Review and Rating of Shary Municipal Golf Course - holes 10 to18
Owned and operated by the City of Mission, Shary Municipal Golf Course is home to 27 holes. Each of the nines is a little different from the others, for example:
Shary Municipal Golf Courses holes 10 to 18 is a par 36 with 4 tee boxes and yardages ranging from 2556 yards to 3194 yards. It's short but requires some shot making on some of the six dog legs which are both left and right. If you can keep the ball in the fairway, manage the dog legs, and play smart you'll have a very enjoyable and relaxing round.
Some of our favorite holes include:
When we played in January, the Shary Municipal Golf Course greens were in very good condition, soft and held the ball well, and ran true. They were a variety of sizes and shapes and have some combination of slope and minor contour. Several have some mounding and bunkers guarding them.
The fairways were in fair shape as was the rough, which was cut thin and very playable. The fairways are tree and palm lined (one is lined by some nice homes with back yards that can come into play) and most of them are wide to ample - spray the ball and you're OB or in another fairway with a recoverable shot.
The Shary Municipal Golf Course bunkers were in very poor condition - little to no sand (firm dirt) and overgrown wtih weeds and grass along the edges. They are all in the process of being redone, which started in January 2015. The lips range from thin to 6 to 12" and you find a variety of sizes and shapes.
Slope and rating are based on playing holes 1 through 18.
Bottom line - this is a nine that is fair and playable for all levels, a little short, and includes some holes that will test your shot making.
Rates: $16.00 to $23.00
The pro shop is pretty well stocked with all of the basics. The grill serves burgers, dogs, and more. The range and putting green are ok. Service is friendy
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.
