“Beautiful Golf Course, Great Layout, Disappointing Greens.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Played the course twice in a two day span, and truly enjoyed the experience. However, for this caliber of golf course to have greens in this poor of shape in May is alarming. In 36 holes I did not get a true roll on one green. Before I would play this course again I would like to see the greens in better shape.

The staff and food were absolutely great, and the food and non-alcoholic drinks being included in the green fee is a nice touch.

“Excellent Golf Facility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

The Pro Staff was great and the golf course was in good shape. The Rolling Hills around the course were very senic also,

“Formidable Challenge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

We (foursome) played this course on Sunday, April 6, 2014, 53°F (11.6°C), light drizzle to rain for the entire round. (We love golf, don't mind challenging conditions.) Cart path only golf. Dallas Cowboys themed course (even the golf carts have the scripted names of former Cowboy Greats).
(For the record, I am a Green Bay Packer fan.) The course is beautiful, well conceived and will challenge most, dependent on tee box selection. Fairways and greens were in impeccable shape! Food and non-alcoholic beverages are included with your round. Price tag is about $185, which is close to commensurate with the services included. Food at on-course snack shack was good. Staff was very amicable upon arrival. The only unfavorable detail that we experienced was after completing an agreeable round of golf, the staff was far less than efficient with regard to the care of our clubs and, their hospitality. Something that I would never expect from the Cowboys Golf Club. (It were as if they didn't want to be there.) With regard to pure golf and playing the course, I would definitely consider returning here, but not completely convinced because of our lackluster post round hospitality.

“Very nice course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

I like the concept, especially the no nickel & dime with food. Descent breakfast, lunch & snack shack.
The waitress in the restaurant was bubbly & fun.
The course itself is tough! Some very difficult holes.
It is a bit pricey but worth it. There weren't a lot of people on the course so it made it that much better.

“Great course, but not sure it is worth the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

If you absolutely hate the Cowboys, you might want to skip this course as you receive a healthy dose from the minute you pull into the parking lot. If you are a fan, can tolerate them, or just don't care, then try and play here. I was able to play for $100, which did include all of the on course food and non-alcoholic drinks you could handle, and it was also unlimited play. Sadly, it poured for hours before hand, making for a very long round, so we only played 18. I do recommend paying the extra money ($12?) for the all you can eat in the club house, too. (Great French Toast)

The course itself is in wonderful shape, and will challenge you. Loved hole #17, and par-3 uphill and over two creeks. Hole #3 with its 75-yard wide, sloping green is also a tough par-3. Hole #4 has a beautiful view from the elevated tee.

You're paying Jerry for the rights to play here, otherwise, they could knock a few bucks off the cost and bring me back. You do get what you pay for, if you are willing to pay the nearly $200.
