Great fun beginners course
Pros: This is a brand new course in a young, clean park. The baskets, pads, signs are all pristine. The park is small but the layout seems open. This is a fun park for beginners to learn on and advanced players to hone their short game. Every hole is an ace opportunity if you can drive 275 feet which is the longest distance from tee to basket.
Cons: Other than the advanced tees being next to the fence on three of the holes, there is not much bad to say about this course except that it is a bit far for a 9 hole course if you are not in the North West part of the Metroplex.
Other Thoughts: There are great tree placements that when mature, will make for some great skill shots to complete the ace.
Hole 9 for instance is in the center of a ring of young oak trees. In a few years this hole may be a local favorite.
There is a small pond on the left side of hole two with very tall reeds that will eat your disc. You'll want to stay right of the basket on this one.
There is not a lot of shade yet, so play early in the morning or in the evening during the Summer. You can get 9 holes in 30 minutes easy from the short or advanced tees.
By the way, there is only a 20 foot difference between the short tees and middle, and another 20 feet from the middle to advanced in most cases.

Close Quarters-Tails Down
Pros: Great pitch and putt type course. There was a great job in the landscaping. The future of this course looks good. It is well maintained. Finding your way from hole to hole is easy and this is a great course for beginners, but a fun ace course for more advanced players. You are not likely to lose a disc on this course and the many benches and trash-cans should keep this place in good shape.
Cons: On holes 6,7, & 8 you will not be happy playing from the advanced tees. They are marked right up to a fence. The close quarters means you have to just stand and throw for those advanced tees. It is too bad they did not put the cement tees on all the tee areas. I say this because the intermediate and advanced tees or grass/dirt style, while the close tees are all cement.
Other Thoughts: I love the sidewalk that encircles the course and the people were real friendly. The landscaping is very nice. It was well designed and very comfortable place to play. The word is that they are discussing the idea of making this an 18 hole course eventually. They have the the land and enthusiasm to make this work.
Update: The parks department has been adding lots of trees lately to make these small holes more accuracy orientated, but they are still very young trees and won't be much trouble for quite some time.
