Jeez, John must have not need sleep. But hey any reason to be out near Selah Ranch is a good enough reason to drive to Mt Pleasant. I look forward to both of these and any info would be great.

Why, yes, Rodney, I do have news and updates and comments:

http://houckdesign.com/current_disc_golf_courses.html

Thanks for asking.

And Recant, these new courses are actually much closer than Mt. Pleasant. They're just south of town off 37. It's about 12 1/2 miles from Selah as the crow flies -- it took me about 22 minutes last week. And thanks for caring about my sleep needs -- I'm making sure I stay alert.

Texas Teams will be at Selah AND Trey Texas this year, and for the first time ever, we're creating a special division for teams from outside Texas. So grab a bunch of like-minded disc golfers and come enjoy four of the world's best courses.

They are having the Texas Teams tournament at Selah and Trey Duece this weekend, so I assume it is playable now. Although I have no idea when it will be open to the public.

I'll be in Mt Vernon the first weekend in Dec., two weeks after the tourney. The courses were just added to the course directory here, I'm guess by Mr. Houck. Its listed as private but theres no contact info or anything about how to get on. There are directions however.

I've posted on Trey Deuce's FB page but haven't received an answer. I've filed through, some of the tourney info online and found a phone number. I'm not gonna bother calling today or tomorrow as they will be very busy. Monday or Tuesday I will try to get the scoop.

We're planning on playing/camping at Selah on Friday so that should give me a day to figure it out if I can't before then.

Both courses are great. Really kind of hard to give any fair reviews under the conditions we played in. Rainy wet and muddy. Lots of trees to still be cut but I think the trey deuce courses will compliment selah perfectly.

Trey Duece is in better shape then Texas Twist

Both have lots of potential but I don't think Texas Twist will be really fun until about a year or two from now, still alot of trees and trimming to do. Also navigating on Texas Twist was brutal, my card started on hole 11 out there and it took us 45 minutes to get to our hole.

Alot of pink tape around trees for stuff to be removed.

Also, it was crappy weather out there and completely soaked, so it'd have to be played in les muddy conditions to really judge it. Alot of fairways hold water; Creekside at Selha drains so so so much better then these two courses do.
