The Super 8 in Mount Vernon isn't terrible, or at least it wasn't a few years ago.

Yeah, we camped there. right on one of the ponds, a short walk (cart drive) from the bath house.

Dope. Thanks. This is definitely my first stop on my November road trip then. I only played each course once, a couple years back, and it was like 110 outside.

Looking forward to a cooler and slower paced time there this fall.

You can. Just make sure you call to make reservations still, even for camping. They have a fire ring and trash cans in the camping area. There are showers and restrooms by the pro shop too.

Yeah, I remember using that shower when I was there last time. It was a god-send. Like I said it was like 110 degrees, and we had a looooong stretch of driving to do after. They were nice too, except the large spider in one.

Which reminds me, the biggest damn spider I ever saw in my life was at Selah, in the long grass on the island green. It was like hand-sized and eating something. Terrifying.

Native Texan here... the bigs ones are cool. They won't mess with you as long you don't mess with them. It's the dime sized black and the nickel sized brown ones you need to avoid at all costs.

Just got back from our annual trip. What I am about to say is all about me and NOT the courses or the quality of them. Anyway, I may be done with this particular trip. I am finding that I just don't enjoy this type of course as much as I did when we first started going. I have had shoulder issues over the years, and the amount of par4/5s plus the undriveable par 3s(for me) just add up on me. The enjoyment I get out of disc golf is measured by how excited I am to throw a particular tee shot. There just wasn't that much excitement for me this weekend. A few too many placement drives and too few throwing at baskets. I found that I enjoyed playing lake Nacogdoches on the way up was more fun. OTOH, if a group from here is definitely going, I am not sure I could really say no. So, I guess I am conflicted on it.

Did you play the longs or the shorts? My group of guys ages 40-51, and we've all been playing 20+ years, and we all are 920+ golfers who drive 300+.......and we play the shorts at Selah almost exclusively. AND we play doubles almost exclusively. We used to play the longs at all Houck's other courses (Wimberley, San Saba, Moody's), with lots of Singles rounds. But now the golf is secondary (tertiary?) to food, drink, bro-time......and playing the shorts (and doubles) makes it WAY more fun and WAY less arduous.
