Fun if you are close
Pros: -Short and sweet for quick round
-Designed well for such a small amount of land.
-Despite lack of length, still plenty of shots to try out.
-Easy to Navigate after finding hole one.
-Markers for each hole with map and distance.
Cons: -Swamp land after rain, T-Box, Fairways, Holes and everything around.
-Only 6 holes.
-No Cement T-Boxes
-Uneven T-Boxes and fairways make for difficult shots and some times dangerous shots if you aren't careful with your footing. (Almost twisted a knee off of 4 T-Box)
Other Thoughts: Over all the cons outweigh the pros to make this course worth any trip over 15 minutes.Even when you play this with Nottingham Park, it's still not worth the Gas money.
With that said, if you live near by or are in the area and are looking for a quick game. This course will serve you well. The design layout is extremely well done given the amount of land he had to use. You have the chances to use different shots and score a good round which can give you confidence going out to harder courses.
Number 6 is wide open and plays 495 ft which plays long compared to the rest of the holes which might hit 300 ft. It plays along a street so watch for cars, but it's good for practicing control.
Do not play this course after it rains. Made that mistake, feet got soaked, bugs were active, not a dry piece of land on the course. Would be a lot more fun if dry.

small but fun
Pros: there are lots of trees to make it a bit more difficult. good course to work on accuracy on your midrange disc. One nice long hole to finish it up.
Cons: only 6 holes. when it is slightly wet outside it gets muddy. short holes.
Other Thoughts: considering how small the land that this course is on it is as big as it can get. close to my work so i don't mind stopping by and throwing a round or two.

Nice job Jim
Nice little course on not much land. Excellent double chain Chainstar baskets. Tightly wooded course that forces you to hit a specific line to be in position for a '2' on almost every hole. Navigating the course was not hard even without a map. The tee signs are above average for Houston. Not much walking so it plays quickly. Good variety of shots. Nice basket location for the final finishing hole. Boxes are marked with the sign and two large bricks that are painted white for easy visibility.
Hole #6 plays very close to the street, so be careful as you're trying to throw that big 450' bomb. The tee boxes are rough and could use some smoothing. #4's box looks like it could be a big mud puddle after some rain.
For a good REC player the first five holes are all reachable with a good shot, and a good putt will get you the '2'. At over 450', with the basket on a hill and street OB, the last hole would be a good '3' for most REC players.
Better players will need a driver only on #6, the first five holes are mid-range/putter holes.
This is the type of course that after you play once you want to immediately shoot again because you know you can do better. ;-) Play three rounds here to get in 18 holes, or as was previously mentioned in other reviews head to Nottingham Park for 12 holes there.
It really is a good course for just six holes, but it's hard to rate a six-holer too high.
