Texas Golf Course Review
Indian Creek Golf Club in Carrolton just north of Dallas features 36 holes of recently renovated championship golf, highlighted by generous fairways and large undulating greens. Designs featuring doglegs, ponds, mature trees and consistent playing conditions make this one of the top ten ranked public golf facilities in the Metroplex, year after year. Indian Creek was named as 2004's 7th Best New Golf Course in America by Golf Digest, and was selected as EAGL's 2006 Golf Club of the Year!
Both golf courses are serviced by a clubhouse that features a pro shop which has been ranked in the top five in the DFW area by Avid Golfer Magazine, plus 19th Hole Bar & Grill that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. The property can host outings and events of up to 125 people indoors or up to 200 guests in the covered outdoor pavilion. There is a full practice facility with targeted grass range, short game area with sand bunker, and putting/chipping green. Individual and group lessons and clinics of all types are offered.
On course yardages are posted on the cart paths at 100, 150 and 200 yards, and sprinkler heads on the fairways are measured to the center of the green on all par fours and fives. 150 yard stakes are also positioned in the center of the fairways, and pin placement information is indicated on the scorecards. Hole diagram/yardage guides are also available.
The Creek Course at Indian Creek features 4 sets of tees that play to distances and slopes measuring 7000 yards/129 slope,6532 yards/125 slope, 5954 yards/115 slope and 5271 yards with a slope of 119 for women hitting from the forward sets. As these slopes indicate, this is a player friendly design. The terrain is fairly level and tree lined, but there is generally ample room off the tees and on the approaches.
There are a total of 55 soft sand bunkers located near the landing zones or greenside and water is a pronounced feature as hazards come into play in some shape or form on 15 holes. The green complexes are slightly raised with mounding and gentle swales, but ample room is provided for up and down recoveries. The bent grass putting surfaces are large in size and mild in undulation.
Indian Creek presents two distinctive layouts, a comprehensive practice facility, full service clubhouse, and friendly service. The rate structure makes this one of the regions best golf values. For more info, visit our page for the Lake Course, with direct link to their website by clicking here.
