Pros: Good mix of shots. Some wooded holes, some open holes, some low ceilings, good mix of left and right turns. Different pin positions for some variety.
Cons: Tee boxes are a bit short. Some of the fairways make no sense and you just have to throw at a bunch of trees and hope you miss them all (#6 and a few of the wooded holes, I think maybe #12 was particularly bad?). Was kind of hard to find #16 after #15. No par 4/long holes. A couple of the longer holes are in that weird distance range where no one can reach them in 1 shot but they're super easy to reach in 2 shots (#1, #7 unless you go straight at it and get insanely lucky, maybe #16 but somehow I managed to put my drive inside the circle for the 2). #1 would be a great par 4 if the basket was back another 150'. None of the holes really stood out as amazing.
Other Thoughts: Way better than the coyote course at the same park

Pros: The Back 9 and the holes over the pond are fantastic.

Challenging, bring all your discs because they all serve a purpose here.

The park being almost exclusively used for Disc Golf is great, you don't have to worry about other pedestrians using the park for anything else.
Cons: The Front 9 is very lackluster in my opinion with the exclusion of holes 8 & 9. 1-7 Are all just positioned right next to each other next to the parking lot, and when compared to the Back 9 or the other course on site, it's just not as appealing.

Holes 1-7 are super muddy right now.
Other Thoughts: Overall it's a good course, just not as good as it's sister course in my opinion.

Pros: Great variety of trees, elevation and a little water. Concrete tee pads. Two other courses next to it. Well maintained. Challenging. Not very much of a chance to lose a disc.
Cons: Heard of snakes but never seen one. Thorny vines in rough areas. Some vandalism.
Other Thoughts: Yes this is one of my home courses. This course has just about everything. You will use every shot on this course. There is uphill, downhill, short, long, over water, old growth open areas. Tighter tunnels turning in different directions.
Bring a bag with variety because you will use everything you got to play this course as well as you can. Best in DFW with its sister course.

Pros: -Great use of terrain and water.

-Not much non-DG traffic out there.

-Nice signage.

-There is a portapotty!

-Beautiful mature trees and secluded location make this a wildlife haven.
Cons: -Poison ivy and thorns.

-Hole 9 is unrealistic as par 3 if in the long position- you literally have to have 2 perfect throws to hit it in 3.

-Apparently "MELK" was here.

-Grass could use some cutting.
Other Thoughts: -Lots of people commented on the tee pads being too short. I found that the holes that have short pads were short holes (do you really need a giant run up to throw 200ft?)

-This pair of courses is the best I've been to in DFW.

Pros: Tee Pads, signs, baskets with #s on every hole. Good mix, at a par 54 it isnt a gimme. Some birdie holes, some tough 3's. Ive been playing for 5 years and I feel I could par this place after 10 or less tries. Pros would find it too easy. I brought a new player, he had fun without too much play from the rough. You will need most of you discs here. A forehand shot will prove beneficial too.
Cons: Poisonous Snake territory. One hole over grown.
Other Thoughts: Fix the few tees that are too short. Otherwise the place played well and was fun and challenging for a 880 rated player.

Pros: Clean and maintained course. Concrete tee pads. Every basket has the coordinating hole number on top of the basket so you don't have to guess which basket to throw to. More open holes and dog legs left and right.
Cons: More area to park. A better way to determine which holes go with coyote and which holes go with beaver. The signs on holes are faded and need to be redone. If you miss and land in the rough you will be looking for about 10-15 minutes and hope you find your disc.
Other Thoughts: I enjoyed the course, I liked Beaver better than Coyote. I enjoyed the more open and variety of shots on the course.

- Nice variety of open and wooded holes, right and left dog legs
- Clean, not overly crowded park
- Equally challenging both in accuracy and power
- Some teepads are too short
- A little frustratingly tight. Many holes just feel like "chuck and pray" - requiring as much luck as skill
- Thorns!
Other Thoughts:
I probably had too high of expectations based on the ratings of this course. It was fun, but not that much better than many other courses in north Dallas.

Pros: This is one of two courses in the park, the Beaver course is a bit longer and a bit less technical. There are some longer shots that offer a chance to air it out with large grassy fairways and lurking brush. The rest of the course plays through the woods with a mix of shorter ace run chances and some longer shots that test your shot making ability without being too tight.

The rough is thick enough to cost strokes if you miss your line, but not so thick that it eats too many discs. The three holes by the pond are a nice way to mix things up with more open holes that still offer some tricky risks if you go for the birdies.

The concrete tees are in fine shape, as are the baskets. Tee signs are color coded to show which course they belong to, a nice touch in the area where the two play near one another. The alternate pin placements change things up nicely, if they're moved regularly it could offer some extra variety.
Cons: The signage is faded and damaged, many are difficult or impossible to read. That gets a little frustrating, with some longer holes and some blind shots in the woods. The ones that are readable don't have the current pin position marked, so it doesn't always save you the walk to figure out where to throw.

The tees are a bit small, and some were covered in mud washed over them in a previous storm. The fairways were all dry when I played, but a few showed evidence of being pretty muddy when wet. There are a few of the wooded holes that feel a bit repetitive, there was room for a little more creativity in lines with this much wooded property.
Other Thoughts: I had a great time at this complex, with two very fun courses that complement each other well. I played the Coyote course after the first 16 of this course to save the extra walk to and from the parking lot.

Beginners might find this course a bit long and tough, and the rough could get frustrating for a player without good line shaping skills. More experienced players will find this course a good test, with some length and a few tricky lines, and the two courses combined offer a great balance of different challenges.

Pros: 18 concrete tees with nice tee signs and baskets. A couple holes have multiple pins. Good hole design and variety of shots with the available terrain and elevation. Fairways are well defined and bad shots typically punished. Lots of turtles and wildlife. Portapotty in parking lot. Disc golf only park.
Cons: Mud!!! I've seriously never had so many problems with mud on a course before. I guess some people maybe used to Texas soil, but this was ridiculous! Holes 5,6,7 had a lot of mud. This mud sticks to your shoes and just keeps building on them. My shoes must have weighed 10lbs each before scrapping some of it off. I had issues on the tees because my the bottoms of my shoes weren't level and also people use the tees to scrape the mud off their shoes.

Hole 9's fairway was ponded over, so you have to go around the long way to get to the other side . I got lost and then lost my disc and visual reference from the tee once I got back to the fairway. Navigation was a little tricky on the course on the back 9.

Trash on the course. I found someone's underwear on hole 8 near the turtle. Poison Ivy in the rough. Parking lot is small for one course let alone two courses.
Other Thoughts: I like Beaver....it was my favorite of the two Lester Lorch courses, even though the mud was worse. The holes are more diverse and just better IMO. Hole 1 was my favorite in the park.

For people out of town like myself, I'd make sure the course is dry before playing here. I'd probably rate a little higher if it weren't for the mud.
