Westwood Golf Club

91st Texas - Best in Area

Westwood Golf Club’s 9-hole course was redesigned and a new nine added by Ralph Plummer in 1957, when holes were extended across the old Braes Bayou. Keith Foster then remodelled the 18-hole layout at the start of the new millennium.

Eagle Pointe

92nd Texas - Best in Area

The fairways at Eagle Pointe Golf Club are carved through the tall pines of Mont Belvieu, where the course weaves around Cherry Point Gully and the Old River. The final four holes are among the strongest in the Houston area.

93rd Texas - Best in Area

Formed in 1927, Midland Country Club moved to its present location in 1951, when Ralph Plummer designed a new course. The layout closed for a major renovation during 2016 so it may move up the future Texas rankings.

Horseshoe Bay (Apple Rock)

94th Texas - Best in Area

The Apple Rock course was the last of three Robert Trent Jones Senior designs to appear at the Horseshoe Bay Resort when it debuted in 1986, fifteen years after the old master’s first 18-layout opened for play here.
