Warm day brings good scores
The most challenging putting greens in the area. Cut to precision for weeks. So bring your putting game. The carry is respectable. Lots of great risk reward holes on the front nine....
Nice course - extremely walkable
This is a good course to walk and play. While it is generally flat with fairly straightforward fairways, they are often tree-lined and challenging. Often, there is a cross wind that can make play even more challenging, and there are a few water hazards along the way.
The pace of play is very good.
One of the best kept Munis around
The people at Poplar keep the course in great conditions. It's not Harding or Pasatiempo "great" but its not $200-300 either - it's $39 at weekday primetime to walk. Greens are consistent and smooth. Fairways are clean and maintained. Easy, open layout but that wind makes it tougher in the afternoons. Holes 2, 18, 16, 13, 3 and 11 are no slouches. And everyone at the course and the restaurant is fantastically accommodating. Go out and have a great time on and off the course at Poplar Creek without blowing through your entire quarter's golf budget in one go.
GOOD OLE Poplar!
Poplar creek is a great course if you haven't played in a while or what ever skill level your playing. Good condition fairways and greens, friendly staff. Not too long great for walking! APastor
Good condition and putting green are great
it's a typical flat fairways type municipal GC, nice maintained fairways and not too crowded on weekdays.
overall good course to play and convenient location
Wife's first time golfing ruined by teaching pro
Decided to take my wife here for her first time ever golfing. We were both so excited to introduce her to the game. Long story short, the teaching pro here ruined our experience and the only reason for the extra star was that the rest of the staff were very understanding and apologized on behalf of this person.
On to what happened...
10 minutes into what started off as a great day on the range, the golf pro drives right up to us (with his mask only half on by the way) and tells us that I'm not allowed to give her tips... Instead that I should go to the next stall and just hit balls. He even had the gall to say that I was "disrespecting golf teaching professionals" referring to himself.
It didn't help that (1) we saw other groups doing the SAME thing down on the other side of the range during our time there and (2) this was said to a person of color. Not saying this is a racial incident, but it's certainly not a good look when you're talking to the only people of color on the range and holding what seems like a double standard.
When we do end up getting her lessons, it will absolutely not be here with this golf pro.
