Played a lot of rounds out here in the early years after it first opened. A Greg Norman design that originally was so difficult that even Greg Norman, according to local legend, agreed with when he came back to play it. Ended up doing some redesign to make more playable for me and you. Always had a great staff here, in my opinion, and always offered reasonable rates, especially for seniors. The course has a good mix of holes, I play the middle tees, from real tough to eas(ier). Always fun to play, with good pace of play during the week. Weekends are for fishing, not 5 hour rounds of golf.

Nice course. Short and rewarding for amateur golfers. They don't let you bring outside beverages on the course. Only once did we see the cart girl. Worst of all only 1 water bucket per 9 holes. Texas hundred degree day with no water.

My wife and I played on 6-17-18 and the following day, I was sent a request to fill out a survey by Players 1st golf. I was very honest about the course quality and the pace of play, not negative, just honest. Keep in mind, this is the course asking me to provide feedback about things that were good and bad.
I received a response from Adena Wallace which I thought was great, management cares. Wrong. Instead of taking feedback and acknowledging it, she disputed the items I relayed. There was not a starter when we went to check in at 10:25. Evidenced by the fact there were a total of 5 twosomes playing back to back when the course was "fully booked". There was not a Marshal (to assist with slow pace of play) that passed us during any portion of the almost 5 hrs it took to play the round. Several holes, we sat with two other groups waiting on the teebox.
To show how far out of touch she was with the operation on Sun, she went one further. In the survey it asks, were there any other areas to address. I relayed that when I checked in at the pro shop, I asked to purchase range balls. The gentleman behind the counter explained that balls were available at the range and were complimentary. Unfortunately, there were none available and we scrounged up a few apiece to warm up. Now according to Adena Wallace, my booking did not include range balls and I should have purchased them. So if your employee at the counter tells me they are complimentary on the range, how would I get him to sell me range balls?
Nothing disparaging or anything else in my survey, just pointing out that a starter and Marshal may have helped with pace of play. Next time, don't ask for feedback if you have no intention of acknowledging it and accepting it for what it is, just feedback.
