Paths

Cart paths are in dire need of attention. Course was cart paths only on the day I played. I understand the need to require that as the course was very wet. Staying on the paths was pretty unpleasant due to the incredibly bumpy ride.

Course layout and staff

3 par fives all in 9 holes are unique!!! Very rare and I like that. I am usually a walk-on and they have accommodated me the best they could and my hat is off to them. I play when I can for my wife is battling cancer which doesn’t allow me to book in advance.

Best course conditions played all year!!

A lot of courses struggled with the freeze, greens and rain, not this place. Greens in great shape, fairways is good shape. Best course for your money in the area IMO.

Hidden Gem

Been golfing in area for 3 years now and never played Bay Forrest look what I’ve been missing!
Superb course layout with a great mix of par 3 ,4 and some reachable 5 s even for me !
Fairways greens and overall course in top condition water in play for I would say 80% of the time but not overly difficult if you think about where your safe area is
Greens ran fast and true but took some reading make sure you look from all around !
My only problem is normally I’m a single player and they don’t publish online for singles I don’t mind being paired up or added to a group in fact that’s what Golf is about

Will be back as soon as possible loved it

Super value

Played on a Wednesday afternoon. Was not busy and pace of play was perfect. The overall condition of course was outstanding. The location is not convenient for me but it’s worth the drive. One of Houston’s best values! Staff could be friendlier but that’s my only negative.

Clubhouse attitude sucks for Golf Now users.

For some reason the clubhouse staff resents that you booked through golf now. They literally make you feel like crap. Like somehow you have taken money from their pocket . I talked to one guy about he apologized for the grumpy old man. Good luck if you make it to the course it’s awesome.
