The greens were running smooth and moderately fast course was in good condition
I played here a little more than a year ago, and had a terrible experience. The pace of play was terrible, they were working on almost every hole of the course, so it was loud and intrusive. This visit however, makes me think that was an anomaly. The course was in amazing shape. The fairways were excellent, and the greens were deceptively fast and true. I couldn't have been happier with my round, and definitely recommend this course, especially when you can find a great deal on GofNow.
Definitely Big League!
1st time on the tournament course and it's in great shape - even considering the hottest period in Houston, the greens looked to have been recently punched and have recovered extremely well. Fairways were in great shape. T-boxes the same and the ruff was VERY manageable. The course is LOOOOOONG! Played from the tips that were marked. Don't come out here if you can't control the driver tho and don't try and score well if you're not locked in on your long irons. Although you do have to grip and rip - you also have to place and think 2 shots ahead if you want to put up a good number - whether it be under 80 or 90. Leave the sub 70s to the guys who get paid! There aren't too many blow-off shots where you don't have to think it thru. There is a greater appreciation for the guys on tour and what they have to carry in distance and precision to the greens. So i wanted to see how i matched up (albeit no crowds - TV or $$ on the line). So here's how it went - (nobody saw me and it's darn arrogant but I am kinda proud) I'm 54 - I carry a strong 4 handicap. From the tips marked for play, I put a up a 75 - left 7lbs of sweat on the course - donated to the pond on 18 - and dropped about 30 Advil since (played Sunday afternoon and it's Monday morning). This course will leave you stiff from ratcheting up the driver..... BUT well freekin' worth it! I've played Sawgrass - Pebble - Los Colinas - Oakmont - and now GC of Houston..... This is WELL worthy of being mentioned in the same breath!
Course was absolutely perfect. Not a bad spot in a green and fairways softer than I've ever played. Definitely recommend this course!!
Was easier then I was expecting. Wide fairways and greens were receptive and not too fast. Staff was welcoming and hospitable. Only problem was that it felt like it was 120 degrees (drank about 2 gallons of water and was barely sweating)
Great Conditions in Summer Heat
I played this course on Saturday Morning. The course was in great shape, especially with the summer heat. Played the whole round in less than 4 hours. Highly Recommend
