Pros: -- Fabulous piece of land with a ton of elevation changes. Sometimes, you are throwing downhill and uphill on the same hole. This is a beautiful place to walk/hike, even if you are not playing disc golf.
-- A fairly narrow creek is in play on a bunch of holes on the front nine. You can retrieve your disc from there, but you will pay a price.
-- The park itself is tremendous, with first-rate facilities (restrooms) and excellent walking paths.
-- While there are not truly long holes, hole variation of 220-430ish with plenty of trees and forced (often tight) lines gives you plenty of variation.I threw mids off some tees on longer holes because I knew I couldn't reach the basket, so I opted to try for placement over distance.
Cons: -- The rough is really rough. While there are a few places that seem like jail, this is more of an issue of briers so thick you will leave some DNA recovering your disc.
-- Some tees are too close to the preceding basket. This was especially true on the front nine. Three/four and 5/6 are the biggest examples.
-- The sign on 15 indicates a nearly straight shot from tee to basket when in reality, the path is a pretty hard right turn for RHBH throwers.
-- The pro of uphill and downhill can be a con because it is frequently difficult to see whether the hole is clear. We frequently had to walk ahead to see, and once (No. 12) we overlooked a group down in a ravine and plunked another disc golfer.
-- Holes 2-17 are across the road from 1 and 18 and the parking. That (and some other issues) create some long walks between holes. It also creates an issue that forces people walking from 17 to 18 to walk directly through the No. 2 tee. When it happened to us on No. 2, I assumed we were dealing with a lazy or lost group. Nope. They were following directions.
Other Thoughts: -- I have listed more cons that pros for a 4-disc rating, but the pros are so strong that they outweigh many of the cons. And some of the cons will get better with time and play.

Pros: A wooded course that has great elevation changes but also lets you throw big. The course is challenging and long. I would not recommend beginners come out to this course. The baskets are brand new, the tee pads are fresh and the facilities are nice. There is a plumbed toilet for both sexes at the beginning of this course with 2 water fountains. The course is laid out very well and the baskets have arrows in the bottom to show you where the next hole is.
Cons: This course needs the mesquite thorns cut out ASAP. Throwing in the rough can break your spirit quickly if you allow it. When it rains, this course is muddy and seems to have some drying issues. This will probably not be true in the warmer months. The pads will be muddy, rain or shine.
Other Thoughts: Like many have said, this course is difficult. However, it is the best course on the north side of Dallas. (I still love you Lake Park, but it is true) This is a true gem, and if they take care of the thorn issue, this course would get a 4.5. When you play, bring a snack and a good amount of water. Our foursomes were carrying a near 3 hour game time.
Edit: Left a dangling sentence that needed me to finish up my thought.

 An Austin-Esque Course in DFW

Pros: Great tunnels
More elevation change than any other course in DFW
Cons: Extremely punishing rough (both in score and thorns)
Sometimes impossible to reach basket by following the fairway, must throw over the top for a birdie.
Other Thoughts: Difficulty (4.5/5): This was a tough one to measure. There are narrow fairways with extremely dense rough, which is going to create a large gap between amateur players and pro players. Especially considering that the Par 4's would be "soft" for pros. ~350 tunnel for a Par 4 can make for a lot of birdies and eagles, but if you kick off the fairway, the best you can do is pitch back out. I am firmly in the amateur camp though, so this course is more than enough of a challenge for me.

Maintenance (5/5): The course has only been open for 2 weeks, so take this with a grain of salt. But the amenities were top notch here. Benches, concrete teepads, brand new baskets (obviously). Informative, colorful tee signs. I can't think of anything I would want to add to this course as far as maintenance related things go. Hopefully the grass is mowed frequently.

Variability (3/5): The bulk of the holes have some sort of right to left movement on them. Then there are a handful of straight shots, and only a few left to right. The exact shape of the shots are slightly different each time because of trees and elevation changes so it's not a pure hyzer fest. But for the most part, you're stepping up to the tee and trying to hit a gap and fade left.

Flow/Experience (4.5/5): Each basket has an arrow built into it to point to the next tee, which was fantastic and accurate. Made navigating an afterthought. Hole 1 and Hole 18 are on the opposite side of the highway from the rest of the course, which provides for the longest walks in the round, but it's really not a problem to find your way.

Other Thoughts: This course reminds me a lot of a course you would find in the Austin area. Tight woods, punishing rough, and lots of elevation change. It would likely be an average to somewhat above average course in Austin, but is a phenomenal addition to the DFW area because of how unique it is compared to other, nearby courses.

Pros: People say in reviews all the time that "it has really unique shots". I say it a lot. But this course really does.

There are some strange shaped fairways here, and I mean good strange. Elevation makes these holes even crazier. I stared down the holes while waiting my turn, and tried to decided between 5 different shots in my head that won't quite do what the hole requires. It'll challenge you. it's very difficult. And it's awesome.

The elevation's affect on this course can't be overstated. It's not a bunch of crazy elevation change, it's just having elevation change at the critical places that strengthen the holes. This in addition to the tight lines make it very challenging.

This course is in a very, very nice park. And while a nice atmosphere is not an absolute necessity, being in a park in a town that has money to keep in looking awesome is a major plus.
Cons: There are a few things that I'm listing that mainly have to do with it being a brand new course. I think these will be corrected, so understand that I'm listing these just to accurately describe the course as it currently is. The rough is really rough. I don't mean "there's no way to throw out of here" rough, more "there's brier vines and thorns and other sharp crap all in here". Over time these will get worn down by traffic in the places people throw into all of the time, but it's pretty bad right now. It's also very muddy in many places, a lot of that due to recent construction (fresh dirt torn up in places). What mud is from this and what mud will be permanent remains to be seen.

The biggest issue I see here is how close many of the tees are to the previous pins. Many are really much closer than what is comfortable. This isn't going to be an issue for the very best players. But you get a lot of guys that just throw the piss out of it with no control, and some of these tees are going to get thrown on, especially in a tournament, so watch out.

The transition to hole 2 is kinda awkward, you have to know to go under the bridge. it just needs a sign or something.
Other Thoughts: I was going to wait since I didn't want to be the first reviewer, but I guess I'm just gonna post it now.
