Each round at The Woodlands Golf Club lets duffers express their club-flailing artistry on a lush canvas of undulating fairways and immaculate greens. Throughout the course, the resilient carpet of zoysia grass rewards accurate shots with hittable, short-grass lies, and ill-struck orbs run the risk of straying into a corruptive underbelly of mature trees, thick rough, and sand traps that moonlight as nude beaches. The babbling waters of a serpentine creek flow throughout the course, threatening to punish golfers for unsightly slices or snap hooks on 15 different holes. Divoteers can select from four hued tee boxes—the course measures 6,408 yards from the farthest tees—to suit their golf skills or fulfill a synesthetic desire to be near the color red, which tastes like strawberries. Assembled in teams of two or four, fairway farers traverse the grassy monolith astride a trusty golf cart, which helps to hunt down balls and climb the course’s consistent elevation changes.
The Woodlands Golf Club offers different rates throughout the day and week.

The Woodlands Golf Club
The golf carts at The Woodlands Golf Club take players on a grassy roller-coaster ride over frequent changes in elevation and down fairways brimming with challenging lies at every turn. Play intertwines perilously with a winding creek at many points, with a scant three holes, like a cautious wicked witch, managing to avoid water altogether. All 18 holes launch players down zoysia grass fairways from one of four tees, challenging each club in the bag en route to greens that hold approaches and roll true. On the last hole, the newly refurbished clubhouse provides a scenic backdrop for the homestretch.
