Fall Creek TX History

Golf has been a prominent feature in the Fall Creek area since the 1960s. El Dorado Country Club, with its 18-hole George Fazio-designed golf course, occupied the area from 1964 up until it closed in the early 1990s.

In 2002, the Redstone Golf Club opened on the site of El Dorado. Jacobsen-Hardy Golf Design was responsible for the course’s redesign. The original log-cabin style clubhouse was demolished and replaced with new clubhouse facilities and a restaurant. The club hosted the Shell Houston Open.

Escalante Golf of Fort Worth bought Redstone in 2013 and renamed it the Golf Club of Houston. Today, the club features two 18-hole courses: a private member course and a public tournament course. The Rees Jones-designed tournament course features a course rating of 75.8 and a slope rating of 138.

Fall Creek opened its doors in 2003, developed under Johnson Development Corp. and the Jefferson Development Company. Johnson Development is a well-known developer in the Bayou City, helming various projects like Cross Creek Ranch, Harmony, Riverstone, and Sienna Plantation. Jefferson Development, on the other hand, also has several communities in the Greater Houston area, including Firethorne, Coles Crossing, Bridge Mill (in Towne Lake), and Silverlake.

The master-planned golf course community was originally slated to feature around 1,400 homes. The developers added to the community’s original 800 acres and it now covers around 2,300 acres (with an expected 2,500 homes upon completion).

Fun Things To Do Near Fall Creek Houston

As one of the premier golf course communities in the Greater Houston area, Fall Creek’s main attraction is the Golf Club of Houston.

Previously called the Redstone Golf Club, the Golf Club of Houston is home to the Shell Houston Open, a PGA Tour event. The club features two 18-hole championship courses: the public Tournament course and the private Member Course.

The Tournament course, designed by Rees Jones, is a par 72 7,422-yard course. It has a course rating of 75.8 and a slope rating of 138. The members-only course, on the other hand, was redesigned by Jacobsen-Hardy Golf Design (par 72, 7,508-yard). Other club amenities include a 31,000-square foot practice range (with short game areas, fairways and bunkers, as well as a driving range), a 33,000-square foot clubhouse, and the Players Grill.

Fall Creek’s community amenities are just as luxurious. The Park at Fall Creek, a large recreation complex located along Fall Creek Bend, features an aquatic center with a Junior Olympic pool, a splashpad, a family pool, and water slides. Four lighted tennis courts and a playground are also within the complex.

The Fields at Fall Creek (or the Fall Creek Sports Complex) straddles Garners Bayou and features facilities for various outdoor activities and team play (baseball, soccer, sand/beach volleyball). The park also has a playground and a nature trail.
