I was in Dallas this past weekend, and got out to DeBusk park on Sunday (during the beautiful post-Ike weather
) for the 3rd time...it's definitely growing on me. This is without a doubt a course designed for beginners, but it has enough variation and length (on some holes) to make it fun for all skill levels.
Hole 1 is a <150' ace run with OB road about 25' past the basket...there are a few low tree limbs that force a slight anhyzer, but it's still a putter ace run. Hole 2 is probably close to 400', wide open with a creek on the right side and OB walking path / woods on the left. Hole 3 was my favorite...downhill about 375' with a large creek on the left and a large group of bare trees short of the pin to the right. A large tree on the left keeps the anhyzer route tricky, while the group of trees on the right keep the hyzer from being an easy one...they're just short enough that you really want to try and bomb one over the top. The rest of the holes are so-so....though the very short, downhill #6 was another fun putter ace run (btw, I hit metal 3 times with my Aviar that day...holes 1, 6, and 9).
If you find yourself in Mesquite with only about an hour to play some golf, this would be your best choice!
