Great track, and worth the extra few bucks!
Course in great shape tee to green.
Very fast greens but receptive to approach shots with a lot of breaking putts. White sand in both fairway and green-side bunkers. Started right at tee time and pace of play was okay for weekend.. GPS carts we’re helpful. Cart girl on course with food/beverage station by hole 7. Will definitely play again.
This course is great for a quick after work round
Great course with their discounted tee time rates. Don’t think it’s worth the full price of $130 until the course conditions are better maintained. Great that food is included in the green fees though.
Always enjoy playing Cowboys
Staff very pleasant. Course was in good shape. Carts and GPS were perfect. Can't beat the value price of $70.
Great Escape and Smiling Faces
Just want to send my appreciation to all of the Cowboys’ staff in how they offered an outdoor sanctuary that was safe, compliant, and rejuvenated the soul under the current circumstances. Thank you all!
Great place to be
Had a an awesome time playing there. Amazing course conditions considering it was late February.
Worth the Money
I typically can't justify spending as much for a round of golf, but Cowboys is worth every penny. The course is in great shape year round, and you just can't beat the all-inclusive set up they have. Make sure you arrive early enough to take advantage of free breakfast before you tee off and again for lunch after the round! I'd go back just for the jalepeno dogs at the comfort station on hole 8!
VIP Experience at Cowboys
For years I've been wanting to try Cowboys. Finally, my buddy scored a deal to get the VIP package for $99. At that price, it's a steal. 18 holes of great golf and food/non-alcohol drinks are included.
On this particular day, there was an hour frost delay so our tee time was an hour late making our chances of finishing before dark pretty slim.
The course is a good blend of challenging and playable. There are some fun short par 4s (always my favorites), and most of the par 5s are nearly reachable. Even if you're not a long hitter you won't be miserable.
The conditions were very good. For the most part, the fairways are welcoming and the rough isn't too bad. The greens are where the challenge comes in. They are fast and slippery. #3 is a beautiful mid-length par 3 over water... the green is wide and has multiple tiers side to side. If you are in the wrong spot, it's an easy 3 putt. I was on the wrong side of the hole and missed a 3 footer for birdie.
Pretty much everything about this place is first class. If you don't get a deal, it is a bit pricey, but if you aren't in Dallas very often I think it's worth it. There are a lot of great courses in the DFW area, but Cowboys is really something special: both the course and the experience.
Impressive but a few issues to be corrected
First time to play here and was impressed for the most part about this entire facility. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The course was in tip top shape and greens and fairways were well kept.
Unfortunately they need a marshal out here. I was behind a group of 6 total players, not four that were playing best ball. So it took some time. Finished right at dark and was quite surprised we made it that far. Also the cart girl only dropped by once at hole number five.
I will still go back but for the money you would expect pace of play and cart assistance to be addressed. Otherwise the course and especially the food is quite amazing.
Could be perfect....
We paid 70 for a round. While the layout of the course is very nice and the topography is great the condition of the course was very poor. The greens were very soft and most of the tee boxes were in really bad shape. It is a public course but for the money they charge I expected much more. The pace of play was awful and had we not skipped the last few holes it would have been a 5.5 hour round. I would have been upset if I paid the 200 via the course website. I would play this again but it would have to have a significant improvement in the shape of the course. If you are in Dallas and want to play I would recommend it at a fair price.
I’m far from a Dallas Cowboys fan, but this was a great day. The staff were friendly and very professional. The facilities were first rate.
The course was in very good shape and was a lot of fun to play. The greens were showing the obvious extensive play over the summer and the ball mark damage was everywhere.
I’m glad I played it and recommend others play it for the novelty.
Course is excellent and in great condition. Negatives - only saw the drink girl twice and both times it was within 150 yards of the halfway house. Also, somehow we were behind a fivesome on a Friday morning. Never saw a marshall. Pace of play was horrific. Positives - staff was great. Facilities are awesome.
