personally i think the course is pretty good for the price. i have played courses that cost more and are not in as good of shape. greens seem to always be in great shape even with the winter coat on. Fair warning keep your ego in check. this is one of the hardest courses i have played. there is only 3-4 holes if that where you have room for error. most of the holes if you are off the fairway by more than 5-10 yards your ball is gone. if you have ball control you can score good on this course. Personally i like the course. while my group plays course on the north side of dallas i still enjoy coming to country veiw from time to time to test my game and see if i have improved. if you are in the area and want a quick round i would recommend giving them a try

pros:

greens in good shape 95% of the time

nice pro shop people

in a quiet neighborhood and the course goes away from the the main road.

pace of play is good. i have played here about 10 times and round was always 4 hrs or less. cant remember ever being held up by group's in front of us.

really the only con is the pro shop is dated and limited selection.

I found this course on Golfnow about a month ago. This is a hidden gem for those who live north of hwy 175. Don't let the age of the club house fool you. This is a great course to play. The greens are in very good shape. All greens are elevated. Nice course layout. Have played the course 3 times within the last month and will definitely play it again. Hole number 17 will definitely test you.

This is not even close to a 4/5 star layout as so many other reviewers are saying. This place is on par with Keeton Park in south Dallas. Conditions were not good, made worse by grass clippings being left on the course by the greens crew. Greens were actually not bad. Very soft. But cut too long so really slow. I think it's an ok value at a sub-30 rate. I wouldn't pay more. If coming from Dallas, there are a lot of courses that are better layouts and in better condition (any of the city courses).

If this is the closest course to you, and you are looking for cheap golf, then go ahead and play here. In my opinion though, there are many other courses that aren't so far out that are a better bang for the buck. Course does have some interesting holes, and the course itself is in decent condition. Compared to courses in the DFW area, this course is middle of the road, and that is why I am giving it 3 stars.

This is a very nice course and it has been managed properly over the last year that I have played there. It is also a great value. The course itself is moderately difficult but it does challenge you which in my opinion helps improve your golf game. Definitely recommend.

I highly recommend this course ,booked on golfnow and got a great rate. Course was in good shape it doesn't have any sand bunkers but there is some water holes that will come into play. The greens was in good shape but wished they were a little faster , fairways was in great shape, not much rough keep it in play and you can score. The meal deal is a great value the cheese burger are delicious at nineteen hole. Will come back and play again.

This course is always in great shape, the staff is friendly and accommodating. What I like the most is the fact that is secluded, so you don't have to play by people's backyard listening to screaming kids. No traffic. Very relaxing and beautiful.

In a sense it is good for beginners due to the ease of the course. There are no real challenges other then a few spots with water and that's not much. They are in need of a major overhaul, in the areas of the club house and more so the course. Throughout the course there are over grown weed patches along with drainage tubing running throughout the course. Also on a personal note in my opinion the over sight of the needed maintenance and course care is due to laziness cause its an issue that is to easy to fix.

Nice course located south of Dallas. Green's, fairways were in excellent condition for early in April. The tee boxes need a little work but I enjoyed the round of golf and would return.

Some of the holes could use a yardage to trouble for example 2, which would help with club selection and probably speed of play. Have a skycaddie but the advanced features were not available.

Played this course for the first time and I will never be back. Let's start with the tee boxes. Absolutely horrible, trash and tees everywhere. Tee boxes had drainage ruts running through them. Ground so hard you could barley get a tee in them. Fairways were so bad you could barely hit off them. Greens were ok. Range was a joke. I have better trash balls than their range balls. I would be embarrassed if I owned this piece of trash of course. Do not waste your money, no matter how little you pay to play here.

Grass is so dry, your ball won't stop rolling till it hits trouble...

I hit a ball 400 yds today to a par 4 it was so hard (rolled 125yds)

One teebox I couldn't even get my tee in the ground.

Every green is elevated which made this one of the hardest golf days of my life.
