Needs improvement

We arrived early to hit the range but were told after we paid that the range was closed for an event. The course wasn’t bad but the greens were in bad shape. Food was not good, they refunded my food because it was that bad. For $65 I would have gone elsewhere.

Greens need work

I like the course and aside from the greens the course was in good shape. The fairways even after a night rain were really exceptional not a bad lie all day. The greens are not in good shape many areas are rough and bare so anything outside 10 feet was an adventure. I would recommend this course if the greens were better but until then I cannot.

Greens are BAD.

Played this course for $46 on Golf Now. I had heard good reviews but they are going to have to redo every green on the course unless their greens keeper is a miracle worker. Rest of the course is challenging. Lots of places to get into trouble. I liked the course it was just disappointing to have such bad greens. All of them not just a few.

Greens took away from good experience

Thought the layout was good with a good mix of difficulty of holes. Unfortunately, the greens were in bad condition with majority of them had very little grass on them.

What happened to the greens?

Staff friendly. Cart lady nice. Starter really wanted everyone to play the white tees..WAY too short...just over 5800 yards on the card but tees seemed to be moved up even more...hit driver twice and probably could have hit different Club but really wanted to at least hit my new driver....The greens were horrible...worst have played on around this North Texas area...punch marks still very, very noticeable. And many fairly bare areas on many, many greens...truly never had a putt without some type influence from the punch marks...our group even said no worse than 2 putts once on the greens....I even asked the starter if all the greens looked like the practice green near clubhouse...his answer was “not sure, I haven’t played on them in two months”.....not sure I believe that...but maybe it is true... bunkers looked like never trimmed on the edges..had sand which made it a little better...

Paid $40 for this round. Played another course this past Saturday for the same but it as a MUCH better golf experience. But I have played here before and don’t remember course conditioning this bad.

Just my opinion.

Do not waste your money

Currently on hole 3 and greens are choppy from aeration and no sand. Fairways half brown even with all the rain. Bunkers never been raked. Might quit after 9. Should be a $15 course not $50.

Greens as of now, need a lot of work. A lot patchy brown spots making greens bumpy. .Sandtraps were not raked or being maintained. I have seen the course in better shape.

Pay attention to Advisory

Course going through airification and sanding, so terrible time to play...Greens are awful as they go through the process of re growing the turf. Tee boxes also hard as rock in many cases and hard to tee ball...One of our favorite courses in the past to play, suspect it will be a couple weeks before it in any shape to play. Heed Advisory and ask before booking...

Bad greens

My wife and I have played this course several times in the past and every thing was in great condition. This time the greens had been recently punched. I don’t mind playing on punched greens, but these greens, looks like they never did a second top dressing. So many bare spots. It looked like it had been several days since they were mowed. Impossible to putt on. Bunkers were more mud than sand. I realize heavy rain can reek havoc on bunkers but there was very little sand in any of them. Last time we will play champions Circle Golf Club.

Terrible

I’ve played several Troon golf courses over the years and I can’t believe that they attach their reputation to this course. The course layout is challenging but the course is just in terrible shape. Many of the tee boxes are so hard that they can’t be penetrated with a tee...but they are actually nicer than the recently aereated greens. This course was once a gem in West DFW...but is now worse than most municipal courses. It’s important to note that they still have their premium pricing. The pace of play was horrible due to a total lack of a marshall...4:45 min mainly due to a group of 7 players about 3 holes ahead and a 6-some directly in front of us. The bottom line is that I’ve played my first and last round there.

Disappointed

Was really looking forward to playing this course. Tee box’s were nice, fairways were good, greens in horrible shape. Did not see Cary girl at all on course.

Greens???

For whatever reason, the greens were in very poor condition. Disappointing because regular greens fees were charged. Tee boxes and fairways were generally fine but the greens ruined the overall experience. Normally a great course with a variety of challenges for every level of player.

Greens need some serious work

What would be an excellent golf course is undone by the horrendous greens. Fairways are great and the course has some very fun holes on it but paying anything over $30 to putt on these greens would feel like a scam. Hope to see the conditions improve because it truly is a great track.

The Golf Club at Champions Circle

The course is deceptively difficult especially when the wind is up. Currently the course is replacing two holes with two that are currently under construction. This course could be a top course in DFW with a bit of work. Not all the green and bunkers are in bad shape, more than a few on the front need some attention.

Unknown Scramble

We had a 1:20 tee time and they sent off a Scramble in front of us at 1:00pm. Not a good thing. We did not have a cart ready with we arrived and then our cart we were assigned only made ti through 8 holes and we had to change.
Course was in terrible shape, green were awful.
