Nice Course in a Place I Didn't Expect It
Pros: Nice new Discatcher baskets. Textured concrete tee pads. Good signs with maps and distances. It is easy to follow the flow of the course.
This course uses the property well with a variety of pin placements. In addition to a few baskets in the open, there are baskets on hillsides, baskets surrounded by trees, baskets near water and baskets near the road. There is a variety of hole lengths and a good mixture of lefty and righty-friendly drives. Most holes have obstacles to avoid and a few play like a forested course, requiring a well-selected line off the tee to make it through the trees. My favorite hole is #15, which plays about 250' between trees and across water to a basket with water behind it and to the right of it.
Cons: There are three main cons to this course: 1. The tee pads are very small. I don't take much of a run-up, but they are too short for me. 2. Several of the tees are very close to the previous basket, which would be troublesome with several groups playing the course. 3. If the park were busy with picnickers and kids on the playgrounds, an errant throw could cause big problems in many places on the course.
Other Thoughts: Nice restroom facilities on site and two high-quality playgrounds for kids that might be along for the ride. It is a beautiful park, with water and a scenic bridge. Junction is a great place to stop and stretch on a long drive through this part of Texas. I am happy to see a nice course there! I started off by rating this course at three stars, but after reflecting on the review I have written, I am bumping it up to 3.5. Play this course if you are in the area!
