Gus Wortham Park Golf Course may be a muni, but to us it will always be our Country Club, the original Houston Country Club 1908! Wortham Park Friends, Inc. (formerly Friends of Gus Wortham, Inc.) is a 501(c) non-profit corporation dedicated to preserving and protecting 107-year old historic Gus Wortham Park Golf Course. All donations we collect will go strictly toward imminent repairs and restoration of Gus Wortham.
Here is some information about the “Jewel of the East End,” Gus Wortham Park Golf Course.
Gus Wortham Park golf course is situated along Brays Bayou in the south central area of Houston. The course is now managed and maintained by City of Houston golf operations staff, following many years of private management.
Gus Wortham provides challenges not regularly found in Houston. Elevated tees and uphill carries to greens make you use all your clubs. The course is relatively wide open, making it attractive for all levels of golfers. The front nine features three consecutive par five holes, two of which you may want to go for in two. Your shot- making skills will be tested on several of the “short but challenging” par fours. Playing to as much as 6400 yards, Gus Wortham is a fun course located only minutes from downtown.
Recent improvements include renovated bunkers and a new fleet of electric golf cars. A full driving range is available for practice or warming up. Additional practice areas include a putting green, chipping green, and practice bunker. The pro shop staff is available for lessons. Tee times are available on weekends and holidays.
The combination of friendly staff, high quality maintenance, inside the loop location and affordable prices make Gus Wortham well worth the price. Gus Wortham is a non-metal spike facility and has a fully stocked pro shop and full snack bar.
