Pitch and put central
Pros: Has baskets
VERY short walk from Basket to next tee.
Cons: Lack of tree's, specially in the fairways
Next Tee's too close to baskets
Worlds shortest tee boxes
Very long walk from hole 18 to 1
No online map, was unable to find tee's on a few of the holes
Other Thoughts: This is a GREAT beginner course or a good course to take new players too.
As for the seasoned player? not so good.
Played at 7:30am on a cold day, the fog was so thick I could not see the baskets on a few of the holes from the tee boxes. This made it a fun round on a pitch and putt course.
1st off, there are no signs of any sort marking the tee's. Most of the holes had either tee boxes facing the wrong direction or they were the worlds shortest tee boxes. (4 foot wide, 2 foot long)
I was trying to play fast, I started on hole 9 thinking I would just loop around. I did not realize how far away hole 18 was from hole 1.
You start off behind the playground just over the small wooden bridge. You will find a tee box under the tree over to the closest basket you see. Warning, these are wide very short tee boxes, only for your planting foot, not for run ups. (not that you need a run up on these short holes)
The course follows the path down and back up the other side of the wash (not enough water to call it a creek)
After hole 9, you cross the road. I was unable to find tee boxes for the holes between the pond and homes. I guess your suppose to tee off from the path next to the basket. That is what I did on these holes.
When you get to the "Dam" hole, you have tee boxes again..
I did not keep score, but I believe I hit the basket on my 2nd shot on every hole. I know I made at least 1/2 of them in 2, but got spit or banged the basket on the other 1/2.
This would make a great ace race course.
Would I play here again? I think I would, not much shade though. There are also several better courses nearby.

Pros: (1.076 Rating) (RE-EVALUATED) A lesson in how not to design a course.
- WHY THE REVISION - For some time now, I've felt I gave this course too low of score. On my original review for Falcon Pointe, I took off extra points for things that I would no longer do. Even though this is indeed a bad course, I feel it's better than my initial 0.5 score.
- ACEABILITY - One of a few highlights that I had here was pinging one off the basket on (4). Numerous holes are highly aceable as many of distances are under 250 feet and void of trees.
- CHAINS - The baskets are in great shape. One my favorite types, DISCatchers,
- HOLE 15 - This is the one stand-out hole. It plays along a concrete dam structure.
- LOCATION - A 10 minute drive from I35 and only a couple minutes drive from the highway 45 toll way.
- QUICK PLAY - A single can easily complete a full 18 in under an hour. Groups of 4 probably would finish in under two hours.
Cons: The cons are many and significant and were magnified by a 2016 reconfiguration.
- TEES - Sadly, they were all poured in the wrong direction, thus only 4 feet long. The first of many sins a player will notice when they play here.
- BASKET AND TEE SEPERATION - There are numerous occurrences where the basket and next tee are perilously close. Several times they are separated by less than 20 feet.
- CHARACTER - Non-existent. To start, there are tee pads and baskets missing on the back nine due to home construction, and according to sources I have in the area, this is still the case in 2019. There is also no tee shading, no seating, no map, no community board, no practice basket, no hole signage, no shelter, no extra tees and no everything one can think of. There are great baskets and tee pads pointing the wrong direction. That's it.
- FORGIVENESS - Also due to home construction, some baskets were relocated closer to the water. As in 10 feet from the water. With the wind howling like it normally does here, Players will seriously consider putting the disc back in the bag on a few holes.
- MAINTENANCE - The rest of the park seems to get a lot more love than the course itself. I was greeted with knee high grass on holes (5) thru (9). Apparently this has been an ongoing issue, especially during wet periods.
- NAVIGATION - Navigation is pretty bad, but playable. There is no map to be found. I located many baskets driving in, but I did not find hole (1) right away. Tee (1) is on the north end of the park and it's 250 feet west of the street parking. There are no directional cues or hole signage. Thankfully the baskets are yellow and numbered. Yeah DISCatchers.
- ELEVATION - Really none to speak of. This is not really typically for the Austin area. Total elevation change is less than 10 feet throughout the entire course.
- UNIQUENESS - The holes themselves are lacking the uniqueness that one would find on the average 18 hole course. The course is extremely short, although not as short as nearby Wells Branch. Most of the holes are wide open straight field plays or shots with the pond on the left side.
- FINISH - Hole (18) finishes a quarter mile from tee (1)
- WIND - Due to the lack of trees, wind will likely be a major issue. 30 mph gusts during my visit.
Other Thoughts: A horrible disc golf experience. 367 courses played as of this re-evaluation, and even with my substantial bump up in score, it's still one of my lowest scored 18 hole courses. Nothing was done right here other than picking out high quality baskets. I don't advise anyone coming here unless a player can check off one of the following reasons. 1. Course layout borders the backyard. 2. Hardcore course bagger. 3. Enjoys playing train wreck courses.

Great for beginners
Pros: Very good for beginners or to practice throwing aces. Nice open spaces in the front nine. Back nine surrounds a pond where lots of joggers makes for a nice view.
Great for a quick game.
Cons: Tee boxes are all wrong. A few holes do not have tees.

So much potental....
Pros: Not much to say.
This is a good course to practice mid-range/putting. Good course for beginers.
Very nice sub development.
Cons: Where to start....
The layout is terrible. From the sideways teeboxes to short non challenging wide open holes.
No signage, but easy to follow.
The unfortunate thing is there is tons of options for the area. Hole 1 and 18 are several hundred feet apart. There was enough room to lay a better course out.
The amazing pond in the back nine could have been utilized so much better than just wrapping the course around it.
I haven't been back since the first time I played it. For any player above the begining level you are wasting your time at this course.
Other Thoughts: It could have been so much more.

Pros: This is a great course to work on your mid-range and putter form. I enjoyed having a legitimate water hazard during our Texas drought.
Cons: Put your drivers away because you will not need them. Each hole on the front nine, and each hole on the back nine are basically same shot over and over again: short and straight.
Other Thoughts: I'm happy that a neighbor association thinks to install a disc golf course.

Fun Neighborhood Course
Pros: Excellent baskets and well kept grounds. Simple layout, great for beginners. In a nice neighborhood.
Cons: Concert tees are tiny and laid out in the wrong direction. Holes are very short. No signs what so ever. No real variety in the holes.
Other Thoughts: This is a great beginners courses. With only one hole( 17 ) where you might lose a disc into the water. If you can throw over 200 feet you will not be challenged by this course at all, except for trying to not over throw each hole. They have the land here to make this a more challenging course. With a little work and moving of baskets they could create unique holes while still keeping the course beginner friendly. Tee pads really need some work. I just threw from behind them because they where just so small.
If have someone who has never played or a kid that is just learning this would be a great course to take them. Plus if they get bored there is a nice playground for them to play on while you finish the course.
The walking path through the park makes it cart/stroller friendly. Signs all over saying dogs must be on lease.

Fun for the short game
Pros: Get close on a lot of aces here.
Good practice for shorter shots.
Never has anyone besides myself on it.
Cons: Teeboxes facing wrong direction.
Small "fairways" on back 9, lots of unkempt grass.
Other Thoughts: This course is a lot of fun to play for people playing for the first time. It is real short and there are no difficult holes. Some who has played longer will have lots of fun getting very close and even getting aces on most of the holes. Hole 17 is probably the "hardest" due to being right next to the water and really tall weeds grown next to the water. Very easy to lose the disc on 17 with a throw that catches the wind.

Pros: - Only course actually in Pflugerville
- Nice baskets and beautiful central Texas scenery
- Never crowded, can play 18 holes in less than an hour
- Great course to practice putt and approach
Cons: - Tee Pads (obviously)
- They cut down the back 9! This was a shock for me last time I played here. The back nine used to present some unique and difficult short shots. However, it was recently cut back significantly which takes away any difficulty this course might have had. Pretty lame.
- Too easy, even for someone who has only played for 3 months.
Other Thoughts: As I mentioned above, cutting back the back 9 has really hurt this course. It is great for me living in P-ville and having somewhere to throw a quick 18 though. Watch out for #17 though as it can be a doozie sitting right next to the water. Overall it is great that this neighborhood has put an 18 hole course in the middle of some beautiful views. I love playing here at sunset and seeing the sun go down behind the farmhouse on the back 9. This course will offer a great outing for any family as it has a little something for everyone.

I was actually kind of impressed
Pros: If you're looking for a fun mid-range course with a few far shots, then you'll definitely like this.
- Not a lot of obstacles and the ones that are there are easy to get around. Just be careful of the swamp lake on the back 9, you won't be swimming to get it out.
- Nice scenery filled with trees and nice grass. Also very quiet and relaxing.
- Flat course, good for those that aren't looking to hike around.
Cons: - Some holes are too short. I at least 3 or 4 of the holes went in a zig-zag pattern back and forth with only about 100 feet from the basket to the tee.
- As mentioned before, the tee boxes are really weird and facing the wrong way. Just stand to the side if you need more room.
- Flat course which isn't good if you're looking for some elevation shots and more adventurous surroundings.
Other Thoughts: Considering the pictures and reviews I had read about this course I was going in with some negative thoughts. Things weren't as bad as I had expected which is why I may be scoring it a little higher than some. It really is a nice course if you're looking for some mid-range practice. By the way, hole 18 can be unforgiving. Be careful.
Good for a beginner
Pros: Nice short holes for a beginner. A couple of holes had a few trees that made good obstacles but most were wide open, which was perfect for me since it was my first time at disc golf. Looks a lot better than the pictures. Nice little park next to course.
Cons: Hot and very little shade. Needs to be mowed. Lots of holes in the ground, and a few shallow ditches. Looked like it could get very muddy after a little rain. Kind of confusing, tees aren't marked with hole number, tee boxes aren't facing the the basket on most holes. Pond next to 2nd 9 holes, only a con because I just started and didn't want to lose a disc.
Other Thoughts: I try and take some new pictures soon. I didn't play the 2nd half because I didn't want to lose a disc in the pond. Not many other people there, could be a pro or con i guess.
