I'm an advid golfer with a 7.2 handicap. First let me say this was the most difficult course I have ever played. Keeping the ball in play off the tee helps, however the greens were incredibly fast and of you weren't on the correct quadrant of the green you better be have good touch because the ball will roll off on downhill putts. The amenities are wonderful and the views, spectacular!
Favorite course in DFW. Great shape.
Great course. Wonderful conditions.
Course is in great shape.
Great place friendly service. Food is amazing as well
worst greens in the metroplex. do not waste your money.
Love Tribute, great course, always great condition, friendly staff and good food. Unlike other "Tribute" courses this one is not tricked up, just great golf holes. Highly recommend you go play.
This is a great course if you're a high handicapper like me and want to improve your game (and score). The course takes 18 of the most famous links style holes from some of the most famous courses on the other side of the pond. Most holes have wide open fairways so if you sometimes spray it off the tee you won't be penalized so much. Greens can be difficult to read, with some faster than others and alot of undulations but overall the course is very forgiving and a great course to enjoy golf. The clubhouse is nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I will be back if I'm in the area again.
I play out there frequently and the course is always in great shape. Greens roll well, and everyone is always nice. I remember my first trip out there I got lost on the way and the staff in the golf shop was very helpful in guiding me there. If you are going to play anywhere in DFW you have the play The Tribute.
Beautiful course. Felt like I was in the old country.
love this golf course
It was great
Beautiful golf course with great staff. Membership deals that are hard to beat anywhere in fact I just became a member.
This is a great course! Our Keller Williams Realty office has had several charity tournaments here and the staff and facilities are always top notch.
Awesome. Perfect greens and fairways
Course was in great shape!
True links style golf. Fast greens riveted bunkers hot fast fairways. Played it in 25mph wind and scoring was very difficult. Very fun design of a Scottish course in the heart of the USA.
Beautiful golf course and a great place for our annual fund raiser!
Not a fan of the open fairways. There are very little natural obstacles. I guess that's the Scottish homage of the course. It's also overpriced at 79$ on the weekday, the greens were very poor quality. Tee boxes are also poorly maintained and have lots of divots. Fairways were nice.
Courses in good shape and the greens were a little bit slow but okay.
Excellent course - Pace and Conditions were outstanding. Not to mention my 4 birdies here.
First time here. I attended a wedding. It is a neat place. A little hidden and out of the way but it is pretty and the wait staff was great.
This is a great golf course ! First class operation.
Players club is the best value in the D/FW area.
Nice course, replicas of the Open Championship holes. Come prepare to play in the wind. its always WINDY!!
I'm impressed how this course has matured. A great test of golf. Bring all your shots!
Nice course. Friendly staff especially Ron who set me up with Players membership on July 4th. Enjoyed my first round of golf earlier today.
This was my first time at The Tribute golf club and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The condition was excellent -- firm fast fairways and smooth greens. The recreation of the holes -- although I can't comment on the accuracy since I've only seen them on tv -- was intriguing but what really stood out was the elements. The wind blew non-stop so you could really crush your drives or just hit them over 200 yards, depending on the wind direction. The staff said it blows 90% of the time so this course is no pushover for that reason alone. Take this into account on downwind holes because you may end up hitting it into the Burn or over the hole, which happened to me quite a bit. Make sure your sand game is up to speed because it seems like these bunkers have magnets in them to attract balls. The clubhouse was nice and had a great selection of hats and souvenirs. If I have the opportunity, I will definitely try this course again.
What a great challenging golf course had a great time loved it!!!
Golfers beware! They run great marketing campaigns to get you out there but they operationally cannot handle the amount of golfers. Tee'd off at 1:12pm and 4hrs 34mins later we were finally at Hole 16! Had to leave because daylight ran out. Went to tell someone at the pro shop and it was closed by 6pm with at least 30 golfers still on the course! All I can say is Wow! won't be back...ever! I'm a 1 handicap.
This was about our 4th year in a row playing this course in August, it has been part of our fantasy football draft day ritual. This course has always been in impeccable shape with the best greens (bent grass) in the area. Complete disappointment is the only way I can describe this course today. I'm not sure how a course can go downhill so fast in one year, but it did. The green on hole #1 is a complete disaster. It has divots all over it, mixed with sand, dirt and is just a complete mess. Forget trying to make a read, just pick up your ball and call it good. Some of the greens on the later holes were not as bad, but the greens are the worst that I have ever seen. I should have known, that when I received a coupon e-mail to play for $49.99, that something was amiss. They used to always play the bag pipes when we pulled up to the course. Totally a unique thing that only The Tribute did, well those are gone now too. I felt it was part of an experience when you played that course, but not anymore. A couple of changes inside, which did absolutely nothing for the clubhouse, they switched where the restaurant and pro shop used to be and took away the breakfast menu. They do however have crappy breakfast tacos now that they give away. We will be now looking for a new course to play next year, so sad.
Had a great round at The Tribute on Sunday 7/14/19. Got a break with the weather and played the first 13 holes or so in overcast skies, so not too hot. Course is fair with wider-than-normal fairways, but the rough will swallow up your golf ball. Almost impossible to find in the tall grass and even harder to chop out of. Greens rolled very true and were in great shape -- as was the rest of the course due to frequent rains this spring/summer. Cart girl came around right on time and was pleasant. We played from the white tees and the 6,000-yard length was perfect. The back nine seemed to play a little easier than the front. GPS on the carts would help greatly, but there are distances on most of the sprinkler heads. Overall, great Scottish links feel without spending an arm and a leg flying across the pond!
Absolutely a great Links Style Course in the North Dallas area. Greens were punched and sanded 10-14 days prior. Greens were in great shape with exception of raised mower cuts. Ball rolled slow and because of this, did not roll true to the undulation of the green. Fairways were in great shape and never had a bad lie. Second Cut was thick but still playable. My Foursome played in just under 4.5 hours with slight delays. Only COMPLAINT...for $100 round, I would expect GPS on Carts. Yardage markers on sprinkler heads were few and far between. GPS would give a nice overview of the hole and help calculate yardage quickly thus increase the pace of play.
This was a beautiful course from the club house to number 9. I say that because I didn't get to play the back nine which was terrible considering this was my first time playing here. I booked on golf now and there was nothing about the course playing only the front 9. Apparently they were rebuilding the bridges on the back 9. The course was in great shape and played well. It's a Scottish style links course and the holes are designed from famous holes on courses throughout Scotland. Each hole marker tells the history behind the hole. It's wide open course that allows for some fairway misses that you can still get to the hole in regulation. The greens are defiantly a challenge. They are rolling and hilly. You will hardly ever have a straight putt. I would have given this course 4 stars if I could have played the back 9. I recommend this course and will probably play it again once they get the back 9 open again
Course was in immaculate conditions. Unfortunately there is no shade what's so ever. Half the water containers were empty and cart service came around twice in a 5 hour round!! If you have patience for the slow play and give it a whirl but bring plenty of refreshments from home.
Golf course itself was in very nice shape. Amenities and non-grass related maintenance were not. 9ish tee time, no water in jugs on early holes, no bunkers raked, first saw the beverage cart a bit after 11 AM but blew right past us, sand bottle refills were empty... it seemed they are understaffed yet lots of maintenance workers on the course. Worth a discounted (Ideal Golfer) round. Full price would have stung a bit.
Course is beginning to show a lot of wear and tear from sinking soil and lack of TLC. They could really benefit from a 90 degree policy or an entrance/exit gate system. Lots of places where the grass doesn’t transition well to the cart path and a very bumpy ride entering and exiting most fairways. Jackie is very friendly at check-in...she does a great job making people feel welcome! Beer prices are pretty steep!
Does it's namesake well and really pays "Tribute" to St. Andrews
Love this course. Hasn't quite gotten over the winter conditions but getting there.
Bring extra gold balls.
Our HS held a sports banquet at The Tribute. The food was fantastic (especially the chicken), the views were breathtaking, and the service was spot on. We had a buffet which made space a little tight. Great experience, looking forward to another event there!
Still one of the best places in DFW.
Decent location to host parties. Have only seen it at night, so not sure what amenities are there. Decor is aging and deteriorating.
Pricey but great golf course
Great place for banquet. Enjoyed meal, drinks and deserts.
Love this course, it is so peaceful and serene with some of the prettiest views on any golf course in all of Dallas!
Let me start by saying that I genuinely love this course based on previous experiences here. I recently played in a tournament here and the overall course and practice facilties were not up to the tribute standard. I'm not sure what has happened but the management team is not watching after the course. My overall experience was not worth the price paid. I truly hope someone from their team reads this review because I really love the concept of the tribute. What would I correct? Basic things like ensuring the greens roll true and aren't damaged due to lack of maintenance. Useable golf balls at your practice facility. Also, bring back the bagpipes. What I wouldn't change? Overall, the staff is excellent. Very friendly.
Great facility and staff. Course is in great shape right now.
Great venue for a wedding.
Loved the course, the staff? Not so much. Most of the people I spoke to were dismissive and a couple were downright rude. When the group behind us hit into us while we were waiting for the green to clear, the marshal told us to pick it up and that wouldn’t happen!!! Sorry, but I will not be back.
Shot 78...Slow greens, didn't roll very true. Cart girl yapping and driving during my buddy's backswing in 18. I expected much much better for $138 on the weekend. Wont do that again.
Had many issues on may 11th tried to talk to the golf manager and he will not respond to listen to my issues expected more from a club like this!
Absolute beautiful course. It is a must play for sure. The rain this year has caused a little flooding, but who cares. It is still in great condition, and one of the best.
Great layout course is in good shape
Pleasant array of scenic holes. Ample challenge but not punitive to an average golfer. The sense of some Scottish holes is enjoyable, even if the lake is not the Irish Sea.
Nice course but very hard. If you do not like wind then do not play here. I played more than half of the holes listed in Scotland and they do a reasonable job of simulating the actual holes. Not bad for a US course.
Great course. Be careful of the poison ivy in the bushes when you lose your ball.
Great course. Great staff. Play here if you have the chance.
After the redo. Best course I have played in North Texas. The team have done a fantastic job this last summer fixing the greens. Wow! felt like I was in Scotland.
Had our wedding here a few years ago. They went above and beyond to make it perfect.
Heavy leaks and overpriced. Place looks outdated.
Great golfing experience. Course is manicured to perfection.
I have wanted to play this course for a long time. I guess the British Open got me wanting to play the links style course. Greens and fairways were immaculate. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Club house knew it was my first time there and gave some very helpful tips. Played on a Sunday, the only real complaint was it was packed. But it was the weekend and a popular course. Will definitely be back.
Course is great shape
Course was in great shape. Wind even cooperated for us.
My favorite gold club in Dfw area.
Id give it 5 stars but the staff kinda ruined the day. First of all practice balls were supposed to be included i n the price. Get to the driving range and they had just closed it but the person inside said it was open. Then we head to the starter and they said they didnt have us on the schedule but we booked and payed days in advance, so stuck another guy with us. The cartpath only sucked, and it wasnt even wet out. Course was in beautiful shape? And the layout was great . On hole 11 we were told to "Hurry up" because our 4 some wasnt keeping up with the 2 some which was only 1 hole ahead of us. AND WE WERE ONKY AN HOIR AND A HALF INTO OUR ROUND ON HOLE 11!!! Im sorry but that was disrespectful and rude, conisdering we were playing way faster than a normal round. Overal course was 4 stars but the ranger needs some common sense on pace of play.
Great layout of this challenging and well maintained course. Look forward to playing it again.
A very well kept, and beautifully maintained golf course. Absolutely a top flight experience. From the tee boxes, fairways, to the greens, this golf course is just a very entertaining layout.
What a wonderful idea to create a replica course! This was a very special experience for my son and I. The fairways are wide open for me, the higher handicapper and the greens we're a fun challenge for my 2 handicap son. He says the greens are fast and bumpy just like in Scotland. Good stuff guys, staff was great as well...
favorite course in dallas!
One of the coolest golf courses I’ve ever played. Very undulating, firm greens but roll true. Fairways in great condition. Would definitely recommend.
Great place for events with nice view of greens. The buffet had great choices if good, but refilling and busing service was slow. Decor and atmosphere is cozy.
Very nice course. Nice grasd and greens
Course overall in very poor condition. Greens a disgrace, which I later learned are so bad that the course is scheduled to be closed for two months to address. How a $73 green fee can be justified is beyond me. An extra star given for range facilities otherwise deserving of a 1 star rating.
Let me start with saying this a two Part review to be fair. I attended the tributes as a guest with a wedding party so I got to try it this place in two capacities. The golfing was not bad an organized attractive 18 hole designed to mimic Scottish courses, it was fun to play on, 3 Stars for the golfing. Second part of my review, the hotel. Now, as a person who hates vacationing due to the hate for hotel's and the stigma of dirt and bugs this didn't help that. First when you check in, you'll do this with the proshop, no checking in with a hotel clerk, you'll be given an old school door key not card, you will make your way upstairs and down one of two opposing hallways to your room. Once you get to your room you'll notice immediatly these room look old, they don't look like they've been updated since the late 90's at best, the most up date amenities is the TV that is an old school Lcd Tv. The furniture was old, they looked pulled from an 80's pick and pull, my bed was actually two twins pushed together, some rooms just had 2 queens, some a full king. Only moments after checking in would I notice there was no way to lock the room, you could bolt yourself in on the top but a simple door lock wasn't present as the staff attempted to open my door moments after getting ready, I asked what they needed and they asked me if my sheets were okay, that wasn't a good sign, I got in the shower to notice the tub was cracked open in several areas and the staff had used a bath liner to cover it up. I reported this and it didn't seem to be a big deal to staff. When I completed my shower I got dressed and attempted to walk out onto my balcony where I would promptly notice the balcony is shared which was fine until I realized it was shared with all the other room who balcony doors didn't appear to lock, which was great when I needed to break into my own room when my wife passed out early with the only key, the staff leaves somewhere after 7 and pretty much lock you in after a certain time into the hotel with you and the other guests but anyway back to the balcony the shared space and lack of apperant ability to lock my door concerned me luckily I was the only guest on my side so I didn't need to worry. On the other side my buddy had a room and an adjacent balcony that he wouldn't even go out on after discovering a huge wasp nest built above his doorway and a spider crawling his window. Speaking of bugs, the last night I was here I woke up with bites down my right arm, my wife believes misquote bit me through my dress shirt, possible I guess. I told her that it was most likely bed bugs, either way still got bit. This was the second to last thing that made me want to leave immeduatly only reason i didnt was due to the bridal event being held here. The last thing that killed it was just as we all got ready to go to bed after the recption the water was turned off, no abilirmty to shower, brush our teeth, use the restroom, nothing. When reported tgey said well get to it, when brought up again they stated weve contacted maintenamce, 8 hours later water i still off. The wedding is now over and i woke up extra early to check out first opportunity i have. This is kind of something I don't have to say but just in case my suggestion is for you to save your money, 100$ a night or more mine was based off a wedding contract so it mightve been cheaper for me, but save your money and get a cheap hooker hotel you'll feel more comfortable. Unless this place gets it act together I would strongly suggest they stop renting rooms it's an embarrassment to this golf course.
Very nice people
Amazing Mother's Day Brunch. Beautiful.
Beautiful, clean & great service!!! Lauren, Nikk, Sara & Kimberly are just amazing at what they do!!! Great experience we had at our event!!! Definitely recommend this place!!! Did i mention the chef threw down for us!! Great tasting food & refreshments!! Loved every minute of it!!!
Had a great time, shot well (80s), & the staff was very accommodating & helpful. Cart girls themed dressed in plaid & made great Bloody Marie's. Because there was a large outing after us there was a bagpiper in kilt and hat playing on the 18th green. WOW !!! Would definitely recommend it & would love to go back.
NOT worth $129. No ball washers ("it's hard to keep them full"), food is terrible, conditions slowly deteriorating. For the players club price it's fine, but not full price
Great place. Sara in the bar is great.
Course in excellent shape!
Great course. Excellent facilities
Great group of people! clean, friendly environment. Pro shop is well stocked and so is the bar. Great place for corporate and private events.
Everyone here is great. This is a great place to come and play golf. Would have been 5 star rating but the greens were jacked up and surely not up to their standards.
Conditions are pretty good compared to most public courses. Staff is helpful for the most part. This course needs a Marshall and ballwashers and that’s it.
Played here about a year ago, wasn't impressive, thus never returned here...
Nice course that is both challenging and enjoyable
Neat concept, the European version of Tour 18. Well cared for.
The course was in excellent shape and has some beautiful views. It’s quite pricey for what you get in my opinion. The carts don’t have computerized maps and yardage, and we only saw the cart girl once during our round.
A very good course. Links style course wide and long. Greens were in good shape fairways were also in great shape. A very pleasant round of golf. Sorry
Love the course. The staff are incredibly rude and messed up my tee time. I drove an hour for nothing...
Great course! Get the players club membership totally worth it!
Beautiful course, great greens.
I got married here on the 19th. My entire wedding from beginning to end was absolutely perfect, and the staff was wonderful! I worked with Katie and Hayley on the day of my wedding, and with Katie for many months beforehand. I could not ask for a better person to work with to make my big day everything I had been dreaming of. I cannot recommend the tribute enough!
Greens are in great shape
Very unprofessional staff that does not understand golf etiquette. They do not respond to issues on the golf course. Made a call on the 12 hole and didn't come out to the 16th.hole and was very rude.
Greens are fast and true!
Deteriorating course quality as it gets way too much play now. Still decent but no longer worth the money or drive if you live in the city proper.
Recently held a charity golf tournament here and had the BEST time. The staff is fantastic. They are friendly, eager to help and easy to make you smile during long, stressful days. The food was great, which is hard to say about most catering kitchens. They also coordinated well with our out-of-house dinner caterer. Thank you to the Tribute team for making our tournament run smooth, our guests feel appreciated and keeping our staff smiling!
Huge golf place with refreshments and also party halls available for rent with an average seating capacity of 200-250 ppl.
It's the most beautiful place to play and the service is excellent
Amateur starters, close their range at the slightest rain.
Great course with a very interesting layout. The greens are shaping up well as the fall season starts . The GreenKeepers seems to be putting a lot of work to maintain the bentgrass greens this summer. The fairways are decently wide and you still need to worry about errant shots. If they go into the natural grass, its gone goner goner*a. Overall - Great interesting course and for Mid and high handicapers, bring an extra sleve of golf balls.
Great golf course ! Rain or shine will play .
Many people are familiar with Tour 18 which is 18 of Americas great holes to play but the tribute I got to play some Carnoustie I got to play the old course it is an absolute beautiful 18 and for someone who loves to play golf and as many different places as I possibly can they gave me a chance to play a lot of lfthe world in one day
Beautifully located Country Club on the lake.
It was amazing. The food was amazing
Wow! What an amazing links course. This is the type of golf course I grew up playing in the UK. And to find it in Texas, what a gem! The proshop provided excellent service on a busy day and even arranged for a second round that same day without a teetime, just by squeezing us between 2 shotgun tournaments! The clubhouse can use an uplift, especially the grill and its very basic menu and mediocre food. Someone please manage the F&B here :(
I read some negative reviews about this course, but they obviously haven't been there lately. Course was great, range was great and range balls are free. Course was in excellent condition. There was even someone playing a bagpipe as we were finishing on the 17th and 18th. We weren't in Scotland, but it sure did seem like it!!!
Great history on each hole from some of golf's most distinguished places. Easy play with wide fairways.
Home course for Samesies Corp. RMO, Natcho, Antobey and Rhino give it 5 stars.
You can bomb it on this course. It has generous fairways. I would have liked faster greens and approach areas. There had been lots of rain so it was soft. The selected replica holes are very interesting, a great bunch of choices from some unknown gems.
Had a great time playing golf with my buddies. The course was in great shape. Never been to a course where you can pay for your early morning tee time and the pros will fix you a bloody Mary to start your round off on the right foot.
Course was in great shape. Only saw the cart girl twice. Once on hole 3 and once on hole 16?
Course is in awesome condition. One of DFW greats. It's a must play.
Beautiful. Segregated hidden from the city
Amazing golf course and design, great clubhouse and truly and Irish feel to the entire place. Also by the lake and feels like an escape from Dallas, just what we need! The reason for 4 stars is that they’ve made the access to the club cheap, and the last three times I’ve played the course has been in much worse shape than before, with lots of people. I get the decision and it’s probably allowed them to do better, but it’s a bummer for a player who would prefer to pay more for a fast experience. The course isn’t in bad shape, but the greens show the wear.
Previously had a very negative customer service incident with this course. However, went back last week and everyone was very friendly and helpful. The course is in decent shape except for the greens and tee boxes. The greens used to be bent grass and are now Bermuda. They are very bumpy and even the starter warned us that they need another season to mature. The tee boxes are quite rounded from being repeatedly sanded. Also, had to hit off mats at the driving range for some odd reason. The ground was not wet so not sure what that was about. In all, the course is okay but I still say it is not at all worth the $129 or even $89 rates. They have specials that are worth looking at.
I love how the place is and how decorative it is!!
Great place for a party.
The golf experience is fantastic...lots of well...holes from famous holes around the world. The facilities for the clubhouse/bar were great, but service at bar was a little slow. Otherwise, I would certainly golf here again.
Greens were just punched but the pro shop failed to share this information before we started our round. Great course, but not worth $100+ when the greens are in that shape.
Such a beautiful development right on Lake Lewisville!!
Smells like sewage and greens are aweful. Pub has moved for no reason and food is now limited to burgers. Lots of change but not for the better...
Whole course in great shape.
Always been one to my favorites!
New greens are smooth but very firm. Course is in good shape.
Not a bad golf course, but not worth the cost. I was a players club member until new ownership.
OK, so the 1st and 18th are cool. Very similar to St Andrews. But that's about it. The rest was a disappointment. For a low handicapper there's nothing in this course. Most of the tee shots you may as well be on the driving range. 50-60 yard fairways and even off the back tees the bunkers really aren't in play. And it's so not like Scotland. Not much run, soft bent greens and shallow bunkers. For business visitors to Dallas, like me, looking to play some golf in the late afternoon, Texas Star, Tierra Verda, WaterChase, Tangle Ridge and Tennison Park are not only better golf courses, but more than 50% cheaper. For what its worth, I've played 13 public courses in Dallas the last 2 weeks. The best conditioned, most challenging, and best value for money course I've played is WaterChase. Tierra Verda is a close second followed by Texas Star. The worst - Old American, followed by Iron Horse and The Tribute
The maintenance and greens are terrible. Its only saving grace is the range, just pay and play as long as you like. They come and refill the baskets with balls regularly, and it is rarely severely damaged.
Nice course, but wish there were more trees.
Best cartgirls on the planet!
Tough layout, really cool playing famous holes and the wind & water gives it a true links feel.
I went in the clubhouse lost and found to look for my putter. They accused me of being a thief and was very sarcastic. I tried to describe my putter and ask them to check the lost and found, they smirked and sarcastically asked if I was looking for a “free putter” When I got upset and left, I could hear them laughing. Horrible people
A terrific course - a great experience.
Fun to play this course with tributes to 18 great Scottish courses. Big, wide fairways and firm and dry U.K. style greens. Great location by Lk Louisville. A beautiful booming neighborhood has grown through around The Tribute.
Nice place. Okay employees. Not too friendly or welcoming. The space was great. We attended a wedding there and it was a nice wedding. However, it was outdoors under a tent and ot was hotttt! A couple of fans to cool the place down would have been perfect.
always enjoy being able to meet friends out there for a round!
We arrived early at The Tribute and had a great first impression. The lodge was beautiful inside and out. We paid our $80 to play and then asked about range balls. The pro shop employee told us range balls are included and available on the range. We drove down to the range and were greeted by an unkempt range, with "free" range balls scattered everywhere. I would have expected a nicer range from a golf course that seems to be very proud of themselves. The course itself is in decent shape. We saw lots of weeds, grass growing through bunkers, and overgrown tee boxes. While those conditions weren't the norm for each hole, they were prevalent. The greens were in good shape and very challenging. They offered a medium speed. Fringe was being aerated while we were there but that didn't bother the round. Overall, its a nice course however not worth $80. I have played at better for less.
Excellent staff and course.
The tribute of The Colony Golf is a nice place in which has a good restaurant supplies foods for peoples.
Great golf course... very challenging, but in great shape!
