Course is tired

I have played AP before and since the last time, the course looks tired. Ditches need maintenance. Carts paths also in need of some repair. The greens had just been vertícut. So, they were not true at all. It’s not a $75 course. If I compare it to Golf Club of
Houston (twilight rate $60) no way does AP match up. We played two rounds and they charged us full rates both rounds. Unusual practice I’ve come across. Most courses charge you only cart rates for a replay.

We enjoyed the day but that practice left a bad taste in our mouths.

AP you can do much better! Step up if your gonna carry the name, Augusta!

Great Shape

First time to play and the previous reviews had me reluctant but but ahead and played. Conditions were superb! Fairways thick and even the rough was plush. Greens were excellent. Slow but in very good shape, receptive to approach shots and rolled true. Staff was friendly. Most courses in the area are all cookie cutter holes, this one makes you think. I hit 4 wood quite often off the tees and left driver in the bag.

Don't play here

Upon entering the pro shop we were greeted by two young men who obviously not golfers. Dressed unprofessionally in shorts and untucked shirts. Very chaotic in the shop. Golf carts are extremely bad. The golf course itself has little grass on it and a sandy bottom on each shot. No collars and greens are terrible. The clubhouse and practice area disguise this goat ranch. It is really public golf course as they are all about crowding the golf course. It will be a 5 hour round. The fairways are really bad. Clumpy spots of poannua everywhere. I was embarrassed to bring a client there. Never again. Privately owned so obviously only worried about most number of daily rounds. I laughed at $70. This course is worth $25. I play nicer municipals.

Was better before!

I agree with most of the other reviews. This course has seen better days. If you are playing after it has rained, I highly recommend waiting at least 4 days after a rainy day. We waited 2 days and the course was extremely marshy. One of the sand traps was actually a lake with a nice beach (bunker) leading into it. I really wish they would have informed us of how muddy it was out there.

All the difference

...read reviews from the Spring of 2019. Yes, the golf course has taken some hits, but what a difference six months makes. We just finished up our Club Championship last weekend - plenty of back slapping & high fives. It used to be we said the golf course was getting "better", now we say we're "good". Come see us & walk away with a "wow" for all the right reasons...Jon Montag, Director of Golf, jon@tour18inc.com

nice track shame about the condition

My wife and I played this course in early April. while the design and layout of the course were excellent it was let down the woeful condition of the course. If that quality matched the rest of the set up I say it was a don't miss. But sadly until that changes I argue you are better off spending your money elsewhere.

What happened to this course?!?

Wow. I played Augusta Pines Golf Club in Houston/Spring today. I always used to like this course and thought of it as a pretty nice and upscale course in the area. Not AAA, but still very good and worth the money. But man! Either things there have changed, or I have.

For one, the pace of play is horrible, and nobody seems to care. Over 5 hours for a round (I could have literally played two rounds in the same time, had I been allowed to play at my own pace). The first time I waited was the second shot on the first hole. And not just for a minute either.

The course is also in horrible shape. I guess it's March in Texas, but I was still surprised. It was "rough and cart path only". I get the cart-path only rule, but "you can drive in the rough"?!? Strange. If you find yourself up the wrong side of the hole on a par 5, you end up having to drive almost all the way back to the tee box on some holes before you can make it back to the cart path. Hmmm...

Also, while I get that the cart-path-only rule is necessary at times, they should at least tell you that this is the case before you pay. I certainly wouldn't have wanted to spend close to a hundred bucks on this mess. Slow pace. Cart-path only. Horrible course conditions. That's just a bit too much, all in all.

Also, it seems that some of the amenities have gone downhill considerably. You go into a restroom and there is broken stuff. Garbage bags used to wrap up broken toilet bowls, and by the look of it, that's been there for months. I also think it is strange when you see a course of this price category have old carts without a GPS. Sure, not all courses need carts with GPS, but then you can't compete in this price category. (And I think I played at a twilight rate no less... we certainly played into the twilight, considering the awful pace... the last 3 holes took darn near an hour).

Maybe they will get their act back together for the summer season, but man! I am not sure I will be back to check any time soon. :-( #disappointed

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.
