Rated 5 out of 5 by laaaker Very enjoyable round
I was going to play as a single but the starter and I were having such an enjoyable conversation that other singles showed up for their tee time so we made it a 3-some.

Rated 3 out of 5 by rdmusic01 Maintenance Mondays?
We went to tee off and were told that Mondays are for maintenance and all the greens were being heavily sanded. This basically ruined any chance of a solid round because the greens were mostly sand and any chance to hold a line and speed were hopeless. This would have been nice to know ahread of time from GolfNow when booking the tee time.
Otherwise, the day went OK, however ground crews were usually oblivious to our playing and one rude crew member was blowing off fairways and greens we were on by pulling a very loud, large blower machine with a cart very close to us playing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jnslux Very narrow course
the course was very narrow and challenging. it wasn't an easy course. I got frustrated towards back 9 and skipped some holes. If you like very challenging course, this is the one but, for beginners, it would be very discouraging.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tom1475160 I like it overall
I've played here a few times each year, and I've played three or four two day tournaments here. It's a short course. The greens are the best part, most of the time. There are several poorly designed holes. #2 is a prime example. It's a short par5, and from the tips, your landing area is about 20yds wide and the fwy slopes left to right with hazard right and woods left. So, you have to think about laying up. But it's a par5, who's going to layup off the tee? Not me... So, for this hole you HAVE to be hitting your driver super well otherwise you'll be minus one golf ball. And the #4 fourth hole? That is a complete joke!!! You tee off with an iron to have a full wedge into the green. If you're above the hole, you're complete toast. The green is perhaps a 4 degree slope all the way around. You're going to three or four putt unless you have skill. The rest of the course is pretty good with a hole or two that just doesn't need to be there. There's a par3 that is #14 i think... you'd best be on the proper side of the green where the stick is or you will three putt for sure.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Garfield6363798 Missing attention to detail
Overall experience was fair not memorable. Pace of play from the first tee on was extremely slow. We had an 7:50am teatime and didn't finish until 1:15 PM . The course was relatively short , narrow and quirky . The greens were very good fast and true . Overall the staff was friendly, however the cart girl scarcely turned up throughout our entire round . The two times we saw her throughout our 5 1/2 hours on premises was on the 10th hole and the 17th hole . Naturally on the 10th we had already stopped at the halfway house and on the 17th we were almost done with our round .
My cart was in poor condition ( bumpy & out of balance) and most of the card -path was in need of repair. Just not what I expected from a top-notch golf facility.
The rough did not seem very long but any ball hit slightly off the fairway will require you to walk on the ball order to find it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Freeneuron I expected more.
With a name like Trophy Club and knowing this area, I expected a little more from this club. The cart paths are a mess. Whoever made them must have tried to skimp on the preparation, because its a bumpy ride! The rough was cut pretty deep, so it was very easy to lose a ball. Some of the tees were obliterated and there were grass clippings just laying on the side of the tee. Having said all that, its a decent layout. The greens were very fast! Be prepared to have the ball run off the green if you are not careful. You also must be accurate. Not many places to hook or fade a driver. I would play here again, but will not be going out of my way to do so.

I waited 60 days to play Trophy again, since it was in bad shape in May. While the tee boxes were better, the rough is just ridiculous. Hey guys....CUT THE FREAKIN' GRASS. We lost balls all day long that were just off the fairway. Pretty sure they're not prepping for a PGA event, so no excuses. I have to assume they're having cash flow problems, since the pace was horrendous and no rangers in site. We had a 11:12a tee time....took no break at the turn and finished playing at 4:55p. AWFUL.
I am crossing this one off my list indefinitely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nicholsrrk5712 Moderately challenging course
Course was in great shape. Definitely a finesse course as shot placement is key on a couple of holes, especially when approaching the green. Greens ran different from each hole; sometimes real fast and other times somewhat slower.
