Played on Sunday 6/17/2018. Showed up around 5:45 am, had the first tee time (6:15). Two staff showed up at 6:00 am, a pro shop guy and a clubhouse server. Neither seem to give a crap. No range balls out as were to be included in package. Pro shop guy checked in about three or four groups and then went and got our carts. Had to go to 1st tee without any full swing warm up. Tee boxes and fairways were in ok shape. Some standing water in places including some bunkers. Snack shop not open at turn, girl at bar slow, finally saw a snack cart on hole 11 and a filled water bucket on 14. What made this completely a train wreck were the greens. In 35+ years of golf, I have never seen any worse. Sand greens would have putt truer. When I played this course years ago the greens were ok, except for the overplay of the course and so many people not taking care of ball marks and the like. The greens now are patchy with bare earth in a lot of places. Some looked as if tanks had been driven across them. Stay away until they either get a competent crew or replace these complexes completely.

Fighting some winter rot or something. Worst shape greens I’ve seen in a while. It’s a shame too because when I have friends in town they want to play Amen corner. They need to do what the Tribute did and shut down and redo all the greens. Fairways were fine.

Really let the quality of the greens deteriorate far more than any course I’ve ever really seen in DFW. Used to be one of the best public tracks in town now you can’t even get a straight putt or roll on these patchy dying greens.

The greens are in absolute horrendous shape and the bunkers were lakes full of water and very unplayable. The fairways were in pretty decent shape. For a course charging $60 green fees to play, I expected much better. I won’t be back until the course is in better shape. Staff was very kind at the pro shop and honored a rain check that they technically didn’t have to. Hope the greens come back to better condition and I’ll give this course another shot. The course layout makes this place have potential to be one of the best in town. Please fix the course. Thanks!

Tour 18, wow! I’d always wanted to play this course and experience first hand the talk of the famous holes from the PGA. I really wish I could of. The fairways were in pretty good shape, as were the Tee Boxes, but the greens were the worst I’ve seen in the DFW area. You couldn’t putt be cause your ball didn’t roll, but dribble towards the hole. This was in the areas that actually had grass, as opposed to the parts that was bare dirt. Absolutely the worst experience I’ve had in years. Afterwards, when I “informed” the guy in the proshop, he made Zero effort to address the issue. Ridiculous service, ridiculous course.

We've played this course multiple times over the past 20 years. The conditions of the bunkers and greens just seem to keep getting worse over time. It's a great layout but do to the shape of the greens and bunkers, just no longer enjoyable to play. This is a real shame given the beautiful homes in the neighborhood.

Played here on a friday at 1:00pm. Got a great deal on green fees snatching a hot deal for 32.00 a person. Did not see anyone else playing the course until we finished and there was a group about 3 holes back, so we went as fast and as slow as we wanted to while playing. Only aspect of the course I did not like was the greens. Heard a rumor that the greens-keeper for the course quit and let the greens go to crap and the course has not recovered since. Lots of sand and bare spots throughout the course. But playing a tour 18 course for 32.00, cant beat the price. Enjoyable round.

Will not go on about the greens, others have already gotten it right. The main issue I have was that there were only 10 cars in the parking lot and it took 5 1/2 hrs. to play. There was 2 foursomes ahead of us after 5th hole and no Marshall to keep pace of play going. On 16 they joined up and played as an “8thsome”...Not fun and not monitored. Do not plan to come back.

This is a very simple and easy review. The greens at this course are brutal. Tour 18 big claim is they put 18 of the toughest holes in golf on one course. This maybe true for the tee boxes and fairways but the greens are brutal. many have large patches of dirt or sand others have grass that looks like it has been beaten up on for months. Dont spend your money here until they get this fixed. There are plenty of good places to play that have better greens

I’ve been wanting to play Tour 18 for awhile but heard the greens were in bad shape. I figured what the heck and would try it because surely any place that charges $60-70/round can’t have greens that are that bad. They were absolutely awful. If there was grass, most was dirt/sand, the grass was bumpy and you didn’t get a true roll. It looked like there was some type of invasive species on the greens. Another grass or fungus, I’m not sure. Either way it was awful. I would say it cost each person in our group an average of 8 strokes per round because of how poor they were. We talked about just giving each other two putts once on the green to make it fair to everyone.

The carts also need work. We hopped on a cart and started driving to tee 1. All the sudden the cart started swerving left and right. We looked down and you could see the front wheels wobbling. We told the starter and he said a lot of the carts need work. He said instead of going to tee 2 go back and get a new one. So we went back and got a new one after number 1. We started to drive off and that’s when I realized the steering wheel was upside down and we were still swerving left and right. I didn’t want to turn back around because I didn’t want to slow play. But we definitely felt unsafe driving/riding in it. I thought we were going to hit a tree.

Now for the good. The course could be absolutely awesome!! The idea behind it is amazing. For the most part the tee boxes and fairways were in great shape. Being able to play all those famous holes is amazing. But because the greens were in such poor shape, and the carts were unsafe, I won’t be going back. I wish they would invest the money to get this course to what it should be. I told friends if I had the cash and time I’d try to buy it and get it fixed. That’s how good of a course this could be.

I used to absolutely enjoy playing Tour 18, however it is so rundown. The greens are in terrible shape. We invoked a no worse than 2 putt rule they were so bad. The course needs a lot of maintenance from the cart paths, greens, to the the club house. When this course was in proper condition, I had no issues paying $100 to $125 a round, however $60 was way too high for the conditions of this course. How disappointing. It was the same last year when I played, however I had expectations that it would be better. It was not. I will not be back unless I hear that it is the proper condition. Sad.

Course is in good shape but greens are in very poor condition. The thing that really bothers me about this is. I called before I made the reservations and ask about the greens and was told they were in good shape except for #6 & # 7 and they just had some dormant grass in a few spots that hadn’t filled it yet. Nearly every green had several bare spots and #13 doesn’t have hardly any grass at all on it. We drove 3 hours to play this course and if I️ had known the true conditon we would have played somewhere else. They did have new cups on all of the greens that looked nice. Will probably not be back.
