Granbury Country Club ReviewGranbury Country Club Golf Course is a nine hole course located just a few miles from downtown Granbury. There are 4 sets of tee boxes, which means you plan the first round from one set and the second nine from a different set of tee boxes. This shortens or lengthens each hole somewhat, but doesn't change the character of the hole, primarily because most of the tee boxes are close to each other.
This course is a "what you see is what you get" type course, where you can see the flag from each tee box and the majority of the holes are straight in front of the tee box. The majority of the terrain is flat with a couple holes having some up and down slope. Most of the fairways are lined with a few trees. Watch out for the one sand trap, other than a creek that crosses the fairway, you won't find the course challenging. The fairways were in below average condition - a couple steps above prairie golf.
The greens are very small and all of them have some slope and minor undulation. They are also turtle top and its hard to get to get your ball to hold, which means it will roll off the green and back onto the fairway. They seemed slow, a little difficult to read, and in fair condition.
The clubhouse is very dated and doesn't look like it has been updated since it was built in the 70's. The clubhouse has snack and microwave food only and little to no equipment or gear. The good news is the course is an easy walk and very inexpensive for 9 or 18 holes.

Here's How Texas Outside Determines the Scorecard Rating
The Texas Outside rating scale ranges from 1 to 10 – a perfect 10 course would be something like this: links along a cliff overlooking the Pacific ocean and bordered by tall trees; lush fairways on rolling hills with lots of natural hazards; water (which is crystal clear) on most of the holes; immaculate greens (but they are undulating and tough); lots of variety and character (each hole is completely different and includes blind shots, elevation changes, doglegs, and significant challenges); perfectly manicured traps with the whitest and prettiest sand you’ve ever seen; a nice club house with great food and a 19th hole; a GPS; plenty of beverage carts or your own cooler and ice; and it only costs $40 bucks! What this means is that you probably won’t find any 10s in Texas – try Cabo San Lucas, Pebble Beach, or some of the Hawaii courses!
All of the above determines the overall score for the golf course. In other words, we like courses that are pretty, fun, very challenging with a lot of variety, and fairways and greens in excellent condition – all for $40. We also tend to play the courses that are affordable for the masses, which means in the $30 to $80 range. We rate hard and we haven’t found a 10 in Texas yet – don’t worry we haven’t given up and we’re still looking.
