Greens need work, rough is deep.

Great staff in the clubhouse. Easy check-in and brief chat. As a twosome we tee'd off at 7:30am and the course fairways are in pretty good shape. The first and only cut of rough was deep enough to bury you ball completely which made it sometimes challenging to find an errant shot. When we got to the first green I was disappointed to see that there was an invasive type of weed/grass growing within the putting green surface.
This made the greens basically unplayable as the ball wood bounce along the way to the hole and adjustment for slope on speed was inconsistent. We never saw the beverage cart the entire round even though we were told at the turn that someone would be on the course. On the back nine we came upon a 6-some on number 11. I guess they started on number 10 since we were the first group of the day. Thankfully they were courteous enough to let us play through. I drove up from Houston approximately 58 miles one way. If iI had known the condition of the greens I would not have booked a tee time. Some of the lakes have massive algae growth and smelt pretty bad.. We probably won't go back until the greens are weeded out. I have played here before when the greens were in great shape and would recommend but was disappointed this time. My partner made the comment that "the course has a lot of potential if only someone would manicure and maintain it properly.

Very disappointing

I have played this course many times over the years.

This time, it was not worth the 80-mile trip.
> the tee boxes and fairways need irrigation.
> the greens are being taken over by crabgrass. Even if greens are shaved, putts bounce every which way.
> we played the front nine in about two hours, but then were forced to wait on almost every shot during a three-hour back nine.
> the jugs of water that were sparsely provided ran dry on a very hot Houston day. There was NO beverage cart service.
> Two of my playing partners were forced to quit after 12 holes.

Very disappointing.

I have played this course many time when conditions were more than acceptable. But this time, I found that:
a) the greens are being taken over by crabgrass and putts bounce all over the place.
b) fairways and tee boxes could use watering.
c) the back nine took almost three hours to play and we did not see a single marshal who might help.
d) even though the day was Texas-summer hot and humid, the on-course water stations ran dry and there was no beverage cart service.

Nice track, long rough, ok greens

The track here has plenty of length and several nice holes you'll remember. The rough was long which hid balls off fairway. Fairway Grass was green and greens ok but have weed grass growing in them but was cut. Rolled ok. I bought a deal and would definitely play again.

Would have rather seen punched greens

Greens were in horrid condition with dry spots and weeds everywhere. Additionally, first cut rough was 4” thick or better. If you run a ball through the fairway, there is a great chance you will never find it again.

Nice all around

Tee boxes and fairways were really good, most of the greens though have crab grass all through out them so you ball won’t roll true but for the price I paid it was worth going.

Cool design that needs a major renovation

The course design was cool. Bunker placement, tree place, green complex made you think on every shot. However look like it had just been mowed by a 12 year old. Overall maintenance of the course isn’t great. Greens need redone. Invasive grass has taken over the greens big time. I paid a hot deal rate of sixty dollars. I was disappointed on how much I paid. But the realized hopefully they put that money towards a renovation. The pace of play and lack of control of that is complete different topic. If you are visiting lake Conroe make friends with some who is a country club member is this only public golf option just doesn’t suit the golfers eye. If you want to have a good time with some friends and bet some beers on the round then go for it.
