A fun course, but kinda rough during the warmer months

Pros: Many open, straight tee shots for beginners to work on their proper throwing form.

Some holes with differing elevation.

There is a good variety of shots present on this course.

Most holes are clearly marked and hole markers are pretty accurate.
Cons: The rough can get VERY rough during the summer months. Like, knee-high and very dense. Watch out for bugs and especially, snakes.

The most difficult course to navigate (that I've played) in DFW.

Mosquitoes, snakes, poison oak/ivy, some water (for beginners), and holes 4-9 have little/no tree coverage. Play earlier, rather than later to avoid burning up during the summer.
Other Thoughts: A great course for players of all skill levels. Pros won't find much difficulty in this course, but everyone else will have a great time (given the conditions are reasonable).

Really chill locals.

Side note: be careful in the parking lot. I got a screw through my tire the first time I played here.

Pros: I played this course a lot while I was a student at UNT, about 5 years ago and loved it. Most of the holes are wide open and you can really let loose and rip it! I played it again in January 2015 and like that they have added more tee boxes. The wind also adds a nice challenge.
Cons: The signage at the course is in desperate need of repair or replacement. This is especially true around the back of the course where you have to try and navigate your way through the half mile hike around the tennis courts and driving range. We only found about 4 signs that were still standing and readable.

Pros: I love this course. Tons of long holes let your grip and rip and some nice wooded holes in the back 9 keep your arm from falling off. Since adding the new tee boxes this course has been awesome. Gives you 2 different ways to play each hole now which is refreshing. Best and only course in Denton. Nice and long gives you a great walk around all 18. Watch out for that lake.. eats most of my discs.
Cons: Wind can eat you up on this open course.
Other Thoughts: Friends and I play each long box as par 3. Best round -3 with average round being around +7. Played like god one morning after a long night of lucy to achieve that -3. Ill never forget that round.

Pros: This is my local course now that I have moved to denton.

I like this course cause the front 9 and back 9 are very different. Front 9 plays towards people big arms and not many hazards and back 9 is a little more accuracy based with a few hazards. Most people play the classic tees, which is the pads with the signs buy it. which gives you the best combination of long and short holes.

Every hole has a long and short tee

A few holes are aceable #8 seems to be the one most people run at.

The people are always friendly and will help you out as much as possible.

They have weekly tournaments, every sunday for 5 bucks

There are couple very good locals that have given me many good tips to improve my game.
Cons: The Course is one of the longest in the DFW area for sure. The holes are very spread out they could very easily stick another 9 holes in and around the original holes.

in the summer be ready to sweat very little shade on front 11 and almost no benches to sit down.

weather makes a big difference, usually there is a decent wind from the south. every once in awhile there will be a north wind or no wind at all ( this is usually when you can get a really good score)

signs are beat up or non existent

some of the difference between the long n short pad isn't much (example #16)

Water on #9 I see a lot of people throw their disc in the water from the long tee pad. It is however very shollow water and you can usually find your disc pretty easy.

Watch out for snakes!!!

Grass on hills can get really long between mows, very easy to lose disc.
Other Thoughts: Most people play as a 54 for par. I would say most people I play with shoot a +7 or higher.

Pros: Very beginner friendly. The course is open with very few obstacles, especially on the front nine.
Multiple concrete tees for each hole
Locals are friendly
Cons: Getting from the back none to the front nine s a bit of walk.
No signs at several of the tees
No course map
Other Thoughts: If it wasn't for the local disc golfer that I played with I would have had no idea where to go. It was a very fun course though, many birdie even for a new guy like me.

 The great wide open in Denton

Pros: - Concrete tee pads, with multiple tees per hole
- Course makes use of elevation changes presented by levies around the "lake" (#7 in particular makes use of this, throwing from the top of one across a large field to another)
- Plenty of opportunities to air out some throws
Cons: - Course is is fairly open with very few obstacles, particularly over most of the front eleven holes. Being fairly open, there is little cover from wind, or the Texas sun in summer time
- While navigation/flow is generally not too bad (a better map would be helpful), the walk from #11 to #12 is substantial, about a quarter mile. From #11, walk past the basket, veering laft past the tennis courts to the sidewalk at the street. Follow this past the driving range and batting cages to get to #12.
- Signage ranges from faded to nonexistent as of my writing this
- Difficult to recover discs from murky(nasty) water, both the lake near 6 and especially 9(highest risk for RHBH), and the creek near the last few holes. The lake is marked off-limits by the way
- A few places tend to get pretty muddy at times
- The grasses off the fairways can be very high in the spring and summer between mows
Other Thoughts: Ready for a hike? This is a pretty lengthy course...flat, mostly, except for the handful of trips up and down the levies on holes #4 through #9, plus the long walk from #11 to #12. There are many holes here that are little more than straight shots across a field where the greatest obstacle is the wind. It is not the most exciting course as far as layout or technical variety, but the chance to really air out your drivers, I think, nudges my rating up on this course, and I believe making it worth checking out if in the area.

Pros: this is a decent course. there are 2 sets of tee pads and when played from the longs you can really bomb it out there. there are several elevation changes which make use of the levees and these are the best holes. the park is for the most part clean. the locals are very nice and dont mind showing you around. the rough is essentially non existent so you shouldnt lose any discs unless they havent mowded. water comes into play on a few holes, but isnt really that big of an issue unless youre dumb and throw your meathooks on number 9. the creek is usually shallow and discs should be easy enough to find. the course flows pretty well and uses the available land well.
Cons: really wide open. the front 12 holes are all out in open fields with little to no obsticals in the way. i prefer a mix of open and wooded holes and thats not the case here. there is a looooong walk from hole 12 to 13. the first few times i played i had no clue where to go, signage would help greatly. playing during the summer is brutal since there isnt much shade, bring lots of water. denton can get quite windy and with the lack of trees its can be tricky. the back 6 holes are decent but seem like filler.
Other Thoughts: decent at best but denton is a great place to visit. its a college town and most bars around have a great selection of craft beer. oak street draft house and lucky lous are both great place to wind down after your round.

 Sentimental for a good reason

Pros: - Variety of long arm holes and finesse holes.
- Utilizes the levee and pond on a number of holes in a clever and challenging manner.
- The crowd favorite Hole 7, where you bomb one from the top of a 25 ft levee over the "valley" onto a 10 ft levee.
Cons: - After front 9, it gets a little confusing where to go. Just go around the front of the driving range and batting cages along the road to pickup where you left off.
- Bring at least 1-2 spare throwaway discs. The pond in the middle would be the obvious culprit but actually the creek on the back 9 is a disc-thief.
Other Thoughts: This is where I started playing Disc golf in college while at North Texas, so of course it has a sentimental/nostalgia element for me. It almost seems like they designed the front 9 and back 9 with two different schools of thought, and I appreciate both (Front 9 grip and rip in the open terrain wind, back 9 technical prowess in and amongst the trees).

Pros: -New concrete tee pads make for more consistent play across varying conditions of wetness.
-Addition of long tees on a number of the previously easier holes makes it more challenging than it used to be.
-The final 6 holes are great. They are wooded, shaded, and more finess than the first 12.
-The front 9 is great for beginners.
-The pin on hole 4 is on top of a hill, adding a little extra challenge.
-The tee for hole 5 plays from the top of a hill and is a great opportunity to bomb one for beginners.
-Hole 6 is pretty straight forward but is a nice long tunnel shot.
-Much better maintained than in past years.
Cons: -The front 12 are very open. While this can be fun for beginners, they are a little too easy for more advanced players. More importantly, they get bloody hot during the summer.
-Still gets muddy at spots during rainy season.
-Can get very windy.
-During the summer, the creek that comes into play on the last 4 holes gets very stagnant and flat out gross. Personally, I would rather pay a few bucks to buy my disc back from Second Hand Sports than take my shoes in there.
-Did I mention it gets hot in the summer?
Other Thoughts: This is my home course, so I have played it for years out of necessity. It's now a pleasure to play. While not as challenging as Lake Lewisville, I find it equally enjoyable. It's one of the best courses within 30 miles of Denton. If you're looking for something advanced with tons of technical shots, this isn't the course, though.

Pros: The newish multiple concrete tees on each hole make this course a delight to play. This bad boy had elevated tees, dog legs, ace runs and even an island basket. Good for newbs like me and experienced players
Cons: The big flaw I found with the course was the distance between 11 & 12. Have a cab ready, because you'll need it.
Other Thoughts: Directions to 12 - After finishing 11, turn left towards the driving range. I'd recommend walking around the range, but the choice is yours. Once you're past the range, you'll see the batting cages. The tee is opposite side of the cages.
