Pros: - Well manicured and kept up.
- Some great throws for us forehanders.
- Hole 1, 2, and 3 are wide open.
- Hole 2 is custom made for forehand.
- Holes 4, 5, and 7 are heavily wooded for good technical throws.
- Great course to play in the summer as it is VERY shaded.
- One of my favorites (it is local for me... so that helps!)
Cons: - Hole 5 runs parallel to a cloudy creek the entire way. Creek isn't too deep, but cloudy as sin so you will lose it easily.
Other Thoughts: - Short course (9 holes), so we usually play it twice.
- Great playground and splash pad at this park if the wife and kids need something to do while you throw!

 Technical Course, Good Practice Course

Pros: -Good Combo of all shots; RHBH,RHFH,Tomahawk/thumber.

-All baskets have numbers, all tee-pads are concrete, and have easy to read signage

-Course is very well maintained. Very clean

-Water hazard on almost 50% of the course, so good practice for your mental game

-Kids park+splash pad close by, for your family to go to while your playing
Cons: -(In My Opinion) hole 4 has WAY too many trees on the left, electric fence on the right... a little too challenging unless you are a Grandmaster (SUGGESTION cut down a few trees on the left, and place them on the creeks edge, to prevent discs from skipping in)

-At certain times, there can be alot of cross-traffic on the course, since there is a park there.
Other Thoughts: This course is really good in having you practice certain techniques, and can help out your overall game. Also since it is a 9 hole, its a quick course.

I will keep coming out here, it's so close to mansfield, and its low impact on my legs, 2 plus' in my book

plus Mondays around 6 pm they do a mini, which is fun!

 Fun 9 holes

Pros: Good for beginners, concrete tees, very well kept park
Cons: -Only 9 holes, although that's ok, not everything can be 18.
-Water, especially right now with all the rain. I lost a disc to the creek off tee 5, and there are 3-4 holes where it is REALLY easy to lose a disc with one poor shot.
Other Thoughts: This course is super close to my home, so I am able to get in a round after work a couple times a week. It's never too crowded in the afternoons, and is at a really nice park for bigger events. I've only been playing a couple months and I didn't feel overwhelmed playing this course.

Pros: Sonora is the only 9 holer I've ever driven an hour to play again. It is perfect in many ways. Sonora is almost completely shaded on 8 out of 9 holes with a winding creek that will come back to haunt you if drives, approaches and putts are not on point. Nice concrete tees, accurate signs and intelligent use of land make for an experience that leaves you wanting another round as you realize you are sadly nearly done with the 9 holes Sonora offers. The course is extremely easy to find and is located in a well manicured, modern park. The grounds are immaculate and baskets are in good shape.
Cons: There are only 9 holes?

Like many other courses that share space, Sonora may have non golfers in fairways.

Other Thoughts: Sonoras minis (Monday) are year around and include night rounds.

Locals are talking of a soon to come back 9!

Gates are locked by city at 10pm

Course very balanced. May have a rare RHFH / LHBH bias...

Pros: Tight lines. Good use of trees and creeks. Some great choices for risk reward. Concrete tee pads. Some elevation. Good maintenance.
Cons: Only 9 holes (play it twice). Some pedestrian traffic. Somewhat short (Pro and Con)
Other Thoughts: Accuracy is the key to score well here. You can open up on hole one since it is longer and an elevated tee pad. Most of your other shots will require some accuracy, and a lot of accuracy on a couple of holes. If you hit your lines well you will have several opportunities at an ace. This course length wise might be good for new players but they will be extremely frustrated with the trees and creek.
I would consider this one of the best 9 holes I have played. Should be more well known in the DFW disc golf community.

 Not Easy!

- Tight, challenging lines
- Good practice for accuracy, shot shaping
- Concrete teepads
- Not difficult to navigate
- Heavily wooded, shaded
- Peaceful rural setting, with duck pond, horses and cows
- Multi-use park with other facilities
- Only 9 holes
- Pedestrian cross-traffic
- Little elevation change
Other Thoughts:
Contrary to other reviews, this would not be a great beginner's course. It's not long, but the lines are very tight. You can leave your distance drivers at home, but don't assume you're going to get a lot of easy birdies.

 Sweet Little Course With a Mean Streak

Pros: Never knew about this course from all the posts on DFW disc golf, and that is a shame. Its a fun nine-hole course that offers some challenges that can bite your butt. Found it when seeking a course near our motel in Mansfield last weekend. It is in a well-maintained park. The course is pretty, offers a variety of shots and elevation, and is shady. There is a splash pad for kids in the park, water and rest rooms close. The course itself is very compact.Other reviewers have described each hole, so I won't go there except to comment.For me 1, 2, 8, and 9 are pretty routine. Trees and crossing a creek are the challenges for 2, 8, and 9. 3 and 5 are fair and use elevation and trees well. 4, 6, and 7 presented me with problems because of the tight fairways, electric fence, and creek. 3 leaves you with a downhill putt if your approach is short. 4 has a very tight corridor to throw straight to the hole or a pray and loop an annie to get there. The left side sidewalk on 7 is tough for a fade. There was only mud in the creek, but it is soft and 4 inches deep if you need to go get a disc. lol. The course is easy to get to, tees are new concrete and well-marked The Chainstar baskets are nice, and the use of terrain is commendable.
Cons: I think better lines could be created by moving some of the baskets. A few holes leave you wondering what a good line is, but if I played Sonora a few more times that would work itself out for my skills. The electric fence on 4 gets in your head, so beware. Walkers are out on the sidewalks that run through some of the course, but they were friendly and one even wanted to throw a tee shot.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed the course, and I will play it again someday, even though 4 and 6 took a bite out of my rear. The parking is good. Sonora offers a bit of most shots in a nine hole course, and that is hard. You cannot score here without accuracy. Use the DGCR map and you will have no problems navigating. Again, the course is two years old, and I suspect not many DFW disc golfers know about it. I really think if you go play it a few times one day, you won't regret that choice.

Pros: All of the tee boxes are marked. Baskets are very nice and show the hole number on each basket.
Cons: Cant say any really bad other than the grass needs to be cut and some trash picked up. But other than that the course plays very good.
Other Thoughts: Good course to practice your short game.

 fun 9 holes

Pros: -fun and challenging holes
-lots of trees and a creek in play
-uses the slight elevation well
-nice baskets and adequate signs
-little underbrush, looks like most of the poison ivy has been neutralized
-decent parking
-NEW concrete tee pads
Cons: -can get quite muddy after a bit of rain
-possibly a bit too challenging for the beginner, too bad for a 9 hole course in a smaller town.
Other Thoughts:
The new concrete pads are in and they are great. The new location for tee 1 back by the pond is cool too. Gives a bit of elevation to the tee shot. The course looks great but some of the poison ivy may be returning.

This is a pretty fun and rather challenging 9 hole course. Most of the holes have a significant number of trees and a bad kick can leave you in the creek, over the OB fence, or with no upshot. Not a lot of easy hyzers, you have to carve your line through the obstacles.

I can't imagine the course ever being crowded. If it were, there are a few close fairways and the entire area of the course is not that big. Still shouldn't be a problem though since you probably won't be just trying to bomb it on these holes.

Another course well worth playing in Ft. Worth. Not a destination but certainly worth it if you are in the area.
