warm January day

We had a great weather day to get out of the office and play golf. Course was in good shape. Tees and fairways had good dormant grass and the greens were rolling very true. Pace was a little slow (4:40) but that's pretty much the norm these days on public tracks. I was paired up with three other guys - two were allowed to be single riders but I was asked to pair up. Why? The starter was pretty surly about his carts and when we were allowed to head to #1. Great practice facilities here if you have the time to use them.

This is the only course I've ever encountered that requires the purchase of practice balls to use the chipping green. You can't practice using your own balls. You can't even buy range balls and use them for chipping before going to the range. No, it has to be two different kinds of balls.

Starting this way before even getting to the first tee just makes the whole course feel unfriendly. I'll play it sometimes when I don't have any better options, but it's a long way from my being my preferred place to play.

Great place to play when in Allen Tx

Great track, loved the layout and the condition was fantastic some of the best greens I have played in the area.

Tee boxes and fairways were also great fully recovers from Ice storm Ida.

Will play it often when visiting my son and his family!

Nice day for golf

Play here often. I enjoyed my round and the course. Nothing bad to report. Always find this course a challenge even after doing it almost weekly. My lease favorite hole is #6, but I doubt I am alone on that :)
