Pros: Great variety of holes. Creekside, wooded, open
Good concrete tee pads
Trash cans everywhere
Course is well maintained
Cons: Drives from holes 2 and 4 can cross causing a safety issue if the course is busy
Other Thoughts: This course is just a blast to play! Probably the best that I've played in south Dallas. It's pretty technical and challenging, but not so much as to make it frustrating.

Very solid course
4 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Wide variety of shots required
Multiple pin locations
Excellent tee signs and relatively easy navigation
Several dramatic tee shots
Good mix of big long holes and short birdie runs
Nice tee pads for the most part
-I liked the fact that on most of the big holes, there were nice shaped long lines, the par 4s were more than just long open shots.
-The creek on the opening 4 holes was a nice feature, if a bit frustrating to retrieve discs from.
-I liked the fact that the course really utilized 100% of the property, sometimes even going a bit too far in places.
Cons: A few of the open long field holes were bland.
Some of the holes come a little close to the surrounding houses and properties
I played the course in all longs and would have preferred a few more short-run holes, the back nine was a bit of a slog
A few holes were difficult to find
Other Thoughts: Overall, I really liked this course, it's very professional and well-maintained (aside from a bit of a trash problem on the forested sections). I like that it plays with a distinct feel on the opening 6, middle 6 and final 6, each hole also has a unique feel, without any significant repetition in shot type. If this course had a bit more wow factor on the back nine and a bit of better navigational signage this could be an even higher rating.

Awesome and challenging course
1 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Great design. Concrete teepads, wonderful signage, multiple teepads, interesting and fun but challenging holes. Nice flow. This course is gorgeous. The creeks, rocks, trees, etc. make for awesome surroundings. Its a must-play if you live around dfw.
Cons: There are some very challenging holes. I don't recommend this for novices. Hole 15...I'm looking at you. (It is a 730 foot tunnel shot hole all the way, with a steep uphill section at the end with plenty of trees and rocks in front of the basket. On a hot 100 degree day, the lack of shade at certain points can be daunting. There is a blind spot where cars come down a hill by hole #7 and #12. Be careful.
Other Thoughts: The parking lot is partially in front of tee pad #5. If you don't want your car window smashed by a big drive...I recommend not parking near it.
It is a terrific course with everything us golfers look for. A bucket list entry for sure.

Pros: lots of big long drives. in and out of trees. also a lot of specialty shots too. one of my favorite courses. chance to use every disc in your bag. mostly concrete pads one in parking lot. water comes into play. one hole you only need a midrange the very next you might need two drives to get to putting range
Cons: cant play before 2pm on sundays.

Nice Little Gem
2 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: This course has it all. Short technical shots to long open bombers. Some holes require driving to a landing zone, then making a great upshot to card a three. I have played quite a bit of courses but there were holes here that I have never seen before. My favorite hole on the course is hole 15. It requires two perfectly straight throws to get close to the basket and then a great approach to card a bird. One of the most challenging courses I have played.
Cons: There really aren't that many cons, but I do see a few holes where luck could come into play because the gaps really aren't there. Also, not really a con for me but maybe for others, no benches. It wasn't that busy when I played so it may be fine.
Other Thoughts: This is a definitely a must play when in the Dallas area. Be prepared for a challenge.

Pros: The locals call holes 1-4 "The Gauntlet". SO BEAUTIFUL!!! Starting hole #1 is a short technical shot over the creek that is uphill bending slightly right to left requiring a methodical shot as many holes will require course managment. Hole #2 requires another skill shot over the creek making it another technical hole that is short but no "gimme" as there tends to be hardly any "gimme's" here. You have to earn a bird at "the Roads" Hole #3 yet again is a longer technical shot over the creek fading left with the basket maybe 15 feet in front of the creek challenging you to layup on your approach or go for the gusto. Hole #4 is the longer technical shot of the 4 unless the basket is in the short position. The line requires you to thread the needle "so nice" and can be unforgiving if you miss your line. Hole #5 means you have survived "The Gauntlet" and rewards a right backhand with an open hyzer shot. However this is no time to loose focus as there is a mando to the right and if you go to far left your back in the abyss... keeping you on your toes. Hole #6 is finally your chance "BOMBS AWAY". Hole #7 Elevation change!!! A down hill beauty with a chance for bird. Hole #8 A Tunnel of trees straight up hill will dare you to try to reach the top but a smarter shot might be a mid range and stay in the middle. Hole #9 is a blind shot over the hill with a tight fair way the bends left to right. GORGEOUS!! Hole #10 can be played with different lines and approaches depending on your game plan. #11 Keep it long and straight and your in good shape! By now it is evident how well maintained this course is. #12 has some nice elevation throwing from the top of the hill. #13 is an island green that can be a challenge to reach in a strong head wind. #14 a signature hole that beckons you to throw your hole bag!!! "On Top of The World" and the basket some 900 ft. is incredible. #15 "The Green Mile" So beautiful no matter the time of year. This hole is a beast par 5 with a tight fair way that finishes uphill. No shame in taking a 5 or 6 here. #16 more trees and tight fairways another beautiful and challenging hole. #17 is chance to lick your wounds and even the score with a good birdie. #18 Make it out of the trees and jump for glee!! The line is left to right with a steep hill behind the basket.. nice finish!
Cons: None... the only thing i can think of is some folks have rated the course low because it is challenging but that is the beauty of it!!
Other Thoughts: Support the course by playing the minis to fund future course work!!

Pros: - Lots of variety
- Challenging for all skill levels
- Front 9 holes are exceptional
- Great parking
- Fairly easy to navigate
Cons: - Not fond of some of the holes on the back 9 (the combined distance and accuracy needed on some of the holes seem unrealistic)
Other Thoughts: Thanks to the church for providing this for public use. It's a very fun course and worth visiting when in town. Play it every time I'm in Dallas.

Warming up to it
Pros: Well maintained. Grooming has gotten better over the time I have played. Good signage. Bridges over creek. Variety of holes. Mostly easy to follow the flow. Multiple pin positions on several holes.
Cons: Some people have a tough time finding the tee box for 1. Some long pin positions unrealistic-Just long for long sake (and I am not talking about 14 or 15). Watch for snakes and some poison ivy if you are allergic but not a big issue even at that.
Other Thoughts: This is a very challenging course. I hated this course when I first started playing but played it quite a bit because it was close to me.
The care of the course has improved and so has my game which has improved my view of it quite a bit. The rough is still very rough, but there is less of it. An errant throw on most holes will be severely punished, but not as bad as it used to be. Great variety and most holes require a pretty good line. Some require almost a perfect line-1-4, 9, 15 with options, 16, 17. 18 beginning. 14 is an elevated 700 mostly open monster. The killer is 15. 700+ through trees with an elevated pin. It will kill you.
Good course that should be visited in the area. It will challenge you. I think the three courses at Cedar Hill and this course should get together and make one of the most awesome tournaments anyone has ever seen.

Pros: New Pin locations on #7 #8 are AWSOME!!
Not a better course in dfw. Beautiful course!! From ace runs to bomber holes, technical shots, elevation changes....whatever you're looking for its here... Unless you are not wanting a challenge...
Cons: Highly Addictive... Beware...If you have an addictive personality you might find yourself driving past several courses to hit "The Roads"
Other Thoughts: This course will challenge your game and make you a better all around player.... If your up for the challenge
