Although it is a municipal course, I think it is respectfully maintained. The driving range is extremely fluid, though there are often many stand by the wayside type folks hanging around. Mid day would be the best time of day to visit this course.
I will definitely return to this location as I'm new to the area.
I enjoyed playing here. For a municipal course, it is in relatively good condition. Plenty of bunkers throughout for a challenge.
It's a public course so you shouldn't expect the greenest greens and cleanest fairways.
The price for 1 + 1/2 of a cart is $49 which is pretty steep.
You can go anytime during the day and play but expect to wait. Can get crowded at times. My average wait is around 30 mins or so.
For a municipal course, it's about as good as it's going to get. Definitely the best one in Houston. Tee times are kind of hard to come by on the weekends but it's not impossible. They maintain the course fairly well and it's close to town so not much I can complain about. The range is pretty fairly priced too. You used to be able to buy a card for $85 and get $100 credit but looks like they've stopped that. So overall, a decent place to golf if you set your expecations correctly.
Nice course in the middle of Houston that is opened to the public. The caveat is is whether you can get a T time through their odd lottery system online.
Course has decent length but a pretty boring layout for the most part. The rough can get thick, which can spoil your Tee to green plans.
There is a driving range there which is all mat's, no grass. The balls are pretty cheap but really tore up like any puppy's favorite chew toy. The chipping/putting area is very nice but can get crowded when the local golf teams show up.
This was one of Freddie Couple's favorite courses and I can see why. It's a treat to walk this course and have a meal at the Becks Prime which dubs as the club house.
Edited: played may 2012, greens are in bad shape. Bumpy with dead spots all over. Down graded to 3 stars. Weekend starters are rude, and the round could get long. But not surprised since this is ran by your tax $$ by the government.
