Good value

The pace of play was extremely slow. It took our 3 some over 5 hours to play the course. We had a 5 some in front of us that hit several balls off the tee at times and from the fairways. They lined up every putt and really took their time.
Several of the greens have bald spots and the par 3 greens are pot marked from players not fixing their ball divots. Its like putting down a gravel road at times.
The front 9 is mostly wide open and the back 9 is a little tighter and with more scenery..
If you like to drink a beer while you play be sure to bring it with you. The closest store is 8 miles.

Good value with variety of play

Front and back nine were like playing 2 different courses. Many holes were tight and challenging. A few too many blind tee shots for first time on the course

Interesting layout

The course has an interesting layout on the back nine, challenging at times but easy holes mixed in.It is a course you can score good on. The greens are well watered and soft, teeboxes are a little hard and fairways could use a little work, over all a fun place to get away and play golf

Great Scenery

The views and layout of the course are amazing! Good hole locations and challenges throughout. The course needs a few more cart paths for convenience and a few patches in some greens. Overall great time though. Must go see the scenery.

Totally turtle

What a find! Front nine is wide open with nothing special added. But wait til you get to the back nine. Wow! Elevated tee boxes, hills, hitting over ravines and chasms... Beautiful. Well worth getting out of the city to play. I'll definitely play it again.

Not worth the money

Not worth the money. Tee boxes and fairways need a lot of work the course reminds me of a paster. The greens were way to soft. Hit a pitch shot from 45 out an the ball just plugged in the green.

Perfect Day

Course was in very good shape. If there is a problem, it is the tee boxes. For the drive from Denton, it is well worth it.

Nice course with some challenging holes

Played at Turtle Hill yesterday with two good friends of mine. The staff was friendly and helpful, but we did not see a beverage cart on the course. The course has a lot of narrow fairways so if you are a long driver focus on accuracy and not raw distance on this course or you will be in the woods or another fairway the entire round. The signature hole is the 11th hole (Par 3 186 yards from White Tees) with a tee box 120 feet above the green. With the elevation change a PW or 9 iron works great. If you use a 6 iron or similar you will hit it way too long. I had my longest ever drive that stayed in the fairway, 319 yards, on the 16th hole (Par 4, 385 Yards from White Tees) which is one of the few holes on the course that a long driver can open up on without putting it in the trees. Course should appeal to both the high handicapper and the low handicapper.

Worth the drive

Played on a beautiful Saturday in February. Course was very crowded but completed the round in just over 4 hours. The layout of the front nine has the feel of a country course, wide open, no real surprises. The back nine is completely different. There are blind shots, strategic tee shot placements, and the greens are incredible. They roll true and this being my first visit, I had no idea of the level of undulation. The signature hole is the par three 11th. I dare you to keep your phone camera in check the first time you play this hole. I drove just under 2 hours to get to the course and I can't wait until everything is green so I can drive there again.

Hidden Gem!

Wonderful little hidden gem! Beautiful course, even in the rain! The only problem was a group of local boys that snuck onto the course and kept hitting into us....

Best views in all of North Texas

Ther were only four other groups on the day that we played as the temperature was just below fifty so pace of play was awesome. The Pro Rusty was super friendly and accommodating. He even gave us some tips to help my son with his chili dip. The rates were unbelievable via golf now after 1:00. Well worth the drive North. Probably gonna do it again later this week.
