One of my buddies drove across the US and back when he was in college. When he returned:

Me: "What was your first impression of the country?"

Him: "Texas is really big."

Thank you, sir, I appreciate that! My son Michael and I do most of the construction work. We're definitely amateurs, but we try to design and build projects that we think are cool, maybe a little bit out there, and that are challenging for both of us. We mainly design for ourselves and figure if we like something most of the customers will too.

We've been working on the courses and buildings for almost 7 years now, and I like to think we've gotten pretty good at making things. Those 25 acres have become our playground. Not just for playing disc golf, but for dabbling in whatever creative thing catches our eye. We get to make furniture, chainsaw carvings, mosaics, welded sculptures, and fun projects like the Ultimate Gimmick Hole.

Firmly at the top of my Wish List!

With my ever decreasing distance I'm growing to love short courses more all the time!

I like it. It reminds me of Baca in ALBQ. There the designer didn't have much natural stuff to work with but made the best of what he could find.

So far I've only played one hole with a man made basket placement. The raised basket on a plywood platform, it was an eyesore on what was a scenic hole. I'm 6 foot and had to tip toe to retrieve my disc, and barely grapping it. I chuckled the thought of those who are shorter and trying to find a way to get their disc out, perhaps grabbing the basket and doing a pull up. I'm for the natural look. But willing to play a course dedicated to the gimmicks.
