Pros: My first impression of this course was that it was a short and open course.It has a good number of ace opportunities with what seems like alot of open ground.
It is actually pretty challenging.The trees are well placed,almost every basket is on or near a major slope,and the wind is usually a factor.
Always worth the trip.
Cons: Having to play #16(you have to throw through an opening less than 6 feet wide about 20 feet in front of the tee at a basket next to the lake)
Other Thoughts: If your inspection is expired or you have a tail light out you will be pulled over going through the neighborhood.Do not speed.

Pros: This course has lots of elevation. They have well placed tees and baskets. It has protected pins, accuracy shots, ace runs, hole length variation, great use of land and wooded surroundings. This course sits next to a lake that puts water in play on a couple of holes without too much disc loss potential. This is a multi-use park, but most of the disc golf is played away from the other park users. It has good cement tee pads, great baskets and tee signs on all the holes. There is a great map/message board by the first hole, however navigation is pretty easy anyway. Some of the shots using the up and down elevation-designed holes is really a treat. This course is set next to the beautiful Lake Waco and it is very clean. Unlike many places we play disc golf across the country, this course does allow you to bring the alcohol along.
Cons: The playground is a little close off the tee on one hole, but after that you are fairly people free. You still need to walk up ahead and check for people on the blind up-hill shots. This course really needs more trashcans as I only remember seeing a few. The park really needs a restroom, as there are no public restrooms close by.
Other Thoughts: The fun factor on this course was pretty high. Usually a course with lots of shorter holes does not thrill me too much. But Woodway has the accuracy and difficulty built in on these holes that it is a real treat to play. There are some great skip it in holes for aces. The elevation is so well designed; every hole here was fun for me. This is well worth playing if you are in town. Now, if you are planning a road trip to Waco, you really should just plan on hitting all 3 courses as they are all worth the drive.

Pros: Sweet course with lots of elevation for this part of the state. The course sits atop a "mound" and uses it very well. Almost every hole has some sort of elevation as do most greens. The shot variety is there as well ranging from wide open boomers to short tight shots. Nice concrete teepads and good baskets as well. There is a map at hole 1 which helps the new people to the course. Good shot selection that challenges all shots in your bag. Very easy to follow even without the map. You go back near your car so that you can refill your drinks on a hot day. Great views of Lake Waco! Camping near by. Never real busy so that you can play at your own pace and try different shots without holding anyone up as well.
Cons: The tee pads ae just numbers with hand written distancres. No shade!! Can get windy on certain days. It can get very hot. Kind of out of the way from the other 2 courses in town.
Other Thoughts: This course is a good change from the other 2 courses in town with camping on the grounds. Play either early or late in the day to beat the afternoon heat.

Pros: This course is set on a big hill overlooking Lake Waco.

It has a major fun factor due to almost every hole being down hill. The designer did an excellent job of maximizing the elevation changes.

It has concrete teepads and signs on every hole.

There is a large map at hole #1 for you to see the flow of the course.

There is road around the park with parking spaces at different holes. You can park at any basket and play from there and finish there for a staggered start if it's busy.

There is a picnic area and playscape right in the middle of the course and the flow of the course comes back to the middle three times which is pretty cool. It would be a great place for a family reunion or DG party or tournament.
Cons: One hole has you throwing towards a playscape but the distance is such that most discs will fade before they get there.

Some areas of the course are very open with no shade which could be brutal in the summer.
Other Thoughts: I wish I had tried this course sooner but did not because of all the three disc ratings it got. Trust me, this course is excellent.

Pros: This course flows freely. I was shocked not to see more people playing this hidden gem. The course is fun and still remains semi-challenging. Nicely wooded and very scenic with the lake in the background. Some of the holes are pretty easy birds which is nice to build the confidence up.
Cons: Trrees.... no need to say more.
Other Thoughts: A great course to play on with several of your DG buddies and have a blast!!!! Bang the chains!!!!!

Pros: Woodway has everything you are looking for, uphill, downhill, wooded, open area, across the street shots. Good quick course once you are familure with the tees and there is a map on site. All the tees and baskets are there and marked. Very beautifly seanic area. I usualy play at sunrise and it realy makes for an awesome game.
Cons: Easy to get lost from basket to tee and you may not be familure with 7b and 17b
Other Thoughts: Waco's highley under rated course. (woodway police often patrol this area and scare some 420 friendly players away)

Pros: There were concrete tee pads and good signs. Navigation was not a problem at all. If you do get mixed up, all of the holes are close enough together that you can easily walk to check the teebox for the hole number you are looking for. The course is situated across a hilltop that overlooks lake Waco, making for a very pretty view. The course is covered in juniper trees that WILL catch your disc...and sticks...and rocks...and anything else you throw up into it. Throwing over the top is definitely an option on many holes here, but not always advisable given the risk of getting stuck in a tree. There are a few long holes and many short holes to play as well. Elevation changes on some of the holes add another level of challenge and fun as well.
Cons: Basket 2 was missing the first time that I played the course in the summer of '08 and the basket for hole 16 was missing this summer. The baskets have only a single layer of chains and not the double layer like most baskets have. Many of the baskets are also too low to the ground. Many of the tee pads are not level.
Other Thoughts: Waco has three great courses. I recommend starting at Woodway, then play Cameron park, then cap off your rounds at the Beast across the Brazos from Cam park. These are all three must plays if you are in Waco.

 A Nice Complement to the Cameron Park courses in Waco

Pros: his was a fun course the couple of times I've played it. Not as many memorable shots as either of the other Waco courses, but it has quite a few good holes, respectable elevation changes on many of the shots, a beautiful view out over the lake, and a mix of disc-eating cedars and friendly oak trees that add challenge to a lot of the holes.
Cons: The grass can be wicked high in the fields because this course isn't played a lot, but hopefully they'll have it mowed and in pristine shape for tourneys.

If you are trying to be competitive, try to get out there to walk the course and throw some practice drives on a few of the holes. Because of all the elevation -- and because many of the elevation shots have OB behind the basket -- it can be tricky to judge how far your disc will carry. I took quite a few OBs my first time through the course; very few my second time, since I'd had a chance to judge the distance.
Other Thoughts: It provides a nice complement of shots that you don't get at either other of the other Waco courses -- the two Cameron Park courses -- mainly some open elevation shots that test your ability to judge distance up and down hills. Cameron East has almost zero elevation, and the regular Cameron Park course has elevation only on the shorter, highly treed holes. Woodway lets you huck some shots up and down hills, which is a nice change.

Well worth the trip if you're in the area. I really like playing all three Waco courses. I find that Woodway is the best place to start -- it's a great place to enjoy a cool morning and loosen up your arm. Then head to Cameron Park and play 27 holes (repeat the front nine, since they're such fun little shots). Then grab lunch and head to The Beast and try to get in two rounds there if possible. The Beast remains one of my favorite courses anywhere in the country, so it definitely overshadows Woodway. But Woodway is still worth the experience -- if only for the views out over the water, which can be breathtaking at sunset.

Pros: Easy to navigate, beginner friendly, but will also challenge the intermediate to pro player. Accuracy is a must to keep your score low. This is a disc golf park so no worries of people setting-up camp in the fairways.
Cons: Bring mosquito/chigger spray and cover your shoes and legs.
Other Thoughts: Holes 7 and 17 have alt teeboxes but are not marked. See the course map under links/files.
