Another great day at WC-T

This time of year it's hard to complain about Waters Creek Traditions. It rained in the morning and threatened all afternoon which made the greens over responsive, not a bad thing though. The bunkers were a bit packed after the rain and of course no rakes due to Covid, but still played well. Fairways are great right now and roughs are plush. Two doubles on the front and still shot 80, fun day.

Great value

Very good layout, great condition and good pace of play, groups are going out 16 minutes apart which is better than other courses around. Enjoyed it, Just wish I was hitting it better as it has lots of creeks and you can lose lots of ball. Cheers

Survived the winter as a star

Your average player doesn't understand how difficult it is to maintain a course during a North Texas winter.. That don't understand the amount of work and water so it recovers in the Spring.
The staff at Watters have done a fantastic job of keeping the Traditions Course very playable.

Pace of play always slow

Really want to say I love this course. Facilities are great. However, the pace of play is just unacceptable. I’ve played the course three or four times. Mostly on the weekends. It’s not unusual for the first 9 to take more than 3 hours. Could be the course layout. Or perhaps it’s just too many tee times. If this improves I will be first to recommend. Otherwise, don’t play unless you have plenty of time and patience.
