Pros: UPDATED REVIEW (12.25.2009):
Course is placed on a beautiful track of Texas Hill Country, loads of Oaks and Cedar trees everywhere. Drastic elevation changes, as well as a creek that runs through the first 3 holes of the course, a second creek that runs through hole 13, and a clearly defined mini-lake on holes 17 and 18. I haven't seen a nicer overall concept for a course in the Austin area yet. This course simply has it all. I'm a huge fan of what John Houck has done here, as well as adding the two bonus holes (A and B) that give you the steepest uphill shot I've ever thrown, to be complimented with a breath taking view from B's teebox overlooking the entire park. This course goes beyond technical to outright skill, and is a challenege for every skill level. I highly recommend this truly amazing course to EVERYONE! Once this course is finished I think it will be an utterly amazing addition to the Austin Disc Golf Scene.
Cons: UPDATED REVIEW (12.25.2009):
I really can't think of a con for the course itself, the Red (Amateur) boxes aren't in yet, so I haven't had the chance to play from them and see if there is anything I do not like, but I doubt it on a course level. The only true con I can give about this course is probably going to end up being the parking lot. This course isn't even opened yet and I've played it about 5 times, and the last two times I've shown up the parking lot was completely full. Other than that, this is a truly amazing course.
Other Thoughts: - I'm not sure but I think the installation of hole 1's Amateur box is on the wrong side of the fairway, based on what the tee sign shows, I'm not 100% sure, just going to have to wait until it's finished.
- Just can't wait for this course to be done.
