Needs Love and Staff

First off the course is poorly staffed on weekends. The guys there are great and nice but the stack tee times 4-5min apart and it kills the whole day. The course is tight and usually has the poorest skill level of golfers in town compared to Gus or Memorial so many stray balls. When they pack groups 4-5min apart it’s slow slow play and lots of danger. Also, the course is in the worst shape of all the munis. This course needs either better managers or more people/resources. It’s a very short course, if you usually play the blues or whites you’re still better off on the tips because how short it is. It would be a more fun course if it were in tremendously better condition and used 7-9 min group spacing because the skill level of the players is too low for anything less.

On the weekdays however it is a much more fun course because it can be VACANT. Memorial will always have a full course but if you want to play on mon-wed you can often play as a single!

Great value for the money

At $12 senior walking fee, you can’t beat this value for the money. Great layout, friendly staff. Depending on the season, the course can be in top condition.

Over priced concrete course

If you like golf avoid Herman Park the course is so bad it’s like playing of concrete . If you love your clubs spare them the damage this course will cause . Way over priced for the worst course in Houston I would rather play the course that closed a year ago

Amazingly Good

Fairways were like playing off plush carpet. Greens were quite slow only because of the recent rains and had not been cut
