Pros: Long distances allow for more difficult holes. A varied terrain of long open fields and tight wooded holes. Most difficult course I've played.
Cons: Ants, Poison Ivy, bad navigation. Wear tall socks and bring a map.

Cons: Hard to navigate. Need a map or guide to help find holes and tees if you are new to this course.
Other Thoughts: My friends and I traveled from Louisiana to play the courses in Tyler and we came to this course and could not find any of the front 9 holes or tees. We also couldnt find a map anywhere nor other players to guide us. If you are traveling and are not familiar with this course I recommend playing the other great courses Tyler has to offer.

 Play Nice With The Hungry Angry Trees!

Pros: This is another great course at Lindsey Park. This course has elevation, wooded, wide-open, variable lengths, tunnel shots, great pin placements, and lots of good tree use. I loved that the wooded holes happen a couple of different times during the round instead of being bunched together like most courses. In the heat, it is nice to duck into the woods. The course has some elevation in couple of spots, but the latter few holes are the best of these. The protected pins here are great. One pin is guarded by a hungry and angry tree. But if you beat the branches enough, it just might give you your disc back. ;) I love the hole lengths here. Some long bombs, some ace runs, and everything in between. You have to love the fact that this also keeps things fresh and non-repetitive. The concrete tee and baskets are in a good shape here. This is a big course and they know it. There are bathrooms at the main parking area and one by hole 15 or 16 (I think). There were trashcans along the way also.
Cons: Navigation is messy, so take the map or get a guide. For first time players or people who travel to play courses, this is a huge negative. The tee signs are of the tombstone style with only hole number and footage on them. They are cool looking and I am sure a Lindsey Park aesthetic, but a hole layout or next tee marker would be very useful. There are poisonous plants in the woods, so be careful. That is all I could think of.
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor her was really good. I loved the course and thought it was really fun. The variety of hole styles and lengths made me actually wish it did not end at 18 holes even though I know many people find this course really long. I will most certainly come play here again and this town is worth of a road trip.

Pros: Bring your long arm. This course has lost more length than the red course across the park. this course will stretch your game.
Cons: This course will frustrate new players, there are quite a few "tunnel" holes where shots get very tough
Other Thoughts: I enjoy playing this course, but it always hurts my self esteem a little. It's fun, but it's tough.

Pros: Best of the 2 in the park. Lots more shots then the red course, which challenges you more. The elevation is very cool here(15/16). The are some wooded holes that are tight with a good mix of boomers as well. Not to difficult which I think makes it fun for the newbie. (Red tees at least) Fun course which rewards you for good shots and gets you if you dont. Good baskets and tees. Clean once again and well taken care of excpet for a couple of holes noted in the cons.
Cons: Signage seems to be a big deal down here. Hard to navigate just like the red course. Holes 10 and 11 could use some manicuring as the poison ivy and underbrush has gotten almost out of control.
Other Thoughts: Great having 36 holes in one park. Will go back for sure.

 Very challenging to play and navigate

Pros: Tight wooded holes, hole 7 especially. Elevation used to maximum in my opinion. I liked 16 so I threw a few just to watch them fly. Extra long tee pads. Good variety of shots are required. After hole 5, I met a local that said he helped design the courses. He whipped out a piece of paper and drew me a map of both courses from memory so I should mention friendly locals and plenty of them. If you are having problems navigating just let the group or guy play through and follow the locals. Thats what I did on the red course.
Cons: At times hard to navigate. For the most part a confusing course to play though fun once you do.
Other Thoughts: The first local I talked to said there is going to be a 3rd course here soon. Hopefully it will have elevation and will be densely wooded. Overall Lindsey Park definitely is a very good golf destination. With 3 18 hole courses in the same park that both have a great variety of shots, you will definitely have fun throwing every shot that you know.

 fair course

Pros: This course has much to offer: long open holes, short narrow fairways and difficult wooded areas. Fair mix of straight, left and right shots. There is one super long hole, something like 900 feet I believe that is tricky. Tee off on a long downhill and navigate around some trees. I really love the middle section of this course as it is heavily wooded with super tight fairways. More elevation changes then the Red course. Nice teepads. Signs are a little worn but do there job.
Cons: A big thing that I look for in a course is the flow and navigation. This had niether. Poor signage and a strange flow to it. A course should be designed so the first time thrower on the course won't have any problems. I got lost and had to walk several fairways just to know where to throw. I hate when they mix basket types, new and old on the same course, kind of tacky.
Other Thoughts: Once you know where to go and throw, not too bad of a course. I will definately play it several more times. Holes 10 and 11 are heavily wooded and have thick underbrush. Posion ivy abounds and a little creek runs through it. Can easily lose a disc in this area so watch your plastic closely. This is the less busy of the now three courses on the site. Definately a higher degree of difficulty on this one. Having three courses in one place is incredible!

Pros: This place has something for every kind of thrower,Course lies mostly atop a large mound of sand with grass mixed.Great use of the parks natural beauty utilizing the hilly pine tree areas forcing players to try very tight somewhat intricate lay-ups to allow for par,mostly long holes not too many right out in front of you.In north Texas this course sits atop my number one spot.
Cons: A long way to walk for an 18 hole course but who's complaining with such quality in most holes.Why beautiful courses like this don't have seating areas is beyond me.
Other Thoughts: This is the harder more elevated course,partial to long lightly wooded to open elevation changing shots myself this course has 4 or five of those.

Pros: This was a very fun and very challenging course. There are concrete tee pads on all holes and they provide the opportunity to choose between a short or a long, which I love. The long tees seemed to add quite a bit more length and challenge on the holes. Hole 2 is REALLY fun for a big arm thrower. It is a long downhill shot with trees all the way down. There are a lot of windows to hit giving you a lot of options for what to drive with. My first time to play, I think I easily unloaded half my bag and then gathered them up to throw again...it was that fun. The rest of the course has a lot of holes that are through sparsely wooded fariways and then several holes that are very densely wooded technical shots. There are also a few holes that offer decent elevation change. The baskets are good and the course was in great shape. I really enjoyed playing here and will look forward to the next time I'm in Tyler to play again.
Cons: This course was very difficult to navigate on my own. I spent a lot of time walking up the fairway to find the basket and then walking back to tee. It was very tiring. I did not have a map and I can't say if you can find them or not, but you would definitely fair better with one. Grab someone that knows the course to help you navigate. There was one spot in particular (I think it was between holes 5 and 6) that I spent about 20 minutes trying to find the next tee box. The sign after hole 5 pointed me entirely in the wrong direction. It wasn't until I saw the one other person playing the course that he was able to point out where to go. He then helped me navigate the holes back in the dense part of the trees, otherwise I'm sure I would have had trouble finding my way around on those.
Other Thoughts: When I played this course there was only one other player on the Blue course. There were a lot more people playing the Red course which is right next door. I guess that the Red is a little bit easier...but not too much easier for me. There are two courses right next to each other that are high level, high quality courses. It doesn't get much better than that. I hear also that there are a couple of other courses in Tyler that are pretty good.
