Windy Day at BlackHorse

A lot of good things, my review observation would be if I was paying full price - the course is over priced and many areas of the course need ground work.

Blackhourse

I played the north side today. The course is finally off cart paths except for 3 holes. The course is very wet from all the rain we have had in Houston. The course needs a lot of dry out time. But other than that, the course is in good shape.

Played in a tournament so pace of play was slower then usual. North course is nice but not as challenging as the South. Front nice is the better and more scenic of the two. Course was in good shape but they are starting to price themselves out play for the average golfer. Need to rethink their green fees.

Disappointed

Golfed Friday morning the day after thanksgiving. Course was soaked and it was cart path only but when I made my reservation which was $109/person there was no mention of this being cart path only, if there was I would have booked elsewhere because I was with my grandpa and it is hard for him to walk all around the course. As course was soaked, you would think $109 would at least get you a towel and some ice.. we didn’t get either and had to deal with dirty clubs and balls. Very disappointed in Black Horse

Overcrowded golf course

The Hott deal I purchased online was worth the value to play the course but I will not be paying full price $85+ for this course. Let me first say that the staff is extremely amazing and great customer service. Tough was thick and very hard to play or just lose a ball. I went the day 2 tournaments were playing so the entire course was backed up. Then the staff let four twosomes tee off which backed up the course even more. The staff tried to accomidate and let us play the south course to finish out back nine but caught even more traffic. Almost a 6 hour round. Not sure if it was the tournament or the regular crowd but all greens had I repaired divot marks and players dragging their feet.

Nice course, but pace of play was terrible.

Course was in good shape, but the pace of play pretty much ruined the experience. We ended up skipping a hole and going around one group only to get behind another slow group. Definitely not worth the price when you have to wait 5 minutes before every shot.

Play south course if you can .

Nice day of golf . This was my second time on blackhorse golf course and my first time on the north course . I definitely prefer the south course , no sand in the bunkers , quiet noisy due to the main road close by .

But the course in general is nice to play . I’ll come back !

Both the north and south courses are great. It’s a good test of your game for sure. The back 9 of the south course is one of the best in houston.

Excellent player's course

A course with a few challenges without being overly difficult. Positioning is key to lower scoring. North Course is less challenging than the South Course. Great practice areas, with putting areas next to the 1st tees on both courses.
