The course was designed to be a tribute to great open championship holes and on that end they nailed it! could really see the holes and how they compared the originals. 1, 17 and 18 are straight from the old course and it was a unique golf experience in the heart of Texas. The greens weren't the best but ive never played these type of courses in England to know if they were just not great or just true to form with their replicas. Incredibly windy day blowing 30mph the whole time. Playing into the wind might as well put the ball in my pocket and take the double. True Open championship conditions.

Course is in great shape. Greens are awesome and I’m glad they let them firm up a little. Last time we played the greens were extremely soft and slow. Be back to play as soon as possible.

It had been a while since I played The Tribute and was pleasantly surprised with the conditioning of course. Greens are fast and in very nice condition. Traps where in decent shape. Fairways still have tight lies, but that should be expected in March. I will be planning a trip back to the Trbute soon!

50 degrees, wind blowing 25+ mph across the lake, whitecaps on the water. It felt like we were on the Firth of Forth in Scotland! Two notes before my actual review - 1) The bird life and activity was incredible - Northern Harriers, Red-Tailed Hawks, some gulls, kestrels, and even a bald eagle. We watched the Harriers corner and kill some rodents in a field. 2) Why does the Tribute use a picture from Old American GC on this website?

Course was in great shape. Greens were true and quick. The wind made them even harder as the ball blew off course quite a few times. Dormant rough made course easier. Bunkers were solid and consistent. The new greens were as good as advertised. The winds slowed play down a bit but we still finished in 4:20. I think the cold and wind made some of the staff stay inside - no bag drop, cart boys, or back 9 cart girls. This is a fun course to play made even better by the conditions mirroring Scotland on this day. In my opinion, this is fun to do at least a few times. I was actually glad to see the wind and hit some different shots. 110 yard 5 irons one direction and 180 yard 9 irons in the other.

If you have never played here - all holes are replicas of Scotland and British Isle courses. LInks golf (or close to it), big greens, tall grasses, and tiny flagsticks. A must for good golfers playing in DFW.

The course was nice for a February day. Grass was a bit dormant and yellow but that did not ruin anything. Greens were firm and rolled pretty true.

I enjoyed the day and would go back.

The Tribute is an excellent course. Nice facility. Nice people.

As you'd expect, some of the magic of the holes being recreated is lost. It's hard to recreate a scenic, oceanside par 3 in the middle of Texas. However, being by a lake helps add a little extra beauty.

The day we played it was quite windy, and that helped put some teeth in the course. I suspect on a calm day this course would play fairly easy, but throw in some breeze and some holes get pretty long and tough. I've not played authentic Scottish links, but my impression from watching the Open is that the same is true over there.

When you get down to it, the course was in great shape, great price, and you at least get a little hint of what those great Open courses play like. It's absolutely worth a visit.

After days of below freezing temps our foursome played this course and it was in incredible shape. The greens were in the best shape we could have asked for. The staff was helpful and courteous. Even the Marshalls we're nice when asking us to speed up because we teed off late. Worth the $70 on GolfNow!

If you have someone drop out of your group or cancel your tee time, the course charges you. I talked to the Director at the course, Cliff, and he said it's their policy.

The course is in great shape. Greens roll true.

Buyer beware if someone doesn't show up in your group or you cancel your tee time, they charge you.

So the conditions were great..you hav to play this course once to experience the old school links style of golf...we also did a replay which cost more than our hot deal originally...they are a little too proud of there course the real pricing isn’t outragous for greens that don’t hold and no gps on the carts for $100 I don’t think so but if you find it on hotdeal and haven’t played it before defiantly give it a try...
