Pros: Very convenient for Rice students.
Cons: -When I last played this course, parts of it were underwater.
-Some areas of the course are overgrown. Reaching the first basket requires climbing through the brush.
-Slight danger to pedestrians and bikers traveling back and forth from the medical center.

Pros: This is a short little 8 hole course on a flood plain at Rice University. The course can be played easily in 20-30 minutes and that may be taking it slow.

Unlike other small nine hole courses, this course actually has trees and obstacles to contend with that are around most holes.

The baskets are all in great shape, probably due to the lack of play because it seems as if no one is ever here.

This is a great place to practice your approaches and putting and a good place to bring a person that has never played before.
Cons: The first hole is on it's side in a big pile of trash to make this nine hole course only eight holes.

Most of the wooden tees are gone, so my buddy and I just played near the previous basket and it seemed to work fairly well.

Apparently the course is usually overgrown and it was severely overgrown by hole #3. I can see the course being flooded or soggy after a decent rain.

There is a bike trail that goes around the course and most biker/walkers probably have no idea that the course exists so be careful where you throw.
Other Thoughts: Maybe i caught the course on a good day but I see no reason to give this course any less then a "passable" rating. Sure it is not the next host of the world championships but it is a good short course that actually has obstacles to contend with.

The main thing I see that would make this course even better then just passable is having someone "adopt" the course and put in work with tee signs and keep the area well groomed. If someone takes action this could be a good 9 holer and not just another course that is overlooked.

Pros: No one was there, small course that is convient to the Med Center
Cons: Overgrown , wear pants if you go . It looks like they have done some work there and there was a large mud field in the middle.
Other Thoughts: I work near by and would use it if it was mowed .
