Pleasant Surprise

First time player, very happy overall. Fairways were pretty bare but got pro rolls when putting it down the middle. Really enjoyed the layout, plenty water danger and rolling jagged hills on the sides of the fairway with no telling how your ball will react. Greens rolled true and fast, not perfect but they were the best greens I’ve played in the 8-10 course ice played this year. Great outdoor bar, gasoline carts and friendly people. Highly recommend!

The course was a little bare in places, but it was still nice. They could do a little more with course layout maps, got myself in a little bind a couple times.

Green Review

Several Greens had a few rough spots on them; however most were good to excellent! Faster than most other courses greens that I have played in the greater Houston area! I love fast greens since I believe they are the most fair...and I consistently play 8-10 courses in the greater Houston area.

Honored to show off this course

I was joined by Ben, recently moved to Katy from Wisconsin. I was playing solo at my usual brisk pace of ready golf when Ben came roaring up behind me, hitting humongous shots on #2, catching up on 3. I went to wave him thru not wanting to slow him down when Ben mentioned this was his first time at Houston National. This course can have some surprises so I was only to happy to guide him., Ben hits from the tips, played in college so I was glad to join up.,The greens are much improved after the deep freeze last month.! We both liked the value, $35! Hot Deal in Golf Now.. the plumbing was fixed in the grill. Beverage cart was well stocked and helpful. I bragged on the upcoming two finishing holes and they didn’t disappoint. As a weatherman, couldn’t ask for a nicer day. We finished in just over an hour. My favorite course.

Course is over priced for the lack of maintenance done. The members course is well taken care of. But as for the public course it’s trash and has gone down hill.

Poor Course Conditions

I was shocked. I couldn't believe the condition of the course. I mean there is simply no excuse, this is not from recent weather but a lack of upkeep. Not worth the money or the drive.

After the freeze

The course is on its way back to pre freeze conditions, but the facilities, other than the clubhouse and members locker rooms were horrible, very dirty....mud and leaves, it seems that the maintenance staff could have been cleaning up after last night’s rain instead of sleeping in a cart. The bathroom in the bar area was filthy, and the carts are always dirty. I picked up trash on the course as i played, but more could be done to make this place fabulous.

So much potential

There is so much potential with this course. I understand the conditions were not the best and Houston has recently seen some extreme weather, but if you have friendly, helpful staff then you can still really enjoy your round.

If you get a cheap rate, give it a go. Otherwise, play elsewhere.

Great course layout; poor condition

This is a really nice golf course layout and was really fun to play, but the course is beat. Fairways were hard pan and have dry/ dirt patches everywhere, not maintained or watered and the greens are patchy, fuzzy and clumpy. It’s such a shame because the layout is really nice. It was a good value for. a Saturday but I won’t be back again - there are better options at similar value. Let me know when you turn on the sprinkler system and maybe I’ll give it another try.
