Beautiful park with a fun but front-heavy course

Pros:
-fairly nice wooded golf in a very nice park
-good shot variety with a few longer shots around 350', but also lots of wooded holes in the mid to low 200' range
-good concrete tees and good baskets
-course in good shape overall, with most tees numbered and with logical course flow
Cons:
-a few too many short holes for a course of this caliber (six under 200', and hole 14 feels even shorter in person than the 146' recorded on DGCR)
-navigation is a bit tricky in spots, and the current DGCR map is not accurate (unless my map reading ability is much worse than I currently think it is)
Other Thoughts: This has some added distance that makes Moose Run more fun (and more difficult) than the Original course. There's nothing super long, but the few 350' to 400' holes mean you'll have to break out some distance throws. Most of those longer shots have treed fairways that require extra line planning and execution, but one is pretty open. Holes 1 and 4 have elevated baskets, which are a nice touch. Really, this is a fun course. I found the first twelve holes the most fun, since the last six holes started to seem a little too short when played sequentially. Nevertheless, some of the course's short holes were also a blast due to fun lines, such as hole 8 (I got a cubby "ace" with a perfect Comet turnover after missing the line on my first attempt), hole 9 (a shorty but with a challenging hard dog-leg to the right), and hole 10 (with some guardian trees and a slope up to the basket).

Overall, the course is very fun and I enjoyed a quick, smooth, relaxing round. Since the short holes are quick to play, and 11's basket is relatively close to the beginning of the course, it would be easy to make it back through the front holes if you felt the need to work your distance game more.

As far as the park itself, this was one of the nicer parks I've been to in Tulsa. It's just south of the river and has enough elevation that you get some nice views of the city. I wasn't there during an extremely busy time, so parking was no issue and I only encountered a couple non disc golfers. I didn't have problems with folks venturing into my throwing lines, but there are some picnic tables toward the end of the course so I'm sure that's an issue at busier times.

Rating: I'm going with 3.5 "very good" but can also understand why some have rated it lower. The park is nice, and the course starts very strong. Nevertheless, the holes get a little too short toward the end even if the golf stays fairly fun.

Pros: Tight technical shots. Lots of trees to maneuver.
Cons: Almost all of the shots are technical, so there isn't much variety throughout the the course. I've played many times when there have been family gatherings in the way of a few holes.
Other Thoughts: This course is far better than it's older counter part in the same park. Better to me because the difficulty goes way up.

Pros:
Chandler Park appears to be a pretty popular destination as evidenced by the number of players on the course. This particular Saturday was pretty cold and a little windy. I imagine a warm spring day may be a bit crowded. Moose Run is a fairly open park course scattered amongst the trees with easy to choose lines and few holes that will test your arm. This is a short course with most holes only around 200' which translates into a plethora of ace runs, many of which have been successfully aced and declared on the backs of the tee signs with names and dates.
The navigation is easy, with signs for every hole (except the last four) sporting all the necessary information. All the tee pads are concrete although some of them were still a bit muddy after the rain two days before.
I felt like I went through plenty of shot variety and was challenged enough to make the game enjoyable.

Cons:
About the only thing I would add to the course is some trash cans and some benches so an old and tired discer like me could have a seat now and then. The course as a whole is showing a little wear and tear and could use a little maintenance, but not so much that it detracts from the game. Currently, though, the last four holes appear to be missing tees. I think this is a temporary condition due to some work being done in the park, but I couldn't say with certainty.

Other Thoughts:
Some may consider the less than championship caliber of play this course demands to be a con, but I for one don't feel that every course should be a Pebble Beach of Disc Golf. I played this and her sister course near the end of a very long day of course bagging through Tulsa and thoroughly enjoyed these rounds without being beaten down physically by the course. Chandler Park's Moose Run and the Original course both had nearly everything needed for a great round of Disc Golf.
