Best course in West Houston

I played the South Course and absolutely loved it. The course is located in a nice area and the staff is very friendly. The layout of the South Course is just right the combination of beautiful and challenging without being overly difficult.

Excellent Course and services

We played the "South" course. The parking, clubhouse, and driving range are all right next to each other - easy access. Holes 1/9/18 for the South course are quite a distance away, but signage was good at least. The course itself was in excellent condition. Good luck surviving holes 2-6, but the rest of the course is reasonably open; a bit long in some places since we played from the tips. Definitely want to play the course again.

I always enjoy Blackhorse, especially on the Golfnow rates. Greens were running a little slower than normal but still in good shape! All in all a very fun round!

Pace of Play Painful

Course in great shape. Pricey at 100 plus. 5 hours and 15 minute round on Saturday afternoon. No marshals or any concern for customer service once they have your money. Quite a drive for most plus painfully slow.

Tough and Pure

This course was in excellent condition. The South course gives you a challenging layout with tight fairways. The par 3’s are fair for players of all caliber, with 2 of them where you must carry your tee shot over water. The par 5’s are quite difficult but with a good 1st and 2nd shot you’re able to make a score. The facilities and staff were friendly and in top shape. Really enjoyable course and the grounds are great for any golf enthusiast.

South course

I play black horse at least twice a month
South course has always been my favorite but it has now become almost a muni

Tee boxes and fairways need attention.
Greens are ok but harvesting grass from the fringes makes the course shabby.

And charging $100 on weekends for a course that should be $50 to $75 max in its current condition is just wrong

Beautiful Spring Day golf

Course getting into better shape since winter was so wet; green rolling great & fairways improving with better weather!!
Always have like the layout of Blackhorse South, some challenging tee shots & tricky shots in the quarry... hole 16 not a favorite but unique.

Great layout. Pace of play was very poor.

4.5 hour round. Two groups on every tee box the entire round. No marshall presence until back 9. Addressed with the group causing the issue but didn’t change anything and didn’t ever come back around. For the golfers, play ready golf, pick up your ball and move on after triple bogey, keep up with group in front of you!!! Your ruining golf for everyone by playing so slow!! Course was in fantastic shape!!

Good track, lots of interesting shots

Some very tough interesting holes, not for the feint of heart! One of our foursome could only play 9 holes and they would/could not accommodate., saying they had no way to monitor . I think they should - charge for 18 and give rebate when you come in after 9 - pretty simple. Would play again, A bit pricey if not prebooked

Windy weather
Used cart

beverage cart

Playing on the South course with NO halfway house, and it's too far to the club house. I would like to see the cart come around more often than just when I'm starting, and then on 17 when finishing. Ended up not getting anything because of the timing, my opinion, the South needs the cart more than the North because you have the halfway house at the turn on the North. This has always been a problem since the closing of the South halfway house, otherwise, the BEST public course in Houston.

One of my favorite courses

This was my first visit to Blackhourse South and it’s already one of my favorite courses in the Houston area. It’s a shotmakers track which forces you to use all of your skills. The food and staff was equally enjoyable. Looking forward to my next visit.

South course

South course was in an O. K. Condition for the most part. I believe the north course it is in a much better condition.
It was a bit wet out there but the greens were ok and the fairways were cut so so no complains here but the north course it is in a much better shape.

Thank you.
