The Club at Rebecca Creek

  101 Reviews

A buddy of mine and I played this course after a 2 month break. We were looking for something that wouldn't break the bank, or our score with a short break from the game. I did a little research and found that this course has a new water contract to the overall condition has improved greatly from a few years ago when I previously played.

We had a 10:30 tee time, but got there an hour early to practice. We were greeted with a beyond friendly clubhouse staff and asked us if we wanted to tee off at 9:45. We declined and stuck with our original tee time. Additionally, the practice range was closed, but they said they would open it up for us.

We casually hit some balls, the condition of the range was obvious that it was coming back from some serious lack of water. Overall, we had a great time practicing before our tee time.

Before we knew it, it was 10:30 and we headed off to the first tee. The first tee is a bit tricky to find, and the layout of the front 9 are very close together. There is 0 sand on the course, but the fairways are very narrow. It reminded us out a links type course. The fairways were overall good, a few weeds, but we were never hitting off any dirt, it was always grass that was nicely mowed. The back 9 opens up and you have large oak trees that present a few challenges, but you have the ability to easily find your ball if you spray it off the tee due to the wide fairways. The greens on all the holes were very green and fast. I was very impressed.

Again, this course is coming back from some serious damage. Give it another season and it will be in great shape.

We found out that the manager of River Crossing has recently partnered with Rebecca Creek. Not sure if your familiar with River Crossing, but it is ALWAYS in immaculate condition. So I know that they are headed in the right direction and that with the current ownership and management, it will the pristine in a year or two. We both shot an 86/85 and couldn't be happier.

Oh! On the turn we casually ate lunch in the clubhouse, I highly recommend the smash burger by Dan as it was delicious. After our round (pace of play was fantastic as there weren't a lot of golfers), Amber at the bar kept us entertained while we had a few drinks before we left.

Overall, the conditions of the course are coming back from a rough couple of years with a lack of water. The service by the staff was fantastic and for the price, you can't beat playing here.

I will be returning later this year and i'm eager to play.

He would play this course again.

I drove in from Austin to give this course a shot and the course was worth the time spent. The place has a nice, friendly, vibe, and the golf course is well done from start to finish. Very firm greens made for some tricky approach shots, but the condition of the course was consistent from 1 thru 18 which made the firm approaches fun. I know the course has had difficulties in the past but my sense is they have a good formula that makes for a fun day.

Course is in excellent condition. New water contract makes the fairways green and the greens in good shape. Fun course to play with lots of friendly members and workers.

Considering all the great reviews of this course, I had to try it. Let's address the positives first:
1. Simple design - most holes are straight without sand traps or (when I played) water.
2. Very friendly staff but even better - every group of 3 to 4 golfers readily waved me (as a single) through. I did not have to wait more than ONE minute until I was invited to play through! These folks are the most courteous golfers I have ever seen.
3. When I played, course was dry so for someone who tops their shots, I didn't suffer too terribly since the ball rolled 10-20% further.
4. You cannot beat the green fee - very inexpensive.
Negatives?
1. This region is very subject to the weather and when dry - everything dries out - especially the greens for which the dryness caused diffuse scattering of small patches of dead grass turned into dirt.
2. The slope is much higher than I would have expected.
3. It is in a very remote area. Best to approach it from Hwy 281 - a relatively straight and much shorter distance compared to coming in from the East (I-35).
Overall, I was happy after playing the course. I drove 160 miles (one way) to satisfy my curiosity. Satisfaction from the friendly staff and other very friendly golfers will bring me back.

The staff was amazing. We were a couple minutes late to our tee time and they couldnt care less (we weren't holding anybody up). The marshal was hilarious and helpful. I sliced a ball over a hill into a group of trees and when I went over the hill to look for it I found the marshal laying on the ground playing dead like I hit him with my wild shot lol.

The course itself was nothing to brag about. No water hazards or sand traps. There are quite a few holes that are tight together where you're bound to end up on another fairway, or have another player on yours. The grass was in poor condition. Greens were pretty bad. Some had little to no grass on them-just hard mud.

Overall it was a good value for the dollar amount. Played midday and nobody was rushing us or in front of us. It was a good course to enjoy a leisurely round with friends while drinking a lot of beer.

He would play this course again.
