Nearly ran out of daylight

I cut it kind of close with my 115 pm tee time, finishing in four and a quarter hours thanks to our foursome moving up to the red tees on the back nine. One of our group had only just begun golfing. I felt bad for him. As for me, it was another 90…four pars and four double bogeys. Hole 10 is harsh with a big water carry and a down hill lie. The green slopes severely. I enjoy the last two holes which will reward you for using strategic shots. Greens were bumpy and fast starting out. Sand was applied on number one. Fairways were in good shape.

Quit after nine holes due to pace of play

The pace of play was very slow and to top it off while we diligently kept pace with the groups in front, the group behind consistently were hitting their shots before we cleared with no apologies.

20 feet greens

The greens were super small and not well kept at all.

Good value, fair condition with plenty of character.

Good course layout with plenty of character. The course condition overall was pretty good for late November. I really like the finishing hole, a challenging par 5 finishing over water …

Improved Green Conditions

Living in the area I have played the course quite a bit. With that said I've always been disappointed in the green conditions, but I was pleasantly surprised with improvements made over the last few months on the putting surfaces. Over all the course was in decent condition and played relatively quick for a weekend. Driving range could use some still.

No bang for the buck

I have been waiting to write my review until I played the majority of courses in Houston, and this course is by far on the lower end of the totem pole. For price you can play tons of other course that are way better quality, I won’t see myself coming back unless they change the green fees. Also they don’t have enough carts so you might show up to a tee time and have to wait for a cart, which is ridiculous.

Just don’t go

Didn’t have carts for the tee time initially then carts died. Looked like an abandoned waste land on the back 9 with all the dead carts around. Probably upwards of 20 carts were dead on the course.
