Pros: Forces you to throw multiple shots
Multiple tee boxes
Still playable when it rains (a major plus for the area)
Lots of O.B
The wind only affects a few holes
Tight lines (rare for this area)
Cons: Some of the tee boxes play from the walking path.
You can't see a few baskets from the tee box
Plays on a moderately used walking path.
The man-hole smells terrible when the wind blows
Tees are marked by wood posts
Other Thoughts: By far the best course in the area.
All this course need is a little regular maintenance and a few tee signs, a few more trash cans and a little brush cleared and this course could easily compete as one of the best in the state

Pros: It is brand new
It is the best course in the area as of when it opened IMO
There is good diversity in the shot selection
The technical level high on some holes, but not crazy like some courses in more wooded parts of the state.
Cons: Tee pads were not done yet when I played
Needs trash cans
Needs a map or some direction on where the OB is and Mandos
Plays along a walking trail and some holes are almost on top of each other.
Other Thoughts: This course will only get better.
Tee pads are coming and the more it is played the better it will get.

Best course around to practice for the rest of the world's courses!

Pros: This course is absolutely the best course in this area. It is definitely not a grip-n-rip course. It has some holes that offer a big arm a chance to loosen up, but most of the course requires technical shots and finesse. There are definitely some very ace-able holes on this course with lots of opportunities to birdie, and even some that will only ever see a handful of twos. There are a few really cool mandos and even one "island" shot that isn't technically an island, but plays across OB with a drop zone if you smoke the wrong tree. This course ranges from 200'-500+ and has some really interesting holes. Most holes have multiple lines and are not all RHBH hyzers or dogleg lefts which is a welcomed change. Wind is also not nearly as big a factor as on the other courses due to all the surrounding trees. This is quite literally the thickest woods in all of Odessa. It is a legitimate forest.
Cons: There are a few holes that you walk across loose dirt so prepare to get dusty. But if you wanted to stay clean you wouldn't be playing disc golf! On a couple of holes you throw blindly toward the walking path and can't see your lie until you get up through the thicket. I don't mind throwing blind, but definitely would be ticked if someone found it laying there and ran off with it (which I'm sure will happen eventually). Also, if you were to short it on a few holes it lands in some THICK stuff that looks ideal for rattlesnakes. Maybe one of these days those awesome guys who take such good care of the other courses will clean this one out too. If you ever see them, tell them thanks. They are just disc golfers volunteering to take care of the course.
Other Thoughts: This is such a cool course that will be friendly to new-comers to the sport (as far as not losing discs, but not on score!) that will teach every disc golfer in Midland/Odessa a thing or two about finesse. The walking path that goes through this course is heavily used so play cautiously around others and make sure you don't have walkers getting in your line before you throw. This course has the potential to bring Odessa into the disc golf spotlight as now we can host some legitimate big name tournaments on our three awesome courses that are all within a mile of each other!
