Nice little out of the way course
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Course is set in a nice community park. Long concrete tee pads, with nice signs. It was mowed nicely, and easy to navigate, even with no course map. Overall, a good course for rec players or beginners.
Cons: LOTS of trees to shoot through. Not much room to 'go around' them! Baskets are set way too low, by at least a foot. Most holes are the same as the last, just differing distances.
Other Thoughts: This course plays around a small lake, so when you finish #9, you have a long walk back to your car. Looks like it could have been 18 holes, going all the way around the lake. It's not a destination or tournament course, but overall it was fun to play.

Sweet course you make up yourself
Pros: New shiny baskets
Plenty of shade
Hole 1 has a decent wood chipped tee box
Very pretty park between HUGE homes and a Lake with a pedestrian path
There was a loaner disc on the top of basket one left there by Brittany welcoming you to her course.
Cons: Nothing marking tee's other than the wood chip box for hole 1. Hopefully they make some more.
Hole one starts on the other side of the creek, then you work your way to the other side of the park to basket 9. That leaves you a super long walk back to your car.
Private community park, there are signs saying private for some of the other amenities in the park, but not for disc golf (yet)
Other Thoughts: What a beautiful park. Tall trees, lots of shade, right next to a lake. The holes were far enough away from the backyards to keep people from throwing in them.
The only problem, no tee's marked after hole 1.
It looked like it has been built a while back, but only hole 1 had a tee box of any short. Nothing marking any tees after that.
I played the course from basket to basket till I reached the last basket on the other side of the lake from where you started.
This means you either play the course backwards, or it's a long walk. (I elected on the long walk as I was to play more course that afternoon)
I would give you more of a review, but there is not much else to say.
none of the holes are "close" to the lake, although you could throw some shots over the edge of the lake if you wanted too. No set tee boxes so do what ever you like. (I did loose one disc in the lake, made my donation)
If you play here, after playing the last basket, I would walk down and throw back to that same basket, then play the rest of the holes backwards. This gives you a nice 18 holes in the wonderful park. If I lived in the area, I would help them get some tee signs at least. I would also push to make the course 18 holes all the way around the lake instead of just one side, but you could easily make it play one way and back the other way.
Would I play here again?
Yes, if someone marks tee pads out, I would play the course again for sure. The park is worth it by itself. As far as a destination course, no, it is not a course you drive a long way to play, it is meant to be a local neighborhood course, not a championship level course.
Please leave the park the way you found it or cleaner. No one bothered me as I played, but we don't want to give the neighbors a bad taste from someone smoking or drinking and leaving trash all around.

Gets Points Based Soley on Potential
Pros: There is a huge amount of potential here. In fact, potential alone is saving this abysmal excuse for a course for being a 0.0.
The nine baskets sit scattered around a large lake in the middle of a master planned community. The baskets are weaved through the large amount of medium sized trees all around the lake.
Some of the baskets sit fairly close to the water adding a little bit of risk on some shots.
The baskets play all the way around the lake, which makes it a very scenic walk on a nice day! (Okay, I am just stretching the pros at this point)
Cons: Notice in my pros I never used the word "holes" and instead used "baskets" in its place. That is because there are no holes here. There are simply nine baskets scattered throughout the park.
I saw a couple high schoolers and they asked me where we start at for the course. Being my first time, I hoped they knew, but they said they come every day and have no idea of any things since there are no tee markings, or numbers on the baskets. There is nothing to show any discernible resemblance of a course here.
With the course being so close off the Grand Parkway, there is almost a definite chance you would have to pay a toll to get here, which let me tell you, that would be the biggest waste of a $1.50 you could ever do if you are planning to come here.
Other Thoughts: This piece of land has a ton of potential to be a solid course. It gives off the vibe of First Colony Aquatic Center down in Missouri City with the lake in play, a few scattered trees. Without tee markings, or numbers on the baskets these baskets will not and should not get any good use as it simply is not worth coming out here.
There are plenty of good courses in the north part of the Houston area that are far more superior than playing here. If you do find your way here, I recommend playing a little safari golf as it will give you the most of the baskets.
