The two guys that I play every week and beat with authority both played the best rounds of their lives. One finished 86 The other 85. It is a tough course but I think you will love it. Just as they did and just as I do. I gotta play again. These are 94 to 100 players. Fantastic course .

You cannot beat the price for what you get at this course! It offers a challenge for the experienced player and is forgiving enough If you’re just starting out. The conditions of the course are excellent it is mainted well. Always a fun course to play with a group of friends. My favorite part are the par 3s!

FUN: I have played the brickyard many times and they seem to be working hard to improve it. Greens were in fantastic shape, held good shots and rolled true. Course was extremely damp due to overwatering which made some approach shots soggy. Bunkers werent worth plaing out of. Hopefully they will be worked on in the near future. Overall, the course was challenging as always with excellent greens.

FRUSTRATING: We had to tee off 30 min after our scheduled tee time due to a six man group teeing off - please dont do this on a weekend. I am all for a round with your buddies and friendly wagers but six guys on one hole is a bit much. The gentleman running the pro shop could use a refresher in customer service.

Overall the course in pretty good shape, I was impressed with some improvements to the carpath and the clearing of some of the areas where normally the bushes are always out of control.

Everything was great until our cart ran out of gas on #7. Waited around for them to bring us a different cart. Then when we got to # 10 there was a group that cut in front of us and slowed the pace way down. Very disappointing. The staff did not even offer us a drink or a rain check or even an apology. Those carts running out of gas is a total lack of care. This should never happen. If it does the staff should try to make it right. They did not care. Won't be back anytime soon.

Overall wouldn't recommend this course. The staff was not friendly or welcoming. Course was in okay shape, one hole the grounds crew was mowing the green and did not stop or get out of the way when we approached so we just picked up and moved on. Hard course as far as blind shots and navigating.

The Old Brickyard course in Ferris, Tx. is a different kind of course for north Texas.

It's very hilly with changes in elevation on every hole. I found it to be fairly challenging

but fair layout.

The two most difficult holes for me where numbers 9 and 10. Hole no. 9 is a blind

tee shot through a narrow gap. And hole no.10 is a par five with water in play on every

shot. Also 18 has a blind 2nd shot.

All in all I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to play something

different in north Texas.

We played this course Monday on a $13 Hot Deal. Due to recent heavy rains, it was cart path only, and we certainly got our exercise! It was worth every bit of the money. Greens were in great condition, fairways were in okay condition, a little rough but very playable. Course knowledge is crucial, many blind or tricky shots, very narrow landing areas on a few holes. Thankfully, there weren't many players out that day, we had the luxury of driving ahead to see the hole before playing it. There are TONS of elevation changes. I'm not a fan of the par 5 Hole #10 - with a very narrow landing area for the ladies drive and a fairway that skirts the lake for the entire length. I'd wanted to play this course for many years, but didn't want to make the drive. We played it while returning from a weekend trip, so it was convenient - and very reasonably priced on a Monday afternoon. While we enjoyed playing the course, I would not put this on my frequent play list due to the unusual nature of the course layout.

The great scenery of this course is hidden from view as you drive by on I-45 going to and from Houston. Local knowledge is key when it comes to successfully navigating this unique track. Hidden dangers lurking at every bend ready to swallow your ball up. Bring an extra sleeve or two just in case you end up playing by yourself.

After driving by this corpse for years I decided to play the course before I drove back to houston. This is a best kept secret! The course is very challenging and very fun to play. The greens are true. The staff was not talkative at all. But I still will play it again.
