OK for beginners

Pros: There are a few nice technical shots in the trees that I like.
Plenty of ace runs.
It's in a nicer neighborhood.
Good course for beginners, or intermediates+ looking to work on midrange game.
Cons: Much like the nearby Wilco course, it is very rocky! Don't take your sweet CE stuff out there, swap out for regular champ or star plastic before you go. Trust me.
Cat Hollow has the worst course flow/design in the Austin area, just taking the trophy over Northtown in Pflugerville.
Eventually you are basically criss-crossing back and forth across the drainage ditch on several holes during the back nine, and playing across or near the fairways to other holes.
it feels very repetitive somehow. Probably because most of the holes are pretty short and not very challenging for Advanced players.
Hole #18 is about as bland a final hole as I can remember, medium range hyzer for a RHBH thrower, and you are blind to the basket so you can't even see it if you ace. #17 would be a much better final hole.
Your skills will plateau at a low level if you do not play tougher courses than this.
Other Thoughts: If you like technical woods course and are in the area, go play Brushy Creek Sports Complex (9-hole course) instead.
If you want a much better designed, more challenging, and much longer Advanced-level course, go play nearby at Wilco instead.
In my opinion, this is one of the lowest rated overall 18-hole courses in the Austin area along with Benbrook. Sorry guys, that's just my opinion. I know beginners tend to really enjoy this place and I don't mean any offense to ya if you like it.
Beginners should play here instead of Brushy Creek Nine.

Pros: Pretty fun course. There's a little bit of shot variety. Tee pads were in so they're solid. Signs are nearly vandal proof, but not particularly informative. I loved the landscaping on some of the greens.
Cons: A little too easy, not a whole lot of challenge. Terrain is a little gnarly, and cedars aren't very forgiving (although you really shouldn't get in them much at all). A couple tees are a little tricky to find. Not sure where these elevation changes are, maybe some nuances, but there aren't any hills.
Other Thoughts: It is what it is, a fun little neighborhood 18 holer. I'd love to have it in my backyard, but it's not much more than a 3 or 4 disc course. Just keep in mind the overall flow. 1-8 play away from the parking lot and 9-18 play toward the parking lot. And you never cross the walking trail on the right.
