Awesome Variety for Middle-of-Nowhere-Texas
Pros: +located in a very nice park with quite a few of benches, nice trail, and shade
+several holes have 2 tees, an amateur and pro tee
+hole 18 ends near hole 1 which is always a plus
+I don't know if it would be possible to loose a disc
+great variety, some open shots, several tree shots, and always some kind of obstacle
Cons: -no course map, no tee maps - there are a few "blind" holes
-"natural" tee pads (no concrete or rubber pads)
-bathrooms were all locked while I was there...
-several holes are very close together on the tight layout of the course which can cause congestion and confusion
-follows a nice and well used walking path so you need to be aware of other park visitors
Other Thoughts: There are a few logistical kinks to work out (tee signs, tee pads, a course map, maybe a few signs informing other park visitors) so this course just isn't a 5 out of 5 or even a 4 out of 5 but it is very enjoyable to play. I had fun despite spending time figuring out where holes were and waiting on other park visitors.
Admittedly, I havent played the other courses in Odessa so I cant say which I enjoyed more. I did play Cowden Park in Midland and if you are looking for a permanent full 18 course to play I suggest making the drive to Odessa. Cowden was a fun 9 holes though and offers some good challenges for a city park.
Fun course, good variety, just needs some more course enhancements
