The Tribute is a great course. Wide undulating fairways, cut really short, which makes great conditions for your approach shots. Greens are fast and in great shape. This is a really fun course to play.

Had a great time playing The Tribute as it was challenging and in great shape. Had lunch before the round in the club house and the meal and service we good. The only complaint was that it was a FULL 5 hour round because of slow okey and how busy it was. I guess that is to be expected on a good course, so be prepared if you go on the weekend. I’d play it again!

The course was in great shape. The green are extremely fast, and roll true. You won't need your divot repair tool, as the new green will not stick. All shots have to be played short, as even your 60 degree wedge will release 5-10 feet. And on these greens it could result in a one put turning into a three or four putt.

This was my first time to play The Tribute since the new Bermuda greens went in. They're outstanding! I'm glad to see that so many courses are finally figuring out that Bent Grass greens just aren't a great idea in Texas. I was surprised to find the greens as firm and fast as they were, only a few weeks after the course re-opened. Play it soon - before the Bermuda goes dormant.

That blaring cocophony, which someone thought was music was the only poor thing about the experience. Music can destroy ambience.If you feel the need to blare something out over the speakers at least make something other than screaming noise. It is destroying one of the great golf experiences I have always looked forward to for many years.

Course is in great condition and it's really fun. HOWEVER, There is no marshal and the pace of play was the worst I have ever seen. I didn't even get to finish my round because it got dark. If I had finished it would have taken 6 hours maybe more. Will not pay to play at this course again. Would not recommend to avid golfers, I only saw beginners.

The greens and course where in very good shape. Greens are firm but with good maintenance will become much improved over time. What was very disappointing was to pay $139 with little to no service. We played on a hot day during the heat of the day and they had only one cart girl for the entire course. We only saw her twice during a five hour round of golf. No Marshals were present and we saw the General Manager one time who drew the wrong conclusion for slow play. We had two three -somes in our group and constantly waited on a foursome the entire day. They were part of a larger group. On the tenth hole we let them get some distance because quite frankly we were tired of waiting on them. The General Manager showed up with an attitude and after a heated discussion we did not see him for the entire back nine. This is one of my favorite courses in the Dallas Metro-plex but many time during the round I almost said to myself that I will not be back. It was definitley a screw job on the expense/customer service did not warrant that kind of fee. It will be sometime before I decide to come back. Other courses are a better value at 1/4 of the cost in Dallas.

Had a tee time for 3:30PM assuming 4.5 hours would be plenty of time to get 18 in....I was wrong. After over 4 hours we only got through 14 holes. Course was in good shape and would have been a good time if we weren’t constantly waiting. One of the staff members informed me they cut the spacing down to 7 Mins in the afternoon so don’t book a tee time after noon.

Played as a twosome on Saturday with a late morning tee time. I have always enjoyed the track and its homage to Scottish golf holes and was excited to see the conversion to Bermuda hybrid on the greens. The greens were in great shape and rolled nicely.

The simulated fescue rough was quite thick so bring extra balls. To be fair it takes a real miss to lose a ball.

Would like to see a more frequent cart service for a high end course.

Very much like the conversion of the pro shop into a golf course facing 19th hole. Bar service was excellent.

The Tribute is an absolutely amazing place to play. Faster play needs addressing but the views-layout makeup for the slow pace. I highly recommend the course to anyone looking for a links style to play.

Course just reopened so the amount of play is high. The new greens installed are really good and the rates are a great value. I love playing a course that's on a lake and not a home in sight. Play this course and you'll love it.

Was very very excited to get to the tribute after the green renovations and the work they put into the course ... and the course did not fail to impress ... the pace of play and dealing with telling the golf shop via phone call and then talking with the Marshall was a whole other story. We were a three some and had to finally jump a hole and miss out on a hole just to be able to finish at a decent time ... when we tried to discuss the situation we were discounted and told "I talked with them " ... this is not a way that you should handle a $100 good course ... marshalls are there to control pace move people and keep pace up ..this is not a muni this is a serious course ... just upsetting cause I thought they up'd their game .. I guess not ... so ... disappointed ... very very much
