Pace of play was bad and the greens had been punched some of the collars looked like the punched it with a chain saw
pace of play is an issue. there always seems to be one group holding up the course and we did not see a marshal until the 14th green.
Cypress Lakes Round
Cypress Lakes is a fun and challenging golf course that normally features excellent greens. But playing today we discovered that the greens had recently been aeriated, verticut and sanded.. The fringes had also been verticut. I understand this is a necessary evil that to be performed in order to have great greens but this was not the week. I took a guy out to play this course and sold him on the idea of the great greens. I am not sure he would come back. Our heartburn is that the course or Golf now should have alerted the public of this and let them decided to come out or not. I get it ... but it would have been nice to have dropped the price a few bucks or offer up a beer as compensation. that's all.
course needs to have marshal out to encourage slower players to either speed up or get out of the way.
Always a challenge
Great layout with large greens. Usually some of the best greens in Houston.
Second time playing this course. Weather was amazing. Only complaint was that it appeared the greens were just re-raked and were in pretty bad shape in most cases.
But this must be a one-off as I just played there last week and the greens looked amazing, so something must have happened.
Greens are horrible right now
They did some sort of work on the greens and their usually awesome greens were horrible. Bumpy and the sand on The greens has small rocks....and in rocks.
Give it until mid October at least.
Could use a little TLC as there was quite a bit of rough spots on the fairway, but greens were nice. Staff was great and layout was good. Only problem was the “Bro Golf” we got paired with. Really don’t like all of the loud music and shotgunning Natty Light. Definitely not the courses fault, but took away from a really good course. Would definitely go back though.
Too much confusion and course too crowded
Too crowded and with groups of 3 of 4 - too much talking and playing around! Others try to play the professional approach with measuring ball aligning their ball at every hole. The overall cadence of the game is hampered by the protectionist. Otherwise, ok!
Overall I like the course layout. It was in dire need of a mower and the holes on every green had been in the same spot for a long time. Worn out edges on every hole. Recently verticut and sanded but healing well. Hopefully it gets the needed attention soon.
Needs some TLC
The course is a little rough in places and could use some TLC. Specifically, greens are dry and hard, sand in traps is generally hard, tee boxes could use some picking up of the scattered broken tees, looks like somebody chopped wood in places. Never saw a courtesy card driving around. Also, despite COVID, course is back to putting 2 players in a cart - WHY? Guess they don't believe in proper protection for customers?
Great shape !
I had not played here in about 2 years or so. The course was in great shape. No beverage cart (it is 100 degrees). They did have a sign up on the pro shop counter telling players that though. Pro shop staff (Scott) never greeted me and kept on talking with someone else in the shop. One of the best public courses in Houston.
Grow green grass, not spread tan sand
Sandskeeper spreads coarse sand on greens about 3 times per month. Punches, aerates, verticuts, dyes, poisons, and fertilizes many times per year. 50% of the time the greens are bad because he has torn them up. Silica as no nutritional value, plus it gets hot in the Texas heat and bakes the blades and roots. One thinks the grass is healthier because of the green dye sprayed on the greens and collars. Sand has not been put in bunkers for at least a year-and-a-half, and after rain the bottoms are a blackish clay. It is almost like the sandskeeper is saying if I tear up the greens then I will maintain my job repairing them. Let Mother Nature work!
