I enjoyed the course, but there are some areas that need work. The front 9 had more issues than the back. Actually, I would limit the "issue" holes to the first 6 - after that, it was decent.

I look forward to playing it again.

Played the course again on Sunday (5/15/17). Greens were better than last week.

Liking this course more and more. Very easy walk, for those who like walking.

4/5 stars!

I have played Keeton numerous times and never been

impressed. Today I was impressed. Even with the rain,

the fairways and greens were in good shape. There was water standing in some of the areas alright. It was out of play if you hit the fairway. I don't remember that being true on other wet outings at Keeton. The greens were extremely smooth and held a good approach shot. I was amazed that the bunkers were not filled with water. In fact, there was adequate sand and they were all raked. But thank God I only had to hit out of one of them. My only real complaint was that the some of the tee boxes were a bit chewed up. All in all, especially given the wet and windy conditions, it was a great day.

Keeton is a really fun course to play for all levels, because it has a ton of risk reward opportunities. The course is not overly long (6600 Blue, 6800 Blacks), but as you go back on the tee boxes the angles change on you. You can opt to hit driver 14 times if you want, but you better be accurate and be able to work it left, right, up, and down. If you can pull of the shot...you are left with wedges and short irons into the greens which many of are tiered and play very small. I use this strategy when I play there because, You MUST! get the ball close to the hole to make putts, because the greens are not always in the best shape.

This is a fun muni in Dallas in great shape at a good price ($18 walking on weekday, add $15 for a cart).

First time playing here and had a blast. Tony, Brent and the club staff are very engaged and friendly. Course is in very good condition and greens were in great shape (no spots or sand that I saw)..

It's not long from the men's tees (6,300# but the fairways can be tight and the layout is challenging. My biggest mistake was putting a driver and 3W in the bag. Next time, I'll probably ditch the driver and bring a longer hybrid or 5W. A lot of the tee shots lend themselves very well to a 215-230 yard tee shot and I didn't have that in the bag, so I usually went with a 200 yard hybrid which usually left me with 130 - 170 shots into the greens. The doglegs, narrow fairways and trees are what keeps you from being able to open things up. I hit driver or 3W off of maybe 6 tees combined and probably could have left either at home.

The course is challenging and in great shape right now. Greens are true. Marshals were there to keep pace.

There's plenty of water to keep things humid but it doesn't come into play a ton. Bunkers were in decent shape but wet from yesterday's rain.

Downsides were: no beverage cart #90+ degrees in the morning and humid# and a 5 some that I got caught behind late in the round #but in fairness, they let me tee off on 10 and I caught them on 5#. The clubhouse is dated and small, but serves the purpose of getting a drink. It has plenty of nice TVs.

I'll definitely go back. I'd rank Keeton Park on the Dallas muni scale in line with Cedar Crest. Better than Tenison Highlands, about the same as Stevens Park #but Keeton is cheaper). Luna Vista doesn't even qualify for the conversation.
