One of the best golf courses in the nation. Greens and fairways well-maintained. Challenging, but worth the green fee!

This course was designed for the collegate golf team at Texas Tech. It has many sandtraps and few level spots. The prevailing West Texas wind makes a challange for all golfers. One of the best courses in West Texas.

The Rawls is a top notch college course which although advertised as for everyone is not for beginners or those who have trouble with bunkers and mobility. In excellent shape now that under non university management.
