Amazing Golf Course of West Texas

The Rawls golf course is a type of links course and it is the home course of Texas Tech University. I really enjoyed my time in this course with their driving range and short game facility. I would recommend for anyone who wants to have great time in West Texas.
Enjoy your time!

On the rebound

After having considerable trouble with their greens last year, they have made a nice comeback. Tees and fairways were in very good condition. Very friendly staff in club house and pro shop.

The course was in great shape considering the freeze we had this winter, the greens were quick and true as normal. It is always a treat to play this course.
