Tribute currently is in great shape. Greens a little fuzzy and slow. winds make course challenging and even more enjoyable. True test of links golf. Play it u won't regret it.

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.

Totally exceeded expectations. The most friendly staff from bag drop to the lady who meets you with the cold towel on 18 and offers to clean your clubs. The closest we will ever come to playing St. Andrews. Very challenging and enjoyable. We WILL be back....

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

I would normally recommend The Tribute, but, and it's a Big But, they ran a Seniors special for $29. A lot of people came out to play. The only thing they did not mention was they will soon close the course and renovate all 18 greens. They must not be watering the fairways they were dried out. Made for poor conditions at one of my favorite courses. I'm told they plan on re opening sometime in September. Needless to say, it was no fun to play. Nine holes was all I could take. Wait until they reopen.. Sorry Chip.

First and foremost, the greens are atrocious. They'll soon be replaced, but a warning or a disclaimer would have been appreciated. Save your money and go to a putt-putt course instead - you'll get a truer role there through the clown's mouth.

The pace of play was good and the staff was nice. But I don't advise paying to play here until they open after the greens are rebuilt, which I don't like saying because it really is a fun course.

The course is closing in early June to re-do the greens. With that being said the course was in decent shape EXCEPT the greens. I would wait until the course reopens in early fall to play.

Love the layout, history & staff, HOWEVER, the Greens were HORRIBLE! Starter mentioned before we began that they were ripping the greens up next week & will be closed for 3 months. Wish I'd known that the greens were in such bad shape, we would've opted for another course.

Sincerely,

Disappointed

Course was in horrible shape. Droning range was hitting off dirt. Greens were horrible, worsted greens ever. Paid $75 to play a goat ranch. Head pro is a jerk. Was one of my favorite courses have plaid it 50+ times. I will not be back. Ownership and leadership has ended it for me. Other courses in Dallas are in awesome shape. Should fire staff and start over. A real shame.

The overall course layout is great and fun to play. They are about to change the greens so they are not good right now. They still roll ok but they look terrible and pretty bumpy.

They had at least 1/3 too many people on that course. They were running people out every 7 minutes. Numerous times there were 4-5 groups waiting on tee boxes. Ridiculous. I wanted my money back. It took us over 5 hours to play.

Just playing golf is always a great day. Playing golf and being in Texas for the first time I was very much looking forward to enjoying the TRIBUTE at Colony. The staff was very nice and helpful.The layout also was very fair and fairways were wide enough to allow an occasional errant shot. The greens however with pawana everywhere were a nightmare.Depending on which side of the weed you hit would determine roll.The putts were truly unreadable.To conclude except for the greens and maybe a reduced fee because of it the day was great.
