overpriced

for $60 I expect GPS, towels, tees, ice and water in the cart. just a few little cha-ches, you don't get at the $35 level. seems like all the courses have taken full advantage of the pandemic and raised prices a lot!

Excellent condition…But…

Purchased an online t-time. We got to the course and were told the greens had been punched/sanded that morning, so they were super sandy. They did roll pretty true. Billy the cart guy was great, the guy in the pro shop not so much…

Good Shape

The greens were soft and receptive, but fast. The fairways looked pretty good, and even the rough was not bare or dirt in most places. It is a tough layout and really challenging for anyone who has not played here regularly.

GHD Review

Course in great shape even with all recent rain. Plush fairways and greens in great shape. Bunkers as good as can be expected given the rain. Last par 3 needs directions on how to get to the green given the construction.

Best deal in the Metro Plex

Don't want to brag on this course too much. Otherwise I won't get the tee times I have had in past. Great shape. Good course. Great price!

The Trinity River puts the River in Riverside...

The Trinity River puts the River in Riverside---several holes on the back 9 had portions that the Trinity River has reclaimed as it were, through flooding and eroded banks...but it's ALSO what makes this course really cool and pleasing to the eye (mine at least). The course design is dictated by the meanders and river bends and has undulations that reminds me of a Links style course.

The tees and fairways were in good shape (which is still a rarity for the DFW area due to February's ice/snow), and the greens were in great shape. The bunkers (as is everywhere) could use a little work aka better drainage but overall the course was in really nice shape.

It's a bit of a 'target' course---fairways are narrow, the par 4's aren't that long (I hit 3 wood off the tee most of the day and was in good position to attack pins---driver just seemed to invite hazards) and the greens are particularly small--more narrow than long, and so you have to pay particular attention to not short-siding yourself---and finding the middle of the fairways.

I dug it, it was challenging without being too hard, great condition, beautiful day, and lots of wildlife/views of the river. For those who care about such things, the Cart girls came by 2-3 times per 9 and had a really convenient outdoor stand to pick up snacks and beverages between 9's---really handy!

I recommend it!

Overall good!

The course is challenging and in good shape. Only problem was flying red ants on the front nine, but regulars say that’s unusual, and short-lived. Very enjoyable and the staff is great!
