Growing Disc Golf One Course at a Time


McCabe Minute
by Eric McCabe

The Heritage Park Disc Golf Course located in Flower Mound, TX  is an 18-hole course I designed that is becoming the most popular course in DFW. Nestled within the woodlands of the Cross Timbers eco-region, the course is laid out over 25 acres of some of the most scenic, natural, and undisturbed land Flower Mound has to offer. There is a wide range of tree lined fairways, meandering creek beds, water hazards, rock outcroppings, and terrain that offers dramatic elevation changes. The course is designed for the more experienced players, but can also be enjoyed by beginners.
This Par 58, measures in around 5,500 feet and forces you to throw accurate shots if you wish to shoot anywhere close to Par.

This course has been well over a year in the making. Clint Wofford and Chuck Jennings, Director of Parks and Recreation of the Town of Flower Mound, reached out to me with the dream of having a Disc Golf Course in their town. Of course I was thrilled with idea, seeing how my family is all located in North Texas, matter of fact my brother lives in Flower Mound approximately 4 miles from the course. When I made my initial trip down I didn’t really know what to expect. I met up with Clint and Chuck and we spent hours walking the property, getting to know the lay of the land. First thing I noticed was a sign that said, “Beware of Snakes” uhhh yea, I’m not a fan, and from that moment on I was watching every step very carefully. I’m happy to say after spending many, many days out there, I didn’t see a single slithery serpent. I spent the next week straight walking through the tight, thorny woods getting to know every inch of the property. I had a good idea of the direction I wanted to go, I already knew exactly where I wanted the course to being, and end, now I just needed to find 16 more holes in between. Another week has gone by and I’m finally ready to start marking everything. With my backpack full of ground whiskers, marking paint, and miles of ribbon I hit the course. Depending on how wooded the hole is and how much I need to mark, it can take almost 3 hours to properly mark one hole. That’s how thick these woods were. GPS coordinates documented, tee pads, basket locations and trees are all marked and ready for the final walkthrough. The Town of Flower Mound hired a tree service to remove all the underbrush, thorns and invasive species that I had previously marked. They absolutely killed it! They had everything removed within a week, and were ready for me to come back down and check their work. While walking the course for what felt like the 1000th time, I was as excited as I was the first time! The course was shaping up great and I knew it was going to be a very popular one. There is nothing like it anywhere close to DFW and the Dynamic Discs Carrollton crew will have another great course to put in their rotation of quality events. The weekend of February 23rd and 24th, Flower Mound held a soft opening for the course. You could tell people were extremely excited about it because the course was packed the entire weekend, even if the conditions weren't exactly perfect for Disc Golf.

I’ve been involved in Disc Golf for more than half my life. From a fan, watching the Pro’s  to competing at the highest level and winning majors, to now designing courses across the Country,  Design has become a passion of mine, and I take pride in every one of my courses. I now have over 35 designs in 15 different states, and I’m looking to add a handful more and even an International course to my resume this season. Thanks to everyone for the support throughout the years!

Below are some quotes from players that played the course on opening weekend:


“This course is definitely going to make me a better player!”
Carlton Logic

“Loving this course my new all time favorite”
Andre Gonzalez


“I've played it all three days lol it's fantastic!!!”
Kyle Kettner

“Played it twice already- this is a quality, difficult but fair course. Lots of fun, challenging holes.”
Christopher Casey

“Played there today its an awesome course that will challenge your game”
Steven Snider

  6. In a world of constantly changing technology, educators are working to bring that technology to students. Textbooks are just not able to keep up with technological advances. Teachers are able to help prepare their students for technology and information they will encounter in life after they finish school by using integrated technology in the classrooms. vehicle checker
