Pros: Course is easy to find if you know the area, right off the service road of 67.
There are many different types of terrain, heavily wooded, lightly wooded, open, with some uphill and downhill as well.
The first 4 holes are unofficially called the gauntlet, and are a network of trails, short bridges, and crisscrossing the creek and it is a beautiful layout. Many of the other holes are appealing as well, good shade, some birds and squirrels around, and a little walking between holes.
If you have a tough time with the first 4 holes, there's a definite shift starting in hole 5 that gives some hope.
Maybe I have just come at the right times, but the course seems well maintained. Making the wooded holes tight seems to be management's choice not a lack of effort on anyone`s part.
The church has staff working on the course on Fridays and Saturdays (maybe other days but that is usually when I am there), but you're still free to use the course.
Hole 14 is great to get to essentially throw your longest driver as hard as you can and see what happens.
Hole 15 is a measuring stick for your game. A bogey is a major accomplishment.
Holes 17 and 18 give you a chance to end with low scores, if you can hit the elevated basket on 17 and miss the trees directly in front of you on 18.

Cons: No water or restrooms available on the course. There are a set of outdoor restrooms but they're locked. There are a couple of convenience stores nearby.
Again management's choice, but it's very easy to hit trees on the heavily wooded holes, and there is an element of luck in missing them..
A difficult course, if you want to boost your ego you are probably in the wrong place.
A fast putter isn't your friend here, as several holes have a drop off if you miss. On hole 2 the last time i played, I hit metal but the near miss rolled into the creek. To be fair, it was pretty funny especially to the other player.
As with most DFW courses, wind can be a factor on some of the holes.
Other Thoughts: This is a really fun course if you aren't worried about a great score.
Allow a couple of hours to play. It is not a course you can rush through.
You will always feel like there is room for improvement, due to the challenge of the course.

Pros: - pro level challenge
- true par 4s and a 5
- epic one-of-a-kind drives
- elevation shots
- variety: small gap, tight tunnel, long tunnel, downhill, bomb shot
Cons: - as a course on privately owned land, it's probably not as well maintained as a public course with this much quality...but other than a missing tee sign on 6, there were no major issues
- holes 5 and 13 were a little bland compared to the others
Other Thoughts: The amenities are average but the course itself amazing. I was blown away by holes 3,4,8,11,14,15, and 16. That's 7 signature holes on one course.

Pros: A couple of tight wooded holes
Some decent elevation change
Not busy or crowded
Cons: Short tees
Nothing points to next hole
Overlapping holes
Terrible signage
Other Thoughts: I probably expected too much from this course. 4 stars my foot, it isn't even close to A Bill Allen, Town Lake, Lake Lewisville, z boaz. Or the Cedar Hill courses. That being said it is a nice little shaded course, average. The course itself could use some maintenance. The tee pads are short, the signs suck, and some of the holes could use some trimming.

Holes 1-4 are nice, super short, Full of tress with super tight windows. There is a small creek in play.

The rest of the holes are pretty forgettable except 15. It has an OB road to the right and no clear path to the left or middle. I think the trees grew up and it needs some maintenance

Pros: -- Excellent use of land.
-- Course has a huge range of distances (some holes shorter than 200 feet with obstacles galore such as trees and water), and others longer than 700 feet but not necessarily wide open).
-- Concrete tee pads.
-- Good baskets.
-- Water is in play on holes 1-3 (4 would be a real stretch), but they are short enough to be birdie opportunities. Also, the water is generally shallow enough to make it easy to retrieve a disc once you get down to the water.
-- Holes 6, 13 and 14 are mostly long and wide open, especially off the tee, allowing you to crank a drive.
-- Trees are well used, requiring accuracy on most drives.
-- Uphill and downhill throws.
-- Course is seldom crowded.
-- Hole 15 is the signature hole. It is a 700-plus foot hole that starts with a flat, long, fairly narrow tunnel through trees and ends with a steep uphill shot. The basket is near the edge of a hill that drops off to an OB road/parking lot. And the basket is guarded by trees.
Cons: -- No restrooms or water.
-- Limited seating. A few tree stumps for an individual to sit, but that's about it. I seldom sit during a round, but this course is a beast, with several steep climbs, so seating would be appreciated by most folks.
-- No course map on site. The one posted here is hand-drawn but good.
-- Holes 1-3 and 9 are starting to get overgrown. The lines are definitely much tighter than when the course opened.
Other Thoughts: -- Likely the best 18 holes in DFW.
-- If you park behind the church, you can start on No 7 and have two chances to restock during the round. You'll come back to your car as you tee of on 12. There used to be a convenience store that backed up to the No. 17 tee, but it is now closed.

Pros: Good signage
Decent tees
Not busy, never have seen other players out here
Good mix of short woods holes and longer open holes
Cons: Close to a playing field and parking lot on a few holes, not sure I would play here on a Sunday when it is full ... Edit: no disc here until at least after 2PM on Sundays, which makes total sense.
Confusing layout on navigating to next hole a few times but not that bad
A few strangely laid out holes
Fairly flat
Other Thoughts: I learned about this course's existence VIA DGCoursereview several years ago. Lots of narrow fairways that require exact placement down tunnels in the woods. Several more open holes to allow for long drives. Not in my neighborhood but was worth the trip to go here for something different. I would play it more often if I lived closer.

 Good Shaded Course

Pros: Good variety of shots. Good tee pads. Good baskets. Good signage- relatively easy to navigate on first round (though I thought basket 8 was for hole 6 and the sign placement & direction on 7 made me think the drive was about 60 degrees to the right of where it actually is.) Loved the bridges, creek and greenery of 1-4. Lawn was mowed and plenty of trash cans and there was no trash at all on the course. Mostly treed which means wonderful shade and wind protection.
Cons: Holes 1-4 take "heavily wooded" to a new level. Each requires accurate shots plus a good bit of luck. (To a lesser extent, the same can be said for many of the other holes.) When you do find yourself in the rough, you have to contend with plenty of poison ivy. That said, with some trimming and removal of a handful of trees, the first 4 could be terrific. The course makes excellent use of the space they have, but much of hole 5 and almost all of hole 18 are over/on parking lots.
Other Thoughts: Many thanks to the church for making this available for public use! THANKS!!

There are several signs around the course "This course is on private property. You are welcome to play here, but DO NOT ALTER under any circumstance. NO PAINTING, NO TRIMMING, NO CUTTING. Continued abuse of the course will result in its removal." So enjoy it. It is a pretty good course, but the changes that would improve it to excellent probably aren't going to happen.

Pros: Great variety of holes. Creekside, wooded, open
Good concrete tee pads
Trash cans everywhere
Course is well maintained
Cons: Drives from holes 2 and 4 can cross causing a safety issue if the course is busy
Other Thoughts: This course is just a blast to play! Probably the best that I've played in south Dallas. It's pretty technical and challenging, but not so much as to make it frustrating.

 Very solid course

Pros: Wide variety of shots required
Multiple pin locations
Excellent tee signs and relatively easy navigation
Several dramatic tee shots
Good mix of big long holes and short birdie runs
Nice tee pads for the most part

-I liked the fact that on most of the big holes, there were nice shaped long lines, the par 4s were more than just long open shots.

-The creek on the opening 4 holes was a nice feature, if a bit frustrating to retrieve discs from.

-I liked the fact that the course really utilized 100% of the property, sometimes even going a bit too far in places.
Cons: A few of the open long field holes were bland.
Some of the holes come a little close to the surrounding houses and properties
I played the course in all longs and would have preferred a few more short-run holes, the back nine was a bit of a slog
A few holes were difficult to find
Other Thoughts: Overall, I really liked this course, it's very professional and well-maintained (aside from a bit of a trash problem on the forested sections). I like that it plays with a distinct feel on the opening 6, middle 6 and final 6, each hole also has a unique feel, without any significant repetition in shot type. If this course had a bit more wow factor on the back nine and a bit of better navigational signage this could be an even higher rating.
