‭Worst course ever. The regular “members” are rude and unruly. Actually threw a ball at us from another hole that they went out of there way to get. Went in to get my money back after 9 loud and unplayable holes and was actually cussed out and threatened to “go outside!” The guy took his belt off and was threatening my kids! I will give the owner props for finally intervening and giving us our money back. There was about 15 people in their drunken group and I have never seen anything like it. Avoid at all cost or at least have 911 ready to dial on your phone. Unbelievable.

Cypress Hills is a good course, a lot of up and down hills. You will get all the exercise you want with all the different elevations.

I have play this golf course over 8 to 10 times this year.

They had a lot of rain in the past week and the greens were very wet and hard to play.

Usually the course is great to play; if they don't get soaked with heavy rains.

You will not find this course if you are using Gps. So like any guy should I called and got directions. It was easy to find once they told me where they were located.

I enjoyed this course, but I got a real good deal at golf now.... It's a fun little layout but at full price I would go to many other courses first..

Ok, i read some reviews that all seemed good so I booked a time and made the stop on the way to Shreeveport. Just to be fair, this is a perfect course for bringing an inexperienced golfer (wife or kids) as its very relaxed, never rushed and a good chance for teaching. Now, i must admit that $41 to play an absolute goat ranch on a Friday at 2:00 was ridiculous. greens were the best part although they were so dry, it was impossible to stick a shot, they were weed free and true. quiet country atmosphere was very nice as well but not enough of a factor to cancel out the price. They also sell no alcohol which is necessity to enjoy this round, so you better bring your own. In final thoughts, this would be a decent $25 weekend round.

This is the 4th time I have played this course in the past year and each time I am more impressed than the last with the greens. The rough is "Ruff"; but if you keep it in the maintained fairways it is a very enjoyable place to play.<br/> Carved out of the wilderness in the East Texas pines make each hole a pleasant sight. There are enough "Risk / Reward" hole to challenge every skill level. I'm a 68 year old 18 handicapper and bogy golf from the white tees is the norm for me. I recommend this course to anyone who truly enjoys the game of golf.

This is a very scenic and challenging course off the beaten path. While the winter has been tough on the greens, the course is overall in pretty good shape. I first played here over 15 years ago and the course has really matured well.<br/> The greens are tight, a little scalped, and full of gouges from mowers, I think. Made reading a putt a little dicey.
