Unfriendly staff

Not the best way to start a round to have to deal with grumpy staff.
Maybe he was having a bad day but shouldn’t take it out on customers.

The course was in good condition.
The fairways could use a little watering as the turf was drying up.
Greens were fast and hard.

First Time Playing

Top tier public course

I’ve played most of the courses between Richardson North to Gunter. They’ve done a great job grooming this course. It has a great layout, undulation on greens, some elevation changes and really made it a fun round. Can’t wait to play again.

First group a fivesome--grrrrr

What course lets the first group out be a fivesome and slow the day down to crawl? This course. Then to top it off the guys were rude and wouldn't let the three in my group through. We ended up skipping a hole.

Enjoy playing Waterview

Started playing Waterview about two months ago, have played 4 times since. Really enjoying the course. Fridge around some greens are very wet, but fairways, bunkers, and greens play good. Will be playing there again....

Ehhh

The course is still fun to play but the course is not in great shape. Bare spots on fairways. Fringe and collections areas around the green were muddy. Greens were bumpy and almost impossible to hole anything further than 5 ft.

I’ve enjoyed my previous visits to Waterview but the course is not what it use to be. It’s sad because it really is a fun course to play.

Greens are not good

Toughest and firmest greens I’ve ever played.. not only would they not hold a good approach shot from bouncing and rolling through the green, but chipping was impossible it didn’t matter what club you chipped with it was gonna roll out 15-20 feet and there’s nothing you can do about it. This was a last resort course for me and definitely still is.. I will say they finally got rid of the swampy fringes on every hole, so that’s a plus

Bargain Round

For the price Waterview was in very good condition. The only downside would be that a couple of the areas around the greens were muddy, the greens themselves were healthy. It was disappointing that the range was closed for the morning of my round, but all in all I would recommend Waterview to anyone looking to play a nice course for a fair price.

Fair test

If you keep it in the fairways, you can score. Get it off to the left or right in the trees and you will have trouble.

Greens are nice and fast

Starter is a very nice man. Greens are fast and in great shape. Around the greens sometimes is soggy so shots will not run on to the greens.
Only downside is they charge a 14 dollar fee if you don’t want to share a cart and ride alone. Otherwise a very good golf course and nice staff.

Almost there

Waterview has put a lot of money into course improvements. Greens are nice but are not fully established. Lots of water being used on greens which leads to a lot of mud and water around greens. If you haven’t played waterview before I would give it a shot.

Disappointed in course experience This time

Usually really enjoy playing here. But not this time. Greens were uncharacteristically rough and bumpy. Booked a threesome hot deal online for a good price but upon arriving at the course was told the single rider would have to pay an extra cart fee to ride alone or ride with the single they added to our group’s whom you know nothing about (COVID-19). Individual in the club house was very rude when questioned about this and lacked communication skills in just explaining this. The single then also had to pay the extra cart fee. By hole 6 we had to call to get another cart sent out as it shut down. The individuals who brought out the cart then rudely questioned us why we had three carts before leaving us the cart. Then on hole 15 the cart conked out again and another cart had to be sent and we again were questioned about why we needed a third cart. I GUESS YOUR STAFF WAS HAVING A BAD DAY AND WANTED TO SHARE THAT WITH US. I sure hope that this is not the norm of how you deal with your golfers on a daily basis.
