Great layout sabotaged by terrible conditions
I’m going to give it maybe a little bit of a break, because of the rain last night and since were getting to that time of year, but it’s not that it was super muddy, it’s that this course, which still could’ve been fun, was in terrible condition and this course needs somebody to come in and fix its problems. There are weeds all over the place, the greens are hairy and also weed plagued, and it’s not gonna help that they are letting carts drive on the grass today when they really shouldn’t. I see why it’s fallen in the rankings.
This can be a really fun course. However the pace of play was terrible. Took just under 5 hours to play a round of golf. Lots of people out here looking like it was there first time to play the game. No marshal or beverage cart.
Love this course!!
It's a great course. Not like any other we play. Lots of blind shots due to elevation and brush. Not a long course, plenty of water to wet your whistle. I lose more balls here than any other. Once you play a few times and learn the nuances, it's a blast. Greens were fast today and in great shape. With all the rain we had, it was very soggy. Still a great time
This course requires ball placement.
This course requires you to be accurate with your shots. Must go and look to see where you are suppose to hit because of blind spots.
Had a 8:36 tee time, single player. Arrived at 8 and hit some range balls. The starter said just take the first tee as soon as your ready. “I want to get you started before this group gets out there.” He had a large group of retirees that were in groups of 4 & 5. I actually started early, before my tee time. But it was too late. They had already sent several groups of old farts out ahead of me. Nothing worse then being sandwiched between a bunch of old brickheads playing from the women’s tees and dragging their feet on every green. I actually enjoyed the course. Great layout. I’ll probably come back sometime, but definitely not on a Thursday morning.
Best greens around!!!!!!
I promise this course has the best greens in Dallas-Fort worth guaranteed..!!!! They were perfect... they rolled like tour level greens... Now for the rest of the course the rough is ROUGH and holes 9-11 will blow a round up, so bring plenty of extra balls due to the many blind shots.. A must play for sure!!!
The course has a lot of elevation. It is a challenging course that requires a golfer to use good course management. The course is in very good shape. The greens were good and rolled good, not slow and not fast. The course is well maintained. Off fairway hits can land in some very good fringe. I like the fringe around the greens because I am learning how to hit a flop shot. This course will test your skills but you can score on it
Greens were in decent shape
Fairways were Soso
Way too much crab grass
The course was just average. It what I expected. The greens were pretty good considering rain has been scarce.
If you tend to spray your shots around, be sure to bring plenty of balls as there is literally no room for error. It’s a very unique course with very unique holes. Lots of blind shots. Fun though!
Meet a friend at the Old Brickyard yesterday for a round. Here is a quick review of it compared to other courses I haved played this spring.
Greens- Better than most I have played, a lot of courses in the DFW area are struggling with there greens due to the very low temps we had this winter. Most here were ok and rolled true.
Pace- Played easily in 4 hrs.
Bunkers- Look like they are in the process of redoing them, most had new white sand with only a handful left to go.
Fairways-On par with many area courses, good, but still with some thin areas due to poor growing conditions from to mother nature.
It was nice to see they have spent a lot of money to put new in cart paths from my last visit on several holes, spoke to someone in the shop and they plan to do more path work this summer.
I still think the OBY is one of the best value for your buck courses in the metroplex. Senior rate is $25 and you qualify at age 50. I bet of the 40+ people I saw there during my round 80% looked to be of that group.......
Not one positive about it...
I am not a person that bashes for no reason. But there is no way I would recommend this course to anyone.
-Golf range balls - like they have been pulled out of a swamp after 10+ years.
-Greens - nothing green about this course. Most are painted.
-Fairways - see greens (except for painted)
-Water jugs - never filled (we teed off around 11:00)
-Car girl - saw her once.
-Starters/course workers - didn't have.
-Tee times - too many and too close. Unless you like waiting 10+ minutes between shots. We left after 12 holes due to all of the above.
-May have been the worst conditioned course that I have ever played. Hope this place closes from June-August as I cannot imagine it being worse.
This golf course is crazy! I’m from Florida and I’ve played a couple Texas hill country courses and this is definitely up there at the top. It was like real golf meets putt putt with the hill slopes and curves. It was so much fun. The 15-20 per hour wind made it even crazier! But it was a great experience. The greens are kinda ugly brown, but man do they roll true. I will play it again, especially if my Florida peeps are here.
Early in the season but it was great. Thanks for a great round. See you next week.
Terrible I mean terrible
This course used to be actually playable, but this last time the greens and the fairways are in such bad shape. It was like playing a cow pasture. I would highly not recommend this course to anyone.
Country golf at it's finest
If you've never played here you are missing out. The greens were fast and soft and rolled true for the most part. The fairways were a little thin but you can't beat this layout or the views. This is not the country club so if that's what your looking for stay away. Rather if you want to have a good time and stimulate your mind with the surroundings book it now. Bring extra balls for you first timers not knowing the bends and knooks and crannies will cost you, but for under $40 on the weekend best deal around...
Fun day playing golf with my husband. Very hilly and curvy course. Golf carts were gas powered to assure you could get around and up the hills. Driving around the course on the golf cart was super fun! Challenging course in beautiful hill country. Will definitely go there again.
Chose this course for the terrain always have lijed the layout they are making improvements as they can nee to turn sand bunkers into grass or renew
