 little pitch and putt

Pros: Tee signs for every hole
Cement Tee boxes on every hole
Baskets in great shape
Course grass was a little long, but not over the ankle.
GREAT course to play with your family.
Cons: A little too short for a seasoned player
Other Thoughts: Nice little course for a small town. Right next to the lake/river and near downtown. Nice place to throw some ace runs while your family is shopping downtown.

There is nothing special about this course, most of the holes are straight forward, maybe a single tree to throw around. There are some cool rocks on the very back hole.

Would I play here again?

Drive out of the way? No, but if I were to visit/stay in in the area, I might throw some ace runs or play with the family.

 Great pitch and putt course

Pros: This course is a textbook example on how to make a pitch and putt course. The course is not very long, with no holes over 250' which is a perfect distance for brand new players, and being in a town where there are no other courses for miles, this course should attract quite a few new players.

With all Houck designed courses, I was impressed with the amneities and that they were not lacking at such a small course. Great DisCatcher baskets, great concrete pads, a nice course map at the beginning of the course and colorful tee signs put on boulders at each tee. Even though navigation is fairly straight forward, I appreciated the maps. I also really appreciated the tape on the rungs of the basket pointing towards the next tee. It saved me a tad bit of time.

Even though the holes are short, they still have a little bit of variety on a few of them with obstacles like trees and water. I especially enjoyed hole 7 with its boulders taking up the entire length of the fairway. It was definitely unique.

This course has the potential to be fun for experienced players as the thought of shooting -9 was with me the whole time. Most players have the capability to birdie all 9 holes, but stringing them all together may be a bit of a challenge
Cons: This course is off the beaten path tremendously and really is not worth going out of your way to play.

Although some of the holes had obstacles, many did not and it was a straight 200' shot with not a whole lot of challenge.
Other Thoughts: I was thrilled to see that Llano got a course. I drive through Llano occasionally, and I think I will be stopping each time I am in, since it plays very quickly and is easily accessible off of the "main highway" in Llano.

Hopefully, this course will attract new players to play. This is a good place to start attracting those players.

 Great Little Family Course

Pros: This nine-hole course is a welcome addition to Llano, Texas. It was designed as a family-friendly course to introduce the locals to disc golf, and it hits the mark well.

With hole lengths ranging from 157' to 229' this is a perfect course for starting folks out playing DG. For more experienced players, the course is good for working on approach shots and putts. Ace runs galore and nine easily birdiable holes.

Good concrete teepads with appropriate texture; nice signs with hole number, distance, and a good map; and brand new Innova Discatcher baskets make the infrastructure of the course as good as it gets.

While the terrain is generally flat there are some exposed boulders and enough trees and shrubs to create interest. There are quite a few newly planted trees on the course that will add to the challenge as time goes on.

The lake comes into play on holes 8 and 9, and is deep enough to hide your errant disc.
Cons: If you are an experienced player this is a duece-or-die kind of course. All holes are easily reachable with a putter or midrange and there frankly isn't a great deal of challenge here. A good local player shot 8 under on his first round here.

Not a destination course and kind of off the beaten path. But certainly worth a round or two if you're in the area.
Other Thoughts: I think that more communities could use short "starter" course like this. While they won't challenge an experienced disc golfer, they serve the useful purpose of introducing new folks to the sport.
