I love this course, my home course. A fun, fun course to play. Play by yourself or with your buddies in the afternoon, you don't want to get stuck behind the daily group of locals, but I love this course. Put driver up when you don't need it. Staff is terrific and you will meet great people.
Had hole in one on #2, bounced the ball off of tree behind green.
#3 Play left and with decent drive, you will have easy birdie on this short par 5, do not be long on approach.
#13 is not as scary as they make it out to be, hit drive to left of fairway and make 150 yard shot to green.
#17 You can drive green, but if you are long you will be struggling for par. Easy par to lay up-but if you are going to be a bear, be a grizzly and go for it.

This is one of the worst courses in the east Texas area. The course is too cramped and the staff are lacking in their people skills. If you lived in the neighborhood and just wanted at knock a few balls around, it may be ok. To me, just not a good course in any aspect of the word.

A nice, short course that's just blocks from downtown. Several holes really appeal to the eye. Fairways and greens in good condition. Very accomodating staff and friendly members.
