One of the top public courses in Greater Houston

I had heard that Eagle Pointe was good, but I had heard that about other courses in the Houston area and was usually let down. Flat and wet land doesn't lend itself to great golf courses, and Houston has more than its share of wet, flat land. Eagle Point is an outlier, and sits very comfortably on rolling, mostly secluded, land. You know you're in for something different on the first tee where you start with a downhill tee shot to a side-hill landing area where the lay of the land will steer your ball toward a natural stream that zig-zags all along the left side of the hole. That same stream then veers right and crosses the fairway, challenging you to carry it - or layup - on your uphill second shot into the Par 5 first.

The greens are varied and in great shape, as were tees, greens, bunkers and roughs. I would really have to stretch to find something critical to say, with the low hanging fruit being the comparatively weak and uninspired 17th and 18th holes. Both holes sit on the flattest part of the property and are out of the step with the rest of the course in both look and shot values.

Hidden Gen in Southeast Texas

Just northeast of Houston this course is a pleasure to play and unusual for the area because of elevation changes. Always great conditions and rarely is it crowded.
Heavily wooded but expansive fairway make this course a fair test of golf. Keep an eye out for Bald Eagles as they are known to nest in the area. A back to nature experience!

A gem, as always!

I live about 45 min away so I play here 4-5 times a year. Course is in great shape, as usual. My first time to play after turning 55 so moved up to the green tees. Since I'm not a bomber, moving up makes the course lot more manageable. Watch the hidden creek on 16, from the tee not visible. And the water on the left at 18 is closer than you think! Again, a favorite of mine, top notch course.

Great Course

The course is well-maintained, in excellent condition with enough variation in hole design to keep play interesting. The slope rating from the blue tees tells the story of its difficulty. Unless your really accurate off the tee or a long hitter, save yourself some difficulty by playing the green tees which are almost 6000 yards. I wish I lived closer to it so I could play it more often. The mosquitoes were not an issue this time. They were a menace the last time I played here. If it hadn't been for the twosome in front of us who took 25 minutes to play the first hole and then an average of 15 minutes per hole after that, it would have been much more enjoyable. While I know 15 minutes per hole is average for a foursome, a twosome should be able to play much faster. After skipping over them at 6, the pace of play was much more enjoyable.

Great course

Have played here 3 times now. The course is an excellent layout. Staff is very friendly. Only problem was the grill had hot dogs and turkey or ham sandwiches because the grill was closing early. Was looking forward to a chicken club at the turn. Being it was only 1:00 very disappointing. The girl behind the counter was extremely nice and accommodated us as much as possible. It was extremely windy but still shot a decent score. Most greens rolled fast and true except 2. Maintenance crew would not get out of the way or would drive in front of us when we were hitting our shots. Great day though.

Nice way to spend a Sunday.

Teed off at 11:30 and were off the course in3.5 hours as a 3 some. Some interesting holes but if you have never played it get the yardage book or as the pro. Club selection on tee box is key for some of the shorter par 4. Greens had recently been dressed but were receptive and fast rolling well. Worth the extra drive if you can get a discounted rate but even at online rate of 50 not a bad price for good course in good shape.

My new #1

This course is my new favorite in the Houston area. Played just two days after a some bad weather and the course was in great shape. Greens are very true and fast and the tree lined fairways make hitting the fairways a must . This course is a bit off a drive for me but it is definitely worth the trip.

Eagle Pointe Playability

We arrived at the golf course 45 minutes before tee time and were greeted by the staff. They were very helpful and friendly. The golf course was a little damp due to some recent rains and heavy humidity. The golf course is a must play if you are in the Houston area. This course is very challenging from the back tees. I highly recommend anyone of all levels to play this course.

Complete challenge

This course is much tougher than it appears. Each 9 have what I call 'amen corners'. Number 6-8 on the front and the last three on the back are killers.

Number 16 is the most beautiful and absolute monster par 4. I am not sure how anyone can reach in 2. The greens are very true which makes getting on them in regulation a great chance at birdie.

Great course!

I've heard about Eagle Pointe from numerous golfers I've played with over the years and I have to say, I am rather upset I haven't made the trip earlier! This course is a gem right outside of Houston. The course was in great condition and I was very surprised with the elevation changes the course possessed. The course layout was enjoyable, although you can get into trouble on version holes if you are playing the course for the first time (there are blind shots on a few holes. The greens were rolling as true as possible and I did notice the staff was watering the heck out of the course. There is some construction going on regarding the pro shop, as the was in a temporary location (aluminum trailer in the parking lot). Overall, I WILL be making the trip back out to this course. Great course for the price!

Eagle Review

By far the best course in the area. I live across from one of the best courses in the Houston area, but don't play because of $$$. Saw deer on the course for the first time during round.just wish they would offer some hot deals every now and then.

Forgot how great the course was

It has been several years since l have play the course due to distance. I was blown away by the condition. This is a must for someone who wants to play a course that may be a bit far to drive, but it is well worth it. The condition of tee boxes , fairways and greens were great. Hats off to the staff. I will certainly make the hour drive again and pass the word around.
