 Good Practice Course

Pros: This is a good course for beginners. Its wide open for those out of control drives to the left. Basket #2 has been replaced brand new. Every hole has been marked with a sign now.
Cons: This course stays muddy and holds water on several holes after a good rain. The grass gets pretty high surrounding the fairway so keep an eye on your disc.
Other Thoughts: This is a short 9 hole course, it's worth playing if your bored with other courses in the area. Try playing it twice to make it an eighteen hole game.

 What a waste

Pros: *There are 8 disc golf baskets...aside from that I'm not sure what there is to like about this course.
Cons: *A wide open field, VERY few trees, NO elevation changes, NO water to make holes play tougher and absolutely nothing to contribute to the fun-factor
*Complete waste of 9 baskets (the 8 remaining and the one that is missing)
*The only thing worse than a wide open field is a wide open field that isn't mowed, which is how I found it.
Other Thoughts: This course is a complete waste- of your time, the land it is on and the baskets used. You would be better of driving right on down the road to Harry Myers in Rockwall. The city would be better off saving the money they spend on "maintaing the park" and the baskets would be better off on a piece of land that would make for a decent golf course.

Pros: Good beginner course which is the level i am at right now. Just started and took my new discs out to this part to test them out. Easy, easy course. Does have a path mowed out for the player though.
Cons: Not kept up with at all, no markings really, Hole #2 doesn't exist at all anymore. No obstacles practically and Hole #1 is too close to housing backyards and i threw one back in someones property.
Other Thoughts: Need a park to play at its fine, but not recommended for groups to play at together.

 Just skip it...

Pros: Umm...Hole 1 isn't too bad of a hole...kind of a fun midrange ace-run shot.

A few long/open holes to practice your distance drives on.

Being flat and open, could be good practice for windy days.
Cons: A few baskets missing, no signs at all.

Most holes are just flat and wide open with no obstables...meaning no fun at all.

The first time I played was in the summer, and the "fairways" were just 10' wide strips mowed throuh 2' tall was a total pain finding errant discs.

Fun level: 0
Other Thoughts: Unless you're on a quest to play every course...seriously...just skip this one. About 10 minutes down the road is Harry Myers Park in Rockwall, notch course designed by John Houck. Go play there and enjoy yourself!

Pros: Not many. It's pretty easy. Good for beginners that want to see how their discs will fly
Cons: #2 basket is still missing, no tees, no signs on most holes, not many trees
Other Thoughts: Drive the extra 10 miles into Rockwall to Harry Myers Park for 18 holes of greatness.

Pros: The only good thing about this course is also the one thing that makes it different from all other 9 hole courses I've played. There are quite a few holes that are 400'-500' making it a rare 9 hole big arm course.
Cons: This is the most open, flat, boring 9 hole course I have ever played. It is literally a field of Johnson grass with fairways mowed through it.

Be careful not to turn one over into a backyard on #1. They all lock their gates and have huge dogs.

The #2 basket is missing.

Teepads are non existent and most signs are missing. You have to use your investigative skills to find clues as to where the locals tee off.

The #9 fairway is a swamp after a rain.
Other Thoughts: This could be a decent course if they would plant some trees and put in some good signs and teepads.
