Highlight of 2020

Due to the fantastic condition of the course, friendly staff, enjoyable company and how well I played, this was the best round of the year so far. It didn't hurt that I used a Golfnow monthly rewards so the price was right. Even had I payed rack rate it would have been worth it.

GCOH in Top Condition

Once again the GCOH was in top shape during our Thursday P.M. round. The pace of play was excellent. The course was in fabulous shape, and the greens putted true and quick. I only wish people would fix ball marks on the greens! Only complaint with course was that the tees were all moved around. The blues were moved up on many holes and moved back toward the tips on the long par fours.(three of them at 440 yds).

Golf Club of Houston

Played where the Pro's play. Course was in fantastic condition and greens rolled true. Great test as each hole presents a different challenge and you are made to think with each shot. Bunkers were in great condition as compared to other courses in town. Would gladly go back and play it again.

Great Course

Great course!
Pace of play was awesome. Marshal let me start on the back alone. Went through the 18 holes in 3.5 hours. Shot 79 from the tournament tees! Haven't played here since 2016. It's not the carpet fairway and green conditions I remember but well maintained overall. A bit pricey to be a regular here but worth the hot deal.

Disappointed in Customer Service

I have volunteered at The Golf Club of Houston for the Shell tournament for many years . The Course I believe is the Best in Houston . The course is Scenic with perfect fairways ,bunkers , and greens . Having said that about the course sadly I was disappointed with the customer service . On the 6th hole our cart stopped working . I immediately called the club house . Ten minutes pass no replacement . I call again . 20 minutes pass no replacement. I continue calling the club house and the lady answering seemed confused as to weather someone is coming or not . Finally after calling 5 times and waiting 45 minutes watching group after group pass us we received a new cart . From a customer service perspective from a course that charges what this course does they need to be better . I will be back because the course is Amazing but a great course with poor service will lose business over time . Hopefully it was just an exception to how things normally work . Thanks Will Mattern

Former Houston Open Course; Nice & Difficult

It is a great course and a fair fun challenge. Signature hole 18th is every bit as hard as it looked on TV. For the money, aim for a twilight round if you are not a low handicapper that can handle the demands of tactical tee shots. .

If you go out to Golf Club of Houston request Melvin as your caddy. He’s the man and an expert at reading the greens!
