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

The Rawls Golf Course looks like a miniature piece of the Caprock of West Texas with lots of hills and valleys. A links course that will challenge your ability to miss the bunkers and find the fairway. Bunkers that play like canyons. Water hazards that call your ball. If it was easy we wouldn't play here.

Lots of rolling terrain which was a surprise in Lubbock. Troon Golf manages the course so you get everything Troon Golf delivers from conditions to the clubhouse. Plays like a links course, especially when the wind is up. Very playable for all levels yet challenging at the same time. And the green fee on a Wednesday morning was $33 -... More

challenging course in great shape. Laid back atmosphere. Fairly difficult for a 25 handicap, but I managed to stay out of the pot bunkers all day. Love the clubhouse with patio, good food & service.

The Rawls Course, located next to the Texas Tech campus, is a very fun design, and well maintained. Although everything in Lubbock is flat, a lot of dirt was brought in to create mounds and give the course an appearance far different from the surrounding area. The holes can be challenging, but the fairways are fairly generous, so it is... More

It's not flat, it's not easy, and it's not what you would expect in Lubbock, TX. It is one terrific golf course, well-run, well conditioned, and a bargain compared to courses in major metropolitan areas. It's not a golf course where you can just whack the ball out there and play it. You need to think your way around the... More

This course is built to resemble a true Scottish Links style course. It is LONG but fairways are wide open. This is a mid handicapper and up type course, so if you're 20+ just be advised that you won't be setting the world on fire because the greens are brutal for us amateurs. But there are 4 different tees, so... More
