Hidden Gem in SGP

I been playing all the public courses in DFW for 30+ years and have never heard of this place before. It is about 1/2 mile west of Prairie Lakes in Grand Prairie.

What a wonderful little hidden gem of a course. Apparently it started as private course designed by Don January, then went semi-private later. I am told it had to close for a few years due to pipeline construction thru the course.

Expect a flat course with well maintained fairways and fast greens, most of them are crowned.

There are plenty of water hazards, so bring lots of balls.

Unless you tip it out, the par fives are all reachable for nice birdie opportunities. Plus there are one or two reachable par 4's of you are welling to risk it.

Pay attention to your GPS as many hidden hazards await you.

I will definitely go back, and probably play a lot more strategically next time.

Not ready to charge $50

The course especially the greens need attention, hazards not properly marked. Perfect drive down the fairway ended up in water, no stakes visible from the tee box and no way to see the water unless you’ve played there before.
Greens are small, ok with that, hard, (not firm), hard, not ok, one approach shot had about a 8-10 foot bounce.
Facility was not ready to be open to the public. And for sure, not ready to charge $50 for a round. There are municipals that are in better condition in the middle of winter.

This is a garbage review. There is no way someone could rate the conditions as poor. Played the same day as this hack and had no problem holding the greens with approaches.

Great course and even better staff!

Played a threesome with a 10am tee time. Course was in great shape. Despite lack of golfing abilities we still had a great time all around. Bailey the cart girl, was a delight and consistent. The pace of play was normal and the other golfers were courteous. We each got our own cart to maintain social distancing guidelines. Carts we're well maintained and have a USB port for your phone charger. The greens we're in great shape and the pins equipped to minimize contact. I would definitely play there again!

nice course

nice round, i really like the surroundings with open nature
some hawks flying overhead some creeks etc
check the water hazards before you place your shots
not bad but adds to challenge of course, when i drove up the main clubhouse looks to need some repair i thought
if it was remodeled the course is really nice anyway
enough so it would be worth it they have a newer smaller
building so whatever their plans are but overall'a keeper and a nice visit

This course has beautiful tree lined fairways

Great course layout! It is fair but also challenging thanks to several creeks that run across and next to the fairways. The staff is super friendly.

Solid spot

Course was in solid condition. A few of the greens were rough but not unplayable. It’s an easy course to walk. No hills and relatively short holes. Staff was great and helpful. Solid bang for your buck. I’d play again

Grand oak

Liked the water hazards which are exactly where long drives end up and the sandy greens were also a surprise. Didnt mind walking 18 holes but a lack of restroom facilities and water was strange considering the heat and distance from clubhouse. A cart girl would have made all the difference, if a clubhouse bartender can hand me a beer so should someone on the course be able to with a water. Overall a great day at Grand Oaks.

Greens were in rough condition

Fairways were great and rolled out a ton, but the greens were like landing the ball on concrete. Several of them were being repaired and covered in sand while the rest were extremely bumpy

Course was in great shape minus the greens. The greens were patchy and need work. The rest of the course other than the greens was in pretty good shape. For the price I paid you can’t beat it!

Tried again after reopen:(

No greens to speak of. Wish they could get this course in shape- all the water would make it really challenging. Can’t recommend it right now.

Great little place to play!

For the price this is a great little place to play golf.
Played in early March so grass was just getting started growing. They struggle with water drainage but have done a great job trying to improve it.
Keep in mind the price you pay to play here and just have fun.

Course was not in good shape

It had been 3 days since it had rained but the course was still drenched and cart path only. The greens were not good. They had those little green spots making them very bumpy and not giving you a chance to get a true roll. The staff was friendly, so no complaints about that. The course has an interesting layout and if the greens weren’t so rock hard and bumpy i might say it’s worth playing but I definitely would not recommend it it in the condition it was in. The main reason I wanted to leave a review is because it received so many good reviews someone needed to give an honest assessment.

Other than the course still recovering from heavy rain throughout the week, it was in great condition! The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the course and of its history. I am definitely returning to this course to play again soon.

Nice trac but really wet

Book this one blind of the ratings. I imagine this is a really good course when it’s dry, but they must have taken a ton of rain because it was close to unplayable on some of the back holes. This entire review is based on wet course conditions.

Guys in the clubhouse were cool.

People make places great!

Chik-Fil-A aint got nothing on Grand Oaks Customer Service! They literally treat you better than some of ya family will. Pro shop guy with they beard was awesome and inviting. Jimmy the starter, was cooler than the other side of the pillow, just like your favorite uncle. Marshall with Sherlock holmes pipe was on point keeping pace of play. Lastly the lovely bartender made you feel like you were in a "Cheers" episode or neighborhood bar. If l didn't live 45 min away, it would be my home course. Definitely going back!
