Use the "2 putt rule"

Ok, I did not read the reviews before playing but yes overall the greens are bad, but the tees and the fairways are not far from being perfect, just a little foreign grass that looks like its been spot poisoned so a couple of weeks it will be great. Not all the greens are bad, ,the back nine seems better and I actually made two birdies on the greens that were good. Some greens are needing to be weeded for crow foot and crab grass while others need to be re-grass in spots. All in all if you play the 2 putt rule with you buddies you will enjoy your day on the course. the Staff is friendly and the pace was excellent for a Sunday. I will be back but it will be about a month. Good luck in getting the greens back to hopefully match the rest of the course.

Had to leave before finishing front nine

I’m not here to bash, gripe, or rebuke; but to bring notice. The greens are deplorable. Can’t get a read, can’t land soft, and can’t reuse a ball for a two putt because of the amount of stuff on the greens. I’m guessing the stuff is fertilizer, not real sure. I love playing here and the staff is top shelf but I also don’t want to waste money.

Thank you for your feedback. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us. We are working to get everything up to par. We have projects ongoing to recovery the fairways and greens. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We hope to see you again soon.

Pastor,
We regret you did not see our course alerts online and posted at the club for the past month. The greens are transitioning from the damage from the severe floods/freezes in December 2018 and January 2019.. The grass has just recently begun to grow. All resources are scheduled in the coming month to address the recovery process. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and hope you will give us a visit when conditions improve..

Disappointing Greens

I’ve been here before where the greens were much better than today. It’s like playing “Plinko” on The Price Is Right. I believe that I would have 5 putts in the cup if the greens were halfway decent. Not sure if it was lack of maintenance or just time of the season.

West Fork Greens

I played here a few years ago when I first started playing the game. Today's round was good with a 88, could have been better if it wasn't for the "Plinko" style greens. I'm sorry to say but, the greens were horrible. Not one was even decent enough to have the ball roll straight to the cup. Now, I don't know if it's lack of maintenance or just the time of the year in South East Texas. At least five putts were misdirected due to the "Plinko" effect on the greens. I hope that they take care of the course ASAP.

Ricardo,
The greens sustained damage during 2 severe floods in December 2018/January 2019.
The beginning of the growing season is expected to provide improvement along with an aggressive recovery program. Hope you'll give us a mulligan this summer.

Terrible greens

Course layout is fine, but the greens were in terrible shape. They are some of the worst I have played on. There should be some mention of these conditions when booking tee times. Most of the greens At least try to find a 10 foot area with some level grass to place a pin.

Not too bad

Enjoyed the layout. The aesthetics and surroundings were nice. Staff was very friendly. The lies as far as grass on the course were pretty good. The greens rolled pretty good. Made four birdies. Haven’t done that in a while. Only problem is that that must have overwatered the free earlier in the year because there seemed to be a lot of mold or fungus on the greens. Overall I enjoyed the course. I will play it again.

Unfortunately we played this course today. It was absolutely horrible! The greens had mold,fungus and weeds. I wouldn't play that course again for free! What a joke. Attendant told us that 20 members this month have cancelled their memberships...I can see why! I wish I could upload a picture because my complaints don't do them justice. We've golfed there for year's but I assure you this was our last time! What an embarrassment to the golf community. The superintendent,GM and grounds crew should all be fired! I'm guessing Panorama will take what golfers(if any) are left. My guess is this course will be closed by the end of the summer.

Extensive flooding by the San Jacinto River early in the year coupled with freezes and excessive rain while the bermuda grass was dormant has been damaging. Recovery efforts are in the pipeline. Thank you for sharing your comments. Better days are ahead..

Terrible experience

The course is in awful shape. There is literally no grass on at least 10 of the greens. Marshall came around once, drove ACROSS a green to tell me to keep my cart away from the greens (my gps watch had me at 70+ yards from the front of the green) and did nothing the rest of the day to improve pace on an obviously backed up course. Rude, classless staff from top to bottom. Complete waste of time and money. In this area, Panorama is 10x better for the same price

Nice layout, bad greens

It had been just under a year that I last played this course and I was looking forward to my round. Tee to green, the course is great. Fairways are nice and wide and the layout is terrific. But once you get to the greens, it goes downhill. All the greens on the front nine were in terrible shape. Very little grass. Mostly dirt. When I went to repair my chip mark, the dirt just crumbled away! The back nine had 3 greens that looked very good. The rest were like the front 9. If they get the greens in decent shape this would be an easy 4 star course.

In Bad Shape

West Fork used to be my favorite course. I could walk you through all 18 holes from memory.
Recently, the course has detoriorated to an unplayable condition. Most “greens” have no grass and are spray-painted green to look better. Fairways are concrete. Sand Traps are typically clay or mud.
After this most recent round, my brothers and I decided West Fork is officially off our list of courses in the area. Sad to see it like this. Hopefully they can turn it around.

Thank you for your comments. The several floods from The San Jacinto River in December/January were harmful. The course is targeting recovery efforts as the growing season arrives soon. Surprised at commentary regarding bunkers as all were rebulit post Hurricane Harvey. A few have been eliminated and are awaiting sod.

Rough right now

This was our first time out in a while and the course reflected the difficult weather we’ve had. The greens were bare. We did a 2 putt max because the greens were so rough.
