It is obvious that the staff of Texas Star takes pride in their course! The course is currently great shape. From tee to green it was hard to find anything wrong with this course. The greens are fair and roll true. The bunkers were renovated a few years ago and look amazing. I now know why it is hard to get a tee time out here. The beverage cart came around 6 times during the round, and always stocked with gatorade. The only negative is that the course is located near a landfill. The wind happened to be blowing our way, so you could smell it on the front 9. With that being said, it was not bad enough to ruin the round. I recommend the course to anyone and can not wait to play here again!

For months have tried to get back to play a round here. Was a perineal favorite years ago. This place has tons of tournaments so plan accordingly.

Usually a single walk on is considered a valuable contributor to course operations. For many reasons, including optimized cart usage and revenue to fill out short show foursomes. Here they penalize a single. Though the online tee time page, you can book a discounted tee time as twosome or more. A single can't book with the same avenue and will be charged full $80 price. Shop staff says that is by design.

Fosters layout is challenging and memorable. Conditions through the green are good to great. A few blind shots and hidden creeks make prior rounds helpful. Rely on the gps. Front nine has super tight tee shots and thigh high brush or forest if you miss. The greens were bent grass years ago. They have switched to a tif version and played poorly this day. They were aerated recently no had not been mowerd in days. Made recovery and scoring putts limited. Bunker play is likely so feel good as they have the "good sand". The corse stuff that provides spin and rarely plugs.

For service, the cart staff are great. Cart pick up car side. Low cart battery on course deployed replacement cart without having to call.

Glad I went but wish price issue and greens were better.

Played as a 3 some in 4 hours on a busy Sunday afternoon. Water available every 2-3 holes and the cart girl came by 3-4 times. Greens and fairways were superb. They are being punched 6/12-13.

Holes with plenty of variety and challenge. One of the best public courses in the area in my opinion.

My wife and I played here during a recent trip to dfw. It was kind of windy, 15-25 mph. This course is priced right and very scenic.we saw wildlife and hilly interesting layouts. Not common in this part of the country. Nice pro shop, friendly people everywhere. We did have a group slowing everyone down, but by 12th hole the ranger had come out and made them move on. We teed off at 2:30 and were done by 7:15. Even joined a couple of locals (Dirk and Ryan) at 12 and they were great ambassadors of Dallas golf. Play here if you are a golfer!

We had an awesome experience at Texas Star. From the time we arrived to the moment we left the staff remained extremely professional and courteous. The course was in great shape, my picture does this course 0 justice. There were plenty of cart girls running so we never went thirsty. The golf carts were in great shape and had gps to make things easier. Our green and cart fees included balls for the driving range. The first few holes are on the easier side, but they get exponentially more difficult the further you progress. Great club selection is a must, and make sure to take plenty of extra balls. My only complaint was that the round took much longer than what I'm used to, but in their defense, they were packed. It was a slower pace but the marshals kept things moving steady. All in all, if you want to play a beautiful course with a stellar staff, I highly recommend this course.

Nice course and typically pretty open during the week. Euless is very much a working class community which is probably why it's easy to get on during the week for cheap. Challenging course with many holes where a 10 handicap will gladly take bogey which makes you you press on the easier holes.

No push carts allowed? GolfNow states it is a walking friendly course. My playing partner and I were walking to 18th tee, with our push carts, when someone drove up to us in a cart and asked us how we got our push carts on the course. Did he think we had someone throw them over the fence? Helicoptered in? Didn't know how to answer except to say we had talked with the starter on number 1 (not to mention 2 marshals and a host of ground crew). He just said push carts were not allowed, it's a city thing, and drove away. Wow. I'll tell you what it is; it's a revenue thing. Ridiculous

Played with a few buddies this past Sunday. The course was in terrific condition, with the exception of one hole. I think it was hole 2. A marshall let us know that someone on the grounds crew may have run over a sprinkler, causing it to flood in a low area. They had that area drained and marked off within an hour or two, so no big deal. Other than that, the fairways and greens were all in fantastic shape. All of the greens were well maintained and rolled true. One of the best things about Texas Star, was the time between groups. They have a full 10min between groups, so we never felt rushed by the group behind us, and never felt slowed by the group in front of us.

Difficulty wise, Texas Star is pretty fair. I'm still a bit of a high handicapper (15 - 18), yet still had opportunities to score. The bunkers on the course are fair as well; they're placed well, so someone who is a bit less accurate like me ends up in them, but they're a bit easier to get out of which helps keep your average golfer from getting too frustrated. For your more advanced golfer, I believe there are a good amount of challenges to keep them excited. There are a good amount of blind shots, tricky water placement holes, and even some holes that could tempt the longer hitter to try for it in one.

Overall, Texas Star truly is one of the best courses I've played in this area. It is a little more expensive at $75, but in my opinion, it is well worth it for the quality of the play offered here. I'd highly recommend that you try it out if you're in the area.

I would play this course time and time again! Aside from the fact that I lost quite a few balls, especially on the front 9, I would rank this course up there with the best of them. We paid $75 a person and it was well worth it! Greens were in perfect condition. You could tell they had aerified the fairways recently, but they were still in excellent condition. I loved this course and will be back!

This was my first time playing and many people recommended this course. Was a challenging and fun course with many elevation changes and untouched in terms of not lined with houses left and right. Course was just aerated but really didn't come into effect but still pricey for the condition. White sand bunkers and challenging greens. Road bisecs course and can be noisey but worth it for the beauty of the course.

It's a great course and I love the layout. The only thing was that the fairways had recently been punched and the greens were a little inconsistent. The pace of play was glacial, we waited 20 min before we could tee off every hole. Other than that, great course. Probably my favorite or second favorite course in DFW
