Your Fort Bend News and Golf Course Architecture publications.
Sugar Creek Country Club made its legendary debut in 1972 as one of Houston’s premier member owned country clubs. At that time, the Club was established as a member owned club in a class apart from the developer or privately owned country clubs where the interest of the members are secondary to the interests of the owners. The club founders commissioned legendary golf course architect Robert Trent Jones to design and construct a championship golf course unparalleled in the region. When was asked if this course would be the best in Houston, Jones answered, "No!... but there will be none finer." His aim: "Challenge the most talented players, yet provide a course to be enjoyed by the member's family as well." This vision is reflected in the three nine-hole courses that were aptly named Robert, Trent and Jones.
Still today, Sugar Creek Country Club boasts the area's finest amenities and upholds the same founding principles established in 1972. Traditional country club amenities include the Jones designed 27-hole golf course, golf practice facilities, 8 lighted tennis courts, a family style pool and fitness center. The stately Georgian-style Clubhouse provides casual and upscale dining, a full service bar, Men's and Ladies' Locker Rooms along with an elegant ballroom and meeting facilities.
And now, Sugar Creek Country Club is only getting better with the official completion of Phase 1.... a $4 million renovation of the golf course and club amenities. The highly anticipated golf course renovation began with the Trent Course in 2013 followed by the Jones Course that opened in early 2015. Renovations to our third course began in the spring of 2016 and wrapped up in May of 2017 with our Robert Nine Grand Opening. The integrity of the original golf course design was kept, however significant improvements to the golf courses include new Southern Cross Bermuda on tees and fairways, Champion Bermuda greens, brand new bunkers, course contouring, new and enhanced water features and short tees on all three Nines. The renovation of our Driving Range was also completed this summer and re-opened to rave reviews in September.
In addition to the golf course improvements, an expansion and upgrade of the Clubhouse dining areas was recently completed and includes The Hickory Stick Bar & Grill, Hickory Stick Patio, Bistro 72 Dining Room, Snack Cafe and Men's and Ladies' Locker Rooms. The Pool renovation, which now includes Cabana Service, was completed in 2015!
Health and Wellness is the main focus of our $2 Million, Phase 2 Renovation beginning in early 2018 and will consist of improvements to the the fitness center and tennis facility.
