This is still my favorite course in DFW! The course has been renovated since the flood, including downsizing some of the bunkers making the course more playable. With that being said I believe this is the most challenging golf course open to the public in the metroplex. The greens are small and very undulating making ball placement key. Sitting on Lake Lewisville makes for great views and major headaches when the wind is blowing.

First time at Old American. Have played it's neighbor The Tribute many times. Overall it's a very nice course with many views of the lake that are scenic. Seemed like they had many "redan" style greens, less the slope element, in that they were narrow, long, and often angled. Greens generally rolled nice even in the dead of winter. Bunkers were terrible perhaps due to the recent rains but no excuse for that condition on a course like this. "Signature snacks" were granola bars, cheez its, and bags of trail mix to go with the included soda, water, and gatorade. No cart girl on the course so that aspect pails in comparison to Cowboys, which is about the only other area course that dares to charge as much as Old American. Worth playing once if you get a deal but not rushing back to spend $150 in the summer no matter the views.

This course has long been on my ‘must play’ list as it’s consistently ranked one of the top facilities to play in the DFW area. I’m thrilled to say it lived up to the hype and my only regret was not getting out to play it sooner.

Nestled along the shores of Lake Lewisville the architects did a great job of creating a true links golf experience by incorporating many unaltered features the terrain had to offer. I personally loved the bunkers and the challenge they provided in their ‘natural’ state. We played from the middle tees and at around 6,400 yards the course offered a perfect blend of play-ability and challenge. For those brave enough to play the back tees this course tips out at right under 7,000 yards and provides a challenge to the best of players.

Course conditions were immaculate and I loved the greens – they rolled smooth and fast.

Prior to the round we ate breakfast in the grill room and everyone enjoyed their meals. I recommend the 3 egg omelet that was complimented with a dynamite fresh homemade salsa on the side.

I can’t say enough good things about this facility and the experience it offers. If you happen to be in the DFW area make sure to add this to the list, you won’t be disappointed.

This links style course is a gem in the Metroplex. The greens are in superb shape, fast but still fair. Bunkers dot the fairways so accuracy is key on this track as well. Golf purist will love the stone/dirt cart paths and smaller flags. Playing here you actually forget that you are in the Dallas area. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly, especially Matt. He took the time to give us a tour of the area and answered all our questions. If I lived in The Colony I would join The Old American in a second!
