conditions were very good...

While I've played the South course several times before, this was the first time out on the North.

The overall conditions on the course were good.
The grass was very good everywhere. The greens were receptive, well groomed and rolled nicely.

The loss of a star comes from the bunkers being absolutely atrocious. Totally untouched for quite some time, not maintained by grounds keeping,
and unraked (even though rakes were present) with many washed out. COVID-19 not withstanding, they should have been better than this, especially at the price point of the greens fee.

Pace of play was very good. But, the group in front of us consisted of two golfers, with two non-golfer cart riders. On the twelfth hole, the two women riders decided that they should start hacking it around and caused significant delays in play. They were obviously not golfers, swinging and missing, dribbling or skulling the ball on most contact, leaving the cart parked in the middle of the fairway in the approach area of the green while chasing the ball around....etc...
No clubs, not properly dressed, and very unlikely to have paid greens fees?

While this is a problem no matter what, it wouldn't have been an issue for us if they had kept the pace of play and stayed in contact with the group in front of them. But, by the time we had reached 18 there were just under three holes between them and the group in front. It was just ridiculous, especially at a golf club at this level.

The only other issue was lack of mask wearing in the clubhouse, customers, not staff.

Great course

The course was in great condition. It definitely provides a challenge and punished bad shots. I loved the challenge of it. The staff was super friendly. I will be back to shoot lower next time.

Overall course in good shape, but bunkers unplayable

Pace of play was great; about 4 hours. Greens, fairways and tee boxes are in good shape. The bunkers are unplayable, They have have very little sand, and what is available is hard packed. At this price I expect better, and can pay less for better conditions in this area. Will not return until things improve.

Winter Play at Blackhorse

I used GolfNow to book a “Hot Deal” for Blackhorse North. When I arrived I was greeted by a smiling staff member in the pro shop. After a bit of conversation we realized that we had played against each other in high school basketball 43 yrs ago.! What a small world !
I was paired with a young man from North Carolina and another from Arizona. They were gracious and respectful. They played from the tips while I humbly tried playing from the Men’s Blues. The day was sunny, the fairways were in excellent cont. The sand traps, which I frequented many, were impressive in depth and all had the nice soft white sand to hit from. The greens were fast and immaculate.
Unfortunately, I didn’t play well but I couldn’t have chosen a better day or course to play !!!

It’s been along time

Have not played in 15+ years. Good shape. Only issue was no Marshall at start. Had to figure it myself. Ended up playing alone behind a foursome. Played two balls all day until I caught with another singe and played back 9 with him.

Most enjoyable round in years!

Came back to Houston to visit my daughter who has been working from home for 45 days and I decided to play a round of golf. I have not lived in Houston for 6 years since retiring so I was not up on which golf courses were in good playing condition but I took a chance on Blackhorse and was more than happy with all aspects of the course! Great greens, great fairways and tee boxes, staff was helpful and courteous, all things considered I had a great round off golf and would recommend Blackhorse to anyone!

Worth the Drive

Course was in great shape for early December. Challenging layout that doesn't get old. Worth the drive if you are in Houston.
