Really Special Place
Had a chance to play with a couple friends that know a member this past weekend. A very special place that is the epitome of personalized service. The staff and the restaurant are second to none and I'd go out of my way to eat here again even if I wasn't playing.
The course is hidden inside a very exclusive neighborhood that employs 24/7 guards for security. The entire drive into the club signals "this is an exclusive place". We were immediately met by valet service - where our bags were taken - and we were escorted to the clubhouse and then to the practice area. The staff could not have been kinder - knew each of our names - and delivered our drinks directly to the practice area where we were warming up.
The course does not seem challenging upon first glance (it plays less than 7,000 yards). But looks are deceiving and this course challenges you to think thru every shot - every time. Rolling fairways can leave you with challenging lies that punish poor execution and planning. The greens were immaculate and some of the finest I've played in Texas. EXTREMELY fast. Speed control is a must if you ever get a chance to play a round here.
I mentioned that the course sits within a very (VERY) nice neighborhood with homes that carry price tags in the tens of millions. However, you hardly notice the homes on the hills as we were stuck by the beauty of the surrounding terrain. Abundant wildlife, turtles, and deer were ever-present.
I would highly recommend playing here if ever afforded the chance. Fingers crossed I get to come back someday, as this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I won't forget.
If you have the chance, don't pass it up!
As soon as you drive on to the property and valet greets you at the bag drop, you will instantly realize...this place is special. Enjoyed every moment, the food, the golf, and the people...hope to be back soon.
