This Course has 3 sets of 9 holes: Masters, Champion and Tradition. This review is for Champion and Tradition. The Champion course is fairly straight forward with its placement of bunkers and water hazards. The greens and fairways are currently in great shape. The Tradition has houses on almost every hole. For the most part they are back far enough that it should not make a difference. Placement of shots is key on this 9. Number 7 has a blind second shot as well as number 9 having and elevated green over water. Again the greens and fairways are in great shape. Will play here again.

This course is in great shape. The GREENS ARE EXCELLENT.

With so many DFW golf courses with terrible greens that should be shut down, it was great to play a real golf course.

Will definitely return.

This is a very nice golf course. The layout is good the greens were very good. The lies are very tight though so you need to be ready to play with tight lies. The sand was very soft which made sense shots very inconsistent. It is a tough course to play the first time but with a little course knowledge

Play this course quiet often but today was a joke. Greens were like putting on a beach and fairways had very little grass. Guy blowing sand went by on Gator and blew grass all over my wife that was sitting in cart. If they are not going to take care of course then they need to go down on green fees.

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.
