Shady, Neighborhood Pitch and Putt With Panoramic Finish

Reviewed: Updated: Played on:Oct 11, 2020 Played the course:5+ times

Pros:

This short course makes most of space in small park.
+ nicely shaded course
+ well maintained
+ good use of trees and water as obstacles
+ good course for beginners
+ usually uncrowded

Cons:

There are a few rough areas to traverse around course.
- some rough spots in trees and brush on several holes just beyond fairways
- occasional foot traffic on holes #2-3 from local residents cutting through course
- minor inconvenience to cross spillway at start and creek between #7-8

Other Thoughts:

INFO
Dedicated disc golf area in private neighborhood park bordering local high school follows a path that winds through trees, around a creek (barely in play) and beside a small pond on final hole. Seven of the nine holes on this short course are under 250 ft. in length. Plenty of shade provides relief during hot summer months. Water usually only comes into play on the first and last hole, though standing water after rains pools in areas near creek. The walk between holes #7-8 requires going around or crossing creek.

EVAL
This beginner-friendly nine-hole course nestles into a neighborhood park along a trail cut through trees and creek debris. It offers mostly tricky pitch-and-putt opportunities for advanced players with good use of trees as obstacles, especially just beyond the tee on several holes. Most holes are set up to favor RHBH throws. Terrain is lightly wooded, cleared paths interspersed with a few grassy fairways and slight elevation changes on two holes. The last hole with its picturesque pond and fountain to the left of an open hillside fairway offers the only real opportunity to throw for distance off the tee down towards a protected green surrounded by a ring of trees.

NOTE
This course (and park), an amenity of The Wellington of Flower Mound Residential Association, is a private facility for the exclusive use of Wellington residents and their guests.

LAYOUT
(Course starts in woods beyond tennis courts and across small spillway.) Opening hole sits close to small pond which threatens to sink throws veering too far left. Holes #2-5 play along northern border of park with homes and high school property fenced off on the left of fairways which are lined with trees except #3 which is fairly open. Hole #6 in corner of park threatens creek OB for shots thrown too far past basket. Thick foliage borders hole #7 near washout area beside creek. (Long walk to next hole on other side of creek. Recommend climbing hill to #9 tee and walking back to #8 tee.) Next to last hole is a shaded uphill shot under a canopy of trees. Final hole throws past pond on left and across hillside down to trees circling green.

Pleasant Stroll Through the Park 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:Apr 8, 2019 Played the course:once

Pros:

Wellington of Flower Mound has a little bit of exclusivity to it. The park is generally supposed to be in use only by residents, but it did not seem to be an issue to play if you don't make a fool out of yourself.

Being "private" and "exclusive" it almost gives a country club feel. The holes are short, the grass is well manicured, and the park is taken care of. There are nice tee signs at each hole and small, yet adequate concrete tees. You won't be trekking through mud or climbing up hills. Instead, you will be treated by a pleasant stroll through the park. All you really need it a short fairway driver or less disc than that.

Being so short, there is potential to shoot really well, but there are enough obstacles that shooting 9 down is not the norm at all. Hole 9 is the only hole that you really will be throwing a long shot as it is the only hole over 300'. It is the only hole with slight elevation, and it is the only hole where the man made lake comes into play.

Cons:

The walk from hole 7 to hole 8 is wonky at best. There really is no clear trail from basket 7. I walked around to hole 9 then cut through the woods that way to get to hole 8, which seemed to work great.

A few holes play precariously close to the neighbors' backyard. A nooby RHBH hyzer can easily find the backyard on hole 2. I wouldn't recommend jumping the fence; remember, you technically are not supposed to be here.

No holes really stick out in my mind as really awesome holes. Hole 9 was the only longer hole and all the others sort of blur together as relatively, short, easy holes.

Other Thoughts:

Honestly, this is a solid course. My expectations were low with it being a private course, but it turned out to exceed my expectations. The holes really are not going to wow you in any way, but there is obvious love put into the park.

Great 9 Hole 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:Nov 29, 2018 Played the course:once

Pros:

Good Variety
Great Baskets
Nice signs
Great use of woods and water
Many Acable holes
Not many players so great

Cons:

You have to crosss over the concret damn to get to 1. I say just walk to the tee box for 2 and play 2 then 1 then 3

For 7 to 8 just walk accross all of 8 better than the forest water path

Other Thoughts:

Park in the lot with the club house for the pool and courts.
Walk BEHIND them you will see a concret damn to #1 or walk a little futher and just play 2 first

Everything is short and acable until 9

I do wish they added some distance i think they had the space

Wellington of Flower Mound Much Improved! 2+ years drive by

Reviewed: Played on:Oct 25, 2018 Played the course:5+ times

Pros:

- Excellent original design working with what they had in the park. Very challenging and fun little 9 hole course.
- For just 'a 9 hole', this is the most challenging 9 hole course in DFW.
- It is well lay-ed out and each fairway sign shows you the next tee-pad. Each hole has unique challenges and you'll need to be able to throw many different ways to beat this course.
- It has short technical lines, with water hazards on the 1st, 6th & 9th fairways. If you throw mostly hyzers, you're wet on #9.
- Since the 2018 summer trim, Fairway #1 now has a decent flight path and it's no longer impossible. It's still a challenge and there is still a chance a roller will get wet.

Cons:

- Wellington of Flower Mound's DGC is open to Wellington & near by Flower Mound residents. So "be from nearby Flower Mound", pickup your trash and be polite to the dog walkers, families and your neighbors. You are playing in a park that backs up to many large homes, so be NICE and they won't care if you borrow the course.
- Again, You do have to share the park with residents, dog walkers and high school kids paying volley ball or basketball. Share the park.
- To get from Fairway #7 to #8's teepad, it is easier to go into the woods right behind #7 basket, turn slightly right and walk up the cut path through the brush onto the back berm holding the small lake. Turn left and you'll go past Teepad #9 and see Basket #8. Walk to it, and you'll see #8 teepad down under great trees. Fairway #8 has a low roof from trees and the basket sits up the hill holding the back of the small lake.

Other Thoughts:

- The Wellington Property Managers walked the park with me in the 2018 summer along with their arborist and grounds crew manager. Although none play disc golf, the arborist 'got' my suggestions and became a 'friend to disc golf'. Fairway #1 although short was very difficult due to the ridiculous amount of scrub trees blocking the fairway and the slope of the ground down into the small pond created by a concrete damn. The short fairway was too hard for beginners who could end up 3-5 strokes over par before they stood at Teepad #2, and many lost discs into the pond. The arborist claimed some of the trees were dying from lighting strikes ( so do not play here when lightning is coming!) and he marked them for cutting. Now we have a decent fairway with a flight path to the basket.
The scrub growing on fairway #4 had nearly over taken the drive & the grounds crew reclaimed that fairway for us. They did an excellent job returning this hyzer shot back to us.
If you park at the Wellness Center / Tennis courts on 3040 & Furlong drive, you'll find teepad #1 in the trees across the small damn. If you use a cart, it's easier to walk around the pond past Teepad #2.

Fun, short, 9-hole course 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:Jun 26, 2018 Played the course:5+ times

Pros:

-- Beautiful park setting, and the disc golf course is the only activity in that area, so you shouldn't see non-disc golfers on the course.
-- Tee signs are good, as are the tee pads.
-- Map near the No. 1 tee.
-- Good lines for mostly shorter.
-- The flow is logical (except 7 to 8).
-- Trash cans.
-- Course doesn't overly favor one style of throwing (RHBH, etc.).
-- Many ace runs, but there are enough obstacles to make you work for a good score.
-- There is mulch in the fairways.
-- A lot of shade.

Cons:

-- Not cart friendly. To reach the first tee, most people will walk across a dam in the pond. Every 2-3 feet is a concrete "curb." Getting a cart over that is tricky. To go round that requires either a longer walk on a sloped bank toward the No.1 basket or a longer walk the other direction around the pond and toward the No. 9 tee. Also, the walk from 7 to 8 is long and the course directions take you through woods, etc. that would be extremely difficult with a cart. You can cross from 7 and come out by the No. 9 tee and walk up the No. 8 fairway since there is seldom much traffic on the course.
-- Only two holes longer than 220 feet and only one longer than 300.
-- Several baskets have the chains chained to the ground. Not a big issues, but a few of them are tight enough to impact putts, especially coming back.

Other Thoughts:

-- A RHBH thrower could end up in a neighbor's yard on No. 2 very easily; extra caution here is advised.
-- Water is only 20-25 feet behind the No. 6 basket.
-- This is a fun course, especially if you are not into grip-and-rip and prefer accuracy over distance.

Neighborhood Peace 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:Sep 24, 2016 Played the course:once

Pros:

Nice short solid 9 hole course.
Course map at hole 1.
Good tee sign.
Concrete tees.
Baskets in good shape.
Very well taken cared for course.
Mulch has been placed down in the wooded area to keep from getting too muddy.
Good mixture of right & lefty holes.
Trash cans on a few holes.
Really good for a quick round.
Also good for working on putter and mid game.

Cons:

A little too short.
A few baskets are chained down a looped into the chains.
The walk from 7's basket to 8's tee is a little bit of a walk and confusing.

Other Thoughts:

Great little course would be fun to have in the back yard.
Beginner friendly.
Course could of been stretched a little more.

A pleasant suprise 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:Mar 17, 2015 Played the course:once

Pros:

This is a well maintained course with good signage and excellent tee pads in a quiet neighborhood.
Rounds will play quickly and this is a good beginner course.
There are good lines here for the holes being on the shorter side.
The flow is logical and there were trash cans to help keep the littering down. Good pin placements to challenge but not frustrate and there were some low ceiling shots too.
1 uphill shot on #8 and a bit of a downhill shot on #9. Hole 9 also had a small water threat on the left hand side of the hole to keep you honest. There is a good mix of both left and right shots and many holes have ACE RUN potential. There is mulch in the fairways to help with erosion and compaction.
A more experienced player could use this course to help them improve their mid range game.

Cons:

The transition from 7's basket to 8's tee pad was a tad odd. You had to walk down/around/through a stream bed to get there. It was wet and slick upon my visit and seemed like maybe a better way could've been devised somehow.
I could see an errant throw for a RHBH thrower to make its way into a neighbor's yard on 2 very easily, extra caution here is advised.
6's tee pad might have debris/mud on it after a heavy rain but should still be playable.
Mostly flat with a couple of exceptions and the rough might be a tad thorny here or there, however it appears some clearing out has taken place recently.

Other Thoughts:

Honestly I was pleasantly surprised by this course. Yes the holes are short but I had fun here. I has just enough challenge to keep things interesting and the chance to run the chains is always fun. This would be a good warm up course before you go and play a longer course nearby, and its a good place to take a newer player to the sport that is looking for a bit of a challenge but doesn't want to feel overwhelmed.
If you are into a grip and rip course this is not the place for you. At the same time if you are looking for a wide open course again you will be disappointed.
If however you enjoy a shorter course that has just enough lines to hit then this course will hit the mark.

Building a New Course 2+ years drive by

Reviewed: Played on:May 12, 2013 Played the course:once

Pros:

Being the only course currently in Flower Mound, this 9 hole course is a good one to take someone who has never played disc golf before. It has short, wooded shots. Good for practice.

Cons:

The edges of the fairways are in need of cleanup. Thorns and weeds need to go. Wood chips aren't an awesome terrain for a fairway.

Other Thoughts:

Flower Mound announced a new course will be built in Heritage park. I have scouted every park in Flower Mound in hopes of building a course for the town, Heritage is huge and discgolf savvy, However I have found a better course. Me and a team have been planning the course for some time now, letting the seasons pass to view the change in terrain. We finally have all the pieces together now and are putting together our plans to submit to the town. The course will feature a clean creek (as opposed to a drainage creek), a few bomb shots, some lightly wooded shots, a few wooded fairways that will be properly cleaned, and shots across the creek and bridges. This course will feature the world's first water fairway (I might add, the most original and unique hole ever). The water fairway is gently flowing and never more than a foot deep with clean water and many many boulders and stones for the disc to land on and for the players to walk on. It is truly something you have to play to believe. More details to come (distances, difficulties, and photos.)

Short, but tricky 2+ years

Reviewed: Updated: Played on:Jun 19, 2012 Played the course:once

Pros:

- Clean park, with nice neighborhood scenery
- Variety of short, but very tight lines, it will definitely test your accuracy if not your power
- Nice concrete teepads
- Good signage, easy to navigate without a map

Cons:

- Hole 2 is a little close to the neighborhood, my friend hit a gust a wind and hit a house. The lady was nice though and gave him his disc back without any flack.
- The little creek is pretty stagnant and dank

Other Thoughts:

- If you want to improve your short game and accuracy, this is a good place to play, if not, it's just another notch in the belt
- Hole 9 is definitely 329', I google earth'd it

Scenic Birdiefest 2+ years drive by

Reviewed: Played on:Mar 3, 2012 Played the course:2-4 times

Pros:

This is a fun little course located in a very nice neighborhood community center. Most of the holes are very short, but several have enough trees to make things interesting and force you to make an accurate, sometimes uncomfortable throw. There is a little bit of elevation change on the last couple of holes, my favorite part of the course. The baskets are good, but could use more chains to catch discs....there are open spots to nothing but pole. Concrete tee boxes. Signs with hole number, distance, and diagram of the hole. Very well kept, nice looking course. I really enjoyed playing here.

Cons:

The course isn't anything spectacular, but there isn't anything wrong with a short, fun little neighborhood course. It is intended for use by those that live in the neighborhood technically, so it is great for that. The ground was extremely marshy between 7's basket and the pathway to hole 8. However, if you backtrack down 7's fairway you can use a bridge to get to 8's tee box.

Other Thoughts:

Hole 9's sign says 329 feet. It is NOT 329 feet, probably closer to 380 feet. It seemed like a couple of the other distances posted were incorrect also, but I don't remember which holes those were.

Notta bad 2+ years drive by

Reviewed: Played on:Mar 2, 2012 Played the course:2-4 times

Pros:

Notta bad little course. The fun factor is just ok but there was alot of work put in here. There are nice concrete tees on all the holes along with nice signage. The course is very easy to follow and isnt too hard on the new players. It is very righty friendly and there isnt really any place to lose plastic unless there is a really BAD shot. The course is a change even for the more advanced golfers as well. The holes are short but there are many holes with trees off the tee that can get ya. You have to be very accurate to score here and if your not your just going to par yourself to death. Hole 9 is purdy!

Cons:

The little creek that goes through there is pretty nasty. The drainage looks bad and it is still very muddy in spots even though it hasnt rained in quite some time. Backyards could come into play in certain areas. Not worth the drive alone to go here but if your in the area, get ya some.

Other Thoughts:

When I read previous reviews I went out expecting a baby course where there were going to be easy holes that provide no challenge and that was not the case at all. Yes the course is short but its not a birdie fest at all. As I was leaving I noticed a green brick in the ground marking 10's tee, so there are obviously a second set of tees but didnt have the time to look. I'll look for sure if I go back out here and update if I find them, if somone knows where they are let me know.

fun private course! 2+ years

Reviewed: Updated: Played on:Nov 23, 2011 Played the course:once

Pros:

-fun layout in a decently large neighborhood park
-concrete tees, brand new DGA baskets, nice signs
-nice mix of short wooded holes and slightly longer semi-open holes
-variety of shots needed but especially accuracy
-great beginner course for the community and school next door
-course map at start

Cons:

-creek looks prone to flooding
-thorny schule around holes 4-7
-poison ivy near the creek
-the path from 7-8 is muddy and steeply inclined in one spot, very slippery
-seems to be some trash accumulating already, hope it's not the discers
-needs more trash cans (there are 2: one at tee 4, one after hole 9
-hole 2 has backyards off the left of the fairway. noob-hyzers could easily go over the fence

Other Thoughts:

***Directions***
If you park at the athletic center on Furlong Dr, go between that building and the tennis courts and cross the concrete path to the other side of the pond. First hole in the trees just past the course map.
***

The course is set in a small neighborhood park in a private community. The park was bigger than I expected it to be and has a large man-made pond (in play on hole 9). The course is really well setup with quality baskets, signs, and concrete tees.

The course plays around the back area of the park. Holes 1, 5, 6 play through narrow woods. Holes 4 and 7 are hyzers. Holes 3 and 9 are mostly open and holes 2 and 8 are semi-open. There is a cool overhand window on hole 8.

If you aren't comfortable parking at the main lot, the park looks to be accessible from the back off Burlington Dr. The entrance should put you right next to the tee for hole 2.

The course is easy but fun. The holes are short enough to be beginner friendly on the wooded holes and mostly short in general. The holes are also tricky enough that int/adv players can make some easy mistakes.

A great beginner course for the community. A fun 9 holes if you live or happen to be nearby. Nothing to write home about otherwise.

Trees Make it Challenging 2+ years drive by

Reviewed: Played on:Nov 21, 2011 Played the course:once

Pros:

For beginners, this is a good park to start out at since all the baskets are within a short distance. Very well laid out with beautiful scenery if you like the woods. Great exercise for a mini hike...

Cons:

Hole 2 is the worst when it comes to soil. It's very soft and feels like quicksand so watch out for that. Trees are in the way that make it almost impossible to have a good drive but luckily I was able to throw around the trees.

Other Thoughts:

Private community park. Nobody bothers you or questions you.

nice little course 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:Nov 15, 2011 Played the course:once

Pros:

Very nice little 9 holes course tucked between a pond, creek and homes.

The holes are short, but not necessarily easy.

the course is very well marked and easy to find your way, after you find hole 1.

Cons:

Not very challenging. Short holes and all but one were right to left hyzer shots.

Privet course technically not open to the public.

Other Thoughts:

I just parked in the main parking lot and walked over to the course with my putter and Roc. I pretty much had a putt on every hole except the one I hit the tree right in front of the tee pad.

the course was fun enough that I nearly played two rounds. It did only take me about 15-20 to play all 9 holes.

Nice little 9 hole course 2+ years drive by

Reviewed: Played on:Nov 4, 2011 Played the course:once

Pros:

Nice use of land available on this shorter 9 hole course. It weaves around trees and the fairways are well defined by trees, fences, or other boundaries. The signs help with navigation and while this is a short course, it can be challenging to find your line on some holes. This is also a good course for newbies.

Cons:

First off, its private so play at your own risk (more about that later). Also, its near a high school so I saw a few kids walking across the course while skipping school. While its not too close, the course boarders houses on a few holes so an errant toss could end up in a backyard.

Other Thoughts:

As other people have said, if you park in the main lot and don't act crazy or have to many people, you probably won't be messed with by the community. While its private, I talked to several people while playing and never was asked about where I live etc.

Technical 9 Hole 2+ years drive by

Reviewed: Played on:Sep 24, 2011 Played the course:2-4 times

Pros:

Short technical course with well placed baskets. Course was cut out of very thick, unusable terrain and has been very well kept. The signs and tee pads exceed expectations for a 9-hole neighborhood course. Each hole allows for multiple lines. While course can be technical, it can be played quickly. Set up is good for beginners and experienced disc golfers alike. Hole #9 is the signature hole and makes you want to play the round again - if only to make that tee shot one more time.

Cons:

This course is what it is. There are no cons in the layout or overall design.

Other Thoughts:

Fun course with a good mix of short, technical runs and the occasional 'air it out shot'. The locals are predominately new to the game and have truly embraced the sport. This HOA has definitely paid to have things done the correct way.

Quiet 9 Hole Private Course 2+ years drive by

Reviewed: Played on:Sep 12, 2011 Played the course:once

Pros:

Well kept property. Holes were short, but well place trees made it challenging enough. Great course for beginners.

Concrete pads, professional signs, and quality baskets are above what I would expect in a small neighborhood course.

There was a school that neighbored the course and I believe this could be an excellent opportunity to teach the sport in a youth program at that school.

Cons:

Private course designed for the Wellington community and it's guests. I had no issues parking at the private athletic facility and playing the course by myself, however I do believe that if a large group arrived to play it might draw attention and the possibility of being asked to leave could arise.

Other Thoughts:

I'll come back to this course if I'm in the area. Nothing new or spectacular, but it's always great to see a community adopting disc golf.
