Big Easy Ranch: The Covey

Columbus, TX Private

Overview

Architect Chet Williams has already set the standard for golf in Texas with Whispering Pines, the state’s top-ranked course in Trinity, north of Houston. He’ll try to match that success with The Covey at Big Easy Ranch, set on a 2,000-acre section of land between Houston and Austin. Opened this summer, Big Easy Ranch is described as a sporting club as members have access to fishing, hunting, clay and other activities in addition to golf. The property is similar to what Williams worked with at Whispering Pines in the sense that it’s remote, unencumbered by buildings or development and possessed with a strong backdrop of pine and hardwoods, but the routing is tauter, continually turning direction with smaller, more formal bunkers and greens tucked beyond streams, ravines and lakes. Over 85-feet of elevation change also means that players will have to be on their game to calculate roll-out of the firm Zeon zoysia fairways.
