Pros: Great wooded course without underbrush. Not overly challenging but difficult enough for seasoned players. The practice basket has one of the best 'clock' set-ups in Houston and is a great place to practice putting. The north side of the course makes good use of elevation changes.
Cons: The course could use better markings. On your first run through the course it is a bit difficult to figure out where to go to next. The occasional group picnicking in the middle of the course happens a bit too frequently.
Other Thoughts: A really nice course and a nice park. It does get a bit sketchy after dusk though.

Pros: Nicely laid out gives you room to open up and throw, but also gives you a chance to work on the finesse aspect...
Cons: I agree, it is in a rough area, but whos going to come mess with a big group of people throwing things? The only con I could really find with this course is the monster chain-link fence that you could very well fly over if not careful...
Other Thoughts: Good park, I play it when Im in the Old Spanish Trail area for work, itll give you a workout though

Pros:
21 holes with three sets of tees. Well marked main (red) tees with ~2ft tall wooden posts. Short tees are marked with blue bricks. Long tees are marked with yellow bricks. Most baskets have a spoke painted red which points the direction to the next tee. Ample parking. Transition from #10 to #11 is at the parking lot allowing you to refill supplies.

Update:
New (mid-2010) "crushed asphalt" tee pads have started to wear in, time will tell if they hold up well.
Cons:
Short and long tee bricks were hard to find without a map, but that's changed since they installed the asphalt tee pads. A few challenging holes, e.g. #16, but in general not the most difficult course. No elevation as the park is almost completely flat.
Other Thoughts:
Holes "A"-"C" play geographically between holes #4 & #5. The warm-up basket is located close to basket #10 on the way from the parking lot to tee #1; it has ~5' interval marker bricks for putting practice. One of the more popular area courses I've played in that there were a decent number of other players out there both times I've been there. A good drive that misses all the trees will leave you with a birdie putt on most holes.
