Review of The Club at Rebecca Creek
The Club at Rebecca Creek is located in some gently rolling countryside just outside of Spring Branch. The Club at Rebecca Creek changed ownership in 2013 and the new team is working hard on making significant improvements, particularly to the course conditions. According to a couple locals that we talked to, the course conditions have improved dramatically and is in the best shape its ever been in since the new owners took over and the difficult water issues have been resolved.
The Club at Rebecca Creek is a country course with gently rolling terrain, few to no homes, lots of wildlife, and tree lined fairways. Some of what makes for a fun and demanding round at The Club at Rebecca Creek includes:
If you tend to spray the ball, you should consider leaving the big dog in the bag and maybe move up a tee box and focus on hitting it straight - you'll have a fun and more enjoyable round!
When we played in July the fairways were in pretty rough shape thanks to the severe drought over the last year. They were dry and firm and rough with some weeds and bare spots - same for the rough. The good news is they are playable and you'll get lots of extra roll that you'll need to manage. Most of the fairways are a little tight and all but the "valley" four holes are tree lined.
The greens at The Club at Rebecca Creek were in very good shape. They were fairly fast (around a 10 or so) and firm. They range in size from average to large and most have some slope and several have both slope and undulation. They run true and we found them easy to read. The fringe was also in good condition.
Other amenities include a driving range, snack bar, full service cocktail bar, clubhouse with (5) TV’s, and large swimming pool.
Bottom line - the weather has impacted the conditions, but the course is still very playable, the greens are good, and you'll have an enjoyable round at a very reasonable rate.
Troy Shaver, PGA Professional/General Manager, is committed to return the course to impeccable course conditions, a helpful and friendly staff, and a wealth of amenities and amenities.
Rates: $20.00 to $29.00
Service is country friendly, the pro shop has small supply of the basics, a driving range, snack bar, full service cocktail bar, clubhouse with (5) TV’s, and large swimming pool. We didn't try it but we heard that the food is good.
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.
