Byron Nelson Reshapes the N.Texas Landscape
We spent four hours playing their 18 hole golf course.
Thursday is not the optimum day to tee it up here, the old guys have
their men's league at 9 AM and that means slow play as they dilly dally on the greens making wagers.
This clubhouse and course was built in 1994 and is a great golfing venue. Matt and Eric do a fine job with members in the pro shop.
Jason with the cart valet was a great help in describing this layout.
He is one of those positive employees who welcome members.
The biggest asset here is their 84-year-old starter. Mr. Forsyth, he was amazing,
cheerful and helpful.
The course is in excellent condition, the fairways, tees, and greens are in pristine condition.
Hole #1 has the look of a seaside links course in Ireland. The fairway is broad with many berms channeling sand dunes. The green is large, slopes downhill and had the pin located in the tip.
This course was designed by Byron Nelson with so many berms
that the flat topography of N. Texas is transformed into a hilly seaside venue.
The two signature holes are #15 and #18. Hole 15 is a short uphill
right dogleg with two large trees in the fairway and woods on right and left.
Hole #18 is a Monster par five that will intimidate even low
handicappers. Your third shot will be a 185 carry over the water to an elongated, narrow, and uphill island green. Ouch!
Great day at Timarron
Had a delicious lunch before the round. All staff was very welcoming, conditions were great and pace of play was excellent. Will be a regular stop for me when in DFW.
course is challenging and course knowledge is a must
enjoyed it very much, unknown hazards for the 1st time player. course knowledge would be a must
