Pros: -This is a six hole course on a few acres of land at a nice church real easy to find off of I-10.
-The course is empty. I am not sure how many people know this course exists. I have never seen anyone else play here.
-The baskets are all in great shape. The tee signs are all there which is a huge pro when it comes to Houston disc golf. The design and flow of the course runs well, with only six holes navigation is not a problem.
-The last hole is unique in the sense that it is much longer and has a small hill at the end of the hole. It is easily the best hole on the course and sticks in my memory the most.
Cons: -Because this course is only six holes it does not see a lot of love. Hole 3-4 is very overgrown, not to the point of unplayable but it is a bit annoying.
-The first five holes are all very repetitive and straight forward. A serious disc golfer would not spend a lot of time here because this course is simply too easy and not challenging. However, little can be done with the course with the land that it is on.
Other Thoughts: Usually, when I go play short courses like this I will bring just a midrange and a putter and this course proves that that is all you need. It might be a bit hard to get par on #6 with just a midrange but it is a good challenge!
Like said in previous reviews, this would be a good course to go and play along with Nottingham Park for a full 18.

A little more work to do - but good fun.
Pros: Each hole is marked with a sign showing the hole number, hole layout, and yardage - while these are not Houck quality sings, there are a step up compared to most Houston course signage. The course also flows well, but a painted spoke from hole one to two would be nice.
Most holes are tightly wooded, and with many slight doglegs right, RHBH throwers are forced to really think through disc and shot selection. Pars aren't that hard to get, but a player must really work for a birdie.
With all of the growth, this would be a good course to play in the hot Houston summers since only hole six isn't shaded. Right now this is also a good course if you don't like competing with crowds of people.
BEST HOLE/S: #2
Cons: The tee boxes are natural, and therefore are very uneven on soft ground, so a player needs to watch their footing.
Some of the holes (i.e. hole 2) are still too rough and wooded, but it's basically one person doing all of the clearing. Other areas just need some general course maintenance, and this course looks like it has the real potential to get muddy.
WORST HOLE/S: #1
Other Thoughts: Obviously having only six holes on a small piece of land will limit this course from ever being anything great, but the overall feel, shaded areas, and use of the trees to shape each hole are decent. It was also nice on hole six to be able to open up and bomb a shot, even though everything fifty feet to right is O.B. You can tell the designer really wanted a hole on top of the little hill to add some extra challenge at the end.
I wouldn't call this a good stand-alone course, but with having 12 holes at Nottingham Park only a few miles away, a person could play both courses to get in a full 18 holes of solid golf. Also, if a player plays both courses together, they will appreciate the differences in it's hole designs that much more.
