The best in Lubbock and one of the best in Texas, but it comes with a price. It's not cheap for one, so try finding deals. Three things to look out for: ONE- Magnetized golf ball SAND TRAPS everywhere, they have a way of sucking your ball in. TWO - WIND, from any and every direction, both subtle and 30+... More

The course was fairly nice (and very nice for Lubbock), although whoever places it on those top 10 lists of public courses is smoking something. Beyond the course, the carts were dirty and falling apart, and the GPS did not work. The supposed pin placements were nowhere near accurate so it was a guessing game most of the time. The... More

Loved it but putting on the green was like putting on a concert surface; super quick. The club house was very nice! The day we were there the wind was from the north so it was a bit more difficult on some holes and easier on the harder ones.

One of the best golf courses in the nation. Greens and fairways well-maintained. Challenging, but worth the green fee!

This course was designed for the collegate golf team at Texas Tech. It has many sandtraps and few level spots. The prevailing West Texas wind makes a challange for all golfers. One of the best courses in West Texas.

He told me there were close to 100 sand bunkers on the course. I told him tha I believed him. I was on number 5 and hit about 30 by then. He... More

The Rawls is a top notch college course which although advertised as for everyone is not for beginners or those who have trouble with bunkers and mobility. In excellent shape now that under non university management.

The Rawls course is a great Links style golf course. Very challenging golf course but beware of the bunkers. Beautifully designed but treacherous if you land in them. The greens are slick and challenging. The views and landscape are incredible. Very unexpected and not like a lot of the flat areas of Lubbock. The food in the clubhouse was very... More
