Great Day Out

This is third time we’ve played this course. Cart path only today due to rain last night. Most holes have wide fairways but with tricky water hazards on a few... making it very interesting. Greens seem to be in good shape, played a little fast even with good soaking night before. Pace of play was great today... likely all the dads were home with family. Can’t bring your own cooler, but each cart has 2 small coolers and you can get ice at club house. Mature trees, fair amount of shade. We are beginners but enjoy the challenge this course offers. We’ll be back.

Value golfing

This place has provided a value golf experience every time. It is a fun track. Conditions are very good currently. Greens are not fast but in good condition. For the price this place is hard to beat. Saw beverage cart 4-5 times. Lots of water and tall grass areas so bring balls if you don’t hit it straight.

Bare minimum course

Rarely did I not enjoyed playing golf, especially when weather is fair.

Course conditions were not good, with some cart path submerged underwater. Yet we’re being mandated to Carr path only. Slow play often but not a single marshal sighted. Needed 4:45 to finish playing by myself.Course layout has too many waterways in unseen places. Course design is meh. Clubhouse only has bare amenities. No driving range. Paid $30 and cannot say it’s worth t it

We are sorry to see that your overall experience was anything short of 5 stars. We appreciate your patience as the course has received a lot of poor weather this peak season. As the course continues to transitions into the hot summer months, we hope you'll give us another try in the near future.

Pretty crappy

Well for almost $50 you’d expect a pretty decent course to play at but that’s not the case here. No Marshall pushing the pace, fairways are thin, no driving range, greens are like fairways for how long the grass was, construction crew putting in power lines that you have to wait for as they slowly cross the fairways and then watch you play the whole time and overall this place is really rundown. Down brother paying more than $20 to play here because you will be highly disappointed. Parking lot surface will tell they don’t maintain anything. Nice new clubhouse though I’ll give them that lol.

This course needs work

Needs a lot of work. No grass on fairways. Greens inconsistent slow and bumpy ,ball couldn’t hold its line. Rough so thick couldn’t find your ball. Has a lot of water that’s nasty and smelly lots of trash washed in. No handicap flags available.

Great Course For The Money ...Waiting On Irrigation System

I have played this course for many years....even when it went by several different names, and saw several different pros and management teams. It has always been a fun course with amazing potential. I am grateful to the Mai family for saving this old course, by adding false fronts to the greens, res-sodding areas that desperately needed it, and getting the drainage up to par. Sadly, the old irrigation system is crapping out, but they are already on this issue as well. They need to speed things up though, because one good Texas Summer with sub par irrigation has literally destroyed more than one local course. I would truly hate to see Grand Oaks go th way of The Ft. Worth Boat Club which was another fun little Don January Design that died a sad death due to a broken irrigation system and a real scorcher of a Texas Summer.
This course has a fun layout, and they have already improved the sand in the bunkers. It’s good quality golfing sand, not the best ok filled playground stuff so many local courses use when times get tight. I agree with others who say they could use more yardage markers, though my Garmin works fine out there. Not everybody else has a Garmin, or something of similar quality that already has this course loaded onto it. Once the irrigation is back, I expect the hardgreens to soften, and the thin fairways to grow plush again. This course has always been.....a course with potential. I believe. This is the management that could put it back on the map. It is going to take yet even more TLC, but as I said.....nice layout, fun design, the bunkers are there, and they’re just a season or two away from 5 stars if they get the irrigation back online, and the trashy areas and hard pan cleaned up. I’ll be back for sure.

Thank you for the 4-Star review, we appreciate the great feedback regarding our course conditions, especially after the maintenance we have received.

Thank you for giving Grand Oaks another try after all of the different managements, we really appreciate it! Thanks for coming out and we hope to see you again soon.

Surprisingly Great

It was our first time playing this course, which we chose to do after reading so many great reviews recently. The course lived up to the reviews and my golfing buds and I will definitely be back. When we rolled into the parking lot we thought we had made a mistake ( I get now that they are under renovation ) but once we looked out over the course we knew we had found a hidden gem. My only suggestion would be for the course to post more yardage markers as today was windy and a pure guessing game as to what club to hit. Most fairways had the 150 marker but other yardage markers were scarce. Honestly though that was the only fault which wasn’t anything to keep us from coming back soon.

Give it another chance

This place used to be a real barnyard. It closed for a while and reopened in better shape, especially as relates to drainage.
The greens are small and challenging, the fairways aren't terribly wide and there's plenty of water and sand.
Fantastic value for the money.

Great value.

Took some friends out for their first time playing golf ever and it was great fun! A few holes are tough for the beginners with the bunker/water layout, but we all had a blast.

Best Golf in Dallas, bar none

Course was closed for a good while when some county agency had to put in pipes. Open now and improved (new cart paths, etc) and wonderful scenery with giant oak trees. Not too difficult, extremely beautiful and fun.
