    Great test. Accuracy and proper shot lines are a must. From the tee, it looks like you can just rip it, but you need to consider the landing area. Not every hole needs driver. Rough includes native plants with very sharp needles and deep native grasses. You may not find it in the rough and looking may be tough on your legs or pants. Beware. Water is only in play on a few holes. Elevation changes keep the course interesting and will require adjustment for your club selection. An easy course to walk, we opted for carts for time.

    The only reason it didn't get five stars was because the poa-invaded greens were in need of attention. It's late winter and a new growing season should improve things. Maintenance was clearly on-going all over the course. Already a top course in Texas, it could be nationally ranked with attention to detail. A minor quibble: traps were difficult to get in and out of for this 55-year old. Despite the presence of rakes, raking was non-existent.

    I was there for the golf and was not disappointed. Staff was friendly, carts were clean. It was a stormy weekday so it was not crowded. The Rawls, as it's called, is probably better for low-handicappers. If you're in this part of Texas, its totally worth the effort to add this to your trip. Probably better for low-handicappers.

    Great course to play. Great test of your golfing skill. All types of shots needed. It looks like a "grip it and rip it" but you will pay the price! Accuracy is a must!
