“Designed by architect Roger Packard, Sweetwater opened its first 9 holes in late 1982. Host to the LPGA Hall of Fame Golf Classic in July 1984 & 85.

Sweetwater Country Club now lives on as a formidable test in golf for the firmly established family community culture of Sugar Land. Two courses (Pecan & Cypress) continue to offer a diverse challenge to golfers of all levels. On Pecan, players will experience lengthy holes of relatively open play, susceptible to ever present Texas winds and at a turn begin winding through majestic pecan groves with the tranquility of aged Spanish moss. Those who would rather play a shorter test are constantly challenged by the emphasis of position over length to avoid the water hazards, strategic bunkers and uneven lies of the Cypress course.”

Sugar Creek

 “Sugar Creek Country Club’s 27 hole golf course features a traditional layout and is one of the best in the Houston area. Established in 1972, this course puts a premium on shot placement off the tees. There are opportunities for long hitters to cut off yardage but not without the risk of posting a big number. Sugar Creek Country Club is a true shot makers course with a good mix of bunkered greens and water hazards that will keep every golfer on their toes.”

Houstonian/Shadow Hawk

“At the first light of day on October 30, 1999, the Honorable George H. W. Bush, 41st President of the United States, hit a drive straight and true down the middle of the first hole to commence the first round played at Shadow Hawk Golf Club, eighteen holes designed by preeminent architect Rees Jones on two hundred and forty acres of property winding through old Pecan trees and several large lakes. This land in Richmond, Texas, which is approximately twenty-five miles southwest of downtown Houston, was chosen because of its native character. The vision, several years in the making, is a straightforward concept: create and operate a small stand alone private golf club offering a rare golf experience: a peaceful refuge from the city, but still close by, where one can quietly entertain friends, be with family, or just get away to enjoy a more reserved environment than that of a fast paced town. Shadow Hawk’s distinguished membership is capped at 325 total members. Accessibility to the course, even on Saturday mornings, is a given and rounds of four hours are considered too slow by most members even by those who walk with a caddie or carry their own clubs. A service minded staff is at the ready, and the clubhouse space comfortably fits the understated yet elegant feel of the Club. 

Shadow Hawk’s property is an immaculately maintained natural setting. In keeping with the owners’ and Mr. Jones’s mutual respect for the tradition of the game, the course design is a throw-back to old style architecture with small greens slightly elevated and a very well defined presentation of where to play, although many of the challenges are subtle and appreciated more over time after multiple rounds. Along with generous landing areas off the tee and a variety of tee and hole locations, the course has proven to be a very enjoyable member’s course in that it retains a freshness for the repeat player. And, although University of Houston junior Andy Sanders set the course record of 62 strokes in 2000 on his way to picking up one of two berths in sectional qualifying for the USGA’s United States Open Championship at Pebble Beach, the course has held its own as a test for the expert player when it is set up for that challenge. Those tests have come most notably during the three other sectional qualifying events for the U.S. Open Championship held at the club in 2002, 2004, and 2008 as well as during the 2005 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship played at Shadow Hawk. The Club was recently selected by the United States Golf Association to host the U.S. Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship in 2011. As Shadow Hawk closes in on ten years of operation, the Club strives to maintain and refine its founding concepts to offer its Members and their Guests a rare golf experience on a daily basis.”

Quail Valley

“Spread across 400 acres and 36 holes is Quail Valley Golf Course, located in Missouri City, Texas. Our course ranks among the finest in Houston golf, a short drive southwest of the city. Designers intended Quail Valley to be a country club before Missouri City acquired it, enabling the course to offer Houston golf enthusiasts an exclusive feel at an accessible price.

But don’t play and leave. Stick around and enjoy our redesigned Bluebonnet Grille at the 37th Hole, serving our famous seafood and sandwich plates. Unwind with your favorite drink from our bar as you enjoy the Quail Valley atmosphere with your friends. We’d love to show you our amenities at our affordable prices.”

Real estate agents don’t “just” sell houses; we sell a SERVICE to guide home buyers and sellers through the entire real estate transaction, which usually takes several months. We are more like real estate consultants than we are salespeople. That’s probably why 86 percent of all home buyers and sellers choose to hire a real estate agent when buying or selling a home!

Buying or selling a home is not like buying or selling a TV, a computer, or a car. You can’t buy/sell a home in one day…even if the buyer is paying cash. There are MANY legal aspects, deadlines, and requirements that most people are not trained to handle. What’s more…mistakes along the way can cost you thousands and even hundreds of thousands of dollars. The financial risk is much greater than just about anything else you may buy.

That’s why you need your own dedicated, experienced real estate agent
looking out for YOUR best interests.
