Rusted Rail Golf Course, located about half hour or so southeast of Dallas, has a new name and a new look. Formerly known as Creekview Golf Course, the facility was purchased in July 2017, then renamed and renovated. Reopened in August 2018, Rusted Rail unveiled what is essentially a new golf course with renovations on its 36 bunkers, new Champion Bermuda greens, a new irrigation system and vastly improved conditions, including new cart paths and restroom facilities. Designed by Dick Phelps in 1995, the course can play from around 5,800 yards to more than 7,200 yards. The layout features mature oaks lining many of the holes with elevated greens and mounding. The course also has a stream running through the middle of it as well as ponds that come into play on about a half dozen holes. Additionally, the clubhouse has been completely remodeled and expanded to around 17,000 square feet.

Great Survivor

Played this course about 2 years ago and it was one of the worst courses I had ever played. You can tell that the owners now want to give you a good course for the money. My son was playing with me on this round and thought that it was a good setup and fair course. Really had great time and enjoyed the round very much, I will be visiting this course again to keep seeing the continuing improvements. Nice job on saving a good course!!!

Grand Opening for the Rusted Rail GC

Staff is superb! The course is very good, the greens are good and they are still working to make them better. I think the course will just continue to get better and better.

New course and clubhouse - worth the drive

This was the first time I've been out to the new Rusted Rail since it was re-done and was extremely impressed. The new owners have clearly put a lot of time and money in to this facility (formerly Creekview). The old clubhouse is completely gone and rebuilt. New tees and greens were put in and look great. The value is well worth the 20-25 min drive from Dallas. Will be back soon.

Golf course REBORN

This course has been reborn. My pasture used to be better, but after a year closure and MAJOR overhaul this is a real golf course again. The fairways are good and most of the greens are good, they are still working on them and should continue to improve. It’s only been open for 3 weeks so look for better things to come.

Improved but still needs work

This course has a very nice layout. I played it when it was Creekview. The Rustic Rail team have greatly improved it. The bunkers are great with soft white sand to test your play from bunkers. The course layout stayed the same. Hole #11 is very confusing. I could not tell if it was playable or under repair. Most of the greens needed some work. And the tee boxes needed to be mowed. The course needs TLC. with so many nice courses within the DFW area offering very good GolfNow hot deals, Rustic Rail is going to have to offer competitive rates to draw players. I will not play it again unless I get a GN hot deal below $20.

Should be closed until repairs are made

The only part of the course that was mowed was the greens,. Which is ironic since there was no grass on the greens. Worst course conditions I have ever seen!!

Course Needs A Lot of Work

I played this course about 7 years ago, and it was in good shape. Now it is in very rough shape. I am told they are evaluating how to resurrect it.

If your desperate to hit balls, then go. Fair ways need work, lots of weeds. Greens are diseased with fungus, however they are flat!

Terrible Condition

The pictures do not show how the course really is. There is no sand in the bunkers. The grass is not cut with any regularity. The greens really cant even be called greens. Weeds everywhere.

I was looking for a course to get a little warmup round in, since I haven't played in awhile. After the first hole, I had already decided that it wasn't even worth playing all 18 holes. Looking forward to actually playing at a good course next weekend

Creekview GC- Crandall, TX

The course didn't look great aesthetically. To my surprise the green (although not green) has true rolls. There were a few greens that needs minimal repair. The course offered challenging lengths from the white tees. The carts are gas operated and offer a lot of power. The driving range leaves a lot to be desired. The club house offered hot dogs, links, and soda. With a little bit of time and money this course will see better days.

Never go back

This is the worse course I have ever played.

The entire thing is a wreck, very poorly managed. Jimmy, the morning cashier ,has got to. be the rudest individual I have ever encountered. It won't be in business much longer. I'll never go back.

Good Value

The course wasn't bad for it's financial situation. The greens were ok and the fairways were decent. The bunkers were abandoned however a local told me they were playing them as GUR

Veterans day round

Weather was beautiful, son drove from Denton to play with me...we had a great time. Course in rough shape, minimum staff, possible financial issues(?). It can be enjoyable if expectations are low and you can avoid the fire ant mounds.

This is a Shame!

This is a very good layout that was not properly run and has gone into receivership by the bank. The course upkeep reflects this. The tees that are maintained are not bad, the greens roll true but need some major work in areas. The sand traps have not been maintained and are full of weeds as is the case for the fairways. There are some new folks there trying to resurrect this course - the bank is asking $1.2 million for the property from what I understand. It's in a flood plain so can't be developed. This coiurse might not be a bad deal for someone that knows how to run a golf course. I hope someone will save it as it is a very good track.

Don't expect too much and you'll be ok.

After listening to everyone talk it down we weren't expecting too much. They had just mowed so I'm sure that made it better. Greens were a bit sparse but rolled ok. Be sure to take care of business before you get on the course ( no toilet paper in the restroom out on the course). I really hope they save this course, it's been a fun reasonable place to play in the past. All in all it really wasn't as bad as we were expecting. We only paid 10 bucks on Golf Now and it was worth that!

Course is UNPLAYABLE

Course is worst it has ever been and is simply unplayable. Tee boxes are not mowed. . Fairways are not mowed. You lose a ball in the middle of the fairway. Bunkers have zero sand and are filled with weeds up to 3 foot tall. Greens are just horrible....dead patches all over to the point of just being dirt. Weeds clumps make putting impossible.

Do not waste your time or money.
