Note that these (the clubs outside of your home club) are free, not even a cart fee, M-F and Sat-Sun after 12.

You can access more courses for just a cart fee with the same time restrictions. They are:

1)Bay Oaks
2)The Woodlands CC
3) Riverbend CC

Wildcat is good in the summer, get a little breeze, nice views of the city.
Gus Wortham is legit now. will test your game.
Memorial get a ton of play but a good course.

Kingwood is not too far from downtown, during the weekend 25 min drive. They have 3 or 4 courses, good practice facilities.

Riverbend is one of the best tracks in the Houston area. (Located in Sugarland)

It makes you use every club in your bag and it always test your game.

Plus there are always a bunch of great guys to play with.

If I was going to join another club it would be there.

Clubcorp is a no brainer with access to all the Kingwood courses plus all the other tracts in and around Houston. I got buddies down in League City and we alternate drives to each hood and Kingwood also has a cool water park and pool.

Playing in an Am Tour event at Kingwood The Forest this weekend! How well does it dry? I guess it's all dependent on the rain we get this week, but if the rain ends on Wednesday, should it be atleast 90 degree rule by Saturday?

Kingwood tends to become a swamp with a good rainfall. But this week's forecast is all over the place with amounts.

It probably dries the best out of the 4. It's been very wet lately. They are off the cart paths today. With the forecast calling for rain today-Wed. then it's 50/50 that it'll be 90 deg. on Saturday. The range at the Forest drains better than the main one though.

If you’re living downtown, don’t join a club. During the week, play Wildcat and Memorial when you can get on.

Make weekend trips to Cypress, Humble, Katy, Woodlands, Lake Jackson, etc. to play some others.

I live in the loop and there isn’t a lot of good golf in the city unless you join a club. I have a group and we play different public courses and hop around to a few clubs where our friends are members.

I have a friend who tried to get me to do Clubcorp but to someone who lives and works in the city it didn't make sense.

From what I have been told you have to play weekdays (who can with traffic) or after 12 on weekends.

You can take that $400 and play in the city after work and weekend mornings at good public tracks.

There are some crazy high prices public courses though...$109 to play Black horse..No thanks.
