The Links of West Fork is just west of Conroe and along the banks of the San Jacinto River. The course was designed to take advantage of the wetlands, streams, and hills of the west fork of the San Jacinto River. Most of the holes are relatively flat, scenic, unique, and in most cases you’re able to see any potential trouble. But if you can’t hit the ball fairly straight, you will encounter the trees, waste and wetlands, strategically placed bunkers, and the small lake. Playing from the back tees can be intimidating as it requires a near perfect drive to carry a lot of the wetlands and hit the fairway.
When we played the fairways were in very good shape and the rough was cut short enough that if wasn’t that difficult to get a pretty good shot back to the fairway or green. The majority of the greens were in very good condition and a little fast – a few greens had recently suffered some damage due to recent weather conditions. The greens had minor slope, very little undulation, and seemed fair but required careful study before putting. Some greens were very small, well protected with bunkers or trees – requiring a precise iron shot.
Overall, this is a course you will enjoy and want to play again. It’s also a great value at full price, better at twilight, and even better with a coupon from their website or from GolfQ.com.
