Wake Up Battleground!

I play here often due to proximity to my work. This could be a fantastic golf course if they would just pay what it costs to maintain a golf course. The greens are a complete mess with sprouts of weeds breaking through and dead spots on every hole. They are unplayable. The geeenside bunkers are never raked or replenished so more often than not I end up dropping out of the bunker. The rest of the course is hard as a rock and just ridiculous to control. At a time of year when almost all Houston golf courses are in great condition for dome reason Battleground has no clue. The owners are obviously trying to suck the cash out of the course and dump it. It’s a shame. It could be a fun track.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, however, we're truly sorry to hear your recent experience with us may not have met expectations. We appreciate your patience & understanding regarding some of the course conditions due to the amount of rain this year, but can assure you our new superintendent is working diligently towards improvements. Conditions should continue improving further with the warmer temperatures and sunshine ahead! Nonetheless your comments have been shared with our staff, and we hope we have the chance to bring you back for a much better experience soon. If you would like to address these concerns further, we encourage you to reach out to Heather Smith at hsmith@battlegroundgolfcourse.com.

Greens need improvement

Greens have improved a lot since last time I have played but still have a ways to go. Some of the tee boxes are very hard but in heat like this, that is expected. Overall for what I paid I think it’s a good deal.

Please let it rain

Course is like so many in Houston area, desperately in need of rain.
Greens, tee boxes and fairways suffering from lack of water and the heat. Fairways and some tee boxes chocked up with thick weeds but it's either that or hard dirt due to drought like conditions.
A few fairways and some greens very playable just not enough to want to go back until conditions improve with some rain and weed killer.

Positives: Pace of play was just over 3 hours for 18. Staff were nice and saw beverage cart multiple times during the round. Just need mother nature to pitch in some!

Enjoyable 18 Holes

Great value for money. Some of the greens were a bit rough round the edges but did not detract from a fun round of golf.

Would definitely play here again.

What once was now isn't

This course used to be a beautiful well mannered course. It was a highlight to play and after get a great lunch. Now this course reminds what would happen after an apocalypse. More weeds than grass, the greens should be called browns, no marshall and more cow pasture than golf course . There were very few people on the course but those who were there were a fivesome and a foursome of elderly walkers! We skipped 2 holes and just got tired of being on the course and left after bout 12 played holes. The mighty have fallen.

Poor Quality of the Greens

I have played this course once or twice a year for about 20 years, the last five years have just been poor quality. The course just isn't being kept up with enough for what it costs. The greens are bare and have terrible grass patches on them making some holes almost unplayable. I keep hoping Battleground will be a playable course again, but it continues to dissappoint.

Don’t Play Here

Don’t let pictures fool you this place is in horrible condition. The greens are unplayable and the tee box spacing makes the pace of play even worse.

Worse course for the money

Greens in the front 9 were mostly dirt and not maintained at all.
They over boom the tee times and the pace of play is extremely quick left little room to actually enjoy the game, felt pressured the whole time even when I was waiting on the group in front of me, still felt pressured,
The back mine greens are better but not worth bragging about.
The score card is not accurate as to the distance of the tees and boxes, snack cart had mainly beer, as well as snack bar which closes early at 3:30 when you can play till 6. You cannot take any personal coolers so if you plan to play during the summer get there early enough to buy water

Horrible Conditions and Snack Bat

The greens were the worse I've played on in a long time. The front 9 was unputtable.

We teed off at 1:30, made the turn at 3:30 and snack bar closed. No water, food, anything.

I've enjoyed playing their in the past but will not play there again.

Not worth the green fees.

Very disappointed. Hard pan fairways and front nine greens atrocious (chopped up, no grass in many spots). Temporary check in area. Clubhouse closed due to fires. Probably a disgruntled player set it afire. Quit after front nine.

Course is nice!!! BUT

The staff was very nice and friendly, course looks amazing…. And was amazing to play…. But….

One it was too busy. We have two teams of 4 In front of use that where playing very slow… took about 15 min each new hole just waiting to tee off… FIX maybe space out the tee times a little more…

2. At the time we went the greens where in horrible conditions… half of them looked like mini bunkers.

That is all other then that this place was AMAZING!! We will be back to play again when the greens are fixed or fully recovered.
