Fun Disc Golfiní Weekend!

Posted by Disc Golf Station on 11/8/2009 to Disc Golf Courses

Turner Park, Lester Lorch-Coyote and Beaver, Mountain Creek Disc Golf Courses

I had a fun weekend playing ye olde frisbee golf.  I tried out a challenging new course in Grand Prairie, Tx called Turner Park on Friday.  It features lots of elevation change and requires you to pull out all of your shots.  Hope you can backhand, sidearm, thumb, and roll.  It is a par 58, consisting of two par 4′s and one par 5.  The last hole is an 800 ft. monster going way uphill, then flat, then way back downhill, all through fairways that have enough trees to keep you frustrated.  :-)

Hereís a course map:

After Turner Park, we headed over to the championship level courses at Cedar Hillís Lester Lorch Park.  The Coyote and Beaver courses are both 18 holes of disc golf pleasure.  Youíre going to want your golf discs to be in the premium, durable lines because there are plenty of trees to hit.  These are great courses that also challenge you to bring your ďAĒ game.  Itís a disc golf only park and rarely very busy.  There are excellent tee signs, tee pads, and baskets-and multiple placements to boot.  A great choice for some doubles action!

From there we went over the Mountain Creek Park to check it out.  Itís just a 9 hole in a community park with no signs, no tee pads, and ailing baskets.  We played safari holes and made our best guess.  Itís really not as bad as you might think, itís a great place to get some driving practice.  Itís the perfect driving range!

Bicentennial, Arcadia, North Park Disc Golf Courses

Saturday we went out to Bicentennial Park in Crowley, Texas (south Fort Worth).  Crowley has 21 holes,  multiple placements, and three different tees.  The Blue (short) tees are great fun and offer birdie opportunities on almost every hole.  But donít get too excited because these are the type of holes that can easily turn into fours if you hit an early tree or have one errant shot.  Get ready to hike up and down, and up and down, and up and downÖ  The White (Intermediate) tees are challenging but not too discouraging for the recreational player.  If you want one of the toughest challenges in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, jump on the Red tees.  Count it golden if you can play single digits over par.  Seriously.  Iím not joking, check it out.

From there we hit Arcadia Park in Fort Worth and finished up the weekend on Sunday at North Park in Fort Worth/Haltom City.  My arm is tired but my heart is content.

See ya on the course, people!
