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.
Course in great shape, countryside, beautiful in October
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
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
First time playing here and it was worth the drive. Great setup and Hole #11 just a fantastic view and hole. Will make the trip out again.
Played this course a few times. Staff was friendlier than last few times. BYOB which was great. Course is little rough. But should be be better cause it usually is
Fun coarse. Great layout. Well worth the drive. Played several times and pace of play is always good. Staff is very friendly.
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.
Fairways could have been better
The fairways were like concrete. I lost a couple of balls due to the ball running to far
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.
Thank you for your great review regarding your recent visit at Turtle Hill! We hope to see you hit the greens with us again soon!
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.
Hello and thank you for your feedback regarding your visit to the course earlier this year. We hope you can visit us again with a fresh perspective.
The Course is in excellent shape due to all the rain everything is very green. If have ever wanted to play this course now is the time. I've never seen it this nice.
Thank you so much for the positive feedback. We hope to see you back soon! ~THGC
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.
Thank you so much for the feedback and we're so glad you had a good time! ~ THGC
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.
Thanks for coming and golfing with us! I am so pleased that you enjoyed the course, and congrats on that long drive on 16! ~THGC
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.
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.
I have played the Turtle many times and never grow tired of it. Great mix of holes and friendly staff. Go there and be happy!
