Mansfield National Golf Club is worth the drive south from Dallas-Fort Worth
MANSFIELD, Texas -- With green fees under $50 (including cart and GPS), Mansfield National Golf Club, which is just south of Arlington, Texas, is one of the best deals in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
This player-friendly, 225-acre layout was designed by local architect John Colligan. Wide fairways, large greens and naturally rolling terrain make this a most enjoyable golf experience.
Play the back tees at 6,850 yards, and the course is certainly no pushover. Plus, the greens have plenty of movement, so making putts is no easy task.
Mansfield National G.C. really features two different terrains. The first few holes are somewhat open, then the course winds its way around oak, evergreen, cedar, elm, hackberry, and mesquite trees that come into play on most holes. Low Branch Creek meanders through the course.
The course also offers the new sport of FootGolf, a combination of soccer and golf using over-sized holes. FootGolf is integrated into the first few golf holes on the course, and green fees are just $5. According to course management, the new program is proving to be quite a success, attracting kids and adults alike.
Mansfield National Golf Club also has excellent practice facilities, including a full-size grass range, large golf shop, snack bar and patio dining.
