Difficult, but fun
Pros: - Great mix of open and tight holes - front 9 is very open, back nine is very tight - feels like two different courses
- Professional lengths and pars - not a typical par 3 course
- Challenges all parts of one's game - requires power and control to achieve par on any given hole
- Scenic view over the Brazos river and sandstone bluffs
- Nice concrete teepads, good signage - easy to navigate without a map, despite potentially confusing layout
Cons: - Mixed use front 9 - pedestrians, fishermen, boats loading and unloading close enough to fairways to be at risk
- Mosquitoes prevalent in the back 9
- Not a lot of elevation change
- Hole 5 is a nasty disc eater - very sharp dog leg right with only a narrow landing strip to the basket
Other Thoughts: Do not go into this course using the conventional "par 3 for everything", unless you like to count high. This is a professional level course, and there are legitimate par 4s and 5s, and they should be played that way. A 4 on hole 18 from the long teepad, for instance, definitely feels like a birdie, not a bogey.

Pros: Cement Tee pads on all the holes
Very wide variety of holes
Course map is near hole 18? Thought this was funny.
Cons: Hard to think of too many.
Tee signs could use maps of the holes.
Fairways are pretty tight in some places.
There are several holes on the Beast side that you are forced to lay up your drive to get the right shot for your upshot.
Other Thoughts: This course is a monster.
Front holes are longer and more open. There are some birds, but several are out of my range.
The Back Beast lives up to it's name. STAY ON THE FAIRWAY.
Loads of poison ivy and if your off the fairway, you are loosing several strokes.
