Sunny Friday at Hawk's Creek

First, it is always really nice to play at a well maintained course. Everything looked the way it should be for a golf course, the fairway grass was cut to the right length, trees and bushes were trim back, the greens while recently aerated were still good and the grass was grass not weeds, the sand was sand, not dirt etc. We enjoyed the layout of the course very much, the challenges of going down hill, up hill and avoiding various water hazards and hedgerows. I do want to mention the cart girls who were very friendly and were willing to engage us in conversation. It was very nice. All in all, I enjoyed playing there yesterday and I look forward to playing there again.

The course was in very good shape (although the greens had been airated recently). The clubhouse is the nicest I've seen. Very interesting holes. One of my favorite courses.

No restrictions here

Played this morning. Greens were worked on 9 days ago i was told but were still ok shape. oddly enough though my coworker and I were encouraged to ride in the same cart together. We were a bit uncomfortable about the idea so we took separate carts and teed off. we arrived to #3 tee box only to find a FIVE SOME playing in front of us, and they were ELDERLY gentlemen at that.

Enjoyed the round, course was in pretty decent conditions, odd that there were no bunker rakes ( there are a lot of bunkers here) but the golf course staff is as relaxed as ever.

we will be back soon to play it when things normal out.

Windy weather

Tough day on a great course

Course prepping for June so both greens and fairways aerated...Even so, great track although wind a killer. Can't wait to return in about 2 weeks when grass fills in.

Great course for the money

Course layout and the heritage with the brick building and bridges is just gorgeous. They had just aerated the whole course but even so played well besides a few bad bounces here and there. I’ll definitely be back.

Hawks creek

2nd time walking here, course is in good shape as always. Course is good for walking, however no flags to shoot at we did the 2 putt rule. I'll be glad when this covid 19 sham is over and they open the restaurant again. Hawks creek has some of the best food of any course in the metroplex.

No Pins

Played for the first time and really enjoyed the course. Greens rolled great and coursebwasbin great condition. Didn't like that they didn't have pins or flags in to identify hole placement. Quarantine conditions.

NO FLAGS............

Could have been a great round, but it's hard no playing with flags. Something I think should have been on Golf Now web site... Course has no flags. I guess that's a killer for booking tee times, because had I known I would not have booked a TEE TIME. Worse time I have ever had on a golf course. Will not recommend it to know one....

The Good, the Bad, and the COVID.

The Good: This was the first time in 10 years that I had returned to play Hawks Creek. (Trying to figure out what took so long). The course layout is a hidden gem. Conditions were great w/ exception of below.

The Bad: Due to city restrictions, no pins were installed on the greens (holes are there somewhere, (still looking), no carts (which is actually a great thing. This course is a gem to walk).

The Ugly" Covid. Once over, this course will be on my routinely visited list.

Bring your cart, and enjoy this awesome course!

Awesome place to enjoy the golf and the scenery

I really enjoyed a day off of work in a really nice serene and enjoyable golf course. The golf shop and all water stations were closed due to COVID so can't rate any of that but certainly can’t hold that against this place. Even walking finished in 3.5 hours, exhausted. Not in good enough shape for that but.. Every part of course is in pretty great shape. Tees, fairways, greens and landscape were really close to perfect. Awesome day.

Just Dandy!

I played this course a while back and I’m just now leaving a review. I am sure the course is just the same as I left it a month ago. Beautiful! I love this course and will enjoy playing it as long as I’m in the DFW area. Challenging, just the way I like it! The greens aren’t too difficult and they run smoothly. I recommend the course to anyone when I talk about golf, it’s my #1 in the area. At least for now, I’m still trying out other courses. If you can find a hot deal for a decent price and you haven’t played it, DO IT!
