I would like to play it in the spring. I think it would bea much more pleasant experience. Nonetheless, nice course that provides a challenge but not overly difficult that high handicappers would not enjoy. Multiple course allow for different challenges a club selection. I wish it were on GolfNow more often

I played the Champions and Traditions courses. Both were in great shape the greens could have been in better shape. I guess you can't expect much better with the amount of play the courses are getting. I look forward to playing the other 9 hole...The Master's!

This has 27 holes. I love Champions and Traditions is ok but I don't like the Masters course. It's too hard for the average player. Problem is only 2 of the nines are open at anytime and you don't know which ones. I will call in advance and make sure which ones it is. I don't want to play Masters again. The rough was challenging also.

It's a challenging course and pretty popular. Greens were okay. Lots of pitch marks left unrepaired. Rough here is tougher than most and you will have a hard time finding your ball at times. It's thick and I had to club up to have a chance to get close to the green. Lots of water and trees that demand you keep it in the fairway. Pace was okay. Not the worst I've seen and marshalls were out helping. A single did pass our group which I found out they would let that happen on a busy day.

No cart service which makes no sense. Somebody lost out on a lot of tips Sunday. Water was available about every 3 holes which was great.

I'd play here again if I can get another GolfNow deal but glad I didn't pay full price given the conditions of the greens and lack of on course service.

Greens are mostly excellent. A little crabgrass creeping into several greens, but overall great bent grass greens, good fairways and tees. Unforgiving rough, but that's golf. Players are not raking traps.

Good value.

Nice track with sufficient challenges to keep you concentrating on what you choose to hit. The greens ran well at moderate speed but it looks like a lot of players don't fix their ball marks. One of the better courses in this price range.

This is one of the better or the best public course in Dallas. the fairways are always in great shape and so are the greens. This course is not for the beginner. it has many challenges such as bunkers and water. it does require good shot making.
Just a couple of bad things about this course, slow play and a lot of people ( locales ) consider this their private course, but it is not, it is a public course, in fact it is the best of 3 courses that Freewheel offers. Has a good driving range and GPS on the carts with a club washer. The price for this course is very reasonable, if your over 60 the price is very good. If you like to play golf on a great public course, this is the place for you.
