Finally played the course

I finally played this course after dreading the fact that some golf buddies kept telling me how hard it is to get to play the course. After signing up with GolfNow and having the ability to book it whenever, I was very excited to have a tee time booked. The only negative is that I was charged twice (Once through GolfNow, then the guy at the course charged me again). Other than that the range, course, staff were all great.

Well worth the trip

Surprisingly nice course, a bit long with lots of trees and open areas. The course was in great shape given the summer heat and lack of rain. I would definetly recommend this course.

Great layout

This course will challenge any skill level. It is a must to keep it in the short grass or the fescue will gobble up your ball offering a real challenge of strength and skill. The greens roll true , slow in the early part of the day and speed up when the sun dries them up.

Ok, but nothing to get excited about.

Always fun to play one of the traditional old tracks, but it is getting so much play it is getting kind of beat up. Paid around $70. About right for the experience....

Could care less about there customers

Just golfed 18 holes in under 4 hours while being harassed by the Marshall to pick up the pace! The course play over 7000 yards so anything under 4 hours is quick . When asked about it after we finished they said you finished didn't you! I will never give the course another dime over priced at 50 dollars for a round and not even the top course in Houston !

Not your typical Muni

Waited fifteen yrs to play this course and the second my foot touched the first tee box rain started to fall--@#$%! Luckily, the rain stopped after 15 min., and the course handled the deluge well. The only puddles on the course were on the cart paths. Enjoyed the round with the help of Marshal's actually doing a good job keeping groups where they belonged.

Worst bunkers in town

Whoever sets up these bunkers doesn't know the first thing about bunkers. The Super needs to go to bunker school. They have way too much sand whic is just laziness. Play any decent course and see what a real bunker is supposed to be. They ruin the whole experience. The course would be great if the Super would visit the course and or knew what a bunker was supposed to play like.

Great Course, Friendly staff

We Enjoyed our round at Memorial Park GC very much. It had poured earlier, but was not sloppy at all. The staff here were very helpful and friendly. Food was above average and was waiting for us at the turn. Top notch facility, and would enjoy playing here every time we come to houston. Very affordable as well.... This place is a premium course, at a very fair price...A+ Thanks!

A real Houston treasure

After all these years -- and a 1995 renovation -- Memorial Park is still a great test. Once home to the Houston Open, it now stages the city amateurs. Best of all, it's located right in the center of town, surrounded by jogging trails, tennis courts and ball fields. Still less than $50 to play, it's also one of the few walkable courses in Houston. As for the layout itself, plenty of great holes, including the dogleg left ninth that plays over a hazard and the 613-yard par-5 16th.
