Terrible Condition

This course was like playing on concrete. The fairways and greens were dry and hard as a rock. The greens were terrible. The ball bounced it’s way to the cup.

Great Course

Lots of water hazards creates a challenging course. But not the toughest I have played. I'd play again for sure.

Pace of play was far too slow for an 8:30am tee time. Greens were bumpy and poorly maintained. Sand traps were 90% dirt. More difficult than your average course, a fun play overall, but wouldn’t come back knowing about these issues.

Greens very bad shape

The putting green is basically un useable. No grass on it; except for some weed spots. They really should close half of it for 3-weeks so grass can grow then do the other side. It is truly not useable.

The greens on the course are better than the putting green but not great. They need more water and the ability to grow grass.

The golf carts are super old and seats have several places where foam is showing.

Fortunately only $60 for twilight but even that is a little high.

DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY

It should be CRIMINAL to charge what they do for a round at that goat track. The course is in TERRIBLE shape. The greens are no where near what anyone would call acceptable, with half grass half weeds, and the fairways seems like they haven't seen a drop of water in months. Look, I get it. The course needs to be open to make money in order to pay for maintenance, BUT no way on God's green earth is this course worth 70 + dollars to play. DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE STOCK PICS!!!! Save your money and play elsewhere.

Not as horrible as I was expecting. But greens definitely were bad

I played a charity tournament here so I can’t speak to the value because I did not pay normal rates for the course. I am a member at a private course in DFW that hosts a PGA tournament, and so I was not expecting great conditions after reading the reviews of this course. But honestly it wasn’t nearly as bad as I was expecting.

The good: The layout is fun, not difficult, so most golfers can have a good time regardless of skill level. Fairways had more green grass than Stonebriar CC, which I had just played a week before Trails of Frisco. Staff was friendly.

The bad: The greens were among the worst I’ve played, you cannot hit a true putt. There’s poa annua everywhere on these greens and they’re bumpier than a teenage boy’s face. The fairways, while they had a good amount of grass, were rock hard. The soil here is very compacted and could use aeration and more irrigation. The tee boxes were similarly rock hard, so be prepared to break a tee or two just trying to find a soft spot. The driving range is also not in good shape.

The ugly: The carts were functional but cosmetically awful! There are holes all over the seats, looked like the goats who live on the course chewed up the seats too.

I honestly would not pay more than $35 for a round here. There’s probably better value elsewhere and it just feels like they haven’t invested much into the actual course.

No where near the course for the money!

There's no way on God's green earth ANYONE should pay 70 plus bucks to play this course! The greens are HORRIFIC! Edward James Olmos has a less bumps than the greens. Half the tee box's are trash, and the fairways don't feel like they've seen water this year. It's almost criminal to charge people the full rate for this place right now. Don't belive me, go look at the practice putting green. The only bunker to have sand in it, is on the 18th. SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!

Course wrap up

The fairways were in great shape but the greens were in poor shape. Carts were in poor condition and in fact ran out of power at 17th hole.

Ditto

Just ditto to the last year worth of reviews. It needs to be shut down and renovated. It’s a crime they’re charging $70.

Course Conditions

Unplayable sand traps. Greens in terrible shape. Bridge construction going on. Not worth $75 for a weekend round. Highway robbery. There are better courses around for far less.

Disappointed

I usually play with some folks that live in Sachse and we usually play in that area but since I live in Frisco , they wanted to try a course near me and I selected this course, and boy were we all disappointed , greens were so bumpy and sand most traps were also not playable, we felt they should have offered a discount due to the conditions, I would not recommend this course.

Incredibly disappointed

The layout and staff are good but the course is trashed. The greens are horrific. It's just weeds. You can't putt on them. The bunkers are even worse. They're all washed out. It looks like this course was hit by a hurricane. There's absolutely no reason anyone should pay $70 to play this course.

This Course is a Disaster

The sign in the pro shop stated - working on the sand traps. They should be working on the greens too. They were essentially unplayable - dirt and weeds. The honestly should shut this course down and try to get it healthy. It is the worse condition I have seen a course in the metroplex in 30 years. The fact we paid $50 for a after 3pm round of golf is farcical. this is a solid $5 a round course. Ridiculous. Do not waste your time or money.

Disappointed!

After playing this course before, I was extremely, disappointed in the condition of the course and greens.
Granted, weather and what looked like some flooding had occurred, but the course was in very bad shape.
Definitely not worth $55 for a Monday morning. With the course in the shape it is currently in, they should offer a discounted rate until it’s back to normal.
There are plenty of other courses around in much better shape and better value for money.

NEEDS UPKEEP

We played on a Saturday morning and the maintenance crew hadn't done a thing to clean up the course from a rain storm the previous week. There was junk in nearly every fairway. The greens were the worst I have seen on any public course in a LONG time. Hardly any grass, most weeds and dirt/sand. Not worth the $70 green fee. Won't be going back anytime soon.

This course needs a ton of work

I played the course on 4/13/22 and it was terrible. The area had been hit with a massive rain storm that washed away bridges leading to greens, all of the sand in every bunker and there was dried up mud and dead fish left on the fairways. The greens were dead with the exception of a few spots of PoAnna trying to come up. This course needs to closed and the grounds crew needs to be paid the overtime they deserve to fix this course. The bunkers will need new sand because it all washed away and the course needs to be given time to heal. There is no way anyone should pay 70 for this course.

This review is not intended to say anything negative about the staff my experience with them was fine but the course needs serious TLC

You will Regret it!

I don’t write reviews except for the coutse. This is an absolute no-no. The greens are horrible and that’s putting it nicely. And it is way overprice For the conditions. Tee boxes are beat up, practice greens are beat up and driving range is beat up. It’s sad!
