Worth the drive from DFW
Pros: Tee signs on every hole
multiple tee cement tee boxes
multiple pin positions
VERY good use of the land given
Cons: pay attention to the map, some of the holes can be confusing if your not paying attention.
Other Thoughts: 1st time I had played this course in years. I had played it many times as a 9 hole and with 9 temp holes added. This was the first time in many years sense the course was expanded to 18 and with all the alts.
Very large tree's for most of this course, while not a lot of them, they do come into play on most of the holes. There is a small creek running though the course, it had water in it the day we were playing, but I can see it drying up for the summer.
There is some slight elevation changes on a few of the holes. There is also a few wide open rip it holes.
In all, a very good mix of long and short, tight and wide open.
Best thing, stop at The Shed @ Daves Stove Shop at the corner by the highway for lunch, well worth the trip on it's own. (not open on Sun/Mon)
Open but not too easy
Pros: This is a great course for beginners and experienced players. It has great sweeping lines that let you rip a long drive on most holes. There are excellent long and short cement tee pads for every hole as well as two or three pin placements for each hole. It plays well even after a good rain because of the grass and good drainage. If you play the long box to the long pins then it is a very challenging course and if you play the short box to the short pins it is very beginner friendly course.
Cons: I have difficulty with low ceiling shots so this is not in my favorites. There are some nice open shots that let you get a good bomb shot, but most of them have a low ceiling and that will be frustrating for most players. I personally would like more elevation changes and more variety in the holes/shots.
Other Thoughts: The park is well taken care of. There are plenty of trash cans and there is rarely trash on the course when I play. My favorite holes are 7 and 8.
Very worthwhile to play!
Pros: This is an excellent course for all skill levels. The long throwers will be able to reach all or almost all of the holes with their drives and can make it more challenging by driving with their mid-range discs on many of the holes. I'm a senior and normally drive around 300' which makes this a lot of fun because most of the holes are around 295 - 330. The trees are used advantageously to make most of the holes a test for even the best players. Extended tee pads are nice. For the most part it isn't a long hike between baskets to the next tee pad. Multiple tee pads and basket locations provide a good variety. The trees provide lots of shade on most holes.
Cons: Some of the tee pads have a little bit of a drop off. I agree with a previous reviewer about the dog people being oblivious to flying objects.

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

My Home Course
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: 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.

My Favorite Course So FAR
Pros: I love this course, this course fits my game perfect. I haven't been playing that long so my
finesse game is not so good. Lake Weatherford is a clean, non crowded course. The elevation change is very suttle, the dry ceek that cuts through the course gives the course it's elevation changes. The one thing about this course is you may not have any wind on the Tee Box but once the disk flys over the low lying area of the creek you'll get cross winds. Lake Weatherford is very well maintained, not sure what city is in charge of the course but they do a good job of keeping it clean. You can play a round in about an hour and a half, it's not crowded at all
Cons: Can be a drive for people on the east side of the Metroplex. Can be a little confusing with holes 4,5,6 but nothing a couple of signs can't fix. It's hard for me to find any con's with this course I like it so much.
Other Thoughts: Park benches has been added on some of the holes. Don't speed on Mikus Rd. because you will get a ticket. Lake Weatherford is very family friendly, a place you can take your kids and not worry about anything. It's just a nice clean fun course to play. If you're ever on the far westside of the metroplex check out Lake Weatherford.

It sure got nice
Pros: -Not very busy at times
-Out of the way
-Chance at some great shots
-They finally put in a full 18 holes
-Maps on the back of the board in front of the parking lot.
-Caters well to sidearmers on quite a few holes.
-Has a port-a-potty on site.
Cons: -The parking lot is a little sketchy for lowered cars
-The Willow Park and Hudson Oaks cops
-Can get humid as hell thanks to the lake
-Beware the grass on 16! It is a disc eater.
Other Thoughts: Great course. I used to play this course a lot when it first opened with 9 holes. Just don't speed down Mikus, the Willow Park and Hudson Oaks cops like to cruise around down there.

Pros: -Concrete T-pads
-Numerous pin positions
-Terrain Variety (some of the best)
-Shot Variety (great finesse course)
-Short and long holes
-Great course to learn the game on being that there are plenty of pins reachable from the pad... did somebody say ACE RUNS!!!
-Easily started at front of back side of the course...there's a parking lot at both.
There's really nothing bad to say about this course. It has it all. In relation to what another reviewer mention.... the terrain changes per hole is like no other course in the area.
-I hear it's supposed to be 36 holes by the end of the year.
Cons: -T-pads can get muddy when it rains
-On a cold day, the wind might be coming off the lake...makes it super cold.
-Small creek can and will overflow its banks.
No problems outside of the normal disc golf situations...muddy boxes, squshy fairways when it's wet out.
Other Thoughts: This course is great. Totally worth a good drive. I'm 30 min from it.
Also a great course to play when the weather is bad (cold/windy). The trees provide lots of cover for the wind.
Play this course, you'll be glad that you did.

Pros: Very few weak holes.Some of the best wooded holes in Texas.1,4,11,14 and 18 come to mind.
1.great opening hole with many options.you can go straight at it over the creek,Thow a sharp Hyzer around the tree line.When the creek is dry you can even throw a roller.
4.Again you have options even with the tightness of the hole there is more than one line.
11.Great hyzer hole that has heavy brush to the left waiting for the early release :)
14.Long par 3 starting in the trees to a field with an upshot back into the trees.A blast to launch one through the trees.
18.Probably the best hole on the course.Long par 3 for the pros and a 4 for the avg player.It's all tunnel baby.If you can throw a roller straight do it here! It's all open down the middle till about 40 ft short of the green.
Cons: The tees are terrible.Poison plants are here but not nearly as bad as Bear creek.If the tees are fixed I'm giving this a 4.5 but as is it's a 4.
Other Thoughts: Well worth the drive.Great course to learn to keep it low.
