|Deerwood Club -- Play it if you get the chance|
|Review by: Katy Kracker||When in good shape - and when isn't it? - this course is absolutely beautiful. Set amongst majestic pines, it is serene and peaceful... until you step back to the back tees. When you do, you had better be long and straight, although straight is by far the more important attribute to have - it's not uncommon to have the ball come back at you.
This is one of the finest tracks in the Houston area and probably my favorite of all of the Kingwood courses. It should be. It is the most expensive to join if memory serves correctly. The only private course I've played that is superior is Nicklaus' Carlton Woods. That course will make you want to go into debt! (Deerwood just makes you want to kiss up to a member.)
Great practice range and beautiful, old-school clubhouse will make you feel important if only for a few hours. After that, it's back to the land of swat-drink-wait.
