This was my first round at this course and I was very impressed. They have made many improvements recently and the course conditions were excellent. The only caveat I would offer is to seniors 55 and up. If you are a senior and want the senior rate do not book your tee time through Golf Now book directly with the course. We booked online and the standard rate for our time was $48.00. The fellow who checked us in said since we booked online we had to pay that rate. That was the only negative to the day. All the of the staff was friendly and professional. The food was very good and the cart girl was seen frequently. We were a twosome and they let us go ahead of our scheduled time. We were first out and finished the round in about 3 hours. When we inquired about a replay they told us we could play as much as we could stand for $20. The second round was a little slower as there were plenty of players but we still finished in just a shade over 4 hours. I received a very healthy pour in my post round beverage at the bar and once again the service was impeccable. Everybody was on staff was very friendly and professional. I highly recommend making the trip out to Burleson to play Southern Oaks.

Always love playing this course, really enjoy the challenge of the greens, you can let your driver do the work from most holes, and then you have some that you have to play a conservative game

Makes for fun play, will always return for the challenge.

Im a fan of this track and facility. They have a nice bar/grill and the clubhouse is fully stocked. There is currently a Tennis facility going up, that has the #1 tee box temporarily moved up quite a bit. Fairways and greens are very nice right now. Give it a go!

From the First Tee to the Last you will be challenged. Course is long compared to others, has fairway sand, bunkers and everyone's favorite Water. Fairways always have Great Lie using same grass as on Greens, rough is just that, so you need to be smart and know you will be Challenged on this Course. Well Worth the drive to play Southern Oaks in Burleson, Tx

In Progress construction is Tennis Courts, not sure how many, but looks like 10. If you have friends that enjoy Tennis but not Golf, drop them off at Courts then Play The Golf Course.

Enjoy the Challenge

Course is great, no complaints, however back nine was totally backed up due to the "Owner" having a tournament. Once we got to #10 tee box our play was slowed tremendously by a 5 sum ahead of us. Marshal obeserved their slow play and did nothing. Of course the 5 sum never allowed us to pass therefore disrupting our tempo and play. I was disappointed how the round turned out. For the money our group paid maybe the owner should provide a round to us to make up for his slow tournament play.

Course was not in as good a shape as you would expect being what it costs to play. The greens had been aerated and it was like putting on a cobblestone Road. The dirt spots in fairway and around greens were muddy and an eyesore. It the course was in top shape it would be great and worth paying the high green fees.

They are making some changes to the course, they airated not too long ago and the greens show it but they should be prime time by summer hopefully. Great layout and good tee time management only had to wait because group in front had some bad shots off the tee. Nice practice area too

I had a wonderful experience here. They are in progress of repairing portions of the course but the parts that are under repair didn't affect me. Once the repairs are complete, this will easily be a 5star course.

Tee Boxes - Some under repair but in great shape on the rest.

Fairways- in great shape, they had outlined their up coming repairs and can't wait to see it when they finish.

Greens- Rolled smooth, true, and had a bunch of undulations.

Bunkers- Perfect!!! Soft with white sand.

Golf carts were in great shape, had seen the cart girl 3 time during the round.

In conclusion, one of the best courses I've had the opportunity to play on the Fort Worth side of the metroplex.
