Nice neighborhood course
Pros: Cement Tee pads
New Patriot Baskets
course designed well for the park
Cons: As what usually happens in a park, long holes are put in wide open areas and short holes are put in the more technical area.
The course is a short walk from the parking lot.
Other Thoughts: In general, this is a reasonable course. There are a lot of tree's in this park and the course does make use of them as much as it can for an 18 hole medium size park.
It is a short walk from the parking lot over to hole 1. The first two holes are longer holes out and back into a rows of trees.
The course does have several longer holes that are not long enough to be par 4's, but are harder par 3 holes.
Hole #9 sign is currently in the wrong place. They have moved holes 9 and 10, the tee sign for 9 is about 50ft from the basket. The tee pad is behind the tee and down the hill. Still only about a 150ft shot.
Hole 10 is a sweet turnover shot down a hill behind the trees they planted that took out the original 9 and 10.
Hole 11 has a creek hidden on the right, you don't want to be in that mess.
Fun hole 15 throws down a hill with the creek far enough behind the hole to go for it.
Hole 18 is interesting to say the least. It is a hard dogleg left to right. There is no direct shot over the creek to the hole. A nice turnover roller or long skip shot might be best to play this hole well. the ditch your throw around is dry.
In general, this is a good course. A sign on hole one says it was an eagle scout project, that might have been to replace the baskets. They were all brand new.
There were quite a few people out playing, that is always good to see.
Would I play here again?
it is not a destination course, but it is a fun course to play a casual round. Several birdie attempts and some hard par 3 holes. I would enjoy playing this course again. But with that said, the 2 courses out at Lake McMurtry are much better and more challenging.

Decent, but coulda been better
Pros: Decent layout, wasn't difficult to get into the flow from hole to hole. Grass was acceptable in terms of kept after. No glaringly long holes, most were reasonable length for the casual player. Not a bad place to spend part of an afternoon chasin' plastic...
Cons: 2nd basket was missing the top half, no chains, just the catch basket. The rest of the baskets were old and in need of updating. 9 was especially in bad shape.
Other Thoughts: Not very crowded when we were there, the people we did run into were friendly and nice. 11th tee pad had a fallen tree on it I guess they hadn't cleaned up yet, hole was still playable.

Teepads are in
Pros: * Concrete Tees on all 18 holes!
This is a fun course that makes you throw multiple types of shots. There are some great tunnel shots, doglegs, a few holes where water comes into play and a variety of short and long holes. The trees make for great shade in the summer.
Cons: This course gets swampy and overgrown during the rainy season, but once it dries out and is mowed it is a great course.
Some of the baskets are in really bad shape and need some attention.
Other Thoughts: This course is more technical than the other course in Stillwater proper.
You can also stop at El Tap for a relaxing beverage after hole 9.

Pros: Challenging shots, great layout, every hole is marked, baskets are all in pretty good shape
Cons: Only 9 tee boxes, not completely maintained. Can be a swamp after a rain
Other Thoughts: One of the better courses in Stillwater. Plenty of trees and space to play

Pros: Now this is a disc golf course. Lots of trees, tunnel shots, obstacles, and technique needed, but if you hit your line, you're good. It's not the typical hyzer-bomb course which is, sadly, the way the sport has been going. It's a well rounded course. Love it!
Cons: Lack of Signage. Older, beat-up baskets. the teepad on 10, or the basket on 9 could be an issue.
Other Thoughts: If this course had a full set of teepads, and signs, I would give it a 4.... EASILY!!!

The Best Course in Town
Pros: Built around Kameoka trail, the course is beautiful. Unlike Boomer (the other disc golf course), there are trees everywhere that haven't yet been cut down. There's a wide variety of technical holes that are both fun and challenging. There's also quite a few birdy-able holes (for most players) on the back 9.
Cons: The baskets are old, and not always well marked. This has improved recently (thanks Stillwater Disc Golf Club), but it's still not the best marked course, but it's not the worst either.
The tees are dirt. I think this might be changing (I read a rumor that their pouring concrete right now actually) but as of right now they are dirt. Because Stillwater is full of all kinds of players, the tee pads keep getting longer, and some of them have actually moved locations (like hole 1. You're supposed to shoot through the trees, not move up 50 feet to the north and then take a 20 foot step east).
It is a park that exists in nature, so there's snakes, spiders and the like, so be careful when you go searching for your discs.
Other Thoughts: Over all it's a really fun course, it has its flaws, but given the options, it's the best course in town.

Scenic Alternative to Boomer
Pros: Hoyt Grove Park is a decent course and an alternative to Boomer Lake. I play this course on the windy days because it's more protected than boomer. The course generally isn't too busy which is nice. It has a nice variety of technical and open shots.
Hole 5- The tunnel shot.
Hole 6- Birdie Birdie.
Hole 9- Water Hazard to the left. High Risk/Reward.
Cons: Improvements are definitely needed. The course has a few cheap signs, but only on about 5 holes or so. All dirt pads. First time players should either bring someone with them or follow another person. Difficult course to figure out on your own due to lack of signs.
Other Thoughts: This course is not going to compete with the best of courses in the state. Its a great alternative if you are stuck in Stillwater and are looking for something different than boomer. All 18 baskets are there. The tee pad for #1 is right as you walk up the hill to the left. I would call the teepad to the right an alternate, easier and more open drive. To conclude, the course presents a variety of shots that Boomer no longer provides after the tree removal. Best course in the city.
As a resident of Stillwater, I still had a problem finding it the first time. So on 12th and east of Perkins road. It is the parking lot across from the Senior Center. Walk across the bridge and up the hill for #1.

Decent mix of shots
Pros: It is a fun course with a mix of shots from open to wooded. A good mix of technical throws and long throws.
Cons: The baskets for 14 and 18 are are missing.
At least I think it is 14, there is no signage to speak of and no good tee boxes.

Liked what I could find
Pros: Course is in a nice area, with great view of the cemetery. Baskets are in decent shape. Long grass not a problem, and course was dry, so mud was not a problem. Holes had a range from short to long, and the overall hole designs were fine.
Cons: NO tee pads, NO tee signs, NO numbers on the baskets! Pretty big NOs in my book. I followed a twosome for most of the front 9 so I could find the tees and holes, but I decided to skip a couple of holes so I could get home earlier. One basket actually had a number, I think (two sprayed on vertical stripes was meant to be "11"). After that hole, I had no idea where the next 7 holes were. I saw no holes that I had not seen or played before.
Other Thoughts: A rating of 2.0 is defined as reasonable, and a 1.5 is passable.. Rudimentary tee signs would help immensely, and would marking the baskets with numbers. That would bring the rating up to a 3, which is "Good". Do NOT play this course without a local to guide you, unless you enjoy just walking around a disc golf course with a clueless look on your face.

Get out your roller face, son!
Pros: Hoyt GRove doesnt get the respect it deserves in my opinion. It is a must hit if youre near stilly.
-unique hallway shots typically not offered in central OK
-great use of the land, creek and tree layout
-good balance of left to rights, long and tights
-course is in a valley hidden from major winds
-almost always have the course to yourself
Cons: -hit or miss on course conditions- can get overgrown
-natural tee pads (not necessarily a bad thing...)
-course can get confusing hole to hole- not well marked-easy to figure out numerous times through
-2 baskets missing :( i typically throw both anyway, why not?
-one or two tees are near other fairways, keep your head up dawg!
Other Thoughts: Fun course, watch out for horses on people-back and the occasional OSU hottie
other than the missing baskets this course is close to being the shiz
