  • Tree-lined parklands course with narrow fairways and small greens
  • Only two par fives on the course and they are both difficult compared to tour average
  • Any type of golfer can contend here, but you generally have to be very good on and around the greens

What to Look For

  • Strokes gained approach
  • Proximity with wedges (100-150 yards)
  • Strokes gained around the green
  • Total driving
  • Strokes gained putting
  • Experience in Texas
