Another decent option in Tulsa
-new baskets, decent tees w/ signs
-some particularly fun holes (6 was my favorite with a slight uphill and some decent guardian trees, and 9 was also fun with the basket up on a ridge under a tree)
-longer than you might expect for a 9-hole; decent wind/distance practice
-lots of shots that could potentially hit other park users
-overshadowed by some of Tulsa's greats that are nearby (great problem to have!)
Other Thoughts: I played this course early in the morning on a full day of disc golf in Tulsa. I only brought a few discs (mids/putters), not having carefully scouted out the hole distances. When I play again, I'll be sure to bring at least a couple drivers, since the first 4 holes were much longer than I expected (~400'). That's definitely more of a positive than a negative, except for the fact that several of the holes here throw over/near soccer fields, softball field, the park walking path, the parking lot, and a picnic area. I was there before 8 in the morning, and I already had to wait for folks to walk past both on the walking path and the picnic. The soccer fields were empty, but I doubt that's the case in the evenings.
It's a fun practice course, and I'm glad Tulsa's disc golf scene seems to be thriving. I hope this gets some kids hooked on disc golf. Perhaps the library (close to 7's tee, where I parked) already has or will have some kind of after school program to get the community throwing. Nevertheless, it's close enough to McClure or Blackhawk/Redhawk that I'll probably head somewhere else next time I'm in the area.
Rating: I feel like I'm being hard on this course giving it a 2.0, but I definitely feel it's lacking a little compared to my 2.5 courses. It has a couple above average holes, but most are very open. Don't play on busy days, or you'll likely be skipping holes or waiting for people to move out of your way. Once again, thanks to Tulsa Disc Sports for the maintenance, new baskets, and signs!
