Need a Marshall!

My buddies and I keep returning to Greatwood because the back 9 is, in our opinion, the best back 9 for a public course in the area. Unfortunately, it is hit and miss regarding pace of play. Wednesday Nov 25 we teed off at 12:15. Two groups ahead of us was a 5-some, followed by a 2-some. They were both extremely slow!!!! By the time we finished the 4th hole it was almost 2:00!! While driving to the 5th hole we looked over and noticed there was no one on the 7th tee box and no one on the green on # 6. So, we skipped holes 5 and 6 (and the 5-some!!!) and finished the front and back 9 by 4:15 pm. I am pretty sure the 5-some and everybody behind them failed to finish. They need a marshall.

The back nine is the best in area

The only thing that keeps us coming back to this course is the back nine. Simply the best back nine in the Greater Houston area. Other than that the pro shop is unfriendly and the pace of play is sometimes okay and sometimes horrible. No marshal.

Good course

No Marshall on the course. Played behind a foursome that played in 4:50.

Second time playing. First time played in just over 4 hours.

Great afternoon for golf

Everything was great EXCEPT they should not allow non-cart golfers during prime hours. It really slows the pace of play. Other than that, great day for golf.

Staff V’s. Course

Course has interesting holes. The last three times I’ve gone there, the individual (male) behind the counter couldn’t have been less interested in being there or being civil.

What could have been.

I imagine this course at one time was a wonderful place . However now what has happened to so many courses is the management/ownership has only one thing in mind profits over quality of the course. It makes me feel sorry for the maintenance staff who I’m sure work very hard with little support. The marshal we saw seemed like he was there for the free golf and not to help pace of play and to keep a eye on the singles jumping around the course. Please do yourself a favor and find a course that cares.

Awesome back 9.

Excellent condition. The back nine is some of Carlton Gipson’s best work. The par 5 18th is spectacular and challenging. Only negative: the last two times we played there in late October and early November they allowed one to a cart, due to COVID. Today pro shop said they stopped doing that in September. I said not so!!! We had own carts the two prior weeks. But She refused to allow it unless I paid an additional $20, which I did.

Don’t waist your money.

Customer service is terrible. You can spend less and get more at better courses in. Do not recommend.

Great layout

My friends and I are very familiar with courses designed by Carlton Gipson. Other than Old Orchard, which no longer exists, this is the best Gipson design we have played.
Great holes, great value.
