One hour to play 2 holes!!

I wish I could give this a better review, because I really like the track. I've always found the staff to be miserable, even the lady driving the beer cart.

But today, I actually walked off the course because of slow play: front 9 wasn't bad, though I was a single and the 4some in front of me refused to let me play through. On the back 9 two groups appeared out if nowhere, and after an hour playing two holes I gave up. No course marshal to be found.

I shared my experience with the gentleman in the pro shop who, no surprise, didn't really care.

So, I won't be back.

Hello, Ranman500. Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve. Thank you for playing Houston National Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Almost got shot by a home owner for getting my ball in his yard

There is no marshal to depict pace of play. We teed off at 10am and caught a group that started at 850 am. Course might be nice but completely mismanaged. Waste of time and money. I would not NEVER play this course again. There are better courses for you efforts. This is on top of a home opener threaten to shoot me over a ball in his yard, even though there is no trespassing sign insight.

Unexpected rain

Before making the turn rain made play difficult. That said, I was able to continue due to the superior drainage. Most courses I would be taking a rain check.

First time track

Great value with lunch included. The course and experience has highs and lows. Super friendly staff, good practice range, nice greens but shabby/hard fairways. Challenging approach shots and chips but friendly fairways. The front 9 played in 2 hours but the back was headed over 2 1/2 hours so we skipped hole 18 which looked really interesting it’s worth a visit unless you are a course condition snob... the greens were really very nice though.

My typical tee time. Twilight rates but plenty of time to finish this time of year. Greens are in remarkable shape. Fairways a bit soft from previous day rain. Good clubhouse with fresh popcorn and burgers with all the fixings, self serve.. TV both inside and out on the deck. Even better when peanut butter crackers are stocked.

Always a pleasure to play HoNat. The course is in great shape. The greens looked like they had been verti cut recently but this did not affect the way putts rolled. If there was anything I would change, it would be the guys in the pro shop need could at least pretend to be happy and enthusiastic!

Good Round

Bought the All you Can play pass for May 25. Checking in was easy and everyone was very hospitable. Range Ball were available for warm up and open spots to hit on the public side. The course was in fairly good condition, the fairways had a free spots that were bare but overall they were very playable. The greens were very good, but also very fast. There were a few Tee Boxes that were in bad condition but it looks as if they are working to get them back in shape. We played 27 holes and enjoyed the day. Will definitely go back again.

Played mid week in a foursome and played behind another foursome and was waiting on every shot. Greens had a lot of poana grass mixed in. Fairways were on the skinny side for grass. Price was ok for the round.

Links Style

I’ve always liked this course. Fairways are finally drying out after the early year rains, and it feels very “Open Championship-ish”. Plenty of roll, and lots of risk/reward.

Greens in good shape

Keep your ball in the fairway and you’ll be fine. Get off course you will find yourself in the moguls. Plenty of water that comes into play.

Fairways need some work

Played this course about 3 weeks ago and the greens needed some work, but this time the greens were in good shape. Fairways could use some work for the most part
