Best Local 9, 'Cause It Goes To 10

Pros: I'm not sure who put this course in [though I bet the park sign gives a good clue], but its laid out just well enough to be interesting for a few rounds, and to feel you haven't wasted your time driving here. It is better than both Diamondhead and Buccaneer. The 10 holes make a counter-clockwise circle starting from just east of the new visitors center, though the current map is still labeled in the old #s.
The terrain is almost completely flat, with ground cover a mix of grass and sand. The vegetation is mostly oaks of varying sizes and stand densities, with a bit of dense undergrowth lining the right side of #s 5-6. Four holes are tunnelish shots through trees, a few are left/right hyzers around large trees or dense stands, and a few more have at least 1/2 their fairway completely in the open. I don't think any hole is over 300' and the difficulty doesn't go much past beginner.
Theres a fair campground, and Jordan Creek makes for a wonderfully cool dip on a hot day.
After you make the turn onto Texas Flat Road, you'll see a sign that says, "Rosa Parks Scenic Byway To Space". They forgot to leave room for "Center" at the end.
Cons: Tee signs currently paper on a stick, but should be upgraded with the park improvements. Ditto for the tees, which are natural and only obvious from the worn spots on the ground. These improvements will bump the rating up at least 1/2 point.
Currently the new construction affects #s 7-9, though they can be thrown, by guessing from the map where the tees would likely be.
Looking at the layout, I can see the possibility of not being able to play many of the holes when the park is busy.
Hot, humid and buggy in summer and a month to either side.
Other Thoughts: The nearest store is just south of I-10, about 3-4 miles away, though drinks are available at the visitors' center.
Brett Favre's family restaurant, Favre's on the Bayou, is near here.

Pros: Well kept grass was nicely cut and clean,lots of trees.looking forward to playing again.
Cons: Although there were no long holes and only 10 baskets it was very fun. The map they have us didnt match the numbers on the baskets so I asume the map was wrong also the numbers on the baskets often pointed in the wrong direction it is a new course so some bugs will need to be ironed out.
Hope they will add 8 more holes.
Other Thoughts: look foward to improvements and additional baskets
