Pros: This course has great pin locations at just about every hole. Has a wide range of shots that you have to bring with, and a good round can turn ugly pretty quick. Hole 9 is still one of my favorite holes in the metroplex, shooting off the top of the cliff. I really enjoy the way that the course goes from mostly open on the front 9 to heavily wooded and very technical on the back 9
Cons: Typical Zboaze garbage. We played our round at 11:30 am and when we showed up nobody was there......by the time we reached #10 we had already let 10 beginner groups play thru. The mob golfing is ridiculous at this course and if you dont get there before 10am you better factor in waiting at every hole. And come on people, HOW HARD IS IT TO PICK UP YOUR OWN TRASH? This course could be amazing but its so filthy its not even worth playing
Other Thoughts: The only time I will ever be playing zboaze again will be if I get a round in early in the morning. Other than that, there are other nice courses around that I would much rather play. Crowley beats this course hands down.....every day of the week

Great course needs help
Pros: Front Nine have good long distance pins.
Back Nine have more variety of shots.
Great use of Long vs. Short throughout the course.
Great course to play in the early early morning when summer is in full swing.
Cons: Trash and Graffiti throughout the course.
Parking lot is overflowing on any nice day.
The Mob golf is the worst I've seen, ever.
When it does rain, it's a mud pit on several holes.
Tee pad signage are mostly destroyed.
Baskets are slowly being stolen.
Other Thoughts: This course has exploded in the last few years. Tonnes of people every weekend and vacation day, far worse than Bearcreek in terms of volume of players, make my wife and I not play this course hardly at all anymore. Shame too because the back nine of this course offer so much variety.
I could see the quality of the course easily increasing if it was sponsored by a local club or group of golfers willing to help with the upkeep.

Love it here!
Pros: Great design
Challenging for both handedness
very good use of the land. Elevation and creek is utilized to it's fullest potential
Cons: Trash trash everywhere
Other Thoughts: If only we could get some people tp pick it all up, maybe in exchange for community service hours.?.

Pros: Great variety of shots to use
Nice effort by locals to provide benches at most holes.
Difficult but fair for beginner to intermediate skill levels
Cons: Where to start????
Poor drainage after rain or snow (especially holes 1 and 2)
Tiny parking lot
Very crowded on weekends (too many hackers and mob golfers)
Other Thoughts: I've played this course twice now. After the first time, I had it ranked #2. What a freefall after my second round here. Probably the single most reason for my dissapointmemt is the overwhelming number of mob golfers, What up guys? Please break off into groups of 4 or add a fifth wheel if absolutely necessary. It really is a joke to do that on such a crowded course. The Great Z-Boaz, PDGA sanctioned tourneys and all..... Sorry, I'll play Bicentennial over in Crowley before I'll wait and wait and wait to tee off at this course again.

Pros: Very well maintained BY disc golfers, great variety of shots from long to shorter(more precise) shots. Doglegs left and right, and throwing over the creek with a lot of trees also provides a nice challenge. Also throwing off an elevated plane on several holes was a favorite of mine.
Cons: Sometimes can get a bit crowded when you go at the wrong time
Other Thoughts: Certainly worth checking out, as I do everytime Im in the area.

Pros: Nice forested park that has few holes running by a road. Will provide any one a challange that is looking for one. The community has done a lot by provided seats at every hole for resting and a nice wood monument on hole 15
Cons: The only con to this course is that theres no map views to guide people.
Other Thoughts: Its pretty much my home away from home

Pros: -Concrete T-pads
-Now has great signage
-Most holes have about 2 / 3 different pin positions, which they are starting to move around more frequently. (BRAND NEW pin positions on holes 3, 4, 14, 18 )
-Numerous holes have more than one t-pad, some three.
-Signs for each hole are in the works.
-Easily started at front 9 or back 9
-Shot variety (bring all your shots, cause you'll need em on this course)
-Terrain variety (treed holes, uphill, downhill, wide open, dog-legs left and right, water... it's got it all)
-Very easy to find being right of I-20 and Winscott
Cons: -If it's been raining within the week prior, be prepared for muddy/slick t-pads, maybe a few washed out holes. (they're workin on it)
-Does get quite populated when the weather is nice. (bring a hack or something to pass the 5-10 min wait per hole)
-Newbie course, meaning a lot of 1 disc throwers congregate there.
-Does get quite trashy (pick up your fricken trash people and quit spray painting everything)
Other Thoughts: Front 9 -- few treed holes, mostly open shots with elevation changes, some "big-arm" holes
Back 9 -- few open holes, mostly very treed holes, creek runs through this half of the course, low ceiling shots, tunnel shots, any's and hyzers (great practice for your finesse game)
Best time to play would be during the week days before 3:00 p.m. or earlier than 12:00 noon on the weekends. Cold or windy weather de-populates the course as well.
If you haven't played it, you should. Pros out way the cons for the most part. My home course... and it's a good one.

A True Challenge
Pros: Elevation Changes
Cons: Lot's of Teenagers Have Taken Over
Other Thoughts: This was the best course in town for a long time, and is still one of my favorites, but the crowds have made this course one to avoid on most beautiful weekends. Best time to play is during extreme weather conditions. Better than waiting for a dozen teens to throw their one disc.

Pros: Good course with just about every single shot that you can think of. You get to try out your technical game in the woods where you better hit your lines or you can get in trouble quickly. Then you go out in the open and really get to let loose. The elevation is used well here which is always a plus near D/FW. Ths course doesnt favor one type a player except the consistant one. There are extra tees that keeps the course from getting boring and opens up many different shots. The baskets are in good shape as well. This is not a regular par 54 course to where you just throw with no regard of where your disc lands, there are many placement holes where you must think about your shot and then execute it and sometimes execute it just to have a good next shot. This course will test your mental game along with your phyical conditioning.
Cons: Can get hot and it is a long walk. No signs can be a pain in the butt sometimes. Navigation can get hard but if you take your time to look around you should be good to go. This course can get crowded quickly. There is lots of trash scattered round as well.
Other Thoughts: This course along with many other courses in the area make fo a great road trip and a change to other courses in the area. Bring lot of drinks because it can get very hot and rounds can get long due to traffic. Enjoy this great course and have fun playing one of the best!

Love at First Drive
Pros: Beautiful terrain, with several elevation shots....a BIG plus in dfw....This has got to be one of the most proffesional looking courses i have played to date with A TON OF VARIETY...several wooded, open, uphill, and downhill holes...creek comes into play on 3 holes.... a lot of holes you definitely have to commit to a line and hit it, the good thing is many holes have a couple lines you can choose from which can really make a round fun and interesting...Best advice is shoot for the fairway, take your threes and keep on walking....theres a couple birdie holes but you have to pick your battles, this is def not a pitch and putt course, some of these holes par 3 seems impossible :) ....
Z-Boaz has Plenty of open holes to just let it rip, mixed with plenty of technical holes that are long and short...and another good thing is LOTS OF BENCHES!! always a plus....several trash cans too, they just dont seem to get used very much :(
Cons: NO SIGNS!! i noticed a couple of marble slabs next to the first couple tee pads....other than that, nothing.....if its your first time you def need someone to show you around!! Lots of trash, a lot bagged, but a lot on the ground as well....but thats def a sign that this place is used a lot.... oh and btw i didnt see any restrooms either..
only reason its not a 5 is bc lack of signs and lots of trash, if trash was picked up and they put some signs up this would without a doubt be an easy 5
Other Thoughts: Lots of People here...zboaz is probably one of the most popular courses in the dfw area...and for a good cause....i will highly recommend this course to everyone....
Bring your "A" game bc your gonna need it....has plenty of holes that you can par one round and easily take a 5+ the next....if it seems like its not all that hard, play from the longs with all par 3's, shoot a 54 and you'll feel like youve won the lottery...
another note- this ones def not the place to bring a newbie to try and learn the sport....it can be pretty hard/frustrating at times, even for the best of players
