Decent Course but Sparsely Wooded

Pros: Good tee Pads
Fairly easy to Navigate
Good design on some of the holes
Some well protected baskets
Makes good use of land available
Cons: Fairly flat and plain
Sparsely wooded in most spots
Several of the holes too easy for intermediate/advanced players
No signature or rememberable holes
Holes all close together/not spread out
Other Thoughts: Living in DFW, it was worth a trip out to play this course even more than once but not really a draw unless you live in the area or on the FW side of town. Developed by a couple of guys who helped build some of the DFW disc golf scene so it's got some good holes, but some were just typical flat open park holes with not much to talk about.

Pros: Nice use of trees
multiple baskets per hole
Nice variety
Not crowded, only 3 of us on whole course
Cons: Signs and navigation are horrible.
You better take a photo of the map in the marking lot before starting unless you know the course
Other Thoughts: I felt it was worth the 45 minute drive. I would do it again. It's nice course and fun.

Pros: -Concrete tees on every hole.
-Multiple pin locations that are pretty easy to know the difference between.
-Safe environment for the family.
-Tee markers provide a good description.
-The tower pin placement on hole 8 was interesting.
-There was a creek, but the water was almost all dried up. I imagine it would only be a problem after a huge storm.
Cons: -TREES! Being a relative newcomer to the sport, the trees gave me fits all day. I understand this is desirable for "technical and experienced" disc golfers, but the trees made my experience miserable. Strategic placement of flight lanes through trees is one thing, but most of these were "Throw and hope it gets through."
-While being interesting, the tower pin placement on hole 8 was harder than it needed to be in my opinion. Maybe I am just new and things like this are the norm.
Other Thoughts: I traveled here as a gift to myself for my birthday to try a course other than my home course. I had high hopes based on previous reviews, but this was not worth the trip in my opinion.

If you are hard core, experienced, and a good technical disc golfer, I say go for it. If you are a beginner, I would look for other options.

 Worth the drive from DFW

Pros: Tee signs on every hole
multiple tee cement tee boxes
multiple pin positions
VERY good use of the land given
Cons: pay attention to the map, some of the holes can be confusing if your not paying attention.
Other Thoughts: 1st time I had played this course in years. I had played it many times as a 9 hole and with 9 temp holes added. This was the first time in many years sense the course was expanded to 18 and with all the alts.

Very large tree's for most of this course, while not a lot of them, they do come into play on most of the holes. There is a small creek running though the course, it had water in it the day we were playing, but I can see it drying up for the summer.

There is some slight elevation changes on a few of the holes. There is also a few wide open rip it holes.

In all, a very good mix of long and short, tight and wide open.

Best thing, stop at The Shed @ Daves Stove Shop at the corner by the highway for lunch, well worth the trip on it's own. (not open on Sun/Mon)

Pros: This course is pretty awesome. Great use of land and lots of challenge shots with all the trees around. Plenty of shade, great landscaping and teeboxes.
Cons: Needs to be mowed right now. Grass was pretty high in some places. Don't expect your discs to skip for extra distance, the grass is too thick.
Other Thoughts: I can't wait to come out and play here again. Too bad I live about an hour away. If there's a PDGA tournament here, I'm definitely signing up.

Pros: **UPDATE** Finally got back out to this course last night after work. It is in great shape right now. I think they may have recently added a new 3rd pin position on every hole, and that's where the pins are right now. They are all pretty long, so it made the course more difficult for a beginner like me. While we were there people were out spraying for ants, and trimming dead off the trees, always good to see!

I truly enjoyed this course. It was my first time ever playing, and even though I have been to others since, this is still my favorite by far. I feel like it has a great mix of hole types. I went with two experienced players and another rookie, and we all had a really good time.
Cons: Grass was a little tall in some places in the fairway, a couple tee pads need to have some dirt added around them so water doesn't collect right in front of them. Makes for a pretty scary tee shot!
Other Thoughts: Definitely worth the trip out west if you live in the DFW area!

 Open but not too easy

Pros: This is a great course for beginners and experienced players. It has great sweeping lines that let you rip a long drive on most holes. There are excellent long and short cement tee pads for every hole as well as two or three pin placements for each hole. It plays well even after a good rain because of the grass and good drainage. If you play the long box to the long pins then it is a very challenging course and if you play the short box to the short pins it is very beginner friendly course.
Cons: I have difficulty with low ceiling shots so this is not in my favorites. There are some nice open shots that let you get a good bomb shot, but most of them have a low ceiling and that will be frustrating for most players. I personally would like more elevation changes and more variety in the holes/shots.
Other Thoughts: The park is well taken care of. There are plenty of trash cans and there is rarely trash on the course when I play. My favorite holes are 7 and 8.

Pros: This is an excellent course for all skill levels. The long throwers will be able to reach all or almost all of the holes with their drives and can make it more challenging by driving with their mid-range discs on many of the holes. I'm a senior and normally drive around 300' which makes this a lot of fun because most of the holes are around 295 - 330. The trees are used advantageously to make most of the holes a test for even the best players. Extended tee pads are nice. For the most part it isn't a long hike between baskets to the next tee pad. Multiple tee pads and basket locations provide a good variety. The trees provide lots of shade on most holes.
Cons: Some of the tee pads have a little bit of a drop off. I agree with a previous reviewer about the dog people being oblivious to flying objects.

Pros: -Fantistic concrete teepads
-Long and short teepads on almost every hole
-Multiple pin locations
-Very well kept
-Trash cans and benches throughout
-Friendly locals
-Port-a-john near parking lot
-Pratice basket near parking lot
-Good amount of shade provided by the trees through most holes
Cons: -If it's your first time out you might have a hard time with flow in a few spots
-Some days there are lots of oblivious dog walkers walking through your fairway
Other Thoughts: I love this course, that pretty much sums it up. Decent shot variety although some will argue it needs more (the new 9 that are coming will add good variety). It is mostly RHBH friendly but there's a couple where RHFH will have a big advantage. It is always very clean thanks to the fantastic club at Weatherford. The wind is almost always a factor thanks to the lake, could be a pro because it adds to the challenge or a con if it's beating you up that day. Good amount and use of trees, not too many but enough to make you think about shot placement and try new lines. Everyone is always friendly out there and you should be confident that you are safe to bring the family here. Occasionally the city will drain water from the lake which come through the park. It stays in the creek for the most part but it will make 9&14 rather wet sometimes. It is very important to me to have teepads that are long enough. Nothing sucks more than stepping off the end of a pad and screwing up your shot, and possible hurting your ankle/knee or something else. This is a complete non issue here. This is a great course and if you haven't played here you need to come play it!

Pros: - Well thought out pin placements
- long concrete teepads
- multiple tee & pin positions
- solid mix of shots
- good baskets
- good signage (except for missing sign on hole 2)
- trees are used well as obstacles
- well shaded for the summer months
Cons: - navigation was somewhat challenging for the first go around
- tall grass in some areas
- wasn't an issue when I was there, but the whole course is in a floodplane by the lake, so I would imagine it can probably get pretty hairy with any real precipitation
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed this course, it is very well laid out. It would be safe to take a beginner here, but still provides a challenge for advanced players looking for deuces (lots of birdie opportunities). It offers some great variety.

Not necessarily a pro or con, but this course seemed oddly LHBH friendly.
