Classic and traditional country club now open to the public

Thorntree has been a true country club in DFW for maybe at least 30 years. For may clubs like this, they find they need to open up to the public to boost the revenue to take the pressure off the members. The layout is really good and some holes are straight forward and mildly challenging. Yet, there are some really great and difficult holes where par is a great score. The stretch of 3,4 and 5 are like the horrible horseshoe at Colonial. All the rain this year is helping to fill in some bare areas. My 3 stars review is for just two key details. One can be fixed and the other probably not. First is mowing. Maybe the rain prevented it but most fairways are too long and hairy. Second is the greens. They are smooth and in great shape but they remain the old traditional Bermuda from long ago. That means “slow”. The newer dwarf-tiff is the faster variety going in all over Texas golf. It’s most likely not in the budget here but if you like smooth greens and don’t mind it slower this would be a great course to play. I guess I am like Goldilocks, not to slow and not to fast, but just fast enough.

Great Course and club

This is a great tract to play. It rewards good shots and penalize bad ones. They had recently punched the greens, so they were a little bumpy but still would recommend it to any golfer of any skill level.

Not what it used to be

I’ve played this course many times when it was private and the greens were always smooth and moderately fast. It went public about a year ago and I haven’t had the chance to play it until today.
We hit balls on the range and went to the putting green before we teed off and was shocked to see how slow and long the grass was on them. There was no arification alert on the list but it looked like they had been airified recently.
We had a 2:00 tee time and at 1:57 we were called to the tee and it was announced a 2 some was going off in front of us. Not too big of a deal but with 4 scratch players in our group it was not ideal to watch this 2 some take 2 off the tee each none of which found the golf course property. They did end up playing fairly quickly but could have been handled by the pro shop a little better.
We teed off and found the first fairway had been airified in places, once again not disclosed on golf now. We came to the first green and to our disappointment it was just like the putting green, slow and bumpy. We found the conditions to be the same throughout the entire course, sporadic fairway airification and slow bumpy greens.
To top it all off we caught a 4 man scramble tournament on our 11th hole and had the pleasure of waiting on them the rest of the back nine.
I attempted to attach pictures of the greens and fairways but it would not accept them on the app.
This group will not return to Thorntree “Country Club”

First time..good course, but not after a hard rain

Course was a tough layout. Lots of trees and doglegs. Accuracy is key. Played after a few days of rain, and did not drain well. Overall, good value and pace of play was great. Staff was very friendly and let us go off early.

Fair ways.

With all the rain we have had, one would think the fairways would be better.

Thortree late April

Thorntree is a beautiful layout with challenging greens and terrain. I feel like it’s a precision course that gives you option of the tee but not much room for bailout on the approach shot.

Needs some TLC

2nd time to play Thorntree in 2019 since it went from private country club to public course. First time experience for my playing partners. All agreed the course has fallen far and hard from its former days of glory. It needs a lot of TLC. It won't keep me from coming back, just with adjusted expectations. It was about worth the $30 we paid for a Sunday afternoon round.

Good, challenging course

Good course, with fun and interesting holes. Some are a definite challenge for all but the most accurate players. Staff was great, as was pace of play. Keep in mind that grass is dormant this time of year, thus fairways will be hard and brown.

Sneaky difficult

The staff here is fantastic! The fairways are a little dry but the greens are amazing. Definitely need to make sure that you drive up the course a bit to view hidden shots.

Not terrible

Played on a Sunday for the second time. Very slow round (12:20 tee time, 5pm end). Many tee boxes are slanted. Greens were spongy and slow but otherwise OK. My main qualms with this course is the design. It is not a fair course. Multiple holes have a random tree smack in the middle of the fairway, penalizing good shots. There are many blind tee shots and approach shots. You’d need a yardage book (which they don’t have) or a caddy to know what club to hit off the tee and what shot shape you need. I would not recommend this course.

Very nice course!

A private country club recently opened to the public. Despite winter conditions the course was in good shape. The pro shop was super friendly and very accommodating!! Thank you!! Had a great time and course layout was fun especially in the back 9. Holes 9-16 are the best on the course IMO. can’t wait to play it when it’s green!

Good, Challenging Course

The greens were in great shape. The course has several challenging holes. There were several greens that had just enough slope or elevations that made this a challenging course.

waiting

starting your round 30 min. late would put one in a bad mood you might be able to recover from....not the case when playing s great payout like this. mr.krupa gave us two small buckets for our delay.nice gesture. sad part with a tee time of 2:15 30 min delay means last three holes were not played.great layout with every hole has character .
