Designed over thirty-seven years ago by Pres Maxwell, Canyon Creek Country Club offers it's members a fun, somewhat challenging round of golf with good variety and excellent conditions. You'll find the greens to be some of the most challenging in Dallas – fast, elevated, all shapes and sizes, and true but with lots of slope and undulation. When we played they were in excellent condition but weren't that soft and getting your ball to hold was difficult – bump and runs worked ok if the green wasn't real elevated.
The fairways were also in very good condition, most were tree lined, and they ranged from tight to open, and flat to rolling including some deep valleys. There are a few hidden surprises that will cause you a problem the first time you play the course.
The front seems much easier and much more straight forward – if you can hit 'um straight and putt, you'll have a good round. The back is a little more difficult, has some elevation changes, some tight fairways, and some very fun holes. Number 11 for example is a 404 yard dog leg left with hidden water that cuts about three fourths of the way across the fairway that heads to the uphill green.
Canyon Creek Country Club is a good track that once you get to know it you'll have a fun and enjoyable round.
