Owned by the city of Arlington, this course has been around since 1963–it’s located on the north edge of Lake Arlington and surrounded by native trees and wildflowers. Ralph Plummer designed this easy course, incorporating little water and no bunkers.

The first hole is one of the most difficult, playing over 400 yards into a dogleg-left fairway dominated by a huge pecan tree. Holes 13 and 14 play near the lake–the 13th goes 389 yards uphill and doglegs right, and the 14th measures 240 yards downhill to a green protected by water on the left side. Even though it’s a long par 3, there is a dramatic drop from tee to green.

Getting there : From Dallas, take I-30 west and exit East Chase Pkwy. Turn left, travel about 4 miles, and you'll come to the intersection of Spur 303 and Green Oaks Blvd.

    Always enjoy playing Lake Arlington. Challenging without being punishing.

    The descriptions of holes 13 and 14 above are incorrect. Thirteen is the number one handicap, and it is uphill, but it doglegs left, not right. Fourteen is a downhill par 3, about 228 from the whites, but it is not protected by water at all. Lake Arlington is nearby, but this hole is below the dam and plenty far from the lake.

    Played here on 1-16-14 and the course is in good shape. Had trouble getting a cart that was fully charged.

    A lot of people walk the course but they played quickly and we didn't wait much at all.

    Already scheduled another tee time.
