Editor's Note: Course closed for business in 2017 after Hurricane Harvey. One of the earliest courses in the Kingwood area, this shot-maker's course rolls through a dense forest along the north bank of the San Jacinto River and has long been one of the best golf values around Houston. At Kingwood you have the chance to start off strong, with 8 of the first 9 holes being wide open, straight, and having minimal hazards. The most difficult hole on the front is the impressive, doglegging 360-yard No. 8, which curls around the lake and plays into a severely sloping, two-tiered green. The more difficult back nine, which is longer and more narrow, starts off with a 527-yard par 5 that doglegs left at 225 yards off the tee. Play a cautious shot into the dogleg, as water is on the right side of the fairway and will catch booming drives. The late 1990s ushereed in renovations that have improved the course significantly, including tee box improvements and a new irrigation system.

Good price, mediocre conditions

The fairways and greens were not in good condition, though there has been some rain recently. Overall an average experience, if you can get in for $15 like I did it's not a bad deal. Wouldn't pay the full price.

Played it after it rained.

It was very wet can't tell much about tboxes and fareways. Greens were super slow. I'll have to come back to this one when it's dry.

This course has great features but.......

Due to recent weather, course was cart path only. On the 10th hole we were hit with down pour. The fairways were saturated after that. Stopped playing at the 12th hole. I will play this course again, weather permitting. Don't forget your bug spray.

Decent 'value' course for North Houston residents

First off, dont make the drive here from Houston as there are much better options that are also affordable. However, if you are in the area give it a shot. In my few times there, I have found pace of play to be slow, lots of hackers, too many people booked at one time, slow/poor customer service. The course is in ok condition, it plays long and has a few challenging holes but nothing spectacular. Some of Houston's muni courses are just as good if not better.

Good For Beginners

Course was actually easy for beginners to learn on. Nice greens. Fairways pretty straight with a few challenges. Need to better mark OB. Parking area and cart return fare could be a little friendlier. Overall for the money the course was good for the money spent to play.

Poor conditions, slow

Course was in pretty bad shape. Slow pace of play. Short holes- poorly laid out. House lined- very little space/tree buffer. Felt like I was playing in peoples backyard all day. Parking lot was next to driving range- I was worried about my windshield the whole time. I have never stopped a round early but I stopped after 9 because I couldn't take it.

Long par 5s

I liked the layout and the course played nicely. It was busy and a little slow. Interesting that the par 5 were out of reach in regulation for me and the par 3 were really long compared to my normal courses.

Slow

Cart path only was in affect as course was very soggy. Course was very backed up and extremely slow. Left after 9 holes. Maybe offer tee times more spread out if the cart path only rule is in affect?
