Pros: This course has it all! From shooting along the bayou, to numerous elevation changes, to sidehill pins, to low canopies, you will get a little bit of everything here. With so much going on, you will need a variety of shots. Also, there is a nice balance of left to right, right to left holes, with only one wide open hole (number 4).

The designers did a good job of using the land here. You really get the feeling that the land itself dictated the layout of the course. Beginners may find this course too much to handle, but it offers returning players lots of challenges!
Cons: No doubt that lots of discs are lost on this course, with all the water. Hole #6 is especially challenging with a tunnel shot over water. A lot of times I might even skip this one.

This is Houston, so it can be HOT in the summer! And if you play more than a round or two, you will start feeling all the elevation changes in your legs.

The DG course runs along a jogging/walking path, so at any time of day there will be people using the path. If it's a busy time of day, this might mean waiting at some tees before it's clear.
Other Thoughts: A fun and challenging course that offers returning players enough to keep them interested.

Pros: Nice elevation, good variety of anhyzers and hyzers, great design and flow.

Well thought out alternate tees as well for an 18 hole experience.

Really makes you shape your shots and placement is key due to many baskets on slopes and the risk of rolling away into the bayou. This course is 'technical' in all the right ways and does not use gimmics or ridiculous tunnel shots to make a challenge. Instead, you are challenged with moderate distance and shot placement with elevation in play on most holes.

Best holes - 1, 3 and 9 (reg & alt)
Cons: The skatepark is the main con at this location as the whole park is sometimes crawling with skater rats. This used to be a peaceful and quiet park dedicated only to disc golf, now feels somewhat like skateboarding is the priority.
Other Thoughts: The course is planned to be expanded to 18 holes in the next few years and I would say it would be the top faciliy in the Houston area when this occurs.

Pros: very safe(helicopter patrolled) clean well maitained park , great finesse course not too hard too shot even here or hit birds but enough bogey chances to keep better players interested.

there are plenty of chances to turn easy shots and guaranteed birds and pars into holy crap how did i shoot a 5or 6 on that hole moments and turn a i think im gonna shoot my record on this round into i think im gonna have to play another round after this.

Weekdays before 3 the place is all yours. and i know the long over the river hole seems impossible in the summer but in winter/fall it opens up
Cons: you wont be able to get back most water shots,
Other Thoughts: stick to the regular tees its a 9 hole deal with it if you wanna play 18 go to mac gregor ,just make sure you bring a gat;}
Great course to bring just fairway and a putter , also look out for the pond on #2 you might not realize your first time there is water there and even a good shot can end up rolling down into it and most of the time its not clear enough to see into.
