If a wide open course is your thing - then this is a great course to test out your new driver without having to worry about banging it up or losing it in the drink. Each of the holes are marked with signs showing yardage although the yardage is way off compared to the laser-sighted yardage stated on the site. (Note the picture for hole one as an example)
The course is stroller friendly and there is an enclosed playground near hole one for the kids.
For what the course has become - the flow is good. You have to walk across a parking lot to get to hole eight, but there is a big sign on seven showing the way, and nine pin is located right back at the parking area. If you live in the Katy area, and don't want to drive into town, this is an okay course to satisfy your needs - I would compare it to the Missouri City Community Park
course in Missouri City.
BEST HOLE/S: #1; #9
Cons: There are few bumps in the land, but this is a flat straightforward course that is mostly grip and rip. There wasn't much imagination in the new design.
Whatever idiot placed the pins needs to be slapped upside the head and shown the technical specifications for the proper height requirement of a pin. Some of the baskets can't be more than a foot and half off the ground. They are noticeably bad.
WORST HOLE/S: #5; #6; #7
Other Thoughts: The last time I played Crosspoint was during Hurricane Rita, and it was a bizarre and rough 18-hole course. The back nine played in the tall grass back behind the church and was missing some pins. The front nine played almost entirely in the treed area out front - and was an insanely tight pinball course. Needless to say - it was a poor experience at best.
With that in mind I had high hopes the updated 9-hole course could redeem the previous 18-hole debacle. However, I was sadly disappointed. This really isn't a bad course if you have nothing to compare it too, but I entire time I played, I just kept wondering why they couldn't incorporate a few more of the trees in the front area by holes one & four. It just seems like a waste to go to so much effort to redo an entire course, and not be a little more imaginative with they used the land. Again - if I lived in the area, I would still play it, but I wouldn't recommend to anyone to go out of their way to play this course.

Not bad for a quick afternoon game
Pros: Great course for Beginners to learn the basics of throwing a disk and getting it in the basket. This is because the holes aren't too tough and there is little vehicle or pedestrian traffic to worry about. The course is laid out well and tee boxes and baskets are easy to find with very informative tee markers.
Cons: Technically not very challenging, I only had to throw one anhyser(righty) and that was more out of choice than necessity. As mentioned before, some of the baskets aren't regulation height and that can be annoying and really mess with your putting stroke (not so good for beginners). The tee box on #7 is difficult to throw from.
Other Thoughts: Not a bad course to get in a quick 9 after work and before dinner and it's the only course in Katy.
