Nice yet difficult

It's a nice course, but if you haven't played in a while, it's difficult. They're a few holes will alot of carry; alot of carry. The 1st hole looks simple enough, deceiving.. Have fun.. Oh, and for whatever reason the grill at the turn is closed, so bring lots of hydration..

Awesome!

This was my first time playing here and I was not disappointed! Even though it’s in the dead of summer right now the fairways, greens and bunkers were in pristine condition! I literally wanted to play barefoot in the fairways! Greens were perfect. We were paired up with an off the clock employee, Allie, and she was very helpful with hole layouts since it was our first time. Several different practice areas as well as a big concession building at the turn. Very impressive Watters Creek!

This 18 hole course is challenging, yet you can score well. Good layout, nice greens and pretty well kept. This was my second time playing here, in consecutive weeks. This will be a regular stop for me for sure. Highly recommend this course!

Ain't God Good

The course, with the exception of the bunkers, was in excellent shape, considering the previous day's and that morning's rain. Kinda frustrated that the refreshment shake was closes when we made the turn at about 4:00. Somehow, the starter paired our threesome with another twosome (not very good players) and that really slowed us down. But, as slow as we were, we caught up with a foursome on number ten. For the most part, the fairways and tee boxes were in good condition, as well as the greens. Go play!!!

Traditions Course

Last time I played here was in early spring and the condition of the course made me nervous. I will say the currently the course is in great shape. Greens have been punched recently and are recovering nicely. Some area courses are still suffering from the damage caused by the February deep freeze, Watters Creek is not one of those courses.
Now with that being said I have NEVER had a good round here. I have a real gift for finding the OB areas here. Maybe this course doesn't "fit my game" or whatever excuse people say when they don't play well. Thank goodness that they have the best practice facility in DFW! The short game area is top notch as well as the 6 hole course. So I will continue to hit the practice facility before heading out to the Traditions course in search of a good score. Cannot wait to play here again.
