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.

South course.

1st time on the south course. Very good conditions for mid January! Greens were great!
My only complaint was the 19th hole restaurant was closed at 4 pm. Don’t know why but I was looking forward to their great food. I had to settle for a Hoppadillo and some peanuts.

Good Golf Day

I have played this course before and my impression of today’s round was that the course has had a bunch of rain and looks as such. Carts had to stay on the paths which was not ideal. Greens were okay. Wish people would repair ball marks. Overall it was okay.

Great golf course!

It is an amazing golf course! Even the day before was a heavy rain day, the fairway was espectacular!. The course is challenging most of the time but perfect suitable even for a beginner or expert golfer. This was my first time but I’ll come back again more frequently, for sure! It is a “must” if you love to meet new (and beautiful) golf courses!

Nice track

Very nice course, especially for fall conditions. Nice club house.

I do have two suggestions: I wish they had a weekday cart girl on the course. And no access to the south course restrooms, as doors are locked. This can (and was) a inconvenience, as this accounted for a few missed shots. Please consider granting access for those patrons playing on the backside of the property.

Winter Conditions

Cartpath only but understandable after two days of rain.
Still very playable with great greens and traps.
Fairways thin but usually great during summer and fall.
Play both Course-fun and challenging.
