Reviewing The Club at Carlton Woods' Fazio Course

During the latter part of 2005, Carlton Woods opened a second course at its club in The Woodlands. The Fazio Course joined the Nicklaus Course at Carlton Woods. Tom Kirkendall, proprietor of the Houston's Clear Thinkers blog, has an great review of the Fazio Course - complete with photos - on his site. Check it out here.

Here's a brief excerpt:

Constructed amid beautiful hardwoods on the bluffs of Spring Creek on the far southwest side of The Woodlands, the Fazio Course has something going for it that most Houston-area golf courses do not - significant elevation changes. ... the Fazio Course takes advantage of a wonderfully rolling piece of land on the bluffs of Spring Creek to provide golfers with up and down shot values that are rarely seen on Houston-area golf courses.


As with most new courses these days, the Fazio Course is long - almost 7360 yards from the championship tees and includes a 506 yard par 4 (no. 15) and a 623 yard par 5 (no. 4). However, this is not just a flogger's course -- three of the course's 10 par 4s are well under 400 yards, including the creative 307 yard par 4 seventh hole.
