Pros: -Good Baskets
-Nice, well maintained park with lots of flowers
-water hazards
-clean- No garbage all over the place. this is huge for Oklahoma. Also, the creek water was clear which is very rare in Oklahoma.
-tee signs were OK. Gave you a decent idea of where the basket and next tee were
-easy - good course for a beginner or a quick and low stress round
-not much foot traffic in the park
Cons: -no tee pads
-not very challenging - even your average player will probably find this course to be too short and easy
-not much hole variety. Most of the holes were a straight shot or a RHBH hyzer shot. I played the whole thing 2x and finished -10 overall with just a putter and mid range. (Vibram rules!)
-one of the tee signs was moved and erased. which, since there are no tee pads, makes it difficult to find the tee area.
Other Thoughts: Just kind of a little fun course for someone looking to work on their short game or play a very quick and easy round. I would recommend going to Seminole to play the 18 there instead, if I were in the area looking for a course.

making the creek and pond OB would make the course more challenging but it does not mention them on the tee signs.

Plenty of parking
Cons: Short
Grass Tees
Most Tees were too close to the previous basket
Couldn't find #8's teesign
#6 Teesign has been moved to right next to the basket (vandals??)
Holds a little water right after a rain
No real chances to stretch out a driver
Walking path in play a lot (not busy)
#9 plays across a ball field/practice area
No benches/trashcans in the DG area
Other Thoughts: Overall this course has very little challenge and some fun. A good park to practice in or take beginners to. They used/fit the available area very well. This is a decent/typical park course, for what that means.

My Disc Rating is based heavily on "fun factor," which this park has some of. Then I bump it up or down based on amenities.

If I'm in the area, I will stop and play it again. But, I wouldn't drive much distance at all, unless just to add to my course count.

PM me and let me know how my reviews could be more "helpful."

Pros: Very new DGA baskets. They caught well.

Easy to follow the flow. Nicely laid out.

A couple of interesting holes to set this course apart from your basic 9 holer.

Plenty of parking and other city park amenities.
Cons: DO NOT PLAY HERE IF CROWDED AT ALL! Most pads are very near the previous basket, creating some danger if others are playing. Also, holes 8 and 9 play across a baseball area.

Course did not drain well. Also, a couple of sewage man holes were overflowing.

Course is very short. Challenge is next to zero.

Signs were missing for a couple holes and the pads were pretty poorly marked.

Other Thoughts: This is a nice place to bring young children to play. Serious discers should look elsewhere. I enjoyed playing here. Any course is better than nothing, right?
