We understand that Kingwood Cove is closed.
Kingwood Cove is a down-to-earth course that can be played and enjoyed by "Nicky New Golfer" or a "Wanttobe A Pro Willie." The course is lined with tall pines, mostly flat, fairly open, and there are not many hazards to frustrate the average golfer. The front nine doesn't have a lot of character as most holes are perfectly straight and not real challenging. The back nine is more interesting with some sharp doglegs and it requires more strategy and good club selection. Overall, Kingwood Cove is a little dated, in above average condition, and an excellent value. If you're looking to get out, have a good round, and not challenge your mental or physical game, you will enjoy Kingwood Cove.

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.
