Played this earlier in the week and despite the horrible drought, the course is in great shape. The greens were recently aerated and the tee boxes looked solid. The lakes are pretty low, but everything otherwise was fantastic. Bev cart came by twice in our round and speed of play was excellent (no waiting on a single hole!)

My only complaint (minor) is that there were several fairways/holes that were not well marked. While the cart paths were very detailed, several of the fairways were confusing to our group -- which flag to go after. We weren't the only group that had this difficulty. Not the end of the world, but it could be improved.

Difficult course. Must be on your A game. Fairways are tight. Water on a bunch of holes and blind shots on 3-4 holes. Greens are not pushovers. Difficult course if you're playing it for the first time, but could get easier on replays.

Enjoyed the course. Very challenging. It will force you to use your course managment skills quite a bit. Staff was courteous and friendly. Fairways were good. Greens on the other looked much like the surface of the moon...cratered as hell.

Expensive, low bang for the buck and forget it if you are a walker. I maybe the only one in Houston but I do not like either one of these golf courses. This place is way, way, way over hyped. Oh, I can see downtown Houston, whoppee...way too many blind shots and forced carries. Have played both more than once and left feeling the course designer was trying to see how much "goofy" stuff could be put on one golf course. Go to Memorial and save some money, only way I'm going back is on someone else's nickel...

I liked the course alot. I was very narrow at times and if you like a course where you must use every bag in your club try this one.
