My Local Course
Pros: Located in beautiful Sam Houston Jones State Park, with tent, RV, and cabin camping near by, which make this a great disc golf resort.
Nice mix of both left and right dog leg holes. Multiple tees for novice, am and pro players. Lots of woods to make the short holes challenging. Only one small water hazard. Benches at every 3rd hole or so.
Continuity flows well between holes except between holes 2 & 3 and 6 & 7.
Cons: Bring insect repellent, it is located on the banks of the Calcasieu River in South Louisiana low lands, so beware of mosquitos and mind other hazardous wild life such as yellow jackets and snakes.
After big rains Holes 2 and 13 are difficult b/c of the accumulation of casual water. Rain also effects play on the fairways of 1, 12, & 18.
Other Thoughts: Tee marker posts were recently cemented in at the white (am) tees. Tee signs are scheduled to be placed on 7/20/13. The holes in the woods are maintained by volunteer labor local DG club not the park maintenance crew. So if it is over grown be patient we will get to it to cut down fairway overgrowth. The more open holes are mowed regularly by the park maintenance crew. Only one trash dumper located between hole 3 and 4, please use it and do not litter the course. Deer and raccoons are very tame and welcome hand outs. 2 dollar daily entry fee to SHJ State Park.
