Eagle Pointe Golf Club
One of Houston's best kept secrets.
As expected, my recent round at Eagle Pointe was very enjoyable. Pace of play was excellent, but it was Easter morning, so the course wasn't as crowded as usual. For those who haven't played Eagle Pointe yet, the course layout is geared towards accuracy and good decision making, not just long ball hitters. I tend to hit lots of 3-woods and hybrids off the tees to put the ball in good approach positions. If only I could putt...

Super fun. Love the greens.
I really like this course. It's a fun challenging layout that requires all shots in your bag and some you don't depending how far into the trees you put it. The elevation changes are refreshing as it can be kind of flat in the area. The greens are fast and roll true. If you haven't played out here you are missing out.

A hidden gem that is always a top value.
Eagle Pointe has long been a favorite of mine. For the rate, I believe it is the best golf value in the Houston area. The only issue with the condition on this day was that they had just sanded the greens the week before. A totally acceptable condition that you just have to be OK with. Even in this condition the greens rolled quite true. I brought a buddy that was looking to play Cypresswood Traditions instead that day, and he agreed that Eagle Pointe rivals that level of course. Now combine the course level with a $50 weekend rate vs $80 at Cypresswood and it just makes it very hard to go elsewhere. Do yourself a favor and give Eagle Point a play. Mount Belvieu is not THAT far out of town.

Spring Prep in Progress
This is a great layout with very fast play. We got around in less than 3.5hr! Crews were out in full force... it looks as if they punched and sanded greens a few weeks ago and they are starting to come back. Greens are rolling smooth and will be even better going into March and April. Actively punching the rough at this point, and sanding fairways, not of which impeded play. Looking foward to going back in a few weeks once growing season starts, this course will shine.

Nice elevation changes. Beautiful course.
Great deal, this course is well maintained and pose an enjoyable challenge with towering pines and daunting dog legs. Loved every minute of it. Views are breathtaking.

Greens were punched, but ball rolled very well.
Greens were punched, but ball rolled very well. Still a tad wet from recent rains but ball never plugge in fairways. We play on a Sun., price was a little high but the course was in fine shape. Go Play at this Grand Layout, it is in it's prime..

First Class Facility & Personnel
Bent grass greens done right! I learned to play golf on bent grass greens at a fine course in Missouri. Moving to Texas I found Bermuda grass greens a more dominant choice for most courses. Eagle Point is exceptional in many ways, but the added bonus of bent grass greens coupled with the narrow, twisting, hills of a meticulously maintained facility and course staffed by professional people is a winning package. We will be back as often as we can find the time. We hope this "secret" gem will remain undiscovered for a time so we may enjoy many more visits in the months to come.

Most underrated course near Houston
Great course and very challenging. Cons: Far from Houston, takes me around 40 mins from downtown; greens are not slow, but prefer faster (although faster than most courses in Houston), carts are old (but was told they are getting a new fleet of carts next week); pace of play is a little slow pretty much every weekend I've played here. Now the Pros: Great challenge and an overall fun course; lots of elevation changes that you will not find in the majority of Houston courses; well maintained and friendly staff; very reasonable prices.
Summary: I've played almost every course in Houston and surrounding areas and this course is in my top 5. My score will not reflect this, but I enjoy every time i can make it out here.
About me, playing about 10 years, handicap currently around 9, had it as low as 4 a couple years ago.

Challenging course. Greens were nice. Rolls well and true. Fairways could be better, but it is winter.
Pace of play was slow. Numerous issues with carts. Hopefully the situation will improve once they receive new ones next week, as I hear the starter say.
Having said all of the above, the course is far away for most houstonians. I would surely go back but for the remoteness.

love the elevation tee boxes
Very nice course and will always come back to play it.

Course Conditions Above Average
Great Course. Excellent condition. Gets lots of play so don't be in a hurry when you go out. Pace of play can drag at times but in my opinion it was worth it.

Eagle Ponte is a beuatiful course. Each hole is an eyeful and
the conditions are great. tee boxes and fairways have plenty
of grass and are well marked. The greens are fast but are in
great shape. Out of bounds are plainly marked and overall
a super challenge for any golfer. We had to play cart pathes only due to recent rains but since a great deal. Would reconmend it to any golfer.

This course is beautiful, however players jam too much and some of players have not manners. They hit several times at same place.
This course is beautiful and well maintained, however players jam too much and players of front of my team have not manners. They hit several times at same place and makes jam to delay playing.
If you don't meet players which I met today, you will satisfied this course.

Rolling hills and wooded areas just perfect!
The rolling hills are so different from most h-town courses and was quite a change of pace. The practice facilities are great and the pro shop well stocked. Would definitely recommend to anyone to play a round here!

Great course wish it was closer
I had a great time playing your course. I wish you guys were closer to town so I could play here more often.

Super fast greens
Fun course to play. Course is well taken care of and the greens are in great condition as well. They are very hard and very fast so approach placement and the ability to backspin is needed.

Nice setting and great piece of land
Elevation changes, nice greens, friendly staff.
Very consistent quality and the trees are beautiful.
Best value on GolfNow, possibly in the entire state.
The greens are very good and the course was in near pristine condition on 10/18/12.

Great course. Excellent conditions.
Eagle Pointe is one of the best courses to play on the east side of Houston. Course condition was very good despite getting 2+ inches of rain a couple of days before. Had to play cart path only but was not a problem. Greens were in excellent shape and very fast. Course layout is very good with some fairly hard holes. Course has just enough elevation changes to make it interesting. Great practice areas with driving tee area and putting and chipping greens. This course is a must play

Course is in great shape. Greens roll good, but kind of slow. On this day there were a lot of people out there so there was some waiting. The overall course condition is very good. Great value through GolfNow!!

Good course with nice price
The condition of this course has been improved since my last visit 3 months ago. It's a very 'nice' price to play comparing with other courses near by the Houston area. Very enjoyable!

Always in good shape
Owned by the county so their water is fee and it is always in great shape.
Greens are moderately fast.
Good value compared to other courses in houston. If you can play during the week, great deals on Golfnow.

Very fair course with true putting greens and lush fairways.
I can't think of a better value in the Houston area... The first hole is a little scary with a big elevation drop but it's so nice to play a course with elevation changes in and otherwise very falt SE Texas. The greens had recently been sanded but were still fast and true... What more could you want, especially for the price..
Also had a very very nice practice area...

September 25, 2012
this is one of the best courses to play in this area. the greens are the best that i have i have played and i have mentioned it ot eveery one that plays that i know.

Like the layout lots of doglegs, not many straight holes, par 3's are tough, especially depending on tee markers. Green's are great, can be real fast. It's in our regular rotation of 4 courses.
