1....this is my favorite golf course but trying to set up a time??? its hard!! its always full and when you get to play, the staff and marshall are rushing you and telling you to either hurry up or let people thru....let people thru????? when there is a 4some in front of us (2 walkers-2 riders-1 lady that cant play??)another 4some behind us and is just 2 of us???come on!!
2....few weeks ago i invited my co-workers to try out stevens(5some=$250 dlls on a sunday morning)everything was going good but after the 11th hole this staff member/marshall aproached us and told us that we needed to hurry up a little bit that we were 2 minutes behind pace???...after that he killed our game....he kept waiting on us at every hole...that got on my nervs....sometimes i think that they just want your money and thats all, because they will rush you and pressure all the way to the end, cant even enjoy playing there.....im glad mesquite golf course just opened up... will be glad to take my $$$ over there and invite my co-workers to play there as well, sorry city of dallas but you wont make a dollar out of me no more, mesquite will.....
first golf course ever to tell us to hurry up...we do keep our pace so there was no need for them to rush us...
Great golf course in a beautiful area of Oak Cliff. Well maintained with some quirkiness.
Very small turkey sub combo very $10 is too expensive and they don't offer burgers.
I play a lot of golf. I go out on my own a lot, because it's easy to get out golfing when you're a single, even on a busy weekend. I meet a lot of interesting people that way, too. Many of them are also passionate about golf and like to recommend courses. Several different people on numerous golf outings have mentioned this place - Stevens Park Golf Course. I love trying new golf courses but it can be a little stressful; I dont know the lay of the land, I don't know what kind of people play there, I don't know where the bathrooms are (hey - your priorities change as you get older!!). But every once in a while, I suck it up and try a new place.
I was hesistant to go here, because despite the numerous referrals that I try this place, there were very few reviews on Yelp for it, and zero pictures. I didn't think it would be very good.
The reason why this course gets 4 stars as opposed to 5, is because it's on the expensive side, and many holes have a lot of road noise from really busy streets. And while the course condition was generally very good, many tees were just wet mud. Those were really the only drawbacks; the rest of the place was a lot of fun. I showed up on my own about 10:00 am on a busy Saturday and got out within 10 minutes. It cost $50 for 18 holes with a cart (that's expensive for around here!!) but I was willing to see how it was. The facility is great - there are two practice greens around the clubhouse - both in great shape. The pro shop is really well-stocked. The kicker about the clubhouse was the golf-cart-drive-thru. That blew me away - I've never seen that before! But at the turn (after the ninth hole), you get to the 10th tee by driving up onto and through the patio - like a mini-drive-thru for golf carts! I thought that was so cool. But you can park and run in and get a bag of beers or a hot dog or something. You can order a sandwich ahead of time from the 9th tee, but they weren't picking up the phone when I went. But I thought that was a neat building.
The course itself is tough. One of the tougher that I've played. I didn't play all that great, but I guess for this difficult course, I did pretty good! The course has a lot of character. It's hilly (I'd never walk here), there are water hazards and twists and turns. Some holes are wide open, others are really narrow. There are two par-3s in a row, something I've never seen before. Oh - one hole - also something I've never seen: You have to hit your second shot UP ONTO A CLIFF. That was CRAZY but I actually DID it! I took a photo of it, but it doesn't do it justice - it's like trying to hit your ball up onto a ledge that's 2-3 stories high. If you miss, you're dead - it's a cliff-face. There's a sign saying you have to drop your ball on top of the cliff if you miss, instead of taking numerous shots to conquer it. That very same hole has an incredible view of Dallas from the green - it's really neat. That home sitting there must be big bucks. How can I marry into a family with a place like that? Anyhow, overall, it's a challenging course - it can be a little nerve-wracking, and it is on the expensive side, but I had a good time and I might try it again someday. (I also took a ton of pictures and uploaded them here.)
Went to Stevens Golf course w/ Son-In law on St Paddys Weekend. The first time we played golf together was at this course. They have since renovated and it is a very fun course to play with lots of trees and bunkers. The have a fantastic deck with ceiling fans overlooking the course and just by itself would be worth going for a beer and hot-dog just to take in the scene. The Dallas Downtown Skyline is visible on many of the Holes. Just a wonderful place to spend some time at. Can't wait to go back again.
This is a great city park! Clean beautiful and fun! Some of the holes are challenging but some offer some great views of downtown. You won't be disappointed.
