One NICE course
Pros: Well designed course with tons of variety. Nice mix of open fields, tunnel tree shots, water hazards both from 2 rivers including a small waterfall and the large lake. Even some elevation changes from holes that cross the river, or follow the lakeshore (do not overshoot that pin, yikes!). Thus, this course brings a variety of interesting hazards into play, and has considerable elevation for a Houston course.
This technical course will provide a challenge for golfers with a bit of experience under their belt. It's a beginner's worst nightmare. Pars from the long tees are well earned, and many holes have a very unique feel to them, especially the way the water hazards are utilized. This is one of the Houston area's premier DG courses.
Cons: As mentioned above, shot placement is key. If you land your disc in the rough (ie wooded patches) you will pay, both in added strokes and from the thorn bushes your disc ALWAYS seems to land in.
Beware the lake, it enjoys eating discs when you shoot parallel to the shoreline. There is always a wind blowing down the shore incline onto the lake, which has a nasty habit of bending even hyzer shots (RHBH) hard anny to the right to be swallowed by the deep. Also will need to cross the river several times. Walking down to the lone bridge gets old fast.
On rainy days, the front nine quickly turns into a giant puddle, so unless its dry, be ready to shoot through ankle-deep water on several holes.
Other Thoughts: Bring shoes you don't mind getting wet (maybe even swimsuit) since there is only one bridge over the river, and several holes where you have to cross over it (its only a foot deep, but a little to wide to jump easily)
Overall, a fun, pretty technical course, very frustrating at times, like anytime you end up in the rough on the front nine. (or when you lose a pink wraith on an open hole with three trees and no water in play). But a solid course with more variety of challenges than any of the other courses I have played in the Houston area
