One of the Bestbin Houston!

For the money Bayforest is the best deal in Houston. The greens are in consistently good shape and rival the higher dollar courses like Moody Gardens and Golf Club of Houston. The pace of play is usually good even on weekends. The staff is pleasant especially the cart girl and concessions girl. I really hope they keep it up, this makes me think about getting a membership there!

Little soggy

The course was a little soggy from Monday’s rain. It played short but fun. Greens were deceptively fast and a lot bumpy. Fairways still dormant but no rough to speak of. I Only had time to play 9 holes but pace was good. Never had to wait on group in front of us.

Nice open course

Decent course. My only complaint is that the greens were inconsistent from one hole to the next but overall it was a good round. I’ll be back

Very easy course if your looking to walk 18 holes. This course always seems to be wet, but still plays well.

Needed my waders

I’ve played here many times. Because of our resent downpours the course was soaked. Lift clean & took relief from casual water on every hole. Cart path only obviously so was an extremely slow day. 5 hrs for a 4 some. The fairways & greens need to be mowed. Other then the wet conditions Bay Forest is well worth the 3 hrs of drive time I have to make. Would always recommend to play. I would wait until it dried out a little.

Bad vibe.

Would not let us order grilled food on hole 8 to pick up and take with us at the turn. Lots of cart path only holes standard.
My buddies described it perfectly. It a muni course and they want to keep it local. Would go elsewhere where the staff is more relaxed and you can enjoy the round and experience. This course has a vibe of play quick and get out.
