Course has really improved
A while back I gave this course a really bad review. This time around, the conditions have greatly improved. The greens were just about perfect. Bunkers were wet because of rain overnight but still very playable. I was impressed at how much better shape the course is now.
A great deal
IDK what all the complaining about conditions, this course has been in great shape for years. I play it maybe once a month, as of July 2021 it was near perfect. A long but good walking course. The only knock I have is greenskeeper needs to spray the Dalis grass clumps or they will take over the Bermuda. Also no driving range.
Prince's burgers and beer for sale, good prices. One of the starters can be a little surly but it's nothing like the rude staff at Gus Wortham. Weekday senior is $15 to walk. Replay is free except $10 cart fee. You just can't beat this deal Sometimes there are tournaments so best call before walking up. On weekends it costs more and it can get pretty slow but that's golf.
Greens were recently punched but that is the least of the problems you'll encounter. The greens are currently trash on all but 2 or 3 greens. Most are growing some type of fungus that is eating up the grass.
The conditions were OK on the fairway but anything off the fairway was dried mud and dust. Had someone hit a ball the next hole over and had to wait 15 min to tee off at the ninth hole because people kept on driving on the fairway. If you can't hit them straight every time or if you like to play with people who know basic etiquette don't play here.
No golf etiquette
Just cuz you buy $2,000 worth of golf clubs and designer clothes wont help you' to have a better game.
Most players are nice, others don't care how bad they hold up gameplay. They refuse to let a single to play through that is faster or better skilled.
What you expect for the price
Cheap enough, however pace of play is poor, waiting at every hole. Condition of fairways and greens not the greatest and the driving range is poor.
Started at 2:40p. There were so many beginners out there. The pace of play was very slow. Lucky to finish 9 holes when it was getting dark enough to find ball.
Solid course. Would play again. Not the best municipal course in Houston but on par with Herrmann.
Where's the Marshall?
Pace of Play is normally ridiculous on the weekend, which is why I opted for a Tuesday afternoon tee time. Well, it felt like a Saturday. My tee time was at 2:30. I tee'd off at 2:35. I was on hole 9 at 5:30. Unacceptable!
