Pros: This course has become one of my favorites, it's better than most equivalently rated courses in the DFW area. Lots of nice wooded holes, many different kinds of shots needed. Lots of trees to shoot around and under. Most of the rough is cleared out enough to keep it from being unbearable. The Houck tee-signs are excellent. Cameron Park itself is an amazing park, lots of stuff on it along the Brazos.
Holes one to four play in a single single area. Five through fourteen make another group. These fourteen holes are mostly wooded shots, save for three oir so open holes. Fifteen to nineteen are across the road from the others (the road is an elevated bridge, so you actually cross under it). These holes are much more open than the rest of the course, and really feel like a different course. Twenty throws across a creek that feeds into the Brazos. Twenty-one to twenty-three play in another fairly open area, back on the same side of the road as the others.
Cons: The transition from 4 to 5 is awkward. The park is very busy, 15 through 19 are in an area that can be very busy. 21 through 23 can be almost impossible to play on weekends. There seems to always be an organized event, or just a large number of people to work around. In our trips there we have not been able to play them due to everything from triathlons to larpers.
Other Thoughts: I really don't understand the low ratings on this course. It is well above all 3.7ish courses I've played. I understand there have been some issues in the past (mainly old baskets, signs and reconfigurations). These have all been taken care of at this point, and the older reviews don't do Cameron justice.

WOW nice course
Pros: I love this course!!!! First 9 has some great elevation changes. Very scenic. Great bird opps on the first 9. First hole starts uphill which will warm up your arm nicely. The second hole has recently had some tree limbs cut which make it a lot easier than it used to be. Hole 3 is downhill through trees but is short and birdieable. Nice dog leg right on hole 4. Hole 5 is known as Bogey Hill and for good reasons. Way uphill and lotsa roots to prevent skipping. Hole 6 is nice flat and straight. Hole 7 is a dog leg left with a low hanging tree in the middle. Hole 8 is short, slightly wooded, and uphill. Bird city on this one. Hole 9 has a muddy tee area 90% of the time. Downhill dog leg right with trees right in front of you. Creek runs by 9 so watch your distance. Hole 10 is across the street and down the road a bit. Great time for a " smoke " break. Two tees for 10, pretty open with a few trees. Nice howler monkeys! Hole 11 has 2 tees also. Mainly open with little tree problems. Basket is placed between two close trees. Hole 12 is straight but there is a tree thas has been growing there for thousands of years right in front of you. Nice hyzer and it is birdie. Hole 13 is pretty straight and a small tree in the middle. Hole 14 is straight going back toward the river and a few trees. There are 2 tees for 15. One is throwing right over a creek with tree so there are a few disc hazzards there. The second tee is nice and short easy bird. Hole 16 is long with trees along your right. Overstable drivers can pose a problem sometimes. Hole 17 can scare some DGers. Lotsa trees and next to the Brazos. Overall not as scary as it looks. Hole 18 is long with thick wooded area to your right. One other tree in the fairway.
Cons: Very busy course at times, not really a con unless your in a rush.
Other Thoughts: Bang the chains!!!!
