Gentle Creek opened in August of 2002 with a challenging D. A. Weibring design that serves as the centerpiece for Prosper’s newest country club community. Although it is technically private, the public can play the course for the time being while they wait to fill the memberships.
Weibring’s design tips out over 7,300 yards, and features some excruciatingly long holes. Fortunately there are alternative tees that make the course more playable for the average hack. First timers out here should play from the 6,200 yard white tees to make the most of their day.
The most spectacular hole is the Hill Country-like par-3 No. 9, which is fronted by a huge pond, waterfall, and rock wall. Eight sets of tees give you options here, and there is sufficient bail out room to the right, so plan accordingly on this tough mother.
The ender on the back side is a nice hole as well, with a 20-acre lake spanning the entire left side. If the wind is in your face, this hole’s 560 yards is more like 660, and you’ll need three full shots to get to the bunkered green that slopes back-to-front.
One design feature we noticed during our round here is that Weibring eliminated greenside rough, creating good opportunities for ups-and-downs if you can at least get the approach around the green in regulation.
Getting there : Located on FM 1461 between Preston Rd. and FM 2478 (Custer Rd.), 1.5 miles east of Preston Rd
