Great Disc Golf Course

2-4    10/2/2016   10/10/2016
Review By: FlyFish84
Played: 7  Reviewed: 6  Exp: 1.5 Years
Pros: This is a great course to learn the game! All new signs on central course as of May 2016. Makes it easy to navigate even for beginners. Not sure when the tee pads were installed but they are all nice cement pads.
Cons: Walking path can slow play occasionally, and they also have festivals in the park that can interfere with part of the course occasionally.
Other Thoughts: Learning the game here, and can't wait to get back out and work on improving my game!!

Pros: -very well maintained course in the middle of public park
- lots of open holes holes for newer players to learn their throw
- some long, open holes to test your arm
- some good variety between open and lightly wooded holes
- a fun course for many different skill levels
- 27 hole layout (optional)
- alternate holes provide more technical shots for better players looking for the challenge
- nice baskets on regular 18
- nice teepadd on most of course
Cons: - needs updated signs
- a couple of older teepads
- hard to navigate the entire 27 unless with a local player who knows the layout
- walking trail that can come into play during busy times
Other Thoughts: Much improved course over the last couple of years. If you haven't played it lately all of the 18 hole layout had new baskets and all a few teepads.

Pros: Wide variety of holes. Some nice tee boxes. The park is very well maintained.
Cons: Lots of trees that will rob you of some great shots. This is pretty challenging for a new player. Some missing signs.
Other Thoughts: This is my home course and is where I am learning the game. It might be tough for someone who doesn't know the course very well but I enjoy playing here.

Pros: The park this course is in stays well manicured.
New tee boxes have been built on various holes over the past year and also new baskets put in.

There are I believe actually around 27 holes if you know where all the extra ones are but it is a straight 18 typically.

Some long holes that give a chance to rip some drives.
Cons: some signs/maps at teeboxes are broken
Other Thoughts: very good average day course

Pros: pretty park
good variety of distances
good variety of shot shapes
Cons: missing signs
unreadable signs
broken baskets
confusing navigation
mostly open, no tree lined fairways, which is expected of a public park type course
Other Thoughts: would be a good course to have nearby, but hard to enjoy on a road trip because you will do a bit of wandering to find your way

 A nice park

Pros: A nice little park. Good distances. Good routes. Decent tee pads. A very pretty location.
Cons: A bit crowded. I would like to have seen a better variety of lengths and pars. I like to see a hole or two I can go for, and 500 feet probably has no business as a par 3. Poor signage makes it hard to navigate at times.
Other Thoughts: Really pretty park. Worth a stop.

Pros: -The park is very easy to find and it is easy to find where to park and begin play.

-The course is very scenic. The trees are huge and the park itself is very well manicured and cared for.

-There were asphalt tee pads which is not as good as concrete tee pads but much better than grass or dirt. The course was very easy to follow on the first 10 holes.

-The course had very good lengths on some of the holes, some holes involve a big bomb others need the player to weave through the big tall trees.
Cons: -If the first 10 holes were easy to navigate the back 8 were nearly impossible to navigate. All 8 are missing signs and I completely missed about 5 holes because I simply could not find where to go, I never saw any of the last 5 baskets. I assume either they do not exist or they are in a different part of the park because were I go lost there was, what seemed like, a brand new walking path so those last few holes must have been relocated.

-Walkers are another thing to be cautious of. Some kind of walking path comes in play on a few holes on the front 9 and since the park seems to get a lot of walking traffic there may be small waits waiting for the pedestrians to walk through.
Other Thoughts: This course is very forgettable. The front 9 are fun but the fact that the back 9 is very hard to navigate makes for not so fun disc golf.

This seems to be the only course in the area that is worth playing but definitely needs a bit of work to get the rating up.

Pros: A nice course, there are some large trees on some of the holes that adds some challenge. The course flows well and you can find the next hole pretty easily when there isn't a sign (at least for 1-18).
Cons: There really aren't any long holes. About half the signs are missing. There are 4 extra holes in the woods, but there isn't a sign or map directing you to them, so they're hard to find if you don't know where they are.

Pros: This is my favorite type of course. Huge mature trees, short grass, no schule to deal with. You can really let your disc do what it was designed to do. This type of course is usually criticized for not offering enough challenge but to me it makes for fun, stress free disc golf in the shade. What more could you want?

Right off I-40 so you can hit up a quick round if you need a break from driving across the vast expanses of Texas and Arkansas.

Cons: Very busy park with walkers, joggers, kids, soccer games, picnics, etc, etc... so you have to be very careful and patient to play this course, especially on a nice afternoon or a Saturday morning.

A walking trail winds it's way through the entire course and you have to throw across it on quite a few occassions so just be prepared to wait.

This course seems to have evolved into 22 holes so the flow is a little confusing. I think they could easily redesign it and take some of the wide open field holes out and use the wooded holes to create a nice balanced 18 hole course on the original side of the park.

Pros: this is a great place to get your toss down, and work on your mechanics. the distance is great for bigginers and long drivers will hit birdies with no problem.
Cons: as of right now hole eight's basket has been broken by hoodlems but it is still operational, the walk way goes through over half of the course. and the holes 2,6,and 17 have a fence that you are not suposed to jump over( but i am not losing my disc, so it happens, be careful begginners)
Other Thoughts: this is a great place, no fear of danger from riff raft, they recently opend a police training facility right next to the park so crime is almost no existant, park closes at 10pm so night golf is limited.
