clubs in Houston. Keith Foster was selected to redesign the golf course into a
traditional parkland style, utilizing the natural beauty of the land and
existing trees to form a challenging golf course that would stand the test of
time. Keith's design incorporated the natural ravine, and existing trees while
enhancing the gentle role of the land. The holes were reoriented inward to
strengthen the perimeter creating an "Eden like setting". Along with
reconstruction of the golf course, the clubhouse and maintenance facilities

The new design features a blend of different styled holes both in length and
character making each hole unique and memorable. Players can chose from one of
six sets of tees playing to an overall length of 7,175 yards. Keith was also
charged to create a world-class practice facility for members to practice and
better their skills before they hit the golf course.
The club recently completed renovations to the golf course including
resurfacing and recapturing original specs on the greens, reconstructed bunkers
and resurfaced and leveled tees.
