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.

This course is in great condition even though they had just sanded the greens. Open and inviting looks off of the tee but still requires discipline with left to right control as you can find yourself in some trouble regardless of a good hit. Sand was well kept and fairways were much greener than a lot of surrounding courses. This might have to be my new regular course!

Greens were in great shape, we finished around 5:30 so they were starting to get bumpy from people forgetting how to pick their feet up when they walk. Played from the white tees which were a little short but it is about the yardage my 15 year old plays from. They need a set us tees that measure about 6500, there is a big gap from white to black tees. Great day overall.

Friends of mine had told me that the new owners at Southern Oaks had done some great things with the golf course. Course conditions yesterday were perfect. Greens were a bit slow, but given some of the undulations and pin placements, this was probably a good thing! Fantastic layout, great pace of play,, great condtions and a golf course that you need to play more than once to really get a feel for it. I'll be back to Southern Oaks!

Our group had fun and enjoyed the course.

Better than most for winter greens (undulating greens). Fairways are dead, like most courses in the winter. Good layout and challenges.

Friendly staff, and good facility/amenities.

Hopefully, they will fix the broken/cracked cart path (then all 5 stars from us).

We will come definitely come back!
