3 1/2 hour round on a Sunday

Booked a single on the Golf Now app and was grouped up with 3 others. Course was in decent shape, greens where great and fairways were good for the most part. Layout was nice but felt long playing into a 20 mph wind. Staff was really friendly and a burger afterwards was included in the green fees. Besides being a good drive from Rosenberg I would play this course again.

Fun course to play

I played as a single by myself on a slower day. I was able to play on under 4 hours while not being rushed one bit.

Course was challenging & I played from the white tees. Some of the holes with water are particularly challenging. Hitting out of .most of the rough was not overly difficult.

Pro shop staff person was super nice & helpful.

I would definitely like to play here again.

Always Disappointing

Played on a Saturday because only place available. 75.00 bucks is laughable even for Wknd rate. Staff unfriendly, course conditions poor, cart was loud and slow. It’s the closest course to my home but will never play it again. Total waste of time!

Great Course

Always enjoy playing this challenging course. Staff are always friendly and course is well kept however two of the greens still trying to come back from the freeze but still not in bad shape and definitely playable.. With your round free lunch and range balls are included which makes the price well worth it. For a Sat course was well managed with limited waiting.

About that free meal and a beverage

If you play twilight rates like I do, Golf Now will still include free meal and a beverage. The pro shop will advise you that such an offer does not apply to you. I really didn’t have time to stop and eat anyway (I would run out of daylight). Otherwise course conditions were great. Fairways fast, greens rolled true. The 17th and 18th remain two of my favorite holes in greater Houston. Navigating the creek that runs through those holes is a big challenge.

First time and last time

Pro shop helpfulness was non existent. Pace of play was horrible, I ended up cutting my round short at hole 11 because the two threesome's ahead of me took 10-15 minutes per shot.
The course is technical and nice, but won't play there again

Not worth the price

Course has been in much better condition before, and still a course I enjoy, but it is just not worth what they are charging for it right now. I’ve played courses recently in double the condition for 10 to 15 dollars less. There are pretty big rock solid burnt sand patches in every fairway. Greens are decent but some with clear bad patches. Just not worth the price right now.

Quality course for late July. Yikes on the carts

Course is in good enough shape for late July in Houston. Some burns on greens but overall well maintained. The carts are completely different story. They are all in dire need of service and the tires spin and screech every time you start. No reason not to play, just don’t think your specific cart is broken.

Fun course

Course was in good condition and had a lot of challenging features. Cart path only due to all the rain which slowed play a little. Overall it was a good course and I would play again.
