I always really like this course. Staff is friendly! The only issue today is playing behind a 6-some.

Not Bad, Not Great

Played this course 22 years ago & it hasn't changed that much. Fairways were pretty hard, greens were alright. Overall, just an average course. Carts need to be updated as most are in pretty rough shape. I would recommend it but not with gusto.

Worth the drive

This course has a good layout, several different teeing options and plays challenging on some holes with tighter fairways, trees, various bunkers, undulating greens and then some holes are wide open and you can really go for it and score. The course was in good shape, some of the greens need some repair work but overall they rolled well and if you spin the ball it will dance. The driving range was closed due to heavy rain but it appeared to be in excellent condition. Practice putting green mirror the actual greens maybe a bit faster as it did feel drier than the course greens. The short game area was decent with various shots possible including bunkers. The carts lack GPS so you will need a range finder on the course as the on course markings weren't very visible or accurate.

This is one of the finest maturing courses in our area.

I sort of wish I didn't write this review because now everyone will want to see what "a real golf course" looks and plays like. Bravo for the prodigious work the grounds crew accomplished saving the greens from the freeze that all Texas courses suffered from earlier this year. Someone here has a vision for where this course is headed. And frankly, it's too good for most of us, so remember to fill your divots and fix your ball marks!
The beverage cart was making the rounds often.

Leave the putter...

Unfortunately this course is going through some major transition. We last played after the winter storm and it was in better shape. The greens are a snails pace with a lot of dead spots. I really love the challenge of this course but not for the price they are asking. I hope it gets back to normal because it’s truly a beautiful layout. Only tip you get is if your approaching a green on every hole go strong because the ball will stop on a dime. Hope it gets better sooner than later.

SOUTHERN OAKS Is making it's way back

Over the past 2 years this course has got better. Pace of play was great and flew through the Round. Price was good but the greens had just been punched and sanded so getting true roll on the greens was impossible. Wish Golf Now and the course.would.commicate when greens are punched. Once greens are ready again in a few weeks this course will.be back to top.shape.

I did all the homework......

Southern Oaks is a 108 mile round trip for me. I love the course - layout, fairness, pace of play. So before I made the trek to Burleson, I read the reviews, made sure weather would cooperate, even called the golf course. I did all the homework. The course reported 'no maintenance issues' on Monday. I arrive on Wednesday to beautiful blue skies, light winds....... and 300 tons of sand on the greens. The picture is a typical green today. Unplayable. I will give them props on the rest of the course - rough was high, fairways and tees level and soft, bunkers decent, but the greens made it hard to enjoy for a good player.

I know every course with Bermuda needs to aerate and sand. I just wish they would tell you when they do it rather than surprising you. Today, the long drive was not worth it. I will go back, but it's gonna take some time for that much sand to sink in. Disapponting.
