Default Dallas/Irving area courses

Need some recommendations please. I will be in the Irving/Dallas area on business in mid-January and plan to play 1-2 courses before my flight home. Where should I be playing? Thanks in advance, Andy.

Play Bear Creek before it's reduced to 12 holes for a dog park, right near the airport. Might want to try Fritz Park as well if you like more open bomber courses, Turner Park just south of Irving has some fun/interesting holes and about the most elevation change you will find in the area.

Fritz is a good course, expanded to 18 awhile back. And it's in Irving if that's where you are staying.
Founders park aka Roger lytle is closest to downtown and is a fun pitch and putt, only 11 holes
I like Turner park and I think it is one of the better courses around town.
Bear creek is popular but overrated. A cool course and it will be losing at least 6 holes soon. Right next to the airport if you are trying to squeeze in a round before your flight.
If you have time to get around town then consider checking out zboaz in ft worth or town lake in McKinney. In the past I'd also recommend trophy club and Lewisville lake park but the former has been in rough shape since the flooding and the latter has been redesigned since the flooding and I haven't seen the new layout yet. Planning to make it back to both before mid January though so I can let you know.

From what my friends have told me, a lot of trees have already been removed at Bear Creek and it loses a lot from it. Essentially, it's already "gone".

It is mostly holes 1, 2, and 13 that are affected. The rest of the course plays the same and even those three still require the same shot they always did. 13 is far more forgiving though
