Great course. Friendly staff

I was scheduled to play golf with my son who’s a member. He was called away so they allowed me to play alone. Nice layout. Unfortunately it was cart path only.

Difficult, but fun

The Island Course is one of five courses at Kingwood Country Club, perhaps one of the most golf-centric private clubs in the country. It seems people either love it, or could take it, but I've always found it memorable. The par 5s are unique, especially the 18th, which requires three good shots, or two great shots, navigating not only an island green, but an island fairway as well.
