Pros: Good tee pads for gravel. They are nice and long and level and framed by rocks set level with the ground.

Each tee has a large boulder with hole # engraved and then painted on it so the course is very easy to follow.

With all the technical courses in the Austin area, a more open course like this is refreshing. It makes a good compliment to Wilco.

Due to the multiple tee per basket design, it's hard for me not to view this course as a nine holer even though it's technically eighteen. That being said, it's one of the nicest nine hole courses you will find anywhere.

The huge boulders, the rock picnic tables, the stone henge inspired sculpture by the pond, and the large spraying fountain give this course an other worldly feel which makes it a pretty cool place to throw plastic.

The water holes are more for fun than a challenge unless you're a six year old. If anyone finds a yellow unmarked DX Gator in the pond, my son would love to have it back.
Cons: The multiple tees per basket design is pretty silly but I guess if this is your local couse it will help you not get bored with the same old nine holes.

Baskets are not marked with hole # so first timers will have to make a choice on which basket to throw at on a few holes.

There is no map available.

Distances are not posted.

Two holes seem to share not only a tee but also a basket unless one was missing. That's why marked baskets and/or a map would be nice.

The only technical requirement is wind and avoiding the road that encircles the park.

There is a large sign as you turn into the park that says PRIVATE. I'll let you know when I get arrested.
