Lake Waco opened to the public in 1964, but eventually became private in 1969 after several ownership changes. The club features a quality 18-hole track that annually hosts a qualifying tournament for the Texas State Open, as well as a nice little confidence-building executive course.

The designs offer the basics, with standard-width fairways that roll to medium size greens of average speed. A few lakes come into play on both courses.

On the Main Course, the most difficult holes are Nos. 7 and 8. The first goes 603 yards and plays like 800 into the wind. No. 8 is a scenic par 3, featuring a sloped green surrounded by water and majestic trees.

Getting there : From I-35 south find Lake Shore exit, and turn west. Drive to Steinbeck Bend Rd. and turn right. When you reach Hwy. 1637, turn right and drive to Flat Rock Rd., where you’ll turn left and see the course.

    Former private club now open for public play; located close to the northern end of Lake Waco. Course is short for today's standards but is a quality layout that can be quite challenging. Tree lined fairways make accuracy a premium, solid set of par 3's, and long par 5's test your game all thru the bag. This course is famous as a former host course for the LPGA Tour (1966-1973). The Quality Chek'd Classic was played on this course for 8 years with legendary names Kathy Whitworth, Mickey Wright, Judy Rankin, Sandra Haynie, and Carol Mann on the list of winners.

    Horrible course. Fairways were covered in clover. Lost 5+ balls that were obviously hit right down the center of the fairway. Greens were very slow and hard to read. I will for sure never go back!
