tree's a crowd
Pros: Oh My GOSH!!! What a spectacular course. I have played this course so much as of late. It is such a gorgeous course. When you first pull up, the initial thought is, " this can't be as good as people say it is. There is no way a church course can be that good". Those were my thoughts exactly until I stepped to hole one. WOW! ! Then to hole 2 then 3 and 4. All add something different. So tuff yet so beautiful. These first four holes make you have to concentrate, focus and hit your lines. It is so much more open since the first time I played 3 years ago. This course will make you better. No lie. You have to have every shot I your bag and if you do not it will force you to get every sgotin your bag. The signage is very good and the floww from hole to hole is very good. Before it was a little challenging to navigate but now it looks like the trees have been marked to tell you where the next hole is. I Also heard from one of the course designers, ATrain I think, that they were going to add new pin positions. I saw new tee box positions (dirt pads with flags) also which add another dynamic to the course.I love that it is always changing. You then get to hole 5 which is a nice hyzer shot. Its good because you come out of the gauntlet throwing putters and mids to an open area to let the bombs explode. Then you get to 6 par 4 . BOOM!! This is a hole that the 400+ ft throwers will love. 7 is a down hill putter ace run throw ALL DAY. Hole 8 is nice and tight tunnel for the first 200ft then it opens up. Hole 9 is a bute and another Ace runner. But if you miss that Ace your ACE is in trouble haha. You will be trying to rescue a par. 10 is sweet. A big S shot over the trees. You can be to the right in the open field, which is where I like to be, or you can throw something that will turn over slightly down the pipe. I have had several Eagle attempts on this hole. I will get it one day. 11 is a tuff 3. If you don't get down the middle past a few trees, then you will be trying to save a bogie. Hole 12 and 13 are nice birdie holes. They are good to get especially if you just come out of hole 11 with a bogey or double. I have done that many times. That hole is my nemisis but I will conquer it. Hole 14 is a signature hole in my opinion, well there are a couple on this course hole 15 being one of them. 14 is a crushers delight. Or anyone that can throw at least 300ft. Its that feeling you get when you see a mountain or a huge hill and wish you can just pull over on The side of the road while driving and walk to its highest point and throw ALL your discs. That's the way hole 14 makes me feel haha. 15 is a freaking spectacular, eye throbbing, nouth drooling beast. I'm not going to talk about it, you just have to come out and experience that one for yourself. 16 is intimidating and juicy at the same time. Hole 15 and 16 are game changers LITTERALLY. 17 is CONVENIENT no pun intended. There is convenient store right behind the tee box. I like to start on hole 7 because when I get to 17 I can get something to drink and eat and I STILL have 9 holes left. 18 is another intimidating hole. If you don't hit your gap right off the box, you will be looking for gaps TOO hit because youwill be in a world of trouble. Great hole when you peer the pipe sucky hole when you dont.
Cons: Need longer tee boxes on holes that are holes that you really need a run up on like hole 6 (nice paving stones and rocks to extend the box), 8, 10, 13, 14 , and 15. But that about it. I mean everyone has their opinions and I understand that there was a lot of work put into it and continues. Every one has a say so and wants to play a course but doesn't want to contribute. Well most dgers. I say that because I was one of those.
Other Thoughts: If you live far from the coursen you should plan out a day that you can come a play the course a couple times. First round is a practice round so you can have a feel of the course and second round is when you take that lunch money (if you are playing against ssomeone). This course is a treat that you deserve to taste.

let jesus take the wheel
Pros: The xroads is a great course that will challenge golfers of all skill levels, although beginners may find it too difficult. there is a good mix of holes out here, long open holes, tight fairways, lots of trees and some great elevation changes (hole 14) that make things interesting. hole 15 is a monster and really can make or break your round. ive taken an 8, if anyone gets a 3 pm me and ill buy you a beer! the park itself is very clean and usually mowed. there are also some alternate pin placements for added replayability.when the tees are in all longs this course is at its best. crowds have never been a problem the times ive been. also worth noting is that there is an opportunity to stop in and grab drinks food etc at a conviently located convient store by the teebox to hole 17. the funkytown flyers did a great job with several bridges scattered about .
Cons: as far as the actual disc golf is concerned the only con would be for beginners. this course isnt that hard but a certain skill level is required to have an enjoyable round. the course closed wednesday evenings and sunday mornings. it is on church property so during certain times on wednesday and sunday the course is unavailable. i prefer secluded courses and while there are parts of the course that are, the highway and other sidestreets are in view on most holes.
Other Thoughts: one of the "big Dogs" in the dfw metrolex. if youre going to drink a few beers keep them hidden. its a church, please show respect so the park will remain open(use trash cans). xroads is also located a mere 15 min drive away from 2 great courses, Cedar Hill and mt lebanon baptist encampment!

Well designed and challenging
Pros: The tee pads are big. The course flows quite well. Many risk/reward shots. This course will challenge all players.
Cons: Hole 5 - throwing over the parking lot with a mando.
Bushes within 10' of the basket on the fairway side should be removed - hole 4.
The fairways of 12, 13, and 14 need permanent OB lines to separate the fairways. I understand they draw these lines during tournament play.
Other Thoughts: This course is worth checking-out and is one of my favs in the DFW area.

Pros: Nice big tee boxes. Most of the holes had signs showing the hole lay out. The course has a good mix of long and short holes as well as up and down baskets.
Cons: Course doesn't flow very good from hole to hole. Most of the holes I found myself looking around trying to find the next tee box. Hole #9 is missing the sign with the layout of the hole.
Other Thoughts: Overall I really liked this course and would recommend it. Would play again.

Fantastic, but tough
Pros: Good mix of a few ultra longs and a lot of technical shots
Mostly Wooded, few open holes
Well kept, it had just been mowed and trimmed
We saw no other Frigoers or pedestrians to avoid
Signs on all the tee boxes, all cement
Cons: Needs a community post board sign thingy
Sooo many trees
Lil bit tough to navigate
Traffic on 67 sucks
Other Thoughts: Definitely worth the drive to go check it out, great course.
Good design, challenges you on all levels

Pros: -It is extremely diverse in the sense that there are many heavily wooded shots and plenty of opportunities for wide open drives!
-The lengths fluctuate throughout the course but overall they lengthen as the course continues. (Starting in the 200-300 range and making it up to nearly 800).
-The elevation is nothing crazy but there are plenty of uphill drives as well as some long drives from some form of elevated landing.
-It is very challenging.
-It has some really cool nature elements within the woods.
Cons: -There are a few holes that are hard to find if you are not familiar with the course. For instance, the first time I played I didn't even find hole one's tee pad (it's down some stairs on the left side of the church)
-Some of the brush on a few holes are filled with thorns so you're going to want to stay out of those.
-Cars may come through parts of the course because there is a road that cycles through, but this is very minimal and I haven't ever experienced any real problem in this area.
Other Thoughts: This is one of my favorite courses in the metroplex! REAL FUN.

Pros: A course with a lot of variety. The first few holes are short technical holes with a creek winding around. You get into some of your more standard holes, with a few really long ones thrown in (one near 600' and two over 700'). Hole 15 is a par 5 700'+ hole through the trees, and is one of the most intimidating holes I've seen.
Cons: This is not a beginner friendly course, don't let the fact it's on church property fool you. The early holes having newbies bouncing off trees or fishing in the creek. The long holes can really wear you down. Hole 5 throws across the parking lot, which really seems like a bad idea. Two hole (7 and 12) use a sidewalk/loading bay for the gym as the teepad. If some activities are going on (Not the regular Sun & Wed services, but socials and the like) there can be people or vehicles all over the teepad. I've never had to throw with a truck on the teepad before.
Other Thoughts: As I mentioned earlier, closed Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings to avoid conflcts with the church services. Also take note that at least one of the neighboring houses has a sign up telling you not to trespass. It was very clearly put there in reference to disc golfers.

Pros: This is one of my favorite courses to play on. The first five holes will either make you or break you. The course runs with the stream pretty nicely on the first couple. Two is one of my favorite holes is you have a straight shot. Hole #6 is a long hole that stretches across a field entering back in the woods. Hole #7 is my favorite hole but can be a disaster if you hit any of the closer in trees or release to high. The next three pretty difficult but definitely manageable. Hole 12 shoots across another field and over an old volleyball court. Hole 14 is killer unless you can really rip into a deep shot. 15 is also dry difficult but the 2 following are relatively easy.
Cons: It is a difficult course. Very minor things that have been resolved. On some holes it is very easy to lose sight of your disc and lose it. The water hazard is usually shallow but can get annoying if it just raine

Hard isn't always good
Pros: Any disc golf course is a good thing. Gives the youth ay the church an activity on church property.
Cons: Strange out of bounds lines, blind shots. A lot of the shots are set up for a RHBH player.
Other Thoughts: The course seems to favor a RHBH player. A few holes are pretty tricky for a right hand side arm thrower and the left handed player to birdie. I personally prefer a nice mix to level the playing field for everyone. There are some really fun holes! If you are a RHBH player and can throw 400'+ you will probably love the church course. I recommend everyone to try it and come up with their own opinion. New pin positions shorten some holes and made a nice change to the existing course.

Fun and challenging
Pros: The course plays through mostly heavily wooded property with a few open field areas. A handful of longer holes out in the open provide a nice contrast to the technical tighter portions of the course. The rough throughout the woods is thick enough that you'll definitely pay for errant shots. Some elevation comes into play, with a couple fun downhill shots and some tricky greens.
You'll need a good variety of line shaping skills to score well here, with a nice balance of left and right turning holes. A few of the shots call for creative s-curves and other interesting lines. The distance variety is decent, with some ace run chances and some longer multi-shot holes.
The tees are a little on the small side, but the concrete is in good shape with fine grip. The baskets are new and in great condition. The signs are nice with distance and hole layout along with direction to the next tee.
Cons: A couple holes play over roads and parking lots, definitely a potential safety issue and one that could be avoided here. A volleyball court and baseball field also come into play, hopefully players are considerate enough not to throw over or through other activities. Several spots have multiple baskets in the same area, which is not only confusing for navigating the course, but could be a safety concern with multiple groups on the course.
The rough is thick enough in many areas that it requires just a pitch out rather than offering chances for creative recovery shots. A couple holes run parallel to open areas, making the easiest line somewhere other than the fairway.
Other Thoughts: I had fun here, and would definitely recommend a stop if you want an interesting challenge. Beginners might find it a little tight and punitive, and the longer holes could be a bit daunting. More experienced players will find some nice tests of different skills.
