Pros: -This is what disc golf is all about. A practice basket, cement tee pads, nice baskets, great tee signs just scratch the surface of what this course has to offer.
- The first few shots are your typical shorter, no obstacle shots that most Houston players are used to playing. But once you get to #5 the easy part is long gone. Each hole has a different approach to dogleg lefts to dogleg rights, every tee shot is different.
If you are one that enjoys scenic walks through nature, it does not get much better then this. There are a few long walks in between holes but you are walking through a very scenic forest that feels very peaceful.
There is a little bit of elevation. In Houston, that is really all you can ask for is just a bit.
There are benches, trash cans, and brooms for sweeping off the tee pads at almost every hole.
There are legitimate par 4's. 500' with an S-curve through the woods is a lot more exciting then 600' bomb in the open.
Cons: There is some old chairs and other appliances in the middle of a few fairways that sort of make the course look a bit trashy.
There are no bathrooms or water on the course so pack lots of water to fight the Texas heat.
Other Thoughts: This really is the prime destination in Houston. Combine this with Windwood and you have yourself a good duo up in northwest Houston. This is not a place to bring beginners as they will get frustrated easily, but even for the most expedienced players this will be a course to test your skill and your wit.
If you are in the Houston area this is an absolute must play.

Pros: Holes 1-4 are wide open so get your birdies early. Love the baskets up high, utilizing tree stumps on 5 and 7. Holes 5-11 play through some tight alleys with plenty of trees to obstruct. They are all well designed but OH so very tight! Hole 11 has an awesome ending down into a gully. Hole 12 is across a small stream and is one of the few birdie holes (my only one!) #13 is 190ft with a river to the left. If you miss trees then you will play well. If you seem to always find wood, it makes for a long day. Hole 18 is one of the best in Houston.
Cons: Very few Cons actually. A few dead trees and vines that need to come down still. Other than that, just spectacular. Figure 2.5 hrs for a twosome.
Other Thoughts: I loved this course. Played it Monday in the drizzle and was so impressed, I had to play it today (Thursday) in the sunshine just to get a TRUE feel for it. The course is a tad long for those who love ace runs, but its an incredible journey through the woods. This course will someday be one of the Crown Jewels of the Houston Disc Golf scene.

Pros: Difficulty, ranges from direct shots around 300ft or so to s curved , raised baskets embedded in tree stumps, throwing through thin trees and vines and blind corners. Largest elevation changes in houston. Your in the woods under shady treetops from hole 5-18. The course headmaster is constantly there cutting down trees and upkeeping the course. Ontop of that he is a kind fellow that is welcoming and willing to help you through the course.Hyzer and Anhyzer hole variation...sometimes on the same hole (yes some holes are that long). This is an advanced players course.
Cons: Teepads are marked by cement markers,which on a couple holes are a tad difficult to spot. Im positive that is going to change in time. I have been questioned by an officer why I was there.(I just explained I was golfing with a couple of friends and then directed him to chuck, the course upkeeper,laborer, and inside personnel. All was fine after)CON LOL.
Other Thoughts: There is no con large enough to not come here. It is lengthy yes,and I have said not a beginners course yes,but if you wanted to become a well rounded, and an overall better player, you gotta come here to do it. There are things at this course you may not ever again experience in Texas .I come from Michigan where elevation change and woods are an every course thing. And to have it so close to home now living in Houston is wonderful.
THANKS CHUCK! And everyone that made donations by cash and labor. This course is excellent.
