Pros: Great variety! Landscape changes through course from desert/flat to wooded/cliffs and a little in between. Holes move often to really keep things changing. Plus a nice practice/putting hole right by the main parking lot.
Cons: Can be a bit confusing to find your way around to the next tees the first time you play. There's been efforts to post signs of each hole, but a lot have fallen down and there's several tees that aren't in plain site.
Other Thoughts: I HATE lubbock, but have really come to love this course. Bring lots of water, sunscreen, and bug spray though.

Pros: Lots of different shots, not repetitive at all. Course layout is fantastic and the two cliff shots are great.
Cons: Lost a disc for the first time playing on hole 8 I think it is, the first cliff shot, can't find the thing anywhere. I wish things were a bit farther from the water on a few holes but other than that it was a blast
Other Thoughts: As I mentioned above I lost my Wraith disc on the first cliff shot, highly recommend you have one person stay down low to help watch where they go. Other than that the varying shots, nice trees, well maintained park, it was fantastic.

Pros: I came to lubbock from houston for the weekend and this course is much better than any couse that I have played in houston. The park looked amazing and there was lots of elevation and terrain changes.
Cons: I was not able to stay long because of who I came with.
Other Thoughts: The cliff shot was not what I imagined but was still very challenging.

Pros: Well maintained park. Very good variety of holes to play. Nice concrete tees. Pleasing to look at. Holes changed frequently to add variety. Improved from my first impression. It never gets boring.
Cons: The river is pretty nasty...
Other Thoughts: I really like this course and will play it every time I go to Lubbock. A "big arm" course that challenges your accuracy on the approach and the wind challenges your putts.

Pros: Good variety of hole. Lots of space, keep mostly away from park visitors. Beautiful park with lots of holes. Really long pads of concrete with benches. Trees shade most of the course but not too many in the way.
Cons: Never did find 7 or 8 pad or basket. 11 was missing a basket. It has rained a lot so 16 and 17 were flooded and I had to walk around the park to get to 5 because of the low water crossing.
Other Thoughts: 11, 14 and 21 made the course. If you are in Lubbock you really need make this part of you visit. Watch out for the attack geese on 5.

Pros: Really well done, spread out course. Enough changes of elevation and scenery to keep things interesting. Beginner and pro launching pads are good for starting point options as well.
Cons: Prepare to walk. Not that walking is entirely bad, it does give your arm a rest from throwing in between holes. There is a rather pesky water hazard that runs horizontal to one of the drive lengths and if your not careful you will put your disk down in the water, where it will be lost forever. unless you have waders and a stick, then you can just storm the water hazard freeing said disk and going on to play the rest of the course.
Other Thoughts: bring water to drink, its very hot in the summer

 the best course I've played By FAR

Pros: hole 11 and 2(969 ft)! Wide open long shots to short technical. lots o water, lost Many-o-disc. lots of different types of holes. lots of elevation changes. Mrs. Baird's ( a large bakery nearby that emits wonderful smells)
Cons: the water is nasty (stinky and slimy). stupid amphitheater.
Other Thoughts: this is the first course I ever played and have played there 200-300 times, and of all the courses I have played since then (probably 20) I still have not seen one to rival it, some come a little close but not there. they just don't have the diversity. and when you are down in the Yellow house canyon there you just can almost dream that you're not in Lubbock anymore

Pros: Big parking lot, plenty of room on weekends. Hole locations can vary, which adds to the excitement of the course. Hole #2 is a long 800ft.+ shot that you can really let it fly. Perfect location for the hole because the wind is coming from your back a majority of the year. Many of the holes around the back of the course "twist" through the surrounding hills, which adds to the variety as well. Many strategically placed holes around water. Several holes have elevation changes, up and down. Nice T's as well as baskets.
Cons: Course is somewhat littered, even though it is well maintained. May not be a con for some...but there are water hazards on 9+ holes. Large groups on weekends. Baskets may be hard to find for the first timer at the course.
Other Thoughts: I play this course a number of times a week, and it never gets old.

Pros: Just a great park and landscape. Not what you would think of when going out to West Texas. Every hole seems to be fluid and fun. It is a older course but is well kept and maintained.

This is a must play! Every hole seems to be very hard and challenging. Recommended for advanced players!

The best cliff shot in Texas. Once you fly a disc from a great cliff, you then must carry your disc over water to an island green. This hole alone is worth it.
Cons: Bring water in the summer! This is a long walk.
Other Thoughts: This was the course I learned how to play on. Best in the area and you need to play it!

Pros: Well designed, challenging course in a beautiful park which is used infrequently by non-disc golfers. The course has extra-long concrete T-pads, a great course sign and map, a practice basket and a cliff shot.
Cons: Discs are easily lost in the water on several holes and are difficult to retrieve.
Other Thoughts: West Texas is fairly flat, dry and has few trees. This course is in a park with hills, water, and large trees!
