Old, Flat, Dangerous

Pros: 8 DGA baskets
Trees in play on a few holes that add interest.
Navigation makes sense (I found my way around successfully without signage).
Good open spaces to do field work.
Cons: The baskets are old and not in great shape. The basket for hole one is missing. Two other baskets are surrounded by high weeds and marshy ground around the creek. (I think the parks dept. probably changed their policy on maintaining riparian zones since the course was built, but didn't move the baskets.)
The only tee markings are short wooden posts and some are missing.
Concrete tee pads that appear to have the same amount of concrete as an average pad, but are wider and shorter, so they are almost square. I take only a short run-up and I had to start on the ground behind the pad.
Several of the holes are just throws in an open field. A few others are throws in an open field to a basket that is next to a single tree.
I played on a hot day and there was very little shade to come by. I think I was only ever in the shade near the baskets of holes 6 and 7.
The hyzer line for hole 9 throws directly over a playground and then over a sidewalk. The low, straight line for that hole passes within the 10-meter circle for hole 2 (but is blind to that basket) and then crosses that sidewalk.
There are several creek crossings in the middle of holes (holes 4, 5, and 6) that do not add any danger for your score (they are each around 100' from the tee), but add danger in that you must look for a safe way to cross the creek.
Other Thoughts: I would categorize this course as a practice or teach new players-only kind of course. The baskets are old, the course is not well-marked, and several holes present danger for either the player or other park-goers.

Pros: -- Good variety of distances. Two holes are longer than 300 feet and another two are longer than 290.The other five holes are 220-250.
-- Never busy (at least the disc golf course).
-- Creek adds some challenge.
-- Restrooms on site (although they were locked during our COVID-era visit).
Cons: -- Playground near holes 1/9 could create safety hazards.
-- Mostly wide open. Wind has been awful every time I've played here. And there are only a few trees.
-- There are no good places to cross the creek, which is required a couple of times.
Other Thoughts: -- This is a boring layout. Given the land, there's not much else to do.

Played once, probably never again
Pros: Too Simple of a course. Good basic beginner
Cons: No real obstacles or hazards other than your disc flying into a backyard. Not easy to get across the stream running down the center
Other Thoughts: Hole 6 or 7 was on the ground. LOL

Ok for beginners/new disc testing
Pros: - Unless you shank one into a yard, you will not lose a disc
- This course plays easy and has many birdie opportunities
- Good for beginning players or if you are trying to learn a new disc
Cons: - #1 has a playground that's not only in play, but is kid-hazardous. If you're a RHBH, beware.
- If you play after it has rained, bring your waders. It gets very muddy.
- There are lots of runners/kids riding bikes/etc.

Not Bad and good layout
Pros: Well I made an Aerial View of the Course to help you out But it is Marked and has a very good layout. Most of the holes are short Par 2 but still has a good mix up of throws. Very Clean was well mowed when we went and creek is pretty dry
Other Thoughts: Not bad only hole 8 basket is a little bent up prob from kids. Baskets are pretty good

Willow Creek Park Rundown!!!
Pros: -T-pads for every hole
-Pads are marked with small posts stamped with hole #. (Almost every hole if I remember correctly)
-Easy to navigate
-Looks like the course stays well groomed
-Some hazards (fences, streets, and small drainage creek)
-Short and long holes
Cons: -#1 does sort of shoot over the playground, atleast close to it. Watch for children.
-Pretty bland with regards to obsticle (trees, shrubs, water)
-Heard this one gets pretty boggy after a rain in the low lying small creek.
Other Thoughts: Nothing out of the ordinary for a simple, average 9-holer.
Good 9-holer to accompany North Park, Arcadia, Saddle Hills, Eagle Ranch, or any of the courses in N-NW Fort Worth.
Great little course to practice your midrange game on, especially the windy midrange game. Wide open. Bring just a midrange and a putter and one could have some fun out here. Every hole ; very ace-able.
Would be a nice course for someone to learn the sport on.

Pros: -good variety of distances
-not busy (with discers anyway)
-good for practicing distance drives, a handful of open bombers
-good for practicing playing in the wind
-creek adds some challenge, OB
Cons: -location ensures poor conditions, wet and marshy
-playground near hole 1, may be people/kids walking around near holes 1, 2, 9
-mostly wide open, only a few trees and some minor elevation changes to spice things up
-no good places to cross the creek on hole 4
Other Thoughts: A pretty simple, mostly open park course. It works if you live nearby but it's not worth going out of the way. Boring for an experienced player but some of the long holes and the creek are problematic for beginners too. Plus, it will be a swamp if it has rained at all recently. The fairway on hole 5 was literally underwater when I played and it hadn't rained in days.
Probably a much better experience in the dry season but still not much to offer, especially with the first and last holes being so close to the playground.

Pros: Its less than a mile from my home. Almost never anyone there during the week. I don't have to worry about losing discs. It's about good for a warm up, thats all.
Cons: Zero challenge. It is located on a flood overflow area, if it rains, no play. No trees to block the wind. Playground in play hole 1
Other Thoughts: The course over is a victim of its own design. Located on a flood plain area, the slightest bit of precicpitation and prepare to have wet socks. No wind breaks to ease the Texas gusts.

No Challenge, Just Practice
Pros: Private, the entire course is your to do as you please.
Good place to practice approach shots and ace runs.
Cons: Way too short to get excited about.
Lack of trees.
Marsh in play on most holes.
Jogging path in play.
Other Thoughts: When I played last it was technically too muddy too play, but I wasn't going to let that stop me. I slipped on the knee high rubber boots and turned my nose up at the ponds that had formed under the baskets. For a putt and approach course, this course is fine, but I really only played it because I was working in the area for a few days.
If you lived in the area and wanted a challenge, I would imagine you could play from any tee pad and just shoot to a longer basket. There's not going to be anyone else out there to get in your way, so why not.
