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

Course had lots of rain so although looked dry, was cart path only. Last month the fairways and greens were lush. Now they’re taking on fall changes. The greens were great though as were the bunkers. The only problem was slow play from two groups in front of us that we caught up to on hole # 14 and from there we moved at a snail’s pace. No marshall and no cart girl - not unusual for this course though. Overall one of the best values in the Houston - Conroe area.

So I get the weather is changing and the course received a bunch of rain but I was really surprised how the course conditions reflected a course that you'd expect to play maybe later in the fall/winter here in the area. Tee boxes were thin, fairways were really starting to thin out and greens were decent but they need to be punched or something to help with the growth. It's a good value is you find a cheaper tee time on golf now. It's a good layout and challenging course but maybe I caught it at a bad time.

Groups of 5 on the weekend

The course is not in bad shape and the narrow tee shots can be a challenge. My biggest gripe with this or any course is allowing groups of 5, especially on the weekend. No matter how fast you think your five-some plays it is slower than the two-some behind you.

Well worth the money and the drive

It combines the new with the old......the tight with the open......the easy with the difficult......and the more difficult with the "dadgommit, who put that tree there!". For the money, I think this is the best value for SW Texas. The T-boxes are in great shape, the fairways are firm, and for as much play as it gets - the greens are in great shape and roll true. It's a challenging course. Most of the water leaves you alone. If you play in the fairway, it tests your shot making.....if you play out of the pines, it can make for a very difficult day (but that's golf). Seriously tho, only a few holes allow for scramble to GIR so each shot need to be thought out. The staff is tremendously friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere of the pro shop and grille is not snobby and suffocating. The amenities are rather impressive with what all is available. If there is one negative........with the age of this course, how this course is set up, and it's natural tree line - this is not (in my opinion) a beginners course. However - this is a great place to escape the craziness of Houston.

Great course

LaTorretta is a great course, somewhat challenging with tight fairways. Some trees should be trimmed off some fairways. Greens in good shape. Overall value is excellent.

Dhigh

Our cart ran out of gas. Brought another one out to us in a timely manner. No biggie, not upset about it, things happen. But could have at least received and apology. Employee checking us in not overly friendly or very informative knowing this was our first time there. Lady at concession stand was very personable and kind. Great course, great fun, just need a like work on customer service.

Incredibly great conditions considering the drought

This is the best I have seen this course - ever! No mosquitoes and lush greens. Fairways also soft and green. Great job to the greenskeeper and staff.

Unable to play, but...

We were unable to play due to the weather. The Houston area was getting a lot of rain July 4th so at 11:30 I called the course to see if they planned to be open in the afternoon. John from the pro shop told me that based on the rain and forecast the course would probably close but I could call back in a couple hours to be sure.

Then, for the first time ever in the 45 years I have played golf, I received a call from the course at 1:30 to let me know they were indeed going to close for the rest of the day.

Just the consideration he showed in calling me tells me everything I need to know about this course and their management.

I’ve played the course before so I know it’s a great course, I’ve interacted with some of the staff so I knew how great they were, but to take the time to call a customer like that just goes above and beyond.

Thank you very much, I’ll see you this afternoon (have a 3pm tee time for today also).
