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.

A great course that will be even better when they reopen with their new greens later this summer. The greens looked bad but putted okay. I will definitely try and play again once they reopen.

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.

This was my third time playing this course over the last three years. My only "complaint" last June was the restaurant didn't serve breakfast. Must be a pretty good course if that is the only complaint. And lo and behold there were complimentary breakfast sandwiches provided to us on 3/31/17. Much appreciated! As always, the staff was wonderful. The layout of the course is one of the best I've ever played. We finished our round in just under four hours. The greens were a little out of shape. I think the groundskeeper is having trouble eradicating some invading "weeds" on the majority of the greens. Not a huge problem, but slightly concerning. I really like this course!!

Right from the time I pulled up to the bag drop to the kid coming out to the 18th hole while we were putting to clean my clubs the experience was great. Very friendly staff. After i checked in at pro shop they had free popcorn and breakfast tacos. All the range balls you want to hit were also included. The starter gave us a history on the course and what to expect. Course was in good overall condition for this time of the year. Couple of greens were sparce but overall the greens were in food shape. The fairways were firm and fast what you would expect for a links style course. Played with some guys that had local course knowlege which helped as well. I will definately be back!

What a treat to play replica holes from the iconic Scottish Links courses. It was windy the day I played so even more authentic.

The fairways were hard and fast (as Links always are) and the bunkers were well sanded although not as deep and dangerous as the originals. The only slight disappointment were the greens some of which were a little patchy but generally ran pretty true.

Overall a great days golf

The Tribute is one of my favorite courses, but I played yesterday and was sad to see the shape of the greens, they were really awful. I'll wait to go back until I've heard this has been resolved, so, sadly, I wouldn't recommend playing here at this time.

I enjoyed my very first round of golf at Tribute very much and plan to play there as often as I can. This golf course has a very beautiful layout - The best I have ever seen in person. Fairways are in excellent conditions. However, greens are not in good shape. Only due to this reason, I did not give it a five star rating (which I believe this golf course can easily attain by fixing its greens).
