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.

The greens were in much better condition than last year. They had been verti-cut but still rolled pretty well. A few greens have brown patches, hope they fill out in late spring/ early summer. This is a fun, quirky layout and a steal at this price. I will be back!

I had one free day in the Dallas area to play golf and after a few days of looking for the right course I decided to play at Old Brickyard. That was the right choice. Far from the city the views were great all around the course. There was plenty of elevation throughout to give even the most straight forward holes some excitement and challenge. The course made me think about every shot on where and how to play the ball. The greens were in great condition and the balled rolled consistent all day. The fairways were in OK condition, but on a few holes they were not well defined. They just blended into the rough. The tee boxes were rough. I could tell they were trying to give certain areas a break, but there was not a lot of solid green grass on the tee boxes. This course was tough and challenging, but it was a fun course than made the day a lot of fun for me. I may not have shot a low score, but I still enjoyed my time and would make a return visit the next time I am in the area.

This golf course is not long, but very challenging. We played Gold tee at around 6200 yards. South wind of about 18 mph made this course very interesting. Hole No. 10, par-5, which requires 3 perfect shots going across the water, is the signature hole. We all enjoyed the course and would come back right away. The green condition was very good and fast....
