short but fun course

Pros: good use of the land. elevation comes into play as several holes weave back and forth across and along a ravine.
nice concrete tees.
easy to navigate, even with most of the signs missing.
short holes make for a birdie fest and several ace opportunites.
even though it's short, there are lots of obstacles and many kinds of shots are required.
Cons: most signs missing or vandalized and a few of the baskets are a little bent out of shape but still playable.

lots of construction going on at the park at the moment. doesn't really affect any of the holes but gives a bit of a "cluttered" feel.

if you're looking for a place to fire up the big guns, this isn't it.

creek/sewer? that runs through the back 9. not too much of an obstacle, would take a seriously errant throw to go in.
Other Thoughts: nothing especially memorable here but it's a fun course. new signs and basket repairs would be nice but their current condition doesn't really affect the playability of the course.

there is another course nearby. it is a bit more wooded so the contrast, short length of this course, and the proximity between the two make them a good pair.

 Quick 'n' Fun

Pros: This course can be played in less than an hour. There are a good variety of shot opportunities. I would think everyone would enjoy this course, from beginner to pro. The locals were good to get along with. While the holes are short with the exception of 17, they still make you pick your shot. The course makes you try different shots, while still remaining fairly easy and fun. This course would make a good Ace Race course. My personal goal is to score 36 here. It is attainable. I will be back. Very fun course, and very close to downtown OKC and or Will Rodgers Airport.
Cons: A couple baskets could use repair, but they are all standing and in working order. I find it hard to fault this place.

Pros: Fun course that you can play pretty quick. Ok course for beginners and others alike. The longest hole is like 375 but everything else is reachable for most players. Good mix of left and right shots and a little elevation as well. It is pretty easy to follow and there isnt really any spots to lose your plastic.
Cons: You can tell this is an older course, most of the tees are elevated a good 4 to 6 inches therefor there is a step up needed. Tee signs are missing as well.
Other Thoughts: The shop over the road has a ok selection of discs and a place to get some cold drinks. We stop here all the time for a "warm up" round for Dolese which is pretty close( 5 minutes)

Pros: A nice course with some elevation change and water on a few holes. Long Concrete tee pads. There are some signs but easy to follow as there is a some what path from tee to tee. Mostly short to medium distance.
Cons: Missing signs, and the tees/baskets have had a lot of erosion so tees have drop offs and the baskets set about 6 to 8 inches higher.
Other Thoughts: You can get disc across the street near hole 12 at the foodmart. There was no one here today (to cold/windy) but the park has a swimming pool and a lot of other things so it could be busy during warmer months.


the HOLE INFO. on the course page is way off or for other tees not the concrete tees.

 old, beginner course through clean park

Pros: Clean, well maintained course designed a long time ago, therefore perfect for beginners and for warm-up and practice these days. Easy to follow, no really blind holes or long walks. Good design with variety. Disc shop next to the course.
Cons: Tee pads- an accident waiting to happen. They are raised (washed out over time) sometimes up to almost a foot off the ground, so you can't run up from behind and if you slip off the front you could fall or pull a muscle.
Signs- Most gone/vandalized (yet easy to navigate).

 Nice Place to Throw When You Can't Throw Long

Pros: Interesting shot variety. Some long holes but overall this is a short layout. Great for beginners are those who don't throw 400 feet. Hills make for some different shots.
Cons: Busy. Course is definitely showing some age. Baskets look rough in places. So-So neighborhood.
Other Thoughts: Very fun to play. Round done in an hour. Good place to work on short game, or just shoot a low socre.

Pros: Clean park, short grass playing surface. Good variety of shots, especially when the wind kicks up.

HOLE DETAILS:

1 - Hyzer shot across drainage ditch. Multiple lines for sidearm throwers and lefties.

2 - Pin guarded by lots of trees; again, multiple paths.

3 - Upshot across the ditch. Most adv players and above will deuce this.

4 - Parallels the road. Go too far and you'll coast down the hill.

5 - Perfect hole for an S-shot. Lots of tree roots on the green.

6 - Easy ace run here.

7 - Anhyzer uphill shot with trees to negotiate. Slope is devilishly slippery when wet.

8 - Nice 325' air shot. Bomb this one and your disc will wind up in the police station parking lot.

9 - Multiple lines, a few trees to contend with.

10 - Another short hole but because of the trees, not much of an ace run. A skip might make it.

11 - Air it out. Straight shot along a line of trees, which don't come into play unless you grip-slip.

12 - Straight alley between two lines of trees. Stop at the store after this hole if you need refreshment or more discs.

13 - Anhyzer shot downhill to the open sewer that runs around the NW corner of this course. There are people who will fish discs out of this hole, but not me.

14 - Long uphill shot. A roller works well here but watch out for crosswinds.

15 - Anhyzer over the creek. I've also seen people go through the woods here but it looks pretty dicey to me.

16 - Ace run. Don't overshoot or you'll wind up in the creek, which at this point has a tall, steep bank.

17 - Air it out here. Wide open except for the pool enclosure to the right and the trees to the left. Make it between these two obstacles (the gap is about 20 yards wide) and you've got a straight shot at the pin.

18 - RHBH best shot is over the corner of the parking lot, which is a really good place to not park your car. The creek at this point is channeled in concrete.
Cons: The creek that runs along the back nine is an open sewer.
Other Thoughts: This course is probably on the short side for people who can drive 350-400' or more but for noodle arms like me, it's just right.

 Will Rogers - Short and Sweet

Pros: This is a moderately short course. It is very skill-oriented. It is a FANTASTIC place to practice the short game, probably at least half the holes have possibilities for aces. It is not overly wooded, and it makes for fast play. I can easily get up to 3 full rounds in by noon. There are online maps, sufficient parking, and lots of friendly people. Concrete tee pads, benches, and trash cans present. It is easy to get a good score, even if you are not a pro. In the summer time, it's easy to finish 18 and go directly to the pool inside the park.
Cons: Some of the fairways are tight. Some of them practically overlap. It is not uncommon to have someone on another hole in your fairway, especially on the front 9. Signs are present, but unfortunately most of them have been around so long that the paint is worn completely off of them. The online map helps a lot for first-timers. The layout for the front nine is confusing at first. This course can get BUSY. Only good thing about it getting busy at this course is that the holes are short enough to help with wait time if it does back up. There are occaisionally people who seem to leave beer cans laying around.
Other Thoughts: There is a convenience store across the street from the park that sells discs that's fairly priced. If passing through OKC, this course is not far at ALL from the airport (maybe even doable with a long layover). Fixed the Lat/Long. of the course, the previous coordinates were WAY off.
