Steer Clear

The pictures show a decent looking course but that's just the wool over the golfers eyes. This course is in complete disrepair. Bought 18 and wanted to leave after 1. They cut the course with residential mowers. The fairways are consider good courses rough. Save your money.

This poor course is dying.

Could be a great course, if someone with some money would come in and save it. Holes 11 and 12 got washed out a couple years ago in the Memorial day floods. They were never fixed and never will be. They have had temporary holes out there for over 2 years. It's a shame because 11 was what I considered this courses signature hole, now so over grown it has disappeared. Conditions right now are awful. Greens are a joke. Recently air-raided greens at an average muni are better than these. Grass on a few of the fairways was so high, that it is possible to lose balls. Some of the tee boxes have weeds so high the your tee is not long enough to to prop the ball above them. The bridge on the first hole has crumbled to pieces, so you have to take a detour on holes 1 and 9. The other bridges are shady at best and I like to say a little prayer before driving over them. The carts are hit or miss. I returned one because it was rattling so bad and was very down on power. The replacement I got had no brakes. If you do get enticed to try it out because of the cheap hot deal, bring a lot of beers and think of it like a fancy driving range. On a high note, the people there are nice and because no really anyone plays here you can play a round in 2 hours.

Great Atmoshere

It might be more like Prarie Pool than PGA but we love this place. Great people, great deals on used clubs and great fun. More people need to go to keep this old relic going. I love the Texaco Golf and Country Club.

Needs attention.

The entire course needs work, especially the greens. I was confused at Holes 11 & 12 (course rerouted) & there was no signage explaining the changes. Fairways were weedy & bunkers should be filled in or mowed. (sand had knee high weeds). Cart bridges were shaky at best & one was totally washed out. I enjoyed how fast my time was there & even with the negatives I'd play there again, esp. if they lower the price to $10.

Save your time and money

I've played in countless public courses, but this ranks in the bottom of the list. Weeds on greens, high grease on tee boxes, unplayable bunkers. I could go on, but why bother. Don't waste your time and money.

I agree 100% this is a poor excuse for a golf course. The greens are 50% dirt the fairways are long and the 11th and 12th hole has been closed for repairs going on 2 years now. I'm surprised they are still in business!

Houston we have a problem

This is a very poorly maintained golf course. What greens? It's mostly dirt... There is nothing fair about the fairways... We lost balls in the fairways often, They have had the par 5, 11th and the 12th hole closed for repairs for almost 2 years and have made zero effort to fix them. The replacement hole don't have yard markers. This at best is a 18 hole driving range.

Never Again, Not even if free

The coarse is in horrible condition. We lost balls is the fairways. The bunkers need mowing because there is grass growing in them. The greens are hazards. Stay away.

Try it once

Not the best course and the greens are pretty pour but the staff is so nice and it's really just a pace to play for a quick round. Bring bug spray and extra balls. I lost a few in the fairway haha but the owners are the nicest people and they are worth giving your money too for a few hours on their course.

Should be closed

I can't imagine this course is going to be open much longer. The greens are horrible and the course in general is in bad shape. The guy with the scorecards was hoarding them like they were some priceless artifact. I can't say enough bad things about my most recent trip to this course. I CAN say it wasn't worth the $10 to play it. If you just want to hit golf balls at something other than a driving range, fine. If you want to play golf at a golf course...go somewhere else and actually enjoy your round.

Quiet Cove

Quiet, hidden course where you can play at your own pace. Some of the tee boxes, greens, and fairways need maintenance but the staff are doing the best they can with their limited resources. The city doesn't have the funds to support this course so please visit their go fund me page and donate today. Just search Texaco golf course on the go fund me website and it should pop up.
