Not for the faint of heart!

The Island course in Kingwood is a fantastic challenge for golfers of all ability levels. There is ample water to negotiate, as suggested by the name of the course. The views of the lakes and rivers along the course are beautiful, and wildlife abounds. Today, the leaves were changing, and I tried to take a moment on each green to look back down the fairway and enjoy the vivid colors. The greens were smooth and a bit quick today, with one pin placement that sent my 30 foot uphill putt, which was one foot short, tumbling back to my feet for another run up the hill.
Of course, I just had to sample 5 of the traps, which have great sand due to recent refilling. I play the Senior tees,, but there are still 4 par 4s that I play as a par 5.... on in there and two putt. The par 5’s are all a nice challenge, with #6 and #18 as my two favorites. So, when you get the chance, strap on your “big boy or girl britches” and enjoy a great golfing challenge on the Kingwood Island course.

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.
