Designed by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay, the links-style Golf Club at Fossil Creek was nominated by Golf Digest as one of the best new public golf courses in Texas when it opened in 1987, and has lived up to that advance billing since then. The course is scenic, with massive trees, limestone bluffs, bubbling creeks, and numerous lakes that bring water into play on 15 of 18 holes. The course boasts pretty rolling fairways and 18 testing holes all intertwined throughout streams created by Fossil Creek. It's surrounded by rocky-ledged creeks and crystal lakes.

    While I cannot speak to the current condition of the course, as I have not been out yet this year, in all years past I have never seen any condition less than excellent.
    Early April: not a blade of grass out of place.

    The staff is top notch. From the pro shop to the food service to the starter to the beverage cart driver. Everyone is there to accommodate your needs.

    Here's the best part; No Two Holes Alike! Every hole is memorable. Unlike most other courses in this area, the natural terrain leant itself to some beautiful, challenging golf holes. Definitely not a flat back-and-forth track with man-made mounds, ponds at the corner, and no trees.

    IMHO, best public course in north texas!

    Worst conditions I've seen in years. It's as if they have no greens keeping / or maintenance staff at all. The first green was more dirt than grass and the majority of the others was like putting in your front yard. Should've known for $32 but still far from worth the price of admission

    Course is in great shape, regardless of the time of year. During poor weather or very slow days you might not see a cart girl, but that is not the most important thing to me. The cart girls are out and the mid-course snack bar is open when business warrants.

    Can be a little pricey at peak times, but the course and staff are great!
