Default Traveling to Houston...suggestions?

I'm going to be in Houston for one day coming up (Monday April 25). I'm looking for the best courses to play and if there are any leagues playing on Monday nights.

All info in welcome.

Thanks

What area of Houston are you going to be in? Houston is pretty spread out and this can make a big difference on what courses to recommend.

Below is a link to the website of Houston Flying Disc Society that runs several leagues.

If you get in early and want to play Oak Meadow Sunday afternoon let me know.

I'm flying into north houston, IAH airport I believe.

I am actually coming in Monday (which is early) because I am catching a connecting flight to Panama on Tuesday. I figured I would fly in on Monday and catch some golf Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning before heading back to the airport.

I'm planning on getting a rental car so travel won't be an issue if the course is worth it!

Your best bets are on the extreme opposite sides of town. Up north, Spring Valley and McDade are good plays. On the other side of things, you can come down to Jack Brooks park on the southeast side for two very nice courses. Both are in great shape right now as we just had Texas States there. You could also play MacGregor when you are coming back through town which is a fun play although nothing really special. Let me know if you have any other questions, and I can try to help you out.

IAH is on the North side of town. There are plenty of good courses on this side. On Monday, I would recommend Sping Valley and Winwood. If you have enough time, you can go to Oak Meadow on Monday afternoon. Not sure of my schedule yet, but I might be able to meet you out at Oak Meadow Monday afternoon. PM me if interested.

Some other courses to consider are McDade (Conroe) and Northside Christion Church (9 holes).

There are some pretty good reviews of these courses on DGCR to give you a good idea of what they are like.

There are also some good courses on the other side of town, but with your limited time they probably won't be worth the drive.
