It looks like the course will need a complete redesign. If they don't use any new land (across the road from 17 tee?) it looks like it may lose 3 holes minimum.

Losing this course is a tragedy for the DFW area. It was easily the best place to play after it rained and was always fun. Too bad.

Wow, this is one of my favorite courses in DFW if not my favorite. Many of the holes will have to be reconfigured. Additionally, I wonder what effect the walking trail will have on tournament play now.. It seemed like DD held a tournament there once a month.

Since DD left Lewisville that'll decline quite a bit I'm sure. But yeah, they've got some work to do out there. Gonna be interesting to see what the new update will look like.

That's not great news...walking paths are course killers. I'm hopeful this isn't the end of Lake Park as a fun 'change-of-pace' course from what most of Dallas has to offer, but I'm not super optimistic.

Walking paths and disc golf courses can co-exist, look at Harry Myers, The Cedars and Audubon, and the newest addition Robert W. Lytle course at Founders Park in Oak Cliff. The designers are potentially killing the course (or a walker, heh). Hopefully they have enough foresight to see the issue and make sure things are taken care of so that both type of park patrons win.

There's a lot happening in Flowermound, 250 acres of land around Lake Lewisville is being sold to the highest bidder and apparently it's going to be sold to a drilling company. I think the locals only have a few days to file a complaint/petition or something to slow down or stop the process.

Those are drilling leases on public land. Even if they are leased by a drilling company, it doesn't mean they will actually drill. If they use the most modern methods, the only way you'll know they are there is by the truck traffic.

Just hoping they don't lock up a good chunk of land real estate that can't be used for the park or public.

Wow. Thanks for the photos. Makes me so sad to see the changes. I hope they can make it better than it was before, but I'm still going to miss the old layout. I bet Old Man Tom would not have approved of this renovations!
