Course Review and Comments

A great piece of land and could have been a great track. So tricked up and contrived its not enjoyable. It makes PGA West look as traditional as Augusta National. Shot 76 and didn't hit a bad shot all day. Played with a friend who is on the Champions Tour and multiple winner on the PGA Tour. He shot 74 and thought is was one of the worst designs he has ever seen for what supposed be a great course. Don't waste your time to drive out there or your money to play this POS. I will never play this course again, so many better options in DFW.

Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments Justin Leonard needs to stick with playing golf rather than designing golf courses. Other than 2 of the par 3s no green was built to accept a shot more than an 8 iron and that is pushing. Someone said the greens are like Donald Ross designs. Maybe DR on acid! The greens either need to be flatter or resemble something to similar to a circle or oval. No landiing area near the pin is great than a 15 feet in diameter. Pllaying from 7200 yards with soft fairway conditions made the course impossible to hit greens. To many unnecessary fairway bunkers in the middle of the strategically placed to gobble up good tee shots. The routing and hole layout is very good, but too gimmicky and contrived. There is nothing traditional about this course. If it were firm and fast so you could play it like a links course then maybe it would play somewhat fair. I played most of the top 100 in the world and this design is disappointing.
