Nice starter course
Pros: Light traffic as far as other players goes, never crowded. Good course for learning. As others have mentioned, a good place to just make up your own holes or stand at one basket and practice putting for a while. Restrooms. Water accessibility on the north and south ends of the course. Snow cone stand for those hot summer months.
Cons: It is in a city park, so you have to deal with people walking through your flight path. The course is hard to follow if you don't know where the bricks are. The baskets are pretty bad, but if you can play them well, you can play about any basket. No alt pads, no pads at all for that matter.
Other Thoughts: My understanding is that hole number 9 starts at the end of the sidewalk leading from the restrooms to the playground area directly to the left of the big tree. There is one brick there that is well out of the ground and others there half buried in similar fashion to the other markers.
Note: when playing hole number one it is a good idea to scan the area for other people before throwing since you have to throw around the pavilion; taking someone else with you and "spotting" for each other works fine.

Pros: This course is an excellent course for practice. People play it all kinds of ways beacuse they dont realize there are bricks in the ground. Every hole but 5 has bricks. And hole 5 got a basket back up. You can work on every part of your game there. Hole one is marked with 2 white dashes right by the big pavilion. Hole 9 is marked with one white dash one the concrete pad the little cazeebo is setting on in the middle of the park.
Cons: Theres really not that many cons. I live in the neighborhood right beside the park and play there every day. Very seldom is anyone in my way. And if they are its usually just a person walking or jogging and they are out of your way within a few seconds.
Other Thoughts: I play the course almost every day so if you wanna throw a round and learn the real layout of the course just shoot me an email at email@example.com

Kiwanis - Good for Practice
Pros: Kiwanis is a local park that is great for picnics or taking the kids to play. It is probably the most centrally located for those who live East of OKC. It is where I take people who "might be interested in disc golf". The holes are very short, and it only has 9. It's good for practice or getting kids involved in playing disc golf. A couple of holes are actually challenging, but it is where I practice at the beginning of the year to see how new discs will perform. I often take my 10 year old boy there, because this course is his speed.
Cons: No concrete tee pads, no signs, hard to find tee boxes (marked by bricks in the ground). All of the "baskets" are homemade at best (for some reason the word "janky" comes to mind). They are horrible. Other people playing or running in the park can get in the way. No basket at all for #5, just a pole in the ground (UPDATE: They did put up a new basket for #5). The soccer goal, the volleyball court, a pavilion, picnic tables, and small kid playground are dangerously close to flight paths of discs enroute to pin locations.
Other Thoughts: This is a great place to "make up your own hole" (safari). We play from one diagonal of the park to the other as a par 5 (about 800 feet). It is really only good for practice or taking a kid for a short round. I also recommend the snow cone shack in the parking lot after a couple of rounds. UPDATE: Believe it or not, every hole is marked by bricks in the ground. If in the area and want to play a round, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can show you where all of the tee boxes are.
