Winter golf in Houston

This Is a nicely laid out links style course. There are some bare areas where grass will be needed to repair come spring. Over all fun to play when playing winter rules. You know lift, clean, place on some nearby grass, then proceed. National has very nice range and 19th hole. For the price of all you can play golf. Best deal around town if you have the energy. I would recommend to anyone who has not played it. I also recommend you bring extra balls.

I played this course after the area had rain overnight and using a GolfNow Hot Deal. Consequently, the range was closed, it was cart path only, bunkers were wet and the ball plugged in a few areas. Other than that, it was a fun and challenging track. Greens were true and fast. The undulations on the course made for some interesting ball placement. I will be sure to make a return visit to the track at the earliest opportunity.

Fast

Fairways are acceptly thin considering the time of year. The greens are very good. Sand traps are terrible but that is due to time of year. Overall it gets high ratings from and well worth the Golfnow $23.

Houston Texas is a flat city.

A review with a few but's.

Played November 2nd. Course from tee to green was in pretty good shape. Many many divots in the fairway. BUT that is because many many golfers are too stupid to figure out why the sand containers are on the carts. Some of the tee boxes were a little rough, BUT that may because we are in the slow grow season.
Greens overall were pretty good. BUT there were several greens with weed patches. But did not really effect the putting that much.
Lost two balls in the water. Unfortunately the water was in the middle of the fairway on #12 and in a sand trap on #9. BUT that was due to the heavy rains we had two days prior.
Shot an 84. BUT that was most likely due to the fact I worked from 6 PM to 6 AM that morning and went straight to the course.
Had a chance to interact with the Head Pro. What a character. I like him.
Overall, a great experience.

Tough conditions, fun course

It rained a lot the night before so the course was casual water everywhere. That being said, it was in good condition and playable despite the lakes in the bunkers. For a Saturday the place of play was OK until the last few holes. Some tricky stuff in seeing where to hit the tee shot so I was glad to be with someone who had played the course before. With all the rain, the greens were still fast and very true. Would certainly play here again (and hopefully play better)
