Not Good

Staff was rude. My playing partner got there a head of me. We were in line and there was a man in between us and the guy at the desk motioned me up since i had made the reservation. So the guy that was ahead of me started mouthing off about being skipped. The guy checking us in should have spoken up since he motioned me up. On top of that we had a tee time and had been standing in line for 15 minutes due to a tournament that was starting much later. No one gives us a key to the cart. We finally get to tee box and starter asks us what time our tee time was and we were 3 minutes late to box. He tells us your late. We were like it took us 20 minutes to pay due to tournament. Well you are late. Greens were horrible. Tje guys checking people in every once in a while should have asked if anyone in line had a tee time and was not with tournament and git the non tournament people through the line.

Okay but not worth the money

The course has a nice layout, and is challenging. However, paying what we did for a weekend morning tee time, the greens are not in good shape at all. Dirt patches scattered across greens, very bumping to roll putts. Not that it’s their fault, but no one fixed their pitch marks. Most of the bunkers are not playable, there’s some large cracking spots in fairways. If better maintained would be a better value

Bent grass greens!!

Had a great time on this layout played many times. The greens were in fair to good shape just because of all the Ball marks that we let all over the greens. At least half of the bunkers needed some kind of work. We just raked and placed because the sand so hard and some of them.

Favorite Local Course

If you live in the Rockwall, Rosye City, Garland, Sachse, or Rowlett area this course is by far the best around. It also is not that expensive. I have never had an issue with the pace of play. Just overall a fun laid back course. Staff is helpful and friendly. Only down fall is there bunkers are awful so stay out of those.

Not what it used to be

This used to be one of my favorite courses to play. It used to have the best greens in the area. The course has not been well maintained The greens rolll slow and not in good shape The greens are better on the back nine than they are on the front nine The practice area for chipping and the practice range are good. I would recommend the course only at a GolfNow hot deal rate of $25 or less.

Course conditions

Overall great time shot 68 from the blues it could have been better but left a few short. Greens were a slow and had to pound the putts to get there. But no complaints that’s golf adapt to the conditions.

Slow

Pace of play very slow due to tournament. I was not told of the tournament at time of booking. Not the friendliest pro shop staff.

Bad customer service

Booked a foursome through golf now. One of the four was having rotator cuff problems and couldn't make it. Tee time was for a Sunday after 2pm. They charged me the extra green and cart fee for the fourth that couldn't make it. I've been to a hundred courses that would never complain about 3/4 showing up. When I called to ask if that was standard operating procedure I just got a bunch of "I don't know you'll have to contact the GM". I won't be back, I hope losing a customer was worth the 27 dollars to them.

This was at one time a great course. It is mismanaged. No ambassadors to keep play moving along at a normal pace. Greens are diseased and need replacing. Traps are horrible. Fairways need to be punched. City of Rowlett needs to get control of this now.
