Relaxing

Relaxing pace while playing. I did not feel hurried or felt I hurried anyone else. The course is challenging with all the turns but it makes you rethink your approach. Hole 1 and hole 8 share a green which always throws me off and I’m not a big fan of but it works out. The greens are nicely maintained along with the fairways. Great course tucked away in Lipan.

Unique but challenging layout

The course is in great shape! The new superintendent is doing big things around there. Iv played this course a lot over the past 6 years but right now it’s at its best I feel . Not a great course for beginners FYI

Let down

After reading all the great reviews, I drove out of my way to visit this course. The course was extremely dry. The greens were soft and receptive but were a bit slow. There weren’t many holes that driver could be used on and quite a few of the holes had blind tee shots that suck for a first timer. I’d say this is a great course for people who live close but it’s not worth the drive if you live out of town

A Good Solid Golf Course

It's a long drive out there, but worth it. On the front nine, most of the holes go left; on the back, most go right or straight. Makes for an interesting layout.
Got some significant elevation changes - both up and down.
Overall, both greens and fairways were in great shape - even in hot August.

Challenging course for the average golfer

Lost a half dozen balls in the fairway. But found a dozen looking for mine. Bermuda was deep. Overall challenging layout but wasn’t to difficult for lower handicappers.
Went to have breakfast before round @10:30 but not open, then went for lunch at 1:30 and closed again. Unless you make the turn at noon you’d better pack a lunch.
No cart girls, old coolers with old water around the course. Bring your own amenities. But will go back some day

Greens are in good shape for the heat, holding well and rolling pretty true. Course has changed a lot since my last visit a decade ago, they have removed several hundred trees (and plan on removing more)... the holes by the Brazos have lost a little charm and a lot of the big oaks are gone now. Still a great course, a little more forgiving than it used to be, but the fairways are still tight. Highly recommended!
