This is the course if you want play fast

++ Played fast, the course was almost empty

+ Greens are generally good

- No water on fairways makes them bare and hard expect within 25 yards of greens

- - Many bare spots in play R or L of fairways

- Teeboxes are rutted with divots and uneven lies

- - Mens toilets have feces on seats, womens toilets are unclean.

No Water, No Grass, No Value

Duck Creek is a great layout. Water and OB make most holes challenging, but so many holes are fun to play despite this. Current ownership has made changes that make the course more playable and friendlier to all golfers -- fewer traps, shorter holes, etc.

Pace of play is excellent. There is nobody in the course most of the time.

But this a great course visibly going downhill fast.

During the severe drought over the last 2 months, this course has only watered around the greens maybe twice a week and water some parts of the fairways in spots maybe once a week at most. As a result, the fairways that were very playable 2 months ago, are almost 80%-90% brown and bare making them playable only to the most experienced and more expert golfers. Several more trees have fallen over or split open. The course is losing a lot of them.

There are other problems resulting from neglecting basic maintenance needs. Tee boxes are poorly maintained. The carts are poorly maintained and are well past their expected usable lifetime. The cart trails are uneven and bumpy from cracks and neglected repairs. Both restrooms are filthy.

4th of July

The course was basically empty which I suspected on a holiday in the heat. Holes are interesting an greens are pretty decent. Tees need some work, but not too bad. Staff checked on drinking water and was in good supply.

A real good bargain through Golf Now. B

Rangefinder stolen

Rangefinder stolen right off my bag in the few minutes it took to check in. I know this isn't the greatest course in the area, but dang ... Pretty sad. Area and course must really be going downhill.

Pace of play also terrible, staff started some folks on back 9 so it caused huge backlog.

Great deal

Going out late in the day when it is hot means the course is pretty uncrowded. I like to play fast and even thought I caught up to a twosome and a foursome, it was easy to skip ahead and complete 18 holes in just over 2 hours.

The course is in decent shape, greens for the most part are excellent, although it looks like some idiot took divots on a couple of greens.

Fairways while not lush are good.

The layout is fair with some challenging tee shots needed.

A fun course.

Nice Course

An excellent place to play. Good layout, pretty good shape and little traffic at this time of day. (3:30).

The only negative was the gentleman behind the counter was on the phone for about 7 minutes with his back to the counter and never acknowledged me. Not a big deal, but he should have just held up his finger to say it might be a few minutes.

I hope to get back soon.

Duck Creek Has Improved!

The last time I played Duck Creek it was in rough condition - greens, fairways and tee boxes.

Today's round was a significant improvement - greens are grown in, smooth and putt-able. Fairways are green, well mowed and the ball gets plenty of roll.

Overall, a very nice experience on every hole.

If you have been avoiding Duck Creek I would encourage you to give it a try - I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Rough around the edges

When I first drove up to this course I thought it looked quite unkempt - I mean - it looked very poor - I'm thinking "why in the world did I pick this course?" - I saw it had average reviews and some were not flattering at all..Having said that a hot deal for 13 dollars on a friday afternoon was very tempting so i took the bait..The course is definitely below average maintained BUT I did like the layout on several holes - This could be a really neat course if it was invested and maintained properly. SO after all of that I will consider coming back but only for hot deals.. There is NO WAY I will pay more than 20 dollars per round..

Nice course

Duck Creek is still a nice course, good conditions, and once the clerk behind the pro shop counter stopped watching Yourube videos long enough to notice me, my wife and I enjoyed a windy round of golf.

Very rude staff, not willing to help at all, wired rain check policy

Definitely one star, if I could give negative star I will;

The staff at the pro shop is very rude and not willing to help anyone, it was a cold rainy Saturday, the temperature literally dropped down below the freezing point, we were so cold and because of the rain the grip became very slippery, so we decided to call it a day and was trying to get a rain check; we were just trying our luck on the rain check but what was waiting for us was a stone cold "NO" from the guy at the counter, just NO, noting else; when I called in the second day, I was informed that unless there was THUNDER STORM, they are not offering any rain check;

Be honest the green and the fairway looks okay for me, but the staff at the shop really really makes me uncomfortable, it looks like they do not care about any golfer or return golfer, all they want is their $42 bucks, that's it;

Only Players on the course

A cold and blustery Texas day in April, temps around 35-40 degrees...Only 2 players on the course so we finished in just over 3.5 hours. Course has some quirky holes, but all in all a good layout. Greens are small, but receptive and rolling great. Round included a beverage as well, perk we had not expected. Danny was a gracious host and we enjoyed the day despite the weather. As spring comes on, this course will be primed to be played.

The 2017 winter was brutal on all courses around this area. This course had not recovered. Duck Creek overflowed several times making the fairways muddy and lies very tight. It is easy to chuck every shot "fat." Many bare areas where ponding killed the grass. Greens are slower than usual. Many tee boxes slant (are not level) and are bare / divot ridden due to not be maintained. Many muddy bare areas near fairways are really hazards. Course owner is not investing in this course. Carts are slow, unreliable, and poorly maintained. Let's hope the superintendent gets enough money to put it back together by April. There is a great course to play, but the scars of neglect make it almost unplayable right now.

It's Still Golf

The greens have always been decent but now they are infested with weeds that make putting nearly impossible. The pace and layout make it worth a buck a hole however.
