Welcome to The Golf Club at Cinco Ranch
The 18-hole, par 71 golf course features a rolling layout that will challenge the low handicapper while still offering the average player or beginner the opportunity to play an enjoyable round of golf. That is thanks to a well conceived plan by the developers of Cinco Ranch and the masterful design of course architect Carlton Gibson.
The development company set aside ample room for the course, enabling Gibson to provide a wide variety of holes without squeezing them between out-of-bounds markers. In most cases, following the intended line of play takes OB completely out of play. Only three holes are marked by white stakes on both sides -- that, in itself, sets Cinco Ranch apart from most real estate-oriented courses.
Gibson's design features a surprising (and pleasing) amount of roll, with several holes home to elevation changes of as much as 15 feet. The elevation changes help ensure an interesting round of golf -- so do some 50 bunkers and water hazards that come into play on 16 holes.
The first class practice facility and driving range is complete with two enormous tees that are always open for practice from grass. The amenities include two giant, undulating practice greens for putting and chipping improvement as well as a short game area that offers a huge bunker, many shade trees, and provides lies of varying degrees.
