Pros: -multiple turain
--Up and downhill shots
--Wooded and open field shots
-brand new tee pads
--most holes have two tee pads
-signs marking what holes you are at
Cons: -extremely easy to get lost in pile of baskets
-when it rains it is extremely muddy
-bridges are not really located in the best spots
-grass was really long
Other Thoughts: The grass is really grown up right now and so your disc could get a lost (especially for my yellow sidewinder). Bridges not really located in the best spots but it does look like they are going to be putting in more. Also a funny note, there are some fun dogs up on the hill that freak out when you bring a dog to the park. This park is great for dogs as well.

The Drilling Is Gone
Pros: 18 baskets.
Easy to walk terrain.
Challenging tree obstacles.
No disc drowning water. The ditch is retrieval friendly- not deep and the water is clear.
Many baskets have 2 tee pads now and some of the longs are l-o-n-g.
Ample parking throughout the park.
Cons: Construction on I-820 is ongoing but not intrusive.
There is a pipeline station that isn't really an obstacle but sometimes crew trucks are parked near it.
The grass is coming back but it's still quite muddy at times where it hasn't.
Other Thoughts: I had fun. There are some long drives and some places where you have to play through the trees. Nice change ups from one tee to another.
Had to give this another disc! With the new tee pads in place, many baskets now having two tees, bridges and a general clean up- this course is well worth being my home course.

Under Rated Gem
Pros: Great combination of hole lengths, tight and open holes as well as righty and lefty holes. This course requires so many different types of shots. You have to thread the needle on on hole and then next you get to air it out with a wide open 500' drive that still demands accuracy to even par. Now that the oil company is out the course is starting to look a lot better.
Cons: Next to no signage.
The dirt tees get rutty and rocky. Caution is required.
Hard to navigate for newcommers.
Other Thoughts: This course seems to be very underated as far as it's difficulty. It seems that the city is starting to rebuild the course. Hopefully there will be some new tee pads put in as well as some signs.

Wait until after the construction is completed.
Pros: Good location near my house. Lots of different shots through the trees. Not crowded.
Cons: Had a map and still couldn't find where to tee off from. On several holes just found the basket and then walked around until I found a decent place to throw from. Hole 1 has a nice tee box with a granite marker in the concrete. They need to do that for every hole. I'm sure it will be a better experience when the construction workers leave.
Other Thoughts: I'll try back again after the rehab of the park. Hopefully they will have some better tee pads and better signs to point you towards the next tee pad.

Pin 11 sound wall
Pros: The oil company moved from #13; I believe, which only leaves the sound wall on #11, as j0atz stated. The creek by #17 has gotten a lot more clear, since they left. This makes it easy to spot a lost disc on those go for shots that fly too long. Good course for beginners with premium plastic, because the trees will tear up the cheaper plastic. The terrain and vegetation allows for easy spotting of wildly thrown discs.
Cons: Still another drilling company working diligently and blocking # 11. The other company has left; however, they make-shift road remains in a few holes. They removed several trees along the hi-way, so now it feels less secluded.

Nice, Short Technical Course
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.

I finally came back
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: This coure has a little something for everyone. Short accurate shots and long drive shots. Its mostly shaded, which is great for these hot Texas summers. The course is very well maintained, mostly mowed and clean. Not alot of action here or at least not like some of the other courses in the area, but has some of the most challenging and interesting holes.
Cons: Mixed tee's, some are concrete some are dirt,
no multiple pin positions, no signage for navigation.
I only put these things here because they are what other people would consider cons. These things do not make the experience for me. I can very easily look past these small things for such a fun course.
Other Thoughts: This is an up and coming course that i WILL rate a five when all the upgrades are done. I would recomend this course over almost all others, it is a must play!!

Definitely Worth Playing once or 10x
1 Helpful / 1 Not
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.

May want to follow the people in front of you
Pros: ***UPDATE 11/8/10***
I love playing this course. Once you know how it is navigated its a lot of fun to play. The company who put in the gas lines paid for all brand new baskets to be put in, painted to point you to the next whole direction as well.
I find most people who don't like this course, can't play the course as well as it looks like you should be. Super technical, and tests your upshot skills.
Yes not all cement tees, but some things you just got to deal with.
Fast and short course. Not a crazy amount of walking. Challenging forest.
Cons: If you play during business hours there are most likely construction workers around. They're gone during the weekend.
Difficult to navigate. Not any real direction on where the next tee is. Had to use photos from this website to find the next tee's the first time I played it. When there are markers, they're pretty run down.
Other Thoughts: Decent, but overall I think the course needs a make over.
