Great older course

I would play there very often if I lived closer. Greens in great shape for Houston area public course. Very true rolls. Soft soil and clean fairways without crabgrass and weeds. Only wish a chance for the turn to offer drinks.

Very handy public course

I’ve been playing this course for many years, and it’s in it’s best shape ever. The pace of play is usually pretty good, but we got behind four forsomes today that practically shut the course down. Not sure why this was allowed to happen, but it caused us to skip three holes to save our sanity. Up until this point all was great.

Apologies the course wasn't up to par for you. La Quinta can be a great value. Please feel free to discuss your concerns with staff or management next time you play. Thank you.

It;s a classic layout but it can get tricky even for some scratch golfers. You must have been playing well, which is nice. Hope to have you back again.

Great day for golf. Course in as good of condition as I’ve ever seen it over the past 2 years I’ve been playing. Pace was very good at mid morning time. Can’t wait to get back and play again.

Nice layout with a good mix of easier and challenging holes

La Quinta is a pretty long course with some wide open fairways and some where you need to hit the right line. Some carefully planted trees can make for tough the shots to the green. A lot of elevated greens call for precise flop shots or bumps into the slopes.
Unfortunately the green were recently punched and patches up here and there so it was hard to get confident on the greens.
The only annoying thing of the course are the many smal humps and bumps in the fairways that make for an unpleasant drivie inthe cart. Some leveling would be appreciated!

Course is in very good condition aside from 2-3 greens that are under repair. Pace was good once I went around an extremely slow 3some. Had to miss a par 4 to do it. Not sure why Marshall wasn’t moving that group as they were really holding up play for a few groups.

Apologies that other golfers slowed you down and the Spring time green-head bugs can be annoying. They usually last only a few days. Hope you make it back. We'll do everything we can to help you have a good time here.
