One of nicest public courses in DFW

This course stays in great shape year round. It’s a bit pricey and usually pretty busy so be ready for 5+ hour round on the weekend. Overall it’s worth it one of the best courses in the area

Great course

Although greens had been punched the week before they rolled great. The course was in great shape despite the hot dry conditions.

Fossil creek was solid

ive played 6 rounds now in Dallas and every other round someone mentioned fossil creek, so the build up and expectations were high. like a movie that you highly anticipate im not sure it lived up to the lofty expectations but it was a good round. the greens had been punched last week but really didnt affect the roll of the ball, just maybe the speed as i can see these greens being fast once the holes are gone. dont get me wrong, the greens were still fine and rolled pretty well. the pace was 4 hours and 10 minutes and we had 2 4-somes in front of us so right at target pace. the fairways were mostly nice, the 2 traps i found had adequate sand and were raked. the tee boxes were good and there was plenty of grass for irons off the tee. the track was fun and challenging and unforgiving. highly recommend playing with someone who knows the course or just make sure you are right next to the 150 marker or you may not have a shot even with what seems to be a fantastic tee shot. im coming back when the greens get completely filled in, but i really liked this course. top 3 for me so far.

Tough Course

The fairways and greens were in good shape, and the club house looks great covered in that ivy. The course is pretty tough as it has a lot of dog legs. Had a great time.
