Good course to play...

Just stay out of the trees, the course is flat, greens are very good, water comes into play only on a couple holes, no fairway bunkers on green side. Hitt'em straight!!

Decent

Very basic layout. No real trouble. Holes 1, 9, 10 & 18 are hitting into each other. Very tight.

Nice course, but...

I have played this course often and usually enjoy it. Two things bug me about this course: No marshals to drive around and monitor pace of play. We were a foursome and continually waiting behind a very slow threesome that could care less that we were constantly watching them tee off and they had at least one vacant hole ahead of them.
Second, the course drains poorly and needs some work to improve drainage. While other courses are off the cart path, they are still on. The greens are some of best in town. Too bad the fairways don't get some attention so can play off cart paths sooner.

Little wet but still fun.

For $25 on a Tuesday afternoon, you can’t beat it. The pace of play is an ongoing issue. If the Marshall could keep people playing on a good pace, a round wouldn’t take four and a half hours.

Wide open

Long and wide fairways. Fast greens. No cart girls, no grill. Awkward bag drop. Excellent prices.

Good Value for the Money

Played the course for the first time as a single. Joined a group that were excellent playing partners. Course was wet, cart path only. Very walkable. Recommended for value and fun.

Slow Day on the Course

This course is one of the old Houston Municipal courses that any golfer living in the Houston Metro should play once. The low price before twilight makes the lack of a snack bar or on course cart exceptable. Playing from the tips is ok even for the average golfer and the rough is pretty sparse so even a hacker like me could play a round with only one ball. The water is never in play which makes for a very easy day and you do have many club selection issues unless you get into trouble off the tee. The pace of play is representative of the very low rate. A four and a half hour round is not uncommon and don’t look for a marshal to keep things moving they are usually in the club house out of the heat (can’t blame them) Play this course because it old cheap and muni landmark.

Model Muni

I used to play Sharpstown all the time. They have come a looong way. Remodeled greens a few years ago, and they are holding up nicely.

Pace of play was good. Sometimes it can be pretty bad.

All in all a nice track with nice people running the festivities. And mostly laid back players. (Some clowns occasionally, but not today)
