Pros: -fun layout that makes good use of the land available
-creek in play, some minor elevation, and a few tight wooded shots
-the alternate looks at the same baskets are actually pretty different
-good variety of open/trees, short/long
-great new discatchers
Cons: -walking trails throughout with lots of pedestrians
-picnic tables, walking trails, benches, and a parking lot in the fairways
-no signs yet and some tee areas are not cleared/flat/safe
-finding the park can be odd, the location is strange due to some construction, just remember to turn into the lot before the Wells Fargo
Other Thoughts: I was pleasantly surprised by this course as I was expecting your typical doinky little small town course in a city park. What I found instead was a well-thought layout that makes really great use of the limited resources of this odd little park, despite some obvious safety concerns that will almost certainly require adjustments in the future.
The park stretches back into a surprisingly large space surrounded by residential areas. Walking trails enter the park from various directions and neighborhoods. A creek winds throughout and comes into play on 2, 3, 7, 12, 16, & 18. You have to throw across the creek on 2, 7, 12, & 18. Some minor elevation comes in on a few holes as well as some park amenities: fence at the baseball field (holes 4/14), horseshoe pits (holes 5/13). Also a parking lot on hole 9 and various walking trails and park tables and benches throughout. I can see hole 5 getting a mando forcing you around the right side of the horseshoe pits but then it puts tee 14 in the fairway.
A note about the basket configuration, the following holes share the same baskets:
1/18, 2/17, 3/16, 4/14, 5/13, 6/12, 7/11, 8/10
After playing hole 3, you will see basket 15 off to the left. Tee 4 is ahead to the right and shoots toward the basket next to the fence of the baseball field. After playing hole 8, follow the trail ahead and you will see the basket for 9 off to the left. The tee for 9 is past the far end of the parking lot off the to left, shooting back toward the basket. Then play the back the other direction from the other pads you've seen marked along the way.
Overall, a very fun course with a few serious holes. Safety concerns may become an issue here but I imagine the idea is that the pads are temporary until an optimal layout is decided. This course makes a nice pair along with the new course in Azle and the drive from Ft. Worth is not bad at all.
