Short and Sweet? No. Long and Bitter

Pros: Its nice to have a course in a small town, even just a simple nine holer. The course is well marked with numbered posts by the tee boxes and each basket has the correct hole number on it.
--There was an effort to add gravel tee boxes.
--It appears to be very well kept up. It was being mowed when I drove up.
Cons: --This course is long, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I think this is a con for two reasons: 1) Its the only course in town so I would think a beginners course would be better suited on the land and 2) With a long layout, the few trees that are there are not being utilized to their full potential. I think you could have some better holes with a length of 200-250ft instead of 350-400. Esp in the area of #1-4. I think you could've fit 6 shorter, better holes in that stretch
-The tee pads were a nice try, but they actually are worse than dirt pads IMO. The gravel is easy to slip on and they are very small - Maybe 5 feet long and 3 ft wide. Also, the tee posts are at the back left of the tee pad making for a very awkward drive. Esp when you're throwing max distance on every tee box.
--It felt like the whole course was drive as far as you can and approach 100-200ft to a pin with guardian trees.
--Not much Variety
--Course par is set like a beginners course but distance and layout disagree.
- A softball game may(probably will) interfere with play on hole one.
Other Thoughts: I really liked hole number one, it was really the only character on the course: A giant 325ish anhyzer with a huge tree canopy on the right just about 50ft in front of the tee, and the fence for a softball field which hugs the entire right side of the fairway. The hole is basically an L where you tee from the short side.
If I was local I would drive the 20 minutes to Smithville and Play River Bend if I could.

Pros: this course had some thought put into it. great flow from one hole to the next. great use of the trees. also there are not places that you would lose a disc. a great course to work on distance with still having obstacles to contend with. nice baskets.
Cons: hole 5 should probably be a par 3 or 4. it is like 495ft, but a par 5 is too much. there wasn't as much elevation as i guessed there would be out in hill country.
Other Thoughts: this course makes me feel like i am better than my skill with all the par 4s and the 5. i feel they should all be par 3 and maybe a par 4 for #5.
