Pros: The course is within a reasonable distance of many residential neighborhoods in west Lubbock and it's near several restaurants, so it is in an overall good location.

The baskets (the ones that are there) are all in good condition.

This course is great for the beginner who is just learning shots or for the experienced player who is experimenting.
Cons: Three of the holes are just that... holes. The baskets on holes #5, #14, and #15 are completely missing.

There are stickers everywhere, and the majority of the course is dust peppered with prairie dog holes. The tees are poorly marked, if at all, and rarely even have a hole number assigned to them. If I hadn't had a map printed off, and if I wasn't familiar with the course, it would be very difficult to navigate.

Many locals enjoy using the course as a place to drink and shatter beer bottles, so there is glass everywhere. Not a place I would bring the little ones or pets.

Lastly, the wind is awful. There are a few trees scattered around the "fairways" but serve only as obstacles to drives and offer no break to the wind.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I would discourage play on this course for anything more than a practice round for personal improvement. Again, three baskets are missing so those holes are practically unplayable.

Lubbock would be better served by either putting way more work into this course or by moving the baskets to a nicer location somewhere still on the west side of town.
