Great layout for a short course (just 6610 yds from the tips. Was worried about pace of play but it was unwarranted. We finished in 4 hours flat, and it was busy. As with a majority of North Texas courses they did not have cart service, on a 100 degree day with 79% humidity. Seriously! I played in Colorado last week and every course had cart service XL (one cart for each 9). If LAGC would address that issue I'd rate the course much higher. Same goes for all other north Texas courses that have cart service issues.

I played with 2 buddies of mine on July 15, 2017, we are just recreational golfers and love to have a good time and play golf but this course was super disappointing. Two major problems is first the layout of the course is on top of each other. Each hole is right next to each other the only thing separating them part is about 25 yards of "rough" which therefore makes the fairway pretty narrow. Secondly, the greens are the worst I've been this year by far. Weeds absolutely everywhere, making the ball jump pretty high and inconsistent. The only bright spot the back 9 was a little better on greens and layout.

Considering I got to play for free it was fun. I don't know what the average price is to play here but I know I wouldn't pay it. Played with a group of 7 and our tee time was fairly early but the pace of play was still slow. Greens, fairways, and bunkers were all in good condition. The course layout though was awful. They have crammed 18 holes all on top of one another. Other people on the course were very rude. And there is no driving range. The Marshals got onto our group for pace of play when it was the twosome in front of us that was taking forever. Also there was construction going on all around the course. I wouldn't play again but hey you may enjoy it.

The course is way to narrow between holes. Constantly would loose balls or shoot into another fairway, had others peoples balls coming from everywhere. Greens were well kept, course very crowed play very slow. For the money I would look elsewhere.

The course is in good shape when you look at the up and down weather so far this year. Greens were very true to reacting to the read, and speed was very consistent through all 18 holes.

Most of the time I play by myself, and I hope this course can be nicer to women who play by themselves... I don't mind being paired with other golfers, but sharing a cart with someone I don't know is uncomfortable... but I'm also not surprised that they always want you to share a cart.

For all woman golfers, if you don't like to share a cart with someone, don't book this course.

Lake Arlington is a fun course to play. Not that many trouble spots on the course, so you can shoot a good score if you hit it fairly straight. Fairways were dry and hard in places, and they had just arrieated the greens, so there was a lot of sand on them. Had a good time and will play it again.

Course and staff were great but when I arrived and asked for the 15% that was promised on Military Tee Times, I was told that was between me and Military Tee Times which didn't make sense to me. I chose not to be a jerk and demand it so I never got my 15% off- please work that out with your courses so it doesn't happen to others in the future.

Played LAGC in what is considered late spring...all the flowers and trees in bloom. Grass has been green and out of dormancy since late February EXCEPT at LAGC. The fairways were brown. Barely a blade of green grass on them. Looks like they havent been watered in a month. The rough is green and really considered pastureland instead of grass. The first cut around the greens were almost as short as the green itself..but actually was an 1/8" longer than fairway grass...not exactly plush. But the rough along the fairways could definitely be considered hard pan. This course is in terrible condition and i would barely pay $10 to play it. I have played it at least 20 times and it has never been as this bad as far as i can remember. The one good thing about the course as of right now is the greens. They are in fairly good shape and roll pretty smooth and true. Dont waste your money or time. For the price there are better options.
