Mike was friendly and talkative as I waited on my friend to arrive. He is an older man and kept me entertained with several stories about coaching basketball, serving in the Army, and a black coach of whom he spoke well. He sent us off the back nine telling us that no one was going off the front because a tournament that started at 5:30. He said that we would have plenty of time to finish. We finished the back in under 2 hours. We went to hole# 1 to discover that 5 groups where on that hole. We asked Mike about it and he showed me who he really was. He was rude and rebelled as the Pro told him to give us a return pass for 9 holes. We where insulted publicly in front of other customers. My friend became angry and walked out leaving the course. I calmly tried to reason with Mike without success. He ignored me and then continued his condescending conversation as he refused to do what the Pro told him with the Pro standing right there. Finally, he responded and I stated that I would not return to Duck Creek to play again. I am an African American minister. My friend is Mexican and a 1 handicap golfer with extensive experience in this industry. All of this embarrassment happened in the presence of several men who were not our ethnicity. We paid! We should have been treated like customer instead of suspects. I am hard pressed to believe that Mike would have behaved this way with the other men standing in the room.

Played here a few times, always through GolfNow.

This course is tricky, and well designed. You will use every club in your bag. The greens roll nice and read true.

The fairways, tee boxes, hazards, need a lot of TLC. FIREANTS everywhere on the day we played, after a heavy rain.

This course is a diamond in the rough.

This course has potential. It is not very well maintained. The fairways needed to be mowed. The layout of the course is nice. The greens were not great but rolled very well. Apply upkeep and more people will play it but it is going to have to overcome poor ratings to get the public back.

Liked the course OK. The guy (Danny) in the Pro Shop needs some lessons in customer appreciation. I informed him that I was a senior, and was very cordial to him. His response was "you smell like a senior" . Some young punk behind me snickered, but I let it go. I'm sure he thought he was being funny. I didn't think so. I was considering putting Duck Creek in the regular rotation for me and my friends. I won't be going back - we selected Pecan Hollow instead.

I have played this course since it opened. Danny is a very funny man and is excellent with customers. I look forward to seeing him behind the counter.

Arrived yesterday morning for our 11:10 tee time that I booked through Golf Now. The staff, mainly the PGA Professional named Mike refused to honor the online rate of $30. Said it was not their fault that GN had advertised the wrong price. I will never go back there. Horrible customer service.

We booked a rate on Golf Now at $30 and when we got to the course they charged us $45. When I asked them why the difference they told me "golf now does their own thing". Thankfully I called Golf Now and they took care of everything and credited my account the difference. I will not be returning to Duck Creek.

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
