Pros: In town, easy access, not busy at all.
Cons: When it rains, it floods. You can still play a round, just have to skip holes 2 & 7. Natural tees are hard to find, and easy to loose footing on. Its hard to figure out how to play the course as there are no signs, just markers in the ground that get grown over by grass.
Other Thoughts: I play here fairly often, and enjoy it. It sure would be nice to have some concrete launch pads. If you made it to this website, check out the map here to figure out how its laid out.

Pros: no people in the way, good long drives...in my home town , fast course, (only trees on #4) tees marked well...good ol freindly Texans
Cons: fast course..only 9 holes (no room for otheres though). It gets flooded since it is a rain ditch.
Other Thoughts: Midland needs another one, or a better one..the park on Wadley across Midland Collage would be good. It dose not compete with otheres in the west Texas at all. Though, it is still disc golf and still fun and you can throw a long way.

 sneaky water.

Pros: On a good day this course would be very nice. Few trees and no water hazards to eat your disk.
There are a few cross park baskets where you can really let a good throw go. This course is good for a quick game.
Cons: When it rains the inner part of the course fills with just enough water to be annoying. When it has rained and you try those cross park shots and don't quite make it cross park,you will inevitably land in sneaky water. Sneaky water is harmless for the most part, it just sits right below the grass line so you can't see it. So when you go to retrieve your disk you will encounter two things 1: " hahaha water" 2: " AWWWW CRAP water" the farther in you go, the worse it gets, filling your shoes with water, worse off it all sits right below the grass line, invisible. Also, No launching pads, We just playes from basket to basket. WATCH OUT FOR SNEAKY WATER.
Other Thoughts: spent a good 15 mins getting a disk out of a rather stubborn tree. fun.

Pros: Convenient location in town.
Nice short course for a lunch break round.
Layout is very conducive for "Safari" holes.
Cons: Park is a flood control basin; 1/2 in. of rain and at least 2 of the baskets are in a foot of water. 3 in. of rain and they can be covered. After rain it can be three or more weeks until basket 2 & 7 are dry enough to walk around.
The "Safari-ability" of this does make it playable a short time after a rain using all the perrimeter baskets.
Other Thoughts: I can't complain too much; It's across the street from my house!!

 Relaxing and simple

Pros: Nice wide open shots, few trees and a quiet location in the center of Midland. If you would like to work on distance or just a relaxing game this is a wonderful course. There are few trees so seeing the pin is a breeze. The baskets are in good condition with natural tees. The whole park is well manicured and clean, just watch out for sand spurs.
Cons: Course is very simple with some back tracking. Some re-arranging could make the course a bit more interesting. If you're looking for technical shots, you might want to make up your own course; you might need to anyway unless you have a guide as the holes aren't very well marked in the first place. As stated before, the tees are natural and aren't defined very well. Some of the tees are on a down-hill slope and have some ruts and dips.
Other Thoughts: First impression is overall quite nice for a small course. If you're in the area for some reason stop on by and enjoy working on your drives. The park itself is nice and quiet but with minimal parking (2 spaces are all I found). The course is overall a par 3 with maybe one or two that could be a par 4. A tip on the layout: the first tee is by the small parking lot on the right and flows around the park in a clock-wise fashion.
