I love these 2 courses. There is a perfect blend of difficulty and playability. The atmosphere here is so relaxing. The greens were awesome. They don’t break very much. I missed a lot of putts thinking the ball would break. If I have a complaint it would be the closely cut fairway and fringe surrounding the greens. You have to clip it just right to get solid contact. I used my putter a lot from off the green. The seniors, almost everybody, who probably like this to enable run up shots.

The Mountain View is definitely less demanding off the tee than Firecliff 18. There was a little disappointment with the greens today. They were a little dried out and hard. But I must admit the ball rolled surprisingly true. The rest of the course is in great shape. I was taking many large divots in the fairway and had to use a lot of sand for repairs. The club really can dig out here. Or was it my overly steep angle of attack. Yep, I need a swing lesson.

Wow this course gets a lot of play. Maybe because I played it on the weekend. Condition wise there is nothing spectacular. At the same time, there is nothing bad about the conditions . I found myself rating most everything a 6. One bunker needed some more sand, however. My club just bounced into the ball and not under it. This is not an easy course. Trees water and bunkers all come into play out here. If you can shape your ball flight all the better. The well bunkered greens and undulations on some of them really give this course a private club feel. There are party golfers, regulars, snobs and first timers that play here, especially on a weekend. The houses baordering the must have had famous people residing in them. Not anymore, some where vacant while others were in shambles. There are signs on the course describing this history.

After not having played this course since 1985, I found myself in awe at the span of time in between rounds at a golf course. The 2groups ahead of me were ignoramouses, but I didn’t care. I was taking the nostalgia in. I played it when the course was called, Winterwood. Back then the greens were awful. Today they were a 10!!!. They are slow but smooth with no blemishes. I found myself wondering if the grass is really real. The rest of the course while nice doesn’t match the caliber of the greens. It is the same pattern...houses(some are shacks)to desert to fairway to wash on almost every hole. The wash is nasty. The banks are steep. The grass on the banks is ugly. I hit a few that I thought were fine only to be swallowed by the wash. On several holes the fairway narrows to a sliver. Hybrids and fairway woods are needed off the tee. The course is harder than the 129 slope rating. I gave my Winterwood scorecard to the pro shop back where it originated. I still can’t believe those greens!!!

After not playing in the Vegas area in 21 years it was good to be back. I played Stallion Mountain due to their 30$ rate at 9:30 and the close proximity to The Club At Sunrise. On other websites this course got not so good reviews. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the conditions were and how enjoyable the course is. The greens are a bit slow. But they are nice as you get a true roll. With the exception of thin fairways due to cart traffic the course overall is in good shape. The back 9 is a little more demanding off the tee than front.

With a schedule change I was able to play one more time in Texas. This place is a golfers paradise if you like secluded courses. I loved it. The greens were almost fully recovered from being punched. The fairways and rough were Goose Creek like...superb condition. The course is very fair but lethal if you spray (like I did) it too far off line. On some holes there can be really tricky pin placements. Some of the greens have a lot of undulation. The carts where brand new. The staff was friendly. The golfers quickly let me play through. The range was nice. The chipping and putting greens were elaborate. The tiny log cabin pro shop was unique. I have got to come out and play here again before our move is final. Oh and I overclubbed a lot early on. The 95 degree heat made the ball really fly.

Possibly the last time I play in the Houston area I picked a winner in Houston National!!!
There are 2 courses here. One is private (Sterling National). The other is this one. I am reminded of PGA West Stadium course while playing here today. Of course, H. National is not as penalizing as PGA West is. The greens were amazingly smooth and true. If there were no sand I would have given them a 10. The fairways and rough have patches of bare ground and divots but are generally well kept. I loved the fact that the ground wasn't so hard. The tee boxes on all of the par 3's were the only thing given low marks. They were thin and too sandy. At 7337 yards from the back tees a low handy golfer can be challenged. Forgiving fairways and roll allow high handy golfers to enjoy their day as well. I wish I could make this my home course! $60 for 2 rounds, cart, a delicious hamburger, chips, and a beer. I will miss this place :( :(

This course is in much better shape than nearby Heron Lakes. It appears at first to be a relatively easy course. But watch out. There are many water hazards in play. The wind and hard ground turns this flat course into a 5 or 6 shot harder golf course. The greens were aerified last week but are healing nicely. This place has an excellent practice facility and driving range. The mats are a little hard, however. The course reminds me a bit of Mile Square.

I don't know where to begin. I decided to play this par 65 course to gain some confidence in my game. What I got was one of the worse kept courses I have ever seen. I have come to the conclusion that to play well kept courses in the Houston area you have to spend at least $50. This course has very challenging, and tight short par 4's. At this time in Texas the ground is hard. This brings all water easily into play. On one hole the 13th the fairway narrowed to just 21 paces between the OB and the lateral hazard. Every hole plays a lot shorter due the tremendous roll you get here. But spray ever so slightly and it is wet, gone, or OB. If the greens where not a 1 but 7 I would be less hostile in this review.

The greens here are much much better than nearby Southwyck. Clear Creek reminds me very much of Links at Olivas in Oxnard. Clear Creek has far more penalizing native areas, however. If your ball enters it will not come out. Combine this with the hot wind and a 4 putt, a lost ball just off the fairway extinguished any life force in me. This is the third course I have played in Texas. All of them including this one have a lot off water hazards. With Golf Now this course was an absolute steal. 21$ with a cart included on a good track. The tees, bunkers, and fairways were all not great but decent.

This course should be called Sadwyck. The greens are terrible. There was one temporary green. The fairways were good to immaculate on some holes. But fair on other holes. The rough well that was rough. It was like playing with the goats. The ingredients are there for a great golf course. It may have been once in the past. There are many nice water holes. I found myself in too many hardpan lies as well. If the greens were just decent the entire complexion of this course would change. You would have to pay me to play this course again.

I finally played golf in Houston area after living here for a year. Cinco Ranch opened in 1994. It is a course that gets lots of play. It shows. The fairways are thin and the greens are a bit bumpy. Everything is in mediocre condition except the bunkers. I thought the sand was of excellent quality. The course reminds me of Tustin Ranch. However, Cinco Ranch has more blinds shots. There are numerous water hazards that you can’t see from the tee. On several holes there are lateral hazards that have grass so thick that forget about it if your ball enters. I like the course but I think I would rather drive farther towards the city and play cheaper muni courses.
