Every time I played this course I had to face one of the most detrimental aspect of golf - slow, inexperienced players. I'm not just talking about skill level. You can be still efficient in maintaing your pace of play despite below average skill sets. I'm a golfer who enjoys nice weather and just being able to play, but it is unbearalbe to follow absolutely pathetic golfers who don't know how much they can be better off by allowing far advanced players behind them, espically when like 3 holes behind them is empty.<br/> One comment on course conditions is that bunkers are meaningless with little or no sand whatsoever. But that seems a norm nowadays in public courses.

This would be a great course if they would maintain the greens and bunkers better. All bunkers are pointless as they have no sand and are muddy. Greens aren't the best, but playable.

Well, if anyone was wondering if they were going to sell off the golf course land... YES.

The maintenance of the course was laughable. I broke 4 tees just trying to get them in the ground.

There is no sand in the bunkers. It was brown dirt literally.

The greens and area surrounding were good.

Unless you live within 10 minutes walking distance, and you can get a rate of 18 dollars... not worth your time or money.

I played this course last year & it was in excellent condition. It looks to me as though the course is not being properly maintained, some of the sand traps are being overtaken by growing grass & it looks kinda of rough. The greens were still in good condition & rolling well so I wasn't to dissatisfied. It's a nice course but it appears that it's going under.

I saw on the news that they're trying to kill the course to build homes. They bunkers are not playable. You have to pull your ball out and play in the ruff instead. The greens are in excellent condition and maybe the fastest in the DFW area. You must keep the ball below the hole or it will roll off the front of the green.

This course is always in pretty decent shape. Greens are very fast and firm, but roll true. If you hit the right line it will hold it. Bunkers are terrible/not playable. All in all one of my favorite course in DFW. I hope they don't shut the doors like rumored.

Bunkers are in horrible condition. This course publishes many different rates. Their actual twilight rate is $30, but they advertise $17 on their website and $19 on Golfnow.<br/> Even though they advertise $17 on their website they will try to charge you the full $30 + twilight rate if you don't know about their internet pricing they advertise on their website. Very shady and unethical practices in my opinion which basically runs of customers.<br/> They should actually give you a $1 refund back for each time you have to hit out of one of their bunkers.<br/> This used to be a decent course but they have run it into the ground and don't take care of the place.

Hi RShawnPaul,

We are very sorry if you think we are being shady about our pricing. The reason we have better rates online is because we can collect an email address from the golfer and when booking online you have to prepay a portion of your tee time.

Please reach out to me directly and we can discuss further, hollynteetimes@yahoo.com

Course condition has declined significantly. Bunkers have zero sand. All they have is rocks and drainage tubes. Fairways were thick and the rough was super thick. Finding balls 2 feet off the fairway was a chore. If you were in the real rough, might as well save your time. With all that said, the greens were some of the fastest I've played this year and I just got back from top tier Vegas courses last week. Bar has let the liquor license expire so don't plan on having a cold beer while you're there. Price was good via Golfnow. Sad to say that our group probably won't be back. I'm assuming economics and location are dictating conditions and the course could be on its last leg.

I've played this course a few times, the course has always been in good condition. The pace of play has been really bad. Two times in a row I've gotten there and had to wait 30+ minutes after my tee time before I'm able to start.<br/> Though I will add, the staff is friendly and realize the wait is inconvenient and give free range balls while you wait.
