Lake Arlington is a classic old course which requires you to hit fades and draws off the tee. Most of the fairways are narrow, lined with trees on both sides and favor a high ball hitter. The greens are in excellent shape and they roll very true. The greens are the best in Arlington.

Course is pretty wide open. Greens are in great shape for early spring. Fairways are still a little hard but overall a good day of golf.

Didn't realize I'd played before until I arrived at course. Better than average overall with some great holes and exceptional greens. I'd play again since easy to score well if you manage a few very challenging holes...

Course was in great condition. Greens are the best I've ever seen for this course. Maybe because Ditto is closed.

I enjoy playing Lake Arlington. I would consider this to be my home course because I live close by. This course makes me think about every shot and I use every club in my bag. The greens were challenging to read and made me think.

I grew up playing Lake Arlington Golf Course and Meadowbrook in Fort Worth. These courses haven't changed over the years and stay classically fun. Lake Arlington's front nine is very walkable, perfect for beginners and is just fun to play. The back nine is one of the better tests of golf in the area. The tee box view from No. 14 is one of the best in the metroplex. Conditions at Lake Arlington are very good....they do get a lot of play and will get more while Ditto is being redone by the City of Arlington. The amenities could be better, but the porch is nice. Staff is not particularly friendly to Golf Now clients, but as long as they take the reservations, I'll keep making them!

Decided not to play due to the fact that even though there was no one on the course, pro shop was going to have me share a cart with someone I didn't know. Was going to charge me for my own cart since I had the discounted rate. Didn't think that was right. Won't be back.

Haven't played in a while. Though waiting on most tee boxes still finished in four hours on a Sunday morning round. Challenged to use most of the clubs in my bag. Overall a good experience.

This course has some very tight fairways were accuracy is paramount. There are no bunkers on the course, however there are "nature areas" that play as a lateral hazard if hit into. The greens are in very good shape and extremely fast. It was fairly busy but there was a marshal to keep the slower groups in check. The round took just over 4 hours. Only negative is, we only saw the beverage cart once (on 2nd hole). This time of year in Texas, having a beverage cart on the course is a must. Will play here again.

This was my first time playing lake Arlington golf course and I was pleasantly surprised. I arrived and had no issues with the golf now booking and I was teeing off at the exact time I was supposed to. The course itself is very nice however there are no bunkers and with the two weeks of rain there were random puddles in almost every fairway. It could have been worse so I'm sure the draining is better than most in the area. One small complaint I would have would be that but some of the tee boxes are not level and not every fairway has easily identifiable yardage markers. The grill inside the pro shop didn't have any sandwiches ready at the turn but took my order and delivered it to me on the 11th hole. I would definitely play this course again and recommend it to a friend.
