Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Texas
Course was in great shape and greens were quick. enjoyed it.
#2 in the area according to me!
A buddy of mine flew in from the Northeast to play 4 days’ (fri (18), sat (36), sun (36), mon (18)) worth of golf. We played Cowboys (x2), Texas Star, Coyote Ridge (x2), and Tierra Verde. I will compare them with a few different reviews, but to short and sweet, they are all ridiculous courses and even in March had great conditions, you can’t go wrong with any.
Texas star was our last round on Sunday (round #5) and it had a lot to live up to but did not disappoint.
First the clubhouse was great, and people mobbed the grill and were not even playing golf, that’s how good the food is. The practice area is top notch and might be one of the best in area. Multiple elevations and locations to hit shots, a huge and accurate putting green and a mammoth chipping area and all this complete with free balls.
The course conditions were really good and in about a month will be almost unmatchable. The greens even now in March were rolling true to about a 13. Lighting for this time of year, I can’t imagine In May.
This course is hard…. ill say that again…this course is hard…. definitely the hardest course of the ones mentioned above. I hope you play with someone that has played there before when you try it.
The staff was great. The carts were cushy, and the hospitality was on point. We will be back in about a month to play this as a staple of my 4-some Dallas takeover.
Atrocious Course Conditions
Staff was extremely friendly and the restaurant on-site was solid, but I haven't seen a course in this bad of shape in my entire life. Several tee boxes actually don't have grass on them -- just sand/dirt. Trying to hit any type of a chip or wedge shot from inside 60 yards is quite the adventure too as you're basically required to pick the ball clean out of a lie you'd expect to find in a hazard. No grass at all, just brown. Super disappointing overall.
Tee box nightmare
Love this place over the years . Tee boxes are terrible . Kinda like a giant ant bed . Don’t understand why but it’s not the normal condition of this place .
Course No Longer Accepts Golf Now Tee Times
Got to the course and was informed they no longer accept Golf Now tee times but fit us in on a busy tournament day. One of my favorite courses to play and I was impressed with the fact they honored our on line rate and worked to fit us in. Was still charged by Golf Now for the booking fee.
Go play this course
First time playing this course and wow I think I have found a new favorite! Such a wonderfully crafted layout. The first thing that stands out in my mind is the variety of holes offered at this course. There are several holes with strategic elevation changes and others with creeks, etc coming into play. Favorite hole is hole no. 15 and the risk/reward that comes into play. The greens are quick and roll very true. An absolute must play for any golfer in the DFW area. I will definitely be back soon.
Absolutely Beautiful And Something For Everyone
First time to play this course and I must say the staff, amenities and course were phenomenal. The smells get a bit weird now and then being right next to a landfill, but for the most part the bugs weren’t bad at all. Greens are in pristine shape for the end of August. Top 5 must play course in DFW.
Wow, so Green!
Even after a drought, course in great shape, no burn marks or dead grass patches, greens in great shape, landscaping very nice. Great design with a couple tricked up holes, nothing too over the top. Love all the blind tee shots and rolling contour. I will return!
Best Course in the Mid-Cities
I am a member at Texas Star, so my review may be a bit biased, but it is the best golf course I have played in the Mid-Cities area. The fairways are in great shape, and the greens are soft and beautifully green. The golf carts have pretty accurate GPS in them, and the practice range is a real treat. A separate chipping area with a huge bunker and 3 or 4 holes to chip to, a very challenging putting green and a 3 tier driving range.
My only gripe about Texas Star is that some rounds can get over 5 hours, but when there are so many people out on the course enjoying themselves, its hard to be mad at the course.
First time here, did not leave disappointed (except at my score). Great shape, good true greens, even after an apparent semi-recent aeriating. Mental note of the day-the wind swirls here like none other. You stand on the tee, it’s at your back. Before you hit, it’s across. Made it very interesting. Can’t wait to come back & play Texas Star again!
Great Texas course with new greens
I say that they have redone the greens. I am not sure, but a local told me that and they were very fast. But they were very fair and consistent throughout the day. My wife and I got lucky and a cool front moved in and dropped the temp to high 80's and it was awesome. The course is in great shape and the only annoyance is the pace of play seems to always be kind of slow out here. But the layout,conditions and the people that work here are great!
Awesome public course!! Really good layout, interesting holes, risk/reward holes. It has everything you could ask for. Only drawback was the Poa creeping into most of the greens, hopefully as it heats up this summer that will die out but it made some of the putts tough. Otherwise it's a must play if you are in DFW!!!
WIndy and Tough
Played on a day that started out perfect and turned quite uncomfortable on easter. The course was a great layout with the exception of the par 3's. There's no need for multiple 220 yard par 3's. Otherwise the course is awesome! Very tough especially when the wind picks up. Strong test for any golfer.
It is obvious that the staff of Texas Star takes pride in their course! The course is currently great shape. From tee to green it was hard to find anything wrong with this course. The greens are fair and roll true. The bunkers were renovated a few years ago and look amazing. I now know why it is hard to get a tee time out here. The beverage cart came around 6 times during the round, and always stocked with gatorade. The only negative is that the course is located near a landfill. The wind happened to be blowing our way, so you could smell it on the front 9. With that being said, it was not bad enough to ruin the round. I recommend the course to anyone and can not wait to play here again!
Old favorite needs some attention.
For months have tried to get back to play a round here. Was a perineal favorite years ago. This place has tons of tournaments so plan accordingly.
Usually a single walk on is considered a valuable contributor to course operations. For many reasons, including optimized cart usage and revenue to fill out short show foursomes. Here they penalize a single. Though the online tee time page, you can book a discounted tee time as twosome or more. A single can't book with the same avenue and will be charged full $80 price. Shop staff says that is by design.
Fosters layout is challenging and memorable. Conditions through the green are good to great. A few blind shots and hidden creeks make prior rounds helpful. Rely on the gps. Front nine has super tight tee shots and thigh high brush or forest if you miss. The greens were bent grass years ago. They have switched to a tif version and played poorly this day. They were aerated recently no had not been mowerd in days. Made recovery and scoring putts limited. Bunker play is likely so feel good as they have the "good sand". The corse stuff that provides spin and rarely plugs.
For service, the cart staff are great. Cart pick up car side. Low cart battery on course deployed replacement cart without having to call.
Glad I went but wish price issue and greens were better.
Fun course with excellent greens and fairways
Played as a 3 some in 4 hours on a busy Sunday afternoon. Water available every 2-3 holes and the cart girl came by 3-4 times. Greens and fairways were superb. They are being punched 6/12-13.
Holes with plenty of variety and challenge. One of the best public courses in the area in my opinion.
