 Decent course in beautiful area

Pros: Concrete tees, mowed fairways, beautiful location surrounding the lake.
Cons: Heavily wooded in some areas, most holes located behind groves of trees.
Other Thoughts: Overall a decent 18 hole course, located in a beautiful area in the Ozarks. Some holes are better suited for beginners, and some for more advanced players. I'd return here in the future.

Pros: Good scenery, right next to the lake. Good balance of wooded/open holes. A few more open than wooded. Hole 7 is awesome with trees on both sides throughout the 450 ft. hole. Concrete tee pads are in good condition. Signs are at most tees, but a few of them are knocked down or missing. Innova DisCatchers in fairly good condition. Navigation is easy. I found all 18 baskets and tees, but a few (13 and 7) are a little difficult to find.
Cons: No trash cans or benches (except a log or two). Hole 1 doesn't have a tee sign so it isn't as easy to find as it should be. Message board at the front of the course doesn't have very much information. A few holes (such as 1 and 12) seem overly wooded. I was asking myself if it was an actual hole. Some holes can get muddy. Some of the baskets have been signed (some of them because someone got a birdie(who signs for a birdie?)) and bikers/walkers can get in the way.
Other Thoughts: This course is very fun to play. I would definitely play this one again.

 Lavish Lakeside Resort Holes

Pros: This course has a nice variety of holes. There is a nice balance of open holes and wooded holes. The holes that are wooded and right along the lake are beautiful. The lake really doesn't come into play, but a really errant shot could find its way there. The paths in the wooded holes are very well defined and make that part of the navigation not that difficult. #12 is a heavily wooded hole that has 2 pin locations and they actually had a basket for each. The long location was a really nice difficult navigating route. #7 is a nice long tunnel shot that was also quite fun to tee off on. One hole even has a high route over trees, along way around them, or a small window you can try to throw through. Some of the wide-open holes have a tree or some simple obstacle to continue it being a challenge. Like I said, this course has some great variety. It has a real bathroom, trashcans, and good parking.
Cons: Navigation is a bit rough. Grab a guide or hook up with someone. Any map posted on this site before 2010 is no good for this course as the course has been updated since then. I hate repeating things, but the tee pads are horrible. Some of the pads are at their worst when they are with tree roots; not that the dirt ruts are much better. The tee signs are out dated and inaccurate. This park is also very busy with non-players. This park seems to have the need to be mowed a little more often than it is.
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor was really good here. There were a few holes that had little to offer, but many of the other holes made up for them. I would certainly like to come back here and play this course again. It was a real treat and even though the layout was confusing the first time, it is still fun to play. The lake is gorgeous and vegetation is really cool. It is worth a little road trip.

BTW, I just got a note from the president of NWADGC. He said that they will be getting concrete tee pads VERY soon (maybe next week). That is so exciting!

 Great Course

Pros: I Love this course it is fun to play and close to everything in Fayetteville. Great shade about half of the course. Most of the time their is now wind. Get a lot of players so you can find someone to show you around if you are new. Concrete are a new addition also new tee sign are comeing.
Cons: Sometime it gets thick with brush and some holes stay kinda of muddy. Walkers and joggers get in the way sometimes.
Other Thoughts: Needs more group info post on the board for activities. If you need a guide I am always up for a game. If you need more information jump on NWADGC.com there is a MAP of the holes.

Pros: Fun course. Nice mix of shots. Worth playing again.
Cons: It was muddy on most of the holes that were right next to the lake. The tees sucked.
Other Thoughts: I think that if this place doesn't get tees soon then there will be some crazy erosion problems around the existing "tee" areas.

Pros: - The course layout uses the potential of the park in a good way to create some challenging holes.
- The baskets are in a rather good condition.
- Hole #7 is one of the best holes I've played. Slightly downhill, and reasonably narrow, with a long, accurate and straight drive you will have the birdie chance.
-Good variety of open and wooded holes.
Cons: - Dirt tee pads.
- Could use some better signage, I had to ask some locals to find the first tee.
- Many walkers and bikers on the road through the park might hinder your play especially on hole #9
- Hole #12 (I think), by the lake was in my opinion far too narrow and far too close to the lake to even try it. I would think that alot of discs bounce off the trees and into the lake on that hole.

Pros: Great scenery. Plays on the north side of Lake Fayetteville. Half of the course is moderately wooded, while the other half is totally open. Course is very clean. Offers a good variety of shots, and a couple you need a pretty good pull to get to the basket for a bird. Discatcher baskets in pretty good shape.
Cons: Dirt tees. course crosses over itself, and some of the holes are difficult to navigate, especially trying to figure out which basket to throw at in a few places.
Other Thoughts: Nothing really special here as far as playability. A few holes make it a bit of a challenge, but no real epic holes or anything. It would get a better review with some concrete tees and some decent signs.

Pros: Much improved since they did a lot of work following an ice storm there winter 2008-2009. Nice mix of wooded open holes, rewards precision and punishes erratic throws. Enough reachable holes, never extremely busy, but there are always people playing. Overall a good fun course.
Cons: Very thick underbrush, easy to lose discs in the woods.
Other Thoughts: Overall a good fun course.

Pros: A decent layout with mostly all reacable holes. A nice mix of wooded holes and wide open hyzers. And now has concrete tee pads!!!! They are a sight of beauty.
Cons: Keep it in the fairway or ya may lose your disc the schule eats up some plastic. Water doesn't really come into play.
Other Thoughts: Its a nice challenging course but still needs some more TLC.

Pros: Plays around a man made lake in a well used park. There is a decent mix of shots as well as varied hole lengths. Brand new concrete tees trimmed with mulch are beautiful. Challenging without being too much work. Water fountains (for you and your dog) and restrooms are located right next to the course. Multiple pins on a few holes provide a little change from play to play.
Cons: There are teesigns, but they have little more than the hole number on them. Most are damaged or missing. The terrain is a bit overgrown and jungle-like in areas. This can make it tough to find your disc even if the shot was decent. The baskets are starting to show their age. They are still in decent shape, but are beginning to lean or are bent in areas. They used to be single chain, and somone added the inner chains to them. They do catch well though. Could use a few more trash cans, although there isn't a lot of trash on the course. A few trees could stand to be removed to make some of the holes less about luck and more about skill. The hole 12 long pin is really ridiculous. A lot of the little bushy trees near the short pin should be removed to make the long pin more playable. A few of the holes (8, 9 15, 16,) are wide open with just one tree between the tee and pin.
Other Thoughts: This is a decent course overall, but with a little work it could stand out more. A lot of the cedar trees on the course have been trimmed up, and the city has been mowing more of the course more often. Still needs a lot of trimming, but the way things are improving here it seems it will get done. This course does see a lot of traffic. It seems there is always someone out there. It is a shame that this is the ONLY course in Fayetteville.
