smattering of trees.

This course makes for a fun round. It's beginner friendly except for a few of the tighter holes so it will be good for introducing the community to the sport. The safety issues should not be of too much concern so long as the course doesn't get too crowded and people stay aware of the pedestrians. This course and the new one in Springtown make for a nice day of golf if you're willing to make the drive from Ft. Worth.
