This club offers three nine hole courses that can be played in three eighteen hole combinations. The Bridges Course is the newest nine hole design, offering fast, undulating Floradwarf greens and fairly wide fairways. The layout of this course creates a multitude of situations where golfers must decide on whether to play in a risky manner or to make conservative, safer shots. One of the best holes on the Bridges Course is #3, a 427-yard, par 4, featuring a three-level fairway that hides the green from the first level, the water hazard protecting the green on the second level, and then finally allows golfers to see the entire layout of the hole's finish from the third level. The Creek Course is not as long as the Bridges, but it is narrower and has more water coming into play. The signature hole on the Creek is #8, a 208-yard, par 3, incorporating an elevated tee box, a creek that runs along the right side and a green with a ridge in the middle and sand bunkers protecting the right and left sides. The Bunkers Course lives up to its name by including many sand hazards into the design. Hole #1, a 417-yard, par 4, is considered the toughest starting hole in Texas. The tee shot must avoid a large sand bunker without carrying over the bunker because this will put the ball in a lake. Even if the tee shot stays away from these initial hazards, the second shot must still be carried 175 to 200 yards over water. The club hosted the Independent Insurance Agents Junior Classic in 1999, which is an invitational tournament for the top 180 junior golfers in the nation. Past participants have included many well known tour professionals, such as Tiger Woods.
