The Club At Runaway Bay
very scenic course
first time to play the course. beautiful layout, lots of dog legs right and left, challenging elevation changes, new carts with GPS distances to the F/M/B of greens, each hole has a tip about how to play the hole. enjoyed the course, will play again. driving range like hitting into a construction zone, range balls of various condition, types. lost a few balls to the over grown grass, both sides of ALL fairways BUNKERS NEED TLC. saw the cart girls at least 5 times, friendly. pro shop staff very friendly, good food in the restaurant. regulars very welcoming. temperature 100
+. WE LIKED IT OVERALL, WILL PLAY AGAIN

Really soft greens
Best for winter play. Greens very soft and responsive.

The course layout was nice, but traps were washed out and neglected. Overall the course was unkept. The biggest problem was we were asked to start on 10 because of a tournament. That would have been ok if it put us in front of the tournament, but we were inserted into the group. When we finished 18 we then had a backup on 1. No starter or anybody to help people coming off the backside to complete their round.

considering how dry it has been in Texas, I thought the course was in great shape.. the greens were in great shape.. love the bent grass..

nice course, but...
Pretty place, nice course layout, fun to play here. No the BAD.. Greens had the nastiest weeds i ever saw on the greens and they are all over and deeply rooted. Dont waste your time until at least next spring.

Making a Comeback
Up until two years ago, I played the course exclusively. It really started to go downhill, but the new GM Darren has really improved the place over the last year. they are letting the fairways grow out a bit, but you get to hit off grass now instead of dirt. I've seen a review that complained about this, but he needs to understand the watering restrictions, cut it low and your going lose the fairways. The greens have some crabgrass on them, but they rolled true and held very well. I hit from three hybrid to sand wedge all held the greens. I was very happy with the course, first time I have been able to say that in years. 11 years ago when I started playing there it was the hidden Gem of the metroplex area. Hopefully if they keep the current management in place for a while, which is a difficult thing for Warrior Golf, they may be on their way back.

POOR COURSE CONDITIONS
The price was excellent. Normally 38 dollars to play during the week but I pad 10. So definitely a plus on that end. But the course was not in good shape. Grass was not mowed properly on the fairway. The ones that were mowed....they left the dead grass on the fairway. Groundskeeper definitely needs a talking to.
