If you're the type who lives for this game, at Golf Club of Houston, we understand. Ours is a club for the true enthusiast, who wants nothing but the finest golf experience in all facets of the game. Not a "country club". A golf club.
Golf Club of Houston, formerly known as Redstone Golf Club, opened in 2003 with an 18-hole Member Course designed by the renowned Jim Hardy and Peter Jacobson. This 900-acre land was beautifully crafted with Cypress, Live Oak and Pine trees.
Since 2003, Golf Club of Houston hosted the PGA TOUR's Houston Open. For the first three years the Shell Houston Open was held on the Member Course and moved to the Tournament Course in 2006. Rees Jones/David Toms, course architects, were instrumental with incorporating a beautiful yet challenging layout designed to test the best players in the world while maintaining a positive experience for players of all skill levels.
You will not find any better practice facilities in or around the city of Houston, if not the entire state of Texas, than right here at Golf Club of Houston.
Both our Member Course and Tournament Course boast a 31,000 square foot teeing area to create a double-ended driving range, featuring nine target areas ranging from 100-300 yards. An extensive short game area includes the following:
Two large practice putting greens:
- The Tournament Course practice green has miniverde bermudagrass and consists of 10,000 sq ft of putting surface that mimics the contours found on the course. In October each year, this green is overseeded with bentgrass, poa trivialis and perennial ryegrass.
- The Member Course practice green has TifEagle bermudagrass and also boasts a 10,000 sq ft putting surface. This green imitates the subtle breaks found on the hard-to-read Member Course greens.
Two 6,000 sq ft chipping greens with bunkers that provide the practice enthusiast the opportunity to chip shots from all types of lies and be laser sharp from anywhere.
A 1.5 acre Member Only short game area that includes two 5,000 sp ft TifEagle burmudagrass greens that can accommodate up to 80 yard wedge shots. Members are able to refine their bunker play by practicing out of the 3,000 sq ft of bunkers that surround the greens. TifEagle burmudagrass fairways and roughs found on the Member Course were also used for this exciting amenity.
