There was a part of construction in front of first tee.

I had two group of 6 people ahead and behind.

The rough area was so out of control and it showed no maintenance in those area for a long time.

I would not go back there or recommend it to anybody.

Thank you for your review and feedback. Our goal is to deliver an exceptional customer experience to all our guests, and all comments are taken very seriously.

Yes, we are expanding our facilities, by adding 11 tennis courts and pro shop, so unfortunately, that construction has occurred behind hole #1. The great news is, those facilities should be done and open in a few shorts weeks. We appreciate your patience during our construction. As we have in the past, we continue to made tremendous improvements to our facilities (new bunkers, amenities and services offered), and are hoping our guests continue to enjoy them for years to come.

You'll enjoy the coarse layout, as it weaves in and out of this wooded property. It's challenging but fair, with wide fairways with each hole secluded. You may hear turkeys and see an occasional bobcat or coyote. I like playing here because it's not out of the way. The pro shop is fully stocked and the restraunt/bar is high end. Will gladly play here anytime.

Southern Oaks is one of my "go-to" courses and I always enjoy going there, however, if they are going to demand top green fees, the on course port-o-lets have to be replaced with real restrooms.

I'm a member at Southern Oaks and am delighted that I found this place. I've been a club member at a number of country clubs across the metroplex and feel my new home is better then most. Course is challenging and always in excellent shape. The practice facilities are great and the staff is as good as it gets. Friendly, knowledgeable and always ready to help. The future is bright for this golf and tennis club!!!!

The fairways and greens are in very good condition but still lots of construction going on. They are obviously making improvements in many areas. The prices are pretty steep for all of the construction going on. The staff was very friendly and I would definitely play again soon.

I play couple times a week and find Southern Oaks to be my Favorite Course. Not a Great player yet play from the Black tees while my best friend plays Red tees. My downfall is putting and always find difficulty in reading the greens. Sand traps placed in and along fairways the slopes around greens and rough grasses around greens make the challenge much more interesting. I Fully Recommend Southern Oaks to Anyone who enjoys not just playing golf hitting the ball but for the Challenge of fairway ball placement and the challenge of reading the greens.

I like playing this course because it has a little of everything. Holes with water that dares you to try hitting over it. It felt like they made the course longer. The course seemed to be in good condition. They are making improvements to the facilities, but that doesn't include the course at this time. I will definitely play this course again. I really enjoy it when I play here.

Really just a fantastic course. Challenging, yet not in a bad way. Course is incredibly well maintained, and a great course layout. Greens are a bit slow, but at least consistent. Pro-shop staff are always nice, driving range and practice areas are immaculate. Will play here many more times!

I should start with Southern Oaks is my home course and I play it several times a week. However I have also played other courses in the area recently and each time I do I wish I was back playing at Southern Oaks. The conditions of the course are exceptional. The staff are are always awesome. I know with the more positive reviews the more people will show, well the course deserves it with all the improvements made over the past year or so.
