"Great challenging wooded course! Super hard and super fun"
Feb 21, 2023
"Great hidden gem in the Sam Houston National Forest. Excellent signage, good upkeep, nice variety of shots. Some of the lines are REALLY narrow, so for an intermediate player just a step above a noodle arm, several holes are challenging. Good theme, as well, given that the Texas State Prison is a few miles away."

"Had a birthday round out here with my son, and the owner Steve played with us. It was an instructional round on rollers. The man is amazing I half expected him to roll across the water. If you want to have a really good time on a beautiful course hurry up and get here"

Apr 21, 2022
"Needs clearer hole layouts at the tees. I had to walk ahead on half the holes to find the target."
Mar 21, 2022
"Good course, fun variety of shots. Very relaxing out there, only thing I didn’t love is some holes don’t have clean lines, and it was just kinda luck if you get a putt or not. But fun course with a good mix, worth the trip. "

"great course super technical and difficult lots of tunnel shots that need power and finesse. they really need to mow the grass out here though. also, a sign that reminds golfers there is water over the hill obstructed would be very beneficial for first time players. "

"Great updates since last time I was here, this course will just beat you up if you’re a little off. Pretty hard technical lines everywhere. "
Mar 23, 2021
"Great tee boxes with good footing. Fun theme for the home names such as Jail and 1st offense. Most baskets were visible from tee. Good signage between basket and next tee except maybe between 9 and 10. Schedule a round with Steve for some pro tips. Watch out for unseen water hazards between tee and basket on some holes. Andy the dog will retrieve if it floats. Hopefully my non-floating Avenger SS by the alligator will be found soon. :("
Mar 23, 2021
"Nice course. Great concrete tee pads. Good signage to the next basket. Fun jail themed course. Only 1/2 star knock-off for lack of good signage for basket layout at the tee pad. Friendly owner and only $5 for all day play. "
Mar 22, 2021
"This place is GREAT!! My friends and I had a group of 8 take a much needed trip from South Houston to the # Fun Course in Texas. Only a 1 1/2 hour drive to this beautifully kept and maintained disc golf course. The most hospitable people you could meet, and gorgeous setting! Challenging...YES....fun...an absolute blast. I would recommend anyone(novice to pro) to experience this. You will keep coming back for more, whether just a day trip, weekend"
Mar 8, 2021
"This is one of my favorite courses in all of Texas. Steve(owner) pays the utmost to attention and detail when it comes to this course. He's constantly working to clean it up and make it the best he can for the players. You can camp on site and enjoy the awesome sunset before dark! The tee pads are well made, great lines to shoot through, and amazing hospitality from the owner. "

Jan 24, 2021
"You need to play this course!!! Absolutely blown away by this course. Extremely unique with a wide array of all aspects of the game needed here. Very challenging yet forgiving on some holes. Excellent all around course extremely clean and well kept and designed as a one of a kind experience. The owner is extremely nice and down to earth offered us fajitas as we walked off the last hole. Do yourself a favor and make it a point to make this one of your regulars, you won't be sorry. Worth every $"

Jan 20, 2021
"This course is super tough, but a blast. Awesome layout, with every shot you can think of. Steve is an awesome dude, don’t bet him a dollar if he wants to go closest to the pin. Haha. But really no complaints for this course it’s awesome "

"Can’t say enough for the personal tour but nice touch Mike thanks...
Nice place come equipped with every imaginable shot you’ll need them all. Nice corridors alleys gaps and lines to hit. Couple of ponds to miss as well...won’t forget death row any time soon! "

"Fun!!! Very technical 🙇🏻"
Oct 29, 2020
"If you’re a disc golfer and like Shawshank redemption you will enjoy this course more. Fairways can be very challenging with controlled shots and if you hit them you feel rewarded. A course you could play again after a round. "

Oct 2, 2020
"Must play for any disc enthusiast! "
Sep 29, 2020
"Great course, but not an easy course. This course is what John Burge Park in Conroe could be with a little care and maintenance. Like the theme and the add-ons, especially the tunnel and 21. The uphill shots are really challenging if you've never played a hilly course. You will definitely get your exercise. Owners are real nice folks. Only gave it 4.5 stars because it isn't beginner friendly. If you think your game is on, play this course and get a wake up."
Sep 26, 2020
"Awesome course. Very technical. You’ll only need a putter, mid range and driver but you’ll need every single shot type in the book. Obstacles, ceilings,, hazards, elevation changes, switchbacks. It’s here. Owner is very kind and friendly, even offered us tips and examples. Gonna play this course every time im in Huntsville"

"Wish that it were kept up a little better. Some baskets are impossible to see from the tee pad with no real way of seeing them. Also, look out for pond shots. Lost one of my oldest discs out there"
