Course was in summer transition with greens, fairways and tees all aerated, which I why I probably got such a good rate. The pro shop staff were great as was the starter. Got paired up with another single and had a great time!

Greens quick but not lightning, always true. Most fairways real good, a couple bad spots on a few, but not too bad at all.

Very nice folks, and the GolfNow rate was awesome. Just a twosome, we finished in 4 hours teeing off at 3:40.

Thank you!

This is the 2nd time I had the opportunity to play this course (had to pay up a bet). Truly enjoyable and well kept. The pace of play was VERY SLOW (almost 5 hours), but it was a Friday so I’m not going to go overboard. Tons of singles that they should have paired up. Was able to pick up a Hot Deal for $75 each and was more than worth it. Will definitely play the course again!

Aside from walking into clubhouse to check in and a gentleman fussing at them because they left him out there with a dead golf cart for over an hour then the ironic aspect of our golf cart dying on the 2nd hole, the day was awesome. First time playing GCoH and the fairways here are better than most greens around the Houston area including Blackhorse and Moody Gardens. Awesome layout, awesome staff, awesome amenities, etc. Couldn't ask for anything more.. well a fully charged cart would be nice. :-)

They day I decided to play happened to be on the warm side with real feel temp around 103. Aside from that the course was incredible. The greens were speedy, but not tough to read. Fairways were good and the rough made you pay. All the traps, which I saw plenty of were perfect. That's what you get 2 months after the Houston Open. This is one of my favorite courses in Houston and for that rate you gotta play.

Clearly a great golf course in fantastic shape, and this combined with its notoriety as the Houston Open course equals high price. However the fact that they allow five-somes to play severely slowed down our pace of play. There were multiple fivesomes ahead of us, which held us up tremendously. These people were also clearly novice golfers, which of course is fine, but the Marshall should have taken charge of this and enforced either pace of play or allowed us to play through. The only encounter we had with the Marshall was him basically yelling at us and accusing us of not paying (despite golf shop telling us a receipt of payment wasn’t necessary for starter/Marshall). In the end, nice course but a let down when considering how costly it is. Save your money and play somewhere else to find a more overall enjoyable golf experience.
