Land values being what they are it's hard to imagine a better repurpose of land depleted of it's natural resources and topography. The elevation changes are very pronounced. There are more berms (and bigger) alongside the fairways than any course I've played recently. Water is a factor on plenty of holes; most crossings are wide ponds and not a meandering creek. The gas powered carts were the right cart for the steep inclines. At times it felt a little like fourwheeling. I wouldn't ever walk this course. Not that I walk many anyway. But if you're in to walking, skip this course. I especially liked the par 3 holes. Usually these holes are simply 140 ish straight mowed fairways. But here with the threes being mostly in the transition zone, the tees are elevated and most have no fairway at all. 160 yards to the green over either all water or un-mowed tall native grasses. If you don't get the ball up and near the green you've lost another ball. Many fours play like this as well. The wind was also a factor. But in Texas the wind is like the sun. My favorite hole (maybe) was #10. It features an elevated tee crossing over a wide expanse of water. 2nd and 3rd shots follow the shore of the course's largest pond. Probably for most it will be better to lay up on your third.

Course was in good shape. Pace of play was very good. Only complaint and it's minor. There wasn't enough staff at the concessions. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who likes a little challenge.

Not a good golf course for somebody that shoots over 100. I've been playing for about 8 months now and felt a bit overwhelmed. Do not go to this golf course if you have a bad temper. You will not have a good time. I however could do it again. Be sure to take plenty of balls.

The staff was really nice too.If they put little more effort for their lunch choice it would be much feel better.I dont like cold sandwish. Also care for femal e customer;there was no toilet paper at all in womens restroom.Othere than that it was fantastic!!!Definately i will be back!!

Unique layout led to some of the more interesting holes in the DFW area. For the price, one of the best values in all of Dallas. bunkers need work but the greens and fairways were in great winter condition. Truly a gem and worth the drive if you live in the Dallas area.

This course is tough enough with the water features and elevation changes. This round featured 20--30 mph winds with gusts to 40. I lost a 8 balls even with some I thought I hit into the fairway...the most I have lost in a day of golf, even 3 days for that matter, in 30 years of playing. It is winter time and the green speeds were uneven, fairways easy enough to hit from. I knew I was going to war trying to play this round. Even with the frustrations I enjoyed the round. Quite the learning experience.
