My favorite course

Been my "home course" for over 30 years. Played a number of other local courses, this is my favorite.
Only thing some golfers won't like is there are NO sand traps. No issue there for me. But it would be nice if they added some .

First Time Playing

Pretty Good Muni

First time playing Prairie Lakes. Played with some fun guys that both knew the course. Fairways were dormant, but pretty quick. The ball ran out well. Greens were receptive. Seemed like a lot of people failed to fix there ball marks??! Speed was not overly quick, but I struggled to read them because, they too were mostly dormant.We played Blue/White. Seemed like every Par 3 was overwater and playing about 180-190 yards into the wind?? There’s a reason they call it Prairie Lakes, but most of the water was pretty apparent; no hidden hazards that were actually in play(unless you were trying to hit the short Par 4s from the box). I’ll definitely go back. It reminded me of Grapevine Muni, and that’s a compliment. And the Pro Shop had a “Special” on ProVs; $40/dozen(normally $59!). Have fun! Play well!

Winter in Texas

Arrived early and had lunch at Eddlemon’s. Probably the best BBQ that I’ve had in the DFW metro. Order the brisket sandwich, you won’t be sorry.
Always enjoy this place every time I’ve played here. Yes, this is winter in Texas. The course was in great shape and the greens rolled true. One of the great things about Prairie Lakes is that it offers 27 holes. Pace of play is exceptional. This place is becoming one of my favorites.

Great weather for December

Tee off on the Red course and stayed in the fairway about 8 minutes waiting to hit my second shot. Foursome was on the green taking forever to putt and another foursome on the fairway. I was by myself. This had 5 hours written all over it. I went back to the White course and a twosome had just tee off. I played behind them and the pace was pretty good for the day. Greens and fairways were in good shape. Shot my best front nine 44 in years but blew up on the back nine. Still had a really good time and the weather was perfect 57, sunny and no wind at all.

Not a fun day, slow play and very windy

I think the title says it all, staff were wonderful, kind of expensive, but a lot was spent on remodel. Not as fun as before, even senior tees are challenging to get pars.

Good Value

Solid value for the price. Good practice facilities. Course is always in decent shape and plays pretty short. A lot of fun par 3s and challenging holes on the water. No sand. Even if you miss the fairway you have a good chance of finding your ball.

Fun par 3's

The par 3 holes are fun and challenging. Not a lot of variety to the par 4s and the par 5s were decent. Greens were consistent. No beverage cart.

Slow

Normally a great course.
Today speed of play was brutal.
We played Blue to red.
Pace was pretty good on Blue.
We finished it and went to Red.
Five some playing in front of us now and three foursomes in front of them.
Pro shop apparently messed up and started letting new people start on red or people coming off white were going to red instead of going to blue.
Regardless nobody paying attention to speed of play today.
We skipped 3 holes on back 9 to get around this mess. I Probably will go to a differ course my next time out.

I’ve been playing there going on twenty years and never get tired of it. It was in as good shape as I’ve ever seen it. Look forward to playing there again.

Great Track

How have I lived in Dallas 35 years and not played here before? I'm not sure but I'll definitely be back soon. Challenging old school layout. From the back tees these courses have some healthy par 3's. Fantastic conditioning and super friendly golf shop staff. Only complaint would be no water coolers on the course. Plan ahead especially in the summer time. Get your refreshments before the round and at the turn from the friendly girls in the restaurant.
