Pros: -Fantistic concrete teepads
-Long and short teepads on almost every hole
-Multiple pin locations
-Very well kept
-Trash cans and benches throughout
-Friendly locals
-Port-a-john near parking lot
-Pratice basket near parking lot
-Good amount of shade provided by the trees through most holes
Cons: -If it's your first time out you might have a hard time with flow in a few spots
-Some days there are lots of oblivious dog walkers walking through your fairway
Other Thoughts: I love this course, that pretty much sums it up. Decent shot variety although some will argue it needs more (the new 9 that are coming will add good variety). It is mostly RHBH friendly but there's a couple where RHFH will have a big advantage. It is always very clean thanks to the fantastic club at Weatherford. The wind is almost always a factor thanks to the lake, could be a pro because it adds to the challenge or a con if it's beating you up that day. Good amount and use of trees, not too many but enough to make you think about shot placement and try new lines. Everyone is always friendly out there and you should be confident that you are safe to bring the family here. Occasionally the city will drain water from the lake which come through the park. It stays in the creek for the most part but it will make 9&14 rather wet sometimes. It is very important to me to have teepads that are long enough. Nothing sucks more than stepping off the end of a pad and screwing up your shot, and possible hurting your ankle/knee or something else. This is a complete non issue here. This is a great course and if you haven't played here you need to come play it!

Pros: - Well thought out pin placements
- long concrete teepads
- multiple tee & pin positions
- solid mix of shots
- good baskets
- good signage (except for missing sign on hole 2)
- trees are used well as obstacles
- well shaded for the summer months
Cons: - navigation was somewhat challenging for the first go around
- tall grass in some areas
- wasn't an issue when I was there, but the whole course is in a floodplane by the lake, so I would imagine it can probably get pretty hairy with any real precipitation
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed this course, it is very well laid out. It would be safe to take a beginner here, but still provides a challenge for advanced players looking for deuces (lots of birdie opportunities). It offers some great variety.

Not necessarily a pro or con, but this course seemed oddly LHBH friendly.

Pros: Course had nice concrete teepads and almost all of the holes had signs with the hole layout. All baskets are in really good shape. Course has practice basket. Course had a few benches and trash cans.
Cons: Some holes need to be mowed. Other than the tall grass in some areas it was a nice course. Also port-a-potties on location..
Other Thoughts: Good course for the location on the outside of the DFW area.

Pros: Concrete tees, multiple pin locations, benches. Different holes benefit different throws. Good variety, fun course. Weekly minis and a good community!
Cons: Sometimes the grass gets too long. Signs don't show all three basket locations. If you aren't a local you may have trouble finding the next tee.
Other Thoughts: Home course

Pros: Lots of mature pecan trees provide variety and relief from the Texas sun.

Well maintained. Very clean park.

Friendly locals.

Challenging, yet beginner friendly.

Lots of fun.
Cons: Parks department takes its time getting the mowing done.
Other Thoughts: One of the best courses in DFW. If you haven't played it yet you are missing out.

Pros: Finding pros for the Weatherford course is not a difficult task. Coming into the park you find a location with plenty of room at the end of a road that dead ends within view of a lake. Tall trees, mowed grass and a clean landscape are all inviting as well. the tee pads are spacious and have signs. parking is near hole 1 and 18 brings players back to the start of the course. Many of the holes have multiple approach lines and the distance and obstacles make good use of the available terrain. the peaceful vibe of the course was in my opinion its biggest pro; though the creativity of the basket placements was very entertaining.
Cons: the cons of this course were as noticeable as the pros. The biggest as seen in the title of this review is that a lot of holes have a third in-use alternate basket location. The signs are nice but are of no help since the basket location can be 400ft away behind trees and completely unmarked. Also, in the way of navigation the course doubles back on itsself often enough to make knowing where the next tee pad is difficult even with map in-hand. Though subjective to personal preferences I also found it to be somewhat repetitive and did not really require much variety in shots or discs.

Pros: This park stays super clean thanks to the WDG club members as we sponsor the course and surrounding roadway. We do appreciate your help keeping it clean, thank you in advance.
The park has lots of shade due to the large Pecan trees scattered throughout.
We move the baskets about once a month to keep variety in the course, so hopefully it's different the next time you visit.
Cons: Not a whole lot of elevation change in the terrain. When the Utility Dept releases water it can be wet on a couple holes and sometimes in the summer, rather fragrant.
Other Thoughts: I run the weekly minis on Wed at 6:30pm and Sat morning at 9am. Please try to get there aearly for sign-ups as this is the start time.

Pros: Course has good shot variety, pin positions change with good frequency, is well cared for and usually litter free. Concrete pads with great tee signs. Good shade on several holes. Normally not crowded and has several benches placed throughout the course.
Cons: No major elevation changes. Locals enjoy walking the park so you have to watch for people and dogs. Several times we've had to flag people picking pecans on hole 18 that we were throwing discs their direction. Parking is close to holes 16 and 18 so an errant disc could possibly hit your vehicle.
Other Thoughts: I have no issues bringing my young kids with me to this course as everyone is friendly and I don't have to worry about them picking up questionable items or hurting themselves on the terrain.

Pros: Great course not too many trees but enough to give you a challenge. Most of the course is well shaded. An all around fun course to play. Good balance of different shots can be used on this course really caters to a lot of different throws.
Cons: None really other than its a bit of a drive for DFW folks and the only restroom is a porta-potty.
Other Thoughts: Love the doubles mini they have every Saturday morning good way to learn the course.
