Terrible Conditions--Huge Disappointment!!

I have played this course several times over the years. I played recently with my son. The course conditions were awful!! The fairways had essentially no grass, the fringe of the greens were in bad shape and the traps were not well cared for. It was cart path only. I was not informed of the cart path rule or the shape of the course when I booked. This used to be a fun, challenging course in North Houston. I will not be back unless I know there have been major improvements. If the groundskeeper worked for me, he would be fired. If I was a member, I would refuse to pay my monthly dues until the situation resolved. Just inexcusable!!!!

Augusta clubhouse look-a-like

Kudos to the clubhouse architect is creating a great replica image of the Augusta National clubhouse. Not only from the entrance to the property but as you also approach both the 9th and 18th greens.

Good layout and challenging greens that rolled true and with good speed.

One negative, Pro shop staff seemed more interested in talking amongst themselves than paying attention to guests.

Fun former tour PGA Tour Champions Course

Although the PGA Tour Champions players weren't there long (2004-07), Augusta Pines was still good enough to host tour event, which means you can usually find good conditions on a better than average layout. I really like the par 5s, three of which are reachable in two with big drives, but they do present risk with water hazards in front the green. The 18th, with its island green, is a fun finishing hole. In fact, it's the second consecutive island green on the course, with the par-3 17th also having one. Couple this fun course with great practice facilities, a massive clubhouse and the excellent Massengale Golf Academy, and you can understand why it's a favorite for Houston area golfers on the north side.

Excellent conditions, massive facilities, good but not great golf course

Before you even tee it up you'll be taken aback by the massive clubhouse and practice facilities, all of which are first rate. The course was in great shape in February, and the greens rolled very smooth, fast, and true. It's a good looking course that manages to play through housing without it being obtrusive. Very wide from the tee, it's playable and not particularly difficult. If you're an architecture junkie you'll probably find several elements to pick on. The green contours are one dimensional. While some slopes are severe, there's not much internal movement to the greens; you'll hit a lot of putts pretty much at the hole. Another design issue I didn't love was the repetitive use of water in and around the greens. I counted 11 holes where water was in play on your approach, including all the par 5's and all but one par 3. All the par 5's will be 3 shot holes most of the time, which means 4 layups; kind of boring. Still, the good outweigh the bad. It's a pleasant golf course and one that I would happily play again.
