Is Mesquite Golf Club good?
I like it because it is straight , simple and easy to play but there are just few trees .
Will play again
First time playing this course, friendly staff nice lay out and course was in pretty good shape. Absolutely love that they have marshals watching pace of play. Makes a huge difference keep it up
The fastest greens you ever played.
My first time at Mesquite. I read the reviews before going and was prepared for fast greens but these were unbelievable. I am extremely diligent about scoring my shots- all of them, but when the greens were this incredibly fast, if I got within 2-3 feet I was done. The 3 footers would roll right by! I couldn't hit it any softer in some cases and when EVERY ball rolled 4 feet past the hole I quickly realized they were unfair and just took my score whatever it was if I got within 3 feet. The pin placement on most of the greens was on a mound or incline as well, making your green reading skills important. The 2 guys I played with said they have never seen pins placed as difficult as they were today. The fairways were fairly soft but had some wet patches and ground under repair areas so staying out of those areas was important. I expected more ball roll near the greens but didn't get it in most cases, the ball would stop short and not roll up to the green. The one bunker I had to hit out of was as fluffy and soft as you would want, I am used to seeing gravel and hard pack but this one was nice, I actually made a decent shot on the greenside bunker. The cart paths are smooth and the tee boxes are well marked. There was no beverage cart service and they don't allow food & drink to be brought onto the course so we rented the cooler at the 19th hole and bought their drinks and re-filled with water on the course. All in all I would play again now knowing what to expect on those slick greens.
Course was in great shape. The greens were smooth and fast, and the fairways were in excellent shape as well.
Great Public Course with Greens that are Amazing
This course is not your standard Public course that is easy and has bad greens. This course is difficult and the Greens are in great shape, fast, smooth, but worth the trip.
The starter told us not to be above the hole and he was right. They had redone all the greens and they did a great job.
Staff Attitude and Course Set Up Ruin What Could Be a Great Course
The layout of this course is completely fine, but the greens are extremely fast. Faster than most country club courses I've played, which is a lot, but that is also completely fine as it’s great to see such greens at a public course. What ruins it is that the greens are very hilly, which in itself is also fine, but they choose to cut the holes on the inclines of those hills on almost every hole. This means anything but a straight uphill putt unfairly rolls yards away from the hole, turning most of your GIRs into 3-putt bogeys as putts would arc up a sidehill and then coast twice as far from the hole on the other side. I do note I played a charity tournament here the very next day and it was the first time I had seen all the holes cut on flat portions of the greens, and my guess is they wanted participants to enjoy the course and maybe come back in the future, so they didn’t want to frustrate them with the usual ridiculous hole placements.
But the worst thing about this course is the staff. They treat players like they would rather not have them touch their course at all. They have marshals patrolling every hole, which is very uncomfortable as they stalk you during your round, and rather than hiding while you hit, they stop in your line-of-sight and watch you closely. They also drive up on you while you’re on the teebox addressing the ball, which is one of the rudest thing anyone can do on a course. They also tell you not to drive the cart on most of the rough to find/play your ball, especially between any trees, which is frankly where you need your cart the most to both find your ball and decide your recovery shot. You also cannot drive your cart to the practice chipping area, which is not very close at all to the clubhouse and which allowing would not interfere with anything at all. But by far the most ridiculous thing we experienced was being lectured on how we were supposed to pick up a ball out of a hole! Note there are an excessive amount of unrepaired ballmarks from the golfers too special to repair their mark, but never a mention from the marshal-per-hole stalking each group for these selfish jerks to repair damage they caused.
Although I’ve played here many times, the treatment by the staff in both their unnecessary lecturing of ridiculous rules and their continuous stalking of each group is too distracting to want to return to this course any more. The entire round you are too distracted by wondering if you’re breaking yet another unwritten made up rule, which you’re about to be called on by the stalker following you before each shot, than to enjoy your round.
First time to play after the course re-do. Really enjoyed the new layout and the greens and fairways are well kept
Nice round up to the 16th hole until the rain came pouring down. Then I had to leave
Good challenge for any level of golfer
Mesquite is a challenging course for all types of players but allows you to score by making good choices. Greens are quick and undulating so careful reading is required. There are several risk / reward holes that will allow you to go for it or play it safe. Greens are well maintained, sand traps are in good shape as well as fairways. Staff is helpful and friendly with Marshalls to help the pace. Overall this is a hidden gem close to Dallas and a fantastic bargain.
