A Nice Walk in the Park
Pros: I'll give you two reasons why this course is worth driving to:Every course in the DFW area is mostly flat when it comes to shorter hole layouts, this course is the only full eighteen in the metroplex(except for Turner Park) where every hole has some kind of minor elevation involved,mind you I said minor elevation not Z boaz cliffs or Veterans long slopeing hills.The slight elevation to every hole with lightly wooded fairways is what makes Weatherford stand out as being differant.Playing in high winds here is great for teaching yourself about wind rules on short to mid-range shots.Logs to rest and old park benches throughout for weary travelers.
Cons: Playing here in no wind will give shorter distance throwers an inflated ego.The best technical shots here are short holes.A few holes seem crammed in a bit.
Other Thoughts: Love the signage that explains Mando's and 0.B.'s for each and every hole.Eighteen really stands out from all the rest.The long pin placements are the better round here.

nice course with potential
Pros: For the most part the course flows well together (1st time we played the course and did in about an hour and a half) with most tee boxes in site from previoius baskets. Course is still a work in progress, the last 9 holes have been added to make it an 18 hole course. There is enough trees to make certian shots very challenging and a small creek that runs through a few holes added a small degree of annoyance. around hole 8-10 you do have a nice lake view. there is a mixture of short and long holes with most being around the 225-250 mark it seems. they do offer a map you can pick up on the course bulletion board. but you can aslo find it on pdga.com. They do have two pin settings so the course can change. The course layout makes it challenging and fun. there is not alot of elevation change so its good for the casual player. and only a few holes have a "rough" as the course is maintained well. its nice that the course starts and finishes at the same spot. It is worth driving to to play around, but if they keep it maintained and add some tee pads this will be a favorite and drivable course for many in the fort worth area
Cons: course is still a work in progress, hole 8 is a bit confusing. what appears to be along open shot off the tee box is actually the basket for 9, the hole is to the right by some trees if basket 9 is 12 oclock then the basket for 8 would be around 2ish. then from basket 9 ten is out in the open and looks back behind the tree line and lake. (some arrows showing you where your next tee is would be helpful) It is a work in progress so the new 9 holes have just a 5 foot pole up with a number for the tee boxes (all tees are natural)
Other Thoughts: hole two looks evil as they have put the basket behind a split tree. after finishing 5 walk across the small parking lot to hole 6 what looks like it should be 6 is 15 which is directly south of 4

Protected Pins with a Pleasing Pulse
Pros: This is the 3rd updated review for the now 18 hole course! There is some slight elevation changes on many of the holes. This has a variety of styles, including wooded and open holes. The baskets are in good shape. Some of the pins are in some great spots with some kind of obstacle(s) to deal with. There is a small creek running through the course, but it is not deep. The tees are now concrete and they all have great tee signs.Super cool thing about each tee, they all have some kind of sitting spot. Many of them are stump made stools, but there are benches and other types of seating also. There was a nice message board, plenty of trashcans, and 2 portable restrooms.
Cons: You may need a map to find your way around the first time out. Many of the holes do feel similar, so that do not vary that much.
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor is average for me. The pin placements are fantastic, but it just feels like the same driving distance many times over. But hopefully the new pin placements will fix this. I cannot say enough about the great condition and cleanliness of the course. This is a great place to play

Great for a 9 hole course!
Pros: This is a very pretty course! It has pecan trees all over it and a small creek that runs down through the middle of it. The signs are good, baskets are quality, and it is pretty easy to navigate. There are only a couple of pretty long holes, but the short ones aren't gimme birdies either. The trees on the fairways are situated in a way that you have to make some pretty technical throws to score well. The 9 holes that have been added recently are a great improvement to the course. I enjoy the tight downhill holes along the road. There is also a practice basket to warm up on.
Cons: It is right next to the lake, but there is only one spot on the course where you can barely get a glimpse of the lake. This course does not have concrete tee pads...that would be the one big thing to improve it.
Other Thoughts: Really fun course to play. Definitely worth making a trip to play. Be careful about going in the fall with fallen leaves everywhere you can lose a disc pretty easily on what you thought was a safe shot.

Pros: Nice pin placements (appeared they were set in the 'A' position. Although most holes are short in distance, birdies are not easy. You will have some sort of tree(s) in your line from tee to basket. The pins are gaurded nicely. Plenty of shade also.
Cons: Concrete tees would be nice, but the dirt ones were not too bad.
Other Thoughts: I did not expect too much on my way out to the course. I was pleasantly surrprised. This is a quality setup for a 9-hole course. The course was extremely clean, you can tell the regulars keep it up nicely.
