Nice Course, No its not the course from the movie "Tin Cup". I played on a VERY windy day! This course is made up of gently rolling hills and scattered trees that obviously cant block any wind. not to many sand bunkers but they do have a good amount of beautiful water holes that add to make a nice scenery and a slight challenge to the course. Check the weather before you go, if they say 0-5 mph wind that means 10-15 at Tin Cup. But I enjoy this course overall...nice greens and average fairways. Little Pricy for Location (Small Town) no discounts for military :(

Decent course. Everyone says it's an up and coming course. I haven't played it in a while, last time i played was on a coupon as well. I remember the prices being a little higher than the abilene courses, but the course was in good shape. Rolling hills and wide open holes make this course easy to play. The course does have low lying power lines running through the middle of the course that come into play on at least one hole. They do not have souviner golf balls, which they need to get for my collection if they are reading this. I'll come running back when i hear they have souviner balls.

This course has come a long way in the last few years and is worth playing at least once. I dont think they will have many repeat customers because the price is a little too high for this area. There are other courses in the area that are much nicer than this one for the money, but its worth playing once.

Getting better all the time! A few more years and this could be a great track.

This is one of the better deals in the area. I golf at a lot of courses in the Abilene area and by far I am getting more "bang for my buck" at the Tin Cup in Merkel Texas. The fees are nominal in comparison to other courses in the area. Very well maintained and a pleasure to golf. I highly recommend this course to anyone.

The new Tin Cup

Played yesterday. It is a beautiful newly redesiged course with lots of water and grass. Not much in the line of refreshments in the club house. The $30.00 / $35.00 fees are just totally out of sight for the average golfer in Merkel and the sorrounding area. Like most things, it is being geared to those of means, out of reach of the average working class. I played on a freebee coupon so I can say I played there once.
