Client Course Description

This Rees Jones layout holds to the themes of a number of highly regarded old style courses: clarity of target, subtle challenges, artistic bunkering, variety in shape and length of holes, ample fairways with smallish greens, in a very natural setting. Because of Mr. Jones work, Shadow Hawk was recognized in 2000, its first full year of operation, by Golf Digest Magazine as one of the top ten best new private courses in America.

Designer Notes

The site for Shadow Hawk Golf Club is unique for the Houston area. The holes are framed by mature pecan trees and incorporate a natural oxbow lake. The course has the look of a classic design that has been there for years.
