Twin Lakes Golf Course
Wish they had better bunkers
I've played at Twin Lakes many times over the years and have always wished that they would spend some money on the traps. The sand is very shallow and there are never enough rakes handy to rake up after yourself.

Lots of Eye Candy
Twin Lakes is a hidden gem of a golf course about an hours drive east of DFW. The par 5's are all true 3 shotters for most players but are fair although demanding. Twin Lakes par 3's are championship caliber that require solid ball-striking. The closing stretch of par 4's 16-18 have great visual appeal as they wind through the pines with the second shot on both 17 and 18 visually stunning and demanding . My only quibble would be the slope of the greens don't allow for much variety in hole locations . Since it is surrounded by the owners massive tree farming operation the trees on the course are healthy and well maintained allowing you to play recovery shots without a lot of scrub and low hanging branches to deal with. You owe it to yourself to make the trip out there to what I like to call " a Lil piece of Augusta right here in Texas"

Excellent course, if u can ever find it!
The golf course and surrounding scenery is awesome. Very challenging course with the many shots over water and accuracy that was required. It was an adventure trying to locate the course using car GPS, totally confused by location of course.

Put it on the bucket list
Heard good things about this place. Drive in, the access road winds thru the course. Wow. Course is pristine, well manicured, good traps, tree lined, elevation changes. Visually stimulating. The only thing I could ding would be slower than average greens, first cut off greens high, and you could not walk the course with distances between tee boxes. Overall it was great and cant wait to return. Lots of tee boxes for all levels. Never thought I would enjoy 5800 yrds, but was fun.

Gem in the trees
This is a great course. It is built in a tree farm. It is just south of Canton Tx. It is well maintained and in great condition. Tee boxes for all levels. It has challenging holes, moderate holes an a few easy holes. I would not recommend this course for beginners. The only drawback was the greens were pretty slow when we played. It was not crowded either, and we played on a Sunday. If you are looking for somewhere different to play, try Twin Lakes.

Great East Texas Course
I couldn't have asked for more from this experience. Great course in even better condition. The lay-out was fun while also challenging, and I didn't feel overwhelmed by it despite my high handicap.
We didn't use it, but the idea of the aquatic driving range was also cool.

course is clean and well maintained right down to the restrooms.
Have only been playing for one year. By far the prettiest course i've been on. Fairways and geens were in excellent shape considering the extreme heat and lack of rain for this time of year. All restrooms were very well kept, clubhouse had all emenities and friendly staff. Driving range and practice green were very well maintained. The scenery of all the beautiful trees, flowers and lakes was absolutely astounding. The only negative i could find is the fact that there wasn't any cart girls driving the course offering drinks and snacks ,and the beer was a bit pricy at $4 each.

greens slower than usual
We play this course often and it is always one we look forward to going to. Having to travel 80+ miles gives us time to really get pumped up before we arrive. The greens were slower than we were expecting and our GPS did not work on our cart, but it did not keep us from having a blast playing on a cloudy cool day.
