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!

Really enjoyed everything about this course. One of the most challenging courses I have played through the years, was in fantastic condition, and all personnel I came in contact with was extremely friendly and courteous! I will play here again.

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.

Overpriced. Greens were a mess. Bunkers inconsistent. Hard to find grass on the fairway

Give it a month

Always a good time at The Rawls, but the course needs a few more weeks of warm weather for all the grass to grow back. The greens were recently punched but like the rest of the course in a few weeks, they'll be rolling fast and true. If you aren't picky about course conditions go on ahead and play now, but if you prefer a course in top shape do yourself a favor and wait about a month.

Save your money

I appreciate the challenge of growing grass in Lubbock! However, a coarse managed by Troon and a Division one college should be in above average condition. This was not!
