PGA quality without the price

Absolutely beautiful course and clubhouse with very friendly and helpful staff from the pro shop to the marshals. Playing as a single I'm used to being ignored or worse hassled on a course, however everyone including the groups in front of me were very friendly and helpful, freely giving advice and letting me play through without any problems. If you want to play a quality course below the standard $300 green fee definitely look up Golf Club of Houston

The course was in great shape. However, the cart we got was not charged properly and was not functional after 15 holes. We pushed it back to the clubhouse but on a 97 F day , it really was a downer!

Beautiful Course

Really enjoyed this course. Only complaints were that there was no beverage cart and the fairways were so soggy tee shots kept plugging. I feel like at $100+ per round, a beverage cart is a must. Other than that, I look forward to my next round here!

Miserable

4-some ahead of us was horrible - slow play & a hole behind all day. Not a single Marshall to move play along. - need to institute handicap & tee requirements to manage play. Long time before I return.

Monday morning round

Course was practically ours for a majority of the morning. Course in great shape. A few greens still recovering from the freeze but rolled well and they put cups in places where you didn’t have to roll it thru them.

Course is in great shape. Punched greens about a month ago

Greens are almost fully recovered from aeration. They’re short on staff but still managing to do a great job. Great course to play a twilight round for $60; however, depending on pace of play u might not finish. We only played 9 cause it was too slow. Still worth it.

Disappointed

We had a 1pm tee time and arrived at :1215 to get checked in and warm up in the range. They informed us that there were no carts . Come to fiind out they had a morning tourney and must have overbooked the course based on number of carts . This is poor planning and based on the club and the rates they charge this should NOT happen. Very disappointed...by the way we finally got out cart to play at 1:25. With a 1pm tee time . SMH.

Greens

Greens were recently air-rated, so the roll is very bouncy and inconsistent. Seems that no one cares to repair their pitch marks, so greens are also littered. All in all I was a bit disappointed in the course condition. When it’s in good shape, this is easily one of the best public courses in Houston; just not this week. Still had a great time with friends out there, and the staff were friendly as per usual. There were some great twilight views as well. I’ll always return to this course, but will give it a few weeks to recover.

Punched greens

I love this course because the greens are incredible. Well not today they were punched and sanded which was not noted on Golf Now north by anyone in the pro shop. What a disappointment.

Houston Summer Golf

Most everyone knows that this course plays host to a PGA tournament and is highly regarded by the professionals. Playing this course at the end of July after a period of a good bit of rain the last several months has done a number on Houston area wide golf courses. Also our cold weather in February damaged a lot of greens to many Houston area golf courses. The greens at the time of my round had been aerated and sanded; mostly the Greens were in average shape having been treated in this manner. The fairways were in good condition and grass was cut close and tight. Sand bunkers are numerous and tough. Sand quality was fine. At a price rate of $75 on a Thursday which included a six dollar fee for range balls which were not readily available at the time prior to my round, this is frustrating. . Golf carts were also scarce at the time of my round. To the courses credit there was apparently a rather large tournament going on at the time. Of course this is a great golf layout and it is very challenging and unforgiving if you cannot hit Fairway Off the Teebox. The cart rules were 90° with several holes being cartpath only.
