Had played this course two years ago in a morning round. Played this time on a Friday afternoon. Pace of play was much slower, made worse by a five-some with one walker two groups ahead of us. My opinion, five-somes should not be allowed anytime when the course is busy.

This links style course has wide fairways, healthy grass and is always in great shape. The greens are a fair speed with lots of undulation. The rough is impossible to play from if you're fortunate to find an errant shot. Be ready to hit provisionals if you think you off course. The rough can cause pace issues if groups start spraying it. Really a fun course the front nine usually is considered the easier side. The staff is terrific, always friendly and helpful. Worth the visit if you are in Lubbock.

Thanks to the front desk for allowing me to go out a little earlier so I could get to go yo the Texas Tech football game. I still had time to use the practice range. Nice perk. Paired up with another family who came in to see their daughter (Meg was a good player!). Fairways are in good shape for mid September. Greens are gentle enough to hit from outside 150. Bunkers we'll maintained, but stay out I always book a tee time before I get into town. Worth $60.

My golf partner was unable to make the tee time due to an injury inside the cancellation period. The pro approved cancellation of the green fees. This sort of customer service is not unusual at The Rawls course, the staff is always very courteous.

Played on a day that was 100 degrees and windy. Course is hard, 99 traps in total. Great elevation changes. Due to natural landscape if you're alone and your ball is out of fairway, forget it you're NOT finding it. Definitely going back in the future.

Course is great but not first time friendly at all. There is no map on scorecard, or at any hole except #1. Spent at least half our time trying to figure out where to hit. Twice hit into wrong fairway because we thought that was where group ahead went.

Greens had been aereated, so can't say if they are good or not. Some sand traps have the tarp or whatever is underneath the sand sticking up in places. Not fun to hit something just under the surface in bunkers. Awesome layout, will most likely really enjoy next visit.
