Pros: Located in a nice city park. This park has a lot of trees in it, old growth trees. A lot more trees and nicer trees than you would imagine being in Wichita Falls. This is probably the biggest feature of this park, it has much better trees than anything else in the area. The trees help cut down on the wind, so that's a major asset. The holes tend to be shorter for the most part, with a few longer ones thrown in.
Cons: The tees are marked with short markers on the ground, so it's difficult to spot them from a distance. Since this course winds around into itself, you really need the map to locate the next tee. It's often not intuitive on where to go.
A lot of the holes close off RHBH lines, but leave a lot of RHFH lines open, so a righty with a strong flick can really attack many of the holes.
The park can get pretty busy from non disc golfers.

Bird is a word
Pros: -Wind affects your game less than any other WF area courses.
-Easiest course in WF area (playing all par 3's)
-Lots of shorter holes for ace chances and birdies
Cons: -Sometimes isn't mowed at sports field height
-Tee posts are at the end of the Tees
-While the Tee boxes are concrete, they aren't raised and can sometimes have dirt on them making them slick
Other Thoughts: One of my favorite courses in town.

Short, but lots of different shots.
Pros: Mostly reachable holes with a good mix of left, right and straight shots required.
Cons: This course really needs better signage.
Other Thoughts: Pretty easy course for beginners with 0 risk of losing a disc. No water or heavily forested areas.

Great Golf, Needs Signs
Pros: Good Concrete Tees
Next Tee arrows on most baskets (some were pointed a little off)
Some Teesigns (distance in yards)
Plenty of Benches/rocks
Plenty of Trashcans
Very Clean and well kept
Plenty of parking
Bathrooms and water fountain
Pavilion and gathering area for Tourneys
Love the layout for the most part
Some forced lines/options
Makes you throw several different shots
Works your accuracy
Even the "repetetive" holes all had those little differences that matter
Something for everyone
Great for beginners
Int and adv can work on their placement and Midranges
A few places to air it out
Great place to take Family/Noobies to
Playground and picnic area for the family
Walking path or volleyball for the Non-DG'ers
Favorite Hole(s): #3, #18
Cons: Very Few Tees had anything except hole #
Needs directionals and a map badly
What Teesigns there were had distance in Yards (some were way off)
#2 and #15 had dirt tees with very little marking (2's basket was moved making the existing pad irrelevant)
Several holes (8-10 I think) were kind of repetetive
Walking path could cause safety issues if the place was busy
A few of the baskets need the numbers "refreshed"
Other Thoughts: Overall this course is a very fun round. Definitely a good stop if you're in the area. If I lived in the area I would be here often. Worth traveling a little way to play. Not a destination course by any stretch.
The play is very good and is worth the hassle of looking for tees (IMO).
I will definitely play here again when I come through. The fun factor on this course overcomes the lack of good signage enough for me to rate it 3.5.
PM me and let me know how I can make my reviews "more helpful."

So close, yet so far away
Pros: This is a very nice, old city park in Wichita Falls. Play winds around through old growth trees, picnic areas, and a nice walkway. The overall experience was very pleasant.
I really appreciated the layout, as it incorporated long and short, left, right, and straight shots very well. No two holes felt the same to me.
The pads and baskets were in good shape, though obviously well worn and aging. There was plenty of parking and I think there were restrooms (didn't have to check).
Not overly crowded (on labor day), but enough people to ask for help if needed, which leads to my main con...
Cons: ...Signage! Please, for the love of Pete, improve the signage! Okay, so I get frustrated when I spend more time hunting baskets and pads than throwing plastic (or rubber). Maybe I'm weird. But, several times I spent 5-10 minutes trying to figure out if this pad goes to that basket. Most of the pads were marked and most of the baskets were marked, but they didn't necessarily coincide. Thankfully there were several friendly people that helped me on my journey.
Really, other than signs, I have no major complaints. Just the typical shortcomings of a city park that hamper the designer in their efforts. Space constraints and working around the other park activities did cause some awkward transitions, but nothing major.
Other Thoughts: I thoroughly enjoyed this course and hope to return. I really enjoyed pretty much every hole and was impressed with the maintenance of the course. I highly recommend playing here if you can.
My biggest suggestion is to find a local if you're traveling through. If you're a local, please organize a group to put up some signs. Thanks!

Nice, shady, int-beginner course
Pros: Pretty course
Flat, easy to walk,
With good shot placement, should be birdie-heaven.
Short holes are nice for those who haven't perfected long drive yet.
Most baskets have arrows pointing to the next tee-pad
Cons: Short shots aren't going to challenge those with long drives.
park is obviously used quite a bit, during busy times, non-DGers could become hazards.
Course flows well, but many baskets are unmarked and only a few yards from other baskets making it a guessing game ot figure out which basket you're throwing for.
Other Thoughts: Hole 1 doesn't have arrow pointing to 2nd tee-pad. (It's back and too the right if you're facing the basket for 1)
Distances, if present, are marked in yards.
Hole 10 basket is marked as 16.

Great Beginner/Rec Course
Pros: Great course for beginners and recreational players. Park is kept up very well and usually very little trash on the course. Course is easy to navigate. Has the option for multiple pin placements but has not been changed in quite some time.
Cons: Tee pads on 6 and 11 have been worn down and are slick. No significant challenge for Intermediate or better players. Only long hole is 13 but it is wide open. Not wooded enough to be called "technical".
Other Thoughts: This is the course I learned to play and still love playing a round here.

Pros: Quick, easy play. Many birdie opportunities. Good park to learn to play.
Cons: Not too challenging for a skilled player. Skilled player should shoot under par consistently. Tee boxes have become quite slick/slippery with wear over time. Be particularly careful on 6 and 11.
