Starter needed

I would love to see this course have a starter or enforce starting times. As soon as we Teed off the group behind us went causing them to be right behind us feeling rushed the entire time. There was a group in front of us so we did not have them play through as we were already waiting on them. We cleared 9 and got lunch so they could pass us, only to have a solo golfer on our butts the entire back 9 once again feeling rushed. My girlfriend picked up most of her swings because she felt rushed. Greens were in decent conditions, for the price the course it in good condition.

They double booked a bunch of tee times. They blamed it on golf now. Who knows.

A Real Life Goat Farm!

Yes! They even have the goats to prove it!
You have to do more than paint the greens green. Now I have green golf balls!
You should water the course, even in the winter. You should put down a green winter grass on the tee boxes and fairways. Signage: More than once we just got lost trying to find out where the next hole was. Did I mention that they do not allow drivers on the driving range? Don't attempt to find it on your own, because you never will. Ask for directions and get your GPS fired up, because you will need it.

I hope this course survives, but I don't see how. These were the roughest conditions I have played in about ten years. That was when I played Los Rios in Plano and Oak Hollow in McKinney. Now I have a third course that has been scratched off my list.

Poor couse

5.5 hrs to play 18 is unacceptable. Extremely slow pace. Tee time was 11:07, didn't tee off til 11:30ish, finished little after 5. Cart girl was super sweet, but needed two bc course was too busy.

Doug’s review

It’s not the best course around DFW but it is very convenient and the greens are nice. No bunkers on the course so you better know how to pitch the ball or bump and run. It’s not a long course but there are a couple of holes that you can get into some serious trouble on. Take your time and plan your next shot.

Hardpan

It’s hard to believe an afternoon tee time was over $35 during a week day. This is my 3rd time playing here this year, figured maybe by late summer it would be in shape, and it was not so. The greens were rolling about a 5. I am not joking. Slowest greens I have putted on this year. But still they were rock hard, just seems like they haven’t been mowed. Hard to gauge any short game shots like that. Going from lag putting to short putts is frustrating. I think the fairways may actually roll a bit faster. Having said that, it’s actually hard to tell where fairways end and rough begin because, well, it’s all pretty rough. Clumps of weeds and cracked hardpan ground litter the space between tee and green. I’m not joking, you see dust fly when your ball hits the fairway. Never liked all the false edges around the green either. It’s not done in a “pinehurst” manner it’s more of a homemade look if anything. I just can’t see myself ever going back unless this place does a complete 180. I wish I could use lack of rain as an excuse but no other course in this area is this poorly conditioned. Save your money and go somewhere else if you can.
