Pretty fun, but wet
Pros: +Long or medium length holes with clearly defined fairways, with small islands of ROUGH to play around. The varied cover limits routes in a good way.
+Use of terrain forces specific lines, but still gives you multiple routes.
Cons: -Like much of texas, its flat, so after a whole day of rain previous, lots of the course was under atleast an inch of water.
-The rain results in pond overflow, which causes a run-off ditch/creek to come up, which precludes use of one of the tee pads (due to excessive long walk to get the normal route's landing area).
-Some of the holes were wide open on the sides, giving you room for error, but as a result, not forcing you to hit a particular line.
Other Thoughts: A great course, it was lots of fun! Despite the long holes, there were lots of Buzzz shots.
Too bad you have to be a development resident to play there, but the guys I met up with were great, and I had a ton of fun. Thanks to JRW III for showing my around! Wish my neighborhood had its own DG course!

Bored Soccer Moms
Pros: Course is big, well maintained, has a nice layout, tee pads are excellent. The park is beautiful with lots of trees and a couple lakes.
Cons: Some soccer Moms with nothing better to do have taken it upon themselves police the course and find out if you are a resident of Bridgeland or not. I believe that the more people that play a course, the better that course becomes. This course is mostly flat and the distances are too long to be a par 3.
Other Thoughts: Soccer Moms should start to fill some of their vast time with playing disc golf so that they will stop chasing off peaceful players.

championship caliber course
Pros: -well maintained, semi private course with water fountains, bathrooms, big trapezoidal concrete pads and nice signs
-Some great holes here that require smart play because of the length and the rough, lay ups abound on some of the holes to get the 3. This is especially apparant on the front nine (3,4,5) as it is longer, a bit more open, but with pockets of rough to avoid.
-No real elevation "changes" here, but some cool elevation play around the spillway holes. 6 for instance has a cool lay up spot over the spillway, or risk it and go big to get across the spillway on the basket side.
-Nice use of the lake to mess with the mental part of your game. You don't actually throw over it, except on hole 8, but if your disc gets flippy, it's in trouble.
-The baskets by the lake are very well placed on the edge of the slope down to the lake, good, safe upshots are paramount.
-Back nine rounds out the course by being shorter and very tight on some holes. Add to that the thickness of the rough, and it is very risk-reward.
Cons: -A couple throw away holes here namely 1 which is just kind f long with one tree in the way and 12 which is long and flat, no trees with the spill way in play on the upshot.
-The water holes are all rhbh friendly from the whites. It's hard to change that up, but I think it could have been done.
-Multiple teepads were not able to be found.
-Course is flat as a board
Other Thoughts: -Overall this is a very good course, I like the fact that it is private. It keeps the riffraff off the course, and allows it to be underused and therefore really nice looking. I do think it could benefit from being a pay to play which would essentially do the same thing as keeping it private but allow for it to be more utilized. JRWIII was a great guide for this course as well as being a nice guy. Overall the group consensus was that this was the second best course we played on the Houston trip, just a bit above Links, and below Shawshank, although JB CH will be a better course than Oak when it's done.
