Pros: *Good use of the land, up until you get to the last 9
*3 diff pin placements for each basket
*Good variety of shots and discs needed
Cons: *Randomly scattered easy staright aways that only ask you to throw your driver as far as you can tiwce to get across a boring field
*Many holes run back and forth over a paved walking/running trail
*alcohol prohibbited in the park, pfff! haha
*Not very unique
Other Thoughts: It seems as if someone designed a really good course and the just decided to add another 9 that was sub-par at best. It weaves in and out and back on and off trails, a lil confusing, but mostly just annoying. Not a very secluded enjoyable disc golf enviroment like its rival course Sedgley. I guess i would play it if in the area again, but its deff not on my To Do list. I'd rather be playing Campgaw/Mighty Gaw

Pros: Well maintained, lots of variety between holes, not crowded, good signs at the tees showing the throwing path, good signs after the baskets helping you find the next tee, not much walking between holes.
Cons: Only one basket per hole despite there being 3 possible baskets per hole. A little too woodsy for my tastes.
Other Thoughts: I can see how if this was your local course it would be nice for things to be a little different each time. But for people who life far away and will only come here once, having to miss out on a potentially fun hole because only the 200ft novice basket is in place is lame. Just put up all 3 baskets and let the players decide which to play, its not like baskets are that expensive.

Pros: This course plays through the woods, with lots of elevation changes. The interesting thing with this course is the use of multiple Tee pads and pin locations. Each hole was set to one of these 3 locations (A,B,C). It seemed to vary per hole, and I assumed the difficult for the hole increased depending on that setting. All the holes were marked with signs, however the signs weren't very accurate. Large, level concrete pads were set with plenty of running room for strong drives. The majority of the holes were long, with only a few short finesse holes sprinkled in. This course will push your skills, but more it'll push your stamina for long drives over and over again. There were lots of elevation changes on this course as well. Some of the pins were also elevated on man-made bunker boxes.
Cons: Get ready to hike. This course is spread out. Several holes end with lots of hiking to the next tee. There were a few times we got lost trying to find the next hole (especially after hole 13, the trench hole?!) Bring water, we didn't see any water fountains while playing, and this is a demanding course.
Other Thoughts: We played on one of the hottest, most humid days of this year. 90+ with a real feel of 104. It was intense, but we were glad the majority of the holes played through the woods. Once we got to 17 and 18, sweat was just pouring off of us.

I liked this course, it was really challenging. If you're looking for something that's going to test you drive accuracy and distance, this is the course for you.

Pros: Huge course with a beautiful challenging layout. Most holes are wooded with five open holes that make good use of OB to keep you accurate. Makes you use a variety of drives from the tee. 3 pin placements per hole (sometimes more) and positions are changed regularly giving the course a different layout most times you come out. Also some of the positions (14C2, 13B, 9C, 3C, 6C) are the best I've ever seen. On occasion the course will have all baskets in C position for tournament play and will provide you with one of the most unique, challenging and fun days of golf you'll have. Lots of Elevation change and a number of elevated pins. trash cans at many holes is also a plus, as park is very clean. Tyler is also host several tournaments a year, a number of them PDGA. Great Course. Great challenge. Best I've ever played.
Cons: Needs Permanent C Pins on holes 3, 8, 12, 15, 18, 23, 24, 27. (For starers) Wood pile blockades are getting redundant.
Other Thoughts: *11/16/14 update. Course is in transition and a bit of disarray. A lot of baskets replaced with PVC target poles, all holes renumbered and signage completely off. Hope this isn't for long
