Centrally located and easy to get to
This is a Dallas staple among municipal courses. Conditions are fair for the price and staff is very friendly.

Thanks for your reviews and great idea on the YouTube videos. I just watched them all including Colorado which I just returned from in July. Played west of Eagle Vail in Walcott course called Red Sky Ranch. Temps and conditions were excellent there as well.
Fun layout and walking friendly
I haven't walked a golf course in over 10 years, but my boss wanted to, and they rent push carts, so here we go. This was the first time I played since the course was renovated a few years ago. The clubhouse and surrounding area were especially upgraded. Greens were fast and mostly smooth. Fairways were a bit chewed up in places but what you might expect from a muni that is prone to flooding. Very easy to walk, and will definitely be back to do it again at least until the summer heat hits. Overall course conditions were OK, but not great. The layout, secluded feel, mature trees, and perfect weather helped make it a great day on the course.
This course was re-done and has really improved since then. but let's be honest, no matter what course you play in Dallas, Texas from June to September, the ground is going to be hard even if it has green grass on the fairways. This is a pretty straight forward course and is great for people who don't like that much of a challenge. The course has plenty of shade trees to hide from the Texas sun in the hot time of the year. The play is pretty much at a steady pace the 5 or 6 times I have played there this year. Over all this is a pretty good golf course.
Hidden course close to dfw airport. I usually play bear creek but wanted something different and was way surprised. Awesome layout about 7000 yds from the tips. Tight lies everywhere fast fairway and greens, lots of fluffy white sand in bunkers. I like courses where you've gotta hit fades and draws all over and this course rewards you. If you've played in the metroplex I would put this course on par with grapevine. Way better than ditto or bear creek. Great hidden gem.
Course is Thirsty
Not a bad course for the price, but it was crying out for water everywhere. It was amazing to me that the tee boxes and greens were even green. Tee boxes were so hard, you needed a jack hammer to tee up your ball. Locals were impressed that I made a ball mark on the green with a lob wedge shot from 70 yards, which still didn't stop my ball that rolled out 15 feet. There is danger lurking everywhere on this course. Do not miss the fairway or you will pay dearly. I'll play the course again, but will know better to land the ball well short next time.
