Houston Golf Courses are plentiful, playable, and probably the best maintained courses in the country. Unlike popular perception, Houston courses are not all flat, not all brown, and not all as overpriced as the locals seem to think. Indeed most run between $40 and $125, which is well below the national average. You'll find golf courses to suit every skill level and every budget. We will feature three Houston golf courses on this page for you to try on your next visit.
