One of the Houston area's best values: Pearland (Texas) Golf Club at Country Place

PEARLAND, Texas -- Coming off a two-year renovation by architect Jeff Blume, Pearland Golf Club at Country Place has a new look to go with its slightly new name (it used to be simply known as Country Place Golf Club), and it's one of the best values in the Houston area.

Located just 20 minutes south of downtown Houston, the 6,625-yard, par-72 layout was renovated with new green complexes, new bunkers and new tees. The new Tif-Eagle greens are among the best in the region. The course also got new tees, which were grassed with Celebration Bermuda. And all the fairways were resurfaced as well with the original routing, giving the course an updated look and feel.

The renovation on the front nine was completed in late summer 2014, while the back nine work was done about a year later.

As for the golf course, it plays longer than its yardage, primarily because of the doglegs and water on half the holes that will force you to think twice about going for the short par 5s in two. And, fortunately, there are five sets of tees, with the shortest playing just less than 5,000 yards, so it's playable by all levels of golfers.

When you think of Houston, you think of the energy industry, the port of Houston and maybe the Galleria -- not golf resorts. But yes, Virginia, there are golf resorts in the Houston area but not many. And while none of them are spectacular, there are actually some pretty good values.

So maybe you've got a long weekend or three afternoons during the week in Houston and about $200 to spend on golf. Not a problem, because $200 goes a long way in the Bayou City, and best of all, there's more than 100 courses from which to choose. All but one of them can be played for less than $100. So with that in mind, let's set our goals a little modestly. Choosing just three courses isn't easy, but my picks don't take you too far out of town, fit well within budget and are courses that say Houston all over them.
