  1. Does anyone know exactly how long the memorial park track is?
  2. FYI, I took the family to Hermann Park Saturday morning. What a gem this park is!! The renovations to the reflection pool and McGovern Lake are fantastic. There have also been a lot of reforestation projects undertaken that will pay dividends in a few years. We should be proud of Hermann. . . it's a great urban park. Do yourself a favor and spend a couple of hours there soon. It is a good stress reliever. . .
  3. does anyone think Houston will ever get a legit botanical gardens? the ones in San Antonio are very nice and it would be a great addition to things to do/see around town. i know there are some smaller gardens, but why dont we have a full fledged botanical garden like many major cities?
  4. Although I do not live in the East End I have worked in the area for many years. I work very close to the Golf Course and it is something I look forward to seeing each day. The history of Gus Wortham G.C. in itself should declare it a landmark. It is, imo a treasure of the city. Unfortuately, the city has not kept it up very well and a movement in the East End has begun to save it. Below is a wonderful editorial by attorney Walter Boyd. A committee is being formed called Friends of Gus Wortham that will do whatever it needs to to raise funds, clean it and hopefully perserve the entire course f
  5. Bryan golf course repairs OK'd Council drops feasibility study By APRIL AVISON Eagle Staff Writer The Bryan City Council voted Tuesday to upgrade the Municipal Golf Course, scrapping plans for a feasibility study that would have examined other possible uses for the land. Councilman Jason Bienski cast the only vote against the renovations, which officials say could cost more than $4 million. Councilman Paul Madison did not attend the Tuesday evening meeting. City leaders had contemplated a feasibility study, saying they wanted to ensure the Villa Maria Road property was being best used for the
  6. French Quarter Plans $100M for Resort Redo By Amy Wolff Sorter 600 Del Lago Blvd.LAKE CONROE, TX-A 174-acre vacant resort will have a second life with help from its new owner, Atlanta-based French Quarter Group. The buyer plans to invest more than $100 million into the Del Lago Resort & Conference Center, its first property in Texas. http://www.globest.com/news/938_938/houston/161872-1.html
  7. Doing of my "look at something in Google Earth and discover something else" excursions that I do on a far too regular basis, I found what appeared to be a golf course just east of the Sears store there. It was roughly bordered by North Shepherd (west), the railroad (south), Crosstimbers/Westcross (north), and the homes west of Yale (east). By the late 1970s it was demolished for a series of warehouses with railroad spurs, which it is today, though the spurs are not active anymore. Does anyone know what this golf course was? I tried to do searches on it to no avail.
  8. In a Tidelands thread there is a list of businesses on Main St in 1969, and Houston Golf Center is listed at 7710 Main between Braeswood and Kirby. Is that what you were referring to? Where were other miniature golf courses in Houston? For me these rank up there with snake farms and dinosaur parks as great roadside attractions.
  9. The property that the current Fairfield Golf Center (driving range) in Cypress sits on has been sold. Does anyone know to whom and what is being built there? I have heard Sam's Club and Methodist Hospital but the land doesn't seem to be big enough for either.
  10. I hear they are going to open two in Houston... one of which will likely be behind the Marquee on I10 and Silber. Excellent if true.
  11. Is this the highest and best use of this park land? My rough outline of the course and club house is about 125 acres. Note: Topic title should be "COURSE" obviously. "Coarse" is jargon in my field... Can someone correct the title?
  12. Just learned that area stalwart, 53-year old Treeline Golf Course will be closing on June 16th. It will be re-developed into a residential neigborhood. No word as to what will become of Dillas. http://www.hcnonline.com/site/news.cfm?BRD...2&PAG=461&rfi=9
  13. My link really cool, i've been to the one in Dallas, been waiting for one for years Coming at I-10 and Memorial Brook Drive. Just west of Hwy 6 on I-10 Uploaded with ImageShack.us
  14. I am curious to know if there are any other old golf courses that were "around" the loop that have vanished.
  15. Anyone know if they have plans to build one? This google aerial image kind of looks like it. For those who drive on Kuykendahl on a regular basis, I'm sure you've seen Timmaron signs and construction going on. I wonder if this is part of it? It looks like about "18 fairways" but then again, they don't look like they're connected very well. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source...mp;t=h&z=15
  16. I really like the idea of living in a house backing onto a golf course. Although I am sure you can point out lots of disadvantages The things is we don't play golf. Never have and probably never will. So is it worth buying a golf course home? Do you have to like golf? I am assuming you pay extra in HOA fees etc for the priviledge? And if we lived in one would we feel the odd ones out among the neighbors?
  17. This is what the island has been waiting to hear about - this item appeared in the sports pages today. The presentation is on the city council agenda today, but this has HUGE potential for the island! Big changes ahead for isle golf course By Joshua Buckley The Daily News Published January 11, 2007 GALVESTON — The final plans for Galveston Municipal Golf Course’s $14.1 million makeover have been revealed. Among the changes detailed by the master plan are reversing the first five holes, a new irrigation and drainage system and re-grassing the entire course. [Edited by editor. Please do not p

  19. Golf Course/Country club on Bissonnet near Dairy Ashford ? The other day I drove down Bissonnet from highway 6 to beltway 8 and I passed a Golf Course/Country club on the north side of Bissonnet. For those of you who havent been down Bissonnet recently, its had a lot of bland strip shopping centers developed, that are all primarily Vietnamese/Chinese/Hispanic business's. Im pretty amazed at there being a golf course in this area, and it seems like it was built way before these strip shopping centers were built, and before the area was really developed. It reminds me of the Golf Course on Bell
  20. Does anyone have experience with the golf/country clubs in the area? Our neighborhood is associated with Meadow Brook Farms Golf Club, but while we love the course we wished it had more non-golf facilities and services. We have friends that like Pecan Grove (Sugar Land area) but wanted to get other opinions...

  22. I just found this thread about Sharpstown and thought I'd post a link to a post I made in the Historic Houston board: http://www.houstonarchitecture.info/haif/i...indpost&p=71649 I used to know this area intimately (lived at Bellaire & Waldo, I believe the address was 8200 Bellaire). I saw someone's comment that they'd have to drive around the area to help remember where everything was. Man, I feel the same way! I do remember that just west of Sharpstown Country Club there was a grocery store (can't remember which one). That grocery store was at the back of the parking lot and at t
  23. Does anyone remember this place and what it was called. I remember as a kid seeing this on the way to the Galleria, on the south side of Westheimer.
  24. From the March 14, 2005 print edition Dallas buyer bags seven golf courses Jennifer Dawson Houston Business Journal Seven high-profile Houston golf courses have a new Dallas owner due to a divestiture in Texas by a California company. An affiliate of Dallas-based Arnold Palmer Golf Management paid an estimated $107 million for the local links and nine other courses across the state -- six in Dallas, two in San Antonio and one in Austin. Seller of the 16 properties on Feb. 28 was American Golf Corp. of Santa Monica, Calif. The local golf courses include Bear Creek Golf World, Longwood Golf C
