Good Practice Course
Pros: Good for beginners
Hard to lose a disk
Cons: Too close to pedestrians on bike / walking trail
Other Thoughts: Good place to practice since it is so close to my house and very easy. Virtually impossible to lose a disk here like most of the courses I play
Good for a beginners or a relaxing round

Pros: -Plenty of OB to increase the challenge, but still no threat of losing a disc
-Next tee box signs make navigation easy
-Great for beginners and low power intermediate players
Cons: -Short tee boxes
-Not very challenging
Other Thoughts: Difficulty (2/5): Not an overly long or technical course. Definitely geared more towards beginner players. There are very few holes that are completely wide open, but the course isn't heavily wooded by a long stretch. Lots of out of bounds created by walking paths and the concrete drain. This serves to add a challenge to the course without a risk of losing discs, which is really nice.
Maintenance (2.5/5): Every hole has a concrete tee box, but they were often very short. If you use any sort of a cross step on your run up, you'll need to start from behind the tee box. There weren't much in the way of tee signs, but there was next tee box signs next to the baskets, which really helped. Grass seems to be mowed regularly and the baskets were in decent shape.
Variability (2/5): There was always trees on each hole, but they were generally sparse and spread out. This meant you could usually use whatever line you were most comfortable with and shape it around the trees. I, for one, was able to throw a hyzer on just about every single hole. My playing partner really likes anhyzers, and was able to throw those just about every hole. The one really unique hole is the short par 4 island hole. It makes you decide whether to lay up for a very easy birdie, or go for a risky eagle.
Flow/Experience (3.5/5): The flow of this course is phenomenal. The holes lead right into each other, and the next tee box signs make navigation for first time players very easy. It's a multi use park, so we frequently had to wait for joggers/walker to pass out of our driving range on the nearby paths. It's in a pretty park, and was a very enjoyable round.

Pros: Well maintained
Nice, clean park
Great for beginners
Easy to navigate
Cons: Lots of pedestrians
Extremely simple course. Every hole is so wide open that it quickly got boring.
No cons other than that. It is as nice as it could possibly be for the design, but the design is a simple, easy, open course.

- Well maintained
- Lots of trash cans and easy parking
Cons: - Very basic course
- Busy park with lots of people walking through fairways

Other Thoughts: Good effort at a neighborhood course. Definitely has the beginner/rec player in mind. Advance and above should look at some the other area courses.

Decent course in city park
Pros: - Very nice teepads, no complaints about them being too short.
- Course is in a well-kept city park in a nice neighborhood. Grass is mowed
- Fairly easy to navigate as a first-timer; course generally has good flow from hole to hole, and most of the baskets have signage nearby pointing to the next tee
- A few interesting shots taking into account the (dry today) drainage ditch that runs through the park: #5 plays as an island hole surrounded by the ditch, #7 pin sits a few feet in front of the ditch adding a bit of risk.
Cons: - The course plays on either side of a walking/jogging/biking path (marked as OB) which was in use constantly while I was there. Beware the pedestrians/bicyclers.
- A few signs are missing or damaged; some do have some questionable distances listed. The course map on this site seems to have pretty accurate distances listed.
- The course is pretty level elevation-wise.
- There are trees around most of the course, but nothing that would give a technical feel or provide much in the way of challenging lines. #14-18 in particular are fairly wide open.
- All but two holes are under 400ft in length, and half are under 300ft. Big arms won't get much use out here, which would be a "con" for some.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't call this either a technical course or a place to really air out some throws, but it definitely would be a good place for a beginner, or anyone just looking for relatively quick round. It seems like this course be a decent warm-up for Lake Lewisville DCG. This is a course that would be difficult to hate or to really love.

Pros: Nice use of available land. Pretty neat layout in the middle of a neighborhood. Lots of straight shots. Pretty much bombing or buzzing. Lots more challenging and fun with tourney obs. Hole 5 is more fun as an island hole. Store right around the corner. Restrooms
Cons: Just an average course. Definitely played worse. Flat. No elevation change.
Other Thoughts: Nice combo with lake park. Not really busy.

The coarse comes with training wheels
Pros: Easy course with a good lay out. Nice and open with almost zero chance of losing a disc. I often use this course to work on my technique or to break in new discs
Cons: This will bore the veteran/pro player. If seen multiple -10 scores registered. The park can become congested at times with youth sports practices and general park goers. Always Remember - obliviates have the right of way
Other Thoughts: If you're a beginner, get to this course.

Great for newbs
Pros: This is a great course to introduce new players to disc golf. There are a few trees on each hole, enough to make things tricky, but not too annoying. The average length of the holes slowly builds up from the beginning to the end. The back 9 is great for practicing your drives. Pretty much no chance to lose a disc.
Cons: Not much variety. The last several holes are just long and open. Very flat and repetitive.
Other Thoughts: Probably won't go back here on my own, but perhaps with someone who wants to learn.

L.L. Woods Rundown!!!
Pros: -Concrete Pads
-Well manicured and very, very clean
-Nice surrounding neighborhood
-Shot Variety (80%mids and 20%drivers from box, anis, hyzers, and str8 line shots)
-Water fountain at hole 10 or something was cool to see (refill station if you will)
Cons: -Lots of park traffic
-Pretty bland course...not much terrain variety
-Mostly short holes.
Other Thoughts: Really decent course. Fun to play and great for beginners. Not much to it, but it does offer everything you might want in a small course -- spotty trees, water hazard (if played as so), slight elevation changes mostly found around baskets, mostly short drives with last few holes being of decent size. Good use of the space given.
Great midrange practice course with not-so-long fairways and spotty trees. Also would make a great course for glow games. You wont be losing discs out here.
Easy course to find your way around and it also has a nice flow to it. If you're in the area I'd say it's worth stopping by.

Cons: No really challenging holes. Sometimes the park gets crowded by non-disc golf players.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course to play to get some quick practice worked in.
