Whispering Pines has been ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.
Whispering Pines may give away money -- half the members' dues are doled to charity, and owner Corby Robertson Jr. covers the rest of the club's expenses -- but it's not so generous with birdies. The nine-year-old layout outside of Houston stretches to 7,480 yards, and thanks to the work of Nicklaus Design's Chet Williams,it requires an arsenal of shots. The more daunting holes include the island-green, par-3 15th and the forested 499-yard, par-4 18th, where water edges the left side before curling in front of the three-tiered green.
