^^^ I haven't played Roy G yet, but I am not a fan of flat courses.

Harry meyers has an amazing front 9, but I was unimpressed with the back 9.

I second this, Cameron Beast is sweet! Amazing setting and a good mix of distance and technicality.

Unfortunately yes. My local course in College Station (Research Park) has dozens of trees marked for removal because they died in the drought. It has definitely changed to course a lot, and made it easier/less esthetically pleasing.

yes, the beast is 18 with a redesigned, longer front 9 and the same back 9.

the Selah courses are the best I've played, Texas or otherwise.

Roy G is worth a mention. I love the continuity of that course and the feeling that you are truly playing golf with a disc.

Have any of you guys who are trashing Army Trail played it recently? I went out there recently and I thought there were legitimate fairways on almost all the holes. Matt when you come to Houston I'm gonna drag you out to Army Trail before we check out my disc collection haha.

Also, have you guys played Little Egypt (the new course in Conroe)? I only played it in that C tier when the course opened a while back but I thought it was pretty fun.

Yep, long holes in the woods with narrow fairways, too many trees and no landing zones, heavy punishment in the rough and no chance for recovery. Little egypt is the same thing its just shorter, its a waste of time to play when you are that close to mcdade.

Army Trail sounds like the evil twin to Tom Bass with its 200 to 400 foot wide fairways. A mix is needed in your area for sure.

I've only played four on the list and 3 of them shouldn't even be on a list titled best of anything. Crossroads is way better than Lester Lorch and Towne Lake, and even Harry Myers IMO.

Last time I played Crossroads, I was unimpressed. It's okay, but I was in a mood when I played so, I doubt I got the joy out of it I should have.

William Cameron Park was fun when I played it. A lot of walking but fun none the less.

I also like Saddle Hills, though it could use teepads.
