Everything was great except for snack shop and restuarsnt being closed due to covid.
Its a great place. Next time definitely will play tennis too.
Very Good Shape
The course is plush right now although the greens are a tad slow and grainy. Overall course is in great shape. This was a Friday morning round and it took 4.5 hours so pace wasn’t great. But the Marshall was out checking on the problem group.
The practice areas and driving range are top notch. There is a huge undulating putting green - and it is same condition as the greens. There are level putting lies, downhill, uphill and in between. Easy for 10-15 putters on the practice green at one time. There is a pitching practice area (balls supplied as part of round fee). There are a couple bunkers to practice sand shots. And, you can pitch uphill, downhill, etc. Again, balls supplied - no extra cost. Now, the driving range - it is best of the best. Balls supplied - no extra cost. The range is lighted (well lighted) for evening practice. You won't find a better driving range. mats when ground is really wet. The course is a really good layout - designed by Mark Brooks and the setting is beautiful forest. 4 tee boxes, all LEVEL and good grass. Fairways always lush and well mowed. Greens have NO brown spots - Uniform grass and decently fast greens. Bunkers are plentiful - guarding greens and along fairways on par 4 and 5's. Pace of play is generally good although they do allow 5 somes weekdays and it can be a trial sometimes. They should have a marshal on course but, I have never seen one. The value is I would say BEST VALUE in DFW metroplex. his could be a private club easily - and there is no private club that offers this value. Staff is always helpful and friendly. Only negative - I wish it were not so far to return carts to return area from the parking lot - Yeah, i am tired after a round - 76 and could be in better shape. just have to gripe about something. Right?
Other than being a little wet from the recent rain, the course was in great shape! This was my first time playing here, but definitely won’t be my last.
Great practice facility and the course was in excellent condition
Course was in great shape, especially with the heat we have had in TX. I found it on Golf Now night before and played with two great guys, father and son.
Southern Oaks doesn't disappoint. Great value for the money. The layout is great for all levels from scratch to beginner. Greens were in great shape given the stretch of hot days we have had in DFW. Bunkers weren't that great, but I suppose I should do better to avoid them. I'll continue to come back!
While the course layout and practice areas are wonderful, was sorely disappointed in the inconsistencies on and around the greens. 70% of the green aprons were "soaked", with any shot into the green would plug...Some greens were also soaked, while others were dry and fast. 3 or 4 fairways also had "swamp" areas were possibly there were leaks in system. These inconsistencies detracted from a potentially great track.
Best course I've played this year so far
I played 2 rounds at my Dad's country club in Illinois in May and Southern Oaks was in such great shape I would place it above a very nice private club. They provide range balls and ice for coolers and we finished in under 3 hours and 30 minutes. That's was a good thing because it was super hot today. The greens were in good shape and my only complaint there was they did not water in the fertilizer enough onn a couple of holes. If the beverage cart had come through more often, it would have been better, but overall, it was a great round.
I really enjoyed the layout's transition from parkland golf to links-style play. It definitely presented a firm challenge with the wind swirling on the back 9. The open fairways were extremely forgiving, however. The main difficulty of the course was club selection on approach shots. Regarding the condition of the course, the fairways, greens, and tee boxes were in very decent shape. There were some unusual muddy spots, probably a result of a touch of over-watering since there hadn't been any recent rainfall. The quiet, natural setting offered a great change in pace from many courses in the Metroplex. The course definitely has a dry and fast appearance that was rather deceiving (not much rollout and greens held very well). This was also applicable to the greens which often appeared to be much slicker than they really were. It was pretty difficult to gauge those downhill putts, many of which I left short. Pace of play was excellent until my playing partner and I caught up to a bit of a bottleneck on the back 9. I'd hope the course marshals are a bit more proactive on weekends! Cart girls were extremely attentive (made multiple rounds). Overall, it was a great experience and a very fair test of golf! I'd highly recommend making the drive out to Burleson to give it a shot!
