It rained the whole night before and we were told the course had about 4" of rain. We were on cart path only for the entire round.

Staff in the Proshop was friendly; in just a second, we were on our way the our game. The course layout is beautiful and sort of challenging. The course is well maintained.

We definitely will come back and play again on a good sunny day.

Very enjoyable round. Able to divot greens (unusual on many Dallas area courses). Greens were clean (no bare spots) but slow and bumpy (bumpy may have been due to how hard you had to hit putts because of slow speed of greens, this was only negative about the course).

But the pace of play was horrible, 1:52 pm tee time, finished just after 7pm. Every hole had at least 2 groups per tee all day.

There was no mention on golf now or at the course the greens had just been punched and were sand covered.

This is a course that I definitely recommend. Very nice layout; friendly staff. There is a snack hut on the course so no opportunity to visit clubhouse between front and back nine. The greens have been punched and sanded in preparation for the warmer months. Putts still role good on the greens, but should get faster when the aerihydration fully comes in. Definitely will be playing the course again.

would keep things moving a little better.

Pet peeve. If I ever win the lottery I am going to develop or purchase a course that has "ready" in its name. Shady Valley Ready Golf Links. Marshal will give 1 warning about not playing ready golf. Caught a 2nd time and you're off the course for the day. I play with folks who say they would pay a premium to have that regulated. I know I would.

Fun course and several holes are very challenging, especially one where landing a busted middle of the fairway drive leads you to a creek area on the left and total jail. #18 into a 25 mph southerly wind can be the difference in a good round and mediocre. Brutal.

Good food and bar. Good pro shop. Good greens.

A little over 3 hours to play 9 holes but I was able to get a rain check to come back some other day. If this happens again, I probably wont come back. There are to many courses to play to wait that long especially when it can be controlled.

There are two main reasons why I was very unhappy with this course. First, I booked online for 18 holes and a cart. When I arrived, they said that I have to play the par 3, 9 hole course twice. They stated that I need to pay over twice as much as I paid if I want t play the traditional 18 hole course...a basic bait and switch.

Reason 2, they allowed about 40-50 10 year old girls to play "soccer golf" on the same exact course we were playing real golf on. We had to wait for them to play through time and time again while worrying about hitting a little girl with a golf ball every time we swung a club.

A final and less serious reason, the grass was so overgrown off the fairway that it was impossible to hit out of.

The course is in winter conditions so the fairways are hard and there isn't much soft grass but the greens are in great shape and are rolling perfectly. The staff are great and helpful and very friendly. The pace of play was bad on the back 9 was slow the foursome in front of us were several holes behind and the marshal didn't do or wouldn't do anything. Other then that it was a good round on a great course.

Nice course. Fast greens a little hard but they roll excellent, in general course was in good shape. The only problem is the pace of play.

All the staff was great, the starter was a nice lady really enthusiastic, really nice.

I only saw one marshall one time, and we waited every hole. We started at 1:12 pm, and could't finish because it was dark, couldn't play 17 and 18 . By the time we reached 17 we it was 5:45 pm, 4 hours and 30 min, we 2 more holes to go. I don't know if the tee times are too close together or the marshalls don't do anything to keep the pace, but 5 hour round is not worth it.

The weather was horrible - rainy, windy. The course was awesome though. Great layout, good options of tee selection, good hole variety, and good challenge. The staff was unbelievable. My wife and I were one of two groups we saw on the course and the staff gave us a covered cart and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. I can't wait to play the course in decent weather.

Reasonably good course to play. There were no marshalls out on the course keeping play on pace.

The sixth hole needs a re-design to keep the flow of play going as only a perfect tee shot enable the golf to go for the green in two shots. This hole is always congested with two and three groups waiting on the tee box while those playing the hole are either looking for golf balls or hitting punch shots back to the fair so they can hit onto the green.

The sand traps need maintenance desperately. They looked like they hadn't been fully raked in a long time. Several bunkers had about a 1/4 inch of sand in the bottom and then wet hard pack underneath.

Greens need water to help them hold a little better. Very hard and fast with many bumps around the cups. Every cup is on a mound made when the greenskeeper pulls up the grass to make a new cup. They never tamp the new hole down flat, but always leave the cup on a mound.
