 You Want Me To Skip It Off The Road, Again?

Pros: Of the three Lindsey Park courses, this is the one I would call the warm up course. This in no way means I am degrading it. This course has lots to offer. There is some good use of gradual elevation on a few of these holes. Many of these pin locations are either sunk into some woods or have OB very close to them. This makes the course rather difficult for being what could be called the easier of the three Lindsey courses. The slightly wooded holes are the holes I enjoyed the best. The "tombstone" tee markers do have the footage next to the short tees. The long and short tee pads are concrete for both. The trashcans and bathrooms are easily accessible to this course.
Cons: There are a couple of holes that do mimic each other and that can seem a little repetitive. There are 2 holes the have the basket close to the road and they are back to back. There is also a hole that you throw over the roads. I am not a fan of over use of roads to make a course difficult. Navigation is a bit tricky, so take the map.
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor was decent for me. I enjoyed half the holes on this course and found the other half just OK. This is a good course using this part of the park. Lindsey Park is without a doubt a great place for Disc Golf. Thanks Tyler, TX.

Pros: Good challenge, Good variation of left and right turns. A few tunnel holes, and they're a beast. This course has a lot of long, open shots, but then the pin is tucked 30 feet back in the woods. Get used to throwing a good drive, then an approach into the trees, then putting. This is a great course, has trash cans, benches, and good signage. Concrete teeboxes are nice, and there isn't much traffic on the course from non golfers
Cons: Not many honestly. This is a solid course, not too hard, not too easy. long walks between a couple holes, but not awful.
Other Thoughts: if you're new to DG head over to the roc or the front 9 at UT Tyler, if you want a challenge try this course. Drains well after a rain. Easiest of the three in the park.

Pros: Nice mix of open and wooded holes with some elevation changes. Hole 11 sits on a type of peninsula created by 2 ob roads. There are porta potties right there and better restrooms elsewhere in the park. Tees are concrete and there were 2 or more for every hole.
Cons: Not a lot of holes that just stand out in your mind as wonderful. Solid but not spectacular. Needs signs to point you to the 1st tee. There was a sign there but it had nothing on it. We went the wrong direction at 1st and were on the blue course which runs very close to the red at some points, they actually just about overlap. there was an old sign for #1 which we finally figured out was not in use anymore but it confused the situation for awhile.
Other Thoughts: Good course. I would certainly play there again. Having another 18 hole course on site is great also. They are getting another 18 holes there even as I write this. Most of the pins were in and they were getting busy with the tees. Soon there will be a full 54 holes there.

Pros: This park is a nice and challenging course. It has a nice variety of long open shots and a few short shots. The is a lot of elevation changes and some holes play almost in the woods. The tee pads are concrete and are in great shape, and the baskets are in decent condition. The course is kept clean and there are plenty of trash cans and benches to sit on. The layout of this course is nice the way it is set up and is very fun to play.
Cons: The navigation of the course can be a little complex at first, but from help of some locals, we was able to navigate the course.
Other Thoughts: If your looking for a good challenge, this is the one to play. This is a must play if your in the Tyler area.

Pros: Cool stone tee signs and good baskets. The elevation is used well for the little there is. Short course that is easier of the 2 in the park. There are lots of birdies here. There are 2 pads on all the holes which are cool as well. Sandy soil so I bet that it is good to play after a rain. Pretty clean and well taken care of too. I think that alot of the shots are the same although others have said different, but we all threw alot of the same shots on most of the holes.(At least from the red tees.) Cool having 36 in the same park.
Cons: The signage could be better, maybe a course map as well. We walked around alot trying to find where we were going. Some of the holes are in the open field when there seems to be alot of potential in the woods.
Other Thoughts: After hole 7 walk up the hill for 8. Cant wait to see the gold course go in. Lots of great potential for a city park.

To me more fun than blue but not as challenging

Pros: Almost no holes the same. Some very interesting basket locations especially 16 and I think 9. Several memorable shots even though most were easy. Most of the course seemed more secluded than the blue course, until you get to some of the open holes on the back 9. Most of the front 9 is pretty secluded and I think 15-17 also. Used elevation and woods as effectively as possible, considering this is a city park not a state park. Even though it was busy, it didn't feel like it and I only had to wait about 5 minutes total.

Cons: Some of the basket locations on the back 9 are right next to the park road. and 1 of them is an "island hole", in that it is in the median between the entrance and the exits of the red's parking lot. Not to mention 18's basket which is RIGHT next to the curb!! In my opinion when a basket sits next to a paved road, it adds an element of cheesiness as if you ran out of room when designing the course.
Other Thoughts: I can understand rating the blue higher. It is harder and longer. Besides that, I didn't think one really stood out over the other in my opinion. I guess with 54 holes in a city park, you will have to put in some holes "cram style" next to the road.

Pros: This is your typical disc golf course in a public park. Mainly straight holes with a few doglegs. A nicely moderately wooded course that makes it tricky but not too difficult. Like the use of trees to obscure some of the baskets. Each hole is rather unique and you don't feel like you are throwing the same teeshot over and over. Teepads are in great shape and the signs are decent. There are also the neat looking rock teesigns as well,nicely done. Multiple pins mix up the challenge.
Cons: Again, naviagtion and signage usage! Difficult to know where to throw or where to go. Mix of basket types. Can be rather busy on this course so you could always go over to the other courses and play if too bad. Some trash laying around despite the trash cans.
Other Thoughts: Nothing just jumps out at me about this course rather it is just solid all around. Popular course for a reason, well designed, keeps the interest and well liked. Holes 16 and 17 add a little bit more of a challenge. The course plays on a sandy type of soil that doesn't get too muddy that is able to be played shortly after a rain.

Pros: The easier of the two courses,still a fun course with slight elevation,Runs smoother then the longer blue course.
Cons: Some pretty easy par holes for your average disc golfer
Other Thoughts: Together these two courses are hard not to play back-to-back the locals must have alot of time on there hands.

Pros: This was a very fun and very challenging course. There are concrete tee pads on all holes and they provide the opportunity to choose between a short or a long, which I love. The long tees seemed to add quite a bit more length and challenge on the holes. Speaking from memory, it seemed that there were more open holes on the Red course than the Blue and that overall the holes were just slightly shorter. There were a lot of really fun shots on this course...through trees, over trees, long downhills, uphills, hyzer, anhyzer. You name the shot, there was an opportunity that allowed for it. The baskets are good and the course was in great shape. I really enjoyed playing here and will look forward to the next time I'm in Tyler to play again. The Red course was much easier to navigate than the Blue and since more people were playing the Red course it was easier to ask for directions if I did need help.
Cons: There aren't really an negatives that I can think of. There are more open holes on this course than on the Blue course, so that made part of the course a little more boring.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I think that I enjoyed the Blue course a little more, simply because it seemed a little more challenging. I played Blue first, then Red. Next time I'll reverse it and see if that has any effect on my opinion of the courses. I also played in heavy Texas heat, so these courses could have been even more enjoyable than they already were.

 Fun but confusing

Pros: Lots of fun, memorable holes - several that play along a tree line with the basket tucked back into the woods/rough. Some of the greens for these typs of holes are faily open, others VERY tight.

Elevation in play on many holes - used very creatively on some. A few hill-side greens to keep you on your toes when putting. Several holes have alternate baskets...but you'll have to get a local to show you these.

Several true par 4 holes...always a great thing!

Nice concrete tee pads on all and cool stone hole markers on most.
Cons: Course flow...plan on getting a little lost your first time through, unless you can find a local to show you around. The 2 courses in this park cross over and play next to each other in a few spots, so you have to really pay attention to what hole you're playing. Could use some better signage.

Each tee box has both blue and red text spray-painted on it...which makes the course flow even more confusing.

A few holes with unreasonably tough fairways or blind baskets that require you to walk almost the entire length of the hole to find. Some of these holes are actually really fun after you've played them once or twice, but are just frustrating the first time through.

Some holes have an OB creek in play, which can't be seen from the tee or even the middle of the fairway in come cases. If you think you see a depression in the ground ahead of you, go check it for water before throwing. Some of the creeks look small and shallow, but are actually fairly deep and pretty nasty.

Finally....sticker burrs ALL OVER the ground! Be careful when trying to kneel for a low-ceiling putt :)
Other Thoughts: If the course had better signage (showing an overview of the hole, and the direction to the next) and some maps available, this course would be among my favorites. From a design standpoint, 90% of the course is great, but there are a few very boring holes and some that need to be opened up / cleared out a bit. This is my favorite of the 2 courses at Lindsey park...nice mix of lines/lengths.
