I really like Panorama

Fairways are in good shape and getting better as we move into spring time. The greens are tough and quick and VERY will maintained. Love them. Staff in the club house, the starters and course marshals are great. Of all the courses in my general area and that are approximately the same price, Panorama is now my choice and will be playing 90% of my rounds at this golf course. Recommend you try it out if you've not been there.

I like Panorama

Advertisements in Golf Now say this course has only 9 holes. Actually 27 holes. Greens are really good, well maintained …. and tough, fairways are good considering winter time. The Course has a great mix of topography as well. It has become the course I will go to play rounds more that other courses in my area.

Are you ready to Test your putting !

3 years ago this course was in rough shape but they have done an Amazing job to turn it around . Like all courses in the winter the fairways are a little thin but the Greens are in Great Shape ! If your use to flat greens with a hole punched in them this course will be a challenge for you . But if you want to see the challenge that PGA pros deal with you will love this course . When I play Panirama I play for a good score but also play to get under 36 puts in my round . Get above the hole and you are really challenged . Deffinely give Panorama a try and count your putts !

Best day ruined by mother nature

Course is in great shape for winter in Houston. I had entire course to myself. No one wanted to play in 38 degree weather with 10 mph winds. Greens are perfect as always. I had the best score to date on this course going until the 12th hole. Then Mother Nature started dropped ice rocks from the sky that caused my ball to bounces offline on the 12th and 13th greens. All in all great day with the course to myself. Until hail froze and sent me home. Staff was great as always. Gave me a large coffee at the start of each nine for free.

Soggy, but better than most.

Soggy, but fairways were good and greens, as always, great. Come play and experience the slope and speed of almost Augusta National.
Cart gal was out on a cool day and the 19th hole has nice food and beverages, better than most.
Great gal in the pro shop and nice starters.

No pressure, we took our time, very casual as the group ahead played at a good pace, had a good lag with group behind us. Marshall was very helpful. Enjoyable game, will pay again very soon.

Great greens!

Panorama was wet but less than the rest of the courses I’ve played lately. Greens as always were slippery and sloped. Great for this time of year!
Great restaurant and beer selection.
Nice pro shop folks and starters!
Always enjoy playing here.

Tough greens

Greens are smooth as glass and way too fast for the amount of undulation. On four different holes, I missed 10 foot uphill putts. The ball went by the hole by about a foot and then rolled back and past me. Two of the four putts rolled off the green.

Wet but good.

Course was wet due to rain and cart path only but the tee boxes and greens were in great shape.
These are the fastest and most sloped greens that I’ve played in Houston! Very challenging!
The pro shop gal is a sweetheart, the starter very nice and the 19th hole had a nice beer selection and the “eagle burger” is awesome.
I highly recommend this golf course.

This has become one of my favorite courses to play. The greens are always in great condition, probably some of the best that I have played on and I've played on some tournament courses just after the tournament, Doral, Bay HIll, Key Biscayne and these are fantastic. They were probably rolling around 10- 12 the day I played. The fairways were in good condition but it's Dec. and the leaves in the rough caused me to lose a ball or two ( I know I should be in the short grass). Overall a great time, can't wait to get back!

Fastest greens in Houston

I love this course. Layout not really special compared to the other tree lined courses in and around Houston area. The greens on every hole is perfect. Bunkers are mud holes. Fairways are nothing to write home about. The greens however are.

Always a great time. I was just confused when the marshall told our group to speed up play when there was no one within two holes behind us. Guess he was having a bad day.
