Pros: - Great signs, including point to the next hole
- Superior tee boxes
- Nice range of open fields and tough tree shots
- Not crowded even on a Saturday afternoon
- While the lack of hills can't compete with Circle C or Searight, I had a blast
Cons: - In the spring, I bet it gets difficult with all the water
- Par 5 on Hole 10 seems rather forced
Other Thoughts: - Difficult to find, not sure if this is a pro or con

Can't wait to play again!
Pros: Great new course that values placement. A lot of the 400+ holes require you to land your disc in ideal spots in order to score well, which is something a lot of older courses in Austin don't have. You can't just throw your disc down the fairway and free lance it. Nice signs and teepads that point you in the direction of the next hole.
Cons: No benches, trashcans, or # on baskets. Some holes can be very muddy, so be prepared. This course is NOT beginner friendly and may turn newer players away from this sport. You can tell there is still some work to be done, so most of these cons will probably not be an issue in the future.
Other Thoughts: The creek that runs through the course is not as bad as some people have said in previous reviews. You can reach down and fish out most discs, and I played just after rain. If you want a course that forces placement then play here, if not go Zilker or Searight and have fun with the locals.

Pros: Individual holes a very well thought out with possible flight paths listed on the signs. Great variety of shots, forehand, backhand, hyzer, anni, flips, flex shots whatever. If you have thrown it before, plan to use it here. Signs are high quality and contain a lot of good info. Pay attention to the OBs marked on them Many are the creek and beyond. Lots of distance with some short holes to help bring your score back down if you take advantage of your birdie ops. Very nice cement tees for long AND short holes provided they are not covered in mud from the cards before you scraping their feet. I have been told that more direction signs are being mounted and on their way. this will be very helpful in a couple of spots if it is your first time out to this great course.
Cons: MUD. It hasn't rained in the last week, but I stayed out of the water all day and still had mud close to the knees of my jeans. 13 is a little tricky to find your first time around from 12. The signs have an arrow pointing in the direction of the next tee, but if you forget to make a note about it, you may end up wondering. The distance on 16 long box appears to be incorrect, my guess is low 200s. Nine and ten are about as far from your car as you can get so if you are trying to sneak in a half round for lunch and the course is busy, you may end up jumping in front of someone on the early turn. Finding this place the first time was tricky. The towing enforced signs are scary. The reserved parking lot and the visitor parking lot are the same lot but different entrances. I am still unsure where the correct place to park is.
Other Thoughts: Pay close attention to all the info on the signs. There is a lot there. It is easy to miss what is ob or where the next tee is
