Pros:
Secluded little course nestled on the Rice University campus flood control area. Baskets are double chain DGA's in good condition with number plates on top. Tees are marked with two wooden posts that have hole number and distance posted. This is a good beginner / REC player course with holes averaging ~220'. Good use of trees and anny lines to keep this from being too much of a pitch-and-putt course.
Cons:
When I played (Nov 7 2010) the tee posts for hole #4 had been pulled up and were resting against a tree. The tee marker distance said 255', but the tree where they were was 270' from the basket. Initially, I couldn't find any tee markers for hole #6 so I made up my own tee box. However, when walking to the basket I stumbled upon one of the broken 4x4's about 50' from the basket. The distance read 202' so it was clearly in the wrong spot and I moved the broken marker up under the basket in hopes that maybe someone who knows where it should be will re-plant it.

No convenient parking; all of the adjacent lots are University permit parking only. Tees are natural and have no consistency or maintenance. The course will most likely range from very muddy to under water after any reasonable rain. It looks like there is minimal landscaping done as the grass was pretty high. Spotter will help on hole #5.
Other Thoughts:
The course was completely redesigned in the last several years due to some construction projects. The old posted maps were 100% incorrect, so I've made a new map (posted on DGCR now) that should help first timers navigate.

It's hard to tell after my first time here if the course was more fun than I expected or the fun I had came from exploring the course trying to figure it out without a map. This is not a horrible course in dry weather and should be convenient for students wanting to learn the game or get in a quick round. But there are far better courses in the nearby vicinity for serious players.
