Pros: The course has great hill country views. The back 9-mainly #11 has a few good looks back towards Onion Creek/Driftwood area.
Cons: Lugging around an icechest thru the ups and downs of the rocky terrain might be tough. Getting to the 1rst tee and back from 18 to the clubhouse is quite a haul. But there is an area to park further up from the clubhouse. With all the rocks I can see a twisted ankle waiting to happen. Hard to knock a course because of it's natural terrain though. The rocks win every time versus the discs so expect the discs to take a beating.
Other Thoughts: After playing the Shire course on a hot sunny day my legs were pretty much dead when I was done. This was one of the best workouts I've ever had playing.

Pros: With Country Club in the name, I went expecting to find beautiful manicured fairways of lush green grass bordered by huge trees. That is not what I found. I found a rock littered terrain with juniper and scrub oak trees growing out of rugged hills and canyons of exposed limestone and caliche.
There are three tee locations for most holes.
Most of the tee locations have nice concrete tee pads that are wider at the back than the front.
There are no signs but you get a color map and scorecard when you check in. There are colored rocks everywhere that lead you to the next tee. It you're playing the Championship tees you follow the blue rocks to the teepad with blue rocks beside it. If it's a shared tee the rocks beside it will be blue and white or even red white and blue if that hole has only one tee location.
There is a good variety of open and technical holes and left, right, straight shots.
There are a few cool elevated pin positions on what appear to be terraced greens but are actually natural rock formations.
There are some very memorable elevation drop shots on this course.
Hole 9 finishes back at the start so you could visit the car at the halfway point or just play a quick front or back nine holes.
Cons: We had to skip #10 because there were people camping on the fairway. There was an RV parked in the fairway on #11 but we threw over it.
Most of the holes are blind from the blue tees so first timers will have to walk ahead and then back to tee.
No teesigns and no Par on map.
At $10.00 per person I won't be taking the family here very often.
Due to the screening nature of the cedar trees combined with the camo effect of the white rock, it's easy to loose discs (especially white one's) on the holes where there is no fairway and you have to throw over the top. I found three premium plastic discs the last time I played.
The exposed rock will eat up your discs.
Other Thoughts: I would not want to play this course in the heat of the summer.

Pros: 2 courses to choose from. A Beautiful clubhouse to relax in. Well taken care of.
Cons: Non to many other than the long drive to get there.
Other Thoughts: Play the flat course first because the hill course will kick you in the butt.
