Pros: Home course throughout college. I've played more rounds than I can count at this course. Relatively short course with good use of park space. Great scenery during summer months!
Cons: None
Other Thoughts: Great course that can be easily be played between classes.

Pros: -Nice park area, and the course doesn't run in to many pedestrians.
-Shot variety, both long and short, treed and open
-Right next to the campus for your A&M goers.
-Nice water hazards
-Good windy practice course
-Clean and well kept
Cons: -Wind, if you don't like playing in it.
-No concret t-pads
-If you throw in one of their ponds, say bye bye disc...they're about 6 feet deep right on the edge, so sais my Aggie brother.
-Not a very long course, though well suited for it's location
Other Thoughts: Really cool course. Has some shot variety ranging from wide open bombs to treed shorter shots, nothing to complicated. Spotty trees through-out the entired course with spotty water hazards as well.

Fun course to play, worth your time.

Pros: Very diverse. On the A&M campus so very well kept.
Cons: Tee box's and pole holes not in prime condition. Not mapped out clearly so at times hard to navigate around the course.

Pros: This course is very open and allows for different approaches to the pins. The course provides a wide range of holes, from short technical shots in and around tree hazards and over water to long-distance shots with gradual terrain elevation changes. The property is mowed and maintained well. There are also two tees to choose from - beginner and advanced/pro. This course is very pretty and easy to traverse.
Cons: Tees are not marked well and finding some of the tees for the back nine were difficult for the first time. One water hazard (large pond crossing) provided no alternate tee for beginners. Some of the tees lacked sufficient designation of whether they were beginner or advanced (there may not have been alternate tee placement on some holes).
Other Thoughts: This is a good course worth playing. The lack of signage made it difficult to find some of the holes, but if you follow the mashed down grass away from the pin it helped in locating the next hole. The water hazards were good challenges - bring a floating disc is you are not a strong thrower yet. There is no swimming in the ponds so getting your disc back if it gets wet may be a problem. Overall, a fun course with a large variety of hole challenges. Oh, the first tee is just off the side of the road as you enter the park. There is not a parking lot to designate the #1 hole, so you have to park on the road.
