Course is fair

Plays ok, course needs more maintenance. Bunkers are hard as concrete and greens have different types of grass.

Needs some dry time

Hole# 14 fairway has not been mowed in a few weeks and hitting out of the fairway was like hitting out of rough.
Makeshift cart path between holes 6 and 8 is a disaster waiting to happen.
Greens laced with poa annua making putting difficult.

City Course @ College Station

We found the course to be rather challenging with tight fairways and angler greens unfortunately there has been so much rain in the area the ball would stick and of course cart path only with a lot of spots you’d lose a shot if not leaced up tight but we will play it again on our next trip to town.

Course is BOGGY right now

I play this course regularly and it is excellent for a good price. With all of the rain lately it is just an absolute swamp. The greens are good overall and the tee boxes are fine but the fairway are hit or miss. I hit some great drives that would end up in a bog right in the middle of the fairway! If we get some dry weather it will be in great shape but right now it is just boggy and squishy all over the fairways.

Lovely Tree Lined Course

The course was in excellent condition with nice green fairways and fast greens. Although there are lots and lots of trees on the course they are not detrimental if you hit a fairly straight ball. The only downside was that there was a few water hazards that didn't appear to be marked and we had no idea where the hazards were as we didn't have a course planner.

Overall, it is a great course with friendly & helpful staff. I would definitely recommend playing it if you are in the area.

Fun but tough

Have played this course several times. Today was very hot and I shot 5 strokes over my normal score. The cart paths need work, but the course itself is in good shape.

Average Local Course

There are a LOT of trees on this course. The fairways are tight which means this is not a course for the beginner/amateur.
The tee boxes and fairways are kept in pretty good condition. The greens aren’t consistent at all though. Some roll super fast and other act like your putting through molasses.
The staff comes buzzing by while your teeing off without a care in the world and they’ll randomly cut across the fairways right in front of you.
Pace of play suffers because this is a BUSY course. You will literally be waiting at each tee box.
The club house staff has always been nice and carry clubs, clothes, balls and other accessories in stock.
Honestly if your a 0-10 handicap then this course would be fun for you. I won’t be back for a while as the greens staff ruined my last two rounds here, but I think it is worth checking out if you’ve never played it.

Sigh

Fairways were in good shape. The greens were recently punched and sanded. No way to read any potential break or judge the green speed. No aerification warning. Most greens had bird manure for fertilizer surrounding them forcing me to chip any shots around or next to the green. Moved along easily until ran into several groups of five playing skins game on 14 and the rest was agonizingly slow. First and last time played since city of Bryan took over. Guess all the slow money games amidst sand baggers will move to this course.

Downhill after becoming the city course

This course was never the absolute best, but was always a fun 18. The staff is alright now, but not as friendly, and the greens are not in as good of shape as they've been. Also, a lot of projects in progress, mainly trees being maintained, that are just left in piles, some are just off the fairways.

Good round!

Hot in Texas that day. Little to no breeze. Greens were firm but friendly. Fairways well watered, but still a little soggy in shady areas. Shot my best round to date on this course... Great experience overall...

The worst ever

This course has been around for a long time. Has always been a tight tough course kept in pretty good conditions.
The City of Bryan recently took over maintenance of the course and it’s the worst ever!
I don’t plan to play there again unless something changes!
Very sad to see...

Overall great course and fantastic value

This is my favorite local course due to the hills, trees, and wandering nature of the course. Greens are in pretty good shape, a few bunkers are wet, and some of the tee boxes (especially the par 3's) are very hard. The driving range is very basic but everything else is just great love it.
