Not impressed at all
There’s a lot more courses out there that are better for a lot less money. Way over priced
We appreciate you taking the time to review the course and rate us. We are going to pass on your feedback to the teams in charge so they can work to make changes.
Your feedback helps us do better. We are looking into this issue and hope to resolve it promptly.
Thank you for visiting Tempest Golf Club. We hope you'll give us another try in the future.
I do not have any ill will towards any level of golfer but having to wait in 100 degree weather for two guys to take 6 minutes every hole to go 150 yards was unbearable. I am sure like everywhere else that don’t have the staff, but if you charge like you do then provide it.
We apologize for the pace of play issue you experienced. We always try to keep a great pace when having our golfers on the course. Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback as we will use your review to better the experience going forward. We hope you give us another try in the near future!
First time at tempest
Best layout and course conditions I’ve experienced in east tx. Very hot but on course water coolers were present, beverage cart came by several times during play and complimentary ice/cooler on cart. Carts include gps but it rarely worked on either cart in our foursome. That’s about the only complaint and I’ve seen other reviews referencing gps issues. We drove 1 1/2 hours to play course and it was worth the drive and I plan to play again soon. Large greens and undulating fairways make it a challenging course.
Pace, Pace, Pace
Much like everyone else says, course is ok, better than many. However, pace of play is a huge problem here. Only problem worse than pace of play is that management really could care less. Once they have been given your money, you are on your own. When we talked with the head person, he chuckled and told us to go somewhere else, we would find no better than his place.
So, course is fine, just pack a lunch, a snack, and possibly even dinner

Just when the greens were getting good!
This courses greens could be the best around; however, everytime they start to get really good, they either punch, sand, verticut, etc. I don't know why this is the only course in ET where this is necessary.
Slow play continues to be a problem; however, one of their Marshalls is starting to do some things about it.
Need to play
Nice course, just a long way to travel and a little high priced for the location.
Great course, great condition.
Left my range finder in the cart, when I called to tell the pro shop I was told that It was never found.
My fault for leaving it, but I wish whoever found would have done the right thing.
Guess I will be more careful next time. I was just expecting more from their cartbarn staff.
Best course in East Texas
Great course; but, they punch, verticut, sand the greens way too often. Tee markers are not placed correctly; whites can sometimes be farther away than blues. Carts are in bad shape, and GPS system rarely functions correctly. They are way too tolerant of slow play.
Great course! No marshal advising players on pace of play, a threesome had the whole course backed up.
Fun course but slooooow
Saturday 10:54 tee time. Took north of 2:30 to complete front 9. I get that public golf courses don't move quick, but for an $80 green fee I expected better. They definitely overbooked. Arrived at the 6th to find 4 groups on the hole. Couple that with charge for range balls, cart screen not working, no coolers or club washers etc... Cool, course but not worth the price IMO.

Hills, valleys and views
It’s been over two years of progress getting this course where it is now. Smooth fairways help make those thinking shots a little easier. You bite off just about as much or as little as you want out there now. Go get em!
Top East TX Course
This course gives you everything you ever want in a quality place. Clubhouse, practice facility & friendly people who work there. Nothing needs to be said about the course, it’s no less than a gem. Must be played more than once to really get a feel for all the hills you’ll encounter. Big greens that require precise putting. Go play!!
Great East Texas course
Tempest is a great course and definitely worth a place to play in East Texas
Lovely lay out, needs more grass
I again enjoyed a relaxed round at this course...new to me but it has great potential. Many good shots on fairway or green could be on dirt, sand, or just minimal grass. The winter took its toll...but the recent rains helped I am sure. Much better shape.
