Incredible greens!

Tee'd off at noon and the weather was perfect and the course was even better! Kinda crowded as we had to wait on the group ahead of us and felt like we were being pushed by the group behind us. The marshals were very friendly. The greens were incredible! Not a bald spot all day. I will play here again.

Thanx HGA

HGA has done a fabulous job bringing back Gus! Greens were super fast and true. Fairways are fast and tightly mowed which makes the track playable from the back tees. Sand traps are playable which says a lot for a public course.

Hoping that they get the rest of this project completed soon because the parking lot needs work and no clubhouse to eat a good burger would really complete a good round.

HGA you need to consider another project! It’s obvious you what your doing. Maybe Brock??

HISTORY

Playing a golf course where Harry Vardon (6 time British Open Champion) and Ted Ray played a 107 years ago is a walk or should I say a ride into history.

Thanks HGA for bringing this gem back to life.

Great course

Great course. Top 5 in Houston. Only lacks clubhouse and a paved parking lot. Also could use a drink cart since there are no water jugs available

Marshall v Cart Path Enforcer

The course was in excellent condition. The problem we experienced was there was no Marshall on the course. There was a 4some 2 groups ahead that had 2 holes open in front of them and a single behind them that they didn't let through. By the time we reached the par 3 fifth there were now 3 groups on the hole and it remained that way the entire round. In addition, on holes 12 and 13 which are short par 4's they have moved the cart directional signs 100 yards from the greens All decent drives on these holes put you less then 50 yards in. There was a greens keeper with a bad attitude getting on every that passed these signs even if we were in the rough. I understand that cart path rules need to be followed (even if they require you to walk 50 to 80 yard each way) but they need someone that knows how to talk to there guests.

Beautiful Course

Love this course. The course is an old school reworked gem. Obviously the clubhouse is still coming but the greens are great. Course could use a little water. Hopefully we get some rain soon.

This is probably one of the best public courses in Houston. The fairways are narrow, the greens were really fast., and moguls everywhere!!
The pace of play was 4 hours exactly for our foursome. I’d definitely recommend this course. I’ll be back!!

Gus is Great!

Played Gus on a Thursday PM hot deal and the course did not disappoint. It was in excellent shape and the greens were firm and fast. Saw maintenance work being performed on the course & you could see the results of the staff's work Keep it up guys! Only draw back was no drink cart running,, bummer. So take you something to drink with you to be safe.
