This course has no cart girls!

Not one time in a 5 hour round did we see a beverage cart! This course could have gotten a lot more money out of our group had there been one!

Getting worse

Course has deteriorated since the last time I was here. Sand traps almost unplayable. Greens were in good shape. Cart staff didn't show up so most golfers were stressing about having a cart in time for tee time. Poor guy behind counter was busting his hump trying to do it all!

Dont waste your money

To start off our first cart windshield was broken, the second cart we got died.

Throughout the entire course, including 5 water coolers were completely empty. Oh it’s also 100 degrees outside.

Course greens and tees boxes were horrible

Course in Poor Condition

I found the course in poor condition. The putting greens were completely grass less. No pitching green for same reason. All the greens had small to large patches of sandy or no sod areas. The sand bunkers were large holes of either grey hard clay or what looked like cement sand gravel. The tee boxes were hard ground. Could not put a tee in it most of the time. Greens were not recovering from aeration that had occurred three weeks ago. Putting a line was a joke.

Water Needed

Greens need some work. Water was lacking on the course. Seems like management is waiting for the Lord to provide.

Terrible Conditions

This course layout is great, provides a challenge but is fair if you hit good shots. The course conditions and management are not so good. Starting off, there was no starter at #1 with tee times running behind and leaving a free for all at the first tee. As has been the case for some time the bunkers are hard pan dirt, appear to have not been raked in a year and are in serious disrepair. The newest issue on this visit was the greens, it was like putting on across a pasture... hit it and hope one of the several bumps your ball hit on the way to the hole knocked it online. I saw 2 golf carts having to be towed in after breaking down on the course and the wood on the old clubhouse/snack bar area is rotting and looks awful. Some serious attention needs to be paid to this once great course!

REFUND PLEA$E

Arrived 45miin early for 12:45 tee, no carts available until 10min before tee time, No organization from pro shop to 1st tee... starter was lost, allowing "comped" players to go which made 5 some in front of us, waiting on most holes. Tee boxes not mowed for many days, grass was taller than rough on most tee boxes. Course fee of $25 would have been more appropriate, Golfnow please send me a refund! If you're in DFW area, don't waste your time driving out to this course

Course conditions needs work

This course has a great layout which is fair and challenging. The course is in decent shape except for the bunkers, they are terrible and have been for the last few years. With the amount of consistent traffic this course receives there is no reason the bunkers cannot be upgraded and they have a beverage cart on a busy weekend.
