Great Local Course
Pros: I am mostly happy that we have a close by 18 hole course now. I do like the signature island hole the most but I like the challenge the other holes have to offer. Layouts of most of the holes force players that want to finish at par or under to use different throws. Shooting the same way on every hole will make you pay in strokes. The park is great considering there is almost no non disc golfers at anytime and there are two nice bathroom buildings located in good spots for the course.
Cons: Mostly I hate the walk from basket to tee on some holes. I especially do not like hole 6 because water holds easily in spots leading up to this hole and on the fairway of hole 6 as well. Normally this wouldn't bother me too much, but after dealing with mud and water on the first holes then the openess, and length of hole 6 and the long walk from the basket to tee 7. Dont get me wrong though, hole 6 is great when the course is dry because it adds to the challenge of making you throw a little different than whats usual of most holes (usually on a hole you don't need to try and throw as far on the second throw as you did on the first). Also the mesquitoes are horrible out there in warm weather.
Other Thoughts: I hoped this course would be better than it is at first but TLV DGC has grown on me. Now I play this course just as much as Mac Gregor and for me that is saying a lot because both courses are about the same distance from where I live and the people I play with are always at the Mac. When I finish 18 holes on most courses I want to play again but not here. This course for me is for some reason way more exhuasting than any other course that I play in Houston. As for the last review saying that this is the best course in houston, I feel like that is an overstatement. This is a great course for anyone just looking to play a new course and an awesome course for locals to have for practice or fun without having to go far to get it. Once the tee pads and a few benches are in I think this park will be much better and be able to compete with top Houston courses.

Pros: Its a beautiful course with each hole presenting a different challenge. Currently, has grass tee boxes. It is a brand new park. This course should pretty much put Seabrook's course out of commission. The park itself reminds me of macgregor park without all the non disc golfers. It is also more challenging. Holes 6 and 11 have to be considered the signature holes on the course. Best course in the houston area and its only been open one day.
Cons: Some of the tee pads are close to the previous pin. Day one and we already had someone in our group get hit in the head by an incoming drive. The wooden markers for the tee box are a little high.
Other Thoughts: This course has tons of potential.
