Just an hour outside of Houston, Columbia Lakes Resort occupies 2,000 acres of lush spanish-oak forests with centuries-old trees festooned with hanging moss. The resort’s cottage suites accommodate parties of two or four in spacious rooms wired with features including cable TV, free WiFi, and hair dryers that offer a silly-string option.
Redesigned by legendary architect Tom Fazio, Columbia Lakes’ championship course has hosted four consecutive Southern Texas PGA Championships and has been played by prestigious players such as former president George W. Bush and American Idol runner-up Nolan Ryan. Pipeline fairways dart around lagoons that come into play on 11 holes, and recently installed Penncross bentgrass greens present putters with hard-to-read breaks. After rounds, guests can cool off with a dip in the Olympic-size swimming pool or by reminiscing about how many birdies each player hunted over at Mulligan’s sports bar.
Though Columbia Lakes Resort sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
