Best Course in Texas

What an amazing course! Holes #11-13 may be the best consecutive holes anywhere. I’ve played Pebble, Kapalua, Torrey and many other nice courses and Walden on Lake Conroe is tight up there. Best course I’ve played in Texas (including Carlton Woods, Barton Creek Courses, Royal Oaks, etc.). I won’t forget my round there ever.

Only 4 stars for off-course amenities because of underwhelming clubhouse. Only 4 stars for staff friendliness because was told when making tee time that my daughter would be free since she plays on her high school team but then told when checking in that we had to pay for her because she didn’t play for their local high school golf team. Whatever.

Perhaps Robert von Hagge's best design

Although there are homes around the holes, which I've never been a fan of, Walden on Lake Conroe still ranks among the best courses I've ever played -- and I've played well over 1,000 courses. The reason is simple: Nearly every hole is strong and memorable, and it might have one of the top two or three par 5s I've ever played. The hole is the 11th, which plays 600 yards from the tips, out of shoot, into the wind and eventually onto a peninsula green on Lake Conroe. Pars feel like birdies; birdies like eagles. Reaching it two is pretty impossible. Nos. 8 and 18 also great holes.

Couldn’t agree more, Mike. Just played it for the first time on Friday (they now offer public tee times) and it was one of the nicest courses I’ve ever played, anywhere in the world. Holes #11-13 may be the best 3 consecutive holes anywhere.
