Review of Ozona Country Club Golf Course
We were scheduled to play this 9 hole, 3026 yard, par 35 course during an overnight stay in Ozona, but we woke up to 35 degree weather and a forecast for rain. But we decided to head out there and check it out.
As we were driving up the road to the club house we came upon an older gentleman walking his dog and using a 7 iron as a walking stick. We stopped to ask him about the course and it turns out he is the current president of the Ozona Country Club! Very nice and funny gentleman who told us the course was in pretty rough shape because of the weather and membership had dropped to 50 members - "Ozona doesn't have a big golfing population."
The course was built in 1950, has 2 lakes, 2 bunkers guarding the greens, and most of the fairways are tree lined. There are 2 par 5s and 2 par 3s, and 5 par 4s. He stated "there's some trees in the way and the course can fool ya!" It's private but they do allow some public play for $15 a round. No golf carts are available but you might find a pull cart.
After enjoying a chat with him for 30 minutes we drove around to check out the course. The fairways are flat and tree lined and a tad tight and not in the best condition - as the President said "it's hard to find the money to water the greens with only 50 members!"
The greens at Ozona Country Club are flat and oval and a little below average condition.
Rates: $15.00 to $15.00
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.
