Pros: -- There is a map, but it is badly faded.
-- Tee signs have hole number, par and distance, although distances on some appear to be off.
-- Nice use of slight elevation in the park.
-- Nice use of the trees in the park
-- Decent flow, easy to follow; baskets have number on the post, below the catching basket.
-- Long (12 feet?) concrete tee pads.
Cons: -- No parking lot. Park on Center Drive. No. 1 tee is near the pavilion.
-- No restrooms.
-- Safety concerns: No. 4 basket is really close to No. 5 tee; 7 basket is basically in the 8 fairway; anyone in the 9 fairway is in danger of getting hit by a drive on 8.
-- With only three course in a city of about 350,000, expect it to be crowded. I played at 9 a.m. on a Sunday, and there was a group on just about every tee.
Other Thoughts: -- With four holes in the 240-250 range and no holes as long as 350 feet, players with reasonable arms will have a birdie chance on every hole.
-- A previous review mentioned two tee pads (left and right of the sign). Those exist for the first few holes and then seem to disappear.
-- Hole information on this site lists two tee pads (red, shorter; white, longer), but I saw no evidence of the shorter tee pads.
-- This is a fairly typical city park course. It is a little bit squeezed into the space, however. That creates some of the safety concerns.
-- No benches at tee pads, but there are benches along in the park.

Pros: Posts mark the holes
Nice use of slight elevation in the park
Nice use of the trees in the park
decent flow, easy to follow the layout
Cons: Most of the posts only have the hole number.
The 2 tees listed are left or right side of the one poll.
Dirt Tee pads are pretty worn, this course get a lot of play
Other Thoughts: I happened to show up right before the local mini at this course. I can see why they play it compared to the other courses around town. While not a pitch and putt course, There are several different shots in the 9 holes.

However the park is small and is used by non disc golfers. I almost hit a dog on hole 6 that I did not see until after I let my drive go.

Would I play here again?

Yes I think I would. It is not that bad of a course. The idea that the left or right side of the post are two different looks at a hole is a joke, but that does not change the fact that the holes were fun to throw.

Pros: I brought a friend who'd never played to this course and we found it to be a great beginner/quick course. For a small park in a neighborhood, this course has a great use of space and a mix of wide open and low tech shots. Though there's a lack of shade the course has a few built-in benches with covers that make for good spots to stop and get some water after playing in the Texas heat. Plenty of trash cans too.
Cons: Layout can get confusing, but to combat that I took a picture of the map on my phone and we consulted it as needed. Some of the ground could use filler, lots of erosion.
Other Thoughts: I found Lamar Park to be a great for beginners or a place to get in some quick practice throws. Originally I'd gone to West Guth earlier in the day and it hadn't been maintained in quite awhile - lots of overgrowth, zero mowing or landscaping - completely unplayable. Lamar Park saved us for the day and gave us a good 45 minutes of fun.

 Great start

Played: 4  Reviewed: 3
Pros: Wide open course. A beginner can easily learn how to play and experienced patron super friendly. Play ground inside course for kids to play while adults are banging chains.
Cons: Limited to 9 holes. Tee box dirt and uneven. No restrooms. Park would benefit from restroom facilities.
Other Thoughts: Great course to take kids and teach them the game.

 Quick and easy

Cons: dirt tee boxes, poorly marked tee boxes and holes
Other Thoughts: course is great for beginners or if you want to play a quick round, there isn't much too it but its a quite and relaxing place to play

Pros: Great place for a beginner. The wind and few strategic trees add some difficulty. Course map with short boxes, double chained by a guy in a kilt...
Cons: Tee boxes are dirt, , not clearly marked mandos (#3 & #8). short tee boxes not easy to find with out looking at course map.
Other Thoughts: Park redesigned in 2010 to avoid some yards. Blind draw doubles every Tues 6:00 pm, sign up taken at 5:30.

Pros: It is a place to go and throw a disc at some baskets.
Cons: Plenty. This "course" is a mixed-up hodgepodge of baskets and tees. You don't know where to play from or throw to. Better to just pick a basket and do putting practice. After that, go somewhere else and play real disc golf.
Other Thoughts: I think they would have done better just to make this a regular park. Go to West Guth Park. At least it is a legitimate disc golf course. It beats a mishmash as this one is.

Pros: Very open great for beginners, not a lot of trees but challenging for any golfer to work on their game. quick 9 hole course to hit up after work.
Cons: the layout can be confusing, take a map the first time or you will be aiming at the wrong holes.
Other Thoughts: the city has done a good job cleaning the place up and keeping homeless from making it a camping spot.
