Paid $22.00 which was worth it. Since it was the weekend and the line in the pro shop was a bit long we were anticipating a long round as it has happened in the past . We were surprised that we(a twosome) were able to get 18 holes completed in 4 hrs. The greens were quicker than expected the fairways a bit rough (but we paid $22). We were basically out to dust off the clubs and be out in the nice weather and we had a good experience. We were a bit surprised that there was not a beverage cart out on a Saturday though. It’s not a TPC course but it’s a fun course that met our needs at a reasonable price.

I have played here a handful of times, and the staff has proven to be more of a chore than the course itself. The fairways are hard pack, and the greens are bumpy. Thankfully not as bumpy as the Dukes of Hazzard cart paths.

The staff...

I once had tee time though Golf Now, and for whatever reason, it hadn't shown up in their system.

No problem, I'll just show him my confirmation email with the time/number of golfers. Nope, he wanted to see how much we had paid per person, since he didn't believe I got a $12 hot deal on Labor Day weekend. "I don't see it being that cheap." So I spend 15 minutes on hold with Golf Now trying to sort it out, only to finally convince him after showing him my bank statement!!!!

Fast forward to this past Friday. 2 of us teed off at 1:25 and played behind a slow 4some the entire round. No big deal, we're both beginners anyways, we can take our time and play a little slower.

At 5:05 (at least 30 min of light left) while approaching 16s green, the LURKING course marshall rolls up to us and says "This is your last hole." No explanation or reason given. "Why, are y'all closing up early?" "Yeah."

So with 2 holes to go, we were basically kicked off the course.

Nice staff, lots of not so serious golfers in denim no collars- no big deal- just saying, reasonable warm up area, nice course layout. Greens are hard to describe, they appear good, but have a hardy grass, Not sure the type- was a little bumpy but playable- not bad. Very good new carts. I would not take a client there, but for sure bring my son out to play here. If your not in a hurry it will work, I had close to a 5 hour round- stacked on each hole. It was a beautiful day for golf though, prob just busier than usual.

I've been playing this course for 25 years.

I haven't played it in a couple years because of the price. You can play most courses in the area for the same price. The fairways are rock hard. There were only 3 or 4 groups on the course. We played it in 2 1/2 hours. Willow springs needs to have a $20 after noon special and fill the course up.

So sad.. many memories on this course

Against my own good judgment I decided to play this course again since there was a deal for $12. Not even worth that low price. The greens looked like they just mowed the fairway really short. No way of reading a putt. Some greens were super slow, others played like Augusta (without the true roll). The grass outside of the fairways were unmowed Johnson grass that was so long it had gone to seed. The gravel 'cart paths' were like a washboard. I couldn't recommend this course any less. Avoid at all costs.

Noon tee off so it was hot but plenty of water on the course. Greens were OK. Pace of play was good. More water than I remember since it has been 8 years since I played here. Nice course I played with my son. Seemed like the Marshall was following us . Used Golfnow.

Pros:

Great course for all skill levels

Great staff

Nice range and practice green

Nice carts

Cons:

Some greens are iffy

And finally pace of play is atrocious we had a double myself and 2 foursomes waiting to tee off on the fourth hole took a little under 3 hours to play 7 holes I had to leave early because I could not handle it anymore

Poor conditions. No grass. Bad greens and slow play. Had to play behind a group of 6. Cheap beer was a plus but I won't go back. I need a positive golf experience.

Friendly people working there. We followed a small tournament and the group in front of us was a Six-some. Took 5-1/2 hours to play 18 holes. Course is mostly hardpan. Greens were ok to putt on but some greens were water soaked so chips would splat when landing. Occasional mud hole in front of greens. Course has a very easy short layout. Good for beginners but don't go there if you are in a hurry on the weekend.

Typical Texas plains golf course, with lots of local guys enjoying the course. The holes near the clubhouse, 1,2,3, 9th on front. 10, 11, 18 on back are flat, dry fairways and brown grass. But the remaining holes that run through the back of the course look like a DIFFERENT course; more lush, water hazards, greener conditions-funny. Didn't expect greens to be any good given practice green, but was fooled-rolled very nice! Lots of high handicappers and kids on course as it was mid PM on a Friday...Given cost-good value.

The greens are decent. The entire course is like playing from the rough. No clue where fairways and rough met. Course is more for the beginner player.

I love this course. I'm a weekend golfer, I shoot in the 90's. I don't like paying more than $50 on a round of golf unless it's for an occasion. This course is AWESOME for the money. $38 Sunday morning tee time can't be beaten. The course has some "patchy" spots, but nothing crazy that I don't see really anywhere else. The greens aren't bad - there's one spot on 17 that's bad, but that was it. The layout is quirky, has some holes you can score on, then some others where you really need to map out your plan before teeing off. I would recommend this course to anyone.

We are trying out courses around our area and found this on GolfNow. Was able to get on course with same day booking. Waited about 10 minutes to get service to pay green fees, even though one assistant had seen us at the pro shop within first 60 seconds. The markings to direct you to the next hole are lacking, as well as information on what holes you need to keep the carts on the path. Also the course allowed 5 players in a group which led to slow play on the round, especially when these players spent 5 or more minutes looking for lost balls on several holes. The positive was the greens where in good condition. Very flat course.
