Pros: Dual tees allow you to choose your own difficulty. Smooth flowing course with open and wooded holes. Even the open holes have trees that need to be considered during throws.
Cons: A lot of the red tees have nice, concrete tees, whereas the blue tees are only dirt. It was stated before and the course does get muddy in spots very easily; however, the course counteracts this with dual tees and multiple approaches.
Other Thoughts: User friendly course, a bunch of regular disc golfers out there. Not a lot of people traffic to get in the way of any throws.

A Little Fun in Beaumont
Pros: This a well laid out decent course in the heart of the Golden Triangle. It boasts 2 very distinct tee positions and good double chained cages. The tee boxes are natural and for the most part in good shape. The course offers a good mix of holes ranging from tight corridor shots like 8,9,10, and some open holes like 4,11,12 finally there are some tricky boundry shots with 6,17,18 where going OB is a definite possibly. The course is on a nice piece of land and has loads of potential. The two different tee positions offer two very different experiences. With longs being quite challenging and the shorts being a pretty low stress, fun setup. The locals told me the course is never really busy and that getting in a quick round is quite easy.
Cons: Some of the alternate tee positions can be down right ridiculous with no clear line to the basket and almost no chance for a bird (the addition of different pars would solve this). Although the majority of teeboxes were well kept some were downright BAD, so watch your step. There are few holes where losing a disc is a distinct possibilty such as 6 when the water is higher and the corridor holes have heavy brush on both sides. The layout is a little confusing at first and be sure to print out a map before going. No real elevation to speak of, but it is in Beaumont so I wasn't really expecting any.
Other Thoughts: Being that Im not often in Beaumont and dont get to the play the courses there. I was excited when I heard they were hosting a tournment and immediatley signed up. I would say this course is about equal to alot of other courses in the Houston area and offers enough variety to be distinct in its own right. If your ever make a the trip down I-10 stop by, its definetly worth a round or two.

Pros: This course was fun to play. The park land is utilized well and the flow is fairly straightforward. There is a healthy mixture of open/wooded, short/long, lefty/righty holes. Probably my favorite hole would be 6. The pin placement creates an island hole effect and is not righty friendly. Loved it! Holes 10 and 13 were also memorable due to their technicality. The course is shady, with tall pines and small hills at some of the baskets. A creek comes into play on many holes.
Cons: Only complaint was the unmarked short tee on hole 14 but some locals were very friendly and helped us out. If I were the course manager my top list of things to do would be: install tee pads, get baskets straightened up a bit (i bet hurricane rita/ike had something to do with that), and update the tee signs.
Other Thoughts: The course map was on the billboard making it very easy to know how to navigate the course after taking a look at the flow. The short tees were fun, I can't wait to come back and play the long tees!
