Twin Lakes Golf Course
Probably my favorite course played so far
First time playing there and probably one of the best courses I've ever been too personally. The course is amongst a tree farm so there are no shortage of trees on the course. Lots of fairways lined in trees. Loved that extra pressure to hit it down the center though. The practice greens were much like you'd be playing out on the course. Greens were slow but true to roll. Lots of greens with angulations and some with different tiers with added pressure to get on the right one. The scenery is fantastic loved looking over the lush countryside. The only complaint I have is this www my first time going there and was coming from 2 1/2 hours away to test out the course, hit some traffic and was ten minutes late for the tee time and the guy acted like he didn't want to let us play. Definitely didn't want us to play alone as a twosome so we waited for an hour and half for a twosome to be paired with then ended up playing by ourselves anyways because the twosome wanted to play alone that we were paired with? But overall it's a fantastic course to play. Some water to deal with too but just adds to the challenge.

Great layout, enjoyed the round, putts were a bit slow, grass maybe needed a closer cut. Clean open layout, likely thands to the surrounding tree nursery. Will be back!

Couldn't recommend this course more
The thing I keep wanting to say is that this course is unlike any other in Dallas and that's cause it's not. Still the 45 minute to an hour drive from 635/75 it takes to get to it is well worth it. If this course, with the same East Texas setting, was in Dallas it'd be where the PGA tournament would be held. Just check with course for any tournaments before you head out. I got caught on the back end of one so front took a little longer than "pace" but then opened up on back.

This course has absolutely the prettiest views I've ever seen.

Love this place
I love a course with a few blind shots...makes you really think. Very nice layout of holes with nice bunkering. Wide fairways and some forced carries will keep you excited hole to hole. There are great views of the many lakes from most of the holes. One thing....IMPORTANT...... .keep your balls below the hole......mega fast greens. If you find yourself above a hole...you will most likely have a 6-7 ft second putt back uphill. I'm a pretty good putter...if you are not...this course will tear you up if you do not stay below the holes. This was my first time here...and I will be back many more times.

A place to seek out
Super course. FAST greens. I'll be back every time my travels take me anywhere near it.

Excellent Course/Poor Customer Service
The course is one of the best, if not the best course in the area. Very challenging, but can be forgiving. It is well maintained and is usually is great playing condition. The customer service is horrible in my opinion. The customer service representatives seem to care less if you are there or not. I will say that the friendliest people that work at Twin Lakes is the maintenance guys as they always speak when they pass you. The people in the pro shop won't even do that. If the employees did the bare minimum in customer service this course would always be full of guest, but they don't and I've never found this course full. We played on a Saturday morning (bad weather lurking, but we never got wet) and we only saw about 4-5 other groups on the course. We were never once thanked for coming out or anything that would lead us to believe that our business was important to them.
