Hey peeps. I'll be moving to Mineral Wells, Tx in a couple of weeks and want to know if any of you know of places around that area to go to. And do you know of driving ranges and practice areas?

I know there is one county club right in town, its about two blocks from where I'll be living, but I don't know if they let the public play there or not.

Thanks.

It is so tough the Jr Tour left playing there, but I bet NATE could tame it.:D
That place is plain stupid hard, tightest fairways I've ever seen. Mineral Wells huh? You poor soul....I kid I kid. Your best bet is going to be Weatherford, they have 3 courses there and its not a bad drive, heard some good things about Sugar Tree. A little bit farther and you have a few at Willow Parks and one or 2 are each of the lakes that should be with in an hour's drive of you. I ahve no idea though if they are Public, Semi or full Private though. Your not too far from the Metroplex either so DFW golf days are very possible :)

Believe me, I'd stay in TN if I could but we have to help out the wife's parents so they don't go to the "old folks home"....LOL. It's all good though because I LOVE my in-laws and family. Very fun.

Thanks all for the suggestions. Keep 'em coming everybody.

Mineral Wells is home of Chicken Express!! Or Chicken E as we call it.
Love me some chicken express!!!! Best tenders ever! Got nothing from the guy that use to live there. He didn't know about the golf there in MW. I haven't played the cliffs in about 15 years but I do remember those winding fairways. I think I hit a couple of balls in Lake Possum Kingdom though.

When I started playing golf I was living in Tx at the time and on a course with VERY small greens. I didn't realize it at the time but it did wonders for my game. Learning how to handle that wind helped me to manage a course.

Thanks. But I'll still be moving and getting settled in. I'll keep an ear out for future rounds though.
