Pros: **Update 4-3-16 Course could really use some mowing/cleaning/upkeep, went and played this weekend and it was pretty rough out there**

Nicely kept, challenging shots, signature holes.

Cons: I think a couple holes could be more well mowed, but that is probably due to all the rain we have had lately. If you want to go play somewhere and bomb throws off the tee, this isn't the course for you.
Other Thoughts: I'm a beginner, and found this course mildly frustrating. More likely it was just my bad play, but it seemed pretty difficult at times.

All variety of shots wooded and open.
Well maintained for the most part.
A lot of work has been put into the course.
2 teepads for majority of the holes.
OB's make it interesting.

Pros: I love this course! Short walking distance between tees. Multiple trees make strategy more challenging. Concrete tee boxes instead of dirt which is a plus. Overall I think the city or organization is doing their best to maintain this park in decent shape.
Cons: Baskets are painted blue and very hard to see. If it was hot pink or orange, it would be a lot better. Also there are no "Next Tee" navigation.
Other Thoughts: Instead of putting the Disc Golf map near Hole 10, the city needs to put it near Hole 1 so people can review before playing. What were they thinking putting the map information on Hole 10?

Pros: Challenging ourse with a lot of varying shots for Right AND Left handers.

- Parking is usually easy, close to hole 1 and 18 ends next to the parking.
- General layout is good but hard to navigate without a map or a local. Once you have played it a few times, its easy to get it down.
- There are many routes you can take on most of the holes, there are a lot of trees which make for interested routes.
- Mostly technical. There are a couple short hyzer shots, but most of the holes you are trying to navigate through trees.
- Mandos that are in place are obvious and appropriate.
- Teepads are in good condition and placed well.
- Baskets vary in age and brand...but really not that big of a deal. Mostly DGA.

Overall, this a great, fast to play technical course that will tremendously help your game. Low ceilings and a great variety of routes.
Cons: The park is currently being invaded by a pipeline company which affects play on a couple holes. HOWEVER, they city claims that they are getting a lot of money from this and will contribute to fixing up the course afterwards!
*Update-Pipeline stuff has been finished for a long time and the course is completed..quite a few holes with 2 pad positions even.

Pros: Close to highway (North Loop 820), lots of well placed trees, bushes, creeks and pin positions. Great new baskets and tee-pads. (at least they seem new) This course uses the available obstacles and terrain really well. if you can navigate the tree channels then you'll have some great chances for ace-runs.
Cons: Not a lot of long drives at this course, though the few that there are seem unique and well thought out. Pretty cramped as far as the layout and it was a bit hard to navigate around as the course crosses over itself a few times. Bring the course map in the Links/Files section. It helped to keep my bearings.
Other Thoughts: When I first played this course it was under a lot of construction from the oil drilling operation and I gave it a terrible review, hated it. With all of the updates and improvements, this course has quickly become one of my favorites in DFW. You got to go try it.

Pros: -Very unique holes, i.e. 11 with the basket on the platform. Loved it!
-Very rewarding if you are an accurate thrower.
-You don't have to be a bomber to get a decent score. Focuses more on accuracy than distance. But there are a few air out holes (13 and 15)
-Bathrooms on site
-A few ace opportunities. But there are no easy aces here. You will have to be accurate to get one.
-Uses the available elevation changes very well.
-Plenty of shade in the summer
-OB Creek is disc friendly - hard to lose one.
Cons: -Parking lot is pretty rough for lowered vehicles.
-Traffic on 820. It can get pretty dead stop there in the mornings and afternoons.
-If you have tree-itis, you will have a pretty elevated score.
-Fairly difficult to navigate your first time. Bring someone that knows it or get a map.
Other Thoughts: Love the layout of this course. It will force you to turn the disc both ways to be successful here. If you have a sidearm, it is indeed helpful. I really like the uniqueness of North Park. The basket on hole 11 is elevated about 4 feet and is in a tree. It is a risky putt cause if you miss, you are well beyond what you would usually miss by. That and the tree guards the basket from 2 sides. But it is AWESOME! There is another sleeve in the tree that puts the basket about 10 feet above your head, so even a park job leaves you with a pretty challenging putt.

North Park has really flourished in the 6 years I have been playing it. There's a great disc shop just north of it (Ideal Discs) and plenty of places to eat if you decide to stick around.

There are plenty of minis here as well!

If you are wanting a quick round and are in the DFW area, this should definitely make your list.

Pros: 9 of the holes have tee pads.
good use of the land
Several good shots
Good use of the trees forcing a few lefty shots.
Most of the holes have fairways. (no throw and pray holes)
Cons: Needs tee signs, although I was able to find my way round pretty good. (I had a map)
9 dirt tee pads. (I understand cement pads are being worked on)
A few of the holes are a little too close to each other forcing mando's
Mix of baskets in mixed condition.
I do not like the elevated basket on #11

Other Thoughts: I was not expecting a course as good as this when I drove out there. I actually can't wait to get back and play this course.

I nearly aced #11 bouncing off the basket then tree and landing on the wood base. Good thing I didn't have to putt at that crap.

I was playing fast, but played the course pretty good, I shot a 46 with a few missed putts.

What I liked about this course is the amount of trees it has on the course. We don't get much of that in Texas. I also like the fact there is no rough.

There were a lot of people out there and they all offered to let me play though. That was very nice.

Pros: -Concrete t-pads for most holes. They're working on getting the others
-Different pin positions for most holes now with new positions.
-Terrain Varety (trees, small creek, open holes, elevation changes
-Not a very populated course, never really see many people out there
-Windy day course, being that the trees shelter you pretty good from it on most holes
-Numerous trash cans making the course pretty clean
-Nice park and surrounding neighborhood
-Easy to find
-Close to Arcadia #2, making for a good double course day ( Pizza Garden in between courses on Denton Highway...look it up and check it out!!! All you can eat pizza and salad for only about 4 bucks)
Cons: -Not all the t-pads are there
-Can be one of the worst to play on a wet day, get very muddy.
-Cops do patrol this one, so keep a heads up d.golfers
-Traffic on the highway can be a biatch
-Very difficult to navigate if you don't have a map...you will get lost, so be map-in-hand
Other Thoughts: Nothing really bad to say about this course outside the normal irritations of the game.

Fun course to play makin good used of a creek (winds through most of the frnt nine and some of the back) and trees (low ceilings, tunnel shots both left and right doglegging) Good finesse course and driving accuracy practice.

Challenging, but not to hard. Two thumbs up from me. Worth a drive if you have the time.

Pros: Something Different
Easy Birdies, But Not Gimmies

Cons: Lack of Tee Boxes
Baskets Mix Between Disccatchers and Mach
Police Patrol
Other Thoughts: I really like the basket that is literally in the trees, mounted on top of a wooden box. Truly unique.

A tip on finding you way to the next hole:
A single bar on the bottom basket is painted red, that will point you to in the direction of the next tee pad.

Pros: I am a big fan of this course even though I was about to wak off after the second hole because of navigation issues. With that being said, this course is very cool and has just about every shot that you can use. There are some short tight holes mixed in with some open boomers as well. You will need your short technical game and then you can also use your "field" time also. The elevation is used pretty well here and makes for some fun shots!. Nothing really long so the course is pretty beginner friendly and there isnt much of a place to lose plastic. The mix of shots is fun because I think it evens out the playing field between the newer and more advanced player. There are little mable inserts in some of the tees that are pretty cool when you get them. Lots of shade which is always a bonus in Texas. The elevated basket on 11 is cool change from most courses.
Cons: The navigation is HORRIBLE for first timers. There are no numbers on the baskets and at one time I threw to the wrong basket not knowing any better. There are no tee signs so you have to look for patches of dirt or little postage stamp concrete pads where there is concrete. The places where there is concrete the pads are small and are exposed out of the ground leading to a step up. The grass is tall so it pretty much takes aways any rollers. The course also cris crosses a couple times which doent help either.
Other Thoughts: With all of those negatives this course is still better then the other one in the area because there are more "memorable" holes along with other bonuses. I feel that this course could be rated alot higher if there was a little work done on it and feel that the rating is low for the quality that is here. This course is way better then just a "good" rating and deserves more then that.
