Pros: Great course flow. 9 down... 9 back.
Hole variety is spot on. Hole Shots, long drives, ace potential, elevated baskets...
Concrete tees are great.
Cons: Signage is lacking. I like the markers on the tees, but first timers often ask where the next hole is.
Also, the baskets are hard to see even when they are in the open. They could use a good coat of bright colored paint.
Other Thoughts: I love this course. It's close enough to work that I get to do 6-9 holes on my lunch break. As a less than average player, this is a hard course to make par, but still helps with shot development and accuracy.
Whoever put the basket on hole 11 in the top of the tree is a crazy nut! I LOVE IT!!! Never change it!
Great Park !
Pros: Shady area for majority of course
Great Variety of shots off the tee in both distance and locations.
Nicely laid out with short walks between pins and next baskets
Cons: Can be a little muddy after significant rainfall.
Some tee pads do not have hole markers
Other Thoughts: Such a great course to play! Had a great variety of shots in play and able to rebound nicely if you have a bad shot off the tee on a majority of the holes. Had about six other people on the course at the time, but was nice way to keep pace of play with those in front of us.

1) It is very hard to lose a disc here. Not a lot of water or woods for that matter. Hole 10 might be the only hole that you could honestly lose a disc on.
2) Everything on the course plays as a par 3 and going from the regular tees to the advanced tees, definitely makes a difference in how challenging the hole/course becomes. Which is nice because some courses, there really isn't much of a difference. So if you get bored playing the regulars or if you have mastered those tees, try the advanced and I'm sure you will see a higher score that round.
3) Tons of shade
4) Plenty of holes that you should be able to let lose of a disc and not worry to much about going long or OB
5) Course is well kept, but even when it isn't, its not like you have to search for your disc very long. Grass never gets too long and their are no woods to shoot into making you have to search which is nice. When you want to play but don't want to have to worry about losing a disc, this course and L.L. WOODS are my go to courses.
1) popular course so it is busy a lot of the time even during the week.
2) TONS of trees. Especially from the advanced, you have even more in your line. If you get lucky you can get through, but you can also have a bad round and get super frustrated because you will some how find every tree on each hole.
3) due to how many trees there are, if it rains, this course can be muddy for quite some time. Due to the shade and moisture, it can get pretty nasty out there for majority of the holes. Then the tee pads get really nasty and hard to throw from. I would avoid this course if it's rained recently.
Other Thoughts: Great course though, one of my favorites. I wouldn't bring a noobie here though, they will find a tree almost every time which would most likely deter them from wanting to play again because they didn't have a good first time experience. Try LL Woods for a new player. You always want a friend who hasn't played before to have a good time and want to come back and play with you, this is not that course. They will double if not triple a lot of these holes. Trust me, I know. I've brought two friends with me separately and I had to convince them after 18 that not all courses are like that because they did not have fun. Doing bad at anything sucks.

Pros: Very nice course. shielded from the wind and sunlight for most of the course. The shade will make it nice in the hot summer.
Cons: It is easy to shoot at the wrong basket in several spots as has been discussed before, but I played with someone that was familiar with the course.
Other Thoughts: Hole 10 needed to be mowed, tall grass steals any chance for skips. I usually steer away from intercity courses but I was very happy with this one.

Fun all around course
Pros: Most of the course with the exception of 13-15 is well shaded, which is great in the summer
Plenty of trees in the fairway. It's not the most difficult course, but you can use the trees to play with different lines.
The creek is clear and shallow, so you're not likely to lose a disc. Part or all of it is often dry in the summer.
Great use of limited space and elevation.
Concrete tees, and two on most holes.
Good place to bring friends who are new and still have a good time.
Cons: Some tee boxes are a little short for a good run up.
Not very intuitive layout. Hard to know where all the tees and pins are the first few times. Bring a map.
Need better numbers on the baskets. The first few times I played I threw at 18s pin on hole 2.
Blue baskets are hard to see even when you know where they are. I'm considering going in at night and painting them neon orange.
Other Thoughts: I was going to list litter as a con, but there are trash cans every few holes. It's not the courses fault, it's lazy players. Most of us carry bags...throw your empties in your bag until you get to a can!
For the area, it's one of the more wooded courses. Great for working your technical game and still has a few holes for long open drives.
Overall, it's a nice quiet secluded dg only area good for beginners and still fun though a bit short for advanced players. I live a mile away and am happy to call it my home course.

Pros: -Good Baskets
-Well thought out pin placements
-Great course design
-Multiple tee & pin positions
-Easy to navigate
-Well manicured park
-Uses variety of shots
-Some of the teepads were short
-Lack of parking (especially parking safe from discs)
-Lacked the pizazz required for a 4+ rating
Other Thoughts: This is a really great course. A course has to be really outstanding to me to receive over a 4, North Park is a great design - but lacks the individuality required for a 4+ rating.
That being said, the elevated basket on 11 in the tree was definitely a signature hole.

Pros: Very nice park and course that is well taken care of. A lot of the holes have long and short teepads as well as as long and short pin placement. Baskets are really nice and course requires a lot of different shots. Some holes require a big arm and some require your finesse game to get around or thru trees.
Cons: The flow of the course was a little bit of a drag and included some added walking to try and find the next hole. Also it was a bummer to see trash out on the course. The trash wasn't too bad but they could use more trash cans to prevent it.
Other Thoughts: If your close its a must play, about a 20 min drive for me and I'm glad I made it, it was worth the drive. Would play again for sure.

Pros: The design of the course was phenominal, given the amount of actual space that the park has and the length of the holes. There seems to be no wasred space in the park. The 'creek' comes in to play on many holes adding risk/reward aspects to a good number of holes. But since it is only 2-3 feet wide and very shallow there is very little risk to losing a disc. Good use of the minimal elevation change. The fence was beginning to go in on a few holes to mark fairways which gave a very nice aesthetic and makes you aware of the OB from the tee. The holes were dug for more trees to be planted which is much needed in a few locations.
Cons: A few pin and tee placements on a couple holes make for a potential hazard ( 16 pin / 17 tee & 4 pin / 5 tee). However trees were in the process of being planted to help protect the tee area. The only other con that stood out was a few of the tee boxes could have been larger ( hole 2 seemed very small).
Other Thoughts: Overall this course, for me, is worth the trip to the other side of the metroplex. The course seems to be neatly kept and having two tees for most holes adds to the whole experience and creates a much larger course than what you'd expect.

Pros: The course has improved greatly since the oil company left. Maps on both ends, easy to follow, Challenging, nice baskets. Love all the trees!
Cons: Frustrating because all my discs become tree magnets when I play here, but that is only because of my inabilities.
