Pros: Never crowded. Wide open course. The hills on 6 to 9 make things a little interesting. Good practice course,or if you live in the area and don't want to drive far to play a round. Good course for beginners.
Cons: Very windy. Missing basket on #6 , just a pole. # 8 is almost in the ground. Really needs an update.
Other Thoughts: This course is alright if you are in the area and want to practice your game. Most of the locals look at you funny because it seems none of them see to know what disc golf is. It looks like this was a really nice course at one time, with a nice map and nice signs, but it looks like it has fallen by the way side. If this course was cleaned up and redesigned , it would be a cool course again.

Looking Better These Days
UPDATED review after 2010 redesign to 10 holes.
Decent tee markers are easily visible. Baskets are mostly single chain DISCatchers with a few newer double chain ones. The ten holes are all primarily flat with a couple baskets placed on very small hills that add some putting challenge to a few holes. Course does not favor RHBH players like many others do. Decent mix of anny and straight shots. Most basket have a spoke painted pointing you to the next tee box. Ample parking and restroom facilities on site.
A few holes play close to the walking/jogging trail around the lake, be careful when you throw as this trail is heavily used. Two of the holes throw along the edge of the park bordered by a street, again don't throw into oncoming traffic. Lots of ducks and geese to avoid, including their droppings. The current 10-hole configuration ends on the opposite side of the lake for a long walk back to your car; hopefully this will be remedied in a couple months.
The original course was pulled when a softball complex was installed in 2009. The entire course was redesigned utilizing the area around the lake.
The course is planned to expand to a full 18 holes making a complete loop around the lake. A mini tournament was held with temp baskets on the proposed holes #11-18 and some of them will be challenging for tight lines or long distances.
Hole #10 is a fun little gutsy hole at ~175' with water on the left and behind the basket making Ace runs at it virtually guaranteed to get wet.
I've heard this course is typically windy, but the couple times I've played (May & Feb) it wasn't bad.

Pros: Practice in wind. Signs marking course. It's a disc golf course!
Cons: Only 9 holes. Baskets tend to disappear (stolen?). Not a lot of variety. Rarely many people playing so you are usually the only person out on the course.
Other Thoughts: Any DG course is fine by me, but don't expect to see the gem of the Houston area.
