Bombs away

Great old course. I believe if they put some money into it, it could be one of the best courses in Houston. Once you get back to the tips the course can be extremely challenging. Lots of undulation, great design. A lot of the greens have a them of being protected by a front bunker. Overall had a great time. My two “dings”’to the course are 1) front was wide open, back was extremely clogged, wait times were unreal 2) Greens could be in much better shape, tee boxes and fairways were ok.

Love the layout

Course has a great layout. Course went through a rough time last year with greens etc but they have been working hard to get it back into good playing shape. Greens are now much better, a tad slow. Some bunkers and tee boxes need some work still but overall fun course and friendly staff.

Greatly Improved!

The course has made great strides in the last few months. Greens are very good except for not enough players repairing ball marks.. I’m very pleased to see the improvements.

Golf carts

When you book a tee time for Battleground through GN, its states that the price includes a golf cart....what they don't tell you, until you get to the course is that's it's a "half cart, which means you may have to share it with someone. THIS NEEDS TO BE MADE CLEAR WHEN YOU BOOK A TEE TIME!!!! Please fix this problem of advertising and notification......its misleading!!!

Great Conditions

Very cleaver to offer shotgun start on Christmas eve so golfers and staff could all get home to family. Conditions on the corse were excellent. Greens were smooth and fast. Bunkers were all playable. Rough was reasonable. I’m very glad to see all the recent improvements. Keep up the good work!

Great test of real links golf

This course is a real links course minus the grouse. It’s layout and , by design, copies the links courses in the British Isles. It is not a links type course. If you’ve ever played a true links course with its uneven lies, deep bunkers and run up greens, this may be a disappointment. But if you want to play on a traditional teeing ground. Then this course is for you. Greens were well kept and groomed. The staff friendly and other amenities very nice.

Fishing Tournament

Show up to play my round and staff tell me that they are having a fishing tournament on the course. They said we would have to play the front 9 twice and as I was finishing hole 9, there was a back up on hole 1. I ended up leaving after 9 because too many people were waiting for too long and didn’t want to play a 6 hour round.
Would be great if golfnow knew about stuff like this so that you guys would have put it under the notes. If I would have known, I would have gone to Golf club of Houston instead.
Next time the course should think about having the fishing tournament later on in the day around 3pm.

Pace of Play and Tee boxes

I love, LOVE this course. Great layout and challenging holes. Just enough water to make it interesting. They have improved the greens tremendously and I'm thankful for that. Time to invest in the tee boxes. There are about 5 holes with very uneven tee boxes. Sand traps should be next on the list. Most of them don't drain very well but in all fairness...the area has had lots of rain. My last comment for this round. Started at 9:15 and ended after 2pm. Hit, wait, hit, wait. hit, wait.... never saw the Marshall once... It would have been nice to know he was encouraging the several groups in front of us to move along even if it didn't help pace of play.

Another Battle at Battleground

Another challenging round at Battleground G.C.! The course was wet from recent rains but the temperature was mild. Because of the wet ground there was not a lot of give to the turf. Two low handicappers joined my group and they played to their games. Battleground has some hidden water hazards so it's good to review their guidebook. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. I recommend Battleground to the experienced or new golfer.
