Practice Facilities in Houston

8 posts in this topic

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.

    • A figment of Bill Kristol's imagination.
    • LOL, I had to read it a bunch of times too.  Still not 100% but ... I think the confusion was brought in by their effort to minimize the severity of the "issue."  They could have just said "an issue that could prevent headphone audio controls from working," but I assume that they wanted to stress that the issue is minor and they're not always not working, only temporarily.   Funny thing is once they added to the "temporarily" they could have dumped the "not" - it means basically the same thing with or without the "not."
    • Entered the last week of the regular season on Monday.  It was also Senior Night.  Typically, it is a great night for us and did end good.  However, it was a rough start.  One of my seniors was pulled over driving to our course and had 3 other players in her car.  While she was given a warning, they got to our course late and so, were rushed to get dressed and on the course.  Naturally, she was shaken up.  My #1 was again medalist but we shot the worst score we have shot on they year.  We shot a 215 and that is terrible.  We lost to both opponents we played that night and have beaten both by 20 this year.  Today was our conference tournament.  It is held at a very tough course for girls, has a lot of sand and water and trees.  My #4 who is really my #3 but I defer to an older girl at #3 could not play since she was rushed to the emergency room.  She is very sick.  Anyway, my #1 shot a 77 on a windy cold day and was Medalist.  She out shot the next competitor by 11 strokes.  Her round was one of the most amazing rounds I've seen.  Our conference is very competitive in girl's golf and yet, the #1s from all the other teams could not keep up with her.  My #2 was also All Conference.  From there, we were terrible but in line with the other girls.  Still, when you are missing the young lady that has been averaging 94 per 18 holes, you are not going to win.  We didn't.  Regional Tournament next.  It is on our home course BUT we never get to play those holes.  We have 27 Holes and so, never are allowed on the first 18 due to league play.  I am hoping we get to play those holes now in practice since league is over.  Finally, Senior Night is a celebration of our Seniors.  The other girls bought them some very nice gifts.  It was also my birthday.  They got me an extremely nice Triad Golf Jacket.  I needed it today since we were in the mid 60s with a very hard wind.  I am so blessed to get to be their coach. 
    • Wow! Hillary only got 2% on my quiz.  I knew I didnt like her, but I didnt think it was that bad.
    • I tried to find the debate, but all I could find on was some new reality show called "The Biggest Liar", where two people went after each other as hard as they could for 90 minutes.  When it was over, there was no clear winner, and the only loser was the American people.   I took the quiz, I side with Evan McMullin...........who the hell is Evan McMullin?????
