Al-Twin Wells

After booking the reservation, when I went to the course i found out it was closing Oct 1st, for the next year + for extensive renovations. The city of Irving is taking it over. Because of this, the the course has not been maintained for the last several weeks/months. Greens were long and unkept. Plowed up dirt in some of the fairways. Sand traps overgrown. Not watered recently. This is why it was such a good deal. Can't say that I blame them, this close to closing it.

Fairways and Rough No Transistion

For the price it was worth my time; however, the grass for the 2nd and 3rd cuts were just weeds and the fairways were recently mowed with clippings remaining in the fairway. I had several shots just get lost that on a normal course would have been excellent.

I lost nearly 15 balls on this course over 16 holes and they were well placed shots, but how long can one spending looking for a shot that would be sitting up on a normal course, but was lost in the weeds 2 feet off the fairway?

Unless this place improves I will not return. A $15 round cost me $35 with the lost balls.

I guess there's no sand in the area as the bunkers were ancient.

Refining your game

Great course to work on your game. Tee off at 6:30am, played 18 holes with no pressure from anyone behind to be done by 8:45am. Back 9 is in better shape than the front 9. The bunkers are in terrible shape, basically grass has grown and covered most bunkers.

"Cow pasture" golf, Worst shape ever, don't waste your money

I heard this used to be great in the old days.

What happened?

Ant hills on the green, burnt greens.

Doesn't look like anyone cared/cut this course in the last 2 weeks.

Bunkers has overgrown weeds, not sure it's still a bunker.

Has large picnic are to hold tournament/gathering. Club house large enough, etc. Good location near loop 12, but the course was in horrible, horrible condition.

Not coming back here.

So sad!

Cow pasture golf

I have played on some pretty bad courses but this one takes the cake. Tee boxes not mowed, some were not even marked so you had to guess where to tee off from, fairways had basically potholes scattered about, more weeds than grass on most fairways, ant hills scattered across the fairways and greens, greens burnt and covered with weeds. I lost two balls in the middle of the fairway. Pace of play was great because there were very few golfers on the course so there was not much hold up. I only gave value for the money 2 stars because due to a hot deal and a $10 off coupon i only paid 3 bucks to play. Had I paid 10 bucks or more to play this course i would have demanded my money back. This course needs a lot of work. it has potential just needs a lot of money and care to get it where it needs to be.

It is what it is

The course is in terrible shape. The "sand" traps have very little sand and very large weeds. They are over grown and easy to miss so the fact that they are not taken care of doesn't come into play much. The course is in similar shape. The greens are not well maintained and the course is flooded anytime it rains.

This last outing the front 9 was closed so I played the back 9 twice. I like to play the course when I am low on time or do not want to pay much. Almost everyday they have a $10 round. I would never pay more than that for this course. I have never had an issue with slow play either because nobody is playing here. My record for the full 18 is 1 hour and 55 minutes.

I would not recommend this course for a penny over $10 and keep the expectations low.

The Worst golf course ever

I quit after nine holes. This was the worst course that i have ever played on. You could not tell the fairways from the rough and greens had not been cut in weeks. The entire course was over run with weeds. The mosquitoes where on a mission. I have bites all over my body. My cart felt like it was going to give out.Its a shame because it looks like it was a nice track in the 90s. Sorry to say but dont waist your money or time.

Poor shape

Course has been let go. Daisies in the fairways, weeds in the "sand", grass growing over the holes, etc... Twin Wells has never been a top notch course, but its really bad right now in a time of the year where it should look shiny and new.

Very dissapointing

When I started golfing I played this course often, it was never a crown jewel, but it had a hint of a fairway and average greens. I believe this course was closed due to flooding over the last year and half the course was shut down. I booked a tee time to bring another new player to the game and it was quite dreadful. The entire course is grass/weeds. Sunset GC use to be the place to go hack around and every lie was the same regardless of where you landed, but that title now is equally shared by Twin Wells. The course was a ghost town on this particular Saturday. I was expecting to take 4-5 hours as I use to back then, but I finished it well under three hours and could have forgone the last few holes as I could not wait to get out of there. The greens all all dirt for the most part. Bunkers are now gravel like. The city needs to strongly consider either shutting the course down or dropping several million into it to bring me back.

course is in bad shape

Fairways were not taken care of, it was like hitting out of the rough. Greens were in terrible shape. Very disappointed in the conditions of the course. Only the back nine was open and had to play it twice. If the course is in this bad of shape it should have been closed.

An Irving Embarrassment

Thought I was getting a deal at $10. Felt I overpaid by $8.49. Only the back nine was playable-(actually 81/2). Number 15 was moved up to within 95 yards. Trash every where! What a HUGE e3mbarrassment for the City of Irving to display to it's residence and out of town visitors. I hadn't played this course in about 2 years due to it's continued decline but for $10 thought give it another chance. PLEASE, please close this course, drop a minimum of $3 million into it, and make it a part of Irving we can once again be proud to say come play Twin Wells. I will not return until a major renovation takers place. That or turn it into a landfill.
