Houston Golf

There are more than 200 golf courses in the greater Houston area. A majority of them are private golf courses, but that still leaves far more public golf courses than can be found in most other cities in the U.S.

Houston golf courses can be carved out of thick forests or built around wetlands; those on the west side of Houston might even feature some hints of the elevation changes more common to Hill Country courses.

There are a wide variety of styles and price ranges on Houston golf courses, and you're sure to find several that you love.

(Note: Green fees are rated as $, $$ or $$$; $ denotes a course in the least expensive third of courses in the area; $$ in the middle and $$$ in the most expensive third. Actual rates may vary seasonally or from year to year, so always make sure you know the actual rates before going to a course.)

1. Tournament Course at Redstone Golf Club ($$$)
Redstone Golf Club is half-private, half-public, and this is the public half. This Rees Jones-designed track opened in 2006 and is the host course for the PGA Tour's Shell Houston Open.

7. BlackHorse Golf Club - South Course ($$)
