A Saturday in February with temps in the mid-30's and the wind blowing 25 MPH made for an interesting round on a course that I haven't played in almost 15 years. In the time since I last played it, the course has underwent an upgrade and the clubhouse as well. $40 for a weekend 0900 golf tee time. The course is short - less than 6200 from the tips but the value is in shot placement on this course as the hills and valleys will drive errant shots to places that are not much fun to get out of. All of the par 5's are reachable for a mid-handicapper or better. The par 3's play longer than the card - I would say that this is so because of the lack of trees and other around them making them extremely susceptible to the wind. The greens are tiny so it would be important to have a nice wedge game. For winter play they were about average - quick but not overly so, bumpy, and covered in the typical dot pattern left by clueless golfers who refuse to fix ball marks - lazy and inconsiderate. The general area surrounding the course could be nicer but I didn't hear gunshots or see anyone that could be considered dangerous - I wouldn't be too worried about having an issue while playing. So, finally, I would say that I like this course as it challenges all phases of the game not from a power perspective but from the accuracy and game management portions of your game. If you've read my other reviews, you will understand that I don't give out stars indiscriminately and that I consider three stars to be a plus. This course is a solid 3 and may go higher if the conditions in the spring improve it.

Nice course but if you plan on going based on an email you recieved you might want to call ahead and make sure they will honer what they advertise. They wouldnt honer the one I showed them. It stated "this week unlimited golf and cart for $20". When I get there they tell me its for a certain day after 5pm. With sundown being around 7pm, how much "unlimited" golf can you play in 2 hrs? Also dont leave any valuables in you car as the course is located in the middle of the gheto and after my round returning to my truck there had been several cars had been broken into which would explain all shards of glass I seen all over the parking lot when I got there. Lke I said it is a nice course but I wont be back, Im going to Keeton Park where I dont have to worry about my truck being broke into and can enjoy my round.

There are some scary parts of Dallas around this course. The course itself is located in a minority middle class neighborhood. The facilities are first class. The staff was very friendly. The food was great!(They have fried catfish baskets)The course was in great shape even in December. I usually golf in the Fort Worth area, but this course is well worth the drive.
I would rate this course in the top 10 in the DFW area (number one in value!)

This course was tremendous! Incredible value. Over 60 and you play for $12! (cart is an extra $13) I don't understand the "neighborhood" comments. It is surrounded by very nice, well-kept middle-class homes. But back to the course: first class Bermuda tee boxes, fairways, greens. Easily one of the top municipal courses I've ever played with regard to fixing ball marks and divots. The regulars are justifiably proud of this course and take great care of it. Bunkers were average, but then they are seldom better. Lots of elevation change and virtually every hole was good or great. My brother and I had a 3pm tee time and were off the course 2 hours and 40 minutes later. No one in front. We caught a group at 14 and they let us through. One of the most fun rounds I've had in ages. D.A. Weibring's renovations were outstanding. Nice new clubhouse, grill, and pro shop. Will definitely play there any chance I get. (Used it as a tune up for Colonial in Ft. Worth the next day).

If this course were in a nicer neighborhood it would command $40-$50 green fees. The staff will beat you over the head with reminders that the 1927 PGA Championship was contested here, but what makes the course worth playing is the 2000 redesign by D.A. Weibring. Despite its "pedigree," CC had become a rather ordinary municipal course in a pretty rough section of town; the facelift brought it back to life. An unusual layout that features six par 3s and five par 5s; lots of elevation changes and some really challenging greens. Superb value for the money, but not a course I'd feel comfortable playing on a twilight or sundown fare.

Nice course, but the neighborhood is really dangerous. We heard gun shots at we were finishing #18 around 7:45pm and the parking lot was not inviting. Some one was getting their car towed by a wrecker and they didn't have enough money. There was a lot of yelling and shouting going on, we felt fortunate to get out of there.

Great course for the $. From the tips, this course plays very long and most of the holes are difficult at best. Always in good shape!

This is the Bomb!

I've played this course since before the renovation and can tell you it plays like no other. This course has real character and will challenge you to drive big, chip accurate, and putt precise! No doubt since it's pedegree goes back to Tillinghast and the 27 PGA championship. It truely smacks of a byegone serious country club golf era. The views of downtown are awesome and the terrain is nicely rolling. I have taken several friends for their first round here and they all left awed by the course and ambiance. The city has done a great job here preserving the grand old dame of Dallas golf... BTW hole #1 is my favorite/605 par 5 dogleft right...come on..!

How often can you play a Tillinghast course for $38 with cart?

Since the recent multi-million dollar renovation, this is really a great place to play. From several places, there are great views of the downtown Dallas skyline. This course hosted the 1924 PGA Championship, won by Walter Hagen. With the addition of several lakes, a driving range and improved conditioning, this course is definitely worth the short drive from downtown. The driving range was greatly needed since the first hole is almost 600 yards long and was really brutal after getting out of the car, tying your shoes and taking a couple of practice swings. It requires a good drive, a long second to reach the dogleg, then a wedge to a severely sloping green. #2 is a sharp dogleg right that cannot be cut unless you carry a chainsaw in your bag. #3 is a straightforward Par 3. #4 is a long, slight dogleg right Par 4 and #5 a mirror image coming back the opposite direction. #6 is a mid-length Par 3, uphill. #7 is a reachable Par 5, with two great shots. It runs along the road and has OOB the entire length. #8 is a short, downhill Par 4 with an approach over a creek. #9 has been redesigned as a Par 3 to accommodate the new driving range (used to be a Par 4). #10 is my favorite hole, a reachable, downhill Par 5. #13 is adjacent to #10 and is a short, downhill Par 4. #15 is a long Par 3 with a very small green. #17 is my least favorite hole, an uphill Par 3 which, depending on the pin placement, can be a blind tee shot. #18 is a great finisher, with a large green and a wide fairway. The only negative is that it plays into the setting sun. With hte new clubhouse and upgraded course, this course is an exceptional value for the money.
