Worlds most dangerous hole
Pros: All 6 holes have a 4x4 marking the tee, sign on #1 was missing
Some fun shots
Cons: Can't play some of the holes if kids are present
Worlds most Dangerous hole described below
Other Thoughts: A 6 hole course is better than no course at all, they should be made for beginners specially when near a school.
With the exception of hole 1, this course pretty much fits the bill.
I started play in #5 because it is the closest tee to the parking area, but if I were to play here again, I would park near #3 basket to play regularly.
#1 no sign, but the post is still there. Very long hole playing down the soccer field. Great for me and my roller, I was putting for a 2. Only tree was near the tee box
#2 wide open shot throwing down a drainage ditch. Elevated basket above the culvert. There is a danger of throwing a shot into the backyards on this hole.
#3 WORLDS MOST DANGEROUS HOLE. Ok, first, the tee marker is right behind a tree and the ONLY shot is on the right hand side throwing under low branches with a smaller tree I smacked right in front of you 30 ft out. The fence line marks the right hand side of the fairway. If you throw it high enough, you will turn it over into the backyards. There is a walking path that comes into the fairway about 50ft from the tee on the left and goes down the fence line, around the exercise equipment and then crosses back across in front of the basket. I had to wait for a mother and stroller to walk all the way down past the basket before I could throw. BANG, I hit that tree right in front of the tee and it bounced against the fence. As I am getting ready to throw my 2nd shot, POP, a mother with kid in tow pops out from the fence line. You can't see it from the tee, but there is a sidewalk in the fence line that comes out about 100 ft from the tee. I almost threw before they popped out. I might have hit her right in the side of the head with my drive at full speed if she had walked out a few seconds later. So while I wait the few min for her to walk down past the basket, BANG, another one walks out from between the fences. At this point, I walked down to the opening, waited for them to get out of the way, then saw their was no one else coming and then threw my 2nd shot OVER the exercise equipment and under the basket.
So not only do you have the walking path crossing in front of the tee, then back across in front of the basket, but you have the exercise equipment right in the middle of the fairway and that hidden opening in the fence line. Makes the shots over the fence seem harmless at this point.
#4 is a turnover shot around the edge of the tennis courts.
#5 short ace run with a tree blocking shots that are too high.
#6 best hole on the course, HUGE anhyzer is the best shot, however, this hole is right next to the basket ball court for the school, if kids are present, you will not be able to play this hole.

Pros: -nice baskets
-good practice course
-perfect for beginners and kids
-decent park, nice playground
-little chance of losing a disc, practically no rough
Cons: -no sign/tee for hole 1
-only 6 holes
-plays too close to playground, tennis courts, other areas that may be filled with children or park goers.
-pretty much wide open, almost no obstacles
-may be unavailable during school hours
Other Thoughts: This little practice course is right next to an elementary school. It is perfect for introducing kids or new players to the game but not for much else. Way too easy for all but beginners.
The course plays mostly around the edge of the park/playground and is mostly wide open. Slight downhill off the first tee, avoid the small creek and drain pipe on hole 2. Playground near basket 3, tennis courts in 4's fairway, a few small trees in the fairways of 5 and 6. Minor obstacles but mostly just interference from other park amenities. There are actually a good number of trees on right side of 6's fairway so a good anny is required for a duece.
Convenient for anyone who might live nearby, a quick stop for course baggers, and good for newbies. Otherwise, there are better places to play in College Station.

Great for teaching kids how to play - but not for much else.
Pros: The course is laid out on a wide swath of land perfect for breaking in new disc or practicing putting and approach shots. Tiffany Park is set up well for families, with playground equipment, tennis courts, and a basketball pavilion. Another plus is you won't have to worry about other disc golfers getting in the way of your practice, since no one who lives more than a few miles from here will probably want to play it more than once. Bottom line, I would come here with my wife and small kids for fun, but never for a serious round.
BEST HOLE/S: #2
Cons: It's always sad to start your main pros with "good for practice" and "has a nice playground." Unfortunately, I can't find much else too redeeming about this place. The layout is poor and boring. The lines run too close to park equipment, or in the case of #4 - over the tennis courts for most players looking to bird. You have a real chance of hitting someone if this place is every busy.
There are only six holes that intertwine with a walking path in the first half, the baskets are single chain, and the signage (at least this is some on holes 1-5) is average. Hole #1 currently has no tee marker, so I just made up my own. Finally, you may have difficulties getting in a round during school hours because of the proximity to the school.
WORST HOLE/S: #4
I don't know why this is considered a park - it seems like more of a playground extension than anything. It's appropriate since it's Tiffany Park's best quality - giving families, kids, & elementary students access to learn to play disc golf. Much like Cedar Brook Elementary School
in Houston, it's rudimentary & potently dangerous layout is is not suited to anyone who is halfway decent at the sport. Play it for practice then move on to better courses in the area.
Having finally played all of the current courses the Bryan/College Station area has to offer, I have made two separate lists for you to consider when making your next visit to Aggieland. I have ranked them first by overall course quality and then my personal enjoyment rating which varies a bit from the first list. Please note however, I enjoyed all of these courses, and none of them stood out as the clear favorite.
Course Rating and Quality:
1. Research Park
2. Southern Oaks Park
3. Wolf Pen Creek
4. Austin's Colony
5. Oaks Park
6. Bonham Park
7. First Baptist Bryan DGC
8. Tiffany Park 1.
Personal Enjoyment: (1 is best & 5 is worst)
1. Southern Oaks Park
2. Wolf Pen Creek;
3. Research Park;
4. Oaks Park;
5. Bonham Park;
6. Austin's Colony
7. First Baptist Bryan DGC
8. Tiffany Park
