A worn-out novelty course
4 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -There are baskets (multi-colored!) and the flow of the 9-hole layout isn't actually terrible from a golf perspective. Since the park wasn't too busy when I played, I did actually have fun throwing my discs.
-Someone found it worth their while to put a course here! Personally, I think that's always a good thing.
Cons: -The baskets are homemade but not very good. (I vaguely remember being surprised at sticking a 25' putt)
-The biggest problem for me is the first few holes around a playground, picnic/gazebo structure, etc.
-Lack of upkeep: some tee markers missing, baskets in disrepair overall - the disc golf course hasn't grown with the park
-Navigation: even if the tees were present, they would be very hard to find because they don't stick above the ground. I threw to wrong baskets at least once or twice.
Other Thoughts: Every course is worth playing once, as long as it's not too far out of the way and you have some time to spare. I played this quickly on the way out to Harrah to play a much nicer 9-hole course.
This is a course that was probably once a cool novelty, but the gradual disappearance of some tee markers, worsening basket condition, challenging navigation, and likelihood of hitting children/park users mean that I won't be coming back unless there are some improvements. I'll go "1.0" for "poor," though I'd love to be forced to come back to be convinced to upgrade it.

Pros: +nice park
+grass is cut
+baskets are amusing in their pathetic own little way
Cons: -everything else
Other Thoughts: Avoid this steaming smelly pile of dog poop at all costs. You wouldn't think a course rated around 1.6 on this website could be extremely overrated, but this course is just that. Maybe at one time there were bricks in the ground to mark the tee boxes, but they seem to have all been lost to the ravages of time. You could make up your own tees, but then you'll be throwing around playground equipment and a walking path, and you'll certainly be disgusted by the ugliest baskets known to man.

time is brutal
Pros: -there are baskets
-there is a small OB creek
-there are reasonable obstacles on most holes
-some of the tees (unmarked) are obvious from wear
-nice, clean park with 2 pavilions, sports fields, skate park, bathrooms
-plenty of parking
Cons: -baskets are very old, rather small, and often too high
-tees are totally unmarked and only discernible by the wear in the grass
-park is crowded with pedestrians
-the holes are mostly short and boring
Other Thoughts: This course feels typical of OKC courses but is easily the worst in condition. It must have been an awesome course in 1991 but now the baskets are antiques and the tees are nearly nonexistent. There is a small, concrete-lined creek running through the park that comes into play on holes 1, 2, 6, & 7 and the pedestrian path can also be played OB and beyond for an extra challenge. There is usually at least some obstacle to work around in the fairway; hole 6 has a nice line of trees creating a line on the right and the left.
The tees are totally unmarked but many are obvious from the wear on the grass. It is easy to back up anywhere from a little to a lot on most tees if you want to make your own "pro" tees. There are numerous safari options but there are also lots of pedestrians and multi-use areas.
This course doesn't have much going for it. The holes are not very interesting and the equipment leaves a lot to be desired. But with not many other options nearby I supposed the locals make do. Locals and course baggers only; go anywhere else in OKC if you're visiting.

Playable Neighborhood Course
Pros: Baskets (seem to catch fine)
A few lines to hit
Creek-OB comes into play on several holes
A little challenge
Decent to work on mids with a few drivers worked in
Good for family/newbies
Playground for the kids
Plenty of benches/picnic tables
Plenty of parking
Not crowded when I played
Favorite Hole(s): #6
Cons: Baskets need a little work/bigger numbers
Dirt tees get muddy
Lots of bare ground that gets muddy
No signage whatsoever
Tees are hard to find.
Plays across the walking path several times (not a big deal to me, it wasn't busy)
Plays around a pavillion, a soccer field, and numerous picnic areas. Could cause people problems.
Not much challenge
Several holes seem repetetive
Navigation isn't easy (thanks cap-tan for the directions)
Seems a little short but not too bad
Not a lot of variety
Almost no risk/reward
I didn't notice any restrooms
Other Thoughts: This is a well kept, clean course to play if you need a quick nine holes. I wouldn't recommend driving very far to play it. If I lived in the neighborhood I would probably play it often for decent practice. Several tees could be moved slightly and tee of of the concrete walking path. Not a horrible course just not a great amount of fun. With a little work this would be a decent course.
If you are going through the area and need a quick nine swing by. Other than that don't bother.
My "disc rating" is based heavily on fun factor which this course didn't have much of. I then adjust it up or down a little based on amenities which this course had little of.
PM me and tell me how I can improve on my reviews to be more "helpful."

Pros: It's right down the street from my house haha
Cons: Crappy baskets, tees are difficult to find, alot of kids and other public obstacles and dirt tees.
Other Thoughts: The first tee is located at the south end of the park next to the pavilion and the basket is to the west next to the creek, the second tee box is in the far southwest corner next to a fence, the basket is located to the north next to the creek(past the first basket on the left), from the 2nd basket go straight west and there is the 3rd tee, the 3rd basket is straight north from there. the 4th tee is to the west of the 3rd basket next to the fence with the 3 dogs in the back yard, this is where you shoot over the soccer field to the north towards the large tree, the basket is right next to it. the 5th tee box is in the far northwest corner and the basket is located to the south east between 2 trees(south of the pavilion)from that basket the 6th tee box is to the south west, and the 6th basket is to the south next to the creek. the 7th tee box is to the east across the creek and the basket is at the far north east corner of the park, after that basket go back south and across the creek there is a bald spot where you tee off for 8. the 8th basket is behind the big annoying bush to the north of the public restrooms. continue south to the end of the ramp with the handrail and that is the 9th tee box next to the tree. the 9th basket is located to the south behind a small(but annoying)tree. if those directions are too confusing, follow a local. we know the course very well.

Pros: Nice practice and nice variety of holes.
Cons: The little cement creeks and gravel trail will tear up your discs. Sometimes there is a soccer game in the middle of hole 4. Tees are a bit difficult to find if you don't know where you are going.
Other Thoughts: I play this several times a week and it's a little slice of perfection :-)

There are baskets......
Pros: This course has baskets and is open with little hazards. Park is kept clean.
Cons: A friend and I found this course very confusing. There is almost no signs of any kind to let you know what basket you are throwing to. We were only able to find 2 markers for tee boxes. The rest of the round consisted of us making up our own holes and just denoting a bare spot in the grass as the tee box.
Other Thoughts: While I would not recommend this course in any way it does offer new players a chance to just get used to throwing at a basket. If Midwest City would just put a little effort time and effort into the course it would be a viable quick 9 durring lunch.

Does not compare...
Pros: The only good things about this course are: 1) There are holes, 2) There are obstacles, 3) I found a disc on it once.
Cons: The many this wrong with it are: 1) Each hole seems to be 100-200ft; not even enough for a decent drive, 2) There are no Tee locations, 3) There are no designated flight paths, 4) There are WAY too many public obstacles, i.e. kids running every whichway, people just out walking, birthday parties, close housing/roadways to holes, etc. 5) The baskets' rims are too narrow, 6) The baskets' chain-diameters are not wide enough, 7) The baskets are not well marked, 8) The wind through that area is unhindered and brutal
Other Thoughts: On a lighter note, the people inhabiting the outlining houses are kind enough to return over-/miss-thrown discs

Side Trip to Kiwanis
Pros: This is very clean park/course. There is a playground nearby and within sign of every basket. The parking is easy and plentiful on both sides of the park. The baskets are present and in ok condition.
Cons: My biggest issue is the fact that this course has public obstacles throughout. Picnic tables, the playground, and a running/walking path. There were a few times that I had to wait to drive because of people walking around. The baskets are all marked and the situation with the tee's are worse. I couldn't find all the starting points during the game.
Other Thoughts: I wish that this course was in the park near my house. This can be a great practice course for putting and short drives.
As for the tee pads, look for out of place dirt patches in the logical places for starting points. This helped me alot. Oh and also, tee #1 is on the cement next to the brick wall. I didn't see this till after my game.

Pros: There are baskets here. The park is very clean and well manicured. It is a very cool park right off of the road and it has good elevation. Safari golf is the only thing that I see is possible here which is what I did for the most part, therefore you can throw any shot that you feel like, ranging from your short game to the long one. There is a park for the kids to play in if you want to get them out of the house while you play.
Cons: The baskets are poor at best. The navigation is impossible, I only found one set of bricks on the entire course. Some of the baskets arent numbered so you dont really know where to go. There are parkgoers everywhere which gets kind of interesting at times.
Other Thoughts: There is lots of potential here if they would just mark some tees. I dont think it is worth the drive off of the interstate to play here and barely worth it to add to the course count.
