Though several holes still are under repair, it is enough for fun. Lots of water/creek requires smart play. Overall very good course.

Course layout was ok. Probably some of the best greens I have played in Dallas, but unfortunately there wasn't much grass everywhere else. For $25 you can't expect much

Needs improvement on the fairways. Great staff really helpful and friendly. I'm sure the course is ready to close probably why the condition wasn't so great. Very fun course to play though. I hope you guys give it the attention it deserves to make it a beautiful course. Lots of potential.

Highly recommend this track.<br/> The fairways are tight and not always a driver. The greens are smallish but very readable, less break that one thinks new players.<br/> For first time players you would need to play with a local as there's quite a few hidden hazards of the tee boxes.

Go play this course, great value for the money

We played on a 100 degree day but the course kept us filled with cold water. Even with the hot summer, the tee boxes were nice the the greens were great. I will play again soon.

Will keep playing as long as it stays in the current condition. Roughs were nice....slight penalty for missing fairway but not brutal. Fairways and greens were very good. Many bunkers were being worked on...which for me is fine...got a free drop as they were not playable...LOL. Overall, a vrey good deal.

It is easy to see how this course used to be grand, but not any more. The greens were, for the most part, in pretty good shape, but very grainy. Fairways had several really brown spots with extremely thin grass. The water hazards have a lot of trash. Some of the tees are missing the markers for the hole's layout. Some of the tee boxes are a little chewed up. The buildings are in need of some basic maintenance, and there are places where the cart paths are extremely rough. Local knowledge of where to hit the ball off the tee, and your second shot on par five's is important. Also, being very clear on how far you hit your driver in the air is gonna save you some heart-ache. Water, waste areas, and ditches come into play pretty often. There are lots of mature trees and some narrow fairways, so straight is better than long on most holes. When this course has some time to recover, I think it may be worth the drive from Garland, but not now.

You can tell that this used to be a really nice course. Not any more. You can also tell that with more time and effort, this place can be grand again. Several tee-boxes need repairs, markers for the holes are sometimes missing. Sand traps in poor condition, fair ways pretty good and the greens weren't bad at all. Local the bridges have their side rails removed. Lots of extremely dry spots in the fairways. Cart paths are really suffering in some spots. Ya gotta not only hit it straight, but also be clear on where the water is and how far you hit your drives in the air. So, positioning off the tee is critical. Some of the greens, most, are pretty small, compared with other area courses.

This was our first time out this course. We have played many courses in the DFW area, and this course is not worth the green fee. Wide open course, greens were good, lost a ball in the middle of the fairway, sand traps were basically concrete. Not worth the money.

Fun and challenging course. Beautiful trees for shade and the occasional hazard. The small creeks running all through the course add a degree of difficulty, as well as the elevation changes of the greens.
