Yeah they are all pretty lame! That is what happens when most of the courses were designed by a 870 rated woman.

Wow they must have changed circle c up alot since i played it last, i wasnt impressed granted it was a very long time ago as with live oak not impressed at all but it has been 7-8 years. I really dont think Crowley should be on the list either. Towne lake could be on there, but i cant put it as i am biased since it is my weekly course.

Still need to make it upto Denison too, heard nothing but good things

Lets start a new thread bottom 5!

Circle C was renovated a couple years ago by the designer of Manor / Roy G -- it's tasty now.

Circle C has been changed about 8 times (it seems) since I first played it in '96. Loved it back then. It was ahead of its time.

Well, if you haven't noticed yet(which you probably have) SCoot_er is our local self entitled, conceded, non representing pro.

We have some really great courses in Houston but yes, the championship level courses are lacking.

All I'll say is that 870 rated women has done more for disc golf in Houston then you ever will.

Actually I am not local! I haven't been for 8 years.

I am not here to trash anyone....but seriously do you expect good courses when the same person designs all of them?.....I'm sure for free.

Name a "great" Houston course!.....I can think of some "good ones" like Windwood, Spring Valley, and potentially Cedar Hills at Brooks..... Houston has quantity but not really quality.

Yah, youre right about one thing, it doesnt belong on the list

But the idea that pros like to play this kind of trash course is a joke, I dont know where this concept is coming from that we want to be thrown in the woods with a bunch of holes that have no fairways
