Greens are in scary bad shape
Was driving to Colorado and decided to stop by the Rawls course. It’s been on my TX bucket list for some time. Saw the last review from a month ago saying the greens were horrendous & thought there’s no way the Rawls Course would have unplayable greens. I was wrong. Hopefully they can bounce back because I felt like I was playing a muni with beautiful fairways.

Greens are horrendous
This course is really struggling this spring. Not sure how they messed up their greens so bad but the superintendent doesn't know what he's doing. They did their aerification about 2 months ago and the greens have never come back after. Lots of dead spots and only maybe 2 greens are rolling decent. The driving range is really poor quality as well. Horrible quality beat up range balls hitting off of sand. 60 bucks is way over priced right now for the worst greens in town. Shadow hills, LCC, and even Meadowbrook have done a better job with green upkeep.
Only in Lubbock, Texas can it be 20 degrees one day, then 70 the next! Thanks to Rawls for keeping their course in tip top shape in winter!

Greens Not Up to Par
I have to say I was disappointed by the shape of most of the greens. When I played over Father's Day they rolled true and were in prestine condition. Course is still the best in area but feel as if care for small details dropped a little.

Ridiculous pin placement
The fairways were in great shape. The rest of the course was average at best. The pin placements were borderline illegal. They allow their maintenance guy so to put a blindfold and just stab the pin wherever they want. Half of the pins were placed on a slope which made the shots that I stuck 2 feet from the hole impossible to make. This course is difficult enough where you don’t have to punish casual players with ridiculous pin placement.

Best public course in Texas
Played all the top courses, i think this is best in Texas.
Might be best public course in West Texas/Eastern New Mexico
Course was fun to play. It is the longest but the sand traps throughout forces you to think about your next shot.
All you can hit range, chipping, and putting is awesome.
Talking about putting, the greens are fast but true. Once you learn the speed you are good to go.
Look forward to making a monthly visit.

Bad tee times
We booked through GolfNow for $50, course charged us $85. We had to haggle to get our $35 back after the round.
Your tee time system still needs improving.

It was a beautiful day for golf so Rawls course we played. Greens were good, tee boxes a little dry and fairways were good. Overall experience was good!

Thank you for the 5-star review!
If you haven't yet played the Rawls Course--do it!
On a 65 degree day with no wind, I was able to play by myself and finish in 3 hours.
Course was much more defenseless without the customary winds.
Great way to spend an afternoon in Lubbock!
Thank you for the 5-star review!
The only down side to Rawls is pace. I heard counter person explain on the phone they were short handed. Play was stacked by people jumping out of line at the turn. There were three groups waiting on 10 when we turned. We did not stop and the group we had been following stopped, went to their car,and the bar, added a player and then demanded they get back into the line in front of us. To save stress we allowed it. Then they stepped up hit 3 out of 4 balls into the water and then all hit second shots not from the drop but from the tee. Would suggest they NEED pro active marshall at several spots on the back. We had a marshall ask us to pick up play and WE had been waiting until one from our group hit an errant tee shot and we took some time to find it we moved quickly back and waited on the group in front of us and experienced another very long wiat at the 17th tee . I LOVE this course but 5.5 hours is a very long round in the heat.
Fun Play and Layout
I enjoyed the course and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Fairways and greens were in pristine condition.
Only suggestion would be for the course to provide better directions between some of the holes. First time players might get turned around like I did.
Nonetheless, the course is a must play if you are in the area.
