Mansfield National Golf Club
Excellent all-around course for the value
Always well maintained, great hole layouts and always a great time whenever I make it out to National. Perfect balance of elevations and water/sand traps as well as thick tree lines to work around but still plenty of open fairways to attack. Amazing value for a conveniently located course - one of my favorites.

Geat Value and nice track
I enjoyed this course and it was a great value for the DFW area. I played on a windy day which was challenging as the course is wide open. Greens were in great shape for mid-March. Several blind shots, particularly on a couple sharp dog-legs. Fun course that I would definately play again when in the area. Hope to play in again when the fairways have greened up./

Greens were pristine. But...
Greens were pristine. But recent downpours had made accumulations of dead winter grass all over the fairways and the course had bad drainage. There were giant water hazards on nearly every fairway that were not supposed to be there. They were from recent rains. I love this course and defiantly want to go back, but do not go back after a rain. I loved the shape the greens were in for this time of year. The back nine is much more challenging due to more out of bounds due to very thick mesquite. Nice course. Will go back for sure.

The course was really nice,what i did mot like was that i booked a tee time with u guys with the lunch special,and when i get there me and my friends they tell us that the lunch was not included n the deal because i went through u guys.if we had known that i would have went somewhere else to play for the money we spent $48.00 for a rd of golf and $10.00 for lunch so we didnt save any money going through you guys,we where very disappointed

Tees and greens are in great shape (fix you divots!).
Fairways are what you'd expect for this time of year; lots of roll.

The course is in great shape even this early in the year
Young man behind the desk in the pro shop only wanted us out of there. He did not offer either of us our receipts or tell us whether or not to show them to the starter. Course was exceptional for this time of year, and I can't wait to go back.

We had a fun day but the pace of play was TOO SLOW!
Pace of play was extremely slow. We played our round in exactly 5 hours! Tee times booked too close together.

Challenging but need more attentive personnel
This is the second time I have booked with Golfnow and was postponed by a tournament the first time(which took precedent over my foursome) and by lack of available carts the second time, but at least on the second occasion I received a free bucket of range balls. If this continues, I would hope the rates go down.

I have played this course many times and have always enjoyed it. Greens are in great shape.

Good Greens and Tee Boxes
In the past Mansfield has been a very good course. But this round was not good. This round at Mansfield was the LONGEST round that I have ever played. 6 hours 10 min. They stacked 3-4 groups per hole and we were at a snail’s pace. Through the 6 hours we never saw a marshal and only saw the cart girl 4 times. Hole 1, Hole 7, Hole 12 and Hole 18. Needless to say it was a very long day. On the positive, it is February and we are playing golf. The Tee boxes and the Greens were in good shape. The staff was apologetic and returned our money that we paid for the round.

Ball washers worked!
The day we played the wind was blowing at 30+ mph so it was not the most conducive weather for a round but I enjoyed playing the course, it was on my level challenge wise and all the ball washers worked and had soap in them, seems to be a premium now at most courses. All in all, I would go back, would like to see some better online deals.

Some challenging holes -- interesting course.
Greens and tees over seeded providing nice appearance and smooth putting surface although a little slow. Had not played here in a couple of years. Need to go back more often and get better acquainted with the course.

Great course but absent marshalls.
I played the course on a Saturday morning and the staff were very polite and apologetic that tee times were running behind even though it was only 9:15am. Our tee time was 10:00 but we didn't actually hit our first drive until 45mins later. With THREE groups backed up on the #2 tees the marshalls seemed to ignore the traffic jam and allow slow groups to play at a pace similar to turtle racing. This caused for a 5 1/2 hour round!! Ridiculous! Either someone overbooked tee times or forgot to inform the marshalls of their job description. I loved the course, it was in great shape, and I would love to play again. I'll be hesitant though to play a spring/summer round if the winter is so log jammed. I'd recommend the course only on the condition that it's on a weekday if you want to have any fun playing.

Enjoyed playing the course on yesterday. No issues getting checked in. Greens were in great condition.

Easy start, challenging ending
This course, for being in winter, had very good greens. Fairways were okay (but in winter this can be expected). The first four holes are wide open, good to get in the groove, then as the holes progress they get tighter and tighter. Then the last hole is a wide dogleg to the left, great finish.

With GolfNow discount this is a great value.
For a course in dormant winer conditions, with overseeded greens, this is a good place to play. Can't wait to see what it looks like when it all grows in. Great mix of target and risk/reward golf. Pace of play was very good on the front and slowed down considerably on the back where it appeared a threesome was having a playing lesson. Could have used marshalls (oh, didn;t see one) to remedy situation. For less than $25 to play on a Friday, this was a great value.

The greens were the saving element for an otherwise suffering course
Mansfield National is a fun golf course to play. The design is favorable to the "average" golfer with generous fairways and large greens. Unfortunately, like so many other courses in our area, the golf course opens with great conditions but lack the monetary resources for good course maintenance which leads to its untimely deterioration. I can see where new maintenance efforts are taking place which is critical to ensure its survival. Major maintenance to the fairways should be high on the wish list.

Always had good rounds on this track.
Since the greens have been redone, this is a fun- to- play course.
The staff is an engaging group that works to accommodate you by going the extra mile, very unassuming quite unlike their neighboring counterparts....love the Nationial.

Good value with Golfnow discount
Nice course for the price. Mixture of Links style and traditional layout. Greens are in fabulous shape, especially for the first week of January. Beware the breaks on the greens, very subtle breaks that can fool you.
Staff is very friendly.
Only real comlaint I have with this course is that the bunkers are dirt not sand, which can make it difficult when wet.
Fairways are in decent shape considering it is winter time and there hasn't been very much rain lately. So you can expect alot of roll on your drives
Decent challenging course but beware the wind if its blowing.

Getting Back To Greatness

Fun course,great greens
Fairways brown, so green u could see well. Had a lot of fun

Course great, staff not so good.
We had a tee time for 845am on a friday, but didn't start till 11am bc of the frost, which is understandable. Could of at least had the bar open for us to buy snacks or breakfast. But instead had a empty coffee pot. Nobody on the staff had a timetable of when we were going to start to play. Called other courses and they had started play an hour before mansfield. Course was in great condition. Pace of play was ok also. But overall experience was not good. Do not play there in the winter, unless you have alot of time on your hands.

Still charging a "GPS" fee. Beware of false price.
I don't know of any other course in the area that charges a GPS fee. Beware the golf now price you pay will be jacked up another $5 for their "fee". Otherwise course is in pretty good condition. Fairways are well maintained. Greens are getting better. I would give it two more stars if not for the GPS fee.

I really enjoyed this course
This was my first experience with this course. The holes are long and wide perfect for me, the corse was in very good shape for Dec and our party really liked this course. Hills and greens were challenging. I would recommend this course and can't wait to play again in spring time.
December 16, 2012
I really enjoy playing this course. It is well maintained and the staff are always friendly and glad you are there.
The course starts off with some easy or at least wide open holes for a good warm up and the more challenging holes. I like that. The greens were great and the fairways in good shape.
December 15, 2012
The price you get on Golf Now is not what you are charged. There is a hiddeen charge for the GPS system which you are not told about.
The greens were nice but the pace of play was 5 hours. We waited on every hole and there we did not see 1 Marshall all day.
November 26, 2012
Great course. Adventurous in a way.
My friend and I played a challenging but relaxing 18 holes at this course. It was my first time on the course but my friend had played there a couple times a while back. Having the GPS included with the cart was a very nice feature. All in all: good people, good golf and a great course.

Overall a great course that needs some TLC
I got a 12:30pm tee time on Monday for $17.00 via golfnow.com. At this price this course was an excellent value.
- At discounted rates this is an excellent value
- Nice course layout - huge potential here
- I saw a sign on the 18th that said you can go again for an additional $15.00 (not sure if that includes a cart).
- Pace of play was wicked fast - I finished in under 3 hours - (could be due to 12pm tee time on Monday)
- Plenty of eagle opportunities for well placed drives on par 5s
- Tee boxes and fairways are very firm (firmest I have ever seen in NTX) - you shouldn't need a hammer to get your tee into the ground lol!
- Greens are in bad shape - although the ball did roll (due to the ground being hard) it was very bouncy and the grass growth was very poor - too many spots with just dirt
- Rocks in bunkers
This was my first time playing this course and I came away with mixed feelings. The course layout was awesome. I like how some courses make you think about which club to take from the tee as opposed to just bombing it down the fairway with your driver on every par 4. This is definitely one of those courses. What I found odd was that the club house, carts and cart paths were top notch but the actual golf course could use a little attention in all aspects. The tee boxes and fairways were rock hard. The greens were mostly dirt and very bumpy and the bunkers had rocks in many of them. This course could potentially be one of the best in the area if they could remedy these problems. As it is, I would definitely play here again if I can get a rate like I did today but there are definitely better courses in the area.

Good course for the money
Good course not too packed. Great pace of play. Staff was very friendly. Fairways were in really good shape. Greens were not very good. pretty bare and hard as a rock. I would probably not play here again until they get the greens in better shape.
