The tees and fairways are in real nice shape. Many of the greens look rough, like mowers spilt hydraulic fluid or cutting blades malfunctioned. Course layout and challenge was fun.

I was extremely impressed with the conditions of the course. The fairways were immaculate. The greens were in perfect condition. The gentlemen behind the counter was courteous and friendly. I believe we got a steal that day because they only charged us $36! I will definitely play here again.

Upon checking in we were asked if this was the first time playing here. It was so the gentleman behind the desk took a few minutes to show us the course map and gave a few tips on playing the course. Also during this time the person at the snack bar informed us there was no beverage cart and offered to set us up with a cooler. It is the kind of service you would expect from a resort, it was appreciated! From tee to green the course is currently is superb shape! It had rained the night before so it was cart path only and we still played in 4 hours. Even with the rain, the bunkers were in good shape. The greens are well maintained and roll true. I am not bothered by the Pro-shop and snack bar being in a trailer. I would rather see that than a grandiose clubhouse and poorly maintained course. Will play here again.

Hole 5 has a pond in middle of the hole that is hard to see from the tee box.

I don't get over here to play it all that often, but I'm beginning to think I may have to rethink that. I forgot just how much I love this golf course! I play this course well, so that helps, but the course is in excellent condition, I was able to play in 3.5 hours, the staff was fine! and I love this layout. Greens are very smooth and true, fairways were awesome! Did lose a ball on Hole No. 5, but I wasn't the first and won't be the last!

Recently visited Texas on holiday and played Waterchase golf course. From when I arrived until I left the staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful. The course was in very good condition even after the large amount of rain the previous day. Waterchase is a real thinking mans golf course which is right up my street, it will test all parts of your game and if your a playing well you will thoroughly enjoy the course. A must play when In Dallas at a great price. Loved it!!!

Best value for your dollar in DFW area. Played 5 courses while on vacation this past week and This one was in the best condition. The tee boxes were even and nicely manicured. The fairways had a nice amount of grass and were still firm and the greens were in great shape. The course does have some very challenging holes with some risk reward shots. Staff is very friendly.

I played this morning with a foursome and we had a threesome of members play up on us so we let them play through. After one more hole the marshall came up to us and said we were holding up the group of members behind us. The group we let play through was still on the green so we were waiting. This process continued four times in two holes.

Finally I offered to take a refund and leave if the harassment was going to continue. We then asked him to tell the members in front of us to speed up play so we are not waiting. He finally quit harassing us after 9.

By the way we finished in four hours with the course being backed up.

If you're not a member I wouldn't play here. If it wasn't for the harassment the rating would be positive.

The course was nice. Greens Good. The smell from the water crossing was very bad. The facility needs a club house and on course service. For the green fee the visit was not worth the drive nor the $$.

I would probably play there again but it would take a good deal on the green fee to get me there again.

I have lived in DFW for years and have heard of Waterchase but, never played it before. It is truly a hidden gem. They tell you that you'll use every club in your bag. Believe them. Perfect sunny Texas morning with the exception of a still southerly wind. Local knowledge goes a long way. With no one right behind us we did drive up to see where the hole went. #17 was a surprise... The greens were slow but rolled true. the fairways were great, take a nice divot with your iron and the ball still rolled out off the tee. For my money they can stay in the modular clubhouse and put their $$$ in the course. I'll be back.

After being battered with awful green conditions recently on other courses, I was very happy to see perfect greens at Waterchase. Perfect. Fairways and tees were grassy too. Pace was excellent even with a tournament ahead of and behind us.

Course is still a good one although with a few quirky holes. The riverside holes could use better sightlines. 5 par 5's and 5 par 3's are kinda cool to play. Several holes are treelined and driver stays in the bag.

Overall the best course I have reviewed this summer. Not for everyone, but a good challenge to better players. Some really good fishing in the lakes too, if you can sneak a pocket rod in your bag :)

Lastly - how are they still in a temporary trailer 15 years after opening?

This is a tough course. There are 5 or 6 tee boxes for all levels! The layout is challenging and fun because it makes you use all of your bag. The greens are usually in really good condition. They are about 2 1/2 week out from being punched so they are starting to roll really nice. The price during peak hours is expensive but twilight you can find good deals. Highly recommended course!!!

I love this course. The first time I played it, about 8 years ago, I rinsed 6 sleeves of balls as a beginner... Now that I'm playing more regularly, and shooting in the mid to low 80s, I recognize that greens are a pivotal part of the course. The greens on this course were filled with sand. At times to the point where it seemed as if I was putting in a bunker. I expect better course conditions when I pay $50 for a round of golf. Now to be fair, the rest of the course was in excellent shape and the course service came early and often on a hot Saturday afternoon. I think a suggestion not only for this course but for all courses is, if you, as a course have aerated the greens and filled them with sand, alert the players or cut the cost....my $0.02.

Mr. Clark,

We apologize that you were not made aware of the recently aerified greens. It is always our intention to inform guests of current course conditions. In addition to notifying every guest when booking a tee time for the first week after aerification, we also offer twilight rates in consideration of the course not being up to our usual standards. Sorry we did not get that accurately conveyed to you.

Jason Heitschmidt, GM
