Pros: Nice course in a public park setting.
Course is not in the way of joggers, walkers.
Now easy to find off main road.
Plenty of variety: short, long, trees, water
Nice grounds, nice concrete t-pads, nice baskets.
Cons: Train gave me a heat attack when she blew, glad my buddy knew CPR.
Several parking spots, drive around and look for hole #1
Basket on hole four was tucked away, make sure you know where it is when you throw.
Other Thoughts: Went here on a whim going through town for business. End of day, so we gave it a try. Glad we did, it's a hidden gem (some small town have nice 9 hole courses) tucked away, you gotta look for it. Anytime I see 9 hole courses I check them out, I have found some really cool places tucked away.

Great course with many obstacles. If your a beginner, lay up and save your discs, if your experienced you can really show off your skills at this course.

Nice grounds. Walking trail did not seem like an issue. Nice old school downtown, you could just imagine gunfights in the early western days.

There were some random concrete pads in the park, you could always use them to play holes differently. I think they once were picnic table pads, but you could use them for some options if the park was not busy.

Play a round once (9) or twice (18) I will be back to this one again for sure.

 Plays tough in the middle for sure

Pros: There is a good mix of long and short holes. Water threat to keep you on your toes and add to the challenge of your round. There is a practice basket by the entrance to the park. There are other amenities in the park.
Here are my hole observations:
1-lengthy shot that plays slightly dog leg left and slightly uphill
2-another long shot plays slightly downhill with a creek on the right hand side
3-plays dog leg to the right with a creek on the right hand side
4-has a walking path on the left hand side and the creek on your right, plays L to R
5-throws across the pond with the basket on a hill/island
6-throws over the creek/pond then there is a landing area. Upon approach from the landing area there is a little marsh on the right side by the basket. Basket sits on a berm.
7-long wide open hole with the walking path on the right side and the creek/pond on the left. Land slopes towards the creek with the basket out in the open
8-plays in the middle of the park has the most trees to navigate around
9-longest hole on the course, has a couple of walking paths that come into play on this hole so be advised
Cons: No distance on the signs for #1 & #8.
#2's tee marker is missing.
Back tracking from 4's basket to 5's tee box and the walk from 7's basket to 8's tee slows the flow down a bit. The rough that is next to the creek is very thick and you could very easily lose a disc in there.

Other Thoughts: This is a pretty challenging 9 hole course that has both length and water threat. The middle of the course, holes 5-7, can be brutal if the water levels are high. If you look at the pics in the media section you will see what I mean, however upon my visit the creek/pond was very low. This isn't a beginner friendly course as there is too much threat of losing a disc to the pond or in the tall weeds. Packing a floating disc or a throw away disc might not be a bad idea especially if this park has had a decent amount of rainfall.
Now with that said it is still a fun play. I enjoyed the challenge that this course provided. There was the risk reward factor in the interior holes and a decent mix on the perimiter holes to keep it nice and balanced. The only thing that kept me from giving this course a 3 rating was the fact of the missing signage on 3 holes here. It would help if the signage was replaced to let those out of towners know how long the holes are and how they play. If you are in the area and are up for a challenging round then hit this course up.

  not my favorite by far

Pros: Its a nice layout for how the park is set up, really good distance on most of the holes for a good first rip on the plastic.
Cons: Have to say if you can rip over 300ft first throw this course will just piss you off. Lots of anhysering discs to get a good line and one bad throw can destroy a par chance. Also unless you have a 3 step or less run in you have to time your foot steps cause the tee padsmake hunters pads look big. Also over half the signs are missing :/.
Other Thoughts: If you decide to play it, since no one else has posted it that I have seen, tee one is to the right of the play ground next to the trees. But bring extra discs

 Awesome hidden course, but challenging.

Pros: If you are looking for a challenge with a lot of variety this is the spot, the first two holes are very long without much room to really drill one. There is a blind shot down a hill with a creek just passed the basket on the 3rd hole, the 4th hole you have to make a long and accurate shot to be in any position to make it around a wall of trees on the right that is impossible to throw through, but there is also a pond on the left. The 5th hole is shot over a pond and onto a peninsula/mound with the basket up high so any inaccuracy is severally punished. Hole number 6 is a shot over a pond and a marsh with low overhanging trees directly in front of the tee. The disc snatching 7th hole runs right along the side of the pond and rhbh throwers may lose some discs. There is always wind funneled onto this hole that tends to push discs towards the pond. Hole 8 has only one flight path that allows for a good spot near the basket and it's a hyzer shot for rhbh that goes through a narrow alley of trees that slightly arcs towards the hole. The final hole lets you really crank one through an open field but then ends with a throw through trees, concrete tee boxes, always mowed, great use of the terrain and pond available.
Cons: Hard to find.
Very difficult for beginners and intermediates.
Busy on nice days.
Other Thoughts: If you are a beginner play the first three holes and the last two, otherwise you will probably lose several discs in the holes surrounding the pond.
If you are a skilled player looking for a new challenge go to this course, you won't be disappointed!

 Meanest nine holer I've ever played

Pros: Well designed. Even though its only nine holes, this is probably one of the most challenging courses in the Tulsa area. Pro/advanced caliber players will love this. Mostly open fairways, but you just cant bomb away, due to nasty trees to the right of the first four holes, formidable water hazards on 5-7, and often trees restricting your aim off most of the pads. Several blind pins from the tee box. Inaccuracy is punished severely.
Cons: Rec players, please, unless you're in a masochistic mood, stay home (or hit Chandler or Riverside nearby). This is a great place to lose your plastic. The water shots are neat, and they do leave a weenie route around the water, but not much of one, and that area on those holes is occupied by a walking path. Hole 8 is really the only hole without other park activity in the way.
Other Thoughts: If challenge were the only consideration, I could raise Kelly Lane a whole star. I had to wait for pedestrians on a few occasions on a weekday in November. I can only imagine what this course gets on a weekend during the summer, or how it plays when that notorious Oklahoma wind is howling. A second (hopefully shorter) set of tee boxes would be helpful in making the course more rec friendly.

 The little engine that could

Pros: This is a decent 9 holer. There are nine good baskets and some very unique holes that make you want to come back for more. Hole 5 is a very cool peninsula hole on a mound that is a great risk vs reward hole. The pads almost seem like they were poured backwards but at least they are concrete. Easy to follow even for first timers. The park was well manicured and very clean with lots of trash cans. There are 4x4 poles taht mark all of the tees and some have actual signs. The little elevation that is here is used which is cool. Being so long, you can throw just about any kind of shot and get away with long as your not in the pond. This course will make you a better golfer for sure.
Cons: VERY long for a 9 hole course. It almost seems like they could have put a short 18 hole course here but decided to make it 9. The rough is rough. If you yank a disc and you find yourself next to the creek you might need a new disc because that stuff is tall. The pond is nasty and makes the last couple of holes smell like sewer. The pads are a little short for how long the course is. Watch out for walkers and bikers......they are EVERYWHERE!!
Other Thoughts: This was an ok course but after playing alot of other Tulsa courses this weekend I would rather go the extra couple of miles and play on the city but if you live near or just passing through, its worth the stop. Have fun and enjoy

Pros: Nice concrete tee pads throughout. All baskets in good condition except for # 1 which was standing but with basket on the ground. A couple of the tee signs were down or missing, but the course was relatively easy to follow. Finding my way into the park might have been a problem if I wasn't playing with a local Disc Golfer (thanks Dale). Good variety of holes with great usage of available terrain. Seemed to me to be some fairly long drives involved.
Cons: I can see this park being used a lot more in better weather, which might make play difficult. Lots of mud, even though the ponds were showing low water lines. Very challenging for a first timer and even for a steady player.
Other Thoughts: This course is very deceptive. Looks like a nice easy par happy little 9 hole by the side of the road, but not so! This course kicked my butt, (only one par all night) ate two of my discs (hole # 5, and hole # 7), and almost ate another on # 7. I would play it again - hopefully with some idea of the course, I could drop a few strokes. Bring some beat up discs to throw over the water. # 5 to me is the signature hole on this course, thrrowing over the pond to a "peninsula". Overthrow, underthrow or go left, and your disc is lost. # 6 is pretty cool also, going over the pond and then over another little pond (or marsh) on the far side. If you're looking for a challenging 9 hole - this is it

Pros: Great use of terrain on first few holes when creek is mildy present,the tricky water peninsula hole was decent and the shot next to where water could be more involved during rainy weeks would make the round more interesting,the whole course isn't totally engulfed with water there are some nice chances to really let one fly.
Cons: Signs are missing but the posts are there except hole one.You'll hafta look for the tees but its not terribly difficult, had a good time playing here was kind of surprised.
Other Thoughts: If your disc doesn't go in the water you may hit a jogger instead.

 Challenging Course

Pros: Lots of excellent and challenging shot options with a very nice layout for a 9 hole course. Good course to play if you don't have a whole afternoon to devote to playing.

Cons: Longer tee pads and no other tee box options. The park is a little difficult to find if you do not know the area real well. The park is also busy with runners and dogs are nice days.
Other Thoughts: The city just approved a pedestrian bridge to be built on Taft/117 to provide better access to the park.

Tee signs are down on most holes.

Pros: Course is a great challenge for being a 9 hole course. A great variety of shots that will keep you on your toes the entire time you play. Well kept and beautiful park. Nice signs and small pads. Some of the most unique and amazing shots I have seen.
Cons: Theres a large chance that you will lose a disc when you play this course. Your throwing at or around creeks or ponds on every hole except for 8 and 9.
Other Thoughts: BRING A FLOATING DISC. You will play some very challenging holes including ones that have you throw over 2 ponds and onto an island in the pond. Be prepared to lose a disc as well if you throw it into the creek. An amazing course that will require patience and skill.
