The rate of play sucked. Came across 3 groups that took 20 minutes plus to complete a hole. Had to skip them so we only got 14 holes in due to light issues and slow play.

I played this round with a 7:42AM tee time on Golfnow. It was a price I had to take advantage of. The course is in fine shape with rough that will penalize you! The greens, fairways and putting were all great. The “rough” was another matter. It took much time to find your ball if you were able to find it at all. You had to either drive upon it or walk on it to find your ball. It was long enough to cover the ball totally! An example was hole 16. I went in the rough left of the hole and in looking for my ball, which I did find, i found five other balls people had given up hope of finding. I found them by walking up in them , not seeing any one of them otherwise

The course was in great shape and we enjoyed playing, except there were slower players ahead of us that held us up on every hole. When we finally decided there was not enough time to finish before dark, we headed back to the club house and saw 2 guys that were on boards & their phones. They were the reason for the log jam and it would have been nice for the Marshal to have taken care of the issue. Even though we lost the last 3 holes, we enjoyed the course. It would be good if there were more t-time discount offers for this course.

I am a member at Tour 18, it is by far the best value in the area. Course conditions are always very good and sometimes.... so close to perfect. This course has a ton of play.. always full. The reason, the fairways are plush, the rough is tall, but fair and the greens are fast and true.

Staff is friendly and very helpful... always ready to help. My only issue with Tour 18 is it’s failure to fix some of the original bridges on the course. The bridge coming over from the 7th tee box has been out of order... for years. Granted, it will take a great deal of money to fix but... it takes away from the Premier Golf level course it is on all other levels.

Overall, Tour 18 is a great deal. True test of golf and everything you need for a great day in the Texas sun....

It was a perfect day for golf, which is fortunate because the experience wasn't as great. While the course was mostly in near perfect conditions, on hole 2, the greenside sprinklers turned on just as we were teeing off. Fortunately, they had turned off by the time we got to the green. On hole 3, we didn't have such luck. The sprinklers turned on and remained on throughout our play on the hole. One of the golfers in the group had to putt through a giant puddle on the green. After that hole, though, we had no issues with sprinklers.

The marshall is another reason I dock a star from this review. We finished the front 9 in about 2 hours and 10 minutes. We stopped to use the facilities and grab a hot dog to-go, and made our way to the 10th. Apparently, the group behind us did not stop at the turn and made their way to the 10th as well and waited for us to tee off. The marshall was coming by and saw this and assumed that we were not playing quickly enough and told us to speed it up. So we got through the hole quicker than we would've liked. A couple holes later, he comes back around and tells us that people are calling into the pro shop complaining about the pace of play. At this point, the group behind us is no longer right on our tail. We ended up finishing our round in 4 hours and 10 minutes, which is much quicker than the 4 hours and 35 minutes suggested on the scorecard. My advice - if this guy tries to speed up your game, take the time to consult the scorecard to figure out if you are right on track or if you're running behind.

Thank you for the feedback. The sprinklers are on timers and by no means was this done on purpose, we do apologize for any inconveniences and will take a look at the schedule of our sprinkler systems. We also would like to apologize for our starter as a 4 hour and 10 minute round is right on track. We will have a conversation with our marshals, we appreciate you making us aware of the situation and hope that you will give us another try in the near future.

Got a great deal to play here for $30 bucks. Thanks golfnow! This course is always in great shape. Nice fairways with smooth and fast greens. However, All bunkers are unplayable right now due to the flood from hurricane Harvey. Not their fault though. The key to success here is to hit every fairway. If you land in the rough... good luck finding it! Every time I tried to hit the ball out of the rough it would go about 30 yards. Yup... its that thick!

The course was in great shape with the exception of the sand traps. But since we just had a hurricane pass through here, the course was not in that bad of a shape. One big disappointment though, was that the marshal did not try to speed up the playing of the players in front of us. We had to wait for at least 5 to 10 minutes to tee off on every hole.
