Houston Springs golf course is a 12 hole semi-private golf course located in Perry, Georgia.
Houston Springs Golf Course first opened for play in 2004 as a nine hole course but with land and plans for expansion to 18 holes. The initial nine holes were designed by Azinger Golf Design.
The golf course is surrounded by a nature preserve and wrapping around six lakes.
The front nine holes are wrapped around three ponds, 50 acres of nature preserve, and a scenic ridge. The play is challenging yet rewarding. On seven of the first nine holes you will primarily work on your irons and short game. Holes nine through twelve, however, open up for the long baller.
The newest holes ten, eleven, and twelve are wide open covering 25 acres of nicely rolling terrain. Holes 10-12 were designed by Mike Dasher. A well thought out 18-hole circuit has been designed to allow you to play the best six holes twice.
The course is open to the public but was built as an integral part of the residential community that bears its name.
In addition to the first twelve holes being in play, a Golf Club Pro Shop as well as the putting greens and practice facilities are available.

The biggest problem with this course is that the original 9 is more of a mini-me course with lots of little gimmicky 200 yard par 4's and silly par 3's. When they decided to finish up and make it a full 18 holes a couple of years back they did a great job on the newest 9. It is a full size and mostly well laid out group of 9 holes. The conditioning is good enough for the area though not as good as Houston Lake. My only complaint with the newest 9 is that after you finish up the first hole it is close to a quarter mile to get to the second hole. Other than that it is a lot of fun and always a challenge. The original 9 is basically a joke unless you are in the mood for weird quasi-executive style of golf course. This course is in a retirement community so once the early morning 4-somes roll through you will have the entire course to yourself. I have played the course several times (I live 2 miles away) and most of the time I'm the only person out there. They have a decent range and nice putting and chipping area.
