Pros: Great little course in Katy. No water hazards. You won't lose a disc. There are a few tree hazards; so most drives/approaches need to be low to stay out of the canopy, and there are some elevation changes. The grounds are well kept and mowed weekly.
Cons: Mary Jo Peckham is usually very busy with lots of people. Depending on day and time, there could be kids walking/riding bikes through the course. It's only 6 holes; so to get a full 18 holes, you have to play through 3 times. Only 1 tee per hole.
Other Thoughts: First hole has a major tree hazard, and all holes are par 3. I think there's room for more holes in this end of the park.

Pros: Mary Jo Peckham Park is a huge upgrade for where these six baskets used to be at, Bridgepoint Bible Church.
The park is a beautiful multi-purpose park with a lake in the middle, walking trails and playgrounds throughout the park. The course is nestled away from where the majority of park goers are.
The course utilizes a few hills, something that few Houston courses can say that they have. The distances of the holes are fair, a few longer holes, a few shorter holes with more obstacles in them. The lake never comes into play, which equals no discs being lost.
Navigation is easy. The holes are marked with small tee signs and wooden 2x4 laid sideways in the ground.
Cons: The space that the course is on is a little cramped, as all of the holes are inside of the walking trail. Six holes is a perfect number with the land available, but six holes is really not worth a lot of people's time.
With the course being brand new, there are a lot of people that are not aware that the course is there. Be very wary of people walking through your fairways and be careful throwing near the walking trail as unsuspecting walkers walk by blissfully unaware of any discs being thrown.
Other Thoughts: Like mentioned previously, these baskets got a huge upgrade by being moved here. I hope to see this course being used and teach the families about the game. This course is a little far removed from any other courses, and coming out here just for this course is not worth it depending on if you live more than 10 miles away. The park holds enough land for an expansion, but for now the course will remain at six holes.
