No Clue How This Isn't Rated Higher
0 Helpful / 3 Not
Pros: Variety. Long holes, short holes, long and open, long through trees, short through the trees, lots of elevation changes, water hazards, you name it and this has it.
And the holes are almost all interesting. 17 and 18 are boring. (Pro tip - park in the west parking lot and start on 16, you'll get these out of the way first!)
Cons: Puts the rest of the courses in town to shame and makes me question why far over half my disc golf plays are at the same place.
Other Thoughts: A lot of the reviews in here have weird cons or no cons listed yet a 3 or 4 star rating. What?! No, this isn't that sketchy a part of town. I'm guessing a lot of the reviewers saying this are those who tend to keep to the "rich" side of town. I wouldn't play there at night (why would you do this anyway?), but I have no concerns whatsoever playing there during the day.
It's bizarre people are clamoring for more variety when every other course in Tulsa has maybe three different types of throws. And complaining about water hazards? The creek is shallow and it's used VERY well as a hazard. You could get a disc that floats if you're that worried.
This is easily the best course in Tulsa, hands down. I've played it dozens of times and there's a reason I keep coming back.

The best in Tulsa..could be.
1 Helpful / 3 Not
Pros: One of the best courses in town.
Great concrete tee pads and baskets.
Variety- trees, shallow creek, obstacles come into play.
Benches, trash cans available.
Cons: No cons.
Other Thoughts: Pure joy playing this course. You will use everything in your bag. One of the best courses (if not the best) course in town.
I would not take a newbie here...take them to Chandler park to get some time in, then take them to this course.

Pros: Large variety of throws, hole lengths, terrain, etc. Challenging, generally well groomed.
Cons: homeless people abound and the water hazards can ruin your game. (lol)
Other Thoughts: McClure is definitely in my top 3 courses in Tulsa, I would definitely recommend playing it.

One of my favorites
Pros: This is a great Tulsa course with a nice mix of different hole styles.
Every hole offers some sort of challenge whether it is a blind tee shot, a perilous throw along/across the creek or a crazy long tee shot.
There is a practice hole in the parking lot. It's not close to the start of course, but it is in the middle a quite a few old growth trees so it offers shade at almost any point of the day.
Cons: The final hole in my opinion is too long. I am a decent thrower and it takes all that I can to get within 75ft after 2 shots. By the 18th hole your arm is tired and I would prefer something more technical and less guns blazing toward the end of the course.
--- updated --- They have shortened this hole up to where it is much easier to get to the basket in a couple shots.
Other Thoughts: I am always pretty worn-out by the end of this long course. Definitely a challenge and reminds me that I have room to improve my game.

Among the best
Pros: Great variety and safe conditions. Manicured lawns and a lot of variety. Several distance holes and a few short challenges.
Cons: I can't think of any, other than that I miss some of the old holes, before the park was reorganized.
Other Thoughts: This was the 1985 World Championship final round course, I walked with champion, Harold Duvall (cofounder of Innova) that day. His discs were the top in the game.

Great Flowing Course
Pros: As the title says, this course flows very well, especially the longer you play it. The rolling hills of McClure are a great change of pace from most of the flat courses in Tulsa. Playing alongside the creek makes a lot of shots very risk/reward with the added benefit that the creek is very shallow and easy to retrieve discs from. There is nice hole distance variety, even though all the holes are par 3's.
Cons: This course is a bit overrated in my mind. After playing Redhawk, Blackhawk, Hunter, and Haikey, I don't think this is better than them all, as the overall rating indicates (other than Blackhawk). Hunter and Blackhawk are superior to this course. This course does not offer enough variety. I am a RHFH player, but there are too many flick holes in my opinion, at least relative to backhand holes. There is a big gap in length of holes, but a lot of the holes are all about 320. This course doesn't play through as many trees as one would like to see a shorter course play through.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun hole, but not one of the best in Tulsa. I believe this is about a 3.35, but I will still round it up to a 3.5 because is was quick and fun to play. If you have to choose 2 courses to play, go and play Blackhawk and Hunter, then come and consider McClure.

One of my favorites
Pros: Frequently mowed.
Concrete tee pads.
Alternate tee pads are labeled on sidewalk (you just have to look for them).
Good mixture of long and short holes.
Risk/Reward holes all along the creek.
It is possible, but it's hard to lose a disc out here.
This course usually dries out pretty quick after a rain.
Putting basket / warm up area.
Cons: Signs are either faded out or missing.
There can be quite a bit of trash blowing around from lazy picknickers.
Not the nicest part of Tulsa.
Other Thoughts: Really fun course that'll always be a challenge for me.
Hole #2 is an ace run with OB on all sides.
Hole #5 is a 500+ft bomb from an elevated tee.
Hole #8 has a creek running right across the fairway.
Hole #15 Shoots across a giant part of the creek and depending on the pin placement can be a nightmare for righties.

An oldie but a goodie
Pros: This course has an excellent variety, and it is very attractive for every skill level. There is really not a rough, so bad shots are not terribly hard to recover from. Beginners can probably enjoy this course, because it's not too punishing. However, intermediate players will find some challenge and even pros would probably enjoy a round here.
The trees are used very well. Also, the creek is in play on several holes and adds some extra challenge.
Baskets and tee pads are in fine condition. There are restrooms, water fountains, discs(?), and a course map (?) in the gym. I didn't check that myself, but that's what I understood. A walking trail, along with the gym and tennis courts give a variety of other activities. There is plenty of parking.
Cons: Several signs are missing or damaged. Navigation is pretty easy on most holes, but could be made easier with a few well placed signs.
I don't like playing by a busy road and a couple of holes play along a road. Also pedestrians on the walking path could occasionally interfere.
Other Thoughts: All in all, McClure is a very enjoyable course. It offers several challenges with no severe punishment and makes for an enjoyable round. A big arm would have several birdie opportunities, but very few easy ones.
Tulsa is an incredible disc golf city. McClure is one of the best courses in town. Definitely a good choice!
PS If you have time for two rounds, play here twice. Don't waste your time driving to Dovillio.

Nice Little Gem in Tulsa
Pros: Good concrete tees
Good tee signs
Great use of the elevation
Love the use of the water hazards
Creek is well taken care of (not a muddy mess)
Great variety of shots
Uphill, downhill, across water, beside water, open, technical, short, long
Very little trash
Bridges in good shape
Nice walking path
Great use of OB to improve the challenge
A few multiple pin locations
Good for beginners to advanced
Good risk/ reward
Favorite Hole(s): #2, #5, #11
Cons: A few tee signs need work
A few erosion proplems that they are currently working on
Could use a few more benches/trash cans
Maybe a couple more bridges
Walking path and street comes into play on a few holes
A few well placed trees would take the challenge up a notch
Other Thoughts: Tulsa and the disc golfers of the are should be proud of this little gem. While it may not be the best in the area it is place to go and relax and work on all your shots. We went in the dead of winter with 25mph winds and loved it. I can imagine how nice this place must be in the Spring/Summer. Great place to take your family and have a lot of fun right in the middle of Tulsa.
I will be back without a doubt. If in Tulsa this is a stop that should be made.

Pros: Nice variety of distance and technical, with some technical AND long holes. Creek through makes it tough on a lot of holes. Nice use of elevation available.
Cons: Shallow creek is in play on a lot of holes. Not in the nicest part of town. Can run across some crowded times with a walking trail and picnic tables scattered through the park.
Other Thoughts: This is one of the classic DG courses in Tulsa. If you come into town, you must play. Everyone has.
