Great experience... course was great with exception of dealing with Houston area weather over last few weeks with inability to have dry time. Course was a little wet, but pretty good considering what Mother Nature has been dealing... Would definitely play again for this rate.
Challenging layout. Hit a good tee shot and you will be rewarded with a great look at the green. Houston has seen a lot of rain lately and the course was damp but in good shape. Enjoyed the range and clubhouse. Great value.
Thee Course where the Pro’s play.
First time playing this course and it was a great experience. Knowing that the Pro’s would actually play here during the Shell/Houston Open is a mind blowing experience.
Probably shouldn’t even be open for play.
I know there has been lots of rain but this is by far the worst condition I’ve seen this course in. Tee boxes were bare and could hardy be distinguished from the rough. Fairways were swampy and bunkers were not raked. Greens looked good with new grass and roll good but very very slow. It will be weeks (at best) before this is worth playing. Probably should not have been open for play.
Course lives up to its ratings
I came expecting a tour quality course and it was. Tee boxes, bunkering, fairways and greens were all excellent in January. The course presented a solid but not overwhelming challenge. It won't make my top ten courses, but was certainly a good way to spend an afternoon.
Poor Drainage Ruined What Could Have Been a Great Round
Great Greens, consistent, not overly slow especially considering overnight rain.
Fairways however literally ate tee shots. Piped drives down the middle of the fairway plugged and disappeared slowing play and put a real damper on what could have been a great round.
I was slightly disappointed when they told me it was cart path only. Th3 fairways were very wet and balls would plug when they hit. The greens were excellent however.
The course does not drain well and our balls plugged often. I guess it is due to the time of year but the course was not in very good condition compared to the first time I played it a couple of years ago. Hopefully they will get it back in shape before the pros come to play in the Fall. Would have been disappointed if we had paid full price but fortunately we were playing with a great HotDeal
Like the layout but rain from previous days made many parts of the fairway soggy. Was surprised that there are fivesomes on Friday afternoons. Fortunately, group allowed us to overtake them.
Fun but extremely soaked
Probably should’ve closed the course. Way too wet... would lose drives in the fairway. Course overall was nice
Very nice course.
No water buckets and no ball washers.
No trash cans either.
But very nice.
Great day considering it was Dec 20th !
Booked a two some with a rental set and forecaddie a week in advance. Before 11 a forecaddie is mandatory. At 11 or after it was optional and we wanted the advantage of course knowledge. I was advised when I called by the pro shop that they don’t really have stiff shaft rentals available. I was told at check in that they had one set but it was in use. This was a bit of a surprise and somewhat disappointing.
Forecaddie was friendly and energetic. He is a traveler yet he had pretty good course knowledge and really read greens well. That alone saved several strokes between my partner and me. I would recommend Rob to anyone.
Greens were in good shape and rolled quick. The fairways had a lot of soggy spots and we were limited to cart path only. The bunkers were raked well but seemed to be packed down. I had a more difficult time getting out of sand traps than I normally do.
The last 3 holes are wide open and it was a very gusty day of golf. With 35+ mph winds the last 3 holes were brutal. Overall a very good day.
Great course but pace of play a struggle
We enjoyed the layout and the conditions were overall above average - some very soggy areas and water damage but not the course's fault...Houston has been drenched recently.
Pace of play however is a huge issue. The course routinely lets out fivesomes. We were playing behind 2 consectuve fivesomes and our round ended up taking 5 hours on the dot.
The layout, course conditions, & friendly staff make this a great golf experience everytime I play there. There is nothing better in Houston.
Great time - better value!
Had a blast. Greens, tees & fairways are in phenomenal condition. Very challenging!
