Pros: A freaking zip line across the Rio Grande River. Amazing. Land has been setup on a retreat including a worship area (hole 3) with a large 10 ft cross and benches. Hole 2 plays across and old can and bottle dumping ground. Sounds bad but is actually pretty cool. Course designer is a cool guy and is normally happy to play with you and show you the way.

You throw across the Rio Grande and then climb a cliff and zip line across. Then you play a few holes along the river and some creeks and throw back across. there is a latter you climb up and then zip line back. Crazy!
Cons: Frequently has some very high winds. Mix the high winds with a few very long holes and it can make for a nasty looking scorecard.

Rio Grande can empty your bag in a hurry when the water is high in early summer. He did say that most times of the year you can see your disk and wade out and get it.
Other Thoughts: You need hit up the course contact to play. He'll show you the course, bring the zip line gear, and show you how to use it. I'd recommend you wear shoes and not sandals because of hole 2.

Course maps in the mailbox!

Pros: A variety of terrain. Beautiful views. Plenty of room. Most baskets can be seen near the tees. Most tees can be seen from previous basket. Tees are metal fence stakes marked with orange tape. Alternate tees are marked with red or blue flags. Zip lines across the river and back are lots of fun.
Cons: Not yet fully developed. Tee pads do not have distance markers print out a score card. Bring some water.
Other Thoughts: Driving range put in on 17. Course record marked. Call ahead to make sure the zip line equipment is available.
