Pros: First of all if you live in Plano/Allen/Mckinney/Richardson/Addison then this course should be on your radar.

This course has a good variety of holes. Fairly challenging. Mostly maintained, considering how public the area is.

If you are a competitive player, there are flip double tournies on sundays that are open to the public.

Great course to practice on once you've gotten the hang of the layout.
Cons: On that last note, the course used to be a 9-hole and they dropped a back 9 on top of it so it can be confusing, often tees or baskets are shared. This is usually not too much of a problem, but I have had to wait on holes enough times to tell you to give yourself an extra 15-30 minutes to get through a round. Sometimes pedestrians can get in the way as well; you play through a walking trail, football field, and field where kids play soccer.

You are in the middle of a neighborhood, so this is a toss up between good and bad. For me it is conveniently 1/2 mile from my house so I can literally roll out of bed and play at least a couple holes. Fod others who are not so close this does play into more of a con as (though not often) I have seen a few straw drives almost hit some moving cars you play alongside of.
Other Thoughts: If you want a quick easy to find staple/practice course this is your place. You'll have fun, theres a good mix of distance and doglegs and short aceables.

On a sidenote, with the strange layout, many people have resorted to playing out of order or sometime two holes at once to avoid doubling back on much of the course. If you've got enough discs in your bag you can get through 18 in about 40 minutes. I don't do this much as I like to track my statistics but this can be enticing to some and frustrating to others.

Cons: Jogers
Other Thoughts: There are some great players that play on this course all the time, so keep your eyes out for an Ace shot!!!!

Pros: It uses the creek and trees well to add challenge to some shots. A few striaght away wide open holes are good to practices driving and for the newer player tweaking thier game. Trees located around some baskets and tees adds some challenge. Well taken care of by city. Shade is available in spots.
Cons: Tee boxes are dirt and well worn (read: ruts) Can be easy to get lost the first few times through due to the over laping nature of the course. Fields can be hot and wind swept.
Other Thoughts: Keep in mind I have only been throwing for a few months now and this course is only minutes from my house. I have a bit of a bias and a small arm so all in all I find this a good place to work on my game. A few friends of mine don't mind playing it, but it is not a fan favorite.
