Speed greens

The greens will make you think about how you want to play your approach shots. If you land on the green the ball most of the time is going further than you think it will. The greens can be a bit deceiving with the breaks due to the speed so you need to pay close attention about where you you think the breaks are as you may just hit right through it. I hit a couple of 30 foot putts and I felt like I had barely hit the ball. It makes for great competition with your foursome and will make you think about it a little more before you putt. The short putts can also be difficult as I had a couple that I hit the lip of the cup and it rolled ten feet past the hole. Great greens!

Great Value, Great Course

$50 for a 9am Saturday tee time cannot be beat in Houston. Every fairway was in great shape. Greens rolled true. Only thing that would be better if they had tee times on weekdays after 5pm.

Great course Slowewww Play

Love this course, unfortunately no Marshall’s to keep the pace of play. Had a group in front of our 3some and no one on the tee box ahead of them they were just incredibly slow and would not let us play thru. Other than that beautiful course awesome layout and very challenging.

Exceeded my expectations

I was very surprised at how well taken care of this course was , greens , fairways and bunkers all in very good shape . There was a water jug with cold water every 2-3 holes along with a station to clean your golf balls , all at a good price , will definitely be coming back .

The Best Value in Houston

You are not going to beat Gus Wortham in terms of value. Super interesting course with big elevation changes which is something you don’t get in Houston! Course was amazing great greens and bunkering would definitely recommend anybody coming to Houston to play here

Charged me full price for a no show when starter told me 30%

Starter told me since one guy bailed on our team time when I. Booked 4 that I’d be charged a 30% fee for the greens for no show. I said fine it is what it is but later find out I’m being charged 100% and full amount. Unreal

Great condition

I shoot average 75-78. This course is amazing after remodel. Greens and fairways are in fantastic shape, I was blown away for a public course. I rank it up there with Tour 18 as far as public courses. It's better than wildcat I believe. My GPS was not giving accurate readings on some holes, the guys I was playing with said it was because of the remodel as they added some length. But idk. Overall excellent course. New proshop being built, bring your own alcohol as they do not sell at course.
