Pros: Baylor Park has simple dirt tee pads and basic little tee signs on 2" X 4" poles. They give the distance, hole # and par. There are brand new DGA baskets with the red number on top. The front 9 basically plays through the woods/swampy area before opening up into the more open park area.

This front 9 definitely serves up the memorable holes on this course like # 2. It's 282' to a basket on a island surrounded by an ugly murky swamp. Besides numerous lost discs, I'm sure the depths of these stagnant waters are home to gators, crocs, ugly little parasites and snakes of all descriptions. I know I wasn't sticking even a finger in it.
# 8 was another scary throw with ugly swamp on the left and thick unforgiving brush on the right. I'm not sure about the risk/reward on this hole either.
Cons: With all this swamp land, the misquitos were out in droves. I wasn't thrilled with holes #'s 7 or 8. Both were bordering on swamps on one side and thick, thick rough on the other side. The $5 parking fee to play a misquito infested/swampy course with dirt pads is probably not the place I'd choose to spend my disc golfing dollars. There are too many other choices in the area for me.
Other Thoughts: I'm not a fan of courses where losing discs is an everyday occurance and spending countless hours searching is a part of every round. And the front 9 here certainly matches that description. The back 9 is much more forgiving.

 A few years away from being worthwhile

Pros: A few signature holes #2 sits on an island and was definitely a knee-knocker... Some of the holes present a pretty decent challenge and reward if a good throw is performed.
Cons: Wide open course on several holes makes a windy day a nightmare here.

Not worth a $5.00 parking fee in my opinion.
Other Thoughts: This course appears to have room for a full 18 holes. With a few years of upkeep and improvement this will be a worthwhile course.
