Built in 1992, Delaware Springs is no stranger to recognition. Since 2014, the course has been listed as one of the top 25 courses in Texas eight times. In 2015, the course was also recognized as the No. 2 value course in the country.

Delaware Springs reviewers noted its difficult greens and vexing sand traps as favorite attributes.

More than 400 positive reviews contributed to Hidden Falls Golf Course's first-ever top 25 spot on the Golfer's Choice list. Built in 1973, it was named the No. 11 friendliest golf course in the country by Golf Advisor in 2014.

Reviewers highlighted Hidden Falls' water hazards and forced carries as welcome challenges. In its course profile, the club is described as a great place for locals, seniors, and beginners.

To compile the list, GolfPass analyzed 257 courses in the state along with over 14,000 reviews submitted by Texas golfers throughout the year. Subcategories, including value, conditions, layout, pace of play, staff friendliness, and off-course amenities, were also considered.
