quite a good course
Pros: This course is really about as good as it gets for what is available. There are many interesting shots that if you throw well, put you in a good position and if you have grip-lock, could put you in a world of hurt. Pretty decent shot variety. Several blind shots make for exciting rips. The more I play it, the more lines I find to the baskets so it doesnt get old. Well maintained course with few area where you have to walk on tall grass (unless you botched your throw.) Easy access to Mckinney Park across the highway if you want to get in another 9. The addition of holes 15, 16, and 17 in the back set will really help your score or really hurt it. Cool holes.
Cons: I really hated this course when I first moved here because, honestly, for someone who plays this course for the first time, it is easy to lose discs and easy to get cut up and dirty. There is a lot of "west texas/desert" foliage that can, and given the chance, will tear you up so be careful. The natural tee pads are a pain... if it ever does rain here, it muddies them up and people still throw from them making them very uneven as they dry. Concrete Tee pads are necessary and would make this course SOO much more enjoyable. They have recently marked the tee markers with distances for whatever that's worth. People can sometimes be a problem. Ive never hit anyone, but i sure have been close. Winter months they stock the pond with trout and people are constantly out there, so watch where you throw.
Other Thoughts: When i first started playing this course it was a challenging and a down right dirty course that frustrated me with it's lack of variety. After playing it probably 75 times, I have come to realize that it really is a great course and the designers have done everything possible to make it a fantastic course. It definitely could use better markers and some tee pads, but overall it is a very enjoyable course.. muuuuch better than Midland's course (no offense). My advice would be, dont just play it once. It gets more and more enjoyable each time you play it.

Pros: The course has holes in which you can display both long drives and skill. The course is not extremely busy and can be played in about an hour. There is also hole affectionately named the "A" hole which has no true line to the basket. This hole is between 14 and 15 and has a spray painted rock leading pointing to the tee box. (making the course 19 holes).
Cons: Course is difficult to navigate without a map or someone who has played it before leading the way. Holes 12- 16 are back in the brush and there are no signs leading to those baskets.
Other Thoughts: This course can be windy at times so you should plan accordingly. This is a good course for a town whose primary focus is football and the oil field.
