Pros: This USED TO BE a great "chip and putt" set of 9 links where one could forget about driving, and focus on long up shots and putts.

In many ways, these links were tighter and more demanding than many courses around Houston because anything above two strokes meant you got something wrong.
Cons: At this point, this is no longer really a course. The University Facilities group has been radically over-hauling the flood easement into which the course was built, and they have done this at the expense of, and without regard for, the course.

Basket 1 is missing.
Basket 8 is missing.

Many tee posts have been knocked over by mowers.

Plants have been grounded smack in the middle of the #2 tee box.

The under-growth is often left so long that even when you know where your throw went, you can lose a disc.

#5 is a blind throw to the basket which means you're almost certain to lose a disc unless you have someone watching for you.
Other Thoughts: If anyone has any sway with either the university Facilities staff or with the univeristy DG club, it would be nice if they could make it known if they intend to maintain the course, replace the course, remove the course entirely, relocate the course to elsewhere on campus.

As it stands, this is not a course. There were only nine links to begin with and at this point only four or five are playable.
