Cameron Beast and Lion's Temple should probably get some honorable mention. I forgot about Z-Boaz, too. Man I gotta get to Dallas for some golfin'...

1. Selah Creekside
2. Selah Lakeside
3. East Metro
4. Roy. G
5. Circle C/Austin Ridge (dead even in my book).

Obviously I'm a little central Texas biased but that is where I live and play. Would love to hit up DFW and Houston area soon.

PS - Why no love for East Metro in the poll......I call Shenanigans!

Yes that's my bad on East Metro. You like Roy more than Circle/Ridge huh? I just don't think it has the signature holes the others have. It's fun, though. I play it almost every Saturday.

Selah is obviously in a class of it's own, not much comparison to anywhere else in the state or country for that matter.

That being said, if it were a vote on the entire park/experience, then Lindsey Park should be at least included in the conversation for top 3 locations in the state. Now, I admit I'm a little biased because it's my home park (I have played most of the DFW courses and several around Austin), but Lindsey Gold is accompanied by two more very good courses. There are few places that you can go and access 3 courses (especially of this quality) from one parking lot. In order of difficulty (hardest first):

Lindsey Gold = Dogwood (championship course in the woods)
Lindsey Red = Cedar (Long, fun, crazy huge 3-tier limestone pyramid)
Lindsey Blue = Hickory (2 big holes, but not as long overall, easiest in the park, still very fun)

All 3 have concrete tee pads and either disc catcher or mach 5 baskets. Dogwood has one set of tees, with multiple pin placements on all but 3 holes. Cedar has one set of pins, except for 2 holes with alternates, with long/short tee pads on all but 2 holes. Hickory has 5 holes with alternate pins and long/short tee pads on all but 4 holes. The park is well taken care of, there's food and convenience stores close by, and you could easily play an entire weekend and not throw the same hole twice. (especially if you get lucky and get to play both Dogwood configurations, although they usually only get switched every couple of months) If you play a tournament here, there's a good chance of getting to play both sets of pins if you play adv or open. This place should be on every out-of-towner's radar if you're going to be anywhere close to Tyler. We're right between Dallas and Shreveport, about 2 hours south of Selah, and about 4 hours north/northeast of Austin. I'd be happy to answer any questions.

Cheers,
Will

Unfortunately, I have not made it to Selah yet. Sad, being a TX native and all...

1. Shawshank
2. Austin Ridge
3. Circle C
4. Snow Farm (not on the list, but I love it there)
5. Turner

That's my mood today - I think any of these can switch positions and a bunch of others could take the #5 spot from Turner IMO.

I think one of the most underrated is crowley bicentinnal dgc. It doesn't get the foot traffics that zboaz and veterans in Arlington gets. But I think it uses some of the best elevation changes. It is also a park where you will need more the. One or two type of shots. I have decided sometime this summer when I have a lot of daylight to work with is to do the best of Dfw and try to hit bicent zboaz veterans turned park and bear creek. Which all 5 of those are extremely great courses. Or maybe exchange two of those courses for cedar creeks two. Either way those 7 can all be high on the list

I agree with that. The pine trees are so much better than the cedars in Austin. Austin is rocky and cedar while Tyler is red dirt and pines, which I definitely prefer. There is so much good land up there it's absurd. I would love to open a destination DG Ranch with an onsite brewery and BNB. Now all I need is that right lotto ticket to make it happen.

I will be playing every tournament possible up there this year. I played War of the Roses and Piney Woods Open last year. Anybody that goes near Tyler must play Lindsey Park. Three GREAT courses.

Keep me posted if you get that right lotto ticket! Thanks for the kind words about Lindsey. We're having an Ice Bowl on the 19th this month, Kevin is in the process of getting approval for War of the Roses II at the end of July, and I fully expect Jeremy and DD to come back for PWO X in November. (and I expect over 200 players this time) Spread the word!

Roy is slightly above those two simply because I have played it more often and had more memorable rounds. I really need to play Austin Ridge as I haven't since concrete pads were put in. Probably would bump it up.
