I love stayed in garland for many years and never knew this course existed !! I would recommend this course to beginners and average players.. The layout gives you more opportunities to play your shot.. Not to many hazard zones.. But overall it's a great practice course and would recommend it to friends and family

I'm extremely disappointed in the way the staff handled my tee time. I booked this course the day before, for a 8:48 AM tee time as a single. Arrived at the course 45 minutes early and noticed a large crowd in the parking lot and pro shop. Went to check in and pay for the round, and was told by the attendant that I would need to play fast and stay out of the way of the outing going out at 9:00 AM. He basically told me not to play, and if I decided to play, they would have the marshalls remove me as soon as the shotgun started. No apology, basically I should have not booked the tee time and blamed GolfNow for their error.

Average layout. Average conditions (less than one would expect in May). Good service. Probably wouldn't recommend with all of the other awesome courses around DFW in every direction. Lots of better options out there. Not bad if you can get it for $30-40 on a weekend morning though.

The layout of the course is good, but not conducive to walking. Many tee boxes were far from the previous green. The greens reminded me of the surface of the moon. The man in the pro shop was not friendly. It appeared that he wished he was somewhere else. I won't be back

Got a hot deal on Golf Now for 40 bucks. Clubhouse looks like an old Mormon church. Bartender looks like he is the lead singer for Korn. The fairways were decent but everything else was unkept and run down. I play golf because I enjoy the scenery but it's hard to do that when everywhere you look has a tennis court that hasn't been played on since the 1970's. Seriously, do not pay more than 20 bucks to play this because it's not worth it.

Greens are mostly sand, the cart paths are awful, can't find a place to wash your club, shouldn't be more than $15 to play here until they put some money into this course but for now it's still $40. Only play here as a last resort

Tee of was around 10:30am. Not bad for the price. The greens could use some work. But it was a very laid back smooth 18 holes. I like that we were able to play with no real rush. The layout is pretty good, I did loose a lot of balls, but really only at the 12,13, and 18th hole. I will def be back soon.

Understand the financial constraints but course is in sad shape. Was a member when it was private, always enjoyed the course. Staff trying hard but maintenance is a major issue. Greens thin, fairways have been flooded ( very rough shape) and just looks like it is in disrepair. Too bad.

Great course but bunkers have been left to have grass and weeds grow in. Need to bring the bunkers back or make them part of the fairway not having a rough lie in the middle of the fairway or to chip out of.

The course is very playable. I would recommend it most to somebody you wants a fairly low stress round. Pretty flat, no blind shots, greens in good shape but not complicated, tiered or undulating. Very good players will be fairly bored so if you are looking for a good test this probably isn't worth your time. The fees and service are very good for the money and a BIG bonus was that is was very wide open for a beautiful weekend day. Playing fast as a twosome was very nice. Drink cart with friendly staff was a plus.

I hate to give such a harsh review, but this course has certainly seen better days. Berthing is pretty run down: parking lot, tennis courts are run down, pool is drained and over grown with weeds. All the rough areas are overgrown and unkept. The greens are decent, fairways are ok. Course is a little difficult, but an interesting layout. I'm not sure who bought this place or what their plans are to make it nice again, but it's pretty bad out there. But it's a cheap round of golf in the city if you get the $15 round on GolfNow, but I'd rather spend an extra $5-$10 and play Firewheel.

It would have been nice to know there was a kids camp scheduled. Apparently it was added last minute by the pga and those of us who had already paid/were playing the course we're forced to "endure" the experience . The kids were fine, the parents..not so much. Crowding tee boxes , talking loudly at said tee boxes and basically taking over holes just because. I love the layout of the course, clubhouse manager was awesome..only thing lacking..courtesy from parents in a kids camp. I guess etiquette is not taught during this camp. Sad, very sad.

This course is decent but has potential to be very nice. The "club house" and practice facility have seen better days but the course itself was a pleasant surprise once you got past the parking lot impression. The greens were already turning but they were in good shape and rolled very nice. Fairways were also good and the tee boxes were hard but level. Course could use some additional attention in the rough areas. five feet off the fairway and there was chance to lose your ball due to the high grass. Overall, for twilight price of $20 it was worth it and I like to play it again to redeem myself on hole 18. Cross the creek twice.

Overall, the experience was good. The greens were in good shape, however the fairways were terrible and needed cutting. If the grass was cut on the fairways I would definitely recommend the course.

Duck Creek fairways were in good shape with all the recent rain. At first play was slow because a group in front was slow. After by passing this group, play moved at a good pace.

I paid $30 for this course and I'd say that it was right on the money. The staff were VERY NICE people. I cannot say that enough. A tournament started about an hour and a half before we did so we were waiting an avg of 2-5 minutes before playing each hole. The course was decent. I've played in some really cruddy courses and this was nowhere near these. BUT it definitely was not the most premier. The course was nice just you have to navigate through the neighborhood a little. Definitely a narrow course as a couple of balls landed in someone else's fairway a couple of times. Will definitely play here again though!
