Played this course for the first time with a friend who declares it to be one of the best in the area. Clubhouse staff only seemed interested in collecting my money. (Didn't give me any information regarding the course nor conditions.. actually took a phone call and left me standing at the counter. The greens were very inconsistent. Fairways were dry in several spots. The course layout offered a nice challenge. There was no "starter" to pair groups up.. so, 3 twosomes were ahead of us, each group playing separately. This slowed the pace of play considerably. Overall, not a bad course. I will definitely give them another try.

I played on Labor Day, so needless to say, the pace of play was slower than normal. Otherwise, the round was great! I always enjoy playing at Twin Creek. It's a challenge from any Teebox. I'll be back

Absolutely the slowest 9 holes I've ever played. At 3 hours to complete, I have to say it was the first time I was ever relieved to be done. Should have known something was up when there were no carts ready But the parking lot wasn't anywhere close to full. No starter or Marshall. Saw the cart girl once in 3 hours. Oh yeah did I mention 3 hours to play 9? Despite the course itself being in good condition this is the worst place in DFW to play. So much wasted potential.

Played twin creeks today and arrived on time for a 8:45 tee time only to find 6 four domes in the tee area.

When asking the starter about the delay he was rude and obnoxious about it. It appeared there was a large group squeezed in ahead of us.

We ended up starting 30 min late and playing over a 5 hour round.

Very disappointed!

Only 2 negatives of this round: (1) The beverage cart never passed us a single time during the 5 hour round [we flagged her down once when she was on the other nine]; (2) The 5 hour round - there was a 4-some of hackers with no one in front of them for at least 2 holes, we pulled up to the tee several times when they were walking off but they made no effort to wave us through.

In summary, 5 hour round with no beverage cart and no marshal - everything else was great, particularly the clubhouse hot dog.

Guy in pro shop was not that helpful. He had no carts when I got there, then saw me later when there were carts and said nothing.

Sand traps are just dirt and rock

Greens were good

For 16 dollars, it was a good deal

Played this course in the heat of the Texas summer and still had a good time. The course is in excellent shape considering the weather and lack of rain. The greens were a bit slow which is necessary sometimes to prevent them from dying. There were some spots in the fairways that seemed like ground under repair but for the most part the course is well kept. It is a relatively short course so good for any level of golfer but offers some challenges as well especially on holes 16-18. Overall its a good course that I will definitely play again especially for the price point.

My first time playing. I had a great day of driving the ball (86% of fairways), so I didn't experience the rough much. However, it looked like it could be challenging. The greens were a little spongy and inconsistent, but they rolled true. Will definitely play again.

I moved into this neighborhood over 15 years ago just because of the golf course. Back then it was a Palmer course and had Bent Grass Green's and was a great course. Now this course is worst then most municipal golf courses. The Allen Muni at Watters Creek is an awesome track where Twin Creeks should be bulldozed it isa shame what this course as become.

Haven't played this course in awhile and wanted to get a twilight in before a softball game. My buddy and I started at 5:45 and got through 11 holes by 7:30 before we had to leave. Had to wait behind a dad and his young daughter for a hole or two, but when they realized we were behind them they let us play through. Great price at $19 each! The Tee boxes and fairways were amazing, green and lush, not full of hard dirt like other courses in the area. The greens were soft and smooth, and ran slow, not bumpy and un-kept like other places I've played recently. I will definitely be coming back soon to get a full 18 in

Very pleasant staff at the pro shop. Good layout and well-maintained greens. Overall this golf course is not too hard to play and gives an average player a pleasant experience. There are some water hazards around some holes too, which make them challenging for most golfers.

The greens had quite a few Sandy patches on them. However some greens were perfectly smooth and puttable. I played on a day in which it rained significantly the day before, thus it was wet but not overly wet. The bunkers all had puddles in them which is expected after the amount of rain that we had received.

course can be good if the little details are fixed.

yardage is so easy to update so players can find distances easily.

scorecards - duh.

if greens are damaged replace the spots with new sod. charging a little more is ok just fix the greens. some look nioce but need to be pressed and firmed up so they roll faster.
