Use caution

This review is a use caution review: it’s a great layout, in fact one of the best in Houston. The course is generally in decent shape for the 3 employees that manage the up taking. As far as membership options, seriously one of the worst in Houston. It went from over 1000 when it was a country club with all kinds of fun off course events and activists. Since the new ownership took over, it’s now an 18 hole course with limited membership options and around 200 full members and 150 pdp members. All because the owners won’t honor the former members or accommodate anyone except their own business, fair enough moneys money, but then again it’s the entertainment industry. Working there is anarchy and wouldn’t recommend to anyone. I don’t even want to get started but to keep it put- Rob is amazing and will get the best out of his employees other than that, when Dave comes around for 1-2 hrs once or twice a week, he never says anything good to anyone: members, employees, guests, etc. he treats everyone like they are his peasants. He will break you down until you feel worthless and it’s a shame to have great qualified employees and tear their reputation and feelings down. He’ll throw you a decent starting pay with benifits and all but a few days in he’ll start his decline on pay and what you are offered instantly. Multiple times guests would wait at the counter to check in and he would pull the staff in an open door meeting in his office and yell and curse at employees in front of everyone over absolutely nothing except the fact that he doesn’t care about RP, just oakhurst. It’s a shame for RP residents that the Charleston course closed and no memberships for the great people there are offered especially after Harvey. The place would constantly get under 60 check ins a day on weekends which is probably 100-200 less than most courses in that area for a reason- NO MARKETING SKILLS. He will take all of his tough problems and blame them on Rob and the pro on duty. I would like to see success there, and like mentioned is a great track, but use caution, especially working there.

Course conditions

They are closing Charleston....not enough members to support 27holes....it,was mostly dirt vs any grass,...lots of weeds Augusta was still closed due to Harvey bridges still,out. Would not pay to play there ever again. Food after event was below average Think,it was frozen chicken cordon blue , but served with roasted potatoes (good) and pasta salad. Strange combination for sure.

Fun but sad

I enjoy playing here. I play and or practice here 2-3 times a week. You play this park like course that is surrounded by gutted out homes from the hurricane flood waters. The first tee not so bad but by the time you get to five it starts to hit you all these people are displaced. If it does not tug on your heart that you're playing a game on a beautiful day while there are people all around you rebuilding their lives your not human. May the lord bless everyone of them and give them strength to rebuild.

The course was in good shape! And the staff was very friendly. The only other thing I didn’t like was the 2 foursomes I had to play behind. Not marshal to speed up play. But, after that I will be back again to play very soon

Fun course, lots of water. Excellent greens!

Sad to see the neighborhood devastation Harvey reeked on the houses surrounding the course. But this is definitely a must play in North Houston!

Great bargain

Course was in great condition for Fall. Greens rolled well but some tee boxes were a little rough but overall good conditions. Weather could not have been better - will be back soon for another round.
