Who we are - Lochinvar Golf Club is an exclusively private Jack Nicklaus Signature course that was established in 1980.  Located just north of Houston, Lochinvar GC was developed for the serious golfer that expects excellent consistent playing conditions every day.  We average 39 rounds per day and do not have tee times.  In 2014, Lochinvar Golf Club renovated the course with Jack Nicklaus, which included elimination of 70% of the bunkers, enhanced tee size and layout, lake expansions, and a couple of new green compounds.  Since July 2015 we close the course for one month following the July 4th holiday, this allows us to perform projects and all the necessary agronomic practices to keep our high standard of conditioning.  This July we completed adding liners and new sand to all bunkers, as well as installing 1.25 miles of drainage.  Our upcoming projects include:  more drainage, one acre turf nursery, perimeter screening/plantings, small irrigation design/installation, tee construction, and possible greens resurfacing in the next 3-5 years. Our turfgrass consists of Bermuda rough and fairways, Zeon Zoysia tees, and Champion Ultradwarf greens.  To view Lochinvar Golf Club click the link:   https://goo.gl/photos/ddyh9nMUSvfLBDeC9 .
