    they jacked the prices up if so lol
    WOW, I guess adding Hanks name doubled the price! I guess if you got there and practiced, had lunch, played 18 and then had dinner it might be worth it...LOL

    It usually is and with all the rain this area has had (including today) it should be really nice. The front 9 is ok but the back 9 is really nice.

    I like Coyote Ridge - good track and they have a new fancy clubhouse, good sub$50 rates on weekdays as Nate mentioned. Check them out.

    A little bit on a couple of holes, one par 4 goes up and then comes straight down on a par 3. 17th hole is a bit downhill as well. Lots of trees on the back 9, combines with the slight elevation makes it a really nice backside.

    I grew up in Richardson in the Spring Park area and Sherril Park (in North East Richardson either course) is by far one of the tops as far as municipal courses are concerned in DFW. Ever since developers have started to build high dollar homes around the back course of Fire Wheel (in far North Garland) it has had some money poured back into and has some of the most challenging greens I've ever played, they're all elevated with very short manicured rough and if you miss, you pay.

    I've since graduated from UNT and played several courses over toward the 35 corridor between Denton and Dallas and I've come to find some of the most beautiful courses in this area. I was a member at Oakmont for a year in college and it is a beautiful course. Robson Ranch in far West Denton is a good course as well. My boss is a member at Lantana and I'm fortunate enough to be able to play with him once or twice a month out there. (Sometimes they run groupons to get the public in, they try to sell you a membership but just listen to their spill and you'll be on your way to a great round of golf after telling them no about 20 times). Lantana is by far one of the best maintained courses in the area, it was the host for the U.S. Open qualifiers. My boss and I slipped out of the office to watch Romo try and qualify a few months back. In Flowermound there is a course called Bridlewood that has struggled to keep it's greens in shape since switching from bluegrass to bermuda but if they've rectified the issue, it is also a solid course to play.

    My top 5 course in the area right now would be
    Lantana
    Cowboys
    The Tribute
    Oakmont
    Texas Star

    My Top 5 affordable courses that I play on a regular basis are
    Trails of Frisco
    Bear Creek East
    Sherrill Park 1
    Robson Ranch
    Fire Wheel Bridges Course

    Keep on Livin' man, L-I-V-I-N
    Jetspeed 12
    RBZ Stage 2 15 Fairway
    RBZ Stage 2 19 Hybrid
    SLDR 4-PW w/ C-Taper 90
    ATV 50 54 58 w/ Wedge
    Island Series Abaco Phanton
    Fifty Elite/DUO/FG Tour

    Twin Creeks is in Allen but just northeast of Plano. Nice track as well.

    The Tribute is in the Colony and is like a Tour 18 except a collection of British Open holes. Gonna pay $100 for a weekend.

    But my pick would be Castle Hills.
    Nate's spot on here, Castle Hills would be my pick as well.
