Practice Facilities in Houston

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Just moved to Houston a couple of months ago and I'm looking for a good practice facility (one where I can practice short game as well as full shots). I'm in the Galleria area, so something out my direction would be preferable. Only requirement is that they don't use mats.

 

Any suggestions?

There isn't much by the Galleria unless you go to the local courses like Wildcat.  Probably the closest range to you is the Marti Golf Center in West Houston.  I live in Sugar Land and go to the Stafford Golf Center on US Hwy. 90.  All grass, no mats, no real putting green, a decent green for pitching for up to 60 yards or so, and a buy 10 buckets get 5 free program, so it's 15 100 ball buckets for $80.  If you like to practice like I do it's a pretty good deal.  Good people and a decent, although anything but high-end, place to hit.  PM me if you want for more details.

If you venture out to Katy, TX there is a new Top Golf there.  Fun for showing off for girls with food beer and it's easy to hit the back of the range and get "points.

 

Wildcat like mentioned before is a great facility.  I've played many tournaments there, two courses and a nice practice range.

 

Stay away from Gus Wortham Municipal.  There is a bum on hole #2 that steals your drive and tries to sell it back for $1.

 

Welcome to Houston!

If you're willing to go North there is Tour 18 in Humble which is a pretty awesome course.  Each hole is replicated from a famous hole on a Tour course.  (3 holes from Amen corner, Bay Hill, Blue Monster, etc).  Affordable tee times.

 

If you're looking for a CC Canongate is affordable and has courses in The Woodlands (where I am) and also down in League City.

Thanks. I've been to Top Golf a couple of times in Katy and up in Dallas. It's fun, but way too expensive to be a realistic practice facility. Plus I never practice off of mats.

 

I'll have to get out to Wildcat to check it out.
