Lester Lorch - Coyote
Both courses at Lester Lorch in Cedar Hill are a ton of fun! It is really great to be able to get 36 different holes in at one location where the variety, challenge, and scenery are so great! These two courses are primarily used only by disc golfers so it is a great retreat to surround yourself with the great outdoors and disc golf!
The Coyote course is much more wooded than the Beaver course, which in my opinion makes it the more difficult course of the two on the property.
There are a couple of holes that are long throws out in the open, but all of the rest are tucked into trees requiring technical throws with a high level of accuracy.
A couple of favorite holes for me:
Hole 2 has a hill that comes up right in front of the tee box that you have to be sure to clear while also being careful not to throw too high because of the low ceiling. Also, too far left or right will leave you in doubt of grabbing a par.
Hole 14 is a fun shot off the side of a hill out into a big field with the basket guarded by trees around it. It is a fun 400 foot throw that you can actually throw a big hyzer on and still get there due to the elevation advantage.
This course demands a lot of you. You have to be in decent shape to even walk the course with a lot of uphill and downhill fairways. There are some ace runs that could quickly turn into 3s and 4s if you don’t execute an accurate throw. Good shots are usually rewarded well, but the downside of errant shots means playing safe and placing your shots can guarantee you a par in most cases. I find myself relying on my full arsenal of shots especially when ending up with a lie that I didn’t exactly intend. This is also a fun course for putting as there is usually some kind of obstacle (mainly trees) to prevent a direct approach.
These two courses are definitely worth a long drive to get to. Go when you have lots of time to really enjoy the course and its beauty.
It is easy to see that a LOT of work has been put into this course and the payoff is an awesome couple of course.
If you live within 100 miles of this course and haven’t played it yet, you need to fix that!
