Golf Course On Almeda Rd. At Old Spanish Trl.


Recommended Posts

Waaay back.... in the late 40's, early 50's, I played at one near downtown, on Fannin, near a Prince's Drive-In that was close to Gray. I think there were two courses there.

Another was on Almeda just across from the riding stables at Hermann Park. Still another on W. Alabama, a couple of blocks east of Shepherd, that was across the street from what is now referred to as the Alabama Ice House.

Edit: A 1967 Houston/Bellaire map lists the Golf Course near the Veterans Hospital off Old Spanish Trail . and Almeda Road.

  • The title was changed to Golf Course On Almeda Rd. At Old Spanish Trl.
  • 7 months later...

I was reading the newspaper The Bellaire Texan dated February 27, 1957 and came across an article featuring the golf course.

The Sharpstown Women’s Golf Association is co-operating with other women’s golf groups of the Houston area and with the Swing Club (a division of United Volunteers Services) in a drive to build a nine hole Pitch and Putt Golf Course at the Veterans Administration hospital in Houston at Holcombe and Almeda.

Physical therapist state that such a course would be extremely helpful to veterans recuperating in the hospital, providing exercise and development of manual skills. To provide funds for the constriction of this golf course, women golfers of the Houston area are conducting a sale of tickets for a prize drawing, with all proceeds going to the Veterans’ course.

On March 2, Mrs. Libby Allen and Mrs. C.D. Combs, representing the Sharpstown Women’s Golf Association, will appear at the golf links of the Sharpstown Country Club from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to sell tickets at $1.00 apiece. Drawing for the prizes will be held on April 30.  
First prize will be a Cushman electric golf buggy valued at $1,000.
