Pros: Excellent descriptive signage, including overall course map and signs at each tee pad.
Nice, large, level concrete tees (sometimes two) on each hole.
Course navigation is easy, intuitive, and also well-marked. I can't imagine someone getting lost.
Variety of hole distances and good use of long and short tees on holes that newer players would benefit most from short tees. There are several short holes, but they require good angle control as well as distance control.
Great use of elevation for tee and pin locations, including uphill and downhill shots and baskets placed on slopes such that pin location must be considered off the tee or on approach.
Beautiful piece of property with water in play on several holes and elevation used for maximum effect.
Cons: No other park amenities.
Street parking only.
Perhaps not too cart friendly, due to hills and creek crossings.
Other Thoughts: This is an exceptional nine-hole course. It is easy to forget that you are in a small park on a short course. Many of the holes feel like they belong to some of the best courses I have played anywhere. The space is used to its maximum potential for disc golf, in my opinion.

Good for beginners
Pros: Perfect course for beginners with two exceptions.
Cons: Those two exceptions being the long tee on 4 and the tee off 7. Both run a very high risk of losing your disc into a pond you cant see the bottom

Pros: -- Nice course map at hole 1.
-- Variation in length of holes (1 from the blues is 567 feet while four holes can play less than 200 feet).
-- Perhaps the best/easiest navigation of any course I have played. "Next tee" signs hanging from the bottom of each basket. The one on No. 5 was pointing in the wrong direction, but that has been corrected. A couple of tees/baskets seem a little close on first glance, but after several plays, I have come to realize that problems are extremely unlikely.
-- Elevation. Almost all holes have you throwing uphill or downhill.
-- Tee pads and tee signs are new and in good shape.
-- New Innova DiscCatcher baskets. No. 1 was damaged and repaired, but one side of the catching basket is 4-6 inches higher than the other side.
-- Other than a walking path, which doesn't seem to get a ton of use, and a soccer practice field that you walk past but don't throw near, there is nothing else in the area.
-- Water in play on three (five if you stretch it) of nine holes, but two of those (4 and 9) give you a shorter red tee that takes away almost all of the water danger. No. 4 is about 300 feet across the water, so the 144-foot red tee was welcomed.
-- Multiple tee pads on three holes.
-- Practice basket west of No. 1 short tee, but it is now leaning.
-- Stepping stones on the path to Nos. 7 and 8 tees, which tends to be muddy.
Cons: -- None of the amenities such as bathrooms, water or benches at the tee pads.Only three trash cans, and two of them are at Nos. 1 and 9, so really only one trash can out on the course.
-- Parking is on the street.
-- No. 8 basket is leaning.
-- Can be really muddy. On my first visit in May, recent rains really made some fairways a muddy mess, but on a second visit in late June, almost everything was dry 60 hours after a big rain. On my most-recent visit in February), mud/water covered half of the course and two tee pads despite there not having been any rain in the past four days.
Other Thoughts: -- The danger on two of the water holes is somewhat obscured. On 7, water is 10 feet away from the basket on what is definitely an ace run (218 feet downhill). On 9, trees and tall grass obscure a small creek. It's not hard to clear (or to dig a disc out of), but if you clip a tree, you could end up wet. Water is also about 25 feet from the basket on 8, but given the line to the basket and the low tree limbs, you are unlikely to reach the water.
-- While there are no "signature" holes (the exception might be the 333 foot downhill long tee on No. 4 that is a water carry), there are also no filler or boring holes.
-- The local home owners association pays for the course (and upkeep). That means it really is intended for the home owners (which makes the lack of parking understandable). Visitors are welcome, but we should remember we are visitors and act accordingly.
-- There appears to be room to add 9 more holes to make this an 18-hole course with more water in play and views of big water. However, given who runs it and the target audience, I don't think that is likely.

unique and fun
Pros: -awesome plot of land, great design that takes advantage of the terrain
-major elevation changes
-12 concrete tees, 9 discatchers
-additional long tees on 1, 4, 9
-many trees, creek, pond, and hillside baskets
Cons: -drainage issues near the creek, causes flooding on hole 3's tee
-the shorter holes are beginner friendly but the creek on the course and the pond on 4 adds danger and challenge
Other Thoughts: ***Update***
The course has been redesigned with two new holes to make 9 holes. Hole 4 has a new long tee and the old long tee is now the short tee, so everyone must clear the pond. Same thing applies to hole 9 (except it's a creek, no pond). Holes 5 & 6 are the new holes and both but especially 6 have some elevation to deal with on the fairway and the green. Hole 7 (old hole 5) now has a shorter tee that doesn't play across the walking path. New trees have also been planted in a few key areas, especially hole 5. In general the course has been cleaned up, trimmed, and is in great condition for play.
This is a great little course that got neglected for awhile, I assume due to its out of the way location inside a gated housing development. It is in much better condition now.
I had a blast playing here. The holes are really well designed and it fits perfectly on the plot of land making great use of the features available: elevation, creek, pond. Hole 1 is a great downhill bomb.
It is hard to justify going out of your way for only 7 holes but this place really has its charm. Definitely worth playing if you are nearby or if you're willing to drive a bit for a fun little course that you can play several times for a nice outing.

Best 5 hole course in Texas
Pros: This review was on the old layout, the course has totally changed and I will re-review it when I get a chance to play it.
Tee pads and signs were all there.
Pro/Am tee pads on #1, #4, #7
Great use of the land.
Creek and pond both come into play
Cons: #6 and #7 baskets are both missing making it a 5 hole course.
#3 tee box had 1" of water and muck on it. I did fix it to drain for now though.
Even if the basket was not missing, hole #6 is not a good hole.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed playing this course today.
for those of you who think the course can be expanded, it can't. There is a ball golf course back there.
However, I don't see why John didn't make a shorter 9 hole course. The area that has #1 could easily hole 3 holes playing back and forth. There is room.
but with only 7 holes and baskets missing, it is not worth playing on a regular bases.
Me, I played it to finish out every DFW course.
