Pros: -- Two tees per hole; the second set (blue) are actually marked as holes 10-18, but locals tell me they play them as long tees for the 9-hole course.
-- Decent use of land. Trees are not plentiful but are well used. Four and five are good examples: The fairways are open, but each basket is in a stand of trees, making accuracy important. There is one water carry (8) and another hole (1) where water is in play.
-- Does not favor one throwing style (RHBH, etc.).
-- Navigation is easy except for 7 to 8.
Cons: -- Little or no maintenance. Grass was a minimum of 12 inches high and was waist high in some places. Bugs are bad, and ant hills are everywhere. The deep grass also hides some uneven ground that could cause an injury. Locals told me there are talks with the city that could lead to increased mowing, etc., but for now, course is poorly maintained.
-- Tee pads are a mess. A few are nice, level concrete, but most are uneven, pitted and too small (8 feet long?). Surfaces are not uniform. There is even some artificial turf.
-- Getting from 7 to 8 is an adventure. If you follow the path left from the 7 basket, you are headed in the right direction, but you have to cross a small ditch/creek that has a narrow path. Once you cross, follow the path (waist high grass) a long way to the 8 tee pads on your right.
-- Tees are marked by a red or blue post. Most just have the hole number. Finding the basket isn't very difficult, but distance would be nice.
-- Limited parking, no water and no restroom. No map on site.
Other Thoughts: -- Hole 8 is the best hole, There are no distances at the tee pads, but I would guess the water carry is about 150 feet from the red tee and about 200 from the blue tee.
-- Mandos (4, 9) mentioned by other reviewers are not marked on the course.
-- Course is fairly short. From the red tees, only one hole is longer than 255 feet. The blues add some distance, but generally not a lot.
-- No seating at the tees, but there is a covered pavilion with seating near the pond (8 baskets, 1 tee).
-- From the cul-de-sac on Saint Francis Street, follow the walking path toward the pavilion to get to No. 1. You can park at the end of Saint Peter Street and start at hole 5.
-- Baskets are old and have quite a bit of rust, but they seem to catch OK.

 Good little 9 hole

Pros: two tee's per hole
Decent use of land
Decent flow to the course, semi easy to follow
A couple of memorable holes
Cons: Sandy ruts for tee boxes
A couple of the tee markers can be a little hard to find unless you have a map
Other Thoughts: you don't expect much when you go to play a neighborhood 9 hole course.

This course is not boring by any means, it was actually quite fun to play.

I played the long tee's on every hole.

Hole 1, across the pond, basket area is in the open as long as you clear the trees on the left and right on the shore of the pond.

Hole 2 throws down along the trees with the basket tucked into the trees on the side of a hill.

Hole 3 is your run of the mill open shot

Hole 4 was actually a cool hole to play, the "black" see or pro tee has you throwing down the street/circle with the basket up in the trees. Throw it too high or hyzer out and you are OB.

Hole 5 is a basic open shot with a trees guarding the basket. Even if you hit the tree's, you are probably putting.

Hole 6 is another interesting shot, straight down into the woods with a slight drop off rough behind the basket.

Hole 7 is a mess, you probably need a spotter as the fairways is very narrow and you can't see the landing zone from the tee. Still a good blind shot.

Hole 8 is probably the best signature hole on the course, Throwing over the pond to the basket up in the tree's. This one plays harder than it looks. Specially with a hard left to right wind off the coast.

Hole 9 is your basic tunnel shot though a grove of trees. The Long tee has a double mando.

Would I play here again?

Actually I would, Even though it has some easy holes, it is not really a boring course overall. I would recommend checking it out realizing this course is old and worn out.

Pros: Great little 9 hole course for beginners or weekend golfers.
Great for 18 holes as well, one round on the red tees and another on the blue tees.
Cons: Lots of sticker burrs everywhere, so don't wear sandals.
Other Thoughts: Course map is very accurate if you're using UDisc or the app for this site.
Tee pads are in place for the red tees. Nothing yet for the Blue tees.
Mando on 4 left of the light pole but street behind it is OB, so gotta watch out for that.
Hole 7 is a clear view to the basket now. No more blind throwing over trees.
Double mando on 9 from the blue tee right down the middle of the trees with stripes on them.

Played: 1  Reviewed: 1
Pros: Unique Holes on 1 & 8 over water
Nice Overlook/Bench area over pond
Cons: Tees are NOT at all the holes
No course map at the park
Disc Catcher at Hole 7 is no longer there someone must have stole it
TONS of Stickers that get in your shoe :(
Other Thoughts: The city needs to do major park maintenance not a course that i would travel to. I live fairly close by so came to try something different. I would not recommend this park till the city upgrades and installs a new basket at 7

Pros: I'm local to the area and play this course every few months. I like it. It's fun, enough of a challenge but not incredibly difficult.
Cons: Since I know the course, I forget how tough it might be to find all the tees because they aren't easily seen in some cases. It's probably difficult to find the park the first time too.
Other Thoughts: Not the course to travel for, but if you've played other area courses, are in town for some sort of military function at the base (which is very close), this course could be fun for you.

 Good for putts and fireants

Pros: - Nice tree placement around baskets makes for unique set up
- open fairways for the most part
- noone was there
Cons: - rusted baskets
- no tees
- hard to navigate
- nasty pond
- fire ants n brambels
- "the tree tunnel" was more of a local teen hangout
Other Thoughts: Dissapointed in this being my first 9 hole course. Almost no tees, and the ones that were there are dirt ruts in the ground. It was hard to figure out which basket to aim for on some holes, as well as hard to figure out the next tee location. A map or more play time is needed. I just started makin up my own tees after a while.

I did enjoy some of the basket placements. Ring around the basket on one, the lane of trees on another... ect.

The pond was gross, be prepared to toss a scrub disc cause you will not want to fish it out. Lost a disc tossing to... 7 or 8, whichever goes across the lake. I think 8.

Over all i give it a 1.5 - 2. If it wasnt for the basket placement i woulda given this course a 0 - 1.

Pros: There are eight good playable holes in this park.
Cons: Plenty. There are no numbers on any of the tees except 5. Tees for holes 7 and 9 are missing. Navigation is poor except as best guess. Both tees on eight are so overgrown, it would be impossible to make a decent throw from either, which would lead to an automatic lost disc in the pond as there is only 25 feet of fairway to number eight's basket. No restrooms and almost no trashcans.
Other Thoughts: I could not, in good conscience, recommend playing this course to anyone, except maybe for practice. The upkeep is slack and the tees need to be numbered properly. Nice park, but just not a good disc golf course.

 Surprisingly Decent

Pros: 1) There is a good variety of holes out here ranging from mostly open, some lightly wooded holes, and some tight shule guarded holes. It is nice on a little 9 hole course to have such a good variety.

2) This is a really cool property, although the first 5 holes are mostly open, flat, and turfed holes, the last 4 are the highlight. Hole #1 has a nice second tee allowing for a long distance throw over a pond/wetland. #2 has a basket that is tucked into the brush. #4 has a basket tucked underneath some small stringy looking shrubs. There are plenty of gaps but you need to bring the disc in low. #5 has the basket tucked right in between 3 leggy trees. The gaps are small The little sandy hollow on #7 is cool, the throw over the water on Hole #8 is a nice feature. #9 finishes with a tight fairway underneath some more of those leggy trees.

3) Red/Blue posts mark the two tees on #1 and #8. The rest of the holes have only one tee. It sure is nice to offer the two short tees ont he water shots, someone was really thinking about the big picture when these extra tees were put in.

4) This course is definitely beginner friendly. It presents a challenge to all players because of the unique basket locations. There is water involved and plenty of trees to contend with, but the holes are short enough beginners will not get completely frustrated.
Cons: 1) Older Discatchers are starting to deteriorate from being out all the time. Paint is fading, a hint of some rust on a few of the baskets and chains.

2) The hollow between #6 through #9 is a little scary. It really seems like a place where you are bound to find homeless people or someone you really do not want to run in. The property is up against a row of fencelines along a property line and also some more fenced property to the West so it is sort of landlocked. Nowhere to run if someone was there for the wrong reasons.

3) Tees are dirt/grass. The grass is mostly wore out so they are mostly dirt. You may need to move to the side of some of the tees to get to good ground.

4) Navigation is a little wierd from #3 to #4 and from #7 to #8. # 9 tee is also invisible I think because of some construction in that corner of the property. Signs would help.

5) While the posts are helpful for navigation, there is no hole map, no distance listed, the only thing ont he post is the Hole #.

6) Throwing over the cul-de-sac is goofy and it's too bad they couldn't have avoided it. However, I doubt that there are too many cars that get in the way. It is a good hole despite the throw over the road.
Other Thoughts: This is a decent 9 hole course. This course does not take up a lot of acreage so it is a pretty quick play. It is fairly beginner friendly especially because of the well designed alternate short tees on #1 and #8.

Pros: I like this course for what it is and for what it isnt. There is never anyone here so you can play at your own pace. The discathers are great and always bring a smile to my face when I see those yellow bands in the woods. This course has 2 sets of tees making for a good 18 holes when played from both sets. The shorter set is much easier then the longer set and they change the shot just enough. I like the greens becasue they are all fun and have something to think about before your shot. You have to know your disccs here because if you play for a skip your not going to get it. You have to be accurate and you also have to throw a little big on some shots like hole 8 but even there you can play safe if you want. All in all this is a fun place to play and since there isnt much around here its at least worth the stop once.
Cons: The bugs can get very bad here during the warmer months. Navigation might be an issue for some but the course isnt too big, so if you have a little common sence you can find where your going. The sandburrs are also horrible so lookout when you get home and try to take off your socks.
Other Thoughts: Lots of fun to hit if your leaving the city and heading to Padre. You can get your golf in without taking forever and not make the ole lady to mad.
