Chet Williams Signature Championship Golf Course
Our championship golf course, designed by Chet Williams, challenges the very best players while, at the same time, offering a fun course for golfers of all skill levels. Williams’ design incorporates plenty of intricate movements, including fairways, roughs, and greens. Under Chet's direction, we began the 17 month journey of creating a golf course that will surely rise to the top tier of courses in Texas.
According to designer Chet Williams:“With the great piece of property, we incorporated some very interesting and intricate movement throughout the course including the fairways, roughs, greens, and surrounds. We tried to keep the earthwork to a minimum to leave the property in the most natural state as we were provided.One thing that will make this course unique in the Houston area is the great variety of lies golfers will face. The most defining element of the course, however, is an abundance of large oak trees that the course winds among. Many of these trees are over 200 years old and hence the name Houston Oaks. There are no holes that are remotely the same, and most importantly I think the course will be great fun to play.I am very proud of this golf course and am looking forward to great things for Houston Oaks in the future.”.
The Family Nine
The combination of beauty and simplicity make this area perfect for beginners, families, and even the most seasoned veteran golfers. The Family Nine course at The Clubs at Houston Oaks consists of seven Par 3’s and two Par 4’s, varying in length from 114 to 384 yards. This course is perfectly designed for practicing your drives, chip-shots and putting without worrying about the pace of play. The holes wind through centuries-old oaks with four holes bordering our lakes. The play is relaxed and comfortable with many golfers stopping here and there to cast for bass between hitting golf shots. Simply enjoying the beauty of the old oaks and casual environment is reason enough to play this course
