Very nice course

The course is in very good shape. All greens are elevated; and the greens are in very good shape and rolled true. A very nice challenging layout. For wintertime it is worth the drive.

Great greens

The greens are great. All are raised up which makes them play more difficult but roll smooth. Whites are a little short will play blues next time. Conditions were average but value was great.

Not worth the drive

Not worth the drive to Lancaster from Dallas. It had rained a lot, and the course was muddy, but playable. Country View just didn't have anything really hard about it.

We are sorry to see that your overall experience was anything short of 5 stars. We appreciate your patience as the course has received a lot of rain this peak season. As the course continues to transitions into the hot summer months, we hope you'll give us another try in the near future.

Fun layout in desperate need of maintenance

Fun layout but needs real maintenance. Greens were slow, needed mowing, had some weeds. Tee boxes needed mowing. But I'll be back because the layout is fun and can be challenging.

Coure not maintained

The course is rundown. The tee boxes were not mowed and the greens were slow and beat up. Looks like the only water being lut on course is via rain. I was very disappointed in the condition of the course.

Getting better

I play this course weekly. Fairways have grown in but the greens haven't quite caught up yet. Maintenance is working diligently to get the course back into good shape and have posted signs on the carts and around the greens and tee boxes that you should not drive a cart literally 2 steps from the green or right next to the tee boxes. That said, the course is highly playable and few people are out during the week so the pace of play is excellent. Sometimes there is no one in sight on the course. You need all the shots here because some holes are easy and some will challenge your ever-lovin' nerves. For the $$ you will love it.

Just needs TLC

This course has a very nice challenging layout. All greens are elevated which requires good shot making Else you will get to work in Your pitching shots. Most of the Tee boxes needed to be mowed and the greens were not in good shape. The greens were better on the back 9. The greens rolled fast. With improved greens and improved tee boxes I would recommend the course.

Sad to see the greens in such poor shape. They used to be fantastic but are really bad. Still had a good round and a great day. It's a fun course. Right now it's lush and green and is still seems to be away from everything.

as stated by previous reviewres this course was one of the best in Dallas (hard to walk due to elevation changes) but now, for lack of better words, it is a dump. per the pro shop the city still owns the course but it does have a new manager and by the looks of it the new manager has no idea or just doesnt care what shape the course is in. right of the bat you can see what you are in for by looking at the putting green. also 18 green is easy to see from the club house and you can see it looks just as bad as the practice greens. there are several other courses in the area that are in much better shape for about the same price (again i walk so i am going by the walking rate). lets hope the city see's the reviews and gets a new manager in there who knows what they are doing to ge this course back into the great shape it was in before.

do not recommend

have not played this course in a while. last time i played the course was in good shape.

do not know what has happened since, maybe the course is under new management.

but it is in terrible shape,not worth the price that was paid. got a hot deal price on golf now for $15.00 and it was not worth what we paid. should have asked for our money back. will not play there again unless the course condition are greatly improved.

Beginners welcomed

Course has become go to beginner's course. Greens used to be top 10 in dfw but don't know what happened. Course tee boxes and fairways in sub par condition but playable. Looks like too many "golfers" tearing up the track. Too many Cart tracks left from drivers driving up to the green. Maybe since it has elevated greens and tee boxes lots of lazy golfers driving where they please. Lower end golf course hanging on to dear life.

Golf now price is the difference

Course still coming in from winter. Fairways hard with lots of run. Carts are driven up to the first cut of the greens, therefore there will be crusty conditions on approaches later in the spring/summer. No marshals. There appears to be some maintenance being done now because in the last few months there was none. Few people out so pace of play was good. Hope the new mgmt plans to resuscitate this course.
