Haven’t played here in more than a year. We are definitely putting this course in our rotation. The greens are perfect right now. Pace of play was good. Played in less than 4 hours on a Sunday.

First off - GREAT greens. Fast, enough slope, very true. Some very tough positions the day I played. Holes 2 thru 6 are quirky, odd, tight, and don't resemble the rest of the course. Layup, layup, layup. With the mud, leaves, and omnipresent creek, it is frustrating. Holes 7-18 are good parkland golf. Got grouped with 2 other guys and had a great time. #9 doesn't return to clubhouse, but snack bar is a nice touch. If 3.5 stars was an option, that's what I would rate. Again, great greens.

Great course for the money. From tee to green the course is in good condition. Great practice facility. My one complaint are the courses rules on the chipping area. I was yelled at for hitting range balls. The staff told me it was because no one picks them up. Sorry, but since I was 16 and started playing golf (26 years ago) Ive never heard of a course that either yelled at me or didn't allow range balls on a practice area.... here's a hint: get one of the cart boys to pick up balls and treat customers with a little more respect.

If you only have time for a couple rounds, I suggest you play here twice. It is fun and challenging and you will have a better idea where to hit the ball the second time to avoid some unforeseen trouble. There are a few spots on the course where you can't see the best spot to hit to.

The course was in great shape. Greens were quick and true. Some easy holes and some challenging ones. For the average golfer it was a good test.

Golfers cutting in front of me and no golf etiquette.

No marshal's controlling speed of play, it took me 3.5 hours to play 10 holes, ridiculous.

Interesting Front Nine, with a few blind holes. Basic Back Nine. Great condition. More trees than you expect on most Texas public courses. It was good value. I will return!

Normally I have good things to say about this place but yesterday was a disaster. I went off at around 1PM and there was no starter to keep the groups even and moving on time. Second there was no marshal to keep things from stacking up. By the time my group got to the 13th hole there were two groups waiting in front of us with another 2 behind us all waiting to tee off. At this point I said screw it and went in for the day. This is the second time this has happened and I dont think ill be back. its not worth the time or the money.

Course drained well from the recent rains. I never ran in to any casual water. I'm not sure if it was the wet fairways or if the course played a little longer than the numbers. I'm only a 250-260 driver of the ball, but I had a lot of 5 & 4 irons into greens. I'd like to play again when the fairways are more dry to see if that holds up.
