Pros: Visible pins, easily navigated, there's a box on the first tee that has scorecards in it, equal mix of open and wooded holes, it's on its on island, more people go to the other Russellville course so you can kind of have your own disc gold course island.
Cons: Tons of places to lose a disc, certain wood holes have zero lanes to drive, swarms of dragonflies and awnry geese

Pros: Great 18 hole course, has nice signs and great obstacles. I love how the course from open to the woods back into the open. Long holes as well as short.
Cons: I do wish the city would put in bathrooms and a fountain for water. I noticed a sign that says that the City Matienence ends right before the park, maybe thats why? I could say water, but how is that a Con, honestly? It is part of the game, I believe if you play on this course long enough, you know what you can and can't do. Just aways be safe...
Other Thoughts: I love this place, it is the first course I ever played on considering I live 3 miles away...

Pros: This course is great. Lot's of challenging holes. There's a good mix of short and long shots. This course is a true disc golf course. That is the only use of the area so no need to worry about playgrounds, joggers, ect. Tons of wildlife and great signs, baskets, tee pads.
Cons: The city won't put in bathrooms, water, ect. Hole 10's sign says it's a par 4 but is only 300 feet and straight ahead. Any "cons" are really just nitpicking at a great course.
Other Thoughts: The most legitimate, best course in the state in my opinion. Everyone worries about the water so bring discs that are easily replaced.

Pros: Play probably 4-5 times a week. Has made me a better player with learning different types of shots and throws. Love playing it even with the risk of losing a disc.
Cons: Water, mainly on hole one and three. Have hit a tree before and it shoots out the wrong way and is just gone on 3rd hole. Wish there were a couple more benches out there to sit and rest on.
Other Thoughts: Never really have to worry about getting in anybodies way except on the first hole (18th coming back at you) and on the 10th (11th tee to the left if you have a bad first throw). Love going out and playing the course.

A great course
Pros: Wow I was so surprised when I got here. easy to find course. The holes are laid out so well. Nice mix of open shot with and wooded holes that are very technical. The grass is moed so nice just like something out of a magazine. Find your way around will be no problem there is a course map as soon as you start hole one. Plus the sign are placed so that you will be able to find the next hole.
Cons: It can be really hot in the summer time. Not access to water or a bathroom. If you lose a disc in the main channel it is most likely gone for good it is deep. If you lose it next to a brushy part of the waters edge be mindful of snakes.
Other Thoughts: One of the best courses I have ever played. I would love to be closer to this park. If you have any question feel free to send me a message.

Pros: This course has so much to offer and in a wonderful setting. It is set up for any kind of player and very well laid out. From start to finish there are no confusing "where is the basket" holes or thick thick trees and brush to battle. Some one took their time and took great used of the land!
Tee pads are very nice, the signs are great and the pins are clear and easy to find, no blind throws!
Getting to the course is easy as well, A nice sign points the way from the road.
Cons: Some of the holes are by the water and could easily go in. Deep water makes getting your disc back next to imposable, but if you play it safe, I would not worry about it!, No bathrooms as of yet, and in the summer there could be some boats running though at the ski park, but its better than a Highway!
Other Thoughts: This is a great course, after driving 2 hours from Hot Springs, I was pleasantly surprised and loved every second on the course. There was 2 inches of snow at the time but my girl and I loved it. The setting could not be any better, nice over looks on the water, the woods were nice and clear, so you could see the little critters running and flying around. A great Sunday afternoon course.

Pros: A tough and challenging course. Technical shots are required on most every hole. (You have to pick your flight path and landing place for most every shot.)
Cons: The only real con is the lack of amenities. (Bag hangers, benches and trash cans.)
Other Thoughts: I played this course with a newb who had only played once. He learned the meaning of real disc golf on this course. We both had a blast even though my favorite driver is now at the bottom of the lake. I highly recommend this course.

What a Course to cut your teeth on
Pros: * Variety of hole types should keep a match even with players using different styles.
*Good mixture of short wooded holes and booming open holes.
* Beautiful layout. You can tell a lot of thought was put into course design.
Cons: * Water, water, everywhere...
* Some of the wooded holes just do not have a very good line of sight to basket.
* 522' Par 3 with line of trees on one side andwater on the other
* Eats discs for breakfast.
Other Thoughts: This is my home course, and it is a rough place to learn to play. The course plays with your head. You feel like you have to be conservative on a lot of hole for fear of losing a disc. It does make me a better player though. Despite all of this I really do love this course for the challenge, and I invite all to come see it.
