The greens were really awful, and ruined the whole experience. Poa annua has infested these greens, with 1 cm high tufts covering large areas of the greens. The bermuda portions of the greens were dead, patchy, scratchy, bumpy, or had been shot with weed killer in spots. Making a putt was only possible by sheer accident. It's really time to fire the greenskeeper and get someone who knows what they are doing. They literally need to burn out the grass on the entire green on every hole and start over. We played 3 other courses in the area over the weekend, all with greens very good to excellent. So there's no blaming this on anything other than poor maintenance. Was really disappointed after playing this course solely based upon reviews on this site. The layout is decent, and has some tough holes, but our day was just ruined by what's going on here with the greens.

I really wanted to like this course. It is located on a beautiful piece of land with beautiful water holes. Unfortunately the golf course was just in poor condition. EVERY tee box was a mess. Completely down to the sand. The greens were diseased and burnt out. The range was weak and the range balls were the worst I've ever had on a golf course, including many goat pasture munis I've played over the years.

The staff was friendly and affable. I probably wouldn't play it again.

No rush, casual pace of play. Fairways are starting to green up, greens are in good shape for winter. Roses are blooming, course is beautiful. My favorite course in this area. Only sounds you hear are the wildlife. Staff is very friendly and the price was right! Not an easy course but very fun to play.

Amazing course, especially for the time of year. Greens are smoooth and deceptively quick, but consistent throughout the course. Bunkers are well maintained and fairways always manicured. Staff is extremely friendly and will answer any questions. All around great course.

If you like a challenge and enjoy putt putt you'll love the course. The slope of the greens are such that if you don't put it in the hole it will roll forever. It was like playing putt putt. The ball rolled up to the hole and then rolled down and off the green. First it was frustrating then it turned to funny

There's a reason why this course has a 98% recommended rate from reviewers. This course is always in great shape and I just love the layout. A really fun but challenging course that always causes you to think. No two holes are alike, except for maybe two par 5's. Other than that, each hole is original. We played a couple of weeks ago when we had gotten several inches of rain and the course drained so well it was unbelievable. We also couldn't believe how fast the greens were with how wet they were. This is a favorite of ours and it's always worth the drive, especially considering the value.

Love this course, sad that everything is brown this time of year. Water hazards on 6 holes, are a real challenge. The crew maintainence is great. Greens even in winter months are well maintained. I would play this course exclusively if need be. Today's play was a real challenge due to 20-30 mph wind. Because the fairways are so well maintained that I got great rolls on the fairways.

Cold and wet conditions from recent rains. They were also watering the course when I got there which made for some really wet areas. Greens were very soft but were very difficult if you were anywhere but directly below the cup. Some of my shots hit close to the hole rolled off the green on a well struck shot. Had numerous 5 to 10 foot second putts since the greens were rolling so fast. Had a lot of 3 and 4 putts to make this my highest score of the year. Can't imagine how fast the greens are in the summer time! Even though I like the layout of the course I may not be coming back because of the greens. If you like really fast and sloping greens this is the course for you.

Played this past Friday 12/9/16. Our wives had a conference in Dallas and a buddy and I decided to make the trip to Canton after seeing previous reviews. Have to say this course was great. It was cold out so we were practically the only ones on the course. Great layout. Challenging in spots, but easier spots as well. Scenic lake views all around. 18th hole is great. Head pro Randy was very nice and accomodating and the service at the bar was great as well. If you are in Dallas and don't mind an hour drive (not bad with the 75 mph speed limits) this course is one that should be played. My friend and I have already discussed coming back if we are in the area again.

This may be a bit of a haul from the DFW area, but it is worth it in my opinion to experience this little slice of heaven. For a fraction of the price of most courses located in Dallas this course really has it all; beautiful surroundings, challenging layout, ZERO houses (except for the mansion on the hill) and super friendly staff. Every time I go experience another course I constantly ask myself "does this live up to any of my experiences at Twin Lakes" .... so far none have.

There's something different about playing golf in East Texas - peaceful, pine trees, relaxed atmosphere. And it doesn't get any better than what Twin Lakes has to offer with a relaxed resort like atmosphere. Beautiful views of the lakes, country side, and tree nursery. The course itself is fun ... a good mixture of challenging water holes, long par fives, soft greens, and East Texas beauty. Can't wait to see this course in the spring when the flowers are blooming.

The course was fairly wet after recent August rains and thus not much roll. However fairways and greens were excellent.

Several holes have long carries over water and with being a senior player, I am always looking for a bailout route.

Periodically they have great discounts thru course and Golfnow.

Will play aqain and again. .(Good Lord willing).

This was my first time playing Twin Lakes and boy, was it worth the drive from Dallas.

This course has everything you don't get from usual public play in the metroplex - tall pine trees, rolling hills, lakes and no houses or backyards.

Truly a great experience and just over an hour from downtown Dallas. I will definitely be back!
