Tee Off at Award-winning Woodforest Golf Club.

February 27, 2020

Avid golfers know that one of the best courses in the Houston area is right here in Woodforest. Don’t take our word for it. Last year, the Woodforest Golf Club was recognized as one of the top 10 courses in Texas and one of the top five most beautiful courses in Houston.

The club ranked No. 6 on the annual Sports Day golf club rankings. It was ranked No. 39 out of all the public and private golf courses in Texas.

The list is compiled by a panel of golf professionals, instructors, players, general managers, course designers and others based on seven criteria: versatility, shot-making capabilities, afterthoughts, beauty, maintenance and enjoyment.

The beauty of the golf course was recognized by HAR.com in 2019 when the organization ranked it No. 3 on its list of the top five most beautiful courses in the Houston area based in part on the club’s stately clubhouse.

What makes the course one of the best in Texas is it has three different nine-hole courses that can be combined into three different 18-home combinations. The

fairways are lined with pines and oaks. Play is challenging due to strategically placed sand bunkers and Fish Creek, calling for careful club selection and precise shot-making. 

In addition to the course, a state-of-the-art training complex features three dedicated instruction bays, one bay for club fitting and an area for training, fitness and rehabilitation. A large grass tee for instruction offers a 105-foot synthetic turf. There is also a practice target green. Private and group instruction is available along with the AXIS Golf Academy.

Woodforest residents live within walking or golf cart distance of the club and often head out to the Woodforest Grille for drinks, dinner and special events.
