Need improvements

I have been a kind of regular to this course but i feel it is time to stop. Between the temporary greens, the bad greens, the bridge construction and the slow pace it is hard to find satisfaction. Slow pace is the worst actually. Marshall simply does not control the slow players and some group of players just dont care to slow down all others.

Greens Redo

The course is very enjoyable to play. Must use every club in the bag, I like that. Unfortunately, several greens are under repair, temporary greens are set up. Some greens are sanded, and others have not been mowed in awhile. Hospitality shack was closed, not good on a hot day, temperature was in low 90's. Staff was friendly. When in shape , great value for the money. Excellent practice facility. Will play again in the fall.

Needs some work

We played during the twilight hours and were supposedly the only people out there but instead we ended up being sandwiched on the back 9 from groups that seemed to pop up out of no where.

We also had a group of teenagers standing in the middle of the fairway on hole 18 fishing in the water hazard and talking while we were trying to finish up. I get it was the twilight hours but dealing with people making a second round - causing pace of play issues and pedestrians standing in the middle of the fairway did not make this course worth the price.

Battle Ground

Quite a nice course, though the are on a few temp greens which they notify people of. It is a bit over crowded which ruins a nice casual pace as you always have someone breathing down your neck. About the average for a popular course though I guess. It was a Sunday and the snack bar was closed. They also let the cook go early inside at the Bar/Grill which was annoying as we were famished and could only get candy peanutbutter Crackers and Chips.

Lots of potential

The course has everything you would want in a course. Excellent club house, practice greens, practice range, 3 hole practice course even, but the greens are a disaster. Some are completely unplayable and a second green has been cut into the fairway, throwing yardage completely off. Beautiful course otherwise, but I wont play again until the greens are fixed.

Worst course I’ve played in Houston

The price was fair but no warning that they have essentially let the entire golf course be reclaimed by Mother Nature!! The greens were so bad that I find it hard to believe they actually let people try to play. No way to play a serious round of golf under those conditions. These are a few of the many reasons this is the worst golf course I’ve played in Houston in my 12+ years here. Save your money and play elsewhere!!

Horrible greens

These are the worse greens I have ever seen. A few holes have alternate greens because they are ao bad. The actual greens have sand, dirt, and weeds groing out of them. Ive never hit a green before and landed in a sand pile. If you want to practice your driver and irons its fine but if you want to keep score or play an actual round of golf, go elsewhere.

Golf Now should be ashamed that they do not let players know that there are a number of temporary greens and that the rest are suffering from a bad winter.

Very poor course conditions

The greens are absolutely atrocious, charged 54 per person. Fairways aren’t any better. It was a complete waste of time. One bathroom stop for 18 holes because one is out of service. One water stop for 18 holes. Cannot bring outside coolers in. Do not waste your time or money. Greens are being reworked poorly at that. The existing greens are more like sand bunkers.

Good course bad greens

Overall the course is very well taken care of except for a few weeds here and there but the greens are awful. Most of them have very little grass and are mostly dirt. There are a few good ones. But for $27 it’s not too bad

Greens are worst I've ever seen in greater Houston

I've played this course at least a dozen times over the course of the last 6 years. Paid to play a round here and was totally disappointed by the condition of the greens. Greens were terrible. They were the worst I'd ever seen in greater Houston. The guy in the pro shop (Mark) was nice but after our foursome got to the first green we immediately went in to ask for our money back. We were directed to go get a refund from GolfNow and after calling GolfNow they advised that Battleground should have refunded the money to us. Disappointing how the course is being handled right now. Honestly they shouldn't allow anyone to pay given the terrible green conditions.

Greens are beat - but otherwise great

I'm really torn by this course because for the value, you can't beat it but they appear to have had some infection with their greens and they are almost all shot to heck and are unplayable. It's sad because otherwise the course is GREAT, but if you like good greens don't play here because you will leave frustrated. I'm a hack anyway so who cares... but caveat emptor!
