Tour 18 Golf Course Dallas
The course was wet but the greens were amazing. Course need yardage markers but is a really fun play.

Another Round at Tour 18 Dallas
First off I want to say that I have played this course many times. For a period the course conditions and overall course shape suffered, but the last few times it seems to be getting better. One of my biggest pet peeves about this course is how much it cost to play. It takes me an hour in traffic to get there and normally cost $75+. This normally keeps me away, but when I saw it for $39 on Golf Now, I decided to go back. It has been very wet here in the DFW area for the last month, but the course was in good shape. The greens were very nice, but the fairways look like they need to install some better drainage systems. When I got there almost all of the balls were gone off the range, and I had to ask one of the three carts guys to get more. There were other players just standing on the range waiting for someone to acknowledge there were no range balls. It took about 10 minutes to get some, when I thought was strange given there were three cart guys and not very many players on the course. The highlight/highlights of the day were the starter letting me and my buddy go off early to beat a large group we would have been stuck behind and then two other large groups let us play through later in the round. We played 18 holes in three hours and 15 minutes. I will say that both me and my buddy are low handicaps, and had it not been cart path only we would have played faster. I also shot my best round ever out there, 74. If I had to change things out there I would decrease the pro-shop staff. There always seems to be four-five guys just standing around in the pro-shop behind the counter. Why do they need so many people? I would also have a marshal out on the course to keep up the pace of play. Also, they need to give some attentions to the fairway on the par five sixth hole. The middle of the fairway is just dirt and sand. Maybe they need to re-sod this area. These are just my opinions, and none of what I listed above will keep me from going back if the price is right.

Just fun to play holes that are replica's of PGA courses...especially the island green from TPC Sawgrass!

The only downside to this visit was the condition of the fairways due to the recent weather (snow, ice and rain).

While the course is supposed to be holes representing the real ones they describe, in actuality there only slightly similar. Example: the Amen Corner Masters #12 green was only about 1/3 the size of the real green and the slope in front wasn't even close to the real one. Overall it was OK to get to play holes similar to the real ones that I'll probably never get to play. The course condition wasn't that great either. I knew the fairways would be dormant Bermuda but the greens were in poor shape and inconsistent. Some were hard pan and painted green while other were shaggy. The course lacks yardage markers that made it difficult to know how far out you were. I might give it a try again in the summer with some hesitation.

Great Time at Tour 18!!
First time playing the course had a great time. The weather was Cold and Windy Bad combination but the course was in great shape for winter conditions. 16 17 and 18 greens were a little rough but Didn't take away from the playing experience. I am a 4 handicap and played the White tees and still found the course challenging.

Can be fun but course conditions are questionable for the price. Worth it if you don't pay the full fee

Tour 18 disappointed
i have played this course a few times now and each time the course conditions have gotten worse. It could be so much better. Overall, just a very average experience because I was expecting so much more.
