Pros: There is parking right by the first and last holes. The designer made use of all the land that he could. This course was really fun. I used it as a little warm up to the Comanche courses. It wasn't difficult but it allow you to throw some nice hyzer shots to get loose. The DISCatcher baskets were in great shape. I liked how nothing was too long and nothing was to short.On the tee pads was the hole number, distance, and a little hole map showing where the basket laid.
Cons: The course was a little hard to navigate because of no signs. I realize dave brooks said the city won't allow it but it doesn't change the fact that it is still difficult to find your way around. The place was completely flooded with trash. Also, many of the tee pads were cracked. When throwing on hole 1, the baskete sits right beside the playground which is a major safety issue.
Cons: This course looks like it has past its prime. You have to be careful walking because of the numerous holes hidden in the grass. Very easy to step in one and hurt yourself. Many of the concrete tee pads were broken down and very uneven. There is no map to the place so it is almost impossible to follow in sequence. In general it looks like a course that has great potential but is just run down now.
Other Thoughts: It looks like this could be a good course if someone was willing to put the time, money, and effort in it.

Unassumingly Great Little Course
Pros: First - This is the course I grew up playing since its first inception in 1991. It was designed by my dad, Greg Brooks. It was one of the first 3 courses in West Texas and it has grown from a nine-hole "tone-pole" (poles with a larger cylinder welded on top that made a humming tone when you hit it) course to a sometimes 13-pin tournament course. It has 27 tees that are made up of 3 separate nine-hole courses (front, back, alternate). There are also a few local courses (safari, reverse and reverse-safari). The course is in an old run-off tank and has many large trees as well as some open field. Now the list of Pros:
- Great use of the area given.
- Holes are simple and double-digit under rounds are a plus.
- Although Simple, trees can catch your disc and wind is a great factor.
- No holes are the same.
Cons: - No tee signs (City won't allow them).
- Front and Back nine flow well, but Alternate nine will require a guide.
- Overlooked because of the popularity of Big Spring's second course - Comanche Trail.
Other Thoughts: I will forever love this course because of the memories. I played it for the first time in a few years a couple months ago and I found it much more enjoyable than I remember. I recommend it for anyone passing through looking for a quick round. Nine holes take 35 minutes by yourself.

Pros: Some length and a variety of shots. Lots of shade which is nice in the summer.
Cons: This course is located in a low water area and can flood and get nasty after a good West Texas rain. It can be a little hard to navigate at first.
Other Thoughts: You have to play the other 27 hole Big Spring course if you play this one.
