BlackJack, no Traditions

Been playing Watters Creek for years. The title of this review is meant to emphasize how difficult this course can still be, all based on setup. Ball striking is a MUST...you can't score around this track having 24 putts and being all over the course. you gotta strike driver and wedges beyond well, gotta make putts don't get me wrong, but most importantly you MUST birdie the holes that are easy birdies, and not record doubles or triples on the tough holes. Players who hit the ball higher and with more spin will have an advantage on this course. Greens roll beautiful, the overall course conditions for January in Texas are excellent. As usual, post-COVID pace of play is frustrating. GOLF in general needs to focus on sending all the new golfers we now have thru the same lessons that those of us that have been playing for 25 years know without thinking. Don't try to play faster.........let the group PLAY THRU. This is a 4.5 hour round as it is. Don't play here if you can't break 95 for real. make that 90. Staff is great. price is right. practice facilities are WELL ABOVE AVERAGE

Greens are great, but the course design is bad

Played for first time in over a year, and I was quickly reminded why I don't play here often. The front nine is one of the worst course designs in the north DFW area. The back nine is above average. The greens were great, so kudos to the grounds crew.

Great winter greens!!!

Played for the first time. Greens are some of the best kept in the area for sure. Layout is fun and very challenging (I’m an 11 handicap). Definitely adding this to my rotation. Will be back soon

Best course in DFW (for the value)

This is my favorite course to play in DFW

-the greens are in wonderful condition
-the fairways are the best out of any course under $50, you will be hard pressed to find better fairway conditions for a course of comparable price.
-quick pace of play
-easy to get a T-time
