Reasonable green fees, Chris in Pro Shop is excellent, greens are the best I have seen this time of year and very fast. They do hold but you need to be close to pin on some holes since the ball may run off and into the water. I was disappointed with the big pot holes at the edge of most of the cart paths around the course! Really rough and they need to fix these issues. Fairways good and yardage marked well. Tee Boxes rough on some holes at the white tees but the longer tee boxes are not as bad due to not as much play. On five holes no carts on fairway and not all were par threes. If you drive to close to water hazards or areas marked no cart, the cart will not go forward and you have to back out slowly! Carts are controlled by GPS!! Kind of a pain sometimes. It is better to not hit a driver on many of the longer holes due to sharp dog legs with high trees/creeks. Iron play is the key on this course. The greens will test your putting skills. Overall really good course and fun to play.

I was very wary to play this course, given the fact that is a true Country Club experience. The front half of this course is played with in the community that this course is located in, so houses and commercial drainage areas. You really have to keep a narrow ball on the front half of this course. The GPS was a godsend on this course, as the distances were deceiving. Overall, this was a great course to play, it was very fun. The staff and the regulars were extremely nice. I would recommend this course to anyone of any skill level.

Not a straight hole on this course. Creeks running across at very strategic spots. Many hazards are blind from the tee box. I found keeping your driver in the bag and setting up your second shot is the way to approach most holes. The greens were very fast and challenging. Stay below the hole or possibly putt off the green and into water.

This is usually one of the better public golf courses in the Fort Worth area, but something is wrong. I don't know if the management has changed, but this course outside of the greens is in terrible shape. The fairways are unplayable in areas and the rough has been destroyed by carts. It was really sad to see this course in the condition it was in. I understand February golf and the course conditions, but this was not just winter golf conditions. I have played here numerous times in the winter months and I have never seen it in this poor of a condition. Hopefully something changes before spring.

This course has a really nice layout surrounded by railroad tracks. A neat setup that can be tight and challenging at times. Wasn't in pristine shape, but it was winter, so that's understandable.

This course is awesome! Has just enough undulation. But you will need to be a good driver in order to have shots at the greens, which are VERY fast. I took advantage of a rainy weekend so ended up having the course basically to myself. There are a decent amount of blind shots, so if it was busy I can see a round taking longer than pace. Still, I feel my overall rating would likely still be 5 even if I had played during normal conditions and with peak "busyness" for a weekend round. Strongly recommend this course if you've never played it!

Morning rain dictated cart paths only on a pseudo-holiday (Mon, Jan 2). That said, play was slow, but still under 5.5 hrs. Course good for winter, especially the greens. This course is always a challenge. Expect to use a broad range of clubs .
