Course is pretty good - similar layout to nearby courses I have played.

Greens were sanded, can't figure out why given it's the height of snowbird season and there appeared to be in decent shape. Fairways were good for the most part.

Not a lot of amenities and we got stuck behind 2 foursomes that went out on our 9:08 tee time due to a ladies tournament (it's supposedly a regular event, so not sure why things weren't planned better), so was nearly 5 hour round with a twosome. Much chaos.

It looks like they recently ripped out the GPS (rack and wiring was still in the cart with no unit), and no yardage markers other than the blue 200, white 150 and red 100, which according to my Bushnell were 10+ yards off...

I can tell it used to be nice, but appears to have been slipping for quite some time.

Not a bad deal given the time of year, but have played other courses locally I would prefer next round I am in the area.

The west course has some spots on a number of greens that are just sand. The grounds people are doing a good job of keeping the pins away from them

Other than that the course is a true test of golf.

thinking golfer layout you cant just hit driver off the tee. the greens are a little slow but this is due to over seeding once the seed is mature probably abut a month or so the greens will be awesome. once again very good layout and a challenge for every level of golfer.

I have played this course before, many times, and like it but this time, greens were not in great shape, very sandy, and rough was so deep many balls lost and a lot of time lost looking for balls when we knew exactly where they were . I realize that is due to excessive rain we have had and it can be corrected, so when greens are back to par and rough is cut down, this is a very nice interesting course to play, it just wasnt this time.

If you play here go to the range and pick up a dozen balls to play with. Don't waste the balls you purchased here. Anything that rolls off the green or fairway is unfindable in the 8 inch rough. Greens patchy. Sand is hard and has not been raked since before the hurricane most likely.

I have played the Woodlands West before, and enjoyed it now I am very disappointed. The tee boxes were awful, many of the greens were patchy and need work, the rough is so long that many times we could not find our ball let alone hit it...This course needs work and is not worth what they charge.

Having played here many times we have never experienced a 5+ hours. This was the first time I ever called the pro shop to report slow play, they never sent a ranger to help correct this. The pros in front of us had the whole course backed up.. The staff was young and could use help with course management.

This course was in very poor condition. Starting with the clubhouse. They could at least sweep the old leaves off the front steps. Terrible practice facility, crumbling cart paths and fairways covered in weeds. Greens were in good shape. Lousy experience.

The course layout here is very nice but the pace of play was absolutely horrid. I was a solo that paired up with 3 other gentleman who had excellent pace, but on hole 2 there was a foursome in play with 8 on the tee box waiting, and we were behind them. We also had two 4somes behind us. There should never be 6 groups of 4 on one hole. Other than the pace, the course was in good condition. Probably would not play again unless the tee times are more spaced apart.
