- Course is set in the open grounds of this large church. There are some baseball fields, and some roads in play, but there shouldn't be any interference with DG on any random day.
- Some moderately hilly terrain here, there is a decent mix of uphill and downhill shots. #13 and #14 are the most noticeable downhill shots, #5 and #15 are valley shots, and #12 and #16 play uphill. Nothing extremely major except for #13, but it adds variety to the tee shots. Also some places where the fairway slopes on the sides, like #8 and #9.
- A few trees here and there to force line shaping; #1-#4 have an increasing amount that encourage a RHBH hyzer line. #10's basket is close to some trees, and #16 has rough all along the right side.
- Man-made OB in multiple spots, some holes play next to roads, others play over one or two roads. Also some random pieces of concrete here and there, like on the left side of #3. Not that having concrete in the fairway is a Pro; but it really helps to add some challenge.
- Pretty good mix of hole lengths, half of them are 348' or longer. Seven of the rest are under 300', but none are ridiculously short. Good test of distance overall.
- Natural tees are in pretty good shape, baskets are top notch, signs are good though some were on the ground. Navigation is pretty straightforward, map isn't absolutely necessary.
- Vast, vast majority of the shots here are wide open. Absolutely wide open. And the holes that do have trees, aren't anything special. Definitely a grip-n-rip course from start to finish with little thought needed towards line shaping.
- Course is bordered by roads on two sides, with a fair amount of traffic. Very little seclusion to be had anywhere on the course.
- A decent course that rewards distance over anything else. The biggest challenge is making sure you don't end up in a road somewhere. Great place for beginners to chuck some plastic, or for driving practice with some minor elevation changes.

This course is pretty good. It is by far the best disc golf course in Springdale and one of the best in the area. This course is 18 holes of variety. I dont think any of the holes were the same. The tee signs are very nice and look to be brand new. The baskets are monkey trap and they are very very nice. The course takes advantage of all of the trees and all of the hills in the park by usuing them to make the course more challenging and more fun. You wont lose a disc exept for maybe one hole.
Some of the baskets are too close to the road and cars could be hit. On 2 of the holes, you even have to throw across streets. The tee boxes are just a piece of wood at the front of the "tee box" They are natural tees (dirt and rocks). I really wish this course had some decent tee boxes. This course is super open and would not be a good idea to play in the summer when its super hot. They redid the baseball fence so on that hole, its even harder to jump the fence now.
Overall, Its a really fun course. It has lots of potentional to become the best in the area. The holes range from 300 to about 400 feet which is pretty typical. The course is also home to a cross country course. I always have fun playing this course, even when its hot. If youre in the area, you should try this course out.

Very few holes even have the potential to frustrate you; easy to navigate; I really liked the red baskets; this is a good course to get good scores and play when you just want to let your drives fly without adjusting for things in your way.
This course isn't very challenging; there are parts that aren't mowed and your disc can hide; holes nine and ten are way too close to the baseball fields and they like to keep all the entrances to the fields locked; there's a big cement block in the middle of the 2nd or 3rd hole where a house used to be and it's OB; lots of traffic on the surrounding roads.

Mostly open with trees to add difficulty.
No real possibility of losing a disc in the front 9.
Good use of space.
Too open to play on a very hot day.
Two of the holes run along side baseball fields and I've had to jump the fence to retrieve a few discs.
A few of the holes are placed right on the side of a hill making the approach shots difficult if you over throw but that also makes it more fun.

Course is very well maintained, almost no trash. Mostly open, but has some nice slightly wooded holes. Awesome signs and baskets. The signs look like they're made by houck design, but I'm not sure. Baskets are made by Disc Golf Monkey (called monkey traps) and catch very well. Good variety in hole distances (219-525). Good variety in hyzer/straight/anhyzer holes. Very creative O.B., but sometimes feels a little gimmicky.
No trash cans or benches. Tee pads are grass, but have a wooden plank to mark the front of them. Hole 8 has some weird rock tee pad right now that is horrible, so I just teed off to the right of it. 3 holes play right next to a busy road.
It was very windy when I played here. Other reviewers have complained about the distance and baseball fields. I thought the baseball fields made it better, but I guess other people don't like it. I don't know if the park has been redesigned or not, but I thought the distances were fair. Threw a disc into the road, and a car almost ran over it.
