The course is in great shape, one of the best I've played this year. There is a beverage cart working the course even on a weekday. The pro shop attendants are a little dismissive toward Golf Now Users ( they are pushing their ARCIS membership club). Overall can't be beat for a Hot Deal price.

Fossil Creek is in our "regular rotation." On this day the course was in PERFECT condition...fairways AND greens. One of the great things about this course isn't even ON the course...following our play at FC we ALWAYS stop for lunch at Shady Oak BBQ....

Lived by the course for nearly a year and have not played it until this weekend. Great course design and love the challenge of the holes by the water. Only thing was pace of play was slower than what I am use to, had to have the group behind us play with us because the group ahead was SLOW but not the courses fault. Will definitely be back to play this course again.

I booked a 6:30AM tee time on a Monday only to run into a tournament on hole 10 that completely stopped my pace and no one at the club house mentioned the tournament until I was on hole 7. I was through 9 holes in just over and hour - once I hit the tournament it took me 30 minutes to complete 2 hole. I had to pick up and leave - for 50.00 I should be able to complete my round being the first one teeing off.

Playing this Palmer course was a fantastic experience and well worth the drive from where I was staying Dallas. The course is one of the best I've played in over 30 years -- unique features, great greens and immensely playable. The scenery was great and the fairways were in fantastic condition. I played in under 3 hours as a single on a Sunday morning -- fantastic pace of play. Arnie's Grill was small with a fairly limited menu.

This was my second time to play this course and it is has been great both times. Tough course that makes you think off of the tee which I love. Can't bomb drives off every tee. Even on the par 5's you have to think about where you are going to have to place your shots. The course is in great condition and the greens are great.

This was my first time to play fossil creek. The course was in great shape for this time of year. The greens were pretty fast and putted true. The fairways were a little thin but it's early in the year. All in all I really enjoyed. Many shot maker holes and with the wind we had, those became even tougher. Lots of water in play and many elevation changes. I'll play here again when in Fort Worth. It was a great value.

I have played this course before and enjoyed myself. Unfortunately, this was not one of those times. They pace of play ruined the outing. It was so slow that the marshal was making excuses instead of enforcing the rules. Spending ten minutes waiting to tee off on every hole after hole 8 is definitely not ideal. We decided to skip the last hole. I will not be going back any time soon.

This was a fun and really unique course. Everything was good but the only issues were that the greens were sanded and the fairways were plugged. If your smart use a lot of irons and hybrids off the tee!
