Gentlemen,

Thank you for all your suggestions on previous posts in regards of courses to play in the DFW area. This weekend a buddy of mine and I will be doing our annual golfing trip. We plan on playing Stevens Park, Coyote Ridge and Texas Star on Saturday and then Tour 18 and either 2 more courses or replay tour 18 on Sunday.

Any other recommendations for Sunday?

Also, unfortunately, the area has a cold front coming in so it will be roughly 55 degrees over the weekend. Are the courses going to be practically empty because of these conditions? (55 for me is no big deal given that we had 10 degree weather this past week in Chicago).

Thanks in advance for your replies!

54 holes per day at different courses in DFW over a weekend?  Good luck!!

I'd strongly consider Waterchase.  It's my new favorite in the DFW area.

Thanks for the response!

I know 54 holes is a lot...I'm hopeful to be able to get through them everyday. We will definitely be golfing as much as possible.

Thank you again!

Waterchase IMO is the best golf course per $ in DFW.  I will also vote for Buffalo Creek as #2.  They are both pretty tough, too, but should not be missed if you are in town.  Waterchase #5 and Buffalo Creek #16 will literally make you pull your hair out.  They have to be some of the toughest holes in the state.  Waterchase is very cheap because Texas Star and Cowboys (awesome, awesome course, verrrrrry pricey though) are right around the corner and more popular.  Although I haven't played there, Texas Star is way overpriced and overrated from what I hear.

Stevens Park is kind of fun but not in fantastic shape and really, really short.  A better option for my money would be Cedar Crest not too far away from there, and it is in very good shape usually with a lot of fun holes.

Tangle Ridge is fun but a little too pricey for its shape, and Tierra Verde is in the same boat, too.  They are still great courses if you don't mind slightly overpaying.  If you really want to do an amazing course, drive out to Possum Kingdom and play there at the Cliffs.  I haven't actually played it, but it consistently ranks in the top Texas courses.

Last recommendation, if you want just a downright silly difficult course, I would recommend Woodbridge.  The greens are so unrealistically difficult that playing the course is almost comical.  People that love a challenge will enjoy it.  Slope and rating don't really reflect just how impractical that course is IMO.

If you are trying to get 54 holes in, stay away from Stevens, Tangle, and Woodbridge as they are very slow.  Waterchase and Buffalo are always lightning fast in terms of pace of play, which only help their case for best courses in DFW.

I use this for all of my golfing adventures.  Some of them have been way off in ratings, but the majority are spot on.

Just played Bridlewood on the North side of Lake Grapevine this week.  Great course--the greens were really firm and rolled extremely well, and the layout was good and in very good condition for DFW in July.

Oh, and they had the hands-down hottest collection of cart girls I've ever seen at any course.

    • The upside of no grocery workers is that we can go through the line and not have to pay at check out.  Free food!
    • Grocery workers were considered essential early in the pandemic, more so that educators.    I'm glad educators will be moved to the front of the line but I still believe that grocery workers are essential.  
    • I would still argue that most people that are passionate about soccer (the world's most popular sport) aren't on twitter.    Have you been to a pub in a foreign country watching a soccer match?    It's crazy and full of emotions. 
    • Many, many years ago, I cut my left pinkie at work.  I didn't think it was anything serious, no real pain.   I was headed on vacation the next day.   Two week later and I still couldn't straighten the finger.   The tendon had been cut.   Because it happened at work it was a Workman Comp claim and I heard all kinds of crap from the boss and the medical department.   The shop doctor tried to convince me that I was too  old (26) to have the surgery and the finger would be fine since I wasn't in any pain.    I had the surgery and they placed a pin in my finger from the middle knuckle to a little past my nail.   It was irritating but not painful until they removed the pin w/o any anesthesia.     The hard part was the PT.   I didn't have any and worked with the finger myself.   Arthritis has caught up to some of my fingers but still vividly remember the PT.
