Old course has character. Good difficulty variation. No nearly-impossible-to-par holes. Nice.

The course is in reasonable shape and the staff is very friendly. Greens are just okay... kind of what you expect for a muni. Lots of elevation for a Houston course. Quite a few of the holes are so close together that it can be kind of hairy as you sometimes are ducking errant golf balls while standing on a tee box. But most of the people are cordial. Historical so maybe worth a trip.

I love this course and it's going through some rennovations so bear with them for a while. This is the same course that Howard Hughes played on and the same course that legal eagles such as RaceHorse Haynes plays on. Great course that is playable and the condition is excellent. Play it for the price and walk the walk of legends.

I learned to play golf on this course, many good times there.
They have been working on the course & have a good staff.
Good golf at a good price.

I played this course 2 years ago, and there were homeless people in the creek just beyond the #2 teebox. I'm not kidding, you had to literally hit over human beings to reach the fairway.
