The Tournament course is a former Shell Houston Open venue and this Robert von Haage and Bruce Devlin-designed layout was the first of the four 18-hole courses to appear at The Woodlands Country Club in 1978.
The most striking thing about the Woodlands Tournament course to me are some of the green complexes. The 11th has one of the most fun greens I've ever played, with a massive knob right in the center that gives the approach shot in a lot of character. The 14th green has a good one as well; one that can produce possible holes in one when the hole is cut up front. I found that out personally, when I saw my ball taking the slope and looking like it had potential to go in, but ultimately I "settled" for birdie.
With only one or two exceptions for each, I think the holes featuring water are vastly superior to those that do not. Strategy and shot values are much more at stake with water in play here. Those that are dry are mostly straight out in front of you and don't require a great amount of thought; grip and rip kind of holes, mostly. 17 and 18 are two great finishing holes (water comes into play on both, for what it's worth) that can produce a wide variety of outcomes. Really good to settle a professional event, which has been showcased at the Insperity for the Champions Tour, and possibly the PGA Tour's Houston Open down the road.
