Played with two locals at 8:15 am. The foursome of young bucks in front of us could hit the ball a long way but didn't know to what zip code. We waited for them on every shot thru 11 holes and never saw a ranger. By that time they had over 3 open holes. We came up on 12 tee and when they didn't offer I asked to go thru and they obliged. We actually finished in 4 hours.

The tees needed some work, lots of weeds, divots and some were not level. Fairways were just fair condition as you had to roll your ball over a lot. The bunkers were in good condition and well raked.The rough was just rough-stay out.. I would play again for the price, especially considering this time of the high season here..

Worse course we played in Southern Florida. Poorly maintained. It took us 4 hours to play 13 holes. When we quit, no one even asked us about taking our clubs to the car. Had booked the West course, when we arrived there was a couples tournament scheduled (shot gun start). We were 2nd tee time after them. Then they changed and put us on the East course in front of a group of 16. We would not recommend this course.

It was a very windy day. The pace of play was very good. Only waited 3-4 times the entire day. However, I thought the course was not in very good shape. The greens were fine, but the fairways had plenty of bare patches. The worse thing though, was that my playing partners had a cart with a dying battery. They called in for a replacement 7 times starting on hole 11. They finally brought out a replacement on the 16th tee box after I had pushed them around the last 2 holes with my cart. Completely unacceptable.

Pace of play too slow; took close to 5 hours! Had to wait on every hole?

Too many foursomes sent out without consideration to the pace of play. Furthermore, no course Marshall to speedup play.

Booked tee time same day on GolfNow website for a twosome. Arrived early for tee time and checked in at pro shop to pay. Waited approximately an hour after our tee time to get a cart. Course was well overbooked and there were many groups waiting at the starter booth. Golfers were visibly perturbed by the lack of cart availability and the overbooking of the course. We had booked the East course but were subsequently assigned to another twosome playing the West course. Pace of play was slow given the number of golfers booked. Course was in average condition.

A few weeks after playing I received an email claiming our group was a no show and re-charged my card for greens fees. I then produced my original receipt and emailed it to GolfNow as proof. So far the charges have not been reversed. It seems to me, amid all of the confusion, the course really shanked the ball on this one. Needless to say, I will not be returning to Woodlands.

Nice lay out and in good condition. Front nine we had a 2some in front of us and a 2some behind us. We were all moving about the same. We started 10 when we came around and a 3some in front moving slow. We drove around them and there were groups out in front that were not on course earlier. When we finished 18 there had been 4 groups waiting or playing the hole.

We were very flustered with all of a sudden all these people playing in front that were not there on front nine. We were not playing fast and we're in no big hurry, but didn't enjoy sitting 5 minutes at a time between shots. Totally lost our concentration.

Players were managed poorly. Thx

Really poor course conditions, the turf was chewed up by bugs, greens are soaked and deformed by play, trees and bushes not trimmed hanging all over the carts paths. I would hope for a big change before the season starts.

Overall, I would rate this course as an average course for south Florida but given the Golf Now price we received and that we were the first group off, it was a good experience. We booked the 7:00 a.m. tee time and were the first group off. We were able to play in 2 hrs 50 minutes, which is amazing for a Sunday morning. The course conditions were average. The tees were ok, not as short as most would like. It was difficult to discern the fairway cut from the rough, and the greens rolled ok but slower than average.

Seems like there is new ownership as there has been marked improvement in the presentation of the East Course.Greens had been spiked but I was informed but the course played well and in better shape than the last time I played. Morning staff was friendly and accommodating but the afternoon staff was slow to acknowledge our group when finished. Did not offer to clean our clubs or take our bags etc.

Overall a much better experience and it will get better as the improvements continue.
