Memorial Park Golf Course is known as one of the best municipal courses in the nation and is visited by more than 60,000 patrons each year. 18-hole (Public)
The Memorial Park Golf Course began in 1923 as a 9-hole sand green course built near the hospital at Camp Logan for use by convalescent soldiers. When the hospital closed, the course was opened to the public. In an ambitious effort to enhance parks across the city of Houston, the Parks and Recreation Department began construction to turn the 9-hole course into an illustrious 18-hole golf course.
Through the years, Memorial Park Golf Course hosted many famous golfers, such as Babe Didrikson Zaharias, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, and Jimmy Demaret. It was also the home of the Houston Open from 1951 to 1963.
The 600-acre course offers a lighted driving range, putting and chipping greens, a beautiful clubhouse facility, and a golf museum created from the original clubhouse structure.
