Gus Wortham Park Golf Course is sited along Brays Bayou east of Downtown Houston. It has been an attraction for golfers since the early 1900’s, when it was built as the Houston Country Club. The course is now managed and maintained by City of Houston golf operations staff.

Gus Wortham provides challenging elevated tees and uphill carries to greens that make you use all your clubs. The course is relatively wide open, making it attractive for all levels of golfers. The front nine features three consecutive par five holes, two of which you may want to go for in two. Your shot-making skills will be tested on several of the "short but challenging" par fours. Playing to as much as 6400 yards, Gus Wortham is a fun course located only minutes from downtown.

A full driving range is available for practice or warming up. Additional practice areas include a putting green, chipping green, and practice bunker. The pro shop staff is available for lessons. Tee times are available on weekends and holidays. It offers a fully stocked pro shop and full snack bar. Gus Wortham is a non-metal spike facility.
