Pros: To start out, I've only played this course once, and that was enough for it to be one of my favorite courses that I have had the chance to throw. Although the course is still in it's early stages of development, the level of aptitude and masterful course design easily makes this one of the best courses in the surrounding area of Houston. My favorite quality is the idea that no hole is the same, none of them are even close(except 15&16, but planning is in the works to relocate 15). There's a huge variety of different lines to take on most holes, the elevation changes on some holes make them that much more grand, and the overall flow of the course is exceptional. The park is in a great location as well, the pedestrian traffic is very low, except on one hole(11) that the tee pad may need to be moved due to throwing almost directly near a pavilion, other then that the course feels dedicated to disc golf.
Cons: *Beware of Chiggers in the wooded holes*
There is no map, tee sings or tee pads right now but there is a highlighted tape that guides players through the course so its not too difficult to navigate. Holes 13-16 are very underdeveloped and unless you're extremely confident in your throw I would advise passing them for now until they get cleaned up. Hole 11 shoots right next to a picnic table and a pavilion, when we played this whole area was full of pedestrians and we had to skip this hole. Also, beware of the sticky sticker patches, these plants will eat you alive if you are not careful.
Other Thoughts: Definitely one of my favorite courses I've ever played. The design and layout is almost perfect and the location is awesome. There's just a few minor things that need to be fixed up and that will just take time. I would recommend this course to any type of player, it's very enjoyable.

Pros: Overall course layout and beautiful location makes this course the best in the Greater Houston Area. Holes are tough but fair and distances will challenge you. Water comes into play as do several majestic old trees so skill shots are rewarded too. Rolling hills give elevation changes that are a true rarity in our flat city! Average hole length over 400 ft so bring your fastest drivers. A must play for all Houstonians when it is available.
Cons: Still just a temporary course so no permanent signs or markings yet.
Well flagged for tournaments and hopefully it will become a permanent course soon.
Other Thoughts: This site is perfect for disc golf...central, scenic and yes secluded so no worries of hitting pedestrians, campers, bikers etc.
