Had a moment from the film, The Day After Tomorrow?
Pros: Yes the mousquitos rule the island. HOWEVER, if you go when it is cold or windy, you can get a decent experience here. I went on a windy day and had little to no problems at all. The locals, said this was rare and that they wear lots of clothes and use lots of bug spray when coming here. This course has a few trees, lots of wide open holes, some OB, and fair elevation. This course is far enough away from most populations, that it should never really be that busy. The message board does have a map on it and it was really helpful. It was a real trip getting ready to putt and then all of a sudden I giant ship started floating into my view. I posted a picture of this in the courses pictures. I was like, is this the Day After Tomorrow? It is pretty cool that you are playing on an island. They do have a shelter with a pinic area on the course. I do think it is cool that this park is fenced in and set up just for Disc Golf.
Cons: There are signs that help a lot but they are in really bad shape. The dirt/grass tee pads are not in the flattest conditions. The baskets are all funtional but are worn. It is obvious this course has been around since 1991 and that the hurricanes have done their number on this place. All the refuge is cleaned up, but keep that in mind when coming here. We are probably not seeing what the course creator intended today. (sad thought I know) Also, plan ahead, as there are no bathrooms at the location and nothing very close by.
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor was not what I expected from an island course. This is basically your average open course. The trees and elevation that are there, does give it some flavor, but it was not enough to make me want to play a second round. One thing for sure, if you happen to play here, you will now be able to say that you have played on an island. BTW, make sure you get your wooden nickle with that.

Pros: Great scenery next to Port Arthur Port on the Gulf of Mexico looking at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge. Course is by itself and there's no reason for anyone to get in your way unless it's another Disc Golfer. Good hole layout and works well with the elevation changes. Being next to the Gulf, there was a constant breeze the whole time which adds a challenge to the course.
Cons: Grass isn't taken care of to well. It was almost like a pasture. The tee signs need cleaning. There are a lot of misquitos next to the water there. There are also some craters where the tee boxes are supposed to be. I think they removed a tree stump maybe. There are also no restrooms on the course, you may need to drive to the park nearby.
Other Thoughts: BRING BUG SPRAY!
This course is a good play and I can see the potential in the course if it would get fixed up a little bit.
