Best Value Course

I love playing Gus Wortham. I did not get a chance to play it before the renovations, however I have heard the war stories. Gus is in impeccable shape and the layout could not be more fun. Yes, it is a little shorter, but the undulating greens and copious amounts of bunkers make for a challenging course. The greens are the most impressive public course greens I have ever played. There are false fronts hidden from you. I can't wait to see this course mature over time. HGA does a great job of taking care of the course, please do your part as well! Sand divots and repair ball marks, players.

City Course.

Golf course is in excellent shape, brand new course, more sand traps make it tougher.

Pleasantly surprised

What a great track just tucked away between the city streets. The course was lush and manicured nicely. Nice practice range and putting green. Biggest thing I can say is make sure you play to every pin due to the vastness of the greens. You could easily 3 putt if you’re on the wrong side. Speaking of greens, they rolled fantastic! Quick and true and hold nicely when playing approach shots. Rough isn’t too bad and the fairways were great. If I had to find any negatives it would have to be the driveway into the parking lot but then I’d be nitpicking. If I lived closer I’d be here everyday!

Great Course

It's not a long course in terms of the distance. But it's challenging. Some of the par 4's are very long. The greens are very fast for normal players and are very undulating.

Overall a terrific course and must play. The course was in great shape.

Great course

Probably one of the hidden gems in Houston green are amazing course is in perfect shape. Pace of play is 4 hours or less most days . Only play 6400 yard from the tips but will challenge even a great golfer

Fun course, great condition

Four of us made the trip to Gus Wortham for the first time yesterday. We came away impressed by the beauty of the course as well as the condition of the fairways and greens. It’s a fairly short course at 6400 yards from the back tees, but there are several holes which require long approaches into the green. This course is as good if not better than many of the “ high end” daily fee courses such as Blackhorse and Cypresswood. The facilities are minimal and no beverage cart on the course, so consider taking something to drink out there with you. Our foursome played in 3.5 hours and the course was pretty much empty. It’s kind of off the beaten track, but definitely worth the drive. We are planning a return trip out there within the next couple of months.

Excellent course

Excellent course , greens are in fantastic shape ,The same can be said about the rest of the course. Very reasonably priced for the quality of the facilities , pace of play is a little slow simply because the course is so popular and a lot of people walk it but that is to be expected with a course like this one. Will definitely be back

Best in the area

This course was redone and is excellent. Great bunkers, soft fairways and very good greens. Course isn't flat so it has some challenges. Club selection come into play on most holes.

The good bad and ugly

Price is good. Layout and grass is very good.
But get off the mown area and there is trash and cut branches piled everywhere, entry road will bust your wheels with potholes, no food no beer.
It's like a genius built the actual course then left the rest of it to idiots.

Keeps getting better

This is the 3rd time I've played here since they re-opened and each time it gets more mature and lush, It may be the best conditioned course in Houston. Has always been a great layout. Good job HGA. Would be nice if those playing would learn to use a divot repair tool.

Hidden gem

This is a beautiful course that’s been redone. It’s a classic old school walkers course. I personally think it’s great. They are still in temporary clubhouse so no great amenities. But if your looking for a hisdwn gemstone near the city this will not disappoints.

Great Course Inside the Loop

With all the public courses closing down in Houston, it's nice to have Gus back again! The remodel has been a huge success so far. The fairways are nearly perfect, the greens roll true, and even the bunkers are inviting. The location and value can't be beat for someone looking to play near downtown.
