“still winter, kind of...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

I played at the end of February. It was a little cool, and a lot windy!

The course is in the midst of an ongoing housing development, but doesn't have that feeling. The design isn't cramped by the homes. They have made good use of the land to not have the layout compromised by the residential real estate.
Overall it's a nice facility. The clubhouse isn't ostentatious by any means. But, gets the job done. There is a small pro shop and small snack bar positioned between the nines.

It is still winter golf. So, playing conditions are just that. The course was in very good condition for the time of year. The greens were unbelievably FAST!!! I think that I have putted on kitchen floors that might have been slower! Three birdies and three three putts!!! One downhill putt that I barely touched from about 30 feet went 20 feet past the hole! lol Probably somewhere between 12-14 on the stimp meter!!! Maybe more! With the grass being very dry and dormant, add in a little down hill and down wind, and there was nothing to help slow the ball down. I'm anxious to play here under normal conditions.

The layout was challenging enough. But had plenty of opportunities for scoring. Some "local knowledge" is a bonus on a couple of holes. Especially two of the par 5s. The 2nd hole is a par 5 with water down the whole right side and a dogleg to the right at the end before the green. I hit my drive down the middle. Hit a hybrid to lay up at 100, right down the middle. And when I got up there, a tree on the right side of the fairway to the left of the water completely blocked any approach to the green!!! lol Easy to avoid, but you have to know that it is there! There was another one on the back that got me as well.

There are courses that are a little less expensive to play for sure. But, for the few extra bucks, if you play a better course, it's worth it.

I'll be back to play here again for sure.

“Nice golf, great greens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Nice GC in NW side of town. Known for best greens in Houston which is pretty accurate. Nice course with unique holes.

“Best course in Cypress”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is probably my favorite course in Cypress. It plays well and is typically in very good condition. Unlike most courses in Houston, the greens are kept such that they are reasonably fast. The price is fair too.

“Played in a fund raiser event at Cypress Lakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Played Cypress Lakes for the first time in several years recently in a high school fund raiser. Cypress Lakes is excellent for such an event. They have a large pavillion area which is perfect. The course was in excellent shape. Greens roll nice, fast and true but definitely are a challenge. Since it was a fund raiser, I did not really have much interaction with the staff but all that I did talk with were very nice and helpful.

“Great Course in Cypress”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

The course is great for the value. The greens are tuff, some with alot of anglulations. Take into consideration the wind and the water on the course, it will challenge the best folders. The 10th hole, par 5, if you play it right, you cutoff about 75 yards and start thinking about Eagle.
