Played on a Dallas Cowboy Sunday game day so the pace of play was a little over 3 1/2 hours. The round was a little pricey at $120 for the two of us but the course was in nice shape, with the greens rolling well. The staff was nice and although we didn't buy from her, the cart girl was seen a few times throughout the round.
The highlands is an excellent course. Greens are large, quick, and in great shape from September on. Good layout overall, but the last 5 holes are superb. Nice views and elevation changes. Very fair course with 5 sets of tees. Lots of fun!
Played the week of 9/6/2014. The $55 for the Highlands is overpriced for the poor customer service and a cart girl that needs a name tag and a new attitude. The course was saturated with water and scalped in certain portions of the fairway where you would rather be in the rough to hit off. I will never play this course again until "Sweetheart" is gone and the consenting search warrants are eliminated.
OMG! i live in the mesquite area, so normally i play golf courses around east dallasarea....DO NOT PLAY THE GLEN COURSE!!!
this past weekend(fathers day weekend) went out and played tenison park east course(glen), the greens were in extremely in bad shape, especially hole #1..it was horryble.......i mean that was the worst green i have ever seen......and besides that, they are still charging people regular price......dont play there! there is a golf course about 5-7 minutes down the street that is in way better shape....grover keeton...
Nice little track. There are two courses here (Tenison Highlands and Tenison Glen) with the Highlands being the nicer of the two. The rates for the Highlands can get into the $20's (walking; weekday) to a $60 rate (cart; weekend). For a nice weekend, it is good to call ahead earlier in the week for a tee time.
The course is not too long and plays 7,000 yards from the back tees and around 6,200 to 6,500 yards from the gold or blue tees. Many of the par 4s or par 5s (especially on the back 9) play from a very elevated tee box, so the yardage is probably a few 100 yards less.
This is just a good, all-around municipal course. It is not too fancy; it is not too challenging. But it can be a slow round (5+ hours) on a busy weekend which can be annoying.
The clubhouse (and cart girl) sell beer and food. They make a pretty good egg & cheese sandwich too.
