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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

First nine was grueling . Was behind a 5some with kids. Finally got to pass at 9 then we took off . Then Marshall told us we were holding up whole course. Don't think he knew we passed them at turn and knowbody was waiting for us . Liked the course layout but the greens were really rough.

Course has great contouring and natural features, but is in awful shape. Very sparse “alive” patches of grass, ground is hard as a rock and filled with weeds, and the growth is past the point of repair regarding a difference between fairway and rough. Greens were so fast that some pins were completely unfair; the ball has nowhere to stop anywhere around the hole and you’re left with at least a 12 footer no matter where you putt/chip from. Overall, I’m sure this course looked great a number of years ago, but that time has clearly passed.

Course in average shape. Carts being driven right up to the greens and tee boxes creating new trails. Greens are hit and miss because of some little weeds that are popping up. No way to hold your line on some of the greens. Few people playing on the course today. It will be interesting to see what the course looks like when the grass (or lack thereof) comes in. Hot deals keep me coming back; without the deals, I would not be coming back at a greater price.

It's not fair to review a course played out of season, so I will focus on things that won't improve when it greens up. All the greens are tabletop greens, severely elevated and steep sloped on all sides, no safe miss at all on most holes. There is no sand whatsoever in what obviously used to be a nice amount of traps. They just let the grass grow, but it's mowed short so when your ball comes screaming down that slope after you landed your shot half a yard short, long, or to the side, It's rolling all the way in to the woods, or the creek (Which can have up to a 20 foot sheer drop to the rocks below, and can be somewhat undermined, so don't venture too close looking) The fairways tend to slope toward trouble too. The water hazards are in disrepair. Basically, the whole course looks unkempt. The greens are blazing fast, undulating, and bumpy with crabgrass.

The saddest part is that I can see what a jewel it could be with a few million dollars poured in to it. Hopefully, the City of Lancaster is reading this.
