Pros: This is a very beautiful course around multiple small lakes.

Water is a huge factor on this course. You have to throw over two lakes. One hole's basket is on a peninsula surrounded by water. There are three holes where water is imediately to the left and since all backhand thrown discs fade left, good luck.

For a nine hole course there are some very long open holes that will test your arm.

This course is very fun if you have good control and distance. If you don't you could lose discs.

Cons: Not enough shade for Texas. Better in winter but then wind becomes a factor.

The first 7 holes have great flow and can be played in about 15 minutes. The last two holes take about 20 minutes because of the distance between holes, the crossing of a deep creek with no bridge between 8 and 9 and the distance back to the parking area and tee pad #1.

I did not play #9 because the sign says it is 300' just to get across the water.
Other Thoughts: A must play for the water shots.

Pros: Very well maintained, it provides a challenge for both beginner and advanced players. The course is well marked and the holes provide a lot of variety keeping the round interesting. Never crowded.
Cons: The course can be extremely frustrating. The water hazards can wreak havoc on your bag. they are deceivingly difficult. Disc retrieval is all but impossible in many of the holes dues to the depth of the water even only a few feet from the edge. The occasional sighting of cotton mouth snakes in and around the largest of the lakes also discourages recovery of the discs.
Other Thoughts: Hole # 7 is strangely difficult. It has claimed at least 13 discs to my knowledge 2 of which were my own PLAY THIS HOLE WITH CAUTION or loss of a disc is likely.

Pros: Overall a good course. Well-maintained course with adequate signs to orient the first-time player. Mostly open field allows for good driving practice.
Cons: Water hazards here are treacherous. In two rounds on the nine holes here, the four lakes claimed four of my discs. I have never lost a disc on any other course but this one. Also, par is difficult to make on these long holes.
Other Thoughts: If you don't want to lose $52 in discs in one day like me, then play safely and avoid the water at all costs. Especially be aware on hole #7 which can be very cruel. On this hole try to aim right or throw a forehand if you're a righty. I have heard of at least 12 discs lost on this hole.
