Pros: #12 and #15 tops and chains have been replaced! Brand new discatchers! The only two holes in the park with double chains.
Shot variety
2 concrete tees on every hole
Accurate signs although not present on #10, #11.
Challenging water holes
a LOT of shade
discatcher baskets (good condition)
Lots of tables to sit/eat at
pavillions with nice new grills
rarely crowded
no thick brush to walk through or tall rough
paved trail that follows most of the course
Cons: no bathrooms
no water
#2 basket is a little bent but playable
#6 basket is broken and where there should be a bolt, there is a stick holding the basket up.
2 missing tee signs, but fairly easy to navigate
fairway of 16 is a overflow parking lot and on days with basketball or football games can be very crowded.

UNPLAYABLE on LA Tech football game days.
2014 home games are listed below and if you are planning to play a round here, do not come on those days. Course will be playable the day before and the day after game day.
Other Thoughts: LA Tech Home Games:
9/20/14 vs Northwestern State
10/4/14 vs UTEP
10/18/14 vs UTSA
11/1/14 vs Western Kentucky
11/29/14 vs Rice

I personally replaced the mando signs on hole 6 and 17 with handmade signs that have held up well over the last few years. The mando on 17 is in play to keep players from throwing to the right side of the hole which is the fairway of 18. There is a water fountain under the big blue argent pavillion at hole 17.
Hole 2 and 17 have changed locations in 2011 due to construction.
Cross the road after hole 15 to get to 16 tee.

Pros: A good mix of lightly wooded, clear, and dense wooded holes, about 50/20/30%. A few real challenges present themselves, #3 is narrow with a creekbed immediately to the right and behind the basket, #13 is a densely wooded with a sharp dogleg left. Good course to start on with a lot of holes requiring accuracy above all else. Short and Long Tees available on most holes. Nice new paths and signs to direct you between holes. Nice scenic paths.
Cons: Limited parking. Hole #16 crosses over an area used for parking for school events and could be covered in cars. Hole #17 is now difficult to navigate sue to a pavilion addition, used to be a long dogleg right but now may be a straight-shot through the woods. Could use more hole descriptions. No bathrooms.
Other Thoughts: Bring someone with you who knows the course to avoid getting mixed up and not seeing baskets.

 a fun course to play considering the limited number of acres

Pros: Makes nice use of the creek and the limited elevation. I really enjoyed holes 1-7. The last 3 holes are across the street. 16's basket is across from parking area. Holes 3,4 and 5 run along a creek. Hole 3 runs parallel to the creek with no room to work with between you and the creek which is on your right. It is an intimidating looking basket location to some, but there is a spot to climb down and the water is not too deep to see through it, so you should not lose a disc on hole 3. So let her rip with no worries. I have never looked at the water level behind holes 4 and 5 or to see if there is a safe place to walk down, so you might want to check it out before you throw. Decent variety of required shots. Moderate number of trees, but not enough to annoy those golfers that don't like heavily wooded courses. I love heavily wooded courses and although hideaway is not heavily wooded it has enough to keep golfers like me interested. Not too hard of a course to introduce new players to our sport. It might be a better hook with which to catch new people than a typical wide open city park cram job with walkers everywhere or people flying kites in the fairways. Plenty of places to rest or refresh.
Cons: Not enough trash cans. Sort of hard to navigate. if it is busy a few holes can be dangerous. Needs better signage.
Other Thoughts: This is an original course in my opinion. It isn't like any that I have previously played. It has a good amount of shade even though it is not heavily wooded, but it is not lightly wooded. Enjoy a quick cool round.

Pros: Probably the hilliest course in NELA.
Clearly Marked hole information
Refines every shot in your bag.
All holes within general eye-sight (centrally located)
Challenging shots with heavy woods and plenty of dog-legs.
Park is generally clean with walkers and pedisterians about
Cons: Punishingly tight fairways.
Some holes are insane: narrow lanes to throw thru, deep ravines, 90 degree turns
Hard to navigate for booming throwers who are use to wide open spaces.
Other Thoughts: Good course and offers a great variety to the other courses in the area.

Pros: Good course to practice control shots. Plenty of trees, but there are clear paths to the baskets. Trees provide shade in the summer time which is welcomed!
Cons: No bathrooms

Pros: It is an easily accible course,and has plenty of chalenges. Although not needed in Jan. there is plenty of shade.
Cons: No bathrooms. No drinking water. All holes are par 3(some are a lot more chalenging than others.Acouple of tee boxes are unmarked,causing a lot of unnecessary confusion.
Other Thoughts: While I like a challenge it could do with a few less trees.

Pros: Nice quiet park to play in. Lots of obstacles to challenge even a seasoned disc golfer.
Cons: Bring your hip-waders because there are a couple of baskets right on a huge creek, and although there wasn't much water there today it is still a very deep gulley. A couple of tees are not marked so if the course is unknown to you there will be extra walking involved to find them.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend that if you know someone that knows this course, bring them with you and it will be a lot more fun.
