The course was wet do to resent rains. But it was fair the greens were fair and fast. But with wet front it was hard to get close. It will be fun to play this spring or summer to see what you can score with a good bounce or so. With fast greens you need to have front bouce. Over all a good course. Can't wait to have another chance to do better.

Soggy round on beautiful morning

The staff friendly as always. Course layout plays long but good mix of right and left doglegs. Greens need some love. Ball marks everywhere. I fix at minimum 6-10 on every green. Course is well maintained, unless you hit in the trees, then 50/50 you will find your ball along with... let me see 18 holes I found 16 balls. Fairways are tight tight lie. The course was extremely wet but they let us 90 degree as long as we payed attention to the soggy areas. Don’t ask about cart paths. Let just say my back needs shocks on its cart. All in all fun Sunday am round with two other singles.

Perfect day

Sunny and 65 degrees. Fairways cut to almost bare. Greens are bumpy. Dormant grass makes for tight lyes. Makes it a little hard to get under the ball but normal for this time of year in Houston Tx. With such a beautiful day course is perfect.

Enjoyable round at La Torretta

Early hot deal tee time so pace was my own speed. Course Is in good shape but a lot of leaves on the ground. I am sure the grounds crew will get them taken of after thanksgiving break. Greens are good with a couple of patches of foreign grass on them but it does not affect your putts. Make sure and say hi to Ralph in pro shop.

First Time Playing

Played from the whites and had an enjoyable round. The par 3s were all around the same distance but the rest if the holes had good variety in distance. Course itself was gorgeous and the greens were perfect..a little fast. First tee time out and didn't have anyone behind us until the back 9. Will definitely be back.

Wasted away again in Margaritavill

I play this course frequently. The staff is always helpful and friendly. Course layout is long for those of us who can’t drive the ball longer then 250 yards. It has a few bunker drainage issues and some bare spots in the fairway on a few holes. Compared to the other public tracks in the area this one would be in top 5. First 9 is tight tree lined layout while the back 9 is a bit more open. The range is a good warm up range but not one to work on your tee shots on. The new owner is in the process of renovating the resort. Hopefully cart path and bunker drains are on the list for improvement on the course. It is a great test and a fun test. Just wish public would fix their divots and ball marks.

Out of 10

From 1 to 10-bad to good.. 1 has no business here 5 has to work hard to get around 90. 10 will be near par with a little challenge. Lots of trees need to be avoided or bring your own chainsaw.. A good course for fun and disappointment.

Great course

I love this course and the whole layout, I played from the blue and it was a great course every hole was fun and challenging it would of been way to easy for me to play from the whites. The staff here are very friendly and so are the other golfers I moved out here from California and so far this is course is on my top 10 and I’ve played at thousands of courses will definitely be back was well worth the 1 hour drive

Perfect weather
Used cart

quick weekend round

Got an early Golf Now hot deal and was able to beat the crowd and the weather. Course was in really good shape and the greens were rolling about a 10. Really enjoyable round. One small comment . If the small amount of foreign grass around the collars were pulled or spot poisoned then this would have been perfect conditions. Still this did not interrupt the playing conditions though. I hope they let the course superintendent keep up the good work! thanks

La Toretta

Good layout; good course but overall the course is slipping. Conditions are deteriorating as it did in the past when it was Del Lago. It's a shame because this is a fine golf course and the views of the Lake are special. I hope the course is taken over by someone who will restore to its former glory.

Great Course for the price point

Fairways were excellent! Greens need work but playable. Stock up on water before heading out !! Was HOT and only two water pit stops on the course.

Best Value in Houston Area

La Torretta is far and away the BEST course you will find in its price bracket. Played here for the first time today. Conditions of an $80 course in the $45-50 range (though I’ve played $80 courses that weren’t as nice). Great water features, beautiful landscaping, greens roll fast but true and just soft enough to hold approaches, long and narrow but fast running fairways, perfectly placed and well maintained bunkers, challenging yet makable forced carries, great pace of play, not overcrowded, clubhouse bathroom/locker rooms fit for a King (and/or Queen I assume, but I didn’t visit that one), friendly staff, great service...I could go on and on. I had an incredible experience at La Torretta today. Unfortunately I live an hour away, but if I lived just a half hour closer, this would undoubtedly be my home course.

Good not great

This was the 2nd time I played this course and overall I enjoyed my round. The greens we in good shape despite and not mushy despite the huge amount of recent rain. The fairways were fine and tee boxes and bunkers looked good. The only part of the course that looked liked it needed some attention was the rough. It looked as if it hasn't been cut in weeks....makes sense because of the rain.

The layout is ok but this course doesn't have any holes that stick out as memorable.

It's a long drive from houston so probably wont be going back anytime soon

La Torretta Golf

Course was wet in the fairway which made it play even longer. Would like to play this course again when it is dryer! Very good course layout just no role today! For the price it is a worthwhile play!

Great course

After taking care of their greens, this course has been really the top choice for me given its value - very reasonable price but very challenging setup especially for the 1st 9 holes!
