Open and well maintained!

Pros: Nice 18 holes in an open park. The course seems to be well maintained. Oversized teepads. Quality baskets with arrows to the next tee. The fairways are well maintained and rough is just enough to make you pay if you miss your line.
Cons: The course would be better if each hole had a hole layout at each teepad. Sadly the course would be better with more trees. A little confusing trying to find the next tee. Completely missed hole 3, didn't realize it doglegged so hard left.
Other Thoughts: Overall a fun 18 hole course. Great course to work on shots in the wind. Course is pretty wide open to practice windy shots.

The Pinnacle of Average Courses

Pros: The course is on a very well maintained piece of land. There is a lot of room for the course, with none of the holes really throwing on top of each other.

Navigation was not a problem. The tees were all very well marked with small but adequate concrete tee pads.

The course has an ok variety of distances. The few trees that are thrown throughout the course provide some extra challenge on an otherwise challenge-less course. The creek that comes into play at the beginning and end of the course does add the most challenge on the entire course. Hole 17 was an especially challenging hole where you need to decide from the tee if you want to lay up or go over the creek.
Cons: This might be the most average course I have ever played. No holes to me stuck out as good holes. With the lack of trees and obstacles, most holes felt exactly the same. Unfortunately, this course is not really a birdie fest that you would expect at a course with a lack of obstacles. The distances are mostly too long for an average golfer to put a string of "2"s together, so it takes a bit of the fun away

I had to wait a few times for a runner to run on the path that does cross multiple holes. Be careful and mindful for joggers. From what I could see, the course and park is not utilized too much, but it still is something to consider.
Other Thoughts: This is the most average round of disc gold you will ever play. From reading the other reviews, this course went from bad to average, so that is a plus. There is very little risk to lose a disc, very few people so it may appeal to certain folks.

I have not played too much within the DFW area, but I am confident there are much better places to play than what this course offers.

Pros: tee markers help navigate.
good use of the land with little elevation.
empty park, both times I've played i was the only one out on the course.
Cons: Teepads are too short.
pretty wide open but with some fun holes where water comes into play.
Other Thoughts: i live close so i enjoy it, wouldn't suggest someone to drive across the metroplex for it
It's a great course for a feel good round or work on your game.

no longer a pitch and putt

Pros: Cement tee pads
Tee signs marking hole number and distance
good use of what elevation is out there and what few trees are out there
On top of every basket but one (missing) is a direction marker pointing to the next tee.
Cons: Flow gets confusing in a few spots
Not enough tree's to make this course interesting
I think the tee pads were wider than they were long. It sure felt that way.
Other Thoughts: I played this course last on 1/12/10 and my last remark was "this is one of the courses that I have now played and will never play again"

MUCH improvement on the new course, they lengthened the course and use more of the park than before. The tree's have grown a little in the last 6 years, but still don't come into play as much as you want.

So this is still a pretty much wide open course with a few holes that you need to watch out for throwing into the creek.

If it were not for the direction markers on top of every basket, (one is missing) this course would be very hard to follow in a few spots.

Pros: This course is great for beginners and pros alike. Whether you're working on mid/long range accuracy or just feel like tossing a putter, it's good for both. Every hole is drivable (for me) so it's not exactly difficult, which lends itself to the fun side of disc golf.
Cons: Not many trees or much elevation. Course is layed out on a long downhill slope with a small creek running through the middle.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course to throw a relaxing round. Whether you're new to the sport or a seasond veteran, you can have a great time and shoot a better-than-average score here. Also, it's a great night golf course due to the open layout and scarce dense obstacles.

 Nice above basic course

Pros: For me it's close and is always interesting enough to want to play again.
Cons: Hole1 could make you hit a car if your a newbie and not ready for the wind. Lots of walkers, runners etc. Have to wait to throw. Took us almost 2 hours to play with just 2 people. Wind is almost always a factor.
Other Thoughts: Played there 9/10/14, the creeks are mostly dry but did run into a few water snakes when we went to retrieve errant discs. The grass was cut very short and the dirt was hard so discs would catch and roll sometimes with a lot of help from the wind.

 Good Practice Course

1    1/25/2014   1/27/2014
Review By: CantThrowStraight
Played: 35  Reviewed: 2  Exp: 4.6 Years
Pros: Good open area for long shots and lots of holes to throw hard on.
Cons: Not enough obstacle to be a course. There are some small bushes around and water along most of the course. The creek that runs through is very shallow and not wide, so it's not too hard to deal with. This park has too much public use to have a DG course on it. There are kids everywhere and adults walking slow everywhere. Kids picked up my disc twice to start running off and playing with them.
Other Thoughts: This course is great to practice on during the week as I assume it has less people there. Don't go on nice weekends. It's packed!

 nothing special

Pros: *concrete pads (reverse in typical direction)
*signage arrows
*flow well
*a few really good holes placement along creek for challenge.
*18 hole course
Cons: *routine, nothing special really. each hole is a 300 foot throw in a field with a few trees.
*tee signs could help explain directions of throws. most were logical, but a couple had two baskets in close proximity.
*it weaves in and out of a heavily used walking track. I had to wait on almost every other hole to let a walker, kid on a bike, or random kid running to throw. I dont mind having to wait once or twice, but it gets to a point that its annoying
*no trademark hole
Other Thoughts: hole 2 was one of the best designed holes, dont know if it was just accidental today or not. First time playing and some of the locals told me watch out as the water has not drained. It played like an island with water on both sides. I am assuming they meant there was normally not water around the right of hole. but it still made for a great hole

if the course wasnt in the DFW area, maybe the course would rate higher, but there are so many great courses in this area. I dont see myself making another trip out there.

 good redesign

Pros: -redesign makes great use of the land features around the park
-a few of the new holes make use of the elevation
-new holes make really good use of the creek
-nice discatchers with directional arrows to next tee
-nice concrete pads, but a little short
-good variety of distances
-well-thought pin positions
-navigation is intuitive and easy
-playground for the kiddos
-still planting new trees but the one they planted 4 or 5 years ago still aren't really growing. could be awhile before that is ever a factor
Cons: -never a day without wind at this course, deal with it
-pedestrians on the foot path, roaming children
-still a lot of wide open holes
-very muddy after a rain
Other Thoughts: This course really benefits from the redesign. The new holes make great use of the land features with 2 holes making use of the hill and several holes playing alongside the creek. I also like that they ditched the 3 pads per hole and focused on making one well-designed tee location.

The layout is fairly challenging with lots of distance, water hazards, and the wind. Big arms can score well but the combination of the water and wind will make you think twice on some shots.

This course used to be pretty forgettable but the new layout is fun and a challenge. I'd say it is worth the drive to come check it out. It certainly doesn't compare to many of the great courses around the metroplex but for a change of pace, the course is definitely worth playing.

Pros: -Extremely clean and beautiful course
-Great flow from hole to hole, easy to navigate
-Maintained on a weekly basis
-Discatcher baskets with directional arrows pointing to next tee pad
-Good mix of distance hole to hole
-Nice neighborhood and friendly local players
-Tee boxes are short but they are laid in the ground allowing for a smooth run/walk up
-Great practice course, nothing too challenging but will get better as the newly planted trees grow in.

Cons: -Not many, course is in a public park so there can be foot traffic on the sidewalks thorughout the course; however, the community is very nice and the people are more than happy to wait or watch you throw.
-Not too much shade so it will get hot, bring plenty of water in the Texas summer
-Gets sloppy after rain, which coupled with the shorter tee boxes can cause some slipping issues, just stay away when wet or after rain.
-shot selection is minimal, you can pretty much throw a hyzer on every hole, but this makes for great fieldwork and practice, its open enough to chose what type of throw you want to make
Other Thoughts: -If you have trouble navigating the course then its your own fault, there are signs on each basket pointing to the next tee box.
-if you have trouble with the tee boxes than you probably need to slow down your walk/run up anyways
-This course is probably the most aesthetic course in DFW, its absolutely beautiful, well kept and great for field work
-If you haven't played this course it is worth the drive to play if your looking good practice
