I hadn't been aware of this course until last week when I drove by on my way to the county courthouse. I booked the tee time on Golf Now. I arrived a little early but the course wasn't crowded and gent in the pro shop told me to fire when ready. Off the fairway it is easy to see the effects of over a month with no rainfall. The ground is very hard. The fairways and greens were in very good shape and the green speed was good. It is a nice layout and while not the most difficult course I've every played, it was a lot of fun. I saw several walkers on the course and would like to walk a round there. The staff was friendly and helpful all around the course. I will very definitely be back for another round.

I joined this course for the value and the condition of the fairways and greens. Granted, they missed covering the greens on one day this past winter and the greens took a big hit. Since, then the staff have worked very hard to bring them back and I can say that now they are about back to the near great greens they were last year. I like the staff and the nice clubhouse, but mostly the course itself is a blast to play!

after we checked in were we informed that only front 9 could be played twice since the front was plugged earlier that day, then the back 9 was in the process of being plugged. Greens were awful! Plugs were left around the skirt of the green, holes weren't filled in but LOTS of sand on the greens! Piles of sand that showed explosion when the ball landed on the green. Lotta bumps and dips along with holes on the greens made putting very frustrating. Glad we could play but would have not gone 40 miles round-trip for that experience if we had known. All other times this course has been in very good shape.

Nice course for the money. I normally play there once or twice a month. Greens have been problematic in the past but are now in acceptable condition. Friendly staff. Usually a good pace of play. For a municipal course in the McKinney area I would recommend this. For those who have not played this course - beware of #8; it is their signature hole and quite challenging.

While there isn't a lot of definition to most of the holes, it is a fun course that does require some thought. The conditions aren't great, but they certainly won't inhibit your round. There are a few over the top holes (especially number 8), but overall, it is a fun, and fair challenge. The staff gets a 10/10 from me, as they were incredibly accommodating. I will be back again.

A good golf course that could be better. Layout creates frequent risk/reward challenges. One of the few walkable courses in the area. Average round is 4 hours or less. Greens are generally well maintained. Most needed areas of improvement:: Fairways need more water and worm eradication. The result is that the course looks and plays best, and longest, a couple of days after a heavy rain. 8th hole is impossible unless you can hit an iron 200 yards and stop it with 20 yards of where it lands. For shorter hitters, the forward tee needs to be repaired or built. With those two changes it would be an excellent course.

This is not a golf course, the layout is so bad. From the back tee you don't even know what your fairway. Green in worst condition in the area. Definitely not worth the money. Can't even compare to courses like Firewheel.

I play here several times a year. The course is walkable. Easy from the whites (6,000 yds) and tough from the blues (almost 6700) par 70. 8th hole is one of the nastiest in the metroplex. Greens usually roll pretty well, fairly open though a lot of trees scattered along the sides. Almost no bunkers (maybe 5?), Several water hazards. Often you can play here in well under four hours, sometimes less than three!! (weekday afternoons). Nice clubhouse, friendly staff, pretty good price. If you play a lot, this is a nice ego builder from the whites and will challenge you from the blues.

The course was in good condition with one exception - the greens were AWFUL. They are old style bermuda and had patchy spots everywhere - had green paint to cover bare spots and had not been mowed.

I have played here several times in the last few years and the greens were OK - something has gone wrong recently.

Over all the course is good. The greens need some serious help they are hard and fast with areas that need to be patched. When you putt the ball it bounces across blank spaces on the greens. Some greens are ok but the majority have issues.
