Worth the Drive
Pros: Great mix of technical shots and open holes. There are some holes where you have more than one possible route to the basket. Water in play at several points, plenty of elevation changes. In a public park, but the course has its own territory there and people using other facilities do not hinder play.
Cons: The tee pads are too short and better signage is needed.
Other Thoughts: Be careful not to throw your up shot into a cactus!

Pros: Beautiful course. Elevation changes. Great mix of Long tosses, short turns, open shots and tree threading. Both amateur and pro tees.
Cons: Lots of cactus, watch out... not stroller/Cart friendly. Nice bridges over creeks, but this course is nowhere near pedestrian. Dont even try to play if it has rained unless you really like mud.
Other Thoughts: Some temp signs up right ow, but I hear nice signs like pease are being made right now. Easy to follow. I totally agree with Sidewinding, my fav course in austin followed by wilco. Its out of the way, but its north.

Pros: This course is very scenic. The rugged Texas hill country terrain with live oak, mesquite, prickly pear, etc. is just beautiful. It would be a great nature hike even if you did not play disc golf.
Concrete tee pads are a rare but welcome sight around Austin but (see con 1)
The new signs are in and they are amazing.
Both pro and amatuer tee pads make this course fun for all skill levels.
There are many cool stairways and bridges throughout to help you cross the dozens of small creeks that meander through the course.
Most of the holes are fairly technical with many straight and narrow, or blind curving fairways. If you don't throw forehand this course will force you to learn. If you don't throw backhand this course will force you to learn.
If you don't hit the fairway don't expect to have a shot to the basket. The rough is very dense, rugged, and thorny.
Cons: 1) The teepads are too short. I didn't measuse but they look to be about 5'x7'. They could have used less concrete and made them 4'x8' and you would'nt feel like you have be extra careful and shorten your x-step on every throw.
2) Some of the holes have quite a long walk between them. One in particular is about 300-400yards to the next teepad with signs about every 100 yards reassuring you that you are still going in the right direction.
Other Thoughts: Now that the new signs are in this is the best course in the Austin area.
